I have been waiting for almost 15 years for democrats to tackle this issue.
I underestimated the power of corporations, banks, military and the game that the parties played out in the media while agreeing on the fundamentals and not questioning elections because that is how they claimed that they were legitimate. Why raise an issue that shakes up the establishment?
Maybe now there will be some movement toward getting us off the bottom election systems of the 41 so called democracies in the world.
Book Review: Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman, THE STRIP & FLIP SELECTION OF 2016: Five Jim Crows & Electronic Election Theft
Just one example from the review
After 200 years, US forces have acquired massive training in how to rig elections, including corruption by means of poll books and easily rigged voting machines. The same skills have been effectively applied to the “Drug War at home.”
After 200 years, the CIA brought another skill home to roost: “the use of electronics to overturn elections”–
“Under Ronald Reagan, it became available for use in elections here at home. In 1988, former CIA director George H.W. Bush became the first to benefit.” But before this crucial point, which essentially begins the era of modern election corruption in the US, many steps–bullet points–were entailed, including the establishment of the Federal Election Commission, the Election Center, and any number of warnings from experts on the permeability and corruptibility of electronic voting systems. When Bush ran for president in 1988, in the New Hampshire primary, the first large-scale use of electronic voting machines, “the former CIA Director trailed Bob Dole by eight points in polls taken on Election Day. But when the votes were electronically tallied, Bush beat Dole by nine points. Such a 17-point turn-around qualifies among mainstream election statistical analysts as a ‘virtual statistical impossibility.’”
