Canada is singing our song: "Election Fraud Continues in the US"


Election Fraud Continues in the US
New Data Shows Widespread Vote Manipulations in 2004


by Peter Phillips

In the fall of 2001, after an eight-month review of 175,000 Florida ballots never counted in the 2000 election, an analysis by the National Opinion Research Center confirmed that Al Gore actually won Florida and should have been President. However, coverage of this report was only a small blip in the corporate media as a much bigger story dominated the news after September 11, 2001.

New research compiled by Dr. Dennis Loo with the University of Cal Poly Pomona now shows that extensive manipulation of non-paper-trail voting machines occurred in several states during the 2004 election. The facts are as follows: In 2004 Bush far exceeded the 85% of registered Florida Republican votes that he got in 2000, receiving more than 100% of the registered Republican votes in 47 out of 67 Florida counties, 200% of registered Republicans in 15 counties, and over 300% of registered Republicans in 4 counties. Bush managed these remarkable outcomes despite the fact that his share of the crossover votes by registered Democrats in Florida did not increase over 2000, and he lost ground among registered Independents, dropping 15 points. We also know that Bush "won" Ohio by 51-48%, but statewide results were not matched by the court-supervised hand count of the 147,400 absentee and provisional ballots in which Kerry received 54.46% of the vote. In Cuyahoga County, Ohio the number of recorded votes was more than 93,000 greater than the number of registered voters.

More importantly national exit polls showed Kerry winning in 2004. However, It was only in precincts where there were no paper trails on the voting machines that the exit polls ended up being different from the final count. According to Dr. Steve Freeman, a statistician at the University of Pennsylvania, the odds are 250 million to one that the exit polls were wrong by chance. In fact, where the exit polls disagreed with the computerized outcomes the results always favored Bush - another statistical impossibility.

There is now strong statistical evidence of widespread voting machine manipulation occurring in US elections since 2000. Coverage of the fraud has been reported in independent media and various websites. The information is not secret. But it certainly seems to be a taboo subject for the US corporate media.

5. Well, he got one thing wrong:
"we will likely see the quiet passing of legislation that will correct the most blatant problems."

What Congress is he talkin' about?

9. Kicked and recommended -- this is a banner month for election theft news
Edited on Fri Aug-12-05 08:39 PM by Fly by night
Mark Crispin Miller in Harper's.

Mark Taibbi in the New York Press.

Most of the speakers at the Atlanta voting rights march.

McGovern on Imus.

Maher on King.

Now Canada chiming in.

If Karl Rove hasn't overdosed the corporate media on rohypnol, maybe they can start waking up now.

Better to be awake and beginning to heal from a massive cluster-fuck than still asleep and still "taking it" -- inert, bound and bent over a copy of the Constitution.

16. I loved the article -- but I don't agree with this:
"There is little doubt key Democrats know that votes in 2004 and earlier elections were stolen. The fact that few in Congress are complaining about fraud is an indication of the totality to which both parties accept the status quo of a money based elections system. Neither party wants to further undermine public confidence in the American "democratic" process (over 80 millions eligible voters refused to vote in 2004). Instead we will likely see the quiet passing of legislation that will correct the most blatant problems. Future elections in the US will continue as an equal opportunity for both parties to maintain a national democratic charade in which money counts more than truth."

That's not only cynical, but false logically. His first assumption is that no one's saying anything because of the "totality to which both parties accept the status quo of a money based elections system," and then he goes on to assert that, "Neither party wants to further undermine public confidence in the American "democratic" process".

Lastly, he sees that the "quiet passing of legislation that will correct the most blatant problems" and still "future elections in the US will continue as an equal opportunity for both parties to maintain a national democratic charade in which money counts more than truth".

Well, young feller, which is it? Money or confidence?

If you could tell the people that the other side cheated, and this is how they did it, and by gum, we're gonna fix it and this is how... isn't that loudly fixing the problem while sullying your opponent and winning by telling the truth?

Also, the assumption that the Dems in Congress are keeping it quiet because they also benefit monetarily is hardly a sound one. Have there been many reports of a district suddenly turning out 100% and 200% of the registered Democrats? I'm moving there!

I'm not naive enough to believe that no one profited from something on the Dem side, but I truly doubt that that is a major calculated motivation for the Dems. That may be the Canadian in him. Has he seen John Conyers?

Anyway, it's very nice to read that we're not the only ones that think something's very, very wrong here.
