Democracy Undone shows how the 2000 and 2004 elections were corrupted, and what we can do to combat fraud this time. Our electoral process is rotten: in their quest for private profit, American corporations and billionaires have progressively undermined our democracy. Money is used to sway elections and to buy politicians who are intent upon conducting our nation's business in their own interests rather than in the interests of the voters who elected them. Today our votes are registered, counted and reported largely by electronic machines produced and owned by private corporations. Those machines produce vote counts that are wholly unverifiable by any means, unless one chooses to consider the vote count "verified" by virtue of the fact that the numbers appear on the machine. When citizens groups, election integrity organizations, or public officials ask to examine the machines for evidence of election fraud, the machines' owners say NO - the machines are "proprietary", meaning that they own them and nobody else has the right to touch them without their permission. Yet most Americans have been led to accept these things as natural or benign. Americans need to be much more skeptical about all these things than they have been. This book describes the many ways in which our election system has been corrupted, from the buying of politicians by billionaires, to the spread of self-serving propaganda by our national corporate-owned communications media, to the counting of our votes by machines that produce unverifiable results, to the massive purposeful disenfranchisement of qualified voters. The author is Dale Tavris, MD, MPH, who has worked as an epidemiologist and public health physician in state public health departments, the U.S. Air Force, the Medical College of Wisconsin, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 1979. He has published dozens of scientific articles in medical and public health journals, and two books ("Philosophy in Epidemiology and Public Health" and "The Unfulfilled Promise of the American Dream").
