No matter who's president
It looks like George W. Bush is going to be elected as the next president
of the United States. A friend said the following about the president-elect:
George W. has his father's charisma, his mother's intelligence and ex-president
Nader cost Gore the election. I am not surprised that Nader received
such a low percentage of votes. I met him in 1988 and I like him a lot
as a person, he is an honest man. His free medical care sounded nice but
who was going to pay for it? Healthcare does not have the strong lobbying
group which military sector has. Moreover, implementing a free medical
care system would not be easy in a capitalistic system.
Iran and Iranians should take care of themselves. Regardless of who
is elected, Iranians must participate peacefully in the democratic process
and voice their opinions. Our contributions must be recognized regardless
of who is in the office.
