It means, essentially, that the Governance of America has been usurped, and an illegitimate power has installed itself. This theft of power is something we are so unused to (we see it elsewhere all the time), that everywhere people are in denial. Our minds try to insist - it could not happen here.
The Press ignores the reality of the meaning of the difference between the reported results of the election and the exit polls. The proof is there for those who do not want to sleep. It has not helped that the Democrats, especially Kerry, did not stand up for the American voter.
Kerry won the election, and the powerful were allowed to steal it at the electronic ballot box. The Republic has been betrayed, and the only question is how long will it take for the People, and/or for the judgment of history to acknowledge this.
The Democrats should have refused to participate in Washington. Think of what it would mean, if they would have walked away from the halls of Congress, and proclaimed the Presidency to be in the hands of traitors to the Republic. But this kind of standing upright for the truth, and in support of the real will of the American voter, is not in the character of politicians. They are not about what is right, and haven't been about what is right for a long time now. They are truly only concerned with the commerce of power, their own privileges, and the wishes of their masters - the elite lords of finance.
What can be done you ask?
We can write a new constitution. Go here for details: Prelude to a Second American Constitution: strategy and tactics in the War the Rich make upon the Poor.
