The Guardian newspaper in England recently sponsored a campaign of letters sent to swing states to encourage people to vote for John Kerry. This link is a list of responses to the paper from various American citizens. It is quite amusing.
As a side note, in the War of 1812 when the U.S. tried to invade Canada while the Brits were busy in Europe, and failed, is that considered a victory in the United States? And if so will the Vietnam War and the Iraq (war?) be considered “Victories” in your history books 200 years from now?
