We still love Yo Gabba Gabba! I love a the seasons, especially season 4 however, after the "Olympics" episode in the 19th of August and later on, the makers of the show hasn't came up with any newer episodes so far!
What I really think they're actually doing are slacking off with those outrageous Aquabats for "The Aquabats Super Show" on the Hub channel while their characters are set of for more live tours. Seriously Nickelodeon, SERIOUSLY!!?? Now they're letting the creators of Team Umizoomi, Fresh Beat Band, and Bubble Guppies to take over the popularity (saying that probably they're more educational than this series).
Will someone just make a stink'n Season 4 episode??!? I have long dreamt that the creators of Rugrats and Blue's Clues would came back to revive their tv shows and make more episodes because they make some amazing animations!
We need you people and your young children to give us older fan a wee little favor and keep making this series beloved and hope that we will get our first YGG movie and spin-off. *praying for the movie and spin-off*
Facebook is a social-networking website, but not just any social-networking website. It is the most popular one on the web, causing people to be addicted almost instantly. Why should we waste away our lives on an addiction, especially one that is counter-productive? Look to the future and what do you see? I see a future where hardly anyone talks face-to-face anymore; it is all based off of the web.
Just imagine, there will definitely be something more popular and more addicting than Facebook, so this addiction will get worse, but we can stop it or at least decline it. We can fix it. We can shape the future.
Michael Jackson is an American musician, entertainer, and businessman. The seventh child of the Jackson family, he debuted on the professional music scene at the age of 11 as a member of The Jackson 5 and began a solo career in 1971 while still a member of the group. Referred to as the "King of Pop" in subsequent years, five of his solo studio albums have become some of the world's best-selling records: Off the Wall, Thriller, Bad, Dangerous and HIStory.
In the early 1980s, he became a dominant figure in popular music and the first African-American entertainer to amass a strong crossover following on MTV. The popularity of his music videos airing on MTV, such as "Beat It," "Billie Jean," and Thriller—credited for transforming the music video into an art form and a promotional tool—helped bring the relatively new channel to fame. Videos such as "Black or White" and "Scream" kept Jackson as a staple on MTV into the 1990s. With stage performances and music videos, Jackson popularized a number of physically complicated dance techniques, such as the robot and the moonwalk. His distinctive musical sound and vocal style influenced numerous hip hop, pop and contemporary R&B artists. One of the few artists to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, his other achievements include multiple Guinness World Records—including one for Thriller as the world's best-selling album—13 Grammy Awards, 13 number one singles in his solo career—more than any other male artist in the Hot 100 era—and the sale of over 750 million units worldwide.
Jackson's highly publicized personal life, coupled with his successful career, has made him a part of popular culture for almost four decades. In recent years he has been cited as one of the world's most famous men.
To the Right Honourable Prime Minister of Australia Kevin Rudd,
On June 12, 2009, millions of Iranians, many of whom have friends and family here in Australia, went to the polls to elect their next president. Unlike the 2005 presidential elections where 48% of the electorate voted in run-off elections to choose Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, many more voters were expected to and did turn-out to vote against his disastrous domestic and foreign policies.
However, even before a tally of the votes could be taken Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his supporters declared victory with 63% of the popular vote. With lightning speed his rival’s campaign headquarters were closed, many of their leaders were arrested and a heavy police and paramilitary presence was brought into the streets. Are these the actions of someone who has won a free and fair election?
Although the world does not yet realize it, on June 13th we witnessed an unprecedented coup d’état veiled in the guise of a popular election. If this coup is allowed to succeed and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corp (IRGC) are allowed to consolidate their power, not only will they pose a danger to the Iranian people, but will also become a much greater threat to the outside world.
The implications of this coup are far-reaching. Whereas before the hard-line elements in the IRGC were held in check by the Supreme Leader and the clergy, over the last four years they have come to assume a position of immense power in Iran.
