I'm more concerned about some weisenheimer cracking the voting machines just for the lulz.

Normally I'm not much into conspiracy theory but I've been thinking about this for about a year. The only reason the GOP would shiat the bed like they have in the last year and remain confident is the possibility that they have figured out a way to steal the election. Just saying'.

Impossible. They don't have any experience with trying to steal an election.

Considering this is pretty much the same logic applied in 2008, if anyone's haxxing dem machines, wouldn't it have to be Democrats? Accusations of voting fraud seem to have zero correlation with the actual results. The only case with merit is the Florida Gore/Bush debacle, and that was an issue of horrible usability rather than rigging.

/Or, you know, no one

Why did this story only come out after Obama crapped out in the debate and Romney finally passed him in the polls?

Not a Romney fan, but "excuse making" already?
 
2012-10-11 08:39:14 AM
A lot of Americans will not give a damn about this because they simply believe such a thing would never happen. That is terrifying, as I assure you it would and could happen. Worse yet, bringing it up now is probably just a strategy to take the focus off it further down the road.
 
2012-10-11 08:41:20 AM
Romney stole election because he is white rich man.
 
2012-10-11 08:42:14 AM

Setting up those excuses early, are we?

Republican wins) Dems: "They stole the election!"

Democrat wins) Repubs: "Damn! We lost!"

 
2012-10-11 08:42:20 AM
Not a conspiracy theorist either, but ever since Florida in 2000, I am not sure what to believe anymore. And this story, as presented, does seem troubling.

It could though, just be a very well crafted article designed to scare people. I hope it gets de-bunked or proven accurate soon as opposed to just languishing out there only to be brought up every now and again when convenient.

And I hope it is not true.
 
2012-10-11 08:42:21 AM
Can you imagine how this article would be written if there were connections to a company that Obama was associated with:

"Voting machines completely corrupt!! Contain software written by Obummer himself ... in Muslim!!!!"

/yes I know that Muslim isn't a language much less a programming language ,,, but Freepers don't
 
2012-10-11 08:43:22 AM
This is moonbat conspiracy theory.

The real stealing of the election: making sure that non-citizens, criminals and the dead can vote, because they all want those Democrat benefits.

Liberal parties, from the Bolsheviks to the French Revolution, have always been without honor.

This is because liberalism is a mental disease transmitted through misery.
 
2012-10-11 08:43:23 AM
If you're not capable of creating and implementing effective domestic and foreign policy, blame the voting machines when you lose!
 
2012-10-11 08:43:26 AM
The right-wing's been b*tching that Bain has contributed about $120,000 to the Obama campaign, so . . . Oh, what's that? Bain executives have contributed about $5 MILLION to Romney? Oh. Well, never mind.

Oh yeah, that's exactly what they're going to say. They won't mention at all their blather about voting fraud which they've been trying to legislate against for the past two years.
 
2012-10-11 08:44:54 AM
No proof of e-voting machines ever being hacked ergo this is a made up problem.

Even simpler put, there are more cases of voter fraud than there are voter theft.

don't blame me for applying the logic put forth by anti-voter ID folks to their own pet conspiracy theories.

DO NOT VOTE. It only encourages the bastards!

All election fraud, and indeed all fraud of any kind, is perpetrated exclusively by Democrat Liberals because, being Muslim-friendly Atheists, they have no morals whatsoever and not only that, but also.
 
2012-10-11 08:47:46 AM
Acorn: Voter fraud is extremely rare in America and these are unfounded accusations made by sore losers.
Bain: ZOMG! THEYS STUFFIN OUR BALLOT BOXES AND STEALINGS OUR ELECTIONS!!

So many conservatives in here that are no longer concerned about the integrity of the voting process. Makes me think they aren't really serious about all those bogus voting laws they're pushing in those same swing states.

A lot of Americans are paranoid and they simply believe such a thing always happens. That is terrifying, as I assure you no one has ever found it to have actually happened. Worse yet, bringing it up now is probably just a strategy to focus on it now so it can be an excuse down the road.

acad1228: Setting up those excuses early, are we?Republican wins) Dems: "They stole the election!"Democrat wins) Repubs: "Damn! We lost!"


