Ever hot on the verifiable election trail/vote fraud trail, BradBlog has posted the CNN Lou Dobb's transcript on the Princeton study of the new Diebold machines, being used thanks to the misnamed Help America Vote Act. No wonder Bush isn't worried about the Dem's taking over after the November Election. Said Kitty Pilgrim:
"The Princeton group only studied one type of machine, that model will be used in 357 counties across the country by 10 percent of the voters in November. They say the vote can be easily manipulated without being detected.
"The malicious software can modify all the records, audit logs, and counters kept by the voting machine. So that even careful forensic examination of these records will find nothing amiss."
If we lose 10 percent of the vote (and we know there are other ways of stealing besides Diebold and other electronic voting machines), democracy is sunk. The only remedy is to go out in massive numbers and vote, Democrats and Independents and thought-full Republicans, so that we can gain our country back. Then be prepared to go out on the street on Wednesday, November, to demand a re-vote if necessary. (A recount on such hacked machines won't show anything different.) We must demand exit polling of voters by reputable groups such as Zogby to see if things are accurate. (And NOT let the media dismiss the results, which is what they did with Kerry.)
Personally, I think we should demand paper ballots now. They are countable now. The people working my ED could count the 200 or 300 ballots of those probably going to vote. And if more show up and vote, great. Give the poll workers coffee. Heck, I'll volunteer to help them count 'em -- or at least buy 'em coffee.
Much to be done -- for peace, justice AND democracy. God help us. But remember, "God helps those who help themselves." Quit saying "They should do something about it." "They" is US, "We the People". Get active. Now! If you are active, get MORE active. Our democracy is at stake.
