GAO Report CONFIRMS Stolen 2004 Presidential Election (tags)
The latest critical confirmation of key indicators that the election of 2004 was stolen comes in an extremely powerful, penetrating report from the Government Accountability Office that has gotten virtually no mainstream media coverage. The GAO findings are particularly damning when set in the context of an election run in Ohio by a Secretary of State simultaneously working as co-chair of the Bush-Cheney campaign. Far from what election theft skeptics have long asserted, the GAO findings confirm that the electronic network on which 800,000 Ohio votes were cast was vulnerable enough to allow a a tiny handful of operatives -- or less -- to turn the whole vote count using personal computers operating on relatively simple software.

WHY is Exposure, Investigation Critical? Prosecute electoral fraud = Quell Fascism. (tags)
Have republicans in both houses secured seats and hence majority status on the backs of voting machines instead of the backing of the People. Is their good fortune due more to faulty, partisan electronic malfeasence ? INSTEAD of selection made by the force of good ideas, positive path platforms and real, honest acceptance by committed, concerned constituents seeking genuine change. Alarm bells are rringing among the populace, with a recent poll saying 72% believe we are heading in the wrong direction! I believe the citizenry is activated, aware and aghast- WHY is this resonance not reflected in the representation, RutRoh!
VOTERGATE! Suppression in Ohio, and the best evidence yet in Florida (tags)

URGENT: ACT NOW (!) TO UNHIJACK THE ELECTION (tags)
The 2004 Presidential election is NOT over! There's evidence the election may have been "hijacked" by fraud and that Bush has NOT won. A nationwide grassroots movement is underway to uncover the fraud, get the votes counted (or recounted) and file lawsuits, and YOUR HELP IS NEEDED NOW. Please spread the word, pitch in some volunteer time, help recruit volunteers with legal and/or computer expertise, and consider donating money. The Presidency won't be decided until the Electoral College meets on December 12; it's not too late to Redefeat Bush Again.

2004 COLLECTED VOTE FRAUD STORIES (tags)
Here we go again. Some of you will be sick of this topic and to those of you who are I ask that you get over the desire to be infotained and deal with the unpleasant reality: that the American voting system is totally bogus. What is contained in this post is of interest to anyone that believes that justice cannot be served without a full disclosure of the level of corruption in almost every corner of our political, governmental, and journalistic behemoth. Voting machines made by right wingers is not a 'fair and balanced' approach. It's a relative no-brainer but many will want to continue inhabiting a fantasy, one in which everything is alright and one hundred thousand dead Iraqis in the past two years just don't matter or, because we don't have to stare at them first hand, simply aren't real.
States With Electronic Voting Machines Gave Bush Mysterious 5% Advantage (tags)
Is Bush trying to pull a fast one? It's not fooling bloggers over at DemocraticUnderground.com, who have put together some fascinating numbers showing that a mysterious "5% advantage" goes to Bush only in those states using electronic voting machines. Or, put another way, all the exit polls showed Kerry winning, and the exit polls asked people who they actually voted for. But strangely, the "official" count appears to have been boosted in favor of Bush.

Urgent Alert: California, Decertify Paperless Voting Machines (tags)
Urgent Alert: California, Decertify Paperless Voting Machines California, Decertify Paperless Voting Machines Contributed by Electronic Frontier Foundation On April 21 & 22, the California Secretary of State's Voting Systems and Procedures Panel will decide whether to decertify paperless electronic voting systems before the November election. The call for decertification arose in California following the disenfranchisement of thousands of California voters during the March 2, 2004, election due to technical problems with electronic voting systems. In Alameda County, problems with Diebold smart card encoders affected one-fourth of the County's polling places; in San Diego County, encoder problems affected nearly 40 percent of the County's polling places. In Orange County, thousands of voters were given the wrong electronic ballots; many were unable to cast votes in contests for which they were eligible, while others were allowed to vote in districts in which they did not reside.

How To Boycott Electronic Voting Machines (tags)
In light of the controversy surrounding the Electronic Voting Machines (http://www.blackboxvoting.com/ ) I am proposing that everyone submit their vote in the form of an absentee ballot. One of the problems with the electronic voting machines is that many of them (if any? and who knows which ones do or don't) do not create a physical log of the voting records. Also there have been reports of abnormalities in vote tallying. Without this physical log it makes it extremely difficult, if not impossible to verify the voting records. If they are not going to allow a trail to be created, I suggest that we create on for them.

Thom Hartmann: 'Want to win an election? Just control the voting machines' (tags)
You'd think in an open democracy that the government - answerable to all its citizens rather than a handful of corporate officers and stockholders - would program, repair, and control the voting machines. You'd think the computers that handle our cherished ballots would be open and their software and programming available for public scrutiny. You'd think there would be a paper trail of the vote, which could be followed and audited if a there was evidence of voting fraud or if exit polls disagreed with computerized vote counts. You'd be wrong.
