Exit Polls to Protect the Vote
By : Martin Plissner - Sunday November 7, 2004
2 comments
Published: October 17, 2004 WASHINGTON - Since the 1960’s, the exit poll, that staple of election-night television, has been used along with other tools to declare winners when the polls close in each state, and its accuracy is noted later when the actual vote count proves it right. A landmark exception, of course, came in 2000, when the networks initially gave the decisive Florida vote to Al Gore. But now exit polls are being used in some places to monitor the official vote count (...)

Bush Vs. Bin Laden: The propaganda war
By : 2nd-op - Sunday November 7, 2004

Bush Vs. Bin Laden: The propaganda war by: An American citizen soon to be arrested for thought crimes. Like Bin Laden, Bush has been highly effective in winning the hearts and minds of the people. OBL has used the same strategy and techniques that were taught to him by the CIA. Why is it working for Osama and not Bush? Bush has not been able to control the media as well as Osama, even though most of the corporate US media has been complicit in helping to hide the realities of the war on (...)

Growing Collection of Vote Fraud links: ATTN Global Media
By : Richard Lofgren - Sunday November 7, 2004
23 comments
The list of evidence is growing that the US election was anything but a fair vote. Who could possibly think that all of these voting problems are just a minor aberation? The long lines are always in Democratic counties, that the computer ’glitches’ always favor Bush, and the new e-machines were made by a Bush ’Pioneer’ (top donor) that pledged to deliver for Bush. Funny how Diebold makes bank machines which print paper receipts millions of times daily, but they (...)

If Republicans Want An End To Questioning The Legitemacy of Their Elected Candidates...
By : Dan Stafford - Saturday November 6, 2004
16 comments
I’m reserving judgement until all the results are in and all evidence reviewed, but in the mean time, I think we Democrats should start a voting machine manufacturing company, and start pursuing election and appointment of devoted Democrats in elections offices in every state, and organize crews to challenge Republican voters in every precinct in every state. If the Republicans want votes that can be hacked, let’s go in open warfare mode and make sure we can disenfranchise as (...)

Quoting Molly Ivins:
By : Dan Stafford - Saturday November 6, 2004

The Bush administration is going to be wired around the neck of the American people for four more years, long enough for the stench to sicken everybody. It should cure the country of electing Republicans. So, fellow progressives, stop thinking about suicide or moving abroad. Want to feel better? Eat a sour grape, then do something immediately, now, today. Figure out what you can do to help rescue the country — join something, send a little money to some group, call somewhere and (...)

From February 2003: A Lesson Democrats Got A solid "F" On...
By : Politicasso - Friday November 5, 2004
First, an open letter to the Democratic constituency: How on Earth can we get the Democratic leadership to listen? Is it even possible? Surely after the defeat handed this party with the forces they managed to muster, they must realize there is something horribly wrong with their thinking? I am hearing everywhere that John Kerry abandoned his promise to make every vote count and capitulated far too easily, and that is being used to highlight the perception that Democrats are morally weak (...)

Too many voting ’irregularities’ to be coincidence
By : Ben Frank - Friday November 5, 2004

Right now there is no hard proof, but the circumstantial evidence is a mile high. Looking at all of these ’irregularities’ it’s hard to imagine how one could conclude that this election was clean. 1. There were complaints in several states about the touchscreen voting machines not working properly. Roberta Harvey, 57, of Clearwater, Fla., said she had tried at least a half dozen times to select Kerry-Edwards when she voted Tuesday at Northwood Presbyterian Church. (...)

Kerry Won. Here are the Facts.
By : Greg Palast - Friday November 5, 2004
84 comments
Kerry Won. Here are the Facts. Thursday, November 4, 2004 Bush won Ohio by 136,483 votes. Typically in the United States, about 3 percent of votes cast are voided-known as “spoilage” in election jargon-because the ballots cast are inconclusive. Drawing on what happened in Florida and studies of elections past, Palast argues that if Ohio’s discarded ballots were counted, Kerry would have won the state. Today, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports there are a total of (...)

Presidential Votes Miscast on E-Voting Machines Across the Country
By : usa - Friday November 5, 2004
21 comments
Voters from at least half a dozen states reported that touch-screen voting machines had incorrectly recorded their choices, including for president. Voters discovered the problems when checking the review screen at the end of the voting process. They found, to their surprise, that the machines indicated that they voted for one candidate when they had voted for another. When voters tried to correct the problem, the machine often made the same error several times. While in most cases the (...)

Interchangeable Figureheads. Selling the War on Terror
By : LANCE SELFA - Thursday November 4, 2004
3 comments
By LANCE SELFA The great open secret of American political stability is the way the two-party system works to insulate the ruling class from the consequences of its disastrous policies. When one party dedicated to carrying out the big business and imperial agenda falls out of favor with the voters, there’s always the other one, waiting in the wings with predictable policies, ready to take over. In this way, American voters get to "throw the bums out," while at the same time replacing (...)

Election Reactions from Germany : "Our Values Systems are Separating"

George Bush has been re-elected. Leading German foreign policy experts tell SPIEGEL INTERNATIONAL what the outcome means for transatlantic relations. Even before Kerry’s Wednesday concession, politicians and thinkers in Germany were at work strategizing the future of foreign relations with the world’s only superpower. A number of serious issues divide Germany and the United States — from the go-it-alone attitude of incumbent President George W. Bush to the Iraq war to (...)

George Bush won the popular vote- and pigs are flying

There is no possible way that Dubya won the popular vote- it simply isn’t true. Consider this quote from a poster on democraticunderground.com, "I know dozens of 2000 Bush voters that are voting for Kerry this time, and none that have switched the other way." This pretty much sums it up, 2000 the race was a dead heat, and now after four years of the Bush nightmare we’re supposed to believe he has even more support?

Half of us in the USA were allowed to and quite a few million more wanted to vote for something different. With the electronic voting machines made by Republicans and the Republicans throwing Democratic voter registrations in the trash and going all out to invalidate Democratic voter registrations from the polls, millions were disenfranchised by the party of crooks and cheats and lies. I hope the rest of the world will remember those simple facts. There is not any such thing as a clear (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
