Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I got lambasted pretty good about a previous diary of mine which worried about how big a lead Obama would have to have to survive any shenanigans with voting machines. I was criticized for no evidence or links ( which I am going to correct in this diary).

The thing is, I worry about the fact that almost all of the voting machine companies have ties to right wing Republicans. I am sure if the roles were reversed, and the voting machine companies had ties to people like George Soros, we would not hear the end of it!!
There would be non-stop coverage on Fox News, and most likely CNN and others as well. And yet, we here very little about this situation on the MSM..

And now out comes something that is even more disturbing.........


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

One of the voting machine companies is tied to.......get ready.....Mitt Romney!  How about that sports fans!

Now I don't know about you, but this makes me a wee bit uncomfortable to say the least.  Now like I said in my previous diary, I think Obama's lead is just too big that they won't be able to steal the election by voter suppression or voting machines or any other method....but why are we allowing this situation to exist...It does not bode well for our democracy!!
