Since the most important election of our lives is only 840 hours away, I'll be posting some things to consider or support from time to time. Today we offer videos interviewing GOP Cyber security expert Stephen Spoonamore who explicitly states "the GOP wanted e-voting to steal elections but now foreign governments will be hacking and the winner will be determined by the best hackers. He says that if the GOP wins the hacking competition, McCain will win 51.2 percent with three electoral votes over Obama, and it will be a stolen election." If you're interested, read on.
For your consideration, from the very respectable site Velvet Revolution, New Spoonamore Interview - E-voting Machines are a National Security Threat. As the site says, "Spoon makes valid points about the people who have been implicated in much of the election thefts such as, 'they are religious extremists.' He names those who know about stolen elections and he insists that the only way to protect this election is with paper ballots, hand counted."
Please check it out and stay on top of who's counting the votes where you live, what kind of machines are in use, and who's monitoring potential voter disenfranchisement. Please take the time to become informed about what's going on in this most important part of the election process. There are also other sites on the right hand links under "Monitoring Voting Irregularities" where you can stay informed about what's happening in your state and nationally.
The best way to thwart those who would cook the books is to vote absentee in early voting. These are sealed and hand counted after election day. This is one way to ensure to some degree that your vote will be counted as you cast it, and not subject to machine hacking.
This is not "partisan politics," but the very foundation of democracy. When the vote of the people no longer matters as to who wins elections, then we've become a dictatorship. This is the election where either we get an honest vote or we get another fraudulent government run by gray men in the shadows.
