“How would they get away with it? Well, they begin explaining away how the “pollsters” get it wrong, how pollsters didn’t figure the ‘Bradley Effect’ of lying, racist voters. They’ll tell us the new, young and Black Obamaniacs gave money, went to rallies – but never bothered to vote. But the real reason will never be whispered: They cast votes that just weren’t counted.”
“Will the election be stolen on Tuesday? No, it’s already been stolen. That is, several million voters are doomed to lose their ballots; most won’t even know it. Overwhelmingly, they are the poor, minorities, new voters – Obama voters. Does that mean McCain’s got it in the bag and you’re helpless? Not at all.”
“I know that the Obama campaign is not happy that I bring up the issue of a possible theft of the election. They fear voters will be “discouraged” by the possibility that the election is fixed.”
“Well, frankly, if you’re too bummed out by this recitation of facts and statistics to vote, then maybe you don’t deserve to vote, or to drive or to reproduce. Did Martin Luther King say, “I have a dream … so I’m going back to sleep?'”
Here comes “Mr. Negative” again! No, I know most people who come to Liberaltopia probably read Truthout. And it does look good. But Mr. Palast does provide a lot of interesting information in this essay… and a link to “How to steal your vote back.”
Good luck everyone!
Note: Barack’s grandmother just died. How sad, considering how much he referred to her during the election. If polls and trends mean anything: Barack is ahead and, as much as we all would wish otherwise… the sympathy vote can’t be counted out. The question is; can John McCain and his handlers find someone quick enough who “died” to blunt this unfortunate event, or claim that she didn’t die at all and it’s an election trick? Do I see McCain advisers, shovels in hand, trying for a quick remake of those movies, now retitled Election Day at “Bernie” Barack’s? I put nothing past Republicans these days.
