    to a win for Romney if he can get away with it.

    The stakes are high,very high. they will have a long-lasting effect upon our government.

    We don't need to be at each others throats on how this could go wrong.

    Massive protests should be in order if Romney wins by a small margin. That is usually indicative of a hack. We can't sit by like Kerry did and not fight back. The Green Party folks and people in election integrity feel very strongly about this.

    I've spoken to experts in computer security who feel strongly about a possible hack and they are not garden variety conspiracy nuts. They are very skeptical people by nature.

    I see that Citizens Untied has done a lot of damage in misinforming people but Romney is his own worst enemy with his own campaign. He was not well-liked by people in his own party and many well-known Republicans are beginning to speak out against him. That does count for something.

    Plan for the worst. Expect the best.

      monitoring the polls in Ohio.

      I fear election fraud as much as you do, but Ohio is not going to go down the way it did in 2004.  

      The Obama campaign is not the Kerry Campaign.  OFA is on to the GOP's tricks.

      Obama's campaign runs better than his administration.  It's a disciplined military machine out there and although I have no doubt that Atty Gen of Ohio would happily skew machine votes for Romney, it would take a hell of a lot for them to actually get away with it.

      Especially with current poll margins in Ohio as wide as they are.

      I expect election fraud will have a more likely effect in, say, Florida and Colorado, where the margin is smaller and all they have to do is disenfranchise ten thousand or so Democratic voters.
