Caught On Tape, The Fix Is In

Aug 21: Philadelphia, PA -- Caught On Tape, The Fix Is In is a new online video about America's flawed voting process by freelance journalist Lynn Landes, producer of EcoTalk.org. In this 13-minute video Landes strongly urges all political candidates to not concede their races until they or their supporters have verified election results through the collection of voter affidavits or signed statements in some or all precincts. She calls these efforts, "Parallel Elections".

The video begins with a now-infamous clip of Congressman Peter King (NY-R) on the White House lawn just before the 2004 presidential election. "The election is over. We won." (Reporter's voice, "How do you know that?") "It's all over, but the counting. And we'll take care of the counting," King boasts.

Also featured are some fascinating clips of an examination of the Danaher voting system by Pennsylvania state officials in November of 2004. In one clip a company representative admits that, in their computer program, every candidate's name must have a party identifier next to it. Landes notes that this feature enables the company to skew election results across-the-board in favor of one party over the other before the machines ever leave the factory floor.

Landes cautions viewers not to jump to conclusions, "Most voting machine companies have close ties to the Republican Party and most voting machine irregularities appear to favor Republicans, but I must emphasize, that is not always the case. Even in Republican and Democratic primaries, where the race is between members of the same party, voting machines are exhibiting suspicious irregularities. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party and the Green Party's measured response to the gravity of this situation makes one wonder."

The film warns viewers that election officials and voting machine companies can easily manipulate votes and not get caught. They accomplish this through the use of the secret ballot, voting machines, and absentee or early voting.

"It wasn't always this way," she notes.

2. makes one wonder...indeed...
wasn't it the Collier brothers in Florida, who wrote about their experience with stolen elections, and said they could get no help from Janet Reno, because of the enormity and regularity of the practice?

6. aw gee...thanks...
the time I spent sans internet access was really kind of nice...but as soon as we were hooked up again, I couldn't let it alone... had to sneak back in and nose around. It's been a rather harsh re-entry.. I think my tolerance level is way down, and my alarm buttons go off way too easily. Course...it could be the times... :toast:

9. I sure hope our Democratic candidates are prepared to fight
Any close races and discrepancy from exit polls should be fought with tooth and nail.
