(Or whatever you call a however on a however)

It's just as easy to alter the vote count in an electronic machine by many votes as it is to alter it by a few votes. The question is whether or not they can GET AWAY WITH stealing a blowout.

If they were going to steal a blowout, one of the things that would help is if they convinced the country to expect a close election, so that neither a win by the D or the R candidate would be seen by most as unexpected. Heard of polls that are close anywhere lately?

Another thing they'd do is steal a lot of votes by preventing people in targeted populations from CASTING those votes. Heard of that happening anywhere?

Another thing they'd do is prepare to cry "foul" if they didn't steal as many votes as it turned out they needed to steal. Have ya checked out this site?

And never forget: when the corporate media is in your pocket, deceiving the public is easily within reach.

We must act. We must prepare. If you're reading this and you're not busy ... click here.
