The Major Media Is Asleep, Voters Get A Suprise - Someone Besides Bush/Kerry To Vote For
by Mad Studios Saturday, Oct. 23, 2004 at 7:00 AM
“Voting for the lesser of two evils is a coward’s way out. Be brave enough to vote your conscience.” -Michael Badnarik http://www.BushOutTheDoorIn2004.org This is the video and audio Bush doesn't want you to find out about.
We're going to win. Because some of us have honor and we know that we have heroes left. We have instinctive drives to fight for our people, to fight for humanity, to fight against tyranny, to fight against corrupt, criminal law enforcement like they have in Russia or Mexico. It's an idea that our forefathers fought and died for. The price of Freedom is eternal vigilence. It's just that simple.
Badnarik Gets Arrested At 2ND Presidential Debate 100804.mp3

Badnarik was arrested trying to enter the debate to serve legal papers,

The Bush vs Badnarik Video that's too controversial even for the Libertarians:
Who Do You Trust, from Mad Studios, is certain to make you think.
Take a look(direct link to 45.8 Windows [.wmv] format video):
And don't forget, tell George Bush, I second what this guy says:
'That's not the way the world really works anymore,' he continued. 'We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.''
Michael Badnarik, Presidential nominee of the Libertarian Party, is
on the ballot in 48 states. Before Bush came to power, the Libertarian
Party has been on the ballot in all 50 states since 1992. While never
getting a large percentage of the vote, they are, without dispute, the
third largest political party in the country with more supporters and
elected officials than all the other third parties combined.
Which is why it is a little funny that the national news media in this
country completely ignores Badnarik, not only not giving him any coverage,
but also by not including him in any polls.
Channel One is an independent media station for schools that is broadcast
via satellite and is viewed in tens of thousands of schools across the nation.
They emphasize "The Power of One" and are now (today and tomorrow) conducting
the largest mock election for 6-12 grades in American history via voter codes
and the internet. Here is a screenshot of the ballot:
As you can see, it only lists Bush and Kerry. What kind of message does
that send to our children? What kind of message does that send to the
rest of the world?
As of 10-19-04, USA Today was only listing one other choice besides Bush or
Kerry. No doubt they will quickly change it, but right now, only Nader, who
is only on the ballot in 35 states, is shown besides Bush and Kerry. Even
Peroutka, of the Constitution Party, is on the ballot in more states than
Nader, with 36 states. and he is not listed either.
The USA Today and our children's Channel One are typical of the media coverage
of Badnarik and not some isolated exception. Remember how much coverage the
Presidential Debates got, with record numbers of viewers? Remember the universal
reviews of boredom with the staged questions? It's not suprising when you
consider what they intentionally left out. CNN and Fox News both had cameras
outside at the second Presidential Debate, but here is what they have
decided you did not need to see or know about....
A Possible News Story:
October 8TH, 2004 The Presidential Debates, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
What if some other country were having an election, and citizens were only
allowed to hear from two government-approved candidates? What if their
opposition, candidates on the ballot in a majority of states, were arrested
on the orders from the leader in power, during the Presidential Debates,
would this be news?
The USA Today, the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle,
New York Daily News, Seattle Times, Indianapolis Star, Boston Globe, Seattle
Post Intelligencer, Miami Herald, San Francisco Chronicle, San Diego Union
Tribune, Kansas City Star and a long list of other so-called newspapers decided
for whatever reason to spike the story.
There have been documented instances where people have gone on Fox News and CNN
and been told that they would not be allowed to say Badnarik's name. This
country is 14 days away from a presidential election and there has been no
national exposure of the 3rd party alternatives available to the voters.
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization,
it expects what never was and never will be. The functionaries of every
government have propensities to command at will the liberty and property
of their constituents. There is no safe deposit for these but with the
people themselves; nor can they be safe with them without information.
Where the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe."
"Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances
of the abridgment of the freedom of the people, by gradual and silent
encroachments of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations."
