The election wasn't nearly as close or derisive as the 2000 election. Both sides monitored for fraud and the system worked! If you are unhappy with the outcome, stay and fight for your opinions - that's how a democracy works.

And really, these things aren't as simple as they seem and cannot be summarized in two sentences.

There are just as many American hands in the game aswell as Canadians. When you're making 2 or 3 million a year, is a small pay cut really going to break your budget? Eventually a deal is going to be made, so what's the hold up? Do they even care about the fans?
I think a pay cut would be great as long as the price of tickets come down too! What's the average ticket price now like, 80 bucks?

Simplicity is always brilliant.

Yet; what really scares me is covered in the new book: "The Hammer", the story of Tom Delay, the Republican leader in the House of Representatives. This guy is running the US Congress the same way Tony Soprano runs New Jersey. Actually, he makes Tony seem rather unimaginative.
Several years ago, Dem. Sen. Paul Tsongas, and Rep. Sen. Warren Rudman saw some real problems brewing. They started the "Concord Coalition" to try to get some sanity into campaign finance; they got McCain-Fiengold which only addressed some of the problems.
According to the book, especially since 2001, it looks like political contributions, especially from Corporations and Industry Groups, are different from extortion in name only. In fact, the real extortion is being perpetrated against the Congress itself; surprisingly often against Republicans. This is way, way, beyond what occurred previously in American government.
There seems to be right now some tricky campaign violations under investigation in Texas.
This week, DeLay pushed through a measure in the House, that if he happens to be indicted in Texas, he can still keep his leadership job.
If Republican Congressmen had not voted for the measure; they would face new, well financed primary opposition in their next race while at the same time their own contributions would mysteriously dry up.
No matter what side of the aisle you're on - read the book. This is not good for anyone in America.

of all of you that are complaining about Bush being back--- did you vote? Do you have the right to say anything? If you didnt vote -- you don't. And you hate Bush? At least he sticks to his words -- if he tells ya he's gonna do it --- he's gonna back his words up. He doesn't back down because "that is what the p/r says will be better".
Does Bush really stick to his words? Like, he said he will destroy Afghanistan and Iraq, he did. The background that was presented for these wars has not been proved yet as; Usama Bin Laden not found, but thousands of Afghani's martyred. Weapons of mass destruction not found in Iraq, but a thousand of Iraqi's martyred and being killed to this day.
Bush said he will find Usama and WoMD, but nothing done yet.
What about the Middle East Issue, at one place he said he would work for peace in Palestinian state and stop bloodshed and gunfire and also work for their freedom. The very next day, and I mean the very next day, America donated some 2 billion dollars worth of Ammunition to Israel.
Is that guy really keeping up to his words? I dont think so. He has not caused problems to his country only(But I now believe that America is out of trouble now and the alerts are fake just to get the attention), but to a lot of other countries as well. Like anyone supporting America dies, but America lives on with no problems....
And probably because the policies of this government are too bad to be acceptable, the leading senators resigned recently.
