This particular news was on the Italian radio this morning. The
reaction from my immediate environment is that of sadness, words of
'looks like a dictatorship' and so on. The people around me also asked
questions about what is the true lifetime of a democracy, because it
looks like an incredibly fragile thing now, with the US has having had
demonstrated the longest democratic life.

Since I am still hoping to vote in the US elections from here, I have
a political question for you US citizens, who have more information
regarding Kerry. Does Kerry's policies look like he will continue the
Bush 'War on Terrorism fear-amplification machine'? (I think you know
what I mean).
