Was the 2004 Election Stolen?
Robert Kennedy, Jr's. lengthy article about the 2004 election is online at Rolling Stone. It is a must read. The online article has a number of "web only" citations; it is backed up with facts. And the first fact is this:
Republicans prevented more than 350,000 voters in Ohio from casting ballots or having their votes counted -- enough to have put John Kerry in the White House. BY ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR. (my emphasis).
The number of registered voters who were disenfranchised in Ohio alone is staggering, but Kennedy's article describes massive irregularities that the MSM ignored. Anomolies are one thing, but we experienced widespread fraud that benefited Bush and harmed Kerry.
What will prevent this administration from declaring an end to elections? Don't tell me our Constitution -- this administration has displayed blatant disregard for our Constitution; our laws mean nothing. Our phone records are monitered. Racial profiling is at a high level. How far will we slide down the slippery slope toward dictatorship?
Just say "no" takes on an altogether different weight when stacked up against these abuses of power.
