Rigging Elections in the USA
16 Aug 2006
Modified: 11:51:57 PM
The United States has seen its last two presidential elections decided by voting fraud, each time placing the Bush-Republican Far Right in the White House to perpetrate 9/11, the unPatriot Act, Afghanistan & Iraq wars, etc. 2008 is certain to be rigged also -- UNLESS we educate the uninformed, misguided General Public about the situation so they can enforce a fair election.

I.  Rigged Elections</span> <br>
<br>
[The USA leads the world again !!]<br>
<br>
If something is not done about voting fraud, accomplished primarily via
<span style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(127, 0, 63);">rigged
technology</span> in the <span
style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(128, 0, 255);">USA</span>,
then one might predict that the Democratic candidate in 2008, 
Senator
Hillary Clinton, will receive 75% of the popular vote, and the
Republican candidate will <span
style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(128, 0, 255);">ONCE
AGAIN</span> (third time in a row) eke out a narrow victory. <br>
<br>
Note:<span style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(127, 0, 63);"> 
The General Accounting Office</span> (GAO) of the U.S. Government
has recently published a report indicting <span
style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(128, 0, 255);">the Bush
Republicans</span> for having committed voting fraud in the 2004
election, and thus stolen the presidency.  <br>
<br>
Yes,
believe it or not, even a department of the U.S. Government (the most
honest one, maybe the only honest one under the present regime) points
the finger at the guilty.<br>
<br>
[ Just after the 2004 election, what
appeared to be  a very reliable source reported via email that
the
Republicans committed massive voting fraud in at least 15
states.  The
source also stated that journalists were frightened for their jobs and
did not dare speak openly.]<br>
<br>
[See Indymedia Miami, "GAO Report
CONFIRMS Stolen 2004 Presidential Election";  and take note of
a book
written by the authors of that article, Bob Fitrakis and Harvey
Wasserman, entitled <span
style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;">How the GOP
Stole America's 2004 Election + Is Rigging 2008</span>, available
via freepress.org and harveywasserman.com.] <br>
<br>
Voting fraud is becoming a Western world bore.  The USA and
now the UK and EU are doing it. <br>
<br style="color: rgb(160, 64, 255);">
<span style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(160, 64, 255);">The
Blair-New Labour Government</span><span
style="color: rgb(160, 64, 255);"> </span>has to date
relied on <span style="font-weight: bold;">all-postal
voting</span>
for their fraudulent practice. But Blair ---  obviously with
USA
fraudulent practices in mind --- has proposed the use of voting-<span
style="font-weight: bold;">technology,</span>
predictably for more ambitious fraud in future.<br>
<br>
<span style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(128, 0, 255);">The
European Union</span>
has its own version of the rigged election.  The unelected,
unaccountable (except to its Corporate masters -- e.g. the
Chemical-Drug--Biotechnology cartel, the giant banks) <span
style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(128, 0, 255);">
European Commission </span>simply
ignores election results --- as in France and the Netherlands regarding
the proposed European Constitution --- AND outright bans a popular
political party it does not like.<br>
<br>
Of course, there was the recently rigged election in <span
style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(128, 0, 255);">Mexico</span>
whereby the U.S. Corporation-friendly candidate eked out his
counterfeit victory.<br>
<br>
<br style="color: rgb(127, 0, 63);">
<span style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(127, 0, 63);">II. 
What To Do About It <br>
      [regarding the USA]<br>
</span><br>
We must get around the <span style="font-weight: bold;">Giant
Corporation-Government-corporate Mass Media axis</span>
which has been responsible for perpetrating voting fraud and rigged
elections in 2000 and 2004, and suppressing public knowledge of the
facts.<br>
[And, naturally, now suppresses knowledge of the General Accounting
Office's ultra-consequential Report.]<br>
<br style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(127, 0, 63);">
<span style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(127, 0, 63);">Grassroots
Public Information Campaigns are the way to establish a People's Mass
Media, </span><span
style="color: rgb(17, 17, 17); font-weight: bold;">thereby
getting around the Corporation-Government-corporate Mass Media axis and
its Thought Control practices.</span><br>
<br>
Although the Internet can play a significant role in a<span
style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(0, 0, 255);">
grassroots Public Information Campaigning movement for fair elections</span>,
the bulk of the job really must be done <br>
(1) <span style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(191, 0, 95);">door-to-door</span>
with<span style="text-decoration: underline;"> leaflets /
talking</span> and <br>
(2) similarly amongst <span
style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(191, 0, 95);">college/university
students</span>.<br style="text-decoration: underline;">
<span style="text-decoration: underline;">Major
information campaigns </span><span
style="font-weight: bold; text-decoration: underline;">MUST</span><span
style="text-decoration: underline;"> be conducted in
universities/colleges</span>.  <span
style="font-weight: bold;"></span><span
style="text-decoration: underline;"><span
style="font-weight: bold;">MUST</span>.</span><br
style="text-decoration: underline;">
<br>
(1) No technology should be allowed in the voting process, and most
certainly not when provided by extreme, unscrupulous, corporate
Republican partisans.<br>
<br>
(2)  Voting should involve, simply,  papers and
pencils and citizen watchdogs to see the count is straight.<br>
<br>
(3)  Perpetrators of the 2000 and 2004 voting frauds, who have
placed
the wrong person in the White House each time, must be publicly
pilloried, disempowered utterly, and dealt with severely according to
principles of Justice. <br>
<br>
(4) <span style="color: rgb(191, 0, 95);"> <span
style="font-weight: bold;">The American Public</span></span>,
as always with important matters, is largely ignorant and hence
passive.  <span style="font-weight: bold;">They
need to be <span style="text-decoration: underline;">educated
and politically activated</span> to demand fair elections and to
set about enforcing the demand</span>. <br>
<br>
<span style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(127, 0, 63);">College/University
students</span> should be prime recipients of such <span
style="font-weight: bold;">PUBLIC INFORMATION CAMPAIGNS</span>.<br>
<br>
The campaigning must begin NOW !!  <span
style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(127, 0, 63);">NOW!!</span><br>
<br>
<br>
P.S.  Question:  Is there any sap left in the
American tree?  Or are there only saps?
