Where I don't totally buy the exit poll number discrepancy's, even though he does make a good case for fraud, the fact remains that Republican's have done everything humanly possible to disenfranchise and suppress minority voters from at least 2000 through to this present day. Something that should not even be happening in this country. So I do believe they are more than capable of stealing an election. In my mind, once one election has been stolen, it should make the individual's veracity suspect from then on out and the outcome of an election questioned. But, that doesn't seem to be the case here. The Republican's have proven themselves capable of fraud. If we cannot have a fair election in this country...we no longer have a democracy. But, unfortunately no one questioned Republican's lack of integrity in 2004 when it came to tactics they definitely used to deliberately suppress voters. That much I am absolutely positive happened. Especially the media that we all know is decidedly run by big business these days that is Republican.
It has a section on the electronic voting machines we all use at election time and the overall problems with them. There is no inspection or oversight of the machines. The type of people who make and manufacture them are less than reputable people. The most disturbing aspect most are partisan Republicans dedicated to their party and ensuring they constantly win. That comes to me as a huge conflict of interest that should not be allowed to stand.
They give a section on what the state of Nevada (where I live) does in regards to keeping the gaming industry honest (everyone needs oversight or they will eventually try and cheat. It's human nature for so many). They need that kind of oversight when it comes to electronic voting machines. The idea that no one is allowed to look inside and see how they are put together, how they function, how they store information, inner workings or the type of computer chip that is used should terrify everyone in this country. There is no way to recount votes should there be election day problems. Which is something that should not be allowed to stand in this country. We are supposed to be above such behavior. The ones in my state have a print out that I always use after I have made my choices. And I go to a lot of effort to take my time, making sure everything is correct before I cast my ballot. But, I am still not positive my vote hasn't been stolen on occasions like it was in 2000. They should want the vote in this country to be honest and above suspicion. So I am more than pleased with the book and have given it high marks.
Does that sound at all plausible? Of course not. It never happened. This election was stolen. It probably ended up pretty much like the one Obama won this week over John McCain.
I'd like to point out in this review that the #1 reason fraud-doubters blow off the exit polls from this election is because such polls have been "trending" Democratic for years. That is to say they've been pulling away from the final tally all that time; and that these final tallies have been increasingly skewed to the Republicans. So they're a worthless tool for sniffing out election fraud, and millions of formerly rational Americans must have gotten kicked in the head between 2000 and 2004.
Of course, that argument is based on the assumption that THOSE TALLIES HAVE NOT ALSO BEEN RIGGED. Rome wasn't built in a day my friends. If you're going to steal a national election you have to work up to that, and previous exit polls may have been picking up on that budding network of psychopathology.
Dr. Freeman... If you're reading this you might want to look over that trend. ESPECIALLY when Karl Rove's involved. It's the next logical step.
This book provides a huge amount of statistical evidence that the official results do not match what actually hapenned in the 2004 election. It's very convincing, and hopefully will demonstrate to many people that we will lose our democracy if we don't demand fair elections.
