A group of 3 Dutch private citizens has formed an internationalist website called The World Votes to register worldwide choices in the 2004 Presidential Elections.
This is an obvious attempt to highlight the unpopularity of President Bush among the America-hating, envious, statist citizens of the UN-worshipping world. As election day draws closer, expect these clowns to be featured on important news stories worldwide in an effort to influence public opinion in the United States.
They are hoping to show that voting for Bush is an extremely unfavorable choice among the "world citizens", thereby dissuading the US citizens from voting for Bush, and instead, casting a ballot which better reflects the opinion of the World.
Great opportunity to Freep the polls, but expect to be overwhelmed by about 500-1 as election day approaches.
