We will tell the inside story of the battle against invisible election stealing in this presidential election. You will be introduced to some of the players, in person, who helped stop the election from being stolen. Every other year, a small group of us work hard to prevent our elections from being stolen. It is really an uphill battle, though, because votes are counted by private corporations who will not let anyone look at their vote-counting software.As Stalin said, "Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything." This year, we will display for you what we discovered about the electronic "election management empire" of Karl Rove who, although defeated this year, will most certainly be involved again four years from now.

In bringing out the inside story, we do not mean in any way to say what we did is more important than others' efforts this election to create more fair and just elections, like reducing voter suppression. What we seek to bring forward, are the other aspects of creating more trustworthy elections that are usually never covered in the mainstream media. Happily, there was some significant coverage this year about invisible vote stealing in the mainstream media due to the efforts of Bob Fitrakis and the Free Press. We also want to show you how both the Green Party and the Libertarian party have sought to contribute in very significant ways to our having more trustworthy elections, both in the present and in the future.

Because saving our elections from being stolen appears to be a concern with every major election, we are reaching out to you to join us in whatever way you feel moved, because we can really use your help.
