  •  Hey, Sandals (4.00)
    I guess no one has told you yet, but it's the electoral vote that counts - not the popular vote.
    •  i stand by my principles (none)
      Namely that it is the popular vote that should count. Why do Californians and Texans count for so much less than Iowans?

      Furthermore no Democrat president who lost the popular vote would be sustainable.  You can smell the media circus from here. I wouldn't be confident that the GOP would not stage a virtual civil revolt were Kerry have won the election based on winning Ohio and still losing by 2-3 million votes.  

      Not to mention the crippling inability to get anything down with a hostile GOP Congress, nevermind the WOT.

      And it would be milked for all it was worth. How ineffective the Democrats are. Etc etc. Can't you picture it?

      •  Do the math ... (none)
        it only takes 10 fraudulent votes per precinct to win the popular vote by a landslide.
        •  and... (none)
          do you have any evidence that there were 10 fradulent votes per precinct? Deliberately fradulent & all tilted towards Bush?

          Just look at WA state's manual recount.

          •  Actually, (none)
            the exit polls, which were in the past considered reliable [until this election, that is], demonstrated an inexplicable shift toward bush.  

            Not that I want to get into any arguments about what happened; I'm waiting to hear from that congressman who demanded all of the polling data from the pollsters and see how it corelates to the precincts, machines used, etc.

            And I'm with deToqueville on this issue [if I spelled his name right]:  Do you have any evidence that votes weren't fraudulently shifted from k to b?

          •  If I had that then Kerry would be President today (none)
            I made the statement to demonstrate that it wouldn't take much per precinct to steal an election.  I can't remember who it was that originally made the statement, but since it was mainly Keith Olbermann reporting on the election fraud issue, it must have been someone on his show.  This guest actually stated how many votes this would translate to and while I've forgotten the number. I do remember his statement and how shocked I was at how easy it would be to carry this out with simple computer manipulation.
