BUSHS RIGGED FLORIDA VOTING
Nov. 8, 2:20 am
Corporate Media declared Bush had the lead in Florida
with 50,000 votes over Gore.
Bush was declared the winner of the Presidential Elections.
Then Gore calls Bush and concedes the election to Bush.
Nov. 8, 3:30 am
Bush's lead in Florida drops to 500 votes over Gore.
Nov. 8, 3:45 am
Bush's lead in Florida drops to 224 votes over Gore.
Nov. 8, 4:48 p.m.
The Corporate Media declares Bush's lead in Florida
is 1,780 to 500 votes over Gore.
Nationally Gore leads Bush by about 260,000 votes.
Gore has won the popular vote.
Florida has about 6 million voters this year.
Florida voting population is mostly Democrat, not Republican.
Republicans dominate political offices in Florida
by Jerry Mandering, and other techniques.
Governor Jeb Bush, George W. Bush's brother,
has made many enemies since taking office.
Many Florida voters don't like Jeb Bush,
or his brother George W. Bush.
You will soon find out why.
The new Motor Voter Law registered
some 25% to 35% of the 6 million voters in Florida,
But many of the forms were not mailed or delivered
to the office of voter registrars.
So many who thought they were registered,
were in for a shock when they found out
they were not registered to vote, and
it was too late to register to vote.
Lets say it was the difference between 35% and 25%
or 10% of the 6 million voters in Florida.
That's 600,000 Florida citizens who could not vote,
that wanted to vote.
In a predominately Democratic State.
The more people who vote,
the more the chance a Democrat will win
and a Republican will loose.
Republicans tend to be registered by Republicans,
not by the Department of Motor Vehicles.
Who knows how many more votes
Gore could have picked up from voters
who thought they were registered, but weren't.
Calling the office of registrars
is one way to verify you are registered.
Most people don't know this.
The middle class retiree community
of West Palm Beach FL
are mostly Gore voters and anti-Buchanan.
Older people are easy to confuse
and take advantage of.
These retirees went to vote for Gore on Nov. 7
and found a very confusing ballot.
It looked something like this:
BUSH [ ]
GORE [x] BUCHANAN
If you voted by punching out the spot
between GORE and BUCHANAN
then you just voted for Buchanan, not Gore!
Many of the West Palm Bach FL voters want to revote.
They feel they were taken advantage of,
and are starting a lawsuit.
The Florida Attorney General acknowledged on NBC
that ballots in the Palm Bach area were
suspiciously structured in such a way
that people who thought the were voting for Gore
ended up having their votes
being counted for Pat Buchanan!
Buchanan received about .3% 1,800,000 votes
of the 6 million FL votes state wide.
But received about .6% or 8,900 votes
of the 14,833 West Palm Beach votes,
From anti-Buchanan voters who
would be expected to vote around .1% for Buchanan.
I will assume .3% of the West Palm Beach votes
for Buchana were really for Gore.
That's 4,450 votes that were really for Buchanan,
and 4,450 more votes for Gore than were counted!
Bush is reported to have
anywhere from 1,780 votes to 500 votes over Gore.
But if you add in the additional 4,450 votes for Gore
from West Palm Beach,
then Gore has 3,950 to 2,670 votes over Bush!
Poor black voters who traditionally vote Democrat
and live in downtown Miami FL,
thought they had voted and that their vote counted.
It has been reported the ballot boxes
from downtown Miami FL were not picked up,
so those votes were not counted.
Florida has had its share of vote fraud.
Recently a Florida Mayor
was removed from office for vote fraud.
Absentee votes will take
about 10 days to be received, counted, and certified.
That is on or about Friday Nov. 17 to Monday Nov. 20.
The absentee votes currently coming in
are mostly for Gore, not Bush.
But it should be remembered that
the Republicans are currently the masters of
manipulation of absentee votes.
Recounts usually take from 1 to 8 days.
Recounts usually result in a change of votes
+ or - a few hundred.
Governor Jeb Bush of Florida
has announced he is with drawing
from serving on the State Panel
that certifies vote recounts,
To avoid any appearance of
Bush's influence in the Panels decisions.
But guess who appointed
the members of the State Panel,
and who is recounting the votes.
The recount may be done as early as Nov. 9
but will not include absentee votes.
After the recount votes are certified, about Nov. 9,
the Democrats have 10 days file a lawsuit
to contest the votes in court,
or until about Nov. 19.
Most likely this will all go to court
and last until inauguration time.
Democrats have already started
looking for a scapegoat for all of this,
And it is focused on Nader right now.
Nader had 6% in the polls
until the Democrats attacked Nader voters,
And peeled off Nader voters
with scare tactics to vote for Gore.
Only 3% of national votes
were for Nader, 3% shifted to Gore.
This means Nader voters
have to start once again from scratch in 2004.
You have to have 5% of the vote
to get matching Federal funds,
And automatically be on the ballot in the next election.
A lot of hard work by Nader supporters
has been sabotaged by Gore voters.
In Florida, Nader went from
an expected 6% of the vote
to only 1.7% of the votes cast.
If anything Gore voters should be
thanking Nader voters for a tremendous self-sacrifice.
Gore and Bush are for
"Free Trade", MAI, NAFTA, GATT:
Corporate control of Government.
What many Nader voters did
is vote for Corporate control of Government,
not Public control of Government.
