We have seen revolutions in Eurasia emerge the day after an election fraud. The people must come together in joy and celebration to KEEP their democracy! And now we have a chance to free our islands as the US deals with yet another election fraud. During the Orange Revolution in Ukraine, the Rose Revolution in former Soviet Georgia and the 5th October Overthrow in Serbia as well as other color revolutions it was the use of mass numbers in city centers, music, fun and colors that convinced civil servants, law enforcement and military to peacefully listen to the will of the people. We have a week to create a people's movement in living color and music as the third presidental election fraud spreads across the American Empire.

Those of us in the Cascadian (Pacific NorthWestern) states of Oregon, Washington and California are also vulnerable to this mass election fraud. Keep in mind the attempted election fraud in the governor's race in 2004 and how the corporate media is still protraying the current race as a near tie. And now the near corporate media tie in the Oregon Senator race with Mr Smith and Mr Smiths connections to Karl Rove and Dick Cheney over the Water War in the Klamath basin. Both Oregon and Washington State now have their vital records (birth certificates and death certificates) controlled byu VitalChek. VitalChek is owned by ChoicePoint which was directly involved in election fraud in other states using ghost voters. Ghost voters are dead citizens whose neames are used to commit election fraud hence voting while dead. Cascadians in Washington State and Oregon be prepared to march on Olympia or Salem with V masks and wearing the color of Evergreen! Those in California (Northern California being part of the bioregion of Cascadia) are already seeing vote machine problems and have experienced attempts at re-districting. Make Wednesday November 5th be Evergreen Wednesday! Fight to create a real democracy! Be the Evergreen Revolution! Be a Cascadian!

Before reading the story below PLEASE keep in mind the 5th of November is Evergreen Wednesday and to "Remember remember the Fifth of November" wear something of Evergreen (like a scarf or shirt) and a Guy Fawkes (V for Vendetta) mask.

By the way here is where you can get a cut out Guy Fawkes mask (share with family, friends and co-workers)

State After State, ES&S iVotronics Are Flipping Democratic Votes to Republican!
What You Can Do About It, And Where the Hell Are Those 'Thousands' of Obama/DNC Attorneys?...
 http://www.bradblog.com/?p=6559

This is just getting worse and worse. Now it's happening in Texas. (And in MO, if you read to the end of the article). And the vaunted "thousands of attorneys" from the Obama campaign and the DNC are still nowhere to be found.

With every incident so far reported of touch-screen vote-flipping during early voting in this year's general election --- from county to county in WV and in Nashville, TN) --- it's been the ES&S iVotronic touch-screen machine that has failed, flipping votes from one candidate to another not chosen by the voter. In most every instances [see update below], it's been an attempted Democratic vote, flipped to a Republican, or another party.

These are the same machines that lost 18,000 votes in Democratic-leaning Sarasota County in the 2006 U.S. House Race for Katherine Harris' old seat. The Democrat, Christine Jennings, was declared the loser to Republican Vern Buchanan (whose own wife had trouble voting for him that day), by just 369 votes. Several academic studies, and even the GAO, have been unable to rule out either tampering or hardware/software error for the disappeared 18,000 votes.

As we wrote earlier this week, after there was finally one report of a vote flipping from Democratic to Republican in TN (a very rare instance, btw), these machines need to be taken out of service now, impounded and quarantined immediately, and every voter needs to be given a paper ballot where these machines are currently being used. Voters who have such problems need to inform other voters waiting in line which machine should not be used (and we offer other tips below, as well).

[Update: The rare vote-flip from Republican to Democratic now seems to have been a hoax carried out by local Republicans, according to a TN election integrity activist who did some digging and reporting. Details here...]

The latest reports today of ES&S vote-flipping come from Palo Pinto County, TX, where two voters --- one of them an alternate election judge and office manager of the Palo Pinto County Democratic Headquarters --- saw straight-ticket Democratic votes flipped to straight-ticket Republican votes. Two times for the first person, and three times for the alternate election judge!

Looks like some states are having votes flipped from McCain to Obama instead.

This looks like an issue of poorly designed interface, not grand conpsiracy. Although honestly I still don't trust the machines.
