I want to see the dead rabbit. If you are pro Hillary Clinton or John McCain, this is not the blog entry for you to read. I'm writing from my gut without proof of any wrong doing other than the machines used to count the votes are by Diebold.
The Brad Blog reports:
"...concerning the way the ballots are counted in New Hampshire, largely on Diebold optical-scan voting systems, wholly controlled and programmed by a very very bad company named LHS Associates.
Those Diebold op-scan machines are the exact same ones that were hacked in the HBO documentary, Hacking Democracy. See the previous report, as I recommend, which also includes a video of that hack, and footage of the guy who runs LHS Associates.
That said, the the pre-election pollster's numbers (NOTE: that's not Exit Polls, but Pre-Election Polls!) were dead-on, for the most part, on the Republican side, as well as on the Democratic side. Except in the do-or-die (for Hillary) Clinton v. Obama race. I'm watching MSNBC right now, and they all seem to agree that the results, for the moment, defy explanation.

NH: "First in the nation" (with corporate controlled secret vote counting) By Nancy Tobi 07 Jan 2008 81% of New Hampshire ballots are counted in secret by a private corporation named Diebold Election Systems (now known as "Premier"). The elections run on these machines are programmed by one company, LHS Associates, based in Methuen, MA. We know nothing about the people programming these machines, and we know even less about LHS Associates. We know even less about the secret vote counting software used to tabulate 81% of our ballots.

Not another stolen election!
Smells like the same folks who fixed the voting for GWB fixed it for their loyal partner Bill Clinton. I know I'm jaded but on election night I was cupping my mouth to keep from screaming at the television set ANOTHER STOLEN ELECTION, a subject I've written about in the past.
Reported problems with "not enough paper ballots", reports of voting machines arriving that still had problems with accurate counts, it stinks. Rather than ask questions, the media is saying they read the people wrong, again.
The parallels are frightening to the Bush election drama, down to long voting lines in some areas met with 'we're out of paper ballots.'
In a race this close, how did they count the paper ballots so fast? Were the paper ballots used in the heavily Obama favored areas and other machines used where the folks who where cheering her on voted?
"Something happened over the past 24 hours" MSMBC's Morning Joe said on the morning after the shock. It's like 'you want me to believe what?'
I am to believe that New Hampshire voted for the two most industrial / military / congressional complex candidates, people who still vote for the war in Iraq, approved going to war with Iran, were SILENT as the head of the EPA told folks in the NY Tri-state area that the air was safe to breathe and the water safe to drink on 9/13, still believe the 19 lucky hijackers story, anti-hemp and are clearly last century's leadership left overs. Their chants of march to war still ring in my ears.
And this is change?
Hillary Clinton and John McCain are Industrial Age leadership. We need Information Age leadership in this, the Information Age.
Time will tell the truth about the "projected" wins of Hillary Clinton and John McCain in New Hampshire.
If they got it honest, then I give up. The country is doomed to more of the same stupidity like more war and a health care system where people pay for their health care or do without, just like now. Or maybe, if we can't buy health insurance like Sen. Clinton wants, we'll be thrown in jail for the crime of poverty.
Don't trust the government. It was true in the 60's and it's still true. In addition to 9/11, the election is an inside job too.
I demand integrity be restored to the election process. It's part of the process for us to save ourselves from this legislated to death nation we live in.
