The Strip & Flip Selection of 2016: Five Jim Crows & Electronic Election Theft

By Bob Fitrakis & Harvey Wasserman

"The 'strip and flip' technique of controlling electronic elections can easily apply to citizens of all faiths and color. But in the US, race has been the critical tool for dividing the populace. It’s the bottom-line basic instrument that makes electronic election theft possible." ~ Harvey Wasserman & Bob Fitrakis 

"What had happened between 2000 and 2004 was the Help America Vote Act. Meant to correct problems with Florida paper punch-card ballots, it was fraud capacity disguised as reform. It encouraged the buying of electronic voting systems as the solution to federal mandates. The hope that true reformists had was that computers would prove colorblind. Instead, computer counting made us blind. We no longer see our votes being counted. As in any darkness, nefarious schemes are much easier to accomplish." ~ Mimi Kennedy, in the Introduction

"Sensible Americans were doing everything in their power this summer to avoid all thought of the Presidential election, its icky choices, its barf-making ads, the chatter-heads and chuckle-heads on TV spewing brain-cell killing bromides and the parade of officious ponces who call themselves “elected officials” and the wannabe electeds-–while Bob and Harvey worked like dogs to protect Our Democracy." ~ Greg Palast, in the Preface
