Electronic voting machines–can your Sec. of State vouch for the integrity of the system?

September 21, 2008

Americans had doubts over whether or not George Bush won the election in 2000.  Sadly, he was upheld as the winner by the U.S. Supreme Court. 

Americans again had doubts in 2004, but, no one had the stomach to push the issue.  No one wanted a long, protracted, divisive electoral process. 

The Chairman of Diebold, one of the companies that manufacturers electronic voting systems, GUARANTEED that Dubya would win the election in 2004 months before the election.  The company disavowed his remarks, but, there are many who believe that he and others know how to alter the machines to skew the results.  You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to do this.

Last week, I saw a video story in the Reno Gazette Journal showing how easy it is to manipulate the voting totals even with the “paper trail.”  Both the machine and the paper trail can be altered to skew election results.

If we can’t be 100% certain of the integrity of the electronic voting systems, then we shouldn’t be using them!  

What can you do?  Contact all your elected state government officials and raise this issue.  If they can’t certify the integrity of the system before the 2008 Presidential Election, then we shouldn’t use the electronic voting machines and they should institute their back-up plan.  

Demand integrity in your election process.  America deserves it!

Enough!  Democrat Dave

Economic meltdown–how it happened

September 21, 2008

Here is an excellent piece describing how we got into this horrific mess.  It’s not a quick read, but, it goes back to the S&L crisis and brings us forward to the present.  To not understand history is to repeat it.

We’ve got to do better.  We need real leadership.  Enough!   Obama-Biden 2008.
