Yeah Ki$han, we the people of the United States did elect AL Gore in 2000. The Republicans and Karl Rove stole it Florida. Again, in 2004 when people in Ohio were standing in driving rain and snow for 8 hours to elect Kerry, it was stolen by the usual suspects with the aid of Ken Blackwell. This time, the strategy has been to get enough massive voter turnout to make theft nearly impossible, although they are trying. In Colorado, some 200,000 voter rolls have been purged. It should come as no surprise that this only occurs in traditional Democratic districts. You know it`s bad when the United Nations feels our elections are so corrupt that they feel the need to have U.N. observers to watch our election process. I think enough people have had it with this bullshit that we will see record turnout and so far exit polls point to a landslide victory for Obama. I voted by mail last week here in Washington.
The people voting for Bush in Ohio had to drive through the same rain and snow. It's time to let the sour grapes conspiracy go. Al Gore fell victim to the electoral college system (And he's not the first, no one sheds any tears for poor Samuel Tilden), and while it is stupid and probably unfair,Bush had to play by the same rules. Kerry just got beat, fair and square. A 3 million vote difference is a fairly sized one as far as presidential elections, most have had a less than <5 million difference. Karl Rove is, incidentally, predicting an Obama victory.
An election fraud conspiracy would require the cooperation of hundreds, if not thousands of people. G. Gordon Liddy couldn't get a couple of Cubans in and out of a hotel without people finding out. Large scale conspiracies simply don't happen, there's too much evidence left lying around, and too many mouths with secrets that they're just dying to spill, for fame or fortune. People are bad at large scale organization, and they're even worse at keeping secrets.
By the way, the the The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe was asked to monitor the election by the State Dept. They also monitored 2004. All member countries are technically supposed to invite them for elections. I don't believe that many do, since they're almost as worthless as the UN. These things are done to add relevance to the organization in question as a way to cajole countries that actually need it.
