Was the Election of 2004 Stolen?

What happens in November 2006 will tell the tale for the United States of America. If the Democrats win, they still have to deal with states where respect for the voting process is not much advanced over Peronist Argentina or Mussolini's Italy. Make no mistake it is going to be a gigantic struggle to bring back voter confidence in elections. The reasons for this, of course, are the unscrupulous and widespread dishonesty of Republicans in the last election. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., has an essay published about those elections which, aside from being a "collectors item" of research journalism, is something you should keep (download and save) to show to your children and grandchildren in case it goes badly again. You probably will not be allowed to read anything like this again if the next election is stolen.
