BBC 10.16.02: "President Saddam Hussein has won 100%..."

We used to laugh at Saddam and his press secretary "Bagdad Bob"...
-
Here we are 10 years later... going down the same path with "un-challenged", "no-bid" candidates...

And the crowds lap it up.

Saddam 'wins 100% of vote'

Iraqi officials say President Saddam Hussein has won 100% backing in a referendum on whether he should rule for another seven years.
There were 11,445,638 eligible voters - and every one of them voted for the president, according to Izzat Ibrahim, Vice-Chairman of Iraq's Revolutionary Command Council.

Iraqis were afraid of American santcions and likely invasion

Americans are afraid also. Support the local tyrant or there will be one more thing to be fear.

Government is the tyrant. It is always the tyrant. It has never been anything but a tyrant.

Don't forget to Vote. Support government tyranny. (unless you are free and brave!)

Free includes debt-free!