This coup represents the consummation of their new position in the state, and has grave implications for the Iranian people, Australia and the Western world.
20 anos passaram desde o massacre de Tiananmen sem que o governo Chinês o tenha reconhecido. Nesta petição pedimos ao dirigente máximo do Congresso Nacional Popular isso mesmo.
A Congressional Gold Medal is an award bestowed by the United States Congress and is, along with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States. The decoration is awarded to an individual who performs an outstanding deed or act of service to the security, prosperity, and national interest of the United States. American citizenship is not a requirement.
The Gold Medal and the Presidential Medal of Freedom are generally considered to carry the same level of prestige (though significantly fewer Gold Medals have been awarded). The chief difference between the two is that the Freedom Medal is personally awarded by the President of the United States (executive branch), and Congressional Gold Medals are awarded by acts of the Congress (legislative branch). Per committee rules, legislation bestowing a Congressional Gold Medal upon a recipient must be co-sponsored by two-thirds of the membership of both the House of Representatives and the Senate before their respective committees will consider it.
Since the American Revolution, Congress has commissioned gold medals as its highest expression of national appreciation for distinguished achievements and contributions. Each medal honors a particular individual, institution, or event. Although the first recipients included citizens who participated in the American Revolution, the War of 1812 and the Mexican-American War, Congress broadened the scope of the medal to include actors, authors, entertainers, musicians, pioneers in aeronautics and space, explorers, lifesavers, notables in science and medicine, athletes, humanitarians, public servants, and foreign recipients.
Bob Dylan has been among the pre eminent artists of the 20th and 21st centuries in the United States. His impact on popular culture particularly in song form, performance and the creation of highly personal songwriting which is simultaneously deeply linked to American folk music and popular arts is unique and worthy of this singular award.
The show Popular was a show that was cancelled due to low ratings. Loyal fans were obviously unhappy. The show only ran on for 2 seasons [43 episodes] and 1 year [1999-2000]. It ended in a cliffhanger which the writer promised would be solved during the next season, and unfortunately there wasn't a next season.
The fans of the show protested, claiming that the writer promised a third season, which he indirectly did. Despite the unhappy fans, and there cries to the media, the show did not continue to air.
West Kingsdown has had a very popular bus service scrapped by the conservative party in 2002 leaving those elderly and disabled expected to pay out full fare on other means of transport, even though they have half fare passes and free passes.
Without the popular service the elderly and disabled are expected to travel a minimum of 6 miles for a pulbic service. The Conservatives are the problem here as they all use cars and they say everyone can walk 6 miles. They just sit on their backsides all day and do nothing
O VOTO ABERTO É UM DIREITO DO ELEITOR!
Sob o pensamento de que “Democracia se constrói com representação e transparência”, vários setores da sociedade têm, através de campanhas populares e até mesmo parlamentares de Assembléias legislativas e Câmara Federal, se empenhado ao máximo na condução do tema Voto Aberto, por meio de Abaixo-Assinado.
Abrir o voto dos deputados e dos senadores é permitir que o eleitor acompanhe as posições de seus representantes. É impedir que parlamentares votem contra a vontade da sociedade e se escondam no sigilo do voto, como está acontecendo nos últimos meses na Câmara dos Deputados.
O voto aberto não é, no entanto, garantia de bom voto. Mas, com certeza, nos permite colocar mais um tijolo nesta longa e difícil construção que é a democracia brasileira. Sabendo como votam os parlamentares em questões cruciais, é possível cobrar deles explicações e mudanças de posição. Só com a pressão da sociedade é que poderemos fazer com que o legislativo brasileiro desista de manter-se de costas para a vontade do eleitor.
Nós, da sociedade civil, estamos nos organizando em vários Estados, chmando a atenção do Legislativo para a instituição do VOTO ABERTO em todas as deliberações da Câmara, do Senado, do Congresso Nacional, das Assembléias Legislativas, da Câmara Legislativa do Distrito Federal e das Câmaras Municipais, de acordo com a PEC 349/01, aprovada por unanimidade em primeiro turno em setembro de 2006.
