Former president Jimmie Carter speaks out

"It is unconscionable to perpetuate fraudulent or biased electoral practices in any nation," said the former president when he was discussing the problems with the voting system in Florida.

Mr. Carter also added: "A fumbling attempt has been made recently to disqualify 22,000 African Americans (likely Democrats), but only 61 Hispanics (likely Republicans), as alleged felons."

Jeb Bush, the governor of Florida and brother of GW Bush, has taken no steps to correct the aberrancies that marred the 2000 elections and with the mew electronic voting machines completely compromised it appears that Florida's vote will again be the center focus on an already compromised election. 

As president Carter said: “With reforms unlikely at this late stage of the election, perhaps the only recourse will be to focus maximum public scrutiny on the suspicious process in Florida."

The United States' Head of Diplomacy, or Secretary of State, is an anachronistic, incompetent, meddling, intrusive, insolent and arrogant, rude individual, a brash, foul-mouthed upstart, a conceited, self-important guttersnipe and an insult to the international community, as fit for the job as a pedophile janitor in a grade school.

Tillerson must go!
