Dear OpEdNews,

In your documentary, I was astounded by the fact that the state of Florida does not allow recounts after votes are recorded by DRE machines. If I am not mistaken, this is the same law that was just passed in Ohio with the help of Dictator of State, J. Kenneth Blackwell. Interesting that this man also went to Florida in 2000 to help deliver the vote to Bush.

To quote John Gideon of, "We are headed for a major Train Wreck in November". The bloggers are right on track as far as the facts about Election Fraud. We share information about the new DRE's and what a scam this is going to be on the American voters. Polls show that 98% don't trust the new DRE voting machines.

Proprietary Software of voting machine vendors must be open to public scrutiny. This is our vote. Nobody wants to pirate software from Diebold, ES&S, or Sequoia.. Who would steal something that doesn't work? Anyone can see that these systems are flawed, just tune in to the results from various states, . Already, reports are streaming in that training precinct workers in time for the November election is an effort in futility. Instituting the new DRE voting machines on a nation (en-mass) is like testing a new missile armed with a deadly warhead.

I only hope that we can continue to reach people like Lou Dobbs, Keith Olberman and the new progressive radio talk shows with the facts on Election Fraud.

For 35 years prior to 2004, I voted the Republican ticket. Now, wondering at what point I turned my brain off, I am reminded of a dream that many of us have at times, where you detect eminent danger to you or a loved one. I open my mouth to warn them, and nothing comes out. So I think to myself, how can I tell people about the Train Wreck?

I would be a fool to cast a ballot with the knowledge my vote could be "switched" to the opposition. In my state 52 % of us are now registered as Unaffiliated. My only choice is to get involved in the election process. More first hand knowledge may renew my confidence in elections.

I sincerely thank you for your efforts.
