Republican Party Purchases State of California


From the Sac Bee:
Diebold voting machines OK'd, Secretary of state certifies firm after delays and glitches.

Great. That means every vote in California will be counted as a repubican vote, regardless who the vote was actually for. All of us in California just had our votes stolen.

this saddens me greatly.

BTW, I love that photo so much, I had to take it and add it on my side content.
Hope you don't mind!

Maybe it is time to move towards absentee paper ballots- make a photocopy, and keep your proof. Then encourage everyone else to do the same.

Diebold - I love the name of the company. It says a lot: Die Bold. Indeed, they are.

Shea someone on your blog recently said its time for another tea party. I would love to have one. I can get angry. I can throw and break stuff. I want change.

Mike V: Me, too. By the way, I get the pictures here (scroll down a bit).

Michael the tubthumper: There's more pix where that came from!

Ken G: It would be great if the state, or at least a majority of votors, could be mobilized to do that.

Windspike: The name kind of implies, "die trying..."

Mike of the North: That scary phrase, "As California goes, so goes the nation."

Chickenhawk: Thanks, by the way, for being so forgiving/understanding of my rant over at Liberal Thought. It's subjects like this that inspire my angst.
