    HIstory.
    .
    Think of all those folks in the past we despise as obstacles to progress. It is a mix of pity at their foolishness and anger at their obtuseness.

    It is coming, this court will be dead and not care, but their families will be embarrassed by the actively bad decisions being made now.

    I remember 2000 when only 5 votes counted.

    What about when the New Black Panther party tried to stop people from voting. What about the lady in Chicago who has been caught voting 5 times for Obama.

    And no asking for an ID is not voter discrimination sorry!

    I would like a reference about the Black Panther party stopping people from voting. I saw video that was supposed to prove this. It was a reporter who kept asking this guy why he was keeping people from voting. He refused to answer. All the while, people were walking in and out of the polling place without intimidation. If this is the evidence that’s out there, I submit it’s not enough. If there is, please provide access to same.

    If we really want to cut down on voter fraud, we need to get voting machines that cannot be tampered with by anyone with 2 year’s computer-programming training. Failing that, we should adopt voting machines that can at least tell you they’ve been tampered with. Best would be to get a receipt when you vote stating what your recorded vote was. If there was suspicion of fraud, we could have a legitimate recount. As it is, we are just supposed to believe what we are told. And an audit provided by a tampered machine will be just as incorrect as the original count.

    Josef Stalin noted that it doesn’t matter who votes or who the votes are for: it’s a matter of who is counting the votes. I submit that easily-rigged voting machines can and will create much more chaos than any individual voter fraud.

    As far as the woman in Chicago voting 5 times for Obama, again it would be good to find proof that is not based on Fox News or Breitbart or any publications owned by Rupert Murdoch.

    And if you do find someone who voted 5 times in Chicago for Obama, how likely would it be to find someone in North Dakota who voted 5 times for Romney?

    There is no evidence that a single voter was stopped by the guys claiming to be “New Black Panthers”. The woman who voted an absentee ballot & then voted on election day (in Cincinnati, btw, not Chicago) will be dealt with by the law. None of this would make a sane person think there is massive election fraud taking place.

    Taxpayer monies have been spent to find out how much “voter fraud” has taken place. It is TRIVIAL. By contrast, voter disenfranchisement is a real and compelling issue, and was HIGHLY visible during the last election — Republican districts having better voting hours, demanding voter ID even when not legally required, intimidation of African-American voters, tens of thousands of people prevented from voting — it’s all there. Why don’t you direct your outrage to a legitimate concern?

    Gerrymandering remains a terrible ongoing fraud perpetrated on the American public. While both parties have participated the right continues to take it to new levels of disenfranchisement. Past time to correct this crap.

    For once Florida did a good job of redistricting for all levels of government.
    The long lines to vote were a separate issue.

    For the Black Panther case the Black Panthers lost then the Justice department threw out the charges so they walked.

    As for your voting machines why not have an ID. What is the big sin asking for one. You can’t even take a bus, or plane trip without one. How about no idea for guns, that means no effective back ground checks.

    The first gun control laws were to stop blacks from getting guns so if you demand ID under the left’s logic dose that not make you a racist.

    Just make a federal standard for election processes. Don’t have local politicians control how their precinct handles what kind of machines or styles of ballots.
    -
    Federal position (president, reps, senators) ballots should be standardized on a federal level, state ballots on a state level, and so on. I, in Maine, should do the exact thing someone in Alaska, Nevada, or Texas does for national elections.

    …and have the registrar issue a free photo voter ID card.

    It could even be a card that brings up a digital photo of the voter, just like they do on cruise ships for passengers re-boarding at a port of call.

    “As for your voting machines why not have an ID.”

    I think this is a separate issue. Doesn’t matter if I am who I say I am if the machine says I voted for people I didn’t.

    This happened to me; I voted at a machine that told me that I had voted for everyone I had voted against. I was able to get that voided and the next time I was told that the machine recorded my vote correctly. Not that I would be able to be sure in either case.

    We’ve had 13 years to fix this problem, and no one in their right minds would say this was no problem in the 2000 election. I still maintain this has much greater abuse potential than an individual trying to cheat a system with millions of other voters. When was the last time someone won a national election by, say, 5 votes?

    And remember that the president of Diebold, the maker of these voting machines, was a large supporter of GWB, and was quoted as saying he would do anything he could to help him win election in 2004. I do not accuse anyone of anything, as I have no proof. On the other hand, you must admit this is ominous, especially considering that if 60,000 votes in Ohio went the other way, we would have had President Kerry. Still, I don’t think one person could have voted 60,000 times and gotten away with it.
