Republicans derided anyone who expressed doubts about Bushâ€™s victory as nut cases in â€śtinfoil hats,â€ť while the national media, with few exceptions, did little to question the validity of the election. The Washington Post immediately dismissed allegations of fraud as â€śconspiracy theories,â€ť and The New York Times declared that â€śthere is no evidence of vote theft or errors on a large scale.â€ť But despite the media blackout, indications continued to emerge that something deeply troubling had taken place in 2004.
Nearly half of the 6 million American voters living abroad never received their ballots â€“ or received them too late to vote â€“ after the Pentagon unaccountably shut down a state-of-the-art Web site used to file overseas registrations. A consulting firm called Sproul & Associates, which was hired by the Republican National Committee to register voters in six battleground states, was discovered shredding Democratic registrations. In New Mexico, which was decided by 5,988 votes, malfunctioning machines mysteriously failed to properly register a presidential vote on more than 20,000 ballots. Nationwide, according to the federal commission charged with implementing election reforms, as many as 1 million ballots were spoiled by faulty voting equipment â€“ roughly one for every 100 cast.
The reports were especially disturbing in Ohio, the critical battleground state that clinched Bushâ€™s victory in the Electoral College. Officials there purged tens of thousands of eligible voters from the rolls, neglected to process registration cards generated by Democratic voter drives, shortchanged Democratic precincts when they allocated voting machines and illegally derailed a recount that could have given Kerry the presidency. A precinct in an evangelical church in Miami County recorded an impossibly high turnout of ninety-eight percent, while a polling place in inner-city Cleveland recorded an equally impossible turnout of only seven percent. In Warren County, GOP election officials even invented a nonexistent terrorist threat to bar the media from monitoring the official vote count.

Reports, another word for hersay? If there is proof, then bring it forward. Are you aware of the reports of the number of dead voters on the rolls in large cities run by democrats who are still voting??
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."

What's your point? We can't rewrite history, but aren't you concerned about the fraud? Or are you only concerned about the Democratic fraud? Are you concerned that political parties may make concerted efforts and target an individual state? Or do you like the corruption, as long as your guy gets in? What if there is corruption, does it concern you? It sounds like it only concerns you if it's in your interest. I think if we can't enforce 99.9% honest elections, then democracy fails, and that's an awfully serious problem ... but maybe not to you.
