Stolen Elections or How Republicans 'Block The Votes'

In the United States of America-- arguably the largest democratic country in the world-- citizens are denied their right to vote and ballots are thrown away. As Kennedy and Palast put it "Republican operatives — the party's elite commandos of bare-knuckle politics — are wielding new federal legislation to systematically disenfranchise Democrats in order to win elections." Robert F. Kennedy Jr. & Greg Palast have investigated Republicans' fraudulent 'business'. In their Rolling Stone article 'Block the Vote', they explain how Republicans operate and how voters can avoid the traps and get their vote count.

In this video, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is interviewed by Rachel Maddow :

“The Republican Party mounted a coordinated, criminal campaign to steal the 2004 Presidential election -- and it worked. Now, as another election approaches, you and I need to stand together to make absolutely certain it doesn’t happen again!” - Robert F. Kennedy Jr. -

...An organizer at the rally rattled off the addresses of early vote sites nearby that would be open after the event.

Photographer Joe Eddins and I headed over to the closest one and found a steady line of voters hoping to cast ballots early. Most seemed to be Obama supporters and several had come from the rally. Nearly all the voters were black.

Also at the polling site was a group of loud and angry protesters who shouted and mocked the voters as they walked in. Nearly all were white.

Comment from a European reader: Some Conservatives believe that Democrats should get over the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections and move on. But they don't realize that most people worldwide (including world Leaders) do not believe that George W. Bush was ever elected democratically. Hence, the lack of respect for him in the world from the ginning of his presidency. Bush foreign policy just made matters worse.
