    And the lack of safeguards meant tens of millions who existed only for the course of Election Day.
    We expect Chicago to do such things. It’s another matter when it’s national, from Maine to California, Florida to Washington.
    It was a fascinating exercise. For example, when Romney was ahead by several million votes, the news was asking why he wasn’t doing his concession speech. My state declared him the winner. In less than an hour, Obama had 54% of the state results (despite the polls already having reported in long before) and the national vote had reversed.
    What is really silly is that despite voting tallies of 140%, 150%, etc. of registered voters in precinct after precinct across the nation, the Republicans are acting like it was their strategy that lost them the election. Well, if they are that dumb, they deserve to lose the next one to cheating, too. Idiots.

    It’s not that we don’t know the over-sized, out-of- control government is cheating, it’s just that we don’t see a darn thing we can do about it. And BTW, are you one of the “idiots” or one of the cheaters?

    Went to my eye doctor of 17 years yesterday. Had to fill out an “Obmacare form” and give them a photo ID to photocopy. So, you need a photo ID to go to the doctor but not to vote. Go figure.

    in this day and age, it should be the popular vote that gets the president elected, and the runner up should be the vice president.
    Make them work together for the good of te country!

    Those are both incredibly stupid ideas. A cursory review of history should answer why.

    It is interesting that 85% of those in the House were elected by less than 5% margins. Close election? With incumbent advantage usually 10%? Or that most of the rest got over 75% margins. The tell tale signs of gerrymandering. Libertarians, barely mentioned in the corporate media rarely get over 3%, while Greens, prohibited from being mentioned at all, get only 1%. Justice and Socialist parties are kept off the ballot in most states and totally ignored. Even the one Socialist in the Senate is required to identify as I, rather than S. Can you say censorship? I didn’t think you could.

    Not to be rude, but where do you get these facts you cite?

    Chris Matthews came up with a good line, the Party With the Fringe On Top.

    Not sure what the comic has to do with politics,( voter fraud, maybe?) but I do have a question to ponder. What political party would Santa be affiliated with? In this day and age, I would imagine The Green(back) party.

    That question is about as stupid as Teresa’s statement.

    I am proud to vote in the one state that has no voter registration. We rely on poll judges who know the voters.
