Think the 2004 Election Wasn't Rigged? Monday, September 26, 2005

Check out Project Censored

It points out a lot of irregularities. It's part of the cynics' handbook.

Wow. there's a whole underground of people who distrust an inherently untraceable method of voting, nicht wahr?

The Feeezer Box post was interesting. As Mark Twain said, "There are Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics". I decided to use my rather rusty math skills on the numbers from the exit polls, just to see what was really happening. I've used the information from the article, which may be corrupted, but I recall the numbers from the night being pretty much on par and have no real reason to doubt the base numbers.

As I'd sent to a few folks, I've tried some number crunching on some of these percentages ect. On the exit polls and assuming my math wasn't off, the only way some of those numbers make sense is if the folks doing the exit polls revised and shifted numbers from Kerry to Bush from the original poll numbers. For example, at least 16 of the female voters would have had to come back to the pollsters and said. "Oops, I'm sorry, I said I Voted for Kerry? I meant to say I voted for Bush". The difference in additional people polled COULD NOT adjust the percentage of votes per candidates, even if EVERY SINGLE VOTER had voted for Bush. This was from the Ohio results. I hadn't tried the numbers from Florida, but just cursury examination looks as bad if not worse. The Idea of the Voting machines being 'fixed' was presented from the beging, but our Dim-ocrats seemed to 'Dim' to make an issue of it.

Maybe they 'Dim's' will get a clue and start working with the other 'minority' parties, because it is rapidly moving in that direction.

And for those folks who believed their votes didn't count.. sadly, it may not have been counted after all.

Alas, i lack the maths to truly analyze the story. Which might be what any would-be vote riggers count upon.......

But from talking this story around, i think the reason it has no 'legs' is simply that it's too big, too horrible. No one can allow themselves to consider it true. Most people, aside from those who have $5000 or $50,000 to drop at a Party fundraiser, feel that they have any say in government at all, save once every few years at the polls. If those are crocked, then you are a proud American serf, working in the nobleman's fields.

The only people i have found who can consider that as a possibility are functionally to clinically paranoid. And so, the story goes nowhere.
