Only in America folks... American Goy shows you its not how people vote, its WHO counts the votes

An oldie but goody story here.
Diebold story from 2004

In 2004, Mr. Walden "Wally" O'Dell, the chairman of the board and chief executive of the Diebold Company, said that he pledged "to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the President." This was said at a Republican fundraiser for the Republican party.

Now, in case y'all forgot, Diebold was (and actually still is) the company that is making machines that count the votes. The votes that people cast for either Republicans or Democrats. Let me break it down for you, idiot style:

There are 3 things that are wrong with this story.

1) How come a CEO of a company that makes machines that count people's votes has a fundraiser for the Republicans (perhaps a lil wee conflict of interest?)
2) How come he was brazen enough to both have the fundraiser for the GOP AND tell them that his company will DELIVER the votes to the Republican president (perhaps this is a WEE LIL CONFLICT OF INTEREST?).
3) How come we Americans don't give a shit but criticize the elections in Russia as undemocratic?
This is somewhat timely, as the following report came out:
Ohio voting machines fucked up from NYTimes

Do you still think that we Americans are living in a democracy? (I know I know technically this is a Republic, says the republican. And here's my baseball bat to your face. Yes, I got issues).

"It's not the people who vote that count. It's who counts the votes." - attributed to Joseph Stalin.
