Weaver95: I don't think we'll ever see a repeat of that scenario. SCOTUS only gets to pull that trick once a century.

Technically, 2000 was part of the 20th century.

Rug Doctor: Weaver95: vpb: Weaver95: Sad to say but it's almost necessary these days. I choose to look at it this way: I'd rather slug it out in a courtroom than have a running gun battle in the streets over election results.

Right, we'll save that until the Supremes make Romney the president like they did with shrub.

I don't think we'll ever see a repeat of that scenario. SCOTUS only gets to pull that trick once a century.

We'll see. One of my deepest, most tinfoily fears is that it could happen again and then the Republicans would just go hard-core "Why do you hate America?" on anyone who questions it, like they did after 9/11. I've seen nothing in the past 12 years to suggest that the Dems wouldn't back down again under the right circumstances.

If that happens, I hope we see a few years worth of old-fashioned rioting, like we had in the 1960s.

Rioting like they had in France, 1787-1789, would be better.

Rug Doctor: doyner: How exactly does one recount electrons?

I believe you've hit upon the entire strategy. One of my buddies works with the voting machine industry, and he swears there ARE ironclad ways to allow for a recount. But they aren't actually using them.

I don't want to sound like a Freeper, but how could that possibly be unless it's deliberate? We have the technology to review bank transactions going back decades, but we can't review votes cast 24 hours ago?

Sounds legit.

Of course it's deliberate. Diebold cannot release the proprietary code for their voting machines without the competetion unfairly stealing their ideas and their money. The ability to have a group of people individually cast votes electronically, have those votes counted, and announce a winner is patented Diebold software.

Which is why they should sue Drew over the inclusion of the smart/funny buttons.

It would be EPIC if it was too close to call, went to SCOTUS, and was ruled that Obama is president.......just to hear all of the butthurt Republicans turn into hypocrites.
