4. Come on guys - Chins Up! They are trying to make you apathetic
with their talk of diebold and stirring that pot.

State by State the governments are getting transparency laws into place. Diebold was used to suppress votes by long line ups. The Exit Polls were dicked with in more places than diebold counties. And in more elections that Bush has run in - in just the last two.

They use this as a hammer to bash you over the head again and again. Don't take the bait.

Much easier to play with the exit polls. Much much easier. And it leaves no trace. Plus - any forward looking manipulator would know it would make the Diebold (new technology) scarier. And build distrust between the left & the right in the Democratic Party.

Because that has been the neocon plan all along. They join up with conservatives - give them kool-aid. Then diminish the Liberal name. Then they smash the Democratic Party in two using various kinds of fear.

Don't get apathetic. Don't let them win.

They only do the voter suppression games that will not get them prosecuted.
