Evidence of vote fraud
is coming in faster than anyone can keep track of. There are specific
such as counties with more votes than voters, one county that produced
negative total number of votes, obvious and heavy-handed voter
and ballots simply discarded without being counted.
The most obvious sign that something went badly wrong were the exit
election day itself. While accurate predictors of the majority of
congressional and gubernatorial races, the exit polling on election day
showed John Kerry as the clear winner, and the word "landslide" was
to be used by news readers who grimaced and shifted in their seats as
read the numbers. But then a strange thing happened! Vote actuals
started to swing back to Bush, even in states where the exit polls
Kerry should win. As the night progressed, an obvious and disturbing
appeared. In states where paper ballots were used and audit trails
for the vote, the actual vote results matched the exit polls closely.
states where the new electronic voting machines were being used, there
consistent bias towards President Bush.
There are some facts about the American system of elections many people
not realize. For one thing, there is no governmental or citizen body
computes the vote totals. For decades, the counting of the votes in
Presidential elections has been handled by a private company owned by
networks. While it may change its name from time to time to stay out of
public eye, it is in fact the same company, owned by the major TV
That's right; in the United States, the Presidential elections are
and decided by the TV network news departments. And nobody checks up on
them. Nobody is allowed to. This brings us to an interesting case that
happened in Florida where Fox News fired two reporters for refusing to
re-write a story to protect the interests of advertisers. The reporters
and lost when the courts ruled that TV network news departments are NOT
under any legal requirement to tell the truth about anything, and have
legal right to fire any reporter that refuses to lie when told to! Now,
and think about that a moment. The counting of the votes in the recent
Presidential election is solely in the hands of a private company under
legal requirement to tell you the truth about the results.
Now then, with regard to the electronic voting machines. The majority
voting systems are manufactured by just two companies, ES&S and
CEO of Diebold, Wally O'Dell, stated publicly his intention to deliver
Ohio's electoral votes to Bush! The owners of both ES&S and Diebold are
brothers, and the software used in both machines, which account for 80%
the votes cast in the last election, share common roots.
It has been known for months that the part of the Diebold voting system
collects and totals the votes in the precincts is not only not secure,
in fact extremely easy to tamper with. Indeed, while the voting
themselves are custom-built, the vote accumulator runs on an ordinary
computer, many of which are sold with built-in wireless LAN capability.
would allow a vote-stealer equipped with another computer with a
wireless LAN to alter votes without even having to be in the same room

security experts and honest elections advocates, electronic voting
were put into use in the battleground states, and worse, were designed

DESIGNED that way! States that agreed to add paper trails under

paper trails will be added for the NEXT election (in theory).
So, here we are, with voting machines that are easy to tamper with,
leave no paper trail, sending their "results" directly to the TV
news, who are under no legal obligation to tell us the truth about
It should be remembered that the TV news shows that assure us President
won last Tuesday's election are the very same ones who assured us that
Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction aimed at us.
Now, the Bush/Neocon supporters are already screaming, "You can't prove

authority to take your money from you and spend it as they see fit, to
your children from you to send off to wars,indeed to send YOU off to
be killed or crippled. The burden of proof is on those people claiming
the legal government to prove that they in fact won the election. And
cannot do that. The very absence of a paper trail designed into the
machines to prevent a recount prevents verification of the election.
The Declaration of Independence says that governments derive their just
powers from the consent of the governed. Bush and his cohorts, backed
the TV news media, claim they have the consent of 51% of the people to
the government. I doubt that. While the same TV news media is now
explain why the exit polls, usually the surest indicator of vote fraud
past elections, just "had to be wrong" this time, the fact that the
skewing of votes towards Bush took place inside the electronic voting
machines that purposely leave no audit trail delegitimizes the entire
election. And, if the election lacks legitimacy, then so too do those
who claim authority over us based on that election.
If the elections in this nation are not honest and fair, then We The
have lost all control over the government. The government can do what
wants to with our lives and our wealth, using the illusion of elections
trick us into thinking we are obligated to obey their commands and pay
bills. But in truth, we are not. If the government that claims
over us cannot prove they are legally entitled to that authority, why
we listen to them? If the government cannot prove that the election by
they claim authority is honest and fair, why should we surrender our
or our children's lives to them?
If the elections are not honest and fair, then we are living under the
same conditions that our ancestors did in 1776. We are under the rule

Our ancestors decided they would not live under a tyrant who took their
money without regard for their interests.
What will modern Americans do now?