Na esperança que tínhamos em ser aprovada pela Câmara a matéria em questão, a mesma foi obstruida por fatos polítcos não menos importante mas, considerando a moralização no Congresso Nacional tão necessária neste País, urge a mobilização popular mais do que nunca para que o VOTO ABERTO seja instituído na esfera do Poder Legislativo Brasileiro.
TODO PODER EMANA DO POVO!
10. Vote out College
The electoral college is one of the many compromises written into the t United States Constitution in 1787. The founding fathers devised the electoral college to elect the president but they did not anticipate the emergence of national political parties or a communications network able to bring presidential candidates before the entire electorate.
Providing that the president be chosen indirectly through the “electoral college” rather than directly by the voters in November was one of the founders’ hedges against “popular passion.” In the beginning, the electors had very real powers to work their will. Now, their sole function is to confirm a decision made by the electorate six weeks earlier.
Under the Constitution, each state is authorized to choose electors for president and vice president, the number always being the same as the combined number of U.S. senators and representatives allotted to that state. With 100 senators and 435 representatives in the United States, plus three electors for the District of Columbia provided by the Twenty-third Amendment, the total electoral college vote is 538.
Makeup and operation of the electoral college itself are tightly defined by the Constitution, but the method of choosing electors is left to the states. In the beginning many states did not provide for popular election of the presidential electors. Today, however, electors are chosen by direct popular vote in every state.
When voters vote for president, they are actually voting for the electors pledged to their presidential candidate. (Electors are named by state party organizations. Serving as an elector is considered an honor, a reward for faithful service.)
With the political parties in control of presidential politics, the function of the electoral college has changed drastically. Rather than having individuals seek to become electors and then vote for whomever they please for president, the parties have turned the process upside down by arranging slates of electors, all pledged to support the candidate nominated by the party.
In the earliest days of the electoral college, quite the opposite was true. Electors cast their votes for individual candidates rather than for party slates, with the majority winner being elected president and the runner-up, vice president. This made for some bizarre situations, as in 1796 when the Federalist John Adams, with 71 votes, became president and the Democratic-Republican Thomas Jefferson, with 68, vice president- roughly equivalent in modern times to an election in which Bush and Dukakis would end up as president and vice president.
In 1800 Jefferson and his running mate, Aaron Burr, each won an identical number of electoral votes, forcing the election into the House of Representatives, which resolved it in Jefferson’s favor. It was to avoid any similar occurrence that the Twelfth Amendment was passed in 1804. This amendment required the electors to cast two separate ballots, one for president and the other for vice president. This is the only constitutional change that has been made in the electoral college system, other than to add three electoral votes for the District of Columbia in 1961.
Presidential and vice presidential candidates of a party run as a team. In most of the states, it is the names of the candidates rather than the names of the electors that appear on the ballot; in the other states, both candidates and electors are identified. The victor in each state is determined by counting the votes for each slate of electors; the slate receiving the most votes (the plurality, not necessarily the majority of the votes cast) is declared the winner.
To be elected to the presidency a candidate must receive an absolute majority (270) of the electoral votes cast. If no candidate receives a majority, the House of Representatives picks the winner from the top three, with each state delegation in the House casting only one vote, regardless of its size. Only two U.S. elections have been decided this way (1800 and 1824).
The vice president is elected at the same time by the same indirect winner-take-all method that chooses the president, but the electors vote separately for the two offices. If no vice presidential candidate receives a majority, the Senate picks the winner from the top two, each senator voting as an individual. The Senate has not made the choice since 1836.
Another problem cited by critics is the possibility of “faithless electors” who defect from the candidate to whom they are pledged. Most recently, in 1976, a Republican elector in the state of Washington cast his vote for Ronald Reagan instead of Gerald Ford, the Republican presidential candidate. Earlier, in 1972, a Republican elector in Virginia deserted Nixon to vote for the Libertarian party candidate. And in 1968, Nixon lost another Virginia elector, who bolted to George Wallace.
