Kos: Fraudsters, take your shit elsewhere

Daily Kos:

Daily Kos is a reality based community. As such, I have a zero-tolerance policy for conspiracy theories.

So, for example, if you believe that Karl Rove was set to use a GOTV app called Orca to steal Ohio, because some random shlub on the interent claimed so (even though Orca was a Romney campaign boondoggle, and Rove ran a whole separate boondoggle Super PAC called Crossroads), then either 1) shut the fuck up about it, or 2) go spread that nonsense somewhere else.

...snip...

Finally, if you are so willfully ignorant that you don't know the difference between voter suppression (making it difficult for people to vote), and election fraud (changing election results), then you really don't belong here.

The former is a real concern, and the real way Republicans are trying to alter election results.


Not that it'll change anyone's minds here, but hope springs eternal...

2. I work in the IT field and there are a dozen ways electronic elections could be..

tampered with. And if they think you must have a internet connection to do it they would be sadly mistaken.

If you count your votes on electronic voting machines don't be shocked when they aren't.

3. Exactly. But those sand drifts are appealing to many heads that should know better.

Or, evidently, learned nothing at all by watching Rove and Cheney in action all those years.

4. I could not agree more. Einstein said, the difference between genius and stupidity is that

genius has its limits

8. Must be nice to have your own soapbox from which to bark at

passing cars. Civil discourse anyone?
