Folks they are gonig to steal this one again
We all know Bush is buddies with the diebold guy. That is in my opinion how Bush won Ohio. This is also the reason Rove and his lap dog are predicting they will hold the house and senate. Because they already know the fix is in. And now this from Jake Tapper;


By JAKE TAPPER, REBECCA ABRAHAMS and EDUARDO SUNOL

Oct. 22, 2006 Cheryl Kagan, a former Maryland Democratic legislator, was shocked when she opened her mail Wednesday morning.

Inside, she discovered three computer discs. With them was an anonymous letter saying the discs contained the secret source code for vote-counting that could be used to alter the votes cast through Maryland's new electronic voting machines.

"My understanding is that with these disks a malicious person could skew the outcome of an election," Kagan said.

Diebold, the company that makes the voting machines, told ABC News, "These discs do not alter the security of the Diebold touch-screen system in any way," because election workers can set their own passwords.

But ABC News has obtained an independent report commissioned by the state of Maryland and conducted by Science Applications International Corporation revealing that the original Diebold factory passwords are still being used on many voting machines.

1. The only vote you can be sure won't count is the one you don't cast.

2. That's a nice sounding platitude, but the original post shows it's not true
That's the problem

3. They MIGHT be able to steal the Senate...
but it's not close enough in the House races. I'm cautiously optimistic that chimpface will wake up to a nightmare on November 8th.

5. The only thing different is that this year there seems to be more awareness
It's out there more in the public mind, the fact that the machines can be hacked. However, I don't know if that will be enough to change any results if they steal it again.

We need to instill a fear in them that their races are going to be hacked. Actually, there is a good possibility of that happening, as two can play that game...The only answer is a paper trail.

This IS a serious issue, and should not be ridiculed by you or anyone else.

7. At some point, America may finally wake up.
Maybe it would be on Nov. 8 if a GOP landslide is declared after the 7th.

9. at the first sign of fraud
I suspect that the streets will look a lot like 1968 Chicago... pretty much everywhere.

10. Bull! they are finally doing reports on this ..
why now? I'll tell you why to decrease the vote because they know that even independents and repubs will be voting against the repubs.

12. The USA Government is guilty of TREASON!
I think this is rather suspicous.
Giving the enemy proof of your parties curroption?

The democrats are being set up.
The republicans KNOW they are going to win,
Yet they have declared security and the economy as being the big factors that will ENSURE them victory.


So what happens when the dems win, the republicans SCREAM fraud and election tampering.
Hey look, they have the source code, the proof THER GUILTY
" HAND THE CONGRESS BACK TO THE REPUBLICANS THEYD SCREAM "

All the new laws, allthe money, all the curroption from the bush admin..

They arent going to let their hardwork be undone simply by allowing the people to chose who is in congress.

Where do you go, when the US Government is guilty of treason?

13. Hope they try, and I hope this time we catch them at it.
Then come all the lovely prosecutions and convictions and imprisonments. Hope they're televised.
MASSIVE TURNOUT will help us catch them. :bounce:

18. I'm as "uneasy" about the day after the election and the results we will see,
till it ain't even funny. I pray that my 6th sense is totally wrong.

20. they definitely will lie, cheat, steal, murder and commit treason
trying to win

but if we don't vote, they won't have to break the law.

we have to catch them at it in a legally provable way before anything will change

21. since 2000 I haven't rested easy
And there still is no way to prove anything has gone awry with EVMs. I just don't know if we can stand another two years of these idiots unchecked. Now some people are po'd at Pelosi about her statement on impeachment, and I'm worried they may stay home. Oy vey.
