"Watch for the Steal"

The picture above pretty much tells the story of utter KOmmie stupidity. If you have trouble reading the wording, then click on the picture. The words supplied by the KOmmie at the bottom of his election receipt say: "Even if you took this as proof that (full name of voter here) voted - it's hardly proof of who (full name of voter here) voted for." Um, that's why it is called a SECRET BALLOT. If they could give this KOmmie voter a receipt of who he voted for then it wouldn't be SECRET. And yet this KOmmie is convinced this is part of an EVIL Republican plot to steal this year's election on November 5 as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Watch for the Steal." So let us now watch the KOmmies worry themselves silly about a stolen election in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering if he can cast a ballot to nominate John Edwards for VICE President at the Democrat convention, is in the [brackets]:

Watch for the Steal

[The man behind that Guy Fawkes mask is...KARL ROVE!]

On the day before leaving for Netroots Nation, I voted for Jim Martin for U.S. Senate in the July 15 General Primary Election here in Georgia. At the polling place I was the only voter but there were a dozen or so poll workers. After voting (on one of those damned Diebold machines) I asked if I'd get a receipt. In lieu of one I was given a cute little sticker with a graphic of a Georgia Peach with 'I’m a Georgia Voter' printed on it. I laughed and said that makes me feel better...there were some chuckles. I said I wanted a receipt for my vote. This is what they gave me.

[You can see a scan of that receipt above in which moron KOmmie complains that it didn't say who he voted for. I guess the concept of SECRET BALLOTS is too tough for KOmmies to comprehend.]

So I asked, "How do we know that our votes are being accurately counted?" There were some uncomfortable looks but no one said anything. I said, "After the last two presidential elections ya have to wonder." To my surprise there were quite a few murmurs of agreement.

[If I see someone holding up the voting line on November 5, then I will know that it is a paranoid KOmmie or DUmmie with a chip on his shoulder.]

Will the Republicans try to steal the upcoming presidential election? You bet your ass they will.

[You bet. We already have all your Diebolds set to the R position. Of course, we won't be giving you any receipts stating who you voted for.]

There is one thing we should know with complete certainty - the Republicans will definitely try to steal this election. It’s how they play the game, it’s what they’re good at, they’ve gotten away with it twice - they don’t know any better. The only real questions are: have we found the courage to stand up to them, and can we stop them?

[Already getting your excuse ready in case of an Obama loss?]

Watch for the steal.

[We're watching you provide us with yet more comedy entertainment. And now to hear from the other paranoid KOmmies...]

Paper ballots and hand counts are the only answer.

[But after the 2000 election the Left was screeching for electronic voting.]

I was just about to vote for Edwards when he dropted out, and I was able to cast my first, but not last, vote for Obama.

[Hopefully you will be able to vote for Edwards on November 5.]

Intimidation at the polling place can be monitored - at least it happens in public.

[I promise no intimidation of clueless KOmmies when they vote on November 5.]

When I voted absentee once... I put my ballot in a sealed envelope that did not have my name on it. Then I put that envelope in a second one that did have my identifying information on it.

[Aha! But did you put the second envelope in a third one without your name and then place that in a fourth envelope with your identifying information on it?]

One of the worst examples of election theft was in GA in 2002, when there was a sudden violent swing in Saxby Chambliss' vote as compared with all the pre-election polls. Cleland was supposed to win comfortably, but it's clear to investigators (like Thom Hartmann) that thousands of votes were simply switched.

[And everybody knows those polls, especially exit polls, are 100% accurate.]

We need U.N. supervision to ensure free, fair elections. Seriously, that is what the Republican party has brought us to ...

[We'll send the Zimbabwe delegation to your voting station.]

Know what? I see a lot of talk in various places, about overt physical revolt if it happens again this time. Maybe we should let all the Democrats in Congress know about that, and the Obama campaign know about that, just so they take it seriously and don't back down if it happens again. Obama has to NOT CONCEDE if it appears that McSame has "won." He needs to have lawyers at the ready, to go after every single instance, every single report, and file suits in as many jurisdictions as needed to force this issue into the open.

[No matter what the election result, we need to lawyer our way to victory.]

I also live in CA which is very liberal. I used to be a repug. It's a long story which I will not repeat, but in 2004 I voted for Kerry as a result of my discovering DailyKos. I went to bed that night knowing that Kerry had won. I woke up the next morning and cried.

[I loved looking at pics of crying KOmmies who woke up to a Kerry loss in 2004.]

the reason they can't give you a receipt saying who you voted for is that we have a secret ballot, which doesn't only protect your privacy but also prevents you from selling your vote by making it impossible for you to prove that you followed through on the deal in the privacy of the ballot box.

