“Diebthroat.” -- Rebecca Abrahams
PART ONE

Q: Why did Diebold get into the voting machine business?

A: Being in this business, having the power of controlling elections, not necessarily the outcomes, just controlling elections is priceless.

Q: Is that what Diebold is doing?

A: Electronic voting leaves a lot of doors open for manipulation of the vote. Not that I can prove that was taking place. But there was a conservative agenda at work in the management and the acquisition. Things changed when Diebold took over (discusses company’s history).

Q: What about back-door software? Is it true these machines can be accessed without a password?

A: You can actually enter the Global Elections Management System, GEMS, which is the tabulation software through the back door. In other words, you can access the data base. This whole thing sits on top of Microsoft Access, so you can go in the back door, without going in the front door and needing a password and make alternations to the data base and Homeland Security recognized this threat and it’s documented on the Internet now.

1. You don't even have to know this--that Diebold and ES&S are far rightwing
Corpo fuckwads, and have "back doors" into the software. All you have to know is what's looking at you at the FRONT door: 'TRADE SECRET,' PROPRIETARY programming code, in voting systems all over the country--code that not even our secretaries of state are permitted to review--owned and controlled by Bushwhack corporations, with virtually no audit/recount controls.

Such a system is DESIGNED FOR fraud. It is fraudulent on its face.

And the other thing that's important to know is that our Democratic Party leadership went along with it, enthusiastically, and still support it.

So-o-o-o-o, we get an ESCALATED Iraq War, from a so-called Democratic Congress, and now, a looting of the American people unto the 7th generation, with a giveaway of $700 BILLION and a bottomless cup of "Fool's Gold" credit to the richest people on the face of the earth, at our expense.

It's the "final looting." That's what 100% non-transparent vote counting was FOR.
