Has anyone analyzed the loss of federal senate &/or rep seats
and the irregularites in the states that went red?

In the counties where the numbers are so off from the exit polls, did democratic candidates for congressional seats also loss?

Were they able to steal the presidency and pack congress?

3. Good to hear you are working on this in Florida
I think they played their ballot games in every state, so that the weed that would be king wouldn't lose any of his red states and so that they could pack congress (and get repuke govs). An analysis of all elections in the most obvious counties will probably reflect the theft was beneficial to many repuke candidates.

4. I think people should start looking in the counties Kerry won more
closely because there have been huge increases in republican votes in these counties that are normally democratic.

6. I think all repuke wins need to be looked into.
For them to pull of the theft, the shrub couldn't lose or have a near loss in any state he won in 2000. Did they steal votes for him and for a repuke congressional candidate or governor?

7. Yes, Alachua County especially
something funny happened and I'll bet it wasn't at the local level. I know our Supervisor of Elections. She is definitely honest and competent. However, she is older and not well versed in the inner workings of computers. I know she believes that these systems are reliable because that is what everyone has been telling her from the State level.

Alachua Co uses Diebold Optical Scanners. At least we have a paper ballot and I doubt if they can be tampered with here. Unless we have a break in or something.

A recount of all of Florida is of the utmost importance. That is the only way we will ever know the truth.

All I know, is that I live here. The local REP party was almost in shambles. Lot's of infighting and they got caught with their pants down, when they organized that Swift Boat Vet rally. The Bush campaign never even sent paid staffers here. Their GOTV effort was nothing compared to what the DEMS were doing.

We even had a DEM who was running for Supervisor of Elections going around town with a computerized cart. He registered a lot of people. Michael Moore came on the last day of Voter Registertion. He packed the O'Dome with Kerry supporters and almost every single one was already registered to vote.

Alachua County should have seen a very heavy Kerry turnout. He had tons more movitated supporters than Gore could even dream of in 2000.

8. In every state there are bound to be some degree of
manipulation of the voter counts. The weed did not win the popular vote by the margin they want us to believe, if a all!
