    I beg to differ. Remember slavery? Or what Columbus did with the native Americans? Blanket statements like that benefit no-one.


Re-read that. I didn't say "America is a shiny happy land of rainbows and holding hands among all the people of the world." We've certainly had our problems with racism and balkanization, same as every country. I just pointed out the difference in our histories, and the different attitudes toward immigration America has from Europe because of it. During Slavery we were a multi-ethnic nation of immigrants. During Columbus - uh, we weren't even a nation then. That was you guys fucking everything up to start with.

I think that most objectors have accepted the fact that the recall _is_ legal. That doesn't make its actual workings seem logical or particularly fair when the process is invoked. Davis won with a clear plurality in 2002, 47% to 42%.
