OMG, ARE YOU SERIOUS!?! You don't read contradicting news stories do you? Either that, you just read headlines. Here, buddy, check out this blog. He does a very good job at critizing the NAIVITY, and generally speaking, STUPIDITY of the media.

Now, back to the topic, I watched Episodes I, and III, again the other day, and I realized, that the movies are actually anti-Socialist (or Democrat, take your pick). The guy in power (Palpy) seems a like good guy, tries to bring peace, using a hippy, "I've seen war, and I don't like it," attitude (think John Kerry). While he secretly takes control of the Republic, by eliminating the Senate's power (think of eridicating States' rights, and creating a strong, federal government). And finally, in a deleted scene from ANH (it's on the Radio drama and here) he pushes for a nationalized (socialist) government.

However, in the end, the Rebellion (or as the Democrats like to call us, The Conspiracy) wins.
