Are Even The Primary
By James Donahue
Columnists and the media
talking heads are having a big todo about the “failure” of professional pollsters to capture the real mood of
Hampshire voters in last week’s presidential primary.
That Hillary Clinton
came out on top, against all expectations based on pre-election polling, caught many by surprise. It also indicates what
we suspect is an ongoing and manufactured media contest between the black and female candidate, billed as “frontrunners”
among a line of Democratic candidates for the past year. The smoke screen has been an effective way of keeping viable party
candidates in the shadows, and setting the Republicans up for yet another victory in 2008.
That Democratic presidential
candidate Dennis Kucinich, and Republican Albert Howard are seeking recounts of the New
Hampshire primary election returns is not surprising, based on evidence of “anomalies”
uncovered by activist group, Election Defense Alliance. What is surprising is that the media appears to be ignoring the recount
requests, and the possible accusation of voter fraud.
While the implication
is that the Clintons possessed the clout to “steal”
that election, we suggest that if it was done, the guilt runs much deeper. We believe the same power structure that financed
Bill Clinton’s victory in the 1990s, and gave George W. Bush the office since 2001, may be at it again, carefully rigging
early primary elections to sway the scales toward the person already chosen to succeed Mr. Bush.
In other words, the elections
in America may have become relatively
meaningless. It is all a lot of hoopla and horn blowing, and expenditure of great fortunes in campaign advertising and speech
making, just for the show. In the end, the chosen candidate will capture the electoral votes to win the job. And as it was
in 2000 and 2004, the general public will be left wondering how it all happened.
The Kucinich/Howard vote
recount will help establish a paper trail that will determine if erroneous vote counting occurred, and if there was fraud.
If fraud is proven, it might be a good thing to expose it early in the electoral process so that Americans get a chance to
really elect their president this time around.
If fraud cannot be proven,
it will not mean that rigged voting will not occur elsewhere. The process is complex and continues for almost a solid year,
so exposing the crooks will be difficult if not impossible. In some states, like South
Carolina, for example, all of the voting is on paperless electronic machines, thus preventing any
chance for a recount. Can the machines be rigged? Some say they surely can.
