What leads you to believe the machines even have to be rigged, if the republicans wanted to rig the election they don't even need the ballots, they
could just say "Oh, look, Bush won again". It's typical, if a republican candidate wins the dems can't possibly understand how someone,
especially that many people, could disagree with them. We all know that disagreeing with a dem means you're flat out wrong. Instead of reading
conspiracy theories you should take the time to better understand the voting process. Think of it this way, New York always goes to the democrats,
but a candidate only needs a majority vote to win the electoral vote of that state. He gets the same amount of points from NY whether 51% of new
yorkers voted for him or 99% percent of new yorkers voted for him. At the end of the election the news agencies take all the popular votes and lump
them together. A majority vote in New York includes more voters than a majority vote in say, Wyoming. Next time the dems should focus more on how
the electoral game is played and stop scaring off the moderate democrate voters and the undecided voters. I was at that massive anti-war rally here
in NYC, I saw an endless sea of "Beat Bush" and "Bush is the devil" signs but I saw few if any "Kerry/Edwards" signs, turns out most of them
were voting for their own unheard of third party candidate.
Look, I could go on forever but the fact of the matter is that dems need to learn to accept the fact that they lost and focus on the next election,
this time find a candidate who doesn't pay us lip service, one who has a running mate old enough to vote. You want to talk about disenfranchised
black voters in Ohio? Well, I'm white, i vote republican, and I live in New York City, it's almost pointless for me to vote since NYC is going to
go blue regardless. Dems, get over yourselves, maybe not everyone agrees with your point of view. You want to talk conspiracy, check out the whole
CBS "Memogate" scandal. If the dems are so convinced of a voting conspiracy then how come they keep trying to play the game, it's like saying the
Poker dealer is cheating but if you keep playing long enough you can beat him.
When the democrats portray their candidate windsurfing, getting a tan, and talking about his hair it puts off more conservative, lower class
democrat voters in heartland states. Footage of Bush on his spare time showed him working on his ranch, clearing folliage, the kind of stuff real
hard working americans can appreciate.
And Bush cheating his way out of military service?? Clinton's dad sent him to England during Vietnam, he then won the election and used it to
pork interns in the oval office. Maybe if he didn't have his hands full with Monica, Clinton would've been able to fix the debacle in Mogadeeshu,
maybe he would'nt have let Azziz's kid be a U.S Marine!
