Do you trust the Republican Party?

Do you trust the electoral system for counting votes?

These two questions cannot contradict themselves. If you don't trust the Republican Party, you cannot trust the electoral system for counting votes. One is not exempt from the other.

1. If they knocked on my door after midnight claiming their car had broken down, I would call the cops.

No. I don't trust them a whit, nor do I have any faith in our vote counting system.

6. If half the things pulled off by the Republican Party were done in another country

we'd be demanding an investigation and to send in Poll Watchers for future elections in that country. Why is that we can have serious "mistakes" and "glitches" in our voting machines and tabulators and we're supposed to just say, Oh well and move along? Those of us who were upset in 2000 and again in 2004 were pretty much characterized as the Tinfoil Hatters and marginalized.

My theory is that in 2008 they pulled back on stealing the Top Offices because they knew what was coming in the economy and they wanted to hang that around Obama's neck. They were fully aware of the tsunami that was about to smack us and they didn't want a Republican to get stuck with trying to stem that tide. So they just allowed Obama to win it, knowing full well that they'd have a plan in place starting on his first day in office. And that's exactly what they did. They've been planning the 2012 election since Inauguration Night 2009.

So do I trust them? Hell no. Will they attempt a steal this time by manipulating our votes? Only if they are alive and breathing on Nov. 6th. They have already done plenty to try to suppress the vote and purge qualified voters and their final steps will be taking place until the last day of this election.

Just my two cents on it.

All this is happening because there is evil in this world and satan is their ruler.
If we do not congress investigate and correct what is wrong it will continue to be WRONG. One big thing the GOP hates is REGULATIONS or REGULATE since both prevent WRONG.

9. Of course I trust the Republican Party

I trust them to lie, cheat, steal and completely screw over the American people in their slavish devotion to their evil corporate overlords. I trust them to continue their assault on our rights to the point where I will have to get my Representative's permission to get a fucking pap smear. I trust the Republican Party to destroy America and drag the rest of the planet along for the long, hellish ride.

It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.
