Vigilance Needed Now More Than Ever

Lest we forget, exit polls forecast an overwhelming victory for John Kerry. We all know how that went. George W. Bush still resides in the White House, we’re still flushing billions down the toilet in Iraq and the economy is in a downward spiral that may be irreparable.

Now polls are telling us that Barack Obama is doing extraordinarily well against Bush 3.0, John McPalin. That’s nice and all, but let’s not make the same mistakes we always make.

We should never forget how well entrenched the Republican election fraud machine really is. Check out this video of electronic vote flipping during this year’s early voting West Virginia. Consider how Sequoia Voting Systems, which was neck-deep in the 2000 Florida election debacle, recently “forgot” to send out 11,000 vote-by-mail ballots in overwhelmingly Democratic Denver, CO. Ponder the 50,000 voters “accidentally” scrubbed from Georgia’s voter rolls.

Then consider the sort of people Obama is up against. We’ve got paid McCain campaign worker and sociopathic race-baiting liar Ashley Todd. We’ve got angry, racist lunatics showing up at McCain/Palin rallies in droves. You have the delightful folks who left the severed deer head in the parking lot of Obama’s campain headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the Christian right’s Berchtesgaden. Feast your eyes on the hateful scum that showed up at a recent McCain rally in Denver. Especially charming is the young girl at the beginning of the clip exhibiting monkey mannerisms for the camera.

Such piggishness, thuggery and ham-fisted election fraud isn’t going to dry up and blow away just because it’s end of Bush’s second term. Let’s keep working. Let’s help out on election day. Keep a video camera, tape recorder or even a pad and pencil handy to record any shenanigans you see at the polls. I wish it weren’t so, but the odds of needing an extensive paper trail are pretty damn good this time around.

I suggest keeping an extra close eye on Pennsylvania. Polls currently have Obama leading in that state with nine to thirteen point margins. However, the McCain campaign has made snatching victory from the jaws of defeat in Pennsylvania the cornerstone of its strategy. We can expect tons of chicanery there. Ashley Todd was only the beginning.
