Don't let the fraudulent election in the USA story be buried. Voting machine companies backed by lobbyists from the defense industry, developed these machines- with no paper trail, or means to validate the real selections of the voters.
The owners and executives of several of the companies that manufacture these machines have close ties to the Bush administration, Republican Party, far right extremist religious re-constructionist and the CNP.
I have a value that says you should not have thousands of people dying and killing people in Iraq to impose a democracy and “fair” vote and then destroy democracy in the US. How does this correlate with Bush's Christian values? Actually, I think I know already. Iit fits just fine with the fanatical and dangerous beliefs of the re-constructionist, as those that founded the CNP, whom also had a hand in the attempted destruction of our democracy.
Sen. John McCain and many others proclaimed how shocked they were by the inaccuracies of the EXIT polls. Even a right wing pundit-Dick Morris with some genuine knowledge of the historical validity of these polls made some amazing comments in an article-(see below) calling for an investigation of the media (they consider it too liberal which is a cruel joke).
An investigation of the machines should be conducted and perhaps if we demand it enough it will. But that is highly doubtful. I had written and complained before the election but nothing happened. We were too reassured by meaningful activists with video cameras, but they were no help in this case.
Who would have thought we Americans might need vote monitors from the UN, but the current anti-UN administration would not have allowed it. Our media is afraid to speak out, yet they have much to lose. The FCC will be dismantled and right wing control enforced by and extreme supreme court.
We must not concede democracy. I am so sad for my country, and the world. I do not believe the majority of Americans voted to be in hateful isolation from the concerns of the world.
