When I started messing with these figures in the middle of the night I thought I must surely be exhausted & that my eyes were deceiving me.
My son, who is a mathematics type, helped me to convert Florida voting results to charts that show the miracle figures for Republicans in Florida . It is not just with the touch screen. Escambia County where I reside & where we use optical scanners showed the following results:
Total registered Voters 189,833 Total Votes Cast----- - 142,895
Registered Republican --- 43.8% = 83,147 - Rep votes cast -- 93,311
Registered Democrat ---40.7% = 77,262 - Dem votes cast -- 48,207
Others - - 1377
The results defy all logic.
If you can believe your eyes, Republicans not only had the equivalent of 100% of all registered republicans casting a vote but apparently 10,164 Democrats or other parties opted to also vote for Bush!
In county after county it's like that and this is Optical Scanners people with a paper trail!
This is insane!
http://ustogether.org/Florida_Election.htm & a print out from Florida elections are the source for these figures.
Brian Zepp Jamison has apparently been checking figures too and posted this in his Yahoo group & on his web site. People this is brazen, in your face fraud!
The Smoking Gun
Floridaís election was an utter sham, and Putsch stole the state again
by Bryan Zepp Jamieson
Imagine that you lived in a county that had 30,000 registered voters, of whom 10,000 were registered as Democrats, 10,000 as Republicans, and 10,000 as independents. Suppose you further knew that polls had shown that 91% of Republicans planned to vote for the Republican, and 88% of Democrats planned to vote for the Democrat. Among the independents, 60% planned to vote for the Democrat. (Less than 1% of all voters planned to vote for third party candidates in this scenario.) Weíll pretend that 100% of these voters actually voted, although in reality, the turnout would have been closer to 75%.
Given that data, you would expect a fairly sizeable win for the Democrat. If the polls were accurate (and exit polls are VERY accurate, to within one half of one percent of the actual vote totals), then the Democrat would have gotten 8,800 votes from Democratic voters, about 900 from Republican voters, and 6,000 from independents, giving him 15,700 votes to 14,300 votes for the Republican.
If you looked in your paper the next day and saw that the Republican won, you might be surprised.. Typically, 7% of voters actually decide in the last day, which is why polls are sometimes off by up to 3%. But exit polls interview people who have already decided.
If you learned that the Republican got 22,000 votes and the Democrat just 8,000, you might be very suspicious.
This is what happened in Florida . It didnít happen in just one county. It happened in a large number of counties, and the discrepancy between the vote totals and the voting demographics is far bigger and more egregious than my fictional example above.
Commondreams collated the numbers, and the results are available at http://ustogether.org/Florida_Election.htm These collations, in turn, are based directly on the numbers given by the state of Florida , and represent 98.6% of the vote total.
Here are some of the examples:
In Baker County , where 69.3% of the voters are registered as Democratic, Bush supposedly won by a 7,738 to 2,180 margin. For this to be possible, Bush would have had to have gotten the votes of every single Republican and 4,500 of the roughly 7,000 Democrats and independents.
In Calhoun County , where 82.4% of voters are Democrat, Putsch won the vote by a 3,780 to 2,116 margin. There are less than a thousand Republicans in that county.
Bradford County : 61.4% Democrat, Putsch won 7,553 to 3,244.
In Dixie county, roughly 1,500 Republicans were able to deliver 4,433 votes for Putsch. The 7,700 Democrats only had 1,959.
It goes on and on. Florida has a lot of counties, and nearly all of them show these discrepancies. In all, Democrats came up short by about 430,000 votes, and the Republicans had 1,023,000 more votes than the models would have predicted.
Equally interesting was the way in which the discrepancies broke down between counties using touch screen, and those using optical scanners. In the touch screen counties, the deviation was 410,491 towards Putsch and 414,913 away from Kerry. (And there were widespread complaints in Florida that people who had picked Kerry noticed that the screen showed them picking Bush) Among the optical scanners, the deviation was 13,250 from Kerry (and well within the margin of error). However, George seems to have picked up an extra 612,971 votes from somewhere. That jibes with reports that early morning voters had encountered ballot boxes that already had a whole bunch of ballots in there. It looks like Putsch did quite well in the midnight to 6am vote in Florida .
The deviations are most noticeable in small counties, such as Hardee, Holmes, Lafayees, and Liberty (where Putsch managed to get 712% of his 2000 vote).
The touch screen machines were off by 400,000 from what the models said they should have reported, but of course, thereís absolutely no way to check their totals. The ONLY record of the voting is the totals that the machines gave. No recount is possible, and isnít that a disgrace?
However, itís obvious that in the Optical Scan counties, there was systematic and widespread ballot box stuffing Ė over 600,000 votes cast, not by Americans selecting a President, but by crooked polling personnel and Republican party hacks.
The ballot box stuffing was widespread, and focused on small counties where, it was assumed, the figures wouldnít be examined very closely.
Does anyone believe that there is a single place in America where Putsch could not only get SEVEN TIMES the number of votes he got in 2000, but get over two-thirds of all the Democratic voters in order to do so?
Do you believe thatís possible? Well, do you?
The official margin of victory for Putsch in Florida was 377,216 votes. It looks like Diebold alone would have stolen the election for him, but the Republicans are greedy, stupid, and insecure. They had to stuff the ballot boxes in Op-Scan counties with an extra 600,000 ballots.
Write your Congressmen, write your newspapers, pass this along to all your friends. Make sure the link to Ustogether.org is in there so people can check it out for themselves.
And if you live in Florida , contact an attorney and push for a revote in Florida . If you donít want America to be just another third-world joke, do it right away. Organize, and push for a revote. Even if Kerry demurs.
If Florida had had an honest vote, Kerry would have had 280 electoral votes and would be the President-elect today.
Donít let those Nazi bastards steal the election again!
