    Interesting!!! Obama voted early in Chicago and had to show ID!!! Hmmm!!! I guess voter ID doesn’t disenfranchise after all!!! I’ll bet Trudeau voted for Putin and Bi Laden too!!!

    It’s not voter ID that disenfranchises; it’s unreasonable voter ID that disenfranchises.

    The GOP stole the 2000 election, and the shrub did such a lousy job you would think they’d learn. If Mitt wins legit, and does a lousy job, they could say ’don’t blame us, you voted for him’.

    The question has never been ID, only that the Republicans demanded a new ID and most of those can’t afford it and are poor, no car, etc. Usually the ones that would vote Democrat. But idiots like you misrepresent it every time. It gets tiresome in repeating it.

    Voter fraud is such a huge problem that during a five year period in the Bush Administration, when 196 million votes were cast, the number of cases of voter fraud reached 86. Not 86,000. 86. Here’s what that number looks like as a percentage of votes cast. .00004%. Four one hundred thousandths of a percent. This would be called a solution without a problem, but it’s not. It’s just a solution to a different problem. The problem that without unreasonable voter ID the American Taliban, oops, I mean the Republicans, couldn’t possibly win the election.

    Critics of democracy often claim that Hitler was democratically elected to power. This is untrue. Hitler never had the popular votes to become Chancellor of Germany, and the only reason he got the job was because the German leaders entered into a series of back-room deals. Some claim that Hitler’s rise was nonetheless legal under the German system. The problem is that what was “legal” under the German system would not be considered legal under a truer and better-working democracy. In a democracy along the lines of the United States or Great Britain, Hitler could have never risen to power.

    The idea of a democraticlly elected predident was overthrown in 2000 by a political coup fomented by the nazi organization of the Bush/ Cheney cartel. That organization has been working to prevent fair democratic elections ever since.

    Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott® sent a clear message to any United Nations elections observers who might show up in the state to monitor polling places around the country: if you show up in Texas you’ll get arrested.

    In a letter to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, a body created by U.N. charter and tasked with helping ensure the integrity of elections worldwide, Abbott made it clear that as far as Texas was concerned diplomatic poll-watchers were not welcome. “It may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance,” the letter states. “Failure to comply with these requirements could subject the OSCE’s representatives to criminal prosecution for violating state law.”

    There is your Republican mindset at work.

    Shrub won fair’n-square, 5 to 4. People still worry about the ‘horse-race’, but pay no attention to the track conditions. Trusting the counting of the votes to a handful of Republican-run corporations is not just a Bad Idea, it borders on insanity (remember, doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different outcome?)
    There are four things we have to have for a Real Election:
    Who can vote (the List)
    Who DID vote (the Signed List)
    The Chain of Custody (Who’s watching the boxes, just like evidence)
    The Counting itself (watched by Everybody who wants to).
    More at Black Box Voting and The Brad Blog , reminding us of the totally UNverifiable, Easily hackable touchscreen voting machines, and the restricted Sanctum (downtown) of the Tabulator, accessible only to the Corporate Priests. Stalin got it right; “It doesn’t matter Who Votes, what matters is Who Counts the votes!”

    The right to vote is an important one, worth defending. However, voting will not produce an answer to the global capitalist crisis of overproduction. Only revolution will cure the madness.
