I wonder if you might have a different repsonse if Jesse Helms had not writtem
the original
post. The Clinton-Gore policy on Haiti has been a failure..just like the policies
of other
previous administrations. Whether one is democrat (like myself), republican,
leftist or conservative, the facts speak for themselves.Even from the mouth of
the greates liar sometimes comes the truth. Wishful thinking, denial, or
investment of one's blind faith in political rhetoric, won't make the truth go
away. What kind of "democracy" doesn't allow for the voice of  an opposition,
what kind of democracy is it in which power and authority are not legitimate but
are rather tied to the personality of one person? What kind of democracy is it
wherein the state deliberately and historically underdevelops, and continues to
underdevelop its own nation to the very brink of famine? Democracy is a process,
and one that requires, as well as welcomes, the participation of all..that means
people who have, and need not fear, voicing opposing views. But then perhaps
democracy is not what you have in mind.
