BlackBoxVoting Challenges Bush Vote Fraud; Conducts Biggest FOIA Action in History

While Kerry has tried to deter citizen action by his swift capitulation and call to support Bush, not all people are in a daze after the Skull and Bones Con Game. Bev Harris of Black Box Voting is on it. Why is it that she can be more effective than the entire Democratic machinery with its 11,000 lawyers and millions of dollars? Because established power is so thoroughly corrupt that it cannot be trusted in any way. Only aroused citizen action can ring the bells of freedom and shine a light into the cancer that is the Skull and Bones Duopoly.
THURSDAY Nov. 4 2004: If you are concerned about what happened Tuesday, Nov. 2, you have found a home with our organization. Help America Audit.

Black Box Voting has taken the position that fraud took place in the 2004 election through electronic voting machines. We base this on hard evidence, documents obtained in public records requests, inside information, and other data indicative of manipulation of electronic voting systems. What we do not know is the specific scope of the fraud. We are working now to compile the proof, based not on soft evidence -- red flags, exit polls -- but core documents obtained by Black Box Voting in the most massive Freedom of Information action in history.

We need: Lawyers to enforce public records laws. Some counties have already notified us that they plan to stonewall by delaying delivery of the records. We need citizen volunteers for a number of specific actions. We need computer security professionals willing to GO PUBLIC with formal opinions on the evidence we provide, whether or not it involves DMCA complications. We need funds to pay for copies of the evidence.
One thing we can do... 06.Nov.2004 08:49

Have all the volunteers canvassing the neighborhoods, telling people to register to vote, also tell them to NOT USE THOSE MACHINES, in states and counties where unverifiable voting machines are used. Tell them to get mail-in ballots, or whatever is available in your state that is verifiable. We should have a major drive with this message. Every volunteer who goes door-to-door should also emphasize the need to use alternatives.

This will insure some sort of paper trail exists to later audit their votes.

Doing this will also convince such counties to abandon these machines, as they are swamped with a huge number of mail-in ballots and empty polling places with idle machines. This debate has been going on for the last few years and so far it hasn't made much difference, but swamping the counties with mail-in ballots will.

Guess how they count those paper ballots? The counters are also made by the big three e-voting companies. The voters need to investigate the voting process where they live. The people involved in buying and selling the vote counting system need to be monitored by the public and we must stay involved in keeping our vote counting systems open and honest. By the way, France is an excellent example of a nation that takes the vote counting process quite seriously. Check it out.
