Interesting story here about the rash of voting irregularities.

The more I read, the more I am convinced that the whole thing was a sham. In short, the article states that the exit polls were accurate in all the states except for the the key swing states that Bush needed to win. Odd. Huh?

It's becoming more obvious to me that if you wanted to conduct a bloodless coup by a military junta, the way you would want to do it is to rig the electoral process. If everyone is convinced that you've been re-elected, then there's no need to conduct a messy and no doubt bloody coup against those who really won. And that's exactly what the Republicans have done/are doing. With the 'liberal media' so eager to declare a clear winner quickly despite their protests that they would be fair and accurate this time, any questions about the electoral process are going to be ignored by the mainstream media. In the interests of 'healing the divide.' Or some bullshit.

My friend Clint thinks that Americans failed, in a sense, that we knowingly chose the wrong choice. I don't think so. I think we were cheated. I think that yes, lots of people did vote for Bush, but if there was any failure, it was a failure by the DNC to be paranoid enough to expect the worst possible scenario as a possibility. The Republicans are fighting dirty. It's time that the DNC either take them to task, or start fighting dirty themselves.

According to Greg Palast, if the voting procedures in Ohio hadn't been so seriously screwed up, Kerry would have won. In other words, the exit polls were accurate. It's just that some peoples votes count more than others. There are serious questions about the validity of this election, at least from my point of view. Even if it's going to be ignored by the so called 'liberal media.'

I know many people will read this and say 'oh no, Pete's put on his tinfoil hat. Here comes the conspiracy theories!'

Whatever. This election doesn't look any less rigged than 2000, to me. The Junta has won. They get to push through their agenda, emboldened, despite any protests of healing the national rift. We can look forward to truly Reaganesque deficits and perhaps even a Brazil-like collapse of the American dollar, not to mention the wrath of all the people that we'll be pissing off with our Pax Americana. Also, if you happen to be gay or are friendly to any form of civil rights then you can kiss any form of fairness or sanity goodbye. If they were willing to kick out or arrest grandmothers who wore Kerry-Edwards stickers from Bush rallies during the election, what won't they do now that they've 'won'?

Long live Caesar.
