'It's Still the Physical Economy, Stupid'

Nov. 3, 2004 (EIRNS)—The Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee issued the following statement today:

On Tuesday, Nov. 9, 2004, exactly one week after the U.S. Presidential elections, Lyndon LaRouche, former candidate for the Democratic Party Presidential nomination, will address the nation and the world via an Internet webcast from the LaRouche PAC website,, to be delivered before a live audience in the nation's capital. The event will be sponsored by the LaRouche Political Action Committee, which was launched in Boston at the close of the 2004 Democratic Convention, and which campaigned aggressively for the Kerry-Edwards ticket in battleground states across the nation.

LaRouche will discuss the aftermath of the apparent George Bush victory on Nov. 2, an outcome that is certain to greatly accelerate the general breakdown of the world economic and financial system. "The U.S. and the world are facing the greatest financial crash in history," LaRouche declared, in previewing his Nov. 9 presentation. "By the inauguration date, the economic, financial, and security crises will be hitting this country and the world, full force, and the Bush Administration is thoroughly unprepared to deal with any of it. Had John Kerry been elected President, there would have been a possibility of stopping this onrushing series of crises. Those who voted for Bush and Cheney will now bear the consequences of what they did."

LaRouche emphasized, "It's still the physical economy, stupid, and with Bush and Cheney returning to the White House, there will be nothing to temper the onrush of the crisis, forthcoming from the rest of the world."

LaRouche concluded, "Take it from a higher level. If the Nov. 2 vote proves to be legitimate, that is, that there was no massive fraud or errors, then it demonstrates that a larger portion of the American people are crazier than I previously imagined. This is particularly clear among those who cling, still, to the delusion that Bush has been successful in dealing with the economy."

The Nov. 9 webcast, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, will address all of these issues.
