    The Bush administration is reported to be investigating the possibility of postponing the presidential election in the event of a terror attack.

    US counter-terrorism officials are examining what steps would be needed to permit a delay, Newsweek reports.

    Homeland Security chief Tom Ridge last week warned al-Qaeda was planning to attack the US to disrupt the poll but conceded he had no precise information.

    A senior Democrat in Congress has said talk of postponement is "excessive".

    i havent heard to much of this talk yet. The idea of being able to cancel/postpone elections seems like more patriot act BS, maybe okay immediatlely but really scary in the long run.

    [QUOTE]Abraham Lincoln was urged by some aides to suspend the election of 1864 - during the US Civil War - but despite the expectation that he would lose, he refused.
    "The election is a necessity," Lincoln said. "We cannot have a free government without elections; and if the rebellion could force us to forgo, or postpone, a national election, it might fairly claim to have already conquered us."[/QUOTE]

    Am I the only one that has the feeling like we're being told to bend over and put a blindfold on?

    I think we're being set up here...

    Total poppycock. Once again, the Bush administration trying to bend the rules in it's favor. Whoever heard of an election being delayed in this country?

    this is just foreshadowing for when Bush makes a fake 'al quaida' attack in order to extend his run as president...because he knows he can't legitimately win. he'll then restructure the election process so that he remains dictator...er I mean president. If we have elections...then al quaida wins....right?

    register to vote and excercise that right people.
