The Elections


Well the election is long past now. I don't want to read a lot of theories about how Bush 'won'. I'm not interested unless someone has proof, but I felt like putting my thinking down. We knew from election 2000, and the run up to 2004 that the Republicans wouldn't stint from anything to win. We knew that there was reason to believe that new electronic voting machines could be used to change the outcome of the elections. We knew that the head of the company Diebolt was going to "do whatever it takes" to deliver Ohio to Bush. Finally we knew that exit polls have historical been very accurate predictors of victory at the polls.

When a cop drawing a salary of $100,000 a year lives a $300,000 a year lifestyle, you may not be able to prove he is on the take, but that doesn't make it unreasonable, conspiratorial, or crazy to suppose he is.
