News on the 2000 United States election

Democracy is an egalitarian form of government of a nation, in which all its citizens determine the public policies and laws of their state via equal rights and entitlement to an opinion. In most cases of democracy, the equal voices of citizens are gathered via votes for political parties.

Democracy was a favored form of government for the Assassin Order.[1] However, the Templar Order heavily opposed democracy, often manipulating and sabotaging the voting system of the United States to plant their own puppets in the position of President.[1] One such notable occasion was during the 2000 election, where the Templars succeeded in installing George W. Bush as their puppet in the White House.[2]
