good to know I'm not the only one out there who thinks that Ohio and Florida were rigged.

Diebold machines were widespread in both states, exit polls were completely out of touch with the final results (only two states where that happened), and they were both crucial states to determine the election.
There's accounts out there already of weird guys dressed in black driving a PT cruiser going to polling places throughout Ohio and doing mysterious, secretive things. A letter from the Diebold CEO to Bush, saying that he was looking forward to "delivering Ohio's electoral votes to the President."
Creepy shit.

Given that the race seems to have been decided by the nebulous "morality" voter, and given that Ohioans passed a ballot initiative on one of the "morality" issues by a ridonculous majority, I'm less inclined to call shenanigans on the part of the voting machine manufacturer.

Then again, I am also less inclined to feel sorry for leaving my truck for the express purpose of pissing on the state last year.

Heh .. I hate Ohio for so many reasons.. this just adds to the list.

Also I voted on electronic ballot.. not sure if it was Diebold but one thing that got me was a sign out in front of them. No wireless devices near the voting machines. Now I'm fairly sure that these weren't made with airplane parts.. but still wtf? A strong wireless device is going to kill the voting machine?

It's very strange that no one wants to talk about this. Everyone knew the Diebold machines were horrible -- terrible security, no paper audit trail, black-box "who knows?" internal functionality, the fact that the CEO of the company is a huge, craven Bush supporter. For some reason, these machines were allowed to be used in a real election. It's absolutely unfathomable. Voters could demand a paper ballot, but if lines were long, I doubt many of them bothered. And if they did get a paper ballot, maybe it was provisional and not even counted before Kerry's concession?

No one's going to challenge it, because what is there to challenge? There's nothing but circumstantial evidence. The machines should never have been allowable under law, but since they were, they're regarded ipso facto as legitimate. It's as though you could legalize murder, and suddenly everyone would think murder was OK.

Election fraud has become the perfect crime.
