93. vote rigging is a form of (electronic) assassination
40 years ago, if "the powers that be" didn't like a Presidential candidate or a populist leader, they would find their patsy (Oswald, Sirhan, JE Ray, ect.) finance a 'secret team', take out the person and keep their story straight and repeat it enough so that the naive and gullible population would accept it.

I don't think "they" can get away with political assassinations as easily as they could do it in the 1960's, although so now it's gotten more sophisticated and there are convenient 'plane accidents' (Sen. Paul Wellstone of Minn.) But thanks to the computer technology and the e-vote machines, they can just manipulate votes and no one gets hurt this way. We are living in a system that is throughly corrupt and rotten.

Although I am disappointed that Kerry didn't try to prolong the contest, it was rigged IMHO, but at least a "lone nut" didn't decide to knock off Kerry. There are groups allied to Bush who would have be willing to arrange a political murder, Bush is not above the idea of political assassinations, just look at what he did in Iraq so far. Kerry lives to fight for another day. He still remains a valuable asset to the progressive movement here.

The most important part of the electroral process now, it has to be exit-polling. Look how quickly the mainstream press was demolishing those exit-polling results which showed Kerry in the lead every time.
It's a form of statistical quality control and we need to start organizing this in the immediate future.
