Are our elections fair?

So?  What has happened since 2000?  I just interviewed Stephen Freeman, author of Was the 2004 Presidential Election Stolen?  Well it appears that there is overwhelming evidence that the election was stolen.  Election wasn’t stolen any one matter but instead in multiple different manners.  This occurred not just in one state, Ohio, but several states.  How many votes?  Maybe as many as 9 million votes were stolen.  If this is true, what have we done to improve the system since 2004?  Really, what major changes have been put in place since the year 2000?

Fixing our election system should be a major priority of progressive websites like DailyKos, FireDogLake, Think Progress, Huffington Post and Crooks and Liars. If we don’t fix the crooked system then what’s the point of all this discussion? What’s the point in making campaign contributions and stuffing envelopes for your favorite candidate? If the election is going to be stolen, what’s the point? 

Did you know that the company that was formed by the consortium of the television networks to produce accurate polling has now been disbanded? The television networks are not going to report exit polls anymore. At least this is what has been reported. The major networks have abdicated their responsibility. Someone needs to pick up the ball and run with it. Stephen Freeman and his colleagues are going to try to do exit polling but he’s going to need help. He’s going to need a sophisticated nationwide network. One that can be provided by national progressive bloggers.

It’s just my opinion. Maybe, I should move to Canada. 🙂

  1. I’ll put together a post with appropriate links. It is funny with news being de-centralized many GREAT news items get lost in the shuffle.

  2. The article that you linked to raises significant questions about the “evidence.” I think more than exit poll discrepancies and speculative conjectures are needed to prove a conspiracy.
