The media is helping the Repubs set up for the "steal" by falsely reporting
that Repubs are now ahead in most areas. That's so when the voting is hacked there will not be much outcry because the MSM will have led people to believe that Repbus winning was expected.

2. All the media reports and all the polls I have read have been the opposite.
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 08:26 PM by w4rma
Repubs have been behind in most areas in the polls and the media has reporeted this accurately, except in the Lamont-Lieberman race where they have been using a month old poll when the new poll shows Lamont has the momentum and puts Lamont within striking distance of taking out Lieberman. But there are no electronic black boxes used in CT.

7. i've seen plenty of concern trolls with high post counts this week.
and my own post count is under 1000.

but i lack that one distinguishing troll marker: posts that demoralize, distract, discourage, depress, and dismay Democratic voters and activists.

i am starting to wish DU had a ratings system--5 "troll points" and you're out.

You might want to change the channel from FOX.

12. What is the rule with trolls? Don't feed the trolls.
As far as post counts go, everybody here started with 0.

15. I don't think wholetruth00 is a troll.
I did something that many here do not do before they accuse somebody of being a troll, or a freeper, or a RWer. I did a search on their posts. Wholetruth00 may be misinformed about this, but otherwise appears to be an up and up Democrat.

The rule about real trolls is true. Don't feed them. And just because somebody does not agree with every point of the DU party line, it does not make them a troll. Also, we all may be mistaken at times.

14. Sadly, I agree with you
An American, and at one time, a blindly patriotic American, can not trust that the voting will be counted truthfully and fairly.

If repukes can not win at the ballot box, they steal the ballot box.

16. Any citations to the claim here? As it is posted, it seems pure
conjecture.

17. Locking.
There seems nothing but conjecture here, stated as fact, with no follow up from the Original Poster.

(aside) Please remember, we appreciate members to use the alert function if anyone feels a poster is misusing posting priveleges. Thanks.
