The Way Back Machine Never Forgets
The ironic thing about all this is that APO/AE military votes
aren't tabulated until after the election is already declared!
> 20 Amazing Facts About Voting In The United States
> > 1. 80% of all votes in America are counted by only two companies:
>Diebold and ES&S.
> > 2. There is no federal agency with regulatory authority or oversight of the US voting machine industry.
> > 3. The vice-president of Diebold and the president of ES&S are brothers.
> > 4. The chairman and CEO of Diebold is a major Bush campaign organizer
>and donor who wrote in 2003 that he was "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year."
> > 5. 35% of ES&S is owned by Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, who became
>Senator based on votes counted by ES&S machines.
> > 6. Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, a long-time friend of the Bush
>family, was caught lying about his ownership of ES&S by the Senate Ethics Committee.
> > 7. Senator Chuck Hagel was on a short list of George W. Bush's vice-
> > presidential candidates.
> > 8. ES&S is the largest voting machine manufacturer in the US and counts almost 60% of all US votes.
> > 9. Diebold's new touch screen voting machines have no paper trail of any votes. In other words, there is no way to verify that the data coming
>out of the machine is the same as what was legitimately put in by voters.
>10. Diebold also makes ATMs, checkout scanners, and ticket machines, all of which log each transaction and can generate a paper trail.
>11. Diebold is based in Ohio.
>12. Diebold employs 5 convicted felons as developers. These are the people who write the voting machine computer code.
>13. Diebold's Senior Vice-President, Jeff Dean, himself is a convicted
>felon of 23 (TWENTY-THREE) counts of piracy/theft in the first degree.
>14. Diebold Senior Vice-President, Jeff Dean, was convicted also of
>planting "back doors" in his software and using a "high degree of sophistication" to evade detection over a period of two years.
>15. None of the international election observers were allowed in the polls in Ohio during the 2004 US. Presidential election.

>17. Right now, today, 30% of all US votes are carried out on unverifiable
>touch screen voting machines with no paper trail. (Elected officials and
>lawmakers on The Hill in Washington D.C. are silent about this since
>speaking out might cost them their next election.)
>18. Bush's Help America Vote Act of 2002 has as its goal to replace all
>machines with the new electronic touch screen systems with no paper trail.
>19. ALL-not some-but all the voting machine errors detected and reported
>went in favor of Bush, or Republican candidates in the US 2000 and 2004
>20. Major statistical voting oddities (odds on the order of 250 million to 1!) -again always favoring Bush- have been mathematically demonstrated by experts to be the equivalent of the Immaculate Conception. Was it God? or was it Judas?
>21. Dick Cheney used to work for Don Rumsfeld, and now Don Rumsfeld works under Dick Cheney. Cheney used to head up for a Big Oil corporation, and Rumsfeld used to head up a Big Pharm corporation. Cheney still exercises his stock options in Big Oil (tax credited to charity) and Rumsfeld still exercises his options in Big Pharma (avian flu vaccine). Both gentlemen realized huge increases in their net worth, since 9/11 destroyed has ours. Both men worked together under Reagan to develop One World Government, that is, government by the selected, not the elected, both of them a part of the permanent black ops US national-security apparatus - inhabitants of a world in which Presidents come and go, but PNAC keeps on fighting.
