A petition drive to demand Senator John Kerry, Ralph Nader, the Green Party and the independents file a lawsuit declaring that unless these electronic voting machines are removed and replaced with paper ballots there will be no free and fair elections in America in 2004.

Fascist Is As Fascist Does!

A petition drive to demand Senator John Kerry, Ralph Nader, the Green Party and the independents file a lawsuit declaring that unless these electronic voting machines are removed and replaced with paper ballots there will be no free and fair elections in America in 2004.

The Election Is Already Stolen.

A Petition Drive.

By Lloyd Hart

So if the election is already stolen, why bother right? Wrong! There has never been a moment in America's history (a history of stolen elections) when the opportunity arose so fortuitously to actually instill democracy into what has essentially been the buying and selling of power in America that began with the buying and selling of the so-called American Revolution.

>From propertied white men to Jim-Crow through Suffrage to the Dixiecrats to the blacklists to the assassinations to the covert and not so covert white supremacy of the U.S. Senate. To Democratic poll workers in Roxbury Massachusetts telling black voters in election 2000 that they only had 10 minutes to vote so that they would only vote the top of the ticket leaving the local white supremacy intact. To the ethnic and political cleansing of the voter lists in Florida along with false military absentee ballots nation wide to the creeping but most successful form of election theft in America's history the decades in development computerized voting machine that has been proven wide open for the instant changing of tabulations of the of vote by talented and bribed election software workers through hands-on interruptions or wireless laptops with the necessary communications devices and key codes installed or even possibly by satellite transmission. If you think Jeb Crow Bush won election 2002 by 13 percentage points or for that matter won Florida (where 62 percent of precincts have these electronic voting machines) after what happened in election 2000 just put your head back down go back to work and stop worrying about your democracy or your children's future. Happy happy America!


Just for the sake of argument suspend everything you've been taught about democracy in America since you were a little child and imagine that a group of men with huge sums money developed computerized voting machines to better steal elections with and then had the tenacity to have the taxpayer pay for them with the Help America Vote Act signed into law by George W. Crow Bush ( http://www.commondreams.org/views04/0225-05.htm ) placing them in voting precincts across America enough to affect the votes of 50 million Americans.

So let's say this group of men have control of the election regardless of how many more votes are put into the system through voter registration and voter drives that bring millions more voters' into the game as Congressman Wexler has discovered:


http://www.wexler.house.gov/pressreleases/060804.htm .

Let's just say the election is already stolen and that no election no matter where these electronic voting machines are used these elections that are being stolen are rigged not to come close enough to automatically trigger mandated recounts (renderings any paper trail printout mute) and that the theft across-the-board is rigged to make the election look as though it turned on the percentage captured by so-called spoiler seemingly making the election look as though the challenger could not bring together his coalition to win the election.

An outcome that fits perfectly within the plausible deniability program that rattles around the lead poisoned brain of the nation, Washington D.C. which will then be regurgitated by the brain's PR rep the corporate media. This outcome would explain why Republicans are aiding the spoiler (OK I will use his name) Ralph Nader to get on the ballot.

If I am right and this is the game that's a foot for this fall's election here in America then America needs more than outside international election observers. Democrats, Nader's Raders, Greens along with all the independent political parties in the U.S. must either join and change congressman Wexler's federal lawsuit to have these electronic voting machines removed from this year's election or even better have John Kerry, Ralph Nader and the Greens etc. file a lawsuit declaring that unless these electronic election machines are removed and replaced with paper ballots there will be no free and fair elections in America in 2004.

Not that there ever was I know but like I said we have never had a better opportunity to instill democracy in America by proving that the election systems in America are so completely broken that they must be completely swept aside and replaced by simple paper ballots which would separate local election days from federal election days as well as making ballot access to independent parties much easier making it easier for Americans to actually be responsible for the nation in which we live.

I recognize that the Democrats will be the immediate beneficiary of the removal of the machines but the removal of the machines will spawn a movement for greater reforms such as easier ballot access for independent parties which is the single most important reform that can occur in America's Faux democracy.

And there is of course the other scenario that presidential candidate Senator John Kerry has already made his deal with the conservative elites to leave them in control of the oil in Iraq in exchange for the election and that Senator John Kerry will not lower the Pentagon's budget and that he will only go for repealing one-third of rich people's tax cut off, he signs the Patriot Act 2 in its present form etc. etc.. And as for health care? He will faux a try but just won't be able to get it through Congress. This might explain why Kerry is running such a right wing campaign.

This is why I propose a petition to demand Senator John Kerry, Ralph Nader, the Green Party and the independents file a lawsuit declaring that unless these electronic election machines are removed and replaced with paper ballots there will be no free and fair elections in America in 2004.

Here I'll start it:
