Are the Dems Committing Vote Fraud?
This all goes to show that America is a long, long way from being a real democracy. We can't become a real democracy until we prosecute all those of every party who have done vote tampering and other methods of vote fraud. We have to have laws with real teeth in them to get to a real democracy free of numerous types of vote tampering and fraud. Regardless of party all those who tamper with the vote process need to be prosecuted and removed from political tampering. America will continue to bleed until we get rid of political greed.
The corporations have an iron grip on American politics and the only way out of it is for us to put our red shirts back on. It is time to take to the streets like the latino's did. We seem to have forgotten that the twelve year war in Viet Nam was the product of both Democrats and Republicans. Honest politicians like Kucinich and Conyers are swamped. Our local progressive Bob Filner has just voted for the repeal of the estate tax. When queried about this his office explained that it was log rolling. I am taking a razor blade and chiseling his bumper sticker off of my van. No enemy is more dangerous than a traitor in one's own camp.
Its all of us against the greedy corporations. We have to stop thinking 'Democrat' and 'Republican' and start thinking about which person will represent us against the corporate takeover of our government. If those elected to Congress won't reform campaign finance then we the people should consider getting smart (I know, I know...) and voting for the candidate with the least money, and the most heart. In the end, short of Diebold cheating, we are responsible for devouring the media glitz.

.Why did Scheurer run as an independent this time around?
Posted by: thoughtcriminal on Jun 24, 2006 9:30 AM .../... ...so, why didn't this guy run as a Democratic candidate in the primary? Did polls indicate that he'd be trounced? In addition, just because someone set up some false contract with the guy - why did he do that? Why didn't he at least check out the person who was going to gather all these signatures? Maybe call him at his office and verify things? If he is that dumb, then I wouldn't want him as a political candidate anyway.
If you want to write about vote fraud, look into Ohio 2004 and Florida 2000 and the current plan to steal the 2008 and 2006 elections using rigged electronic voting machines. Here you have a hell of a lot more evidence then an apparently anecdotal tale involving a mysterious stranger that noone can find. Diebold, on the other hand, is in the phone book.
I can hear it now - "but we want politicians who are morally solid, who stand up for what they believe in, who can lead us to a new and glorious progressive future, and we need to vote our hopes, not our fears!". This is politics you are talking about, remember? Wake up and smell the bullshit! You think that someone is going to ride up and save you from fascism?
Take a look at the recent imigrant rights rally - did you see different groups of immigrants from different parts of the world attacking each other? NO! Despite all their differences, they managed to put them aside and work towards a common well-defined goal - you didn't seem them grandstanding for their own narrow interests.
Success requires good strategy, good diplomacy, and good execution. Now, write that on the blackboard a hundred times.

Well, if you turn it on, present company included, the idiots rambling on on cable television...