The main danger of faithless electors is that the candidate who wins the popular vote could wind up one or two votes short of a majority in the electoral college and could lose the election on a technicality. This prospect becomes more probable when there are third-party or independent candidates who could negotiate with electors before they vote.
Those who argue in favor of retaining the present system state that there is too much uncertainty over whether any other method would be an improvement. They point out that many of the complaints about the electoral college apply just as well to the Senate and, to some extent, to the House. They fear that reform could lead to the dismantling of the federal system.
11. As If on DVD!!

Under Cover Brother was one of the most popular films in the year 2002/2003. The movie made $12 million in its first week and has grown more popular during the last 3 years (largely helped by its DVD release).
Lead star Eddie Griffin (Deuce Bigalow 1 and 2, Date Movie) has voiced his enthusiasm to make a sequel, unfortunately Universal are reluctant and have axed the project.
If you have not yet seen the movie- go and do so now. It is one of the most hilarious movies of all time, and actually has depth and meaning to back this up.
I URGE YOU TO SIGN THIS PETITION AND HELP EDDIE AND DENISE STAR IN A SEQUEL TO THIS AMAZING MOVIE!
Carbon Leaf is my favorite band. But not enough people have heard of them.
Please, PLEASE make them popular so everyone can hear of them.
Primus (currently comprised of Les Claypool, Larry laLonde, and Tim Alexander) were a very popular alternative/funk-metal band in the early and mid-90's.
Their influence has been tremendous and they have been considered among the 90's most popular bands, when the Rock N' Roll hall of Fame begins inducting bands from the 90's into the Hall of Fame, Primus should not be overlooked.
We would like to see this amazing band be inducted into the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame.

This petition was created in protest of the Class of 2006 Senior Gift Scholarship, which won second place to that of Root Glen extension.
The Root Glen extension rightfully won the popular vote and should therefore be pursued.
REASON FOR PETITION: The following interview was given just before the opening of the new pier and the following statements were made by The New Pier Management and we as pier Patrons/Anglers expect the management to abide by the statements that were made in the following Newspaper Interview in 2004 prior to the completion of the new Jacksonville Beach Pier.
Fishermen will be front and center at the new Jacksonville Beach Pier.
That's the word from the folks chosen to manage the 1,300-foot pier, which is expected to open around the end of November.
"That's our primary focus -- fishing," said Don Streeter, a partner in Dania Pier Management. "I think this thing is going to be awesome. There's nothing on the Florida East Coast that equals it in length."
Dania Pier Management operates piers in Dania Beach, Deerfield Beach and Juno. The company was awarded the contract after the city of Jacksonville put out bids to manage the pier. While several groups expressed interest, Dania Pier Management was the only respondent.
"We were doing our own research, talking to cities and counties [with privately managed piers]," said Debbie Doran, of the city's Department of Administration and Finance. "All of them were very pleased with Dania Pier Management."
The firm's contract runs for five years, with a provision to renew for another five years.
When plans for the new pier were first being developed, local fishermen expressed fears it might become not much more than a boardwalk designed to attract tourists. Not to worry, Streeter said.
"We're going to do everything we can to make it where the fisherman is the main priority," he said. "Whatever the fishermen want -- whether it's live shrimp, greenies. If it's available, we'll have it."
The pier's main building will house restrooms and a bait and tackle shop. Rental rods will be available, and popular pier lures and other tackle will be sold.
"All piers are different," Streeter said. "Here in Dania, they very rarely fish with plugs or lures. But in Juno, 80 percent of them use lures."
Streeter recently met with Doran, and he'll submit a list of recommendations, including admission fees and hours.
"They're in the business of operating piers, so I'm sure we'll look closely at their recommendations," Doran said.
