What Are the Odds of Major Election Fraud in '08?

My guess, pretty high.

What you have is it two people coming up with different solutions to the part of a concern that they think is the real problem.
It's like saying "Don't poke me in the eye with you finger" and having someone build a robot to poke you in the eye. They think the problem is their finger, when you meant the problem is the poke.
That's what happens when the a-hole who caused the problem is the one put in charge of solving it.

It'll depend on if the Dems lose again. I wonder if they've already picked the 'controversy' state. There's already been Florida and Ohio, I say the next one should be Texas.

Clinton Freeman said...

Thank you, idea assassin, for proving my point.
You say Democrats make up controversy as an excuse for when they lose. Sane people say disenfranchising citizens is the controversy, and regardless which political party wins "We the People," lose.
The fact some Republicans try to discount votes that aren't for them only proves that they don't really believe in democracy or the Constitution. But who knows they may all already be in jail by 2008.

Well, firstly we don't live in a Democracy, we live in a Representative Republic. Second, it's not like we even vote for President directly anyway. The Electoral College decides. Yeah, they usually cast their votes for whoever wins their State, but they're not obligated to. That's why you can have a President lose the popular vote and still win the election. 2000 was at least the fourth time that's happened.

P.S. The losing side always hollers 'voter disenfranchisment' and 'it was rigged I tells ya,' not just the Dems. It's just the Dems holler it louder.

Here's the thing: I'm more concerned about "winners" and "losers" than I am about justice and democracy. Even if you consider yourself a Republican, I would hope that your allegiance be to an ideal rather than a party. So it's not about being sore losers, but that there is documented proof that disenfranchisement has occurred. And the truth is that a corrupt party has decided it's important to win at all costs. Republican corruption is out of control. This is simply fact.

Blah blah blah. I'm not going to change anyone's mind. Idea assassin, thanks for sharing your opinions here. I won't change your mind; you won't change mine. I appreciate the fact that you post here regardless.

That goes for everyone.

Um, I meant to say, "I'm LESS concerned with winners and losers..."

Matthew said...

Come on, you meant what you said the first time. Don't puss out on me now Laura!

Idea Assassin said...

Thanks for the welcome, but you misunderstand. I'm an independent, not a Republican. I think both parties are equally corrupt and they ARE only concerned with winning or losing. I just think it's silly that the losers always start hollering voter-fraud and disenfranchisement and blah blah blah. It just so happens the Dems are perceived as the party of certain groups of people who feel (not without merit) that they're shit on. So when the Dems lose, you start hearing all the buzzwords. But just remember you're just a vote to these people, they couldn't care less about you past using you to stay in power. And that goes for both parties.

ever notice the bloods and the crips use the same colors as Republicans and Democrats?

The worst part is a company form Venezuela is purchasing one of the voting machine companies(Sequoia Voting Systems). This Venezuelan company is blamed by many of the opponents of Chavez government of fixing the last election in Venezuela.
