11. Please don't Jump To Premature Conclusions
I didn't say you were in league with Brad. But you guys are polar opposites of a created enigma. The things about Kimberlin and Curtis help your side of the argument, imho.

As for freedom of speech on the net, I think you are being naive. One may be able to post their ideas and research, but there are other ways such things get buried. Like with what I said about the tv news versus the blogosphere.

As regards to your extreme focus on exit polls, I think people would take you more seriously if you applied the same energy to other issues, such as with the Republican manipulation of the voter rolls.

Do you admit that it would be easy to flip the votes on those electronic machines? Do you admit that if that is done, that there would be no way to prevent that from happening? And if yes, then don't you think paper ballots are the way to go? How come we can spend all this money blowing out ozone holes with space shuttles, how come we have all this money to char Iraqi babies, yet we don't have the wherewithal to conduct authentic elections?

And I think the inevitable will happen, those machines will be outlawed. But then the problem becomes that the audits of computer machines will be rigged also.

Atwater and Rove were/are criminals. Our leadership is full of war criminals. And you want us to believe that these same people aren't manipulating election results?
