199. please read my post #198
--since you seem to have doubts that fraud of various kinds is widespread in American voting. The problem is, we don't have any strong mechanisms for dealing with it. And that fact is made much worse by the paperless touchscreen voting machines under control of Republican companies, which after being promoted by HAVA--accounted for 30% of the results in 2004. Have you really looked at what happened in Ohio alone--go to the Conyers website for that.

It's not my purpose to debate you here. You illustrate perfectly the
problem we have in this country of so many people (Dem and Rep) who refuse to believe in the possibility of widespread fraud. The fact is that many pointers indicate that the current president may not have been the winner--several good books are out there now on this, and of course the vast archives of the DU Election Forum.

At least the selection of Bushco gives us all an opportunity to really LOOK at the election system, rather than just "trusting" it. All indicators are that it does not deserve such blind trust. I have worked with elections at the local level. This is a non-partisan problem which even conservative election workers are willing to acknowledge.
