American Coup: We Wuz Robbed! - Take a deep breath-or better yet, a stiff drink. Don't watch any news if it makes you too sick, and try to get plenty of fluids (hopefully of the aforementioned variety). But before succumbing to the war fever that is supposedly gripping the nation, take time to think a bit. See... Guest Opinion: Suffering Suffrage!.

Land Of The Captured, Home Of The Frightened - We've said it before, and we'll keep on saying it: A country whose leader has the power to imprison any citizen, on his order alone, and hold them indefinitely, in military custody, without access to the courts, without a lawyer, without any charges, their fate determined solely by the leader's arbitrary whim -- that country is a tyranny, not a democracy, not a republic, not a union of free citizens...

American Coup: The Other Crooked Election Machine Company - The lack of any exit polling on November 5 has been oddly ignored by the media.

American Coup: What Do The Numbers Show? - Scoop's analysis shows that - according to the polls - the Republican Party experienced a pronounced last minute swing in its favour of between 4 and 16 points.

US Elections: A Multitude Of Questions
