During his interview with Greg Palast, Jimmy Dore wonders why Democrats don't call foul when elections are obviously stolen. I think it's because, just like Republicans, they don't want power in the hands of the people. It doesn't serve the oligarchs if we prove they rig our elections. And the sell-outs in corporate media just play along.

Legitimate democracy would fundamentally change life in the United States of American. If enough people would realize that we might...might be able to elect less shitty assholes to public office. But the political carnivals that are sold to us as elections keep charlatans in office. Congress is full of carny folk whose greatest skill is stealing tax dollars for crony capitalists. Dollars collected for the public good is funneled upward to line the pockets of corporate billionaires and their stooges.

Before you throw the bullshit flag watch the interview below, then watch Palast's movie, then followup by tracking down the many news articles that back him up.

"Greg Palast discusses the theft of the 2016 election with "Aggressive Progressive" comedian Jimmy Dore. Find out how Trump's billionaire buddies stole the White House, get the brand new, post-election edition of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy."

P.S. Some news.

"Republicans prevented more than 350,000 voters in Ohio from casting ballots or having their votes counted -- enough to have put John Kerry in the White House."

"Now, the actual effect of the recount is obviously something of a side issue when assessing the actions of the Court. Nobody knew the outcome of the recount, only that it threatened to make Al Gore president, and stopping it would guarantee Bush’s victory."

P.P.S. Why no Obama?

These tactics work because our two party system keeps votes virtually split down the middle. They just need to jigger things a bit to decide who gets to be president. The Democratic and Republican balance is so finely tuned that the powers that be love it. Obama had a commanding lead so stealing the election was too difficult, but it didn't matter because he was a cooperative member of the establishment. He did not rock the boat. Imperial America stayed on its disastrous course.

P.P.S. The only green in American politics is money.

Jill Stein was willing to pay for a recount in key states following the 2016 election. This might have verified results or it may have revealed irregularities or even fraud. A recount could only have served public interest, but it was aggressively fought and eventually denied by the establishment. Stein was not attempting to gain by the recount, it could only have served Clinton or Trump, but exposing the sorry state of our voting apparatus could not be allowed.
