it's kinda sad in this country when these are our choices. a whiny party with no ideas, versus a self-righteous party of wrong ideas.
So the Diebold machines that we've heard nothing but negativity about and that were so unreliable in 2000 and 2004 suddenly fixed themselves in 2006?
Maybe the other reason we're not hearing about it is because the traditional complainers won, and hence have nothing to complain about.
i thought you were too busy shotgunning beers and smashing the empty cans on your head to have a thought on politics...hahahahahahaha
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The FBI says it is looking into reports of voter intimidation in several Virginia counties. Jean Jensen is the secretary of the State Board of Elections. She says the FBI is investigating because the State Board of Elections lacks investigative power. Jensen says voters in Covington, Hampton and Colonial Heights and the counties of Accomack, Chesterfield, Northampton and Fairfax reported getting telephone calls in recent days falsely informing them their voting place had changed. Arlington County resident Timothy Daly says he got a phone message Sunday from the so-called Virginia Elections Commission. Daly was told he was registered to vote in New York. But Daly says he has been registered to vote in Virginia since 1998. He says he has filed a criminal complaint with local prosecutors.

I wouldn't mind getting a recipt when I vote.
And it really isn't that much to ask, ATMs seem to have no problem with it and it would help end these discussions. The mountains of problems stemming from electronic voting machines is undeniable.

maybe. if that is the case, why arent the republicans raising hell about it?
or perhaps the dems were just whining in 2000 and 2004 and the diebold machines work ok. besides, i recall them being more enraged at the fact that in certain states, black people were being turned away for no good reason. the people claiming there was a diebold conspiracy are the same kind of people claiming jesus told them personally dubya was the best choice for president.
and i hate to tell jeffbr, but most of the ppl complaining weren't dems.
I just read another post in another thread pre election anticipating the failure of the machines, and I saw the media reports beforehand prepping our subconscious for the possibiltiy of fraud...now, eerily silent.
If you are so afraid of the media and the US govt working together to affect the populace as you have stated in our other thread, then maybe you should fear this election fraud point I brought up. If the Dems lost, we would have heard something about disenfranchised voters, fraud, etc. Seems to me the only party that uses that argument is the Dem Party. And the media is complicet only when it serves them...that is exactly what you should be afraid of, but you aren't because it doesn't fit your agenda.
I just think you would better serve us if you were consistent in your fears, or independent in your thinking, that's all.
no victim mentality
