    How to steal a Presidential election



    http://www.nybooks.com/blogs/nyrblog...voting-wrongs/


    The Republicans’ plan is that if they can’t buy the 2012 election they will steal it.

    The plan, long in the making and now well into its execution, is to raise great gobs of money—in newly limitless amounts—so that they and their allies could outspend the president’s forces; and they would also place obstacles in the way of large swaths of citizens who traditionally support the Democrats and want to exercise their right to vote. The plan would disproportionately affect blacks, who were guaranteed the right to vote in 1870 by the Fifteenth Amendment; but then that right was negated by southern state legislatures; and after people marched, were beaten, and died in the civil rights movement, Congress passed the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Now various state legislatures are coming up with new ways to try once again to nullify that right.

    In a close election, the Republican plan could call into question the legitimacy of the next president. An election conducted on this basis could lead to turbulence on election day and possibly an extended period of lawsuits contesting the outcome in various states. Bush v. Gore would seem to have been a pleasant summer afternoon. The fact that their party’s nominee is currently stumbling about, his candidacy widely deemed to be in crisis mode, hasn’t lessened their determination to prevent as many Democratic supporters as they can from voting in November.

    This national effort to tilt the 2012 election is being carried out on the pretext that the country’s voting system is under threat from widespread “voter fraud.” the fact that no significant fraud has been found doesn’t deter the people pursuing this plan. Myths are convenient in politics. Want to fix an election? No problem. Just make up a story that the other side is trying to rig the election—and meanwhile try to rig the election. (Jon Stewart recently concluded a searing segment about the imagined voter fraud by saying: “Next, leashes for leprechauns.”)
    I thought you nuts and oBAMA had this election in da bag??? I mean, we keep seeing threads by you morons saying it's so. Could it be Lord O's lead isn't really as big as your compliant media says???? So you drag out the "They're gonna steal the election!!" bullshit??? You know something DUmmies??? You must really have a low opinion of the intelligence of your base cause only morons would believe these fairy tales you idiots keep dragging out...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    mfcorey1, what you describe is called an election. You know, people raise money and try to 'tilt' it to their guy. What's your problem?

    My... what a difference one election makes. In 2000 and 2004, Democrats caterwauled constantly about voter fraud because their guy didn't win. Of course, the reality was that our guy won despite voter fraud. Well, now that voter fraud benefited their guy in 2008, suddenly there is no more voter fraud. Convenient.
