Elliminate absentee ballots NOW!

Tonight I escorted my mother to an Election Judge orientation meeting. First off, I was incredibly impressed by the tamper resistance of the touch screen method of voting, as well as the back-up, back-up and third back-up protections these touch screens have!!! Tampering would take a great amount of skill, specialized equipment, and at least 20 minutes of invested time JUST to remove the access panel.... so fraud with the machines themselves would be difficult in the extreme to say the least. furthermore, time-stamped vote tabulation (not allowing votes after the polls have closed-except for the provision of those waiting in line) and two hard copies of the vote totals and a locked hard drive for each polling place.... the measures are inclusive and dang near tamper proof in regards to the machines themselves.
.
What worries me now, is the chance of double- and triple-voting by unprincipled multi-registered voters (ala' Chicago's cemetary vote). The DEMS who seemed to have mastered voter fraud in the 1960 election have found new and more nefarious ways to circumvent the one-person one-vote laws! In the last Presidential election , TENS OF THOUSANDS of Democrats were registered in both New York and Florida.... how many of them voted? And by how many votes would President Bush have won if these duplicitous scoundrels had not chosen to "vote early and often"?
.
The solution as I see it is this:
1) Make election day a National Holiday! I would gladly give up Labor Day, Martin Luther King's Birthday.... Veterans OR Memorial Day (these can be combined into one easily - so not BOTH, by ANY means)... for the chance to give our vote the National Recognition it deserves.
2) A citizen MUST VOTE IN PERSON. "But what about folks traveling/students at college....?" you say. For this provision, ONE and ONLY one voting location would be open from the first Tuesday in October to the first Tuesday in November in each county. This one location would be HIGHLY supervised and treated as any other voting precinct. To vote at this location you must show a travel voucher or student enrollment papers proving that you will be out of town on election day. Those who can't make it home that month would still be allowed to cast a ballot within 6 months before the election , but only in person and AT the Secretary of State's office at the State Capitol.
3) Voter registration would be closed on October 1st of the election year. This gives the State a chance to cross-check names and birthdates between counties and purge all but the most recent registration of a person's name with a matching birthdate.
4) Provisional Ballots and Absentee ballots would be no longer used or permitted.

It is the DUTY of every American to vote, to be registered to vote, and to assure that their registration is made in such a timely manner that their registration will be processed BEFORE election day! We have opened a Pandora's Box of potentially rampant fraud with this early voting crap and the lid must be closed HARD and FAST!

CrystaL Nacht

When one thinks of the Nazi occupation of Poland, the Warsaw Ghetto, and the opression of Hitler's forces, one can not forget the Crystal Nacht, an evening of vandalism, terror, ,and supression. And now, in 2004, we have the Democrat party engagin in their own updated version of terrorizing their opponents through vandalism. Throughout the country, BUSH/CHENEY offices have been broken into , vandalized, and subjected to an ongoing environment of fear and anxiety by the Democrat Party. Now we find that even if GW Bush wins by a large majority, the army of attorneys hired by the KERRY/EDWARDS team will tie up the election for weeks or months with unfounded claims of voter intimidation and "equal protection" lawsuits.
.
Ironically, for all the liberals who try to draw parallels between Bush and Adolph Hitler, they ought to look at their own tactics and demeanors. The recent spat of vandalism is far more comperable to Chrystalnacht than ANYthing the GOP has ever done!

Charles is in the process of moving to North Denver, hense the lack of recent entries. He will return October 29th.

FAHRENHYPE 9/11

It's been awhile since I've posted... sorry ... I'm working on a new website charleslive.com, and that's been taking up some time.

FahrenHYPE 9/11
.
I saw the documentary Fahrenhype 9/11 last night (I've watched Michael Moore's "documentary" twice)... and I was amazed at the underhanded, misleading, biased, and outright dishonest method in which Fahrenheit 9/11 was put together. I was nausiated months ago when I learned how in BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE Michael Moron took two entirely different speeches by Charlton Heston and spliced them together to mislead the audience into thinking they were one and the same... but that was NOTHING compared to how he twisted facts and events in Fahrenheit 9/11 !!!
Examples:
*The "Haves and Have Mores" speech in which President Bush referred to the wealthy as his "base" - IT WAS A JOKE at a fundraiser in New York for underprivileged children and Catholic charities! Much like the self-depreciating humor used at the National Press Club dinners, it was not a genuine comment, but an example of GW Bush using dry humor... Michael Moore twisted the charity event to make it look like a political fundraiser.
*The visit of the Taliban to Texas - was a visit arranged by the CLINTON administration and Gov. Bush never met with them.
*The so-called Unocal pipeline was an abandoned idea of the CLINTON administration that was abandoned before GW Bush ever began campaigning.
The lies of Fahrenheit 9/11 are exposed one after another, after another... these were not simply "slight bias" or "simple mistakes" or "points of view"... these were UNTRUE FACTS knowingly represented as the truth. Fahrenheit 9/11 is one intentional lie after another... as is exposed in the documentary FAHRENHYPE 9/11. Thank GOD we finally have it on celluloid (or DVD plastic, as the case may be) that BUSH WON FLORIDA.. that is the first lie exposed, and thoroughly exposed at that. Unfortunately, the majority of the people who NEED to see this film, and need to rid themselves of their rampant ignorance will be the last ones to put aside their viral HATRED of all things Bush to have an open enough mind to see the FACTS. For the rest... those that want to see the FACTS and the TRUTH, I could not commend a better movie to view!
God Bless America - liberal wienies and Right Wing Nut Jobs alike