Streeter's plans call for the same admission fees charged by the old pier. Ronnie Waterman, who once managed the old pier, said admission fees were $3.75 to fish, 75 cents to walk.
Streeter is also recommending that the new pier be open from one hour before sunrise to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday. On Fridays and Saturdays, the closing time would be 11 p.m.
"That's the way we're going to start off, and if the demand is there, we'll extend the hours," Streeter said.
Dania Pier Management's Juno pier is open from 30 minutes before sunrise to sundown. The company's other two piers are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Streeter, who plans to live in Jacksonville Beach at least temporarily, expects to hire several people to run the new pier.
The pier is expected to feature four fish-cleaning stations, two on each side. The original architect's plans included cleaning stations only on the north side, but Streeter recommended southside stations for use during colder months.
"If you've ever tried to clean fish facing into the wind during the winter ...," Streeter said. "The city has been very receptive to ideas. They're in agreement, if it benefits the pier and the fishermen, they're open to discussion."
The old Jacksonville Beach Pier held a popular annual tournament for surface and bottom species. Streeter said the new pier may also stage some kind of competition. Last year, on opening day of snook season, the Dania Pier conducted a $5 Calcutta pool for the first legal snook caught and the heaviest legal snook.
"If we get notice a good run of blues is coming down from the Carolinas, we might institute something like that," Streeter said.
Benches on the pier will be built back to back with space in between. Streeter has plans to install wind breaks that would fit in that space. Trash receptacles are scheduled to be emptied once a day.
Stop India from Exporting Terrorism to Nepal.
India has been creating economical as well as political problems for Nepal for the last 58 years it has become Independent from the British. Nepal wanted to become trade free zone just like Singapore, it pressurized Nepal to abandon the idea. It wanted to turn to market economy 20 years ago but India forced it to have high custom tariff. India is building dams in the border area to flood Lumbini the birth place of Lord Budha so no tourist will visit this submerge area.
Nepal has to endure Indian arm twisting because it is landlocked so it has to use Indian port for sea cargo. It took ten years to convince India to allow Nepal to link India port with railway and another three years for the train to star service after completion of the railway link. Even after 15 years the railway link in not functioning properly. India has denied Nepal right of transits numerous times and dictating its terms on Nepal economy, as a result it is now one of the poorest country in the world. Now Indian foreign minister is threatening Nepal that it has leverage against Nepal which is noting but Nepal geographical compulsion to ship cargo through India.
India has been exporting terrorism to its neighbouring countries to keeps these countries in line to the Indian wishes. Terrorism as been the inbuilt nature of Indian politics. According to very credible numbers published by human-rights groups and the Punjab judiciary, the government of India has murdered more than 250,000 Sikhs since 1984, in excess of 200,000 Christians in Nagaland since 1947, almost 75,000 Kashmiri Muslims since 1988, and tens of thousands of Assamese, Tamils, Manipuris, Dalits, and others. In 1994, the US State Department reported that the Indian government paid out over 41,000 cash bounties to police officers for killing members of the Sikh minority.
An Indian Prime Minister was killed in office resulting from hobnobbing with terrorist. A former Prime Minister Mr. Rajib Ghandi who supported and armed one of the deadliest terrorist LITTE against Sri Lanka and as result was killed by them. In 1985 it armed and trained Ramraja P. Singh in India to conduct various terrorism activities in Nepal the result was several innocent civilian were killed.
After fourteen years of corruption and misrule by corrupt politicians King of Nepal has taken a popular step and assumed direct rule. The result has been positive. Whith the polular support of the general public peace in returing to the country. Kathmandu has seen four months without bombing or innocent people being killed. It this the first time in decade three months have gone without any kind of forced strikes in Kathmandu and other towns of the country. Gradually situation in becoming normal in the country side.
