How To Win a Rigged Election


Get pissed. You have to. Otherwise, you're immobilized by depression, and then we lose.

If they can't convince you there's nothing to see behind the curtain, then they'll hope you'll assume you're powerless to change the pre-ordained outcome. Good enough.

Because the Republicans are always the beneficiaries of low voter turnout, the Republican strategy this election is to smear John Kerry to the point where undecided voters are too demoralized with both parties to make it to the polls.

But it doesn't stop there. Oh no. Simple smear and sleaze aren't enough. They have to cheat to gain the upper hand. The following articles are only the tip of the iceberg of a well-documented threat to our democracy generally ignored by the mass media:

Bob Herbert From The Times Reported The Following Last Week:


The big story out of Florida over the weekend was the tragic devastation caused by Hurricane Charley. But there's another story from Florida that deserves our attention.

State police officers have gone into the homes of elderly black voters in Orlando and interrogated them as part of an odd "investigation" that has frightened many voters, intimidated elderly volunteers and thrown a chill over efforts to get out the black vote in November.

The officers, from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which reports to Gov. Jeb Bush, say they are investigating allegations of voter fraud that came up during the Orlando mayoral election in March.

Officials refused to discuss details of the investigation, other than to say that absentee ballots are involved. They said they had no idea when the investigation might end, and acknowledged that it may continue right through the presidential election.

Did it make your paper? Had you read about it in the Star-Tribune? Why isn't it big news that the state presided over by the brother of the president has police officers being investigated for shaking down elderly black voters?

One thing is for sure: They won't report anything negative about the president on CBS before the election. Dan Rather's not going to take the heat.

Consider this from Alan Elsner of Reuters:

Millions of other votes in the 2000 presidential election were lost due to clerical and administrative errors while civil rights organizations have cataloged numerous tactics aimed at suppressing black voter turnout. Polls consistently find that black Americans overwhelmingly vote for Democrats.

"There are individuals and officials who are actively trying to stop people from voting who they think will vote against their party and that nearly always means stopping black people from voting Democratic," said Mary Frances Berry, head of the U.S. Commission on Human Rights.

Vicky Beasley, a field officer for People for the American Way, listed some of the ways voters have been "discouraged" from voting.

"In elections in Baltimore in 2002 and in Georgia last year, black voters were sent fliers saying anyone who hadn't paid utility bills or had outstanding parking tickets or were behind on their rent would be arrested at polling stations. It happens in every election cycle," she said.

Always remember: Republicans can never win a fair election.

Whereas Democrats seek to "get out the vote", Republicans seek to suppress it.

This should make you angry rather than depressed. Do something about it.
