  3. Namiste,

    This was the first that I had ever heard of Voter Caging of votes before, but I often thought that the votes are rigged in many different ways. I even think that there are those hat can change the outcome of votes on electronic voting machines even there are these that think that they are safer.

    They have to suppress the vote based upon what race they are. How dare they be racist in this day in age so out in the open that way?

    They even did it to Americans who were serving in Americans armed services fighting for their president’s war!!!!

    What a bunch of low life crooks making it appear that registered democrats are all to be challenged or just because they were people of color.

    It is just so sad what had happened to the American citizenship, America as a whole, and to Al gore that had ran for the presidency after President Clinton’s time in office was coming to an end. Due to Chad Gate a new Bush was to come into the Office of the presidency. The Republican Governor of Texas George W. Bush ran for the presidency and was given the presidency of the United States of America by his Brother the republican governor of Florida. Yes due to the counting of the votes in Florida State where the governor Jeb Bush, George W. Bushes brother, whom was running for the office of the presidency was a total mess and a fiasco, and possibly the presidency was stolen in just this way. Florida, Governor Jeb Bush’s state was the deciding state for the amount of votes that the Electoral College was to vote for either Democrat Mr. Al Gore X-Vise President of the United States, and Republican running for President his brother the Governor of Texas Mr. George W. Bush. Due to these Chads little pieces of paper that would be punched out from voting cards by the general electing public, with antiquated polling machines was President George W. Bush given the presidency of The United States. If lets say a chad was hanging on, or for what ever reason a number of chads had too many fall out of a ballet, or the polling machine would become clogged with too many of the chads, and no clear vote had been made due to too many chads in the polling machines being stuffed full of them no clear vote was made. This was the only reason why President Bush was able to win enough Electoral College votes to become the president. It was that close. It was possible and if conspiracy theorists are correct that there actually were more popular votes for Al Gore than were cast for George Bush the Governors brother state and state officials helped out the Brother in the counts and it was still very, very close.
    Al Gore bowed out gracefully like a gentleman although he probably should have disputed the vote and asked for a recount and then a few more recounts or to have the votes from that state retaken to get an accurate and proper polling of who that state really had wanted to be the president of the United States.
    Americans wonder why the generation of kids today seems so apathetic, disenfranchised, and don’t bother to take the time to register to vote. What about the Kids of the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and the 2010 generation. At least in The 60’s when the Kids thought that the Vietnam war was wrong and bring our boys home they at least had the guts and self inner fortitude to get out there and demonstrate for what they believed to be right. Kids today figure why bother and what is the point. The rich, wealthy, and better politically connected will win what ever election no matter what I vote. My vote doesn’t really count any way as the election of the presidency had so proudly shown to that generation is actually done from the Electoral College not by the popular vote because our fore fathers decided that the unclean and ignorant masses weren’t smart enough to decide who should run this great country of ours. The youth have been taught in grade school in high school and if they are lucky enough to go to college through taking the US constitution all of this which they have to learn and pass otherwise they aren’t allowed to graduate or go any further in their educational endeavors. The sad truth of it is, that in the beginning, when the country was started only the rich land owners, who were educated, were the only ones allowed to vote. These were the ones who ran everything. They were the ones who even at that stage in the game of our new country only the select few were allowed to vote. These true American Hero’s the founding fathers decided that America still needed to have an electoral college to decide who should be the president and leader of this great land, and not the common voter. No women could vote, no black people could vote, no slaves could vote, no indentured servants could vote, and no one who didn’t own land could vote. This is really how the nation and originators of the US constitution came up with we the people by the people for the people, and all men are created equal allowed us to become such a great nation which it is today.

    The firing of the district attorneys should also be investigated.

    Namiste and peace,
