    Perhaps the mold from living in his mama's basement smoking peyote so long is frying his abnormal brain.

    I don't support Obama and I think there would be an upside to his losing .. then Americans would finally get serious and DEMAND integrity in our elections.

    This is pretty dumb. They've known for months that the turnout was going to be much, much higher than normal.

    In fact, my most recent blog entry actually discusses (and predicted) this problem in-depth.

    Well it's easy for me to vote.
    I mark my ballot, then cross the street to the courthouse and drop it in their little mail box thingee.

    No lines there.

    Of course, you're white. LOL. I told my black friend that today. He said, "are you taking off early to vote" and I said, "why, i'm white". And we cracked up.

    Hey Allie, I have a thread called Allie blabla. Where I prove what you wanted me to prove. I'll find it and put it up on new posts.

    Supreme court rulings on gore v. wade. Elizabeth Dole being a liar and slanderer is being sued.

    I shouldn't have to do your homework for you, but it's fun proving people wrong. I don't do it for you. I do it for people watching us go back and forth.

    a 2 hour wait is unacceptable, on a working week day....let alone a 10 hour wait....

    we certainly were very aware of the new vast amount of registered voters in the primary, let alone those registering afterwords.

    we have known about the shortages of voting machines divided out that happened in 2004 in ohio....

    and all of the states knew the crowds of people trying to vote, would be huge.

    it is the responsibility of every secretary of state to ensure voting could be done with ease.

    a 10 hour wait on a weekday or any day really, is a POLL TAX imo....for those having to miss a day's work, 20% of their weekly income, to vote....

    and for the elderly, who can't pay the poll tax by standing in the heat or just in line, for 10 hours without risking their health or life doing it....

    care

    Or make it a national holiday. I bet you any amount of money if that were put to a vote, the Republicans would vote against it and the dems would vote for it.

    Then EVERYONE gets to vote. :badgrin::eusa_clap::clap2:

    And I would love to hear their arguments against it.

    The democrats need to put that to a vote in 2011. Play the games the GOP played when they were in charge.

    And say they are not patriotic for not wanting all Americans to vote.
