In response to 'The Matrix Hides Electoral Fraud', by Diane Perlman:

While I will not take issue with her claims that Bush won the 2004 election through vote fraud, Diane's theory that 'white, US born males are more emphatic about accepting the outcome and the futility of challenging it, while others are more willing to recognize being dominated and are open to questioning what happened' is poorly supported by the evidence.

The two presidential candidates responsible for the Ohio vote challenge, Michael Badnarik of the Libertarian Party and David Cobb of the Green Party, are both 'white' (the popular catch-all term used to lump together people of extremely diverse backgrounds and cultures from Siberia to the Azores as if they were a monolithic group).

In Congress, Ron Paul (R-Texas), another 'white' man, is the most consistent opponent of the big government statist (not a typo -- look it up) quo which enables the vote corruption we have seen by the two-party cartel. (As Diane's article implies but does not directly state, the problem is not just Republicans, and is not new; it is widely suspected that Mayor Daley of Chicago stole the election for JFK in 1960.)

Rep. Paul is seen as such a threat that the Republican leadership opposed him in the primary election in which he ran for the open seat he had formerly represented, even though he was the strongest candidate they had and ultimately went on to regain his seat and win reelection several times against Democratic opponents (who, like the GOP leaders, attempted to make hay with his opposition to the 'war on drugs' and other anti-establishment positions). Has the Democratic Party leadership similarly backed opponents of Barbara Boxer, John Conyers, or Stephanie Tubb-Jones?

As a matter of fact, 'white' males are disproportionately represented in many of the alternative movements challenging the statist quo, the Libertarian and Green parties prominently among them.
