I have this theory that election theft is becoming more and more rampant throughout the world.
I blame the members of congress who have intentionally neglected to pass tight legislation banning un-recountable electronic voting. The US is now setting the standard for crooked elections around the world. Shame on the congress.
There have been more than enough warnings. Rush Holt made a half-hearted effort to at least put a band-aid on the problem. Even his efforts ended up being watered down, probably due to lobbyists.
It used to be that exit polls were routinely used in US elections. In other nations, exit polls are so trusted that they are actually used to call the elections, if there's a delay in the actually tallying. Not in the USA anymore. In recent years, exit polls haven't worked anymore. That's because the elections, run on electronic machines, have been rigged, with no way to accurately and reliably count the votes. That's now the American way.
It used to be that the USA set the gold standard for democracy. That time has passed. Just as the US is no longer the nation whose constitution is the one that's imitated, the US has become a pariah for the world when it comes to voting. Now, crooked elections and the practices that set up and enable them are routine in foreign nations. The US stopped doing exit polls. More and more nations will ban them. Why? Because if it's good enough for the U.S., it's good enough for crooked regimes and authoritarian run states.
I think I know why both parties have failed to pass tough voting technology laws that require fully, reliably recountable paper ballot records. They think they can take advantage of the broken system. it's time that all members of congress take a stand. Pass tough laws that ban e-voting or be seen as co-conspirators in spreading the election theft plague across the planet.
The USA's karmic balance is getting as bet as its balance of trade. Soon, American music and movies won't be able to balance the antipathy and contempt the USA earns for setting suck low standards and providing cover for fascists and corrupt regimes. For shame!!
