The Granny Warriors, a Ron Paul support group, raised over $55,000 for the New Hampshire recount.  At the last minute, PayPal froze their account, preventing them from paying the New Hampshire Secretary of State.  Who owns PayPal? EBay.  The CEO of EBay is on the Romney Steering Committee.

Vote Fraud and the Bankruptcy of the United States (WhatReallyHappened, reposted from 2000)
EXCERPT: “In an atmosphere of doubt about the validity of the voting process, it cannot be assumed that the American people have actually voted for or approved of any of the government’s actions and policies for the last 35 years. That includes a couple of wars and some $14 trillion in debt, and the $60,000 in interest payments alone each taxpayer has had to fork over since the 60s.”
Disenfranchisement case to be heard Thu 1/17 in Reno; could be impacted by Wed Supreme Court decision (AmericaBlog 1/16/08)
EXCERPTS: “The attempt by supporters of Hillary Clinton to change the rules of the Nevada Democratic caucus, which have been approved for months, goes to court tomorrow. A Supreme Court decision issued today based on a case from New York State seems to undermine the arguments of the plaintiffs.” 
From the Supreme Court decision re: NY State Demcorats: “”A political party has a First Amendment right to limit its membership as it wishes and to choose a candidate-selection process that will in its view produce the nominee who best represents its political platform,” Justice Antonin Scalia wrote for the court.”

The Kudzu Effect: The Voting-Industrial Complex Chokes Out Democracy (FreePress.org via MParent 1/8/08)
“Computerized voting, promoted by an interlocking cabal of political operatives and vendors is strangling American democracy, like the parasitic vine of the Japanese kudzu plant. According to Election Data Services, almost 80% of all voters in 2006 voted on electronic voting machines or optically-scanned ballots nationwide. Less than 1% of voters in the U.S. used traditional hand-counted paper ballots. What has caused this meteoric rise in computerized voting and vote counting where proprietary secrets destroy the transparency of the election process? A massive public relations campaign by a handful of strategically placed individuals has peddled computer voting as the high-tech wave of the future.” 
Voter ID Card is the Real Scam (Baltimore Sun 1/14/08)
“If the U.S. Supreme Court upholds Indiana’s harsh voter ID law, as its justices seem poised to do, hundreds of thousands of black Americans should march in protest. So should hundreds of thousands of Latino Americans. Native Americans, too. Political activists from across the ethnic spectrum should convene the biggest political demonstration since the historic March on Washington in 1963. Where is the Rev. Al Sharpton when a genuinely critical issue comes along? Where’s the Rev. Jesse Jackson?”

2 election workers sentenced to 18 months for rigging 2004 Cuyahoga County OH recount (AP/Toledo Blade 3/13/07)
EXCERPT: “A judge suspicious of more corruption pressed two former election board workers to tell what they know and then sentenced them today to the maximum 18 months in prison for rigging the 2004 presidential election recount to make their job easier. “I can’t help but feel there’s more to this story,” said Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge Peter Corrigan, who allowed the women to remain free on bond pending appeal. Some of their friends and relatives sobbed as the judge imposed the sentence. The judge repeatedly asked Jacqueline Maiden, 60, an election coordinator who was the Cuyahoga County board’s third-highest ranking employee, and ballot manager Kathleen Dreamer, 40, if higher-ups in the board had directed the recount rigging. “It seems unlikely your supervisors wouldn’t know,” the judge prodded.”
Dropping Out of the Electoral College (ZMag 1/6/08)
Voter ID Laws are Set to Face Strictest Test (NYTimes 1/7/08)
EXCERPT: “Supporters of the law, most of them Republicans, say a requirement for state photo identification card is a prudent step toward curbing voter fraud. They say the requirement helps restore confidence in the voting process by removing the potential for fraud, though Indiana has never cited a case of “voter impersonation,” which is what the law is supposed to prevent. Opponents of the law, most of them Democrats, view voter identification requirements as a deterrent that disproportionately affects poor, minority and elderly voters, who more often than other people lack the required forms of identification and who also tend to back Democrats. And unlike supporters of the law, they say they have evidence to bolster their case and show that it has harmed Indiana voters…. Last year, legislators in 27 states proposed laws like the one in Indiana, seeking to increase identification requirements for registration or voting”.

What if the republicans do win another 4 years, due to voter fraud and/or plain ignorance??? Would Americans opt to move to Canada? I heard Canada was ramping up its immigration centers in expectation of another wave of “Blue Staters” in the event of a Republican victory: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/index.asp
In the independent film “Blue State,” the protagonist does exactly that. He decides to flee the United States after another republican victory in 2004, due to strong liberal ideals: http://www.bluestate.com
