  •  Bingo! (none)
    It's not whacked-out conspiracy theory when manipulation of electronic voting has already been achieved.  Any cursory study of this subject and Bev Harris's seminal work shows that Republicans manufacture the machines, vote them into use, discourage paper trails, and then manipulate the results.  Simple as that.  We need to lift the blinders off and realize that this isn't just a "possibility", it is a concerted effort on behalf of the GOP to retain power and institute a one-party theocracy.

    •  I would add (none)
      the observation that exit polling was "voluntarily" not used during the 2002 midterms, as a "response" to the media's "error" in predicting that Al Gore would win the popular vote in 2000. This enabled a history-defying GOP sweep to be more easily swallowed.

      For me, the discontinuing of the exit polls was the first red flag. As long as they were there to give conflicting results from the cooked voting machines, there would always be questions.

      And since (presumably) you can't fake people's responses to the simple question, "So who'd you vote for?" the exit polls just had to go.

      •  Will exit polls be conducted this time? (none)
        I hope so.

        You know, I too am starting to believe that Gallup (and others) are rigging the polls to allow the rigged voting machines showing a Bush victory to be believable.

        Which means we are no longer living in a democracy, but a dictatorship.

        :(
