Summary of Super Tuesday

People in Ohio have sent in hundreds of thousands of absentee voter ballots in order to prevent Diebold from globally managing the elections systematically for rebuplicans.

Early voting has revealed that these machines have a nasty habit of leaning to the right, even when a pundit votes straight down the left. This has lead me to coin a phrase "Red Balling" . You dont think that Diebold is capable of red-balling the electorate? Link away:

The touch-screen gizmo's seem strangely attracted to Republican candidates. One voter needed assistance from an election official, and even then, needed three tries to convince the machine that he wanted to vote for Democrat Jim Davis in the gubernatorial race, not his Republican opponent Charlie Crist.

"He touched the screen for gubernatorial candidate Jim Davis, a Democrat, but the review screen repeatedly registered the Republican, Charlie Crist."

Joan Marek, 60, a Democrat from Hollywood, was also stunned to see Charlie Crist on her ballot review page after voting on Thursday. "Am I on the voting screen again?" she wondered. "Well, this is too weird."

Well, even though NBC is projecting that Republican Charlie Crist will win the Florida governor race the Democrats have taken over the hose for the first time in 12 years.

The rebups it seems will keep the senate, but despite help from Diebold, the house belongs to the Democrats for the first time in 12 years. Hopefully this will stem the tide of lost liberties from flowing into nonexistence.

It is reassuring that it only took:

Absolute proof of severe moral corruption http://tinyurl.com/mophn

Absolute proof of lobbying corruption http://tinyurl.com/7kf45

Absolute proof of campaign funds corruption http://tinyurl.com/bu4wy

Absolute proof of the inability to lead an army http://tinyurl.com/yn7584

Absolute proof of the inability to be fiscally responsible http://tinyurl.com/ybrg5k

Absolute proof of their disdain for the constitution http://tinyurl.com/9d8fw

Absolute proof of them spying on us for political motives http://tinyurl.com/yfm7md

I could go on, but I am getting more depressed with each link added. I am astounded that this is not enough for the voters to give the senate to the democrats, but at least we have the House. I will take solace in that much, and hope for more in the future.

Democrats suck, but they are a damn sight better than what I have seen happening with our leadership the last 6 years.

Thanks for listing some of the reasons we needed to put in a countervailling force in Washington. Our consitution was devised with the idea that power in the Executive needed to be checked by a strong Legistlature and of course a Judicial system that is supposed to be non partisan.

Another reason is their gutting all the agencies that are supposed to protect the public from things like monopoly powers. The Food and Drug Administration, the Federal Communication Commission,
The Justice Department, the Environmental Protection Agency, and more.
