As a Floridian, I had a front row seat while the 2000 election was stolen from Al Gore. I saw the Democratic governor’s primary altered in 2002 in order to give the primary to Bill McBride over the much more formidable opponent – Janet Reno. As a result, Jeb Bush slid right back into the governor’s mansion for a second term.
I watched again in 2004 as black box voting gave George W Bush his second term and that supposed mandate. We all looked away when former Diebold CEO Wally O’Dell said the following: “I am committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year.”
I am tired of looking the other way.
I am tired of doing nothing about this.
Greg Palast and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. are doing something about it. I have signed on to help do my part.
Palast and Kennedy have compiled a voter’s guide called ‘Steal Back Your Vote.’ There will be videos and articles coming as well. I will be bringing them to you also.

Here is an excerpt from Steal Back Your Vote
Excerpted from the Greg Palast, Rev. Jesse Jackson, and Robert F. Kennedy’s comic book voter guide. See www.StealBackYourVote.org for more.
In 2002, George W. Bush signed the Help America Vote Act.
When a Bush tells you he’s going to “help” you vote – look out!
The result: in the 2004 presidential election, over three million votes – 3,006,080 – were cast and not counted. Like, what the !@#!?
That’s from the official data from an agency created by George Bush called the “Elections Assistance Commission.” When a Bush tells you he’s going to “assist” our elections… (well, you get it).
And not just anyone’s ballots. U.S. government experts reported, for example, that a black voter’s ballot is 900% more likely than a white voter’s ballot to get “lost” in the machine. Bush fired the experts.
Three million voters went missing in ‘04 – but that ain’t nuthin’!
Law professor and voting law expert Robert F. Kennedy Jr. warns that it’s about to get a whole lot worse. Nasty new spores of the “Help” America Vote Act went into effect since the last election that have turned the process into a vicious game of “Chutes and Ladders,” with traps and tricks between you and your vote…
Example: the Republican Secretary of State of Colorado “helped” her state vote by eliminating 19.4% of the voters from the voter rolls. That’s one in five !@#$#@ voters!
Over three million missing ballots – and now the voters themselves are disappearing by the millions. Where the hell did they go?
