Voter Suppression Attempts Increasing

With less than two weeks to go until the 2008 Presidential election and Republican Presidential candidate John McCain lagging so far behind in the polls while being dragged down by his barely-vetted vice presidential candidate, growing desperation is resulting in more fearmongering techniques and attempted acts of voter fraud, disenfranchisement and intimidation, voters are being fraudulently duped into registering as Republicans, numerous problems with voting machines flipping votes are being reported and millions of voters continue being purged — all in typical Republican tradition.

The Republican party’s desperation is becoming more evident on a daily basis. Smear campaigns and blatant lies that were once effectively used by the Republican party no longer have the desired affect. Campaign rallies by the McCain/Palin campaign are stirring up riots and potential acts of terrorism, but little else. McCain did receive an endorsement from al Qaeda though.

Ohio’s Secretary of State has received death threats since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a lawsuit by the Republican party and Ohio’s election web site has been hacked. Congress has received bomb threats and the New York Times, among others, has received postal mail with a white powdery substance. Just like clockwork, the threats and intimidations used to sway public opinion by the Bush administration are once again being utilized. As I’ve said before, the Republican party and the Bush regime will stoop to any level to make sure McCain gets appointed to the White House since he will continue Bush’s policies, and he’ll keep all the crimes committed by the Bush regime covered up — at least he’ll try to.

It’s not easy for the Bush administration and the Republican party to get away with things like they did the last two elections. Everyone is ready — almost to the point of expecting it — for the next attempted false flag attack by the Bush administration, and hiding something as big as the attacks of 9/11 again will be impossible. Don’t be surprised if another phony Osama bin Laden tape magically appears.

Problems With Electronic Voting Machines

Despite the known insecurities and vulnerabilities of electronic voting machines, the United States still uses them in important elections such as this one. Princeton University issued a redacted report and videos of their findings regarding the insecurities and inaccuracies of the Sequoia AVC Advantage 9.00H DRE Voting Machine. Their findings are alarming, and serve as another example of why it should be illegal to use electronic voting machines.

The AVC Advantage contains a computer that is easy to manipulate — it takes about 7 minutes — into taking votes for one candidate and converting them into votes for another by using a fraudulent computer program, noting that without voter-verified paper ballots, it’s extremely hard to know whether a voting machine is running the right program. The AVC Advantage machines also have a few user-interface flaws that can be fatal and used to disenfranchise voters.

Voters in West Virginia and Tennessee are reporting problems with using ESS Touch-Screens. When they try to vote for Obama, first it won’t register, then it flips to another candidate. The director and executive producer of an award-winning election integrity documentary experienced the electronic voting machine vote flipping firsthand. Still the Democratic party does absolutely nothing about it. More information can also be found from The West Virginia Gazette and AlterNet.

In the near future, as time allows, I’ll go more indepth about the ongoing Republican attempts to steal the election. In the meantime, links to more information can be found below.