Normal Nepal has chance of being out of grip of India. So now India in supporting terrorist Nepal Communist Party (Maoist) to fight against the Nepal Army. It is repeating the same story it did with Sri Lanka. Recently several terrorist who have red corner notice from the Interpol have been reported holding meetings with Indian Intelligence Agency and Politicians. India is planning to arm and train terrorist to teach Nepal a lesson.
You can help Nepal in this hour of crisis, please sign and forwad below email to President George W. Bush and a copy to Vice President Richard Cheney. Their email address are

This petition was started on the evening of 9th May 2005, after Digitalspy.co.uk revealed that David and Lil are going to be axed from Neighbours.
The forums instantly became full of people who were annoyed at the axeing. Family life is an integral part of Neighbours, and the Bishops are a faveourite, now that the Scully / Kenneday / Robinson clan have now departed.
David and Lil are very popular charactors, with plenty of chemistry. It is essential that they are saved.
Crash Bandicoot is a very popular video game series, but it's the only one that does not have a cartoon. Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario Brothers have cartoons, but not a Crash one.
Me and a few other fans would like to see this happen. If you would, listen to us loyal Crash Bandicoot fans, and let our dreams come true by making a cartoon for the video game series.
The Star Wars Gangsta Rap is a very funny online song/music video hosted at atomfilms.com that the public would definitly enjoy. Already it has millions of fans it attracted from the internet humor community.

There is a proposed ordinance in Chicago that might make owning a ferret in Chicago illegal. We can't have this. Ferrets are not dangerous, do not carry monkeypox or rabies, and are the third most popular pet just behind dogs and cats! This ordinance needs to remove ferrets from the list.
At the end of the 2nd season it ended with SO many doors left open, well, I think a 3rd season is needed.
Recently, one of the most entertaining
features of a very popular website was
ruined for no apparent reason. The
website was Neopets.com, the feature:
its famous chat boards. While there are a few similarities between the old and new chat boards, there are massive
differences. For example, if you went on the old chat boards and clicked on
"General Chat", it would take you to a
page that, with no bells and whistles,
linked to several separate message
boards. People who created the
message boards could post in either
plain, italic, bold, or the former two
combined. There were no pictures on the board except for basic, unanimated
smiley faces that could be inserted into text.
It was a simple and beautiful system.
And now, out of nowhere, this new
system was shoved in. Instead of simple chat boards that let us just chat, we have boards that are so stuffed with unnecessary features that they load too slowly to allow the natural flow of conversation! We can no longer can customize our posts, they are all automatically bold. I ask you, do we really need things bolded for us? Do we need avatars to slow down the flow of conversation just for the sake of bells and whistles? Do we need every post to be outlined in its own box, when they were perfectly easy to read before? The answer is no. We need to send this message to
the Neopets Team: we want you to KISS
the chat...Keep It Simple Stupid(s)!
Why do we want it simple? Because chat
should be about chatting, about
communicating and sharing ideas, not
about showing off with a fancy chat
system or images! The internet itself
should be about creative pages that
express feelings and use images in
artistic ways, not about having pages that are jammed with so much clipart and fancy HTML that it cheapens the real meaning of the pages. We're not in favor of the internet returning to all text, but we feel these add-ons should be used to ENHANCE the purpose of the page, not lessen it. If Neopets, one of the post popular sites on the internet, gets away with changing its chat boards, other sites
will imitate. When will they stop? Maybe never, maybe pages will keep getting more and more crowded until only those rich enough to afford fast internet connections will be able to enjoy what is supposed to a global resource. The point is: We believe the simple fact is that chat boards should be about CHATTING.
So if you feel like we feel, if you are in favor of a KISS approach to webpage design, SIGN THIS PETITION. Even if you don't plan to use the Neopets chat boards, sign it for the principals we have presented. Because, really, aren't communication and free speech what the internet should be all about?

In autumn of 1999, The WB network debuted the TV series "Popular," a refreshingly clever dramedy set in high school about two girls from opposite social spheres forced into sisterhood when their parents make a love connection. Saturated with scathing humor, pop culture references and social angst, "Popular" explored e-generation ambition and the teen crusade for popularity, acceptance and clear skin among the two girls and their feuding cliques.
