Key to Election Protection

(Wash. DC)  There's one major obstacle blocking a theft of the 2008 presidential election.  It's highly significant and challenges even the most devious minds.   That obstacle is "net new" Democratic primary voters in 2008.  "Net new" Democratic primary voters represent the difference between primary turnout in 2004 and 2008.  More on that in a moment.

If you think that 2000 and 2004 were free and fair elections and that the idea of election fraud is specious, that's fine.  You might want to review some of the following.

Al Gore won the 2000 election by over 500,000 votes.  He did not become the president and was denied a recount by the court that made Bush the president.   Stolen election. Case closed.

2004 was not a "red versus blue" election and the winner is still in the U.S. Senate.  The red segment of the total vote (the rural U.S.) was down from 23% of the vote in 2000 to 16% in 2004, with two million less Bush votes, in actual terms, in 2004.  Bush "won" 2004 through a fictitious increase in "big city" voting ("big cities" are defined in the exit polls as those with greater than 500,000 population).

Bush lost rural ("red") votes, his base, yet won the election.  At the same time, we're asked to believe that there was a 66% increase in "big city" turnout in 2004, with Bush doubling his vote total there compared to 2000.  This is absurd (the real figure is closer to a 13% to 15% turnout increase for "big cities" according to actual results).  But that 66% "big city" turnout increase is what the exit pollsters, sponsored by the major media consortium, had to do to make Bush's reported vote count consistent with the final exit poll reported the day after the election. (See Election 2004:  The Urban Legend and Notes from the Underground)

The same people who stole those two elections just took $840 billion of your money and are giving it to their Wall Street donors.  They're the same people who started a war with Iraq based on documented lies and who continued it for five years, with a combined death toll of over one million Iraqi civilians and thousands of U.S. soldiers.  They are the people who won't correct the lie and insist on more of the same.  These people resolutely ignore the looming climate changes to the planet that forecast death to tens of millions and the likelihood of multiple scenes like those after Hurricane Katrina.

Here's the problem for the election thieves.  Their strategies all rely on keeping people from registering, keeping those registered away from the polls, and the magic of electronic voting and tabulation.  It won't work this time.  But first, here's a quick look at the strategies in place.