[And this KOmmie WINS a Kewpie Doll for having a brief moment of mental clarity!]

I bought a 69 cent donut this morning. The donut shop cash register keeps a spool with a complete list of every receipt that is printed. The second copy of the receipt was handed to me along with my change. Now, if that were a ballot I could read it and see my vote for '1 glazed' and then deposit it in the official ballot box for counting. Of course, the cash register can already provide grand totals at the end of the day, but the spool of receipts is there for backup. All this for a donut.

[Your brain is like the 69 cent donut you bought. Both have holes in the middle and both are glazed.]

Look, machines without receipts are insane

[So are voters without ID.]

I am so pissed off right now that I can barely comment on anything. While the Democratic leadership has let me down, big time, I am so angry at Republicans that I can barely speak these days. I have friends who I love very much who identify as Republicans and I just cannot even deal with them right now. Heaven help us all. And may we all help ourselves. Work for this victory as if your life depends upon it--it may very well. I'm not blogging so much these days as I am getting previously disengaged people registered and in some lucky cases, engaged. I just can't take this shit anymore.

[You are going to be FUn to watch on election day, November 5.]

I don't understand why cameras can't be placed in the voting booths, but angled in such a way as to only catch whether or not the machine is being tampered with, i.e. still protect the voter's privacy.

[I don't understand why cameras can't be placed in your toilet stall, but angled in such a way as to only catch whether you assume a wide stance.]

I'm having a hard time keeping the sinking sensation away that this one will be stolen as well.

[Hee! Hee!]

i do believe that they will steal this election. republicans will steal this election. you can see it already by the purging of the voter lists, the rigged voting machines and the voter id laws. we have to register and get the states to accept,millions of new voter registrations in order to win this election. so get stated and register and deliver to the state the registered voters.

[God forbid that we check voters to see if they have the proper ID for voting. Not allowing voters to vote more than once is a dirty Republican trick.]

Gee, what a shock...the Socialist Democrats are already getting ready with their "stolen election" claims 3 months before the actual vote.

I hope there are plenty of cops to deliver beat downs to these losers when they riot after The Obamassiah is not coronated on November 5.

Man it sucks to be one of these loons. Really. My head would explode if I bought into all the crap they're peddling.

Of course little things like FACTS and EVIDENCE or the lack there of, don't seem to slow these morons down one little bit.

Its interesting that you don't hear them whining about the congresional elections where the DEMS WON a majority in both the house and senate.. I wonder why that is? Hmmmm?

Obviously, inconvienient concepts like a 'Secret Ballot' don't even register to these dimbulbs.

And of course, they've throughly convinced themselves that any election that their 'chosen one' loses MUST be rigged by the Repugs because there's no way that anybody with half a brain could POSSIBLY vote those right-wing losers into office. The election MUST be rigged then! MUST BE I tell ya!

Next thing ya know, they'll be blaming the Joooooooooos!

You're the one who is insane here. The machines DO have a "receipt" of the number of vote casts and for who (it's an electronic receipt as people like YOU insisted that we all "go green" and stop using paper, remember?) but you DON'T get to see them because you're NOT a certified poll worker. Get a clue, DUmmie, that's to prevent people like YOU from rigging the election results through intimidation.

BTW, if you don't like using touch screen voting machines (which the DUmmies like yourself INSISTED be used), why don't you use an absentee ballot? That way you can be sure of who you voted for.

Oh, and if you want to know if your vote counted, just wait until the results are announced. If there are ANY votes for your candidate, you be sure that one of them is YOURS!

I can almost understand the trepidation out Progressive friends are feeling at this point.

If you are a believer in polls, they do not favor Obama. They are pretty evenly split, and, if there is indeed a "Bradley Effect"*, um, well, The Lightworker isn't going to be the next prez.

The heads exploding and ninnies "taking it to the streets", in a display of hysterical tantrums will be a thing to watch.

Of far greater interest will be the shame of the MSM who didn't even try to look evenhanded.

*(The Bradle Effect suggests that statistically significant numbers of white voters tell pollsters in advance of an election that they are either undecided, or likely to vote for the non-white candidate, but that those voters exhibit a different behavior when actually casting their ballots.)

As others have already noted, Donks do not lose elections, they are always stolen. How could it be otherwise? All their Kos and DUmmie friends voted Democrat so how could the Democrat candidate lose? Case closed man! Exit polls never lie! Put on your V masks!

