The American vote-count is controlled by three major corporate players -- Diebold, ES&S, and Sequoia -- with a fourth, Science Applications International Corporation, coming on strong. These companies -- all of them hardwired into the Bushist Party power grid -- have been given billions of dollars by the Bush Regime to complete a sweeping computerization of voting machines nationwide by the 2004 election.

The corporate media says 'move on'. We don't think so.
There were many scurious activities that led to the Florida recount debacle, but none so glaring as the illegal purging of 55,000 mostly African-American voters from the voter rolls by Jeb Bush and Kathryne Harris.
We have Greg Palast to thank for uncovering this CRIME and we recommend his book, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy for a comprehensive accounting.
We also reccomend Greg's website where you will find a plethora of related articles.
