I have feeling that if Albert Einstein were alive & in charge of counting the votes in Wisconsin
the results would be skewed in the GOP's favor. They'd like nothing more than to dampen Wisconsinites' spirits. I refuse to believe that Wisconsinites got out in (probably) record numbers today to vote the GOP's way.

3. That the GOP is sleazy enough to *find* a way to cheat the results, no matter
who's doing the counting.

7. Optical Scanners. Paper ballot fed into a machine that calculates the votes.
They're suppose to be more reliable/more tamper-proof, but I don't trust them.

8. ... but still votes counted by computer -- and no reliable way to verify -- sounds like ...
Most people think that the computers only came in recently -- whereas they

have been coming in since the late 1960's --

I'd question every election back to Nixon/Humphrey --

Don't know if there ever was a "Southern Strategy" or just GOP voting computers?

In the late 1960's, two Florida journalists started to question the very odd

results -- and unverifiable results -- the computers were delivering and began an

investigation. They contracted for a book -- "Votescam -- The Stealing of America" --

which was removed from bookstore shelves almost immediately.

You can read it on line -- and it's available here and there for $3 --

http://www.constitution.org/vote/votescam__.htm


About the same time -- mid-1960's -- MSM were gifted with the LARGE computers which gave

them new powers to PREDICT and CALL elections -- and to PREDICT and CALL winners and losers.

ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTES - winners and losers. We simply saw that being REVERSED in 2000.

Before the LARGE computers, MSM could only report actual vote tallies.

If you knew about this, why didn't you tell us?

If you didn't know - pass it along!
