"War Hawks" Win in New Hampshire, Electronic Voting Suspect.

Joe Lieberman should be proud today, as John McCain and Hillary both came up on top in New Hampshire. The two "pro-war", "pro-empire building", "pro-war spending" candidates have risen like a couple "phoenix from the ashes" in defiance of the polls.

Some attribute Hillary's rise as a result of her "teary eyed" speech after her Iowa loss, others have come forth and cried "fowl" blaming Diabold, the makers of the very controversial voting machines.

Disturbing reports came about from all sources, to include poll watchers being dismissed, to ballots being counted in secrecy. A flurry of videos on the Internet demonstrated the ease and speed in which the voting machines can be hacked to throw elections, and a recent poll I did online gave Diabold a very low margin of trust. This concern spread to Connecticut and again to many local elections prompting our Secretary of State Susan Byscewitz to address public trust concerns.

The biggest shocker was when voter fraud expert Harris sounded the alarm on New Hampshire calling concern to the ease of hacking and cheating the count.

To quote Paul Hoffman from the Ron Paul CT New Haven County Meetup group "81% of New Hampshire ballots are counted in secret by a private corporation named Diebold Election Systems (now known as “Premier”). The elections run on these machines are programmed by one company, LHS Associates, based in Methuen, MA. The public knows nothing about the people programming these machines, and even less is known about LHS Associates. No one knows about the secret vote counting software used to tabulate 81% of the ballots either. People like to say “but we use paper ballots” as if that were somehow proof that we aren’t a banana republic. But that term’s meaningless. The election last night was stolen, outright. There’s no question."
