In so many ways,Chavez is going right along with the playbook.
The Dems are too close to Hugo Chavez.
It is long past time to deny visas to all Venezuelan passport holders.
Any Venezuelans who wanted out of that Communist hellhole have left already.
Next, diplomatic ties should be broken and their embassage kicked out. They should not even be granted visas to attend the UN.
Lock them out.
Incredible if true.
Maybe we shouldn't have just laughed at all the DUmmies who whined about Diebold fixing elections. We should have taken that as a sign that the LEFT is going to try to "fix" the machines to fix the elections. Leftists are dirty, filthy lying, thieving, bastards. The world would be better off without them.
...and you wondered why Carter and Sheehan thought this guy was OK.
According to Alvaro Vargas Llosa:
6. In December, 2004, a "gag law" was imposed making it easy to prosecute journalists. Chavez continually threatens to withdraw TV and radio licenses--the reason why there are no opinion programs on network TV.(My note; eerie resemblance to McCain-Feingold)
Another of his frauds involves the electoral system. Chavez has manipulated the voter registration rolls, adding two million phantom voters, including 30,000 who are 100 years old and citizens names "Superman."
The Maisanta database includes every single registered voter in the country. I am still trying to get the latest version, the one I obtained is from last year, but the point is the same. It is likely the newest version represents simply a deeper and more widespread violation of our rights.
From this, we can have: his address, whether he signed or not to recall Chavez, his date of birth, address (sometimes with telephone), as well as the voting center that he uses. Additionally, he is "rated" as whether he is a good voter or not, based on his recent activity as a voter. Finally, the software is cross-referenced with whether the voter is a member of two of the Government's social missions, Mision Ribas, the program to graduate people from high school in a short time, and Vuelvan Caras, a "scholarship" by which the Government gives people a monthly stipend to participate in projects to work against poverty and social exclusion
You may wonder how I knew the ID number of the Prosecutor General? Easy, the software has a very cumbersome sequential search tool that finds all of the Isaias Rodriguez' of the country, if by chance you did not know his ID number.
The software comes in a CD; you install it (3 Gbytes) and are ready to go. You don't know anyone that has it? Easy go to Plaza Bolivar in downtown Caracas and for Bs. 3,000 or 4,000 you have your own copy. (The Chavistas distributed over 35,000 of them last year for the recall vote and the regional elections).
This window has lots of information to discriminate, harass, classify and label people near wher you live. You have the ID number, age, whether the person signed petitions against the opposition, against Chavez, whether the person is rated as "opposition", abstainer and in columns not shown, whether the person signed or not against Chavez and if his or her signature were rejected or not. Then in the buttons below, you can print, search, filter according to categories or simply click on the button labeled "patriots". Press that and you only see the true "Aryans" loyal to the process, those that signed against the opposition. These are your revolutionary, fascist buddies, ready to die or whatever for the revolution. In fact, if they are not on your side but they participate in any of the misiones, you can threaten them with removal of their meager perks, if they don't want to follow orders. Cute, immoral and perverse, no?
This is unbelievably bad...the enemies of the state are controlling the machines!
Which candidates will the Smartmatic's Sequoia Voting Systems machines need to elect in order to bring the U.S. to its knees?
And those 17 states are...??????
Probably not historic even if Chavez wins, but it does point out that the Ds are after power, as are the enviros and the anti-wars, and every other interest group nobody is interested in.
More likely Chavez is in this to secure his OWN elections rather than to influence US ones.
This is beyond funny. "Don't worry... it's just the part that transmits the totals to the central tabulator..."
just another reason not to trust these voting machines. MD Governor Bob Ehrlich has been pleading with people to vote via absentee ballot because the MD systems have so many flaws
Other than going against the "we've got to know the winner the moment the polls close" tide, can someone please explain just what in Sam Hill is wrong with hand-counted paper ballots?
