First they stole Florida, now they're trying to steal Wisconsin.
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 10:09 PM by white_wolf
If we let these people get away with stealing another election, then we can kiss any pretense of a republic goodbye. I'm honestly not sure what we can do of Posser is declared victor, but we can't go quietly into the night like we did when Gore "lost."

2. How can "they"
steal what "they" own? This is just a matter of taking possession of your rightful property. When we start to get that, it is simply a question of how uch we agree to that arrogant pretense and then, what remedies we will resort to in order to revoke that ownership.

It has been done in the past, and here we are again. With the right spirit and purpose, anything goes at this point.

8. Agreed!
What would happen if most of us came to the firm conclusion that this is not "our" government anymore and that these our not "our" laws anymore?

We have a government that, largely, does not represent the people We have laws that only apply to those of us who lack the connections or finances with which to obtain justice. That's a matter of fact.

Why in the hell would we consider our country to be anything above the level of a time share or a place we have to rent from someone who takes profit, anymore? The owners are looking to privatize what we thought were commons. We are on the verge of some sort of eviction, be it concrete or symbolic.

3. Wrong order.
First, they stole Texas and gerrymandered it up and gave it to republicans. Rove installed Bush. Then set Bush up to be POTUS from that springboard. (I also believe it was the test case to steal other states by election fraud).

Then came Florida.

Then came Ohio.

Now, they are attempting to steal Wisconsin--but more along the lines of what happened in Texas than what happened in Florida and Ohio.

But, that is just my opinion.

5. That's the right opinion !
We watched them here in Florida steal it right from under our noses. These things are planned out months in advance. Whatever scenario that goes down, they have a planned response.
Wisconsin is being naive tonight.

6. Good history, but you forgot New Mexico, Arizona, Georgia, and many more.....
which didn't have as many headlines.

10. I still get pissed off about New Mexico
The DEMOCRATIC Governor allowed the voting machines to be erased.

What was so upsetting about it was that it was the perfect place to expose election fraud. I believe it was Dona Ana County had a huge overvote.

Yet, Richardson wiped the machines and helped ruin the country.

Which is why I couldn't support his bid for POTUS--although I do wish he had stayed Governor in NM.

29. Arkansas
Ken Starr's witch hunt in 1996 ended up ousting Governor Jim Guy Tucker (D) and replacing him with Huckleberry Hound.

9. If it matters to you to be able to express your thoughts, shouldn't it matter to you
that you understand the meaning of the words you use?

When you use the word "their" instead of the correct word, "they're", I find myself wondering if you've really paid attention to what you want to say.

Yes, I'm a grammar nag. I think it's important that people understand the structure of the language they're using if they want to express their thoughts clearly.

14. Irregardless, I think the post was affective in conveying it's meaning
"Irregardless" is one of my biggest pet peeves, by the way...double negative and all...in case you were wondering

23. I see the OP has now been corrected. A sincere "well done!" to that.
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 10:54 PM by scarletwoman
My point is, when you are endeavoring to use the written word as a vehicle for expressing your thoughts, it's useful to be fully conscious of the meanings and usage of the words you are using in order to be fully successful.

edit for misspelling - no one is immune, of course. :)

*edit to add: I hope you don't think I'm stalking you, but I'm rather fond of people who are as particular about grammar and proper word usage as I am. At times I feel it's us against the world, so it's nice to encounter a fellow traveler.

26. I'm happy to meet a fellow traveler, as well.
"Stalking" had never occurred to me. I'm only paranoid about Washington, D.C.

22. Yes, and you are powerless to stop them. Republicans are omnipotent.
Resistance is futile. Surrender while they still allow you to survive.

25. I know you are joking, but that is really what they want us to think.
They want us to kneel and call them Lord. I swear if the Constitution didn't forbid titles of nobility, we would be addressing The Sovereign Earl of New York, his exalted Lord, David Koch.

27. Some of us clearly act as if Republicans are omnipotent,
that they are capable of stealing any election at any time. A Democrat can never lose a close election because it must have been stolen by those all-powerful Republicans. Yes, we are obviously helpless before them.

28. If they are they will easily be caught
If an entire city was not recorded in the statewide totals it will be really easy to verify.
