It Could Happen: Obama Could Steal The Election
The way the US's election system is set up and run, anybody could convince the owners of the machines to program the machines to make anyone they desired into the winner. All it would take is enough money. The programming is the easy part.

The trail of such a theft would be easily buried.

Agree?

1. One can not steal that which is his.

3. The people that steal it for the repugs don't do it for money...
For them it is ideology, in particular abortion. The end justifies the means to them. So I doubt they could be paid off to change their alliance. Obama's best use of the money is in exposing them.

4. Can't argue that
...except to say that they are such cretins that anything is possible with them. No honor among theives, and all that.

My point is that theft is always a possibilty the way things are set up.
