VOTESCAM by James and Kenneth Collier
Factual Hidden History and a White-Knuckle Page-Turner
The foreword to this book describes Jim and Ken Collier as having “had a tiger by the tail” when they stumbled onto the ugly, mostly hidden realities which impelled them to write this book. As an experiment, they tried to see if the common man could still run for a seat in congress in this nation and stand a snowball’s chance. This was back in the late 1970s; yet they were shocked to find extremely obvious evidence of behind-the-scenes voter fraud even back then–with the American media in collusion, no less–which prevented them from succeeding in that goal, just when it looked like they were gaining serious ground on the established congressional crook whom they were running against. The polls and the media did a quick “presto-chango” and flipped the numbers around, right in front of drowsy Floridian’s eyes, a la the gov’t telescreen broadcasts in 1984. (Yeah, I know, it had to be Florida, right?; well guess what: this was <em>long before</em> the 2000 election, pal!)
This begat an investigation on the part of the Collier brothers that lasted for quite a few years, uncovering more and more criminal conduct in connection with U.S. elections, but always their investigation would only get so far and then it was met with stonewalling, obfuscation, and silence from the people you’d think would be interested in these things, people like those in charge of upholding the law, for example. The more they investigated, the higher up the chain of command the election fraud went, and no doubt still goes. It’s a real paradigm-smasher for naive Americans, this book. If you really want to get a peak behind the curtain and get a brief glimpse of the wizard–just a glimpse though–then get this book, and hold onto the armrests of your comfy chair because you’re in for some white-knuckle reading.
This book reads like a detective novel, yet it is quite clearly factually-based. The Collier brothers were accomplished writers as well as investigators. I cannot speak highly enough about this book.
