Stay Classy Mitt.

Well that's a subtle way to steal an election.

GAT_00: Well that's a subtle way to steal an election.


Is it really theft if you pay for it?

I keed!

I would want to know just how much of the total fund the voting machine company makes up. And how much influence the fund has on it.

You mean like it was when Bush did the same thing in 2004?

There's too much money on the line not to win this one by any means necessary.

I like how democrats like to spout of idiotic conspiracy theories. Not as bad as birtherism or trutherism, but still moronic

The American plutocracy that began with Bush v Gore,and cemented with Citizens United v US will be complete with a Romney election. At best, an Obama win will stave off the implementation til 2016. Why? Who do the dems have ready for 2016?

We're talking about a party that destroyed a country so that a company the Vice President was was former CEO of could have a no bid contract to rebuild it. Republicans are not known for being subtle about their shadiness.

Andrew Cuomo, Sherrod Brown, Hillary Clinton.

I think Hillary will be done with politics after she leaves. She'll be in her late 60's

Cuomo is the best bet. If we're lucky, Cory Booker is interested in higher office.

Do you believe that Bush stole the 04 elections by rigging machines in Ohio? Do you believe that the corporate America is working to reestablish debtors prison? Hw about destroying very single labor law in existence?

O'Malley from Maryland. My money's on him.

why the fark do we allow private for-profit companies to manufacture these machines? they should be manufactured by a nonpartisan government agency. and every single electronic vote should be backed up by a paper ballot.

AND election day needs to be a national holiday. what could be more patriotic than that? voting is the one thing we do that makes us free. why the fark is it not a national holiday so more people could vote?

...because more people would vote, obviously. and that is bad for republicans.

Its about Sociology. Politics is sociology.

When you have an enemy, whatever your enemy does, no matter how innocent it may be, is automatically a move meant to beat you. I aint saying that these folk arent gonna use it to steal the elections; what I am saying is that people jump to the worst possible conclusion because they perceive everything that the other side does as an attack.

I dont trust these farkers at all. I, however, understand that you should not always assume the very worse.

That is why I brought those up. It is about sociology. People believe that Bush stole the election in 04 because they want to believe it. They will always assume the very worse and used any twisted facts to base their conclusions on.

No sociology would be a discussion about how the hegemonic elite are using their privilege to control the underclass.

This is a thread about how a candidate is buying voting machines.

Did I say that? No, the article said it:


What it all says is that Mitt Romney, with the help of his family and Bain Capital connections, is more than willing to try to take the White House through illegitimate and highly unethical, if not specifically illegal means.

So any evidence of GOP shenanigans (systematic voter suppression, billboards intimidating voters in poor neighborhoods, voter registrations being thrown in the trash by Republican operatives, voting material in Spanish listing the wrong day to vote, etc) cannot be used as evidence in this thread that they're willing to do just about anything, no matter how shady, to win?
