Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In his book "Armed Madhouse..." author Greg Palast quotes Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. "It's not the votes that count. It's who counts the votes." After you read the dry but factual 116 pages of this book, you will come to the inescapable conclusion that the election was stolen from presidential candidate John Kerry and given to Mr. Bush.

The book is divided into facts (what happened) and analysis (the motive and how it could have happened). It starts with Ohio's secretary of state, a republican, Kenneth Blackwell who promised to "fill in the blanks" regarding voting anomalies but has kept silent in the finest tradition of "political omerta." He has refused to initiate any investigations, and has tried his best to have the ballots destroyed.

Here's some of what Conyers uncovers:

Republican challengers were at every precinct causing massive voting delays. This is called caging, and it is illegal. Republican challengers targeted 97% of new voters in black areas. They only challenged 14% of new voters in white areas.

There were voting machine lockdowns preventing observation of ballot counts. This too is illegal.

There were flipped votes. Voters reported that they had voted for Kerry and watched their vote register for George Bush. These "glitches" were called "calibration problems."

The number of votes vs. voters. In many places the number of voter turn-out exceeded 100%. (?) In one case nearly 19,000 votes were added after all precincts reported.

There were repairs being made by the electronic voting machine company while the ballots were being recounted. This too is illegal.

In Ohio the exit polls which asked the people how they voted, showed that Kerry had won. Men and women voters gave a majority to Kerry.

Rep. John Conyers's brave report on the massive irregularities in Ohio's 2004 Presidential Election signal a strong and urgent warning call for all concerned citizens. While Republicans in the House and Senate were quick to dismiss the report, saying that "There is no such thing as a perfect election," they failed to understand that ALL irregularities favored Bush. From under-equipped precincts in African-American communities, an illegal closure of a counting center in Warren County, and large-scale destruction of voter registration, "Preserving Democracy" makes it clear to all that no election remains secure as long as we allow this (...) to continue in our country.

Rep. John Conyers, (D - Michigan, the ranking minority chair of the House Judiciary Committee, led eleven Democratic Congressman (Republicans boycotted this investigation) and their staffers into the swamp that was the 2004 Presidential election in Ohio. Conyers had come to answer an essential question -- What Went Wrong in Ohio? The investigation was conducted despite the difficulties caused by Bush (whose selection in 2000 led to an apology from Justice John Paul Stevens for the behavior of the 5 -4 majority of the Court in the matter of Bush v Gore) and of the Republican majority in Congress.

In the introduction, Gore Videl says that when asked who would win in `04, he said that Bush would lose again, but he was confident that in the four years between 2000 and 2004, creative propaganda and the fixing of elections might very well be perfected so as to ensure an official victory for Bush. As this report shows in great detail with very thorough documentation of sources, Ohio was carefully set up to deliver an apparent victory for Bush even though Kerry appears to be not only the popular winner but the Electoral College winner.

This report states categorically, "With regards to our factual findings, in brief, we find that there were massive and unprecedented voter irregularities and anomalies in Ohio.

44 of 49 people found the following review helpful By Ray Beckerman on August 3, 2005
Format: Paperback
There is no other way to put it: this is a landmark document in American history. It establishes beyond doubt that the electors from the swing state of Ohio in 2004 were appointed illegally, in violation of state and federal law, and in violation of the United States Constitution.

It was prepared in the thick of the controversy, and presented to all members of Congress prior to their acceptance of the Ohio electors.

That all but 1 Senator, and all but 31 Congresspeople, chose to accept those electors, anyway, represented one of the lowest points in the history of our nation, as it was a crass, flagrant, and unprincipled abandonment of the rule of law to do so.

Historians will be scrutinizing this period, to understand how the nation that introduced democracy to the modern world, became, in essence, a dictatorship.

And it will be clear to all posterity that Congressman Conyers, all the House Judiciary Democrats, and their fantastic staff, were heroes, fighting against overwhelming odds for the preservation of Liberty itself.

This document is a landmark. Every American must read it.
