Editor, Time Magazine:BACK TO THE BBBR ACTIVISM HQ
I want to tell you why I just cancelled my subscription to Time Magazine. I am disgusted that your Person of the Year is a fascist. George W. Bush ascended to the Presidency of the U.S. by using the corrupt tactics of a ruthless dictator with powerful associates. Al Gore got many more votes both outside and inside of Florida. In a Democracy this fact would make him President. But in Dictatorship there are other means. Bush used them all:
-His cousin John Ellis, not coincidently employed by Fox news, consulted with Bush five times on election eve, then made Fox the first network to wrongly declare Bush winner.
-His campaign co-chair Katherine Harris, not coincidently Florida's Secretary of State, repeatedly ordered legal hand recounts halted, thereby fatally delaying them.
-His brother Jeb, not coincidently Florida's Governor, publicly encouraged his Legislature to appoint their own electors if Gore got more votes. It ended up being unnecessary because.
-His Supreme Court lackeys -- Scalia, O'Connor, Rehnquist, Thomas, and Kennedy -- ended the recount and handed him the Presidency by issuing a blatantly partisan decision with no sound basis in law, logic, or precedent.
That is your Person of the Year. He used every means except counting votes to steal the Presidency. He is despicable and Time Magazine is equally despicable for celebrating his crime. That is why I cancelled my subscription.
In addition, I have written to all companies who advertised in that issue and told them that I will boycott their products as long as they continue to advertise in Time.
