Three times in two weeks, the Kerry campaign and the Democratic Party shredded the Constitution of the United States of America. They did so near the place where America was born Philadelphia just miles from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.
On October 19, 2004, a movie theater in Jenkintown Pennsylvania, a suburban borough just north of Philadelphia with a population of about 4500, was scheduled to show the documentary Stolen Honor. This movie features the testimony of Vietnam POWs critical of John Kerry.
However, after receiving threats of "civil disobedience" (i.e. destruction of property and possible physical intimidation), the owner of the theater canceled the showing. Because of Stalinist intimidation, nearly 400 people were denied the opportunity to see a movie simply because it was critical of a presidential candidate.

The Kerry campaign has taken this to an extreme unparalleled by any campaign in my lifetime.
I'm amazed at the lengths and depths of barbarism the Democrat Machine will go to obtain power in the 21st Century.
This needs to be well documented and once they've stolen the election, they must be made to account. We mustn't allow this to be repeated in the next election cycle and mustn't be allowed to be swept away by planned false assertions of disenfranchisement and indimidation. It will only get worse *especially* if Bush is, by some miracle, re-elected.
This is more evidence of how far left the Dems have gone. They are no longer "the loyal opposition", they are core members of the "hate America at all costs" group.
That party has become a Communist criminal conspiracy led by actual, but undeclared, communists, and supported by criminals.
