Just how the last one was stolen READ THE ARTICLE
http://www.truthout.org/110308R

I am sure that this has been posted, but deserves a review and a forward to everybody you know.
Don't you find it strange how these "battleground" state polls have closed so perfectly? And why was Mccain traveling all over hell, to these seemingly unrelated states in the last minute?Perhaps to provide cover later by claiming what great last-minute help it was to push those areas??
Palast and others warned us just after the last election cycle that today's election was already stolen.
I am not sure that you can even argue that it is possible for a candidate to win by 8% in the pop. vote, and lose the electoral. This is the only factor in their way. Do they pull the trigger and make a few switches, or not risk detection in light of the overwhelming popular response?
It is up to us to us to be witness to these crimes.

2. WE MUST INSIST that county results be CALLED IN, not emailed.
Repukes can use IT to intercept and modify results as they are transmitted between county sites and the state central site. How can we get a movement to insist that counties CALL in their results, or at least verify the results after they've been transmitted?

4. REALITY: Given polls, 5% better turnot in 5 staes and McCain wins.
That is what to worry about today, the reality of turnout!!