Wow these idiot's won't let reality get in the way of their thinking. What they're really bitter about is that Bush actually won both times, and they know it. They're just refusing to accept this, so they pretend the elections were stolen to help cope with their loss.
Denial of their I almost pity them. If mocking them wasn't so much fun I probably would. The entertainment value of the Moonbat meltdown if the Obamessiah loses is why I'm voting for Grandpa Munster. Otherwise I'd probably have abstained from this crappo election.

We shouldn't be surprised by all the melodrama and histrionics from this particular crowd, I doubt they were operating from the most stable foundation to begin with, mental health-wise. So it shouldn't be terribly surprising that they must construct such elaborate explanations and external bogeymen for the short-comings in their otherwise unimpressive lives.

"My candidate loses an election? It was stolen. I got another speeding ticket...the criminal justice system is corrupt. I'm obese and have developed high blood pressure from consuming way too much pizza in my mother's basement...that god damned Bush and his lying cronies forced me to live this lifestyle. Or Jews...I mean Neo-cons. Yeah, Neo-cons."

These idiots are incredibly lucky that they don't have to pass an intelligence test in order to be allowed to vote. The collective IQ exhibited in these comments must surely not be higher than the low side of normal (i.e. around 90).

"So I asked, "How do we know that our votes are being accurately counted?" There were some uncomfortable looks but no one said anything."

I watched "Over The Hedge" with my kids the other day and the mother porcupine made a comment to the skunk at which point the skunk overreacted with a tirade. The mother porcupine then said "Oh geez here we go again" in a well done (albeit stereotypical)Wisconsin/Minnesotan accent.

My point being (took a long time to get there didn't I?) that the "uncomfortable looks" were probably mirroring the mother porcupine in thier eye-rolling tolerance of the above fussy liberal.

Over the Hedge was also pretty good as far as kids movies go.

Change is coming!!!!! President Barack will win by the biggest margin EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ive been having the best dream where I am Barack's #1 operative! Im sure a device can be put into people that will detect any rascist thought. Then it can be like The Running Man (great flick even though a *spit* Republican is in it) when Richard Dawson says to his operative - "Have him killed!" Barack has these devices put into potential rascists heads and when they do rascism, I and my operative team eliminate them on the spot!

Theres no room for facist rascists in an inlightined society

Hey, a girls gotta keep busy when the Politburo is out of session!

Bonuses will be payed to those eliminating the most rascists! Dont you Repukes live for "incentive"?

Im back stronger than ever! I was layed up for awhile with horrible sunburn. I was out 15-20 hours each day screaming at Grampy McSame when he and the rest of ZOG was at the Bush compound a couple weeks ago and got really, really burned. Oh but Global Warming is a myth right? *spit*

"Oh but Global Warming is a myth right? *spit*"-kaybaby

Yes it is but sunblock is not. People got sunburned in the 1970's too. Remember, when the Earth was going into the next Ice Age?

Anyway, sunblock is kinda pricey but if you're in a money crunch then I say go with the squeeze bottle. It's not as easy to use as the spray but you get more and it costs less.

Also, if you don't have any aloe then just use some of the sunblock as a treatment.

Or... did you have a different point to your post?

Here ta help ya.

One wonders if the fact exit polls often say what libs want them to say is because the libs are the people that participate in them?

I mean these guys think/breathe/live politics to the point of feeling they've established some personal emotional connection with their candidate, of course they're going to partake of an exit poll. Most Rethugs are probably so sick of the whole thing they want to get outta there as fast as they can and hear as little about politics as possible until the next eight years rolls around.

Poll results derived from the few people who actually care enough to do an exit poll - which is because they believe their vote for the Obamessiah is helping Gaia and the fluffy polar bears escape from Bushitler - show strong Democratic majority but don't reflect the actual voting breakdown, who knew? Then when the result is completely different it must be because someone cheated, couldn't be that no-one else even cares enough.

(Unless my understanding of these things incorrect? Exit polls are voluntary, right? I'm not an AmeriKKKan, ya see)

"Poll results derived from the few people who actually care enough to do an exit poll"

I don't know about that "care enough" statement. I personally don't take part in an exit poll because I believe that my secret vote should remain secret and that an exit poll is an exercise in futility as only poll that counts is the one that counted the votes that were cast in the election. Every time someone asks me who I voted for and why, I always respond: That's none of your damn business.

Those "exit polls' are just the media's way of predicting the election results, nothing more and nothing less. And, like most predictions, they are usually wrong.

@ Ray - exactly my point. One wonders what kind of percentages they are getting of voters that participate in an exit poll. I'd guess very, very small proportion of the voting public. And how disconnected from reality would you have to be to think different results from an exit poll means KKKarl Rove stole the election? Oh, wait..
