Election Time 2006

November 18th, 2006 . by Alexander Fisher

As I look back on things that I would have done over the years, I would have bought stock in my previous company just before it was purchased by Sprint. Another thing I would have done would be to invest in defense contractors, oil companies, and the pharmaceutical industry after George W. Bush was appointed president in 2000. At this moment I feel it would be a good investment to invest in companies that make paper shredding machines or perform that service in the Washington D.C. area. No doubt the shredding has already begun.

The results of the recent election seemed strangely close for an overwhelming victory in both houses of Congress. I personally was prepared for another stolen election by the Republicans and their comrades in the electronic voting machine business. All indications are that if there were any tampering, the real vote totals were so anti- administration, there could not have been enough cheating without it being too obvious. There were reports of “robocalls”, which were automatically dialed telephone announcements. These were meant to give incorrect or damaging information about a candidate, issue, or the polling place location for the coming election day. There were also unrelated issues and people conflated in an attempt to link multiple issues that might not normally be connected, not always in a good way.

I can’t guarantee that none of these incidents came from the Democrats, but my guess these calls were from mainly right wing organizations that have some financial stake in the outcome of the elections. I sometimes wonder what country these people grew up in. They certainly didn’t pay much attention in history class, or they would of known that things like robocalls are a subversion of the principles of democracy. With all of the games that the Republicans were playing, it makes me wonder how many votes the Democrats actually got, or didn’t get.
