Lever voting machines, trusting the outcome - those were the days
When I heard that CT still had lever machines I knew that I didn't have to worry about election vote counting fraud - I grew up on those babies and I do trust them - it was such a pleasure. Too bad it won't be like that in November.

Now it turns out that the exit polls matched the results - STUNNED I say STUNNED. Someone on Sam Sedar's show said last night said exit polls are not used to determine the results - but to find out why people voted the way they did - well my friends that is BS - exit polls have been accurately predicting elections here and around the world for years - that is until 2004 - we need exit polling or parallel elections in order to monitor the activity of the cheaters

All that said WAY TO GO CT - great voting machines and GREAT VOTERS!!!! Too bad Holy Joe has no respect for your decision.

1. Sniff, Sniff, I want the old lever machines back
I used to feel real empowered pulling the lever and the curtain rolling back, back then I had
a vote, now all I have is a chance to make a fool of myself.

6. Okay, there was probably some padded votes
somewhere, probably with absentee ballots, but at least it reflected the majority opinion,
I believe Kerry beat Bush probably 51% to 47% and it was manipulated into a win.

2. Exit polls don't work in elections with computer voting.

They also don't work in elections featuring a member of the Bush Crime Family.

Jeez! Everybody knows that.

Move on. There's no problem here.

3. I know.
I'm sad and angry that they will be replaced, either in November or in time for '08. Either way, ICK.
