    I really feel that the media has pumped up the chances of Obama winning so much that when he loses and I think he will there will be rioting in many areas. With all this media hype these people will feel they have been cheated and many will go to the streets. It is a win win for the media. To them this would be almost as good as a war.

    Just like in all past riots the individuals do not even vote. We have been told how Obama will make everything great for everybody except for the very rich. These people dependent on the government for their survival really believe that lie and they will take to the streets if Obama loses.

    Pretty big difference between being rich and being "dependent on the government". You are aware there's something in between, right?

    Perhaps the right should stop smearing him and go for it fairly if they're worried....

    and, they might try to avoid having police road blocks in certain neighborhoods on election day.

    and perhaps they should concern themselves with:

    Was the 2004 Election Stolen? : Rolling Stone

    you know, that whole appearance of impropriety thang....

    Must not be any new material if we're rehashing this again.

    I was speaking of the ones that will be rioting. People that work don't riot over such nonsense.

    So you actually think that the police were used by the republican party to keep a particular group of people from voting? Sounds like a great report for MSNBC to deal with as I am sure they will get right on top(as opposed to the bottom) of that. You really can't believe that.

    Of course she doesn't. She just wants other, dumb people, to believe it so they'll vote her way.

    No verification was ever found that it happened. It was a STORY created by pissed of Dems who couldn't believe they lost. No matter how many times we recounted the votes, they still lost! Unbelievable! Couldn't be! The police must have been stopping the masses from accessing the voting booths!

    They thought that because that's something they would do.

    But it didn't happen. Nobody came forward to say it happened. It was just an urban myth.

    They also don't riot if they don't think they got screwed. Really simple.

    The roadblocks isn't that uncommon a belief. Heck, I know of campaigns in NY where on election day, no voting machines were delivered to certain neighborhoods to keep those people from voting. So why would it surprise you? Not to rehash, but you can't make people feel disenfranchised.

    Yeah, I remember the white trucker that got the crap beat out of him during the LA riots.

    What started them again? Didn't it have something to do with OJ?

    Anyway, evidence that people don't riot without a GOOD REASON!
    Ha!
