Conspiracy theorists dream
2 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story of mass voter fraud done by computer nerds. If this is true, it's probably one of the scariest things ever. Not scary like the wolfman scary, but scary because it's real.

This shows that it was actually legitimately possible that the entire presidential election was rigged. With simple hacking or computer programing by a company run by a republican and supported by republicans turning the output toward a republican candidate.

It completely explains the negative vote totals that Kerry received in some districts in the last election. Instead of stuffing the ballot box, technology allows to start one person possibly negative 10,000 votes with the other guy up 10,000 ... unfortunately Kerry didn't get the number of votes required to bring the negative vote back to zero.

This is pretty big. If it is true.
