I regret I don’t have any references from the washington times. Or the Hare-Krishna Daily News. I do have these however…
an awful lot of those links are broken
i wish to know if there is substances to those claims
I remember most of those “claims” were news stories that came out over the period and after the the last election for Bush, and that they are factual based stories. Bush stole that last election, just as he did the first one.
I posted a ton of reports and information at the time of the election HERE if you are interested.
thanks a lot,i wasn’t doubting the authenticity of those claims,i reposted them on another board and i wanted to give more credibility than broken links.
i wonder why the bro bush haven’t yet discussed this topic…oh wait,no i don’t…
Perhaps I should buy Diebold stock when I get back to the States?

You would only know that if you had paper receipts for votes that were made. As you don’t, then you have no proof that we are talking out of our hats. As the evidence weighs in favor of there indeed being a conspiracy, then I would be a little more open minded TainanCowboy. The question of vote rigging has already been heard in court and an expert in the field of programming has confirmed that there is a back door to the voting sytems.
Here is a good story on the subject. Very current news.
And anyone interested in voting machines should check out bradblog.com
I’m of the opinion that I can’t believe myability to accept the fact that most people simply don’t seem to care about voting machines. I’ll bet though, if you surveyed 12-year-olds about what issues are important, voting machines would be a starter.
I ramble. Here’s the link:
There is also another thread here on Forumosa.
It’s been said, the USA along with Malaysia and Singapore practises fake democracies.
And one should always consider [b]who[/b] is making such a ridiculous statement as that…and why?
The argument on the US has been that there are only two political parties that rules America although there were other contending parties which to many are just for show.

1st - the USA is not a democracy…it is a ‘Representative Republic.’ There is a vast difference.
2nd - there are many different ‘political parties’ in the USA. Started to reflect the views and desires of their originators. Each one is free, unless they blatantly advocate illegal activities (and even here there is some legal and “Constitutional” leeway granted), to express and make public their desires. If they get the needed votes, they can be elected to the positions they run for.
Heck, there have been Socialists and Communists elected to hold pretty high offices in some cities and states.
While the political scene has been the domain of the Republican and the Democratic political parties fr most of its history, within these parties there is a great diversity of thought and opinion which reflect the diversity of opinion in the USA. This is what is meant by ‘Representative Republic.’
Always keep in mind that the USA is a big place. What you see and hear on the news and in internet chatrooms does not neccesarily reflect the view of a great many people.
Of course those people will respond by telling you how dumb or how out of touch most of the USA is…but then thats a “stereotype”…and they will also tell you how wrong it is to use stereotypes…Pretty funny, huh?
“Representative Republic”. That surely is a new thing to me
I don’t know how well the two political parties reflects public opinions but to most people in this region, America is just not diverse enough.