No, more like

(Dem wins) Repubs: Voter fraud! Change all the rules! Redistrict! They're only voting for him because he's black! Dismantle the entire party and reform as "independents" with even more extreme beliefs, then run as Republicans-who-aren't-Republicans! And when you win by calling the other guy a socialist nazi muslim black panther Kenyan, do everything you can to halt the political process until the next election so you can get the black guy out of office!


I think that's a better summary.
 
2012-10-11 08:49:29 AM
I want to point out that we hashed this all out last election with the Dibold machines. That election resulted in a Democrat White House, House, and Senate. If the GOP is waging a secret campaign to steal votes through voting equipment, their track record is awful.
 
2012-10-11 08:49:41 AM
It's not whose machines register the votes. It's whose machines count the votes.

Really? After 2008 I seem to recall something about birth certificates and ineligibility.
 
2012-10-11 08:50:36 AM
I thought that said "vomit machines."
 
2012-10-11 08:50:47 AM
Time Warner is one of the biggest Obama contributers. If you want to talk about donors trying to influence an election, i'd be much more worried about some mass media outlet viewed by millions of people for years than some voting machine whose programming and mechanics can be scrutinized prior to the election.

Mrbogey: No proof of e-voting machines ever being hacked ergo this is a made up problem.


There were several reported instances in 2000 of voting machines being pre-loaded with Bush votes. Look it up. (Hint: put "Diebold" somewhere in your Google search.)

Not being concerned about the integrity of the voting machines is not the same as being concerned about who is voting. Dems are concerned that the machines are rigged, Repubs are concerned about who's pushing the buttons on election day.

Not to mention the sheer implausibility of it all. That somehow these companies, which can barely make working voting machines, have found a way to network all these machines together to secretly steal the vote, is beyond credibility.

However, Democrats sneaking in the dead, fake voters, criminals, illegal aliens, former aliases, etc. is standard practice.

As usual, the liberal tells ten lies while complaining about one fake moonbat theory. Liberalism is a mental disease spread through misery.

yea, and did they influence the election? Nope. Try again.

How exactly do criminals and illegal aliens vote?

I was distracted by the bisexual congresswoman at the bottom of the page.
 
2012-10-11 09:00:42 AM
It's hard to find a company that is not in some way owned or operated by Romney or Bain Capital. Take me for instance, in 1998 Bain Capital purchased majority shares in me, restructured me, and then sold me to the highest bidder.
 
2012-10-11 09:01:33 AM
I've never trusted e-voting. Once my ballot is entered, the 1's and 0's can be manipulated into whatever.
 
2012-10-11 09:01:59 AM
Ah, yes. No evidence of wrongdoing, but that doesn't matter.

The groundwork for the Democrat conspiracy theories is being laid, just in case they lose.

If they win, this will go down the memory hole.

If they lose it will become a cononical part of all future shrieking about Romney.
 
2012-10-11 09:03:10 AM
I see they're gearing up for the fraud/race card.

Sami Mnaymneh - donated to Mitt Romney's campaign as well as Barack Obama's campaign

Guess who doesn't get invited out to the country club all that often?

Bret Wiener - donated exclusively to Mitt Romney's campaign for 2012; donated initially to Mitt Romney and then to Barack Obama during the 2008 election


encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com

His nick name in high school was 'Bent" He showed up at the high school reunion with a couple of thugs who beat the former football players up.

Cythraul: How exactly do criminals and illegal aliens vote?


By obtaining someone elses name, address and birthday. I admit, it's a hassle, but it is an easy enough matter that it kind of worries me. Maybe we could consider putting a photo on your voter registration card.
 
2012-10-11 09:04:49 AM
ZOMGWTFBBQ! Voting machine company was bought out in large part by HIG Capital. HIG
has ties to Bain...and to Romney...and donated to his campaign fund and...and...

Well...I was going to say that they also donated to Obama's campaign (which they did,
to the tune of at least $40k), but the lion's share of donations do tend to skew toward
Romney.

Does it raise eyebrows? Sure...or if not, it should. But no more so than the bin Laden
movie that's coming out - coincidentally - 2 days before the election.

There's a LOT wrong with how the gear-up to this election has gone.
