mediablitz: Not ONE "conservative" in this thread is willing to admit this is at MINIMUM sketchy. Or admit if it were Obama rather than Romney, it would be a national crisis from the right.

Not a farking SHRED of honesty from any of you "conservatives".


I'm a conservative and I admit that if this was Obama I would have a hard on 24/7. I swear on the grave of the great Ronald Reagan that we will bring Obama to justice. Not to say that us conservatives are not without compassion. We would allow Obama to serve out his sentence in his home country of Kenya. There he would be cast into the Pit of Carkoon, the nesting place of the all powerful Sarlacc, were he will be feed fried chicken and water melon. After that we would get a rope and drag him behind a pickup truck until he was dead. Dead. Dead. Rap him in a Confederate Flag and hang the body from a tree for the good children of the South to witness the death of first and last black man to sit in the WHITE House. God bless America.

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.

Yeah, I'm sure if Michelle Obama purchased voting machines in a swing state you and the rest of our friends on the Right would smile and say "oh, that's nice" instead of screaming bloody murder.

So let me get this straight... The Romney family buys up a bunch of voting machines and, for some of you, your first reaction is, "The Democrats are bad and they're trying to steal the election."

Take a step back and think about that for a moment... here it is again... to help it sink in:

//Poor Romney - all he has are slacker trolls to champion his cause


I'm not sure if I have ever met someone who actually supports Romney. I've met plenty who are voting against Obama though, which is a slightly different thing.

No, actually i saw a whole bunch of folks that were happily supporting the man and his plan.
Bonus: Downtown at the busiest intersection, cars honking.

Kind of disturbing, really. They weren't just "voting against Obama."


Fascinating. I wonder what they thought his plan was.

Brainsick: Washington state here, already completed my ballot. I love this system...I got to look up the local candidates and ballot measures on my laptop, and vote whilst sitting on my bed. America. F*ck Yeah.


Vote by mail is fantastic. Oregon here, just received my ballot today. Will set aside some time to complete it tomorrow and take it to the ballot drop a few blocks from my house (saves me a stamp).

The President will get my vote (though he'll win Oregon with or without it). Looking forward to giving a finger to the war on drugs, also - voting yes on Measure 80.

Mrbogey: ghostmorphine: I agree they are more rational, but I think FOX and the GOP have mastered the art of acting pissed off to get people fired up to go out and vote.

This thread and half the politics tab hasn't convinced you otherwise? That takes some effort to hold onto that belief.


Actually, the politics tab is a great place to see the consistent lack of rationality within the GOP. Not as good as FOX or Free Republic, but pretty damn good nonetheless

1. By 2016, there just won't be enough stupid angry white men left to vote as a gop block. This is the republicans' last chance to play the old "southern strategy" before it's no longer viable.

2. I think Biden is proving to be quite a viable candidate. Just keep him supplied with a continuous feed from a Dairy Queen soft-serve machine and he'll be unstoppable.

Saturn5: Democrats didn't have a problem with electronic voting machines in 2008.


Weeeell thats not exactly true. But in any event if somebody with close ties to the Obama campaign had been buying voting machines for use in swing states we would all have heard all about it.

As we should have.

Has this story been covered yet by the progressive mainstream media (MSNBC, HuffPo, Kos, etc)? I'd like to get some confirmation from more reliable sources before I freak out.

If it is true that the goddam son of a Presidential candidate owns the voting machines in Ohio I hope he gets nailed to the wall. I don't give a shiat if Tagg and his company are pure as the freshly driven snow, it's farking unethical as hell.

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?
