Time for the Tinfoil Hat

I'm not a conspiracy theorist by any means, and I'm too grounded in reality to really believe what the author of this list is implying, but it's still interesting in a Fahrenheit 9/11 kind of way, and you have to admit that there are some serious ethical issues with the electronic voting machines and the companies that manufactured them for the last election.

Even more disturbing is how little you hear about it on the news or read about it on the interent. They always talk about a liberal bias in the media but then stories like this get quashed and somehow Bush gets voted as Time Magazine's Man of the Year. So was Hitler, I guess, but seriously. Gimme a break. People just assume that if the American news media doesn't cover a story, then there is no merit to the story in the first place, which is a really scary way to think.

Anyway, read these 20 Amazing Facts About Voting in the USA so that at least some of us can consider ourselves properly informed.

That no paper trail thing really freaks me out.

I don't know why California was worried...dem chimpanzees are learnt good.

The touch-screen info *was* very suspicious. No paper trail? That's never good.

Diebold is also the #1 maker of ATM's. Very crooked business.

I seriously depressed everyone at work by showing this post to them. Thanks for the well researched link!

Great blog, btw.

I found most of it informative except for:

19. The governor of the state of Florida, Jeb Bush, is the President's brother.

A little slow on the uptake now aren't we?
