election fraud


How honest is our electoral system? The history of political machines, both Democrat and Republican, does encourage optimism. With the advent of computerized voting, and "Vote by Mail(fraud)" it is even more suspect. We need checks and balances.
The questions that have to be asked is does our voting system have integrity?

Does my vote really count?

How do we go about ensuring fair and honest elections?

Certainly Oregon's "Vote By Mailfraud" scheme is not reliable. Too many barriers to watching the count take place. Too easy to come up with the "correct" count. It is not convenient if it is not honest. As long as the count takes place behind closed doors by government employees who are beholden to the Political Establishment you cannot "count" on an honest election. The only way to have an honest election is with paper ballots counted at the precinct level by ordinary citizens not beholden, owned, by the Political Establishment.

It's all here, too much to read in one day.  I suggest you get a cup of coffee and start out by reading Votescam.  Votescam lays out the blueprint that everything else is essentially built apon. Save for future reference and send out to everyone! 
"The concept is clear, simple, and it works. Computerized voting gives the power of selection, without fear of discovery, to whomever controls the computer,"  - James & Kenneth Collier, authors of VoteScam (1992)

"There are no documented cases of electronic vote-rigging occurring anywhere in the country, but only because it's nearly impossible to prove."

"Hand counting is the gold standard against which we check machine counting efficiency."  - James Baker

"Those who cast the votes decide nothing, those who count the votes decide everything."
- Joseph Stalin

"I think it is safe to say at this point that the election of 2002 lacks any credibility at this point. Too many "mistakes", too many malfunctions, too many missing documents, too many dirty tricks, all combine to destroy the illusion that the results to be announced have any basis other than in wishful thinking by those in control of the vote counting process. Certainly the sudden abandonment of the VNS exit polls suggests that the actual polling results are so far out of alignment with the desired results that the media predictions had to be shut down."

Votescam. This is as good a place as any to start and this is what initially sparked my interest to really dig into this story and find out more. Go to the link marked "Chapters" and read all about it.
