When you go to the link there are 3 inportant petitions listed, HR550, one supporting another whistle blower in a computer-fradulent election matter and one concerning the war in Iraq. If we do not restore our democracy, I have very little hope for our situation in this country to improve. I hold little hope for our world as well.
On December 6th, 2004 , The BRAD BLOG (www.bradblog.com) published a sworn affidavit by Florida software programmer Clint Curtis. In his affidavit and videotaped sworn testimony presented before members of the U.S. House Judiciary committee, Curtis claims to have been asked by U.S. Congressman Tom Feeney (R-FL) to design a "vote-rigging software prototype". This request took place in October 2000 during a meeting at Yang Enterprises, Inc. (YEI), a computer consulting firm in Oviedo, Florida. http://www.bradblog.com/ClintCurtisSummary.htm
Curtis, a life-long Republican up until then....
Should we be funding the undermining of democracy in Mexico? Please consider what it will take for our country to restore democracy.
Choice Point was used in Mexico apparently much like it was used in Florida. WE paid for that with OUR tax dollars!
Negative drop offs, supposedly blank and discarded ballots overwhelmingly from poor areas of course. The most essential coponent for undermining a democracy, now-a-days is NOT having a VERIFIABLE election, machines with no paper trail,= no accountability.
Our democracy should count, and we shouldn't be paying to subvert democracy in other countries. Well at least we didn't have the CIA kill the other candidate.
Do you think it's right to pretend that our soldiers are dying for democracy, and then destroy it here at home?
How sad, just like in 2004 overseas newspapers and media, will cover this story but ours likely will not touch it.
