To quote my idol, Ms. Ani Difranco...
"Because take away our Playstations
and we are a third world nation
under the thumb of some blue blood royal son
who stole the oval office and that phony election
it don't take a weatherman
to look around and see the weather
Jeb said he'd deliver Florida, folks
and boy did he ever"
Republican voter fraud more prominent than Democratic voter fraud....now that's a joke...
In the 2000 election, there were 14,000 voters in New York that had dual registrations, most of which were in Florida, and in June of 2002, the Washington Post reported, duplicate voter registration and other voter fraud in 11 states after the 2000 election where over 140,000 persons had been eligible to vote in at least 2 jurisdictions.
For its Aug. 22 edition, the New York Daily News compared Florida's and Gotham's voter rolls. It discovered 45,882 voters who appear to be registered in both places. They are 68 percent Democrat and 12 percent Republican, while 16 percent chose no party. Between 400 and 1,000 of them voted twice in at least one election. This federal offense carries up to a $10,000 fine and five years behind bars. One couple allegedly voted in person in Brooklyn and absentee in Miami in 1996 and 1998. When the News called for comment, a man said, "I'm not here today," then hung up the phone.
GOP activist Shelley Hayner and 11 volunteers audited the votes in Dona Ana County, New Mexico. Among other glitches, they discovered that 5,509 absentee ballots were submitted with signatures, yet 6,456 were counted in the November 2000 final, official tally. When journalist Federico Almarez asked Denise Lamb in the secretary of state's office to explain these 947 phantom votes, she blamed "administrative lapses."
Albert Gore won New Mexico by 366 votes.
if you want more....i have more facts to present....or you could just ignore them like the media chooses to....
What scares me is the whole touch-screen voting thing.... there's no way to do a re-count! No paper ballots exist with these voting machines AT ALL. And Diebold (the manufacturer of many voting amchines) is a big Republican party contributor, whose CEO has promised, and I quote: "to deliver this election to the Republicans."
There should be a huge public outcry over this, but there doesn't seem to be. No matter what someone's political affiliation, I would think that a rigged election would scare them. Sigh, I guess we'll have to wait and see!
I think the cartoon has a deeper meaning like voting for kerry is just like voting for bush considering kerry is pro occupation of iraq pro israel and has pledged loyality to Israel and Ariel Sharon voted for Plan Colombia pro free trade and wants more cops on the streets
OMG! haha, this is so rad... and SO true. I remember. But does America? We need Bush out. He says that Kerry flip-flops his position to suit the facts on things... well, Bush flip-flops the facts to suit his position. Who's the more intelligent one?
Actually...few of the "facts" in Michel Moore's amazing "doumentary" are true....if you want more information you should visit this website [link] or look for the movie FarenHype 9/11, which can be found at your local blockbuster or on [link]
I would suggest to all to watch both films....i wouldn't want to seem totally biased...the only way to KNOW both sides of the argument is to examine BOTH sides....
