61. Imagine a scenario where the nation HAD to face this... ( +rec! )
It'd take some kind of almost-magic event but look at what Katrina did.

Any kind of whistleblower seems unlikely as does a police investigation 'stumbling' upon evidence.

It would have to be something incontrovertible to even joe 'red state'.

Perhaps some kind of key that puts each different state's 'scam' into perspective. Some document perhaps which simply has a name and a 'code' of some sort. Unlocking that code would bring the picture into absolute focus when investigators look for CERTAIN clues, rather than probing around in the darkness of who knows how many levels of corruption hiding the acutal culprits.

Surely each state really did have totally different MOs for pulling off their vote scams. Some things might be fairly common, but hidden in different ways in different states. Like the 'classic', using database collection and searching of voters who were known that they wouldn't actually vote and so their votes could be happily, ahem, 're-used' by the wholesale vote-stuffers. A time honored vote scam! Surely at each state's database company there would be some things left accidentally un-shredded if the authorities went in knowing exactly what to look for.

Something that you would hear or see in the news and just blurt out "holy toledo!". Especially if the crime was laid out bare while the criminals were still left to be detected. The only upside to the media syndicate's happy compliance with hyping anything that boosts viewer eyeball-hours, including a fake war like Iraq, is something like that would BLOW their ratings sky-high and to their own ultimate evil-emperor's, their capital-holders, they could say "look at all this free money!!" and let this ** administration maybe actually feel some real heat from the fire -- and maybe, just maybe, tap into some kind of red+blue combo backflip reaction where ALL the american people demand the obvious THEFT be corrected.

You've probably seen the pic this week of ** trying to escape the press in China only to find the doors locked? Perhaps that would be a foreshadowing to how such a fantasy would end. The sad picture of the newly un-declared 43rd president of the US realizing he was used and abused with a better-late-than-never feeling of failure and having been the biggest living lie since good old Mr. Germany in 1945.

When all is said and done, 5 or 6 years of such a roller coaster certainly would leave the country in some kind of weird headspace.

Can't blame me for dreaming!
