10. Yes, when all evidence is that the democrats are winning until
the last few hours, and everyone is voting into the ether with no way to check the counting, and the owners of the software pledge to put the Repukes into office, etc., etc, etc.

To not question the veracity of the count is simply being naive and in denial.

Getting closer than anyone expected does not impress me. They're all too happy to allow that, as long as their candidate still wins. To win in spite of all their $$$$ and influence, because the voters are fired up and the votes were fairly counted--that would be impressive.

Those of us who do question it have continuously take grief for doing so and continue to do so because we care about this "democracy", such as it is these days.
