17. May I butt in? I don't think the propensity to steal an election
is confined to any political party.

The computerized casting and tabulating of votes just offers an unprecidented opportunity to steal elections easily and without detection.

It's kind of like bank robbery. One can enter a bank with a gun, but it's a lot easier, less risky and much more lucrative to systematically loot the banks, simular to what happened in the Savings and Loan rip off during the 80's.

Why didn't The Democrats (as a whole) raise holy hell about the systematic S&L looting that took place in the 80's?

They just kind of spent the 400 billion in taxes it cost to clean it up, a few people went down, and most of the problems were just kind of swept under the rug. I think there is a parallel to the Democratic response to the stolen elections of 2000-2005 and the looting of the S&ls.

The BCCI scandle is simular too in the lack of a strong focused response.
