  •  It does not have to be too late. (4.00)
    If Kerry files lawsuits they can follow this logic to one of two kinds of victories
    1. legal
    2. PR, creating a movement for reform

    It is a simple argument to compare Diebold counties and non-Diebold counties and note that non-Diebold counties are consistent with exit polls, but Diebold counties diverge. This is proof of fraud.

    If the courts accept the argument, we win the election

    If the courts throw out the argument, we still support the story as a moral defeat of the judges and their unreasonable reasoning. Out of this we create a movement to absolutely get rid of this avenue for fraud.

    Either way the Rethugs will ridicule us and the media will join in both cruidely and subtly. This does not matter. We already know that the only reason to ramrod in a Diebold system was to use its ability to be hacked.

    So we're right. So all we have to do is never forget that,and we will win.

    Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.

    •  Exit polls being changes on CNN, etc. (none)
      The machines need to be seized while they still may reasonably have the code on them that skewed the results.  If they are left unattended, they will be altered to clear the trail.

      Kerry should be filing to have these machines seized immediately.  They should then be examined by computer scientists for fraud.  If it is in the code, it can be found.  However, if the machines are altered and the code changed, there would be no way to tell.

      They can not manufacture a machine that can not be tampered with.  If the code is changed, there will be no trail.  They MUST seize the machines NOW!

      •  A clever programmer could erase the traces (none)
        That is, have the code overwrite its criminal parts with innocuous code when the vote was (almost) over.

        The medium shapes the message --
        we need better new media, more biased toward reality.
