Houston we have a problem.
The exit polls contradict the results in many States.
In how many and by how much the results are out of line will have to wait until the numbers for the extensive exit poll conducted by a consortium of six news organisations, including all major US broadcasters.
Television networks proceed cautiously with rebuilt exit polling system:
Although no major problems in the new systems were reported, the early exit polls caused concern.
When the 2004 results are completely known, the networks will look at whether this year’s exit polls overestimated Democratic vote counts, said Bill Wheatley, NBC News vice president….Those early numbers looked so positive for Kerry that Fox News Channel analyst Jim Pinkerton, at 3:30 p.m. EST, said, “I think it looks good for angry Democrats.”
I believe that the mandate of the Bush team was to keep things close enough that they would be able to gerrymander the election without getting caught out.
At this point, they have not succeeded as John F. Kerry has not conceded the election and I don’t believe he will until there is a clean bill of health for all the counts.
All the Democrats need to contest this election is a clear demonstration in even one state of foul play with the electronic voting machines or of discarded or incinerated ballots or of partisan ballot counts or of extensive disqualification of eligible voters.
Kerry has conceded. The democrats have not bothered to dispute the electronic vote. I maintain my position that the election results were doctored where necessary – by a small margin two to three percent.
Paper votes are difficult enough to count reliably, without attempting to rely upon computers. I work with computers every day – and most others like me who do – would never trust them with the voting mechanism of the state.
With Republicans in control of two of the three arms of political power and in a position to bring the courts into line, I expect this will be the last election where there is much hope of a free vote. The electronic voting machines will be so thoroughly entrenched by 2008 that the Republicans will be literally unbeatable.
The consequences ahead for America and the world from this failed attempt to wrest power from the insane military regime in the United States could not be more grave.
We are poised now in June 1914 in Europe or February 1917 in Russia or February 1933 in Germany.
The world is already in flames. Many in the American electorate have chosen to throw on gasoline.
The final sliver was stolen. The Republic is has come to an end, Empire has begun.
It ended badly for the Romans, it ended badly for the British, it will end very badly for the Americans as well. In the meantime, the pain to the rest of the world will be immeasurable.
