Political Rant: Republicans Will Steal The Election So GET OUT THE VOTE!

Hello Bloggers - Brad's Blog is reporting this morning on some great success capturing election fraud on camera. A public interest group has caught electronic voting machines swapping votes from Obama to McCain - and Nader in some cases.

VideoTheVote.org caught vote-flipping incidents on ES&S iVotronic machines in West Virginia - the same incidents were reported anecdotally in the national press last week.

The same group has reports of votes flipping from Democratic to Republican (and other) candidates across the states of West Virginia, Tennessee, Texas and Missouri. You can read the whole article and watch the votes flipping on video before your own eyes by visiting Videothe Vote.org's site or Brad's Blog.

If you read the article it says that even after officials re-calibrated the machines, the iVotronic still failed to record votes correctly. They continued to switch votes, many switching votes from Obama to Ralph Nader. Incredible!

I don't know about you guys, but this is precisely the reason why our get out the vote effort has to be significant. If we can't get Democrats to show up in extremely high numbers, especially in the infamous swing states, then we could lose this election.

I hope the Republicans reading this are ashamed of whoever is doing it in their name. Democracy will not stand if election fraud is allowed to stand. We must stop those who try to steal elections. They threaten our freedom and the survival of our nation.

Those who have watched Barack Obama's special TV broadcast tonight will have a better idea of what he stands for and what he will be able to deliver as president.

There is no doubt whatsoever in my mind, heart or soul that Obama is an opportunity to turn the best country in the world into an even better country. Opportunities like these don't come around every four or eight years; they present themselves once every several hundred years.

On November 4, whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, you have one clear choice, and that choice is Barack Obama. Don't allow your judgment to be clouded by ideology or partisanship. Instead, make the choice that is right for your country, America.

Despite its problems and crises, the United States of America is the most powerful and best country in the world. America has always been a beacon of hope and opportunity. For some time now, though, its light has been dimmed somewhat, and unless you, my dear American readers, make the right choice on November 4, that light will grow darker until, one day, it may be extinguished entirely.

In Barack Obama, you will have a president that is as "normal", "ordinary" and human as all of you. He won't go off to some "castle in the sky" and forget about what life is like for all of you.

As a Canadian, I can only wish for a leader like Barack Obama, because in my country we do not have any leader who comes even close to what Barack Obama represents. In fact, in Canada, in all its history, we have never had a leader of Obama's calibre. If we had, Canada, perhaps, would not be the intractable mess it is today.

My wife, a lifelong conservative voter, was moved to tears by Obama's broadcast tonight and sobbed through it all – yes, a conservative was moved to tears by Obama's message. If she were an American, she would vote for Barack Obama on November 4 not just once, but a million times over. She even expressed the hope that Obama could serve more than two terms in office – she was that impressed and moved by him, as a person, and by his message for hope and change.

I implore you, my dear American readers, to vote for Barack Obama on November 4. Vote for change, vote for hope, vote for a better America and vote for a better world for yourselves and your children.

That was fantastic Werner. It is so nice to hear that some of our Canadian friends are moved by Barack - conservatives too. I agree that he is a generational figure, and possibly a transformative president. I LOVED his presentation last night too. I cried a bit too. Thanks for taking a position. It's nice to know that he's inspiring people all over the world. Michael
