      It is running down to the wire, and a small percent of the crazies are acting up. Scary really!

        It is getting kinda scary out there. Sad that an election has come to stuff like this.

        I live in the middle of Redneck USA. I have to drive someone to vote Tues. evening (a 40-mile round trip). After that, I think I'll hunker down with my guard dogs and guns and munch on some popcorn while I watch the election. lol

    This is just sick.  And we wonder why people commit hate crimes.  Very, very sad.

    Divisiveness is never a good way to bring folks together. On the other hand, it is affective, at creating emotional triggers folks will certainly respond too.
    Where the apathetic folks among us simply stick the heads in the sand, the frustrated take action types. Respond in kind, establishing their own emotional triggers in those they differ. sad

        Salon is infamously wildly liberal.  The mail-based voter fraud was targeted at republicans.  Salon is seeking to lighten the stigma on the liberals who committed this crime.  Their conspiracy theory is absurd.  Typical.

        I was going to make a snide remark about calling in the UN to monitor then I put it into google and got these headlines.

        "UN to Monitor GOP Voter Suppression at Polls" 

        Anyone seen these headlines? I have only seen them on Tea Party and far right sources.

        What on earth is all the vote for revenge stuff, emotional trigger?
        The first time I witnessed Mr. Obama close one of his stump speeches by calling for his supporters, vote for revenge I was flabbergasted.

        That doesn't look good.  I thought the black panther thing was bad. There are a lot of nasty things going on.  They must be targeting the elderly.  I wonder how the aggressive players at the polls know the party affiliation of their victims?  Anyway, if someone tries to stop me from voting I guarantee they'll get knocked on their ass.

        I know in Florida our Republican Governor has done so much to encourage keeping people from voting that there is a lot of investigating going on at the polls.  People were actually being paid in one place to register voters to vote for "their guy"...aka...Romney.  What good is an election if the vote isn't fair!

          Ask obama and all the dead people that voted for him in the last election.  As well as the ones that voted more than once for him.

      Vote/Election fraud is a real issue in spite of what Obama says.
