Nice to know enemy of America, Hugo Chavez is behind the software of many voting machines... tCKTTCxcnenqAsQ

Smartmatic was a little-known firm with no experience in voting technology before it was chosen by the Venezuelan authorities to replace the country’s elections machinery ahead of a contentious referendum that confirmed Mr. Chávez as president in August 2004.

Seven months before that voting contract was awarded, a Venezuelan government financing agency invested more than $200,000 into a smaller technology company, owned by some of the same people as Smartmatic, that joined with Smartmatic as a minor partner in the bid.

In return, the government agency was given a 28 percent stake in the smaller company and a seat on its board, which was occupied by a senior government official who had previously advised Mr. Chávez on elections technology. But Venezuelan officials later insisted that the money was merely a small-business loan and that it was repaid before the referendum.

With a windfall of some $120 million from its first three contracts with Venezuela, Smartmatic then bought the much larger and more established Sequoia Voting Systems, which now has voting equipment installed in 17 states and the District of Columbia...

He, he, even our own government has lost track of the business deal of the corporate power on our nation.

What can I say anything to make a buck even if it means doing business with dictatorships and enemies of the nation.

I find the whole thing hilarious.

Very soon we will be finding out that NK and Kim owns something here in the US also

Oops is called Globalization
I get it now.

Many of you like to complain about the Bush administration out of both sides of your mouths.

Bush and his minions are the masterminds of a global takeover, OR Bush and his minions are so stupid that they don't do anything about the sale of a voting machine company to Bush's worst enemy (Chavez)in the Western Hemisphere? A sale that could help guarantee through sotware election fraud the defeat of his own party.

It can't be both answers. So which is it?

BTW, I supported Bush twice, but my vote is on the too stupid answer.
