Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sat Sep 22, 2012, 06:04 PM

Listen, I can remember when people were saying, "No way Bush will win! Did you hear what he *said*?"

"There's just no way" and look at what we got.

They aren't even HIDING that they're tracking and disenfranchising voters. They are doing that shit in the plain light of day. This race will tighten because the media needs the ratings.

We can't be complacent. GET YOUR GUN PERMIT TODAY IF YOU LIVE IN A VOTER ID LAW STATE. I honestly think it's the only way you will be able to vote at all.

1. Those people had their heads in the sand...

Bush was winning. They just refused to believe the polls.

I agree that we can't get complacent, and we need to work hard, but Bush was leading at this point eight years ago ... Romney is not in the position Bush was in back in 2004.

2. No, you don't vote with guns. That's just...something.

Romney is the worst candidate in a long time. Obama is one of the best. We are in uncharted territory this year.

3. Actually....

There are some states where you can't vote with, say, a student identification car. But they WILL accept a gun registration.

5. I think what LaydeeBug was saying is that with vote supression, the best way to get some legitimacy

(at least in the eyes of the suppressors) is to have a gun permit.

LaydeeBug mentioned nothing about using guns to vote, per se.

I see where the confusion is though.

7. which is why I think they have something up their sleeve. I can't believe he could've gotten

that rich and it's all smoke and mirrors. Don't get me wrong, I want Obama to win, but we can't get complacent. Bush seemed implausible at one point too.

13. I agree with you

I don't see Rmoney winning but I am worried about the voting machines since they actually made us know they were pushing voter suppression. Still you can only steal a close election.

14. perzactly! And these emm-effers are ALL IN WITH TEH CRAZY.

I mean, if they can steal it (they will certainly try) even by the slightest margin, they are going to scream MANDATE and we will be in for it.
