CNN just reported that over 80% of the population in afghanistan is illiterate (read: they can't read). they interviewed a couple of men in the country who were going to vote. the guy who spoke said he didn't understand the whole process, but figured he'd try and be a part of it. he's going to rely on his god to direct his hand to the best candidate. 80% will be guessing -- democracy in action. <br><br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato
I read an article which stated that the Afghan election officials have decided to curb election fraud by marking with indelible ink the hands of those that have voted. The ink marking is said to last one week. The Taliban warlords have spread the word that anyone found bearing the ink marks on their hand can expect to lose it. <br><br>
