107. "They weren't going to that much trouble..."
That is the elephant in the room for me. I'll vote for Obama (though he wasn't my first choice, nor was Hillary), but I cannot shake the thought that those who have done violence to the Constitution, have crafted new laws to save their own asses and seen them passed by the Dems, who have followed every page in every playbook known to man with regard to creating a fascist state -- though a "soft" one for the moment -- are going to just say "It was nice" and walk away with a tip of the hat to a new Democratic administration. They've been planning this party for a long time. They've ordered the cake and the Champagne, and they have all the decorations in hand. Why would they just give it all up?

Oh, Canada, why can't we be more like you? Why can't we just have a transparent hand count, which can be accomplished in a couple of days, and actually have a honest election? These computerized elections are designed to distract We, the Gullible into thinking that we're actually being listened to.

And *if* Obama is really sincere in his assertion that he'll review every signing statement and every law passed by the Bush administration, to determine its constitutionality, I greatly fear for him -- and for us, by association.
