US election already rigged
Manuel Valenzuela As much as America and the world wish to believe Florida will not be rigged with electoral fraud this November, the sad truth is that all the mechanisms needed to steal the state in favor of George Bush are already firmly entrenched. This is thanks to Jeb Bush — Governor of Florida, manipulator of mandates, corrupt fraudster, decimator of democracy, brother of the president, and the Republican Party, which in essence controls the logistics of and the keys to running the election. Florida has already declared tens of thousands of voters, mostly black and Democratic, ineligible. Many more voters, of all creeds and colors, will be disenfranchised on election day, be it through intimidation, coercion, government intervention, criminal negligence, corruption and fraud, and, of course, through electronic voting machines, most of which are owned by staunch Republican supporters. Thus, it is fair to say that the election scheduled for November is already stolen, the purging of votes already assured, the swindling of the 2004 Presidential election has become, for all intents and purposes, an absolute inevitability. Already, throughout the nation, instances of Republican Party meddling with electoral procedures and citizens' right to vote have surfaced, from Florida to Nevada to Oregon to Ohio and everywhere in between, trying desperately to garner any advantage in any of a dozen states deemed as swing states, where the outcome will be so close that 10,000 votes could mean the difference between winning electoral votes and losing the presidency. With so much at stake, and with American democracy a mirage of its former self, Republican minions and vultures are hard at work, once more disenfranchising thousands from an election that will decide the future destiny of the entire planet. After all, absolute power corrupts absolutely and addiction to the Almighty Dollar makes demons of already dishonorable miscreants.
