the stolen election and the media

While we are all picking up the pieces and trying to plan our attact, I think there are 2 huge systems we need to target. 1) OUR VOTING SYSTEM. This election was stolen. The fact that every state/district/county has different ways of voting, different procedures and different ways of dealing with registration and such is being taken advantage of and it needs to change. We need the SAME voting machines all over the country. We need the same registration guidelines everywhere. We need non-US/UN officials making sure everything works out. This is really ridiculous already. Why couldn't we fight it this time? Because black blox voting in Florida and Ohio meant their weren't any votes to count let alone recount. And I wonder how Rove knew last week they would "win" by 52% of the vote. 2) THE CORPORATE MEDIA. Why aren't you hearing anything in the news about widespread voter fraud? Why is no one in the news questioning the how the visibly high voter turn out didn't actually produce a very large number of votes? Why are the irregularities in democratic and minority districts not being questioned? Not to mention the fact that the media has been behind Bush every step of the way since 9/12/01. Misinformation and a lack of real journalism means that the media is working for them and not for us. So here are 2 alternative media links for you to enjoy: IndyMedia AlterNet
