Holy Shit!!

Read this, and think about all the crap Georgie Boy has done in the last two years (including right wing supreme court appointments), and then cry for the United States.

I knew a lot of this before, but the Rollin Stone has put it together in such a stark, well footnoted, picture that I despair of our country ever having truly fair elections ever again, unless we the people get mean about our franchise and demand it.

We need to hold all election officials' feet to the fire of public wrath. We need to expose, and then vigorously, thoroughly, and firmly prosecute all such acts of malice and fraud against the people of this nation. This massive fraud is nothing less than treason against the Constitution and People of the United States. A part of mind snarls "hangin's too good fer 'em".

From the last page of the article:
If people lose faith that their votes are accurately and faithfully recorded, they will abandon the ballot box.

My addendum to that is this: If the people of the United States abandon the ballot box because it can't be trusted, then they will likely resort to the bullet box to reclaim what is theirs.

I really wouldn't like that to happen.

Very depressing. And amazing how the liberal-controlled *cough* MSM won't touch a story like this.

I hate to say it, but it looks like that'll happen sooner or later. The Republicans aren't just going to roll over in 2008 and let the Democrats in.

Which means that the only way they can win is by massive voting fraud, because they simpy don't have the support they did in 2004 and it's not likely to get much better by then.

Ergo, it'll be obvious to most people that they cheated, thus the people will lose faith in the system. Somehow I doubt the Republicans will react well to public calls for their removal. Almost certainly they would move to block impeachment of whomever gets elected. [Jeb Bush most likely].

End result... with all legal means of reddress blocked, and increasingly draconian measures to silence oppersition likely. The only way out would be armed insurrection.

One can only hope that the restored government is more libral, and that the movement isn't hijacked by some b*stard out for personal gain.
