20 Amazing Facts About Voting in the USA

With so much happening now to expose the deceit of the Bush administration, it is a good time think back on the last two presidential and Congressional elections, as well as considering those yet to come. The below materials, forwarded to me by a friend who's also a journalist, offers not only alarming facts about the cronyism and monopoly inherent in the companies that tally up our very votes, but also their ties to the Bush agenda. Thought you had enough issues to be p... off about before? Like Jello, there's always room for anger, that is--if it leads us to act. Please be sure to at least forward this out widely.

FYI: This is a great set of links for your edification. Even if you are not in the USA you can get an idea just how corrupt the people we are fighting to get our country back from really are. This is a not a dead issue until every state rejects non-verifiable electronic voting! Until then our "democracy" is a Republican-sponsored farce! Every Senator and Congressman both on a State and Federal level who does not support Verifiable Voting must be defeated regardless of party affiliation. Please do not succumb to denial and/or depression. Remember New Orleans and the 90,000 square miles that were leveled by Katrina alone in the Gulf States. Think about how you and your family will fare when such a disaster visits your community! Rise up off of your behinds and get to work. These people are killing our children in Iraq for the sake of their lies. Are we stupid? Are we alive? If we are not stupid and we still count ourselves among the living, then we have an immediate and Patriotic Duty to reclaim our country and our lives from the tyranny of these monsters. If you are in denial, then snap out of it! Send this email on to as many of your contacts who might still be human while you still can. This is not a joke. By the time these morons admit what they have done to the Earth it will be The Day After Tomorrow!
