    No way, the majority of Americans will not accept a rigged election.

    Surely it's unbecoming of Americans to accept ' a rigged election '. All democratic peoples' eyes are on the Presidential election in America.

    We already did, in 2000, when Dubya lost the popular vote, and his brother manipulated the tally in Florida so he'd win the electoral vote.

    Al Gore challenged the election results, and Dubya was ruled the winner in a partisan vote by the Supreme Court.

    We ended up with one of the dumbest presidents on record, and we survived.

    Not when the media bias, government interference and elites' contempt is this obvious.

    And there are conservative outlets already saying if he doesn't win, don't accept it.

    When the LAW AND ORDER party says ignore the government because it is a sham, the feds have lost all legitimacy.

    The 2000 election was rigged and nothing was done bout it, 2004 also and during the '04 democratic convention Clinton proclaimed Obama as the next democratic president so his election was rigged, in that light I would say a definite YES!!! 

    Because of it, I just Tweeted:  Elections unconstitutional, the U.S. government TREASONOUS, http://prop1.org/protest/elijah/democracy.htm … is how We The People must stop it before 11/8/2016.

    If Trump wins the popular vote and loses to the electoral college "we the people" are obligated to protest. That will prove that the election may be rigged to make sure the Democrats keep power which they have now. NOT just my opinion, Greg.

    So-called rigged elections start with the process of gerrymandering, where voting districts are realigned so as to favor one political party over the other. So far as one can determine, most Americans seem resigned to live with this usurpation of their voting rights, so it's hard to imagine them getting all that upset by an election "rigged" to the extent currently envisaged by political scaremongers.

      Actually, rigid elections began when they didn't elect presidents & vices per amendments 12 & 24 [Congress per Art, 1.2.2 & 1.3.3] after electors chose them, the people elect 1 each for their state & 1 each in the Nov. election by the
