Vote Fraud Endemic In United States

voting machineI find it interesting that Newt canceled events in SC due to lack of interest, but lo and behold he has somehow become the victor….

“Go back to bed, America, your government has figured out how it all transpired. Go back to bed America, your government is in control. Here, here’s American Gladiators. Watch this, shut up, go back to bed America, here is American Gladiators, here is 56 channels of it! Watch these pituitary retards bang their fucking skulls together and congratulate you on the living in the land of freedom. Here you go America – you are free to do what we tell you! You are free to do what we tell you!” – Bill Hicks

Thanks to Gunther Ruckl for the story tip! From BradBlog.com:

The voting systems in use for the nation’s first three all-important electoral contests in the 2012 primary — from Iowa to New Hampshire to Saturday’s South Carolina Primary — go from pretty great to intolerably horrible. And then comes Florida, which deserves its very own special category, thereafter.

The “First-in-the-Nation” caucuses in Iowa allowed voters to vote on hand-marked paper ballots, counted by hand in front of the public at the caucus site, with results announced to everyone right then and there before being called in to GOP headquarters and before ballots were move anywhere. The wonderfully transparent system allowed for Republican voters by the Iowa GOP (which they hypocritically fight against allowing for everybody else in other states, and even in their own during general elections) is just about as close as we general get in this country to Democracy’s Gold Standard. It’s also what allowed reporting errors to be discovered and confirmed by the public after an election with some 122,000 votes counted transparently within an hour or so of polls closing, leading to almost nobody charging “fraud” even though just 34 votes are said to separate first and second place in the certified results of the impossibly, and historically, close election.

As of the “First-in-the-Nation” primary in New Hampshire, however, election transparency for voters and their ability to oversee their own elections began to disappear. While a lucky 10% of voters enjoyed hand-marked, publicly hand-counted paper ballots, the rest of the state’s voters were allowed to vote on hand-marked paper ballots, but forced to tolerate secret tabulation on oft-failedeasily-manipulatedDiebold optical-scan systems programmed by a company (LHS) with a history of criminal behavior and convictions. The results from those 90% of Granite State voters may have been tallied accurately by the Diebold op-scanners or, as seen in the disastrous 2008 Presidential Primary, not

    RE :
    I don’t understand how in today’s society you could justify the idea of anonymity when voting for a president or a representative. And it’s been getting worse, now with computerized voting you don’t even have material evidence of the vote. Here’s my idea of a voting system for america : -step one : you wait in line, and when it’s your turn you stand in front of a camera and say who your voting for.-step two : the votes are counted publicly by viewing the tape. That way you can watch your part online and see that your vote was counted. Why should voting be anonymous ? I mean a good reason why, saying “that’s the way it’s always been” doesn’t work.

      Because there are times & places where you could be harassed, beaten or killed for voting for the “wrong” candidate, or coerced into voting for someone you don’t want. That’s why it’s important to have anonymous votes. Did you never study any history?

        its the counting that has to be transparent, not the voting itself

    i you really want to make your vote count… work for diebold inc.  :(

  • Heath

    Fueled by the propaganda machine was your vote your own and did it ever really count?

  • Noggin

    This is profoundly stupid. Please learn how the American party system works before whining about how it’s not fair. Voting in this crap is not a right, it’s something the parties decided to allow. They could be 100% fraudulent and it’s perfectly constitutional.

      Let’s expose the stupidity and than be smart enough to do something about it.

    sounds like the same old jazz….?
    no surprise here. lies, deception, and all right in your face.
    welcome to America, pay your taxes or go to jail.

    Totally fed up!!! There’s no sense in voting anymore for me. They can change my vote to suit them and nobody seems to care. Bullsh*t!!!! Voting fraud first went main stream media in the Bush era, and it,s still occurring. I,m not seeing this in the prime time news. They control that too. I quit. No more voting for me.

    I read his blog,  This… “It’s a helluva way to run the “World’s Greatest Democracy”, ain’t it?”  I thought America is a Republic?

    It is so frustrating to see the powers that be just do whatever they like, they have no intention of letting the people do anything they don’t tell them they can do.  The fraud is so wide spread it’s beyond ridiculous and nauseating at the same time.

    All votes should be on paper, and all votes should be counted in public view.  But that won’t happen because it gives some control back to the people and since they already have control why would they ever leave it to chance. Why would they ever give it up.

    A melt down of society is not what I want to see but it may have to come to that.  I’m surprised we have not seen “the people” react ah, negatively.   They do what they want with no repercussions.

    Why don’t they just have two buttons:  A can say “This doesn’t count”  and B will just say “Yahtzee!”  

    And if you choose A, the screen plays the most popular youtube video of the day, while a cardboard likeness of the predestined winner pretends to pee on your face.   -__-
