One isolated idiot does not voter fraud make.  When exit polling agrees with poling and expectations and yet you beat expectations by just enough to carry Ohio, that reeks of voter fraud.  That was bush 2004.  Cry me a farking river Ohio Republicans.  You did everything you could to disenfranchise people and you wonder why people went out of their way to make sure you couldn't not count their vote?

BarkingUnicorn: dittybopper: Highroller48: The plural of Anecdote is Data

That's actually true.  Data is a collection of individual anecdotes.  It may be skewed data, depending on how carefully the anecdotes are chosen, but at it's heart that's what polling is:  The collection of anecdotes.

There is a difference between "29% of people said they carry a gun" and "29% of people were observed carrying guns."


That's true, and it absolutely does *NOT* contradict what I said.

Voter early, vote often...especially in the ghetto where you can't report it without being called a racist, and with union members where you can't report it without disappearing.

Funny how some of you claim to know the details on the levels of voter fraud in the country.


The conservative position is to create a billion-dollar program that would cause a huge disenfranchisement problem IMMEDIATELY, on the hopes that it MIGHT reveal the severity of another problem that MIGHT already exist, at some point in the future? On a scale of 10-10, how stupid is this?

FTA:   She appears to have used her position as a poll worker to cover her tracks.

And she did a bad job at the whole track covering part.

And yet, even without a voter ID system she's being investigated. It's almost as if the current laws work.

Now, if we require you to show ID for all gun purchases - well, that's just a horrible infringement on your rights.

Right?


I don't think so. I think both should be necessary. We can have a country that requires ID for important transactions and not become a "show me your papers" state. Many European countries have found that balance, so can we.

I realize you're being sarcastic. Yours was just a great post to respond to.

I was so hoping he had some studies which showed the levels of unaddressed voter fraud.  Alas, just like every other time I ask neocons for scientific evidence, I'm left wanting.

Because acknowledging the fact that Obama received 93% of the black vote in 2012 makes a person racist? You're like a bizarro world tea-tard where you distort reality in the opposite direction to stay within the confines of your political correctness.

factcheck.org

The Democratic candidate has been getting the lion's share of the Black vote for awhile now. Acknowledging facts that have already happened is quite different than predicting future "likely" outcomes. Hillary Clinton was getting the majority of the Black vote in the 2008 Democratic primaries for most of the race--not Obama. If someone is projecting specific voting patterns based on general ethnicity alone that is indeed race-baiting at the very least. As often is the case, the more lazy the generalization the more racially encoded content will show up. There are strong sociological reasons in the U.S. for that.

You will be the one crying. I left communism years ago and recognize it easily.
After only four years of his policies, I know where he is going. Maybe you think the poor will be better off. They won't. They never are when the producers stop producing for lack of incentive. When you punish success, you get less of it. The poor will be poorer and the rich will be gone or poor too.
First term and the real unemployment is closer to 14% if everyone who had jobs when he was sworn into office, had not given up looking for work. Gas has doubled in price since he took office. Also, Obamacare will make 30 hours be a full time work week. Everyone is more poor already.

Darn it! And there I was liking some of the ideas that work there. Not all, by any means. But, if something works there, and if it can fit into our way of living (demographics too) why not give it a shot?

JohnnyApocalypse: I think it's because of our old friend "the echo chamber". This has been hyped up on conservative sites and stations for a bit now. Those conservatives who visit those sites and stations are primed with this mindset. So when they get here, they discharge what they've been filled with. I myself - a FARK INDEPENDENT (tm) - have experienced this in talks with a fairly conservative, rational guy who morphed into foaming about the truth of "those people" voting multiple times with impunity. And of course, he saw it on Drudge or some such.



And they assume everyone has the same kind of specious reasoning... It's like how you had that ex-GF who was always suspicious and accusing you of cheating - only to find out they were the ones cheating on you, they just assumed you must be doing the same thing to them.

My dad is one of these echo-chamber guys... I corrected him on something the other day, and told him he needed to step out of the echo chamber once in a while for some air. Later on he was accusing me of the same thing when I questioned some fauxtrage or another - but in retaliation it made no sense. I'm a non-partisan political independent, but folks who are so heavily invested in the industry which feeds them flattering worldviews just assume the rest of us share that same ideological defect. That we all seek out source who tell us only what we want to hear.

But this in here is just... I don't know how those conservafarkers could even stand their own horseshiat in this thread since it's so egregious. Literally almost every single person in the thread has been saying that she should be investigated and prosecuted if the allegations are true - but conservafarkers got all pissy complaining that no one wants her to be prosecuted. Exaggerating the importance of this story is one thing - it's a stupid thing, but at least that's got some kind of logic to it. But just straight up denying reality.... it's somewhere in between a baldfaced lie and a delusion.

Perhaps what they're doing is an experiment in some new type of propoganda combining attractive lies and willful delusion - a deliesion, if you will.

I'll admit to not understanding your response. I agree if someone says that a black person is likely to vote for another black person, because the candidate is black, then that's purely racially motivated and has no basis in reality. We know Obama's party affiliation though (obviously), so saying a black person is a likely Obama voter I would image would be because he's a democrat, not being black. If the latter that person is more importantly stupid than racist.

I have no doubt there are people who say that as a subtly racist comment, but lets not let our own racial sensitivities blind us to reality.

This is you know you're talking to a conservative. You're willing to cause false positives to prevent false negatives.

Put another way, you simply don't care who gets hurt in the quest to make sure NO ONE is getting anything they shouldn't, regardless of the magnitude. The same kind of people who want stricter controls over meal assistance to make sure that kids who aren't THAT hungry aren't getting taxpayer dollars, even if actual hungry children are being removed from the rolls.

I know racists don't like context (it's hard to make the case that black people are all criminals when you're forced to take generations of blatantly racist sentencing into account), but it's a factor here.

How ridiculous. If I asked you right now which candidate in 2016 is likely to get the majority of the black vote in 2016, would you pick the Democrat or Republican? If you pick the Republican you're an idiot.

Using historical trends to say the same about an individual I could see being interpreted differently, and probably shouldn't be done, but unfortunately reality doesn't give a shiat about your feelings.

Well no in the first example I meant it in the context of talking about pre-election polling, in which you could use the term "registered democrat" interchangeably with "likely Obama voter" without being a racist shiatbag.
