    i'm gonna post from the centre-left on politics in the political board from here on out till the end of election time, simply because we have hardly anyone around that posts anything about the republican party/bush-cheney reelection that isn't "I HATE BUSH", and i'll honestly say i still strongly vote democrat much more than republican... i sent my florida military ballot in for bush (voted democrat the rest of the way down, mel martinez is another cuban exile who ruins miami and is as fascist as castro is communist) but that doesn't mean i agree with what the republican party and its proxies are doing to get bush reelected.

    Republicans Paying 100 Bucks To Voter Challengers In Ohio

    (yes the dems may do it too but they have a lot more to lose than republicans, historical/factual averages republican voters as mostly white folks, who are reasonably/confidently assured of their rights, the dems have a lot of minorities in inner-city areas who don't trust the police (for good reason in most cases) or authorities and will take flight at the first sign of trouble)

    Yes, because both candidates should be held accountable, but bush should be held more accountable.

    not in my mind, but we all know every kerry team crime is well documented on this website (and congrats on that mind you), but most bush team crimes are not. both are equally accountable, i'm doing my best to equal them.

    Do you think in the real world their transgressions re: voter fraud are equal in volume? And if not, you're intentional balancing act may result in significant skew?

    Let's see - the left will sign up your goldfish to vote. They sign up dead people. They sign up criminals, illegals and incompetents. They sign up the same person in multiple jurisdictions. Their motto is "vote early, vote often". They recruit welfare recipients who are so lazy that Dems will have to go to their homes, pick them up, walk them to the voting booth, take them to McDonalds for a happy meal and then take them home.

    Republicans want voter identification and protection against voter fraud.

    Republicans are therefore guilty of intimidation, coercion and attempting to hijack the election.

    I certainly see your point. :wtf: :dunno: :blowup:

    i love this... we see the world from two very different POV's

    i see a historically beneficial turnout in the Dems favor... the GOP has to counter this the only way it knows how... voter supression, as it has been doing for years.

    i see the prez and the party pleasing the far right base, therefore poisoning hopes for a greater, more permenent majority this time around (not impossible though)

    if the dems had not picked a shitty candidate, and if they ever get good leadership (which isn't impossible), the republicans are going to be in trouble in the senate and the white house one day.

    both sides break the law, but the reality only one side has the most to lose from high voter turnout: the republicans.

    i hear about all these dead voting, illegial immigrants, etc etc. oh well, if i ask for proof i'll likely get some heavily right wing site. just as if i asked for information about republican voting errors, i'll usually have to go to a left wing or left of centre site. we have a major problem in our country with fair and accurate reporting, and there isn't a news service, foundation or organization that has yet to truly convince me it is fair and accurate at all times (a few come close, wall st. journal, chicago tribune, atlanta-journal consitution, MSNBC, The Economist, RAND CORP, etc etc)