In 2001, The WB unceremoniously truncated the show's two-year run after falsely leading the producers and fans to believe the show would be returning for another season. Much to everyone's chagrin, the final image of the series was a disturbing and violent cliffhanger which would never be resolved. However, we the fans beseech Buena Vista Home Entertainment to consider producing DVD boxed sets of the complete series so we can forever live the memory of this amazing show.
Over the past 20-30 years reptile keeping has been very favored to select groups of people. These hobbiests would get a special feeling and bond with these fascinating creatures. Safe and clean housing was practised and everything was fine until the past 5 years when the pet trade caught on to the idea and reptile keeping and breeding became extremly popular. With the sudden demand for these extremly popular animals safe handling and clean housing was lost not for all but for some new to the hobby.
Now a new challenge has arised the HSUS is determine to eliminate the entire hobby of reptile keeping. Making up excusses finding week points anything to win but we fight back with education. With more people understanding how to take care of these acient animals then the hobby can be saved for future generations. There have been very view cases of salmonella over the years herptrologist who know everything about reptiles and study them can prodly say there is a very low risk of salmonella the HSUS just needs an excuss so please don't give it to them read befor you buy and act responisbly.
EDUCATE THE PUBLIC DON'T TAKE AWAY OUR HOBBY. education first before ahnnilation! REPTILES ARE MISUNDERSTOOD LETS WORK TOGTHER TO EDUCATE PEOPLE AND SHOW THEM THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT HOW DOCILE AND WONDERFUL THESE ANIMALS CAN BE!
Uno de los rasgos más sobresalientes de la democracia es el respeto a la voluntad popular, ejercida a través de los procesos electorales en un marco de tolerancia y pluralismo. Una de los principales virtudes de los gobernantes es saberse reconocido y aceptado por el pueblo y que su mandato se produce por la voluntad soberana de la mayoría, como una forma no sólo moderna y civilizada de gobierno, sino además inteligente.
Muchos se preguntan con justificada extrañeza: ¿Por qué el gobierno cubano no somete su legitimidad al escrutinio público y toda exhortación en tal sentido la interpreta como un acto despreciable? ¿Por qué el gobierno cubano no permite los sindicatos independientes, los partidos políticos y los organismos de derechos humanos? Un gobierno que proclama que la gran mayoría del pueblo lo respalda, por qué no celebra elecciones libres? Si tiene confianza en el respaldo público, ¿por qué entonces no se le consulta? ¿Por qué no se le permite al pueblo desplegar su soberanía a través de las urnas?
Parece ser que enfrentar el desafío que conlleva un proceso electoral libre es un reto que el gobierno cubano no está dispuesto a asumir. Unas elecciones honradas, pluralistas y transparentes romperían el absurdo principio del centralismo democrático, que no es más que la obsesión por el control total de la sociedad. Cuba no puede continuar por el camino del inmovilismo. El gobierno cubano teme a las elecciones libres porque sería desde luego el único medio efectivo que socavaría la estructura totalitaria y se permitiría al pueblo decir la última palabra. No a través del turbio mensaje de las consignas gubernamentales, sino a través del civilizado y claro camino de las urnas.
La democracia, digámoslo una vez más, se ejerce en las urnas. La voluntad popular, el respeto a la inteligencia del pueblo tiene una forma correcta de manifestarse y es mediante un libre proceso electoral. El pueblo de Cuba necesita elecciones libres y competitivas. Las urnas son el único camino de las sociedades modernas y progresistas. El gobierno cubano está en el deber de someterse al cívico camino de las elecciones libres y democráticas. El derecho ciudadano así lo exige.
The grand theft auto series has been one of the most popular sagas to date. It has been an excellent experience. However, with the new title, GTA Vice City, I was informed it would not be online.
