FACTS ABOUT THE REALITY OF U.S. 'VOTING'

EVERY AMERICAN MUST KNOW


ES&S is the largest voting machine manufacturer in the U.S. and
'counts' almost 60% of all U.S. votes.

80% of all votes in America are counted by only two companies -- ES&S and Diebold.

The president of ES&S and the vice president of Diebold are brothers.

The Chairman and CEO of Diebold is a major Bush campaign organizer and donor who
wrote in 2003 that he was "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to
the president (Bush) next year."

Republican Senator Chuck Hagel used to be Chairman of ES&S. He became Senator based on
a 'surprirse surge' in votes 'counted' by ES&S machines.

Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, long connected with the Bush family, was recently caught lying
about his ownership of ES&S by the Senate Ethics Committee.

Senator Chuck Hagel was on a short list of George W. Bush's vice-presidential candidates.

Diebold's new touch screen voting machines have no paper trail of any votes. In other words,
there is no way to verify that the data coming out of the machines are the same as what was
legitimately put in by voters.

Diebold also makes ATMs, supermarket checkout scanners, and ticket machines, all of which
log each transaction and can generate a paper trail.

Diebold is based in Ohio.

None of the international election observers were allowed in the polls in Ohio in the 2004 election.
Diebold employed 5 convicted felons as 'senior managers' and 'developers' to help write the
central compiler computer code that 'counted' 50% of the votes in 30 states in the 2004 election.
Jeff Dean, Diebold's Senior Vice-President and senior programmer on Diebold's central
compiler code, was convicted of 23 counts of felony theft in the first degree.

Diebold Senior Vice-President Jeff Dean was convicted of planting back doors in his software and
using a "high degree of sophistication" to evade detection over a period of 2 years.

California banned the use of Diebold machines because their security was so bad.
Despite Diebold's claims that the audit logs could not be hacked, a chimpanzee
was able to do it.

30% of all U.S. votes are carried out on unverifiable touch-screen voting machines
with no paper trail.

All - not some, but all -- of the voting machine errors detected and reported in Florida
went in favor of Bush or Republican candidates. The odds of this not happening by
fraud are trillions to 1.
The governor of the state of Florida, Jeb Bush, is the President's brother.

Serious voting anomalies in Florida in the 2004 election - again always favoring Bush -
have been mathematically demonstrated to have to have been based on fraud, and
experts are recommending further investigation.
