Us Election 2004: Bush won!


Notice from Moderators: Discussion on US Election 2004

Dear Members:

This is just to thank you all of those on behalf of MM Moderation Team who participated and contributed toward a lively debates on recent US election. Though some of the members of the Moderation Team leaned on one particular side, MM as a whole, did not endorse either of the two candidates. Moderators' stand was completely personal even though within USA itself practice of endorsing officially a particular candidate by many leading newspapers/think tanks is quite old, and it doesn't damage those newspapers' non-partisan stand. For example- the New York Times endorsed Governor George Pataki of Republican party during last Mayor election in New York City; however, same New York Times has endorsed Senator John Kerry, a Democrat, during recent presidential election. MM posted all the articles/messages both for/against the two candidates so that readers get a whole picture about the candidates' merits and demerits.

However, now since election is long over- we would like to stop all the existing threads on this issue. Exception may be the informative articles from trustworthy sources. No articles aimed at personal level will be posted any more.

Readers/writers are encouraged to send articles/write-ups that are off the mainstream news but devoid of any inflammatory languages. Let the rationale and facts speak for themselves. Thank you again for your continuous support!

Moderation Team, Mukto-Mona

I overheard this discussion as I was approaching my colleague’s office after the election day. These are two educated white southern conservative males living in Atlanta, Georgia, which is one of the strong conservative Republican states. I could not help say, “no wonder , and the rest of the world hates you guys so much.”... ...( Read more ... )

US Election 2004
Thoughts at the Final Moments

Whether one supports Bush, or Kerry- one thing is clear: US election 2004 is like no other election in the past. America's national security is at stake, within country there are other crisis' as well: crisis of economy, science, health benefits, social security system , to list a few. Outside USA, the biggest crisis America facing today probably is 'crisis of image'. Those who tend to dismiss such crisis as 'nonexistent' ,or 'restricted to Muslim world only' are deceiving none but themselves for it has not been even a month Daily News reported- with the only exception of Poland, majority people of all countries even in Europe dislike Bush's handling of war, alienating friends and aspire to see Kerry in the oval office in Washington DC....
