Lessons from the US.

We're constantly hearing about how Armenia, a "third world country," has a serious problem with voter fraud. Well, here are some lessons from the US in how to perpetrate voter fraud that Serj might want to pay attention to:



Voter fraud does happen in the US, it is real, and it is going to happen on Nov. 4th. So, two things:

1. Stop pretending that the US is the democratic standard that all nations should be measured against: The US is a voter-fraud shit-hole that is rapidly becoming a second-world country.

2. Go here.

Update: They nixed the last link to the segment I linked to on You Tube. I've got a new link up to the same segment. Hope it stays there.

Records show that this was happening since the earliest days of American democracy and as this video shows, still is alive and kicking.
Voting and vote-rigging go hand in hand. As the founder of khosq.com , I can tell that vote rigging has been (and still continues to be) attempted even on such an innocent website like khosq.com -- from it's earliest days till now. As expected most of these attempts came from person from "accross the isle" if we call it mildly ;) -- Surprise, surprise, eh?

Digg.com is the Mecca of vote-fraud, where every digger has at least 8 accounts.

But, at least in digital world of cyberspace it is a lot easier to guard against voting-fraud than in real life.

I guess, Democracy and voting are two sepaate concepts. Democracy is a much broader principle that encompases a whole mirriad of values and standards. Voting is just a ritual -- a reverance of the Spectacle.
