Rigged Elections for Romney?

http://www.opednews.com/articles/Rigged-Elections-for-Romne-by-Michael-Collins-121022-13.html

A group of independent researchers caught a pattern of apparent vote flipping during the 2012 Republican primaries that consistently favored Mitt Romney. A form of election fraud, vote flipping occurs when votes are changed from one candidate to another or several others during electronic voting and vote tabulation. (Image: Dean Terry)

Vote flipping is difficult to detect because the vote totals remain the same for each precinct. In one of several possible scenarios, an instruction is given to a precinct level voting machine or to a county-level central tabulator. The corrupted totals from precincts are sent from county election officials to state elections board and published as final results. (Primary documents for this article: Republican Primary Election 2012 Results: Amazing Statistical Anomalies, August 13, 2012 and 2008/2012 Election Anomalies, Results, Analysis and Concerns, September 2012).

The group's analysis is based on raw data from primary sources, local precincts, and state and county election records. The pattern of vote flipping raises serious doubts about the Romney victories in the 2012 Republican primaries in Wisconsin and the Ohio. Apparent vote flipping was demonstrated in the group's paper for at least nine other 2012 Republican primaries as well.

The findings showed a consistent pattern of increasing votes and vote percentages for Romney in the precinct vote tally. The pattern emerges when precinct vote tallies are presented by candidate based on the size of a county precinct.

8. It just hit me today that the amount of TeeVee advertising...

and the overwhelmingly negative, bleak, anxiety-inducing tone of most all of them
isn't solely for the purpose of persuading voters.

The day after the election, we're all supposed to be sooooo relieved that the ad
bombardment is finally over, that we won't want to look or think twice about the
official, announced tabulations.

9. Want to get the republicans to demand paper ballots?

Tell 'em they could have had Newt/Ron Paul/Anybody else as their candidate if Mitt hadn't bought all those electronic machines so he could flip votes in his favor.
