...we have to do it by enough votes that it will be hard for them to steal the election...
We did it, folks.
Greg Palast had a little pre-election prediction:
For six years now, our investigations team, at first on assignment for BBC TV and the Guardian, has been digging into the nitty-gritty of the gaming of US elections. We've found that November 7, 2006 is a day that will live in infamy. Four and a half million votes have been shoplifted. Here's how they'll do it, in three easy steps:
Three easy steps follow.
Add it all up -- all those Democratic-leaning votes rejected, barred and spoiled -- and the Republican Party begins Election Day with a 4.5 million-vote thumb on the vote-tally scale.
We can find reports of election day 'irregularities' aka 'Republitard vote theft crimes' everywhere. Here's just one example:
With hours left to go before polls close, reports of problems have been widespread, especially in states where close or "bellwether" elections are taking place, RAW STORY has learned.
Details and links follow that opener.
One last quote from Mr. Palast:
So, what are you going to do about it? May I suggest you -- steal back your vote.
It's true you can't win with 51% of the vote anymore. So just get over it. The regime's sneak attack via vote suppression will only net them 4.5 million votes, about 5% of the total. You should be able to beat that blindfolded. If you can't get 55%, then you're just a bunch of crybaby pussycats who don't deserve to win back America.
Looks like we slid the 'crybaby pussy
Ya done good, Americans. You beat the biggest criminal political machine in history by a knockout. The Repugs were right. For once. It's all about 'turnout'*. See what you can do when you get pissed-off in mass quantities? What took you so long?
It's a start.
