Thank you, Andrew Meyer!

September 19, 2007

After John Kerry gave a speech, during a peaceful question and answer period, Andrew Meyer, holding investigative journalist Greg Palast’s book Armed Madhouse in his hand, respectfully asked him about quirkiness in the 2004 US elections.

He asked John Kerry why he conceded the election so easily when when there was voting day evidence of the suppression of African Americans votes and malfunctioning electronic voting machines that literally erased votes.

For being a concerned citizen, Andrew Meyer was dragged away by security thugs and tasered with thousands of volts of electricity while Kerry continued to answer a perfectly legitimate and very relevant and timely quesion. Furthermore, he was incarcerated in Alachua County, Florida.

Andrew Meyer exercised his patriotic duty in respectfully asking Senator John Kerry very important, timely, and relevant questions about the integrity of US democracy, questions that the mainstream media has utterly failed to properly address. Thankfully, independent news sources such as bradblog.com and blackboxvoting.org possessed the backbone lacking in mainstream journalists and filled in the vital information gap left by the mainstream war-profiteering media.

Andrew Meyer is an example to the world of what exercising freedom of expression means. It should never be taken for granted, not even in the United States of America.

Thank you, Andrew Meyer!

Spread the word.
