Kremlin planning to rig election
This policy of Glasnost, or "openness", is quite a change from the old Iron Curtain days. These days, they still have hand-picked successors running the government, but they're much more open about it than they were in the days of Stalin. Now, they hold sham elections and openly dictate the results of the elections.
The Kremlin is planning to falsify the results of this Sunday's presidential election in Russia by compelling millions of public sector workers to vote and by fraudulently boosting the official turnout after polls close, the Guardian has learned.
Governors, regional officials, and even headteachers have been instructed to deliver a landslide majority for Dmitry Medvedev - Russia's first deputy prime minister, whom President Vladimir Putin has endorsed to be his successor.
Officials have been told they need to secure a 68% to 70% turnout in this weekend's poll - with around 72% casting votes for Medvedev. However, independent analysts believe the real turnout will be much lower - with between 25% and 50% of the electorate taking part.
It's obvious their shadowy overlords don't have the Diebold "Electronic Fraud Assurance"® technology in their polling stations.
