Election Reform Forum Rant
Edited on Mon Sep-15-08 05:55 PM by BeFree
Some here are willing to allow their votes to be counted by machines. Some are totally disgusted with machines counting any votes.

I am disgusted.

Those who are not disgusted -- who like the machines and feel they have a place in our elections, have a duty. They have a duty to show us just one machine that can - without reasonable doubt - count votes as safely as human counted ballots.

They have this duty or they might as well go fly a kite.

Furthermore it is beyond disgusting that so many here still defend the machines that we all know are vote stealing apparatus of the republicans. That there are also way too many that support them, even in the slightest.

Too many of our fellow citizens who got emotional and responded with great passion about the facts of the republicans stealing elections were ejected from our forum.

Far too many acting on their well-founded and certain factual basis for their emotions have been asked to leave.

For what? For being pissed that Bushco stole the election and responding a little to forcefully to those who claimed they were wrong, even nuts?

My Gawd, true patriots have been shunted aside and told to go elsewhere! Told showing their patriotism is not welcome here!

Anyway, we've survived. And we will overcome.

1. Appreciate your fortitude and dedication, BeFree!
2 + 2 will always equal 4

Vote counting by private corporations in total secrecy without verification will always equal TYRANNY.
