voting machines fraud in 2000

  1. With all the back and forth for and against Bush or Kerry in this forum, I haven't seen any mention of the issue of voting machine fraud by the Bush people in the 2000 election. Bush stole the election once, and he'll try to do it again. People need to know about this. Instead of ranting on my own, I'll give you a couple of links. The second is to a page in a site that contains language that Republicans may find offensive, but the story is clearly told. The third is a Google search - happy surfing!

    That's why my wife and I signed up to ALWAYS vote by absentee ballot, even when we're in town at election time. I don't trust those machines one bit, and I want my vote on paper somewhere. I urge everyone to go absentee. That will swamp the system, forcing elections officials to do something. It will also raise suspicions if the absentee results are vastly different from the electronic ones.

    I respectfully disagree with your assessment that Florida was the victim of voting machine fraud by the Bush people. It was voter error, pure & simple. Careless people who did not properly read/follow the instructions for the type of voting system used in their district caused a nightmare for a nation waiting to find out who its next president would be. Improperly prepared equipment (full of old chads from previous elections so that the current ballots' chads didn't properly fall through) was also a contributing factor, as was a poorly designed ballot. NONE of those factors were a conspiracy on the part of the Republicans to "steal" the election.

    I believe there was a conspiracy by republicans to steal the election, and it was successful. Katherine Harris is one of the major people responsible. She invalidated the votes of thousands of legitimate voters in Fla. In the imfamous pseudo "felon purge", she invalidated the votes of thousands of citizens, because they had names similar to those of convicted felons, or lived at addresses that were similar or near to where convicted felons lived. I watched a very informative documentary of the Florida election fraud on FSTV (Free Speach TV).

    A republican owned company is the supplier of many new voting machines that will be used in this year's upcoming election. The machines are called Diebold voting machines. The company providing these machines has already been implicated in election improprieties in Georgia and Fla.

    The owner of the Diebold company has publicly promised to "deliver the election to George W."

    If you Google Diebold, you will find many aticles from legitimate and respected sources concerning ballot tampering and election fraud involving Diebold.

    isn't that just lovely, another election in which votes will be lost, changed, or something else improper. Isn't it convenient that Bushie has already been PROMISED the election by the voting maching company, yet nothing is being done to check the machines???

    Lots of people are working to try to prevent ballot tampering by Diebold. Here are some links:

    COLUMBUS - The head of a company vying to sell voting machines (Diebold) in Ohio told Republicans in a recent fund-raising letter that he is "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year."
