So liberals tend to blame the GOP of being perpetual liars, and right-wingers like the Koch brothers of always concucting Koch conspiracies. So what
do Obama supporters think of suspicions of election fraud in the GOP?
Actually, each side claims the others are perpetual liars. That's been the status quo ever since Ogg and Mugoh fought over who would be chief of the
I'm not overwhelmingly convinced that there's election fraud going on. The polls are watched, exit polls are taken and we have poll watchers from
other countries who aren't involved in our political process. The numbers aren't exact, but they're similar.
I suppose you've never participated in poll watches (you might like to) or seen how they limit fraud in other countries. We have similar measures for
Just because its not 'your' party doesn't mean its not your country.
May I also respectfully point out to conservatives and Republicans that your words are also true for THEM?
If you really distrust republicans, why wouldn't you support ron paul to change that image?
Why on EARTH would I support a Republican? I'm a liberal Democrat. Republican policies today are the ones that liberals wanted fifty years ago. The
world's changed since then, and I'd like to see progressive solutions. Why on earth would you think I'd ever want to vote for a Republican over a
(well, if the Democrat candidate were Joe The Plumber and the Republican was Mitt Romney, I'd actually vote for Romney in that case.)
Why I'm not going to abandon my party to vote for Ron Paul:
* pro Defense Of Marriage Act
* anti-EPA (in fact, he's got the WORST environmental voting record)
* did not support Civil Rights Movement
* his conveniently bad memory of what times were really like
* he's against Obamacare
* wants to do away with Federal lands
* wants to re-crucify America on a "cross of gold" by returning to a metal standard. We got rid of that because it would be possible for another
country to corner most of the gold market and hold the rest of the world hostage.
* redefines "unconstitutional" as "anything Ron Paul doesn't like." The constitution is a living document and was MEANT to be changed. Heck, the
Founding Fathers changed the thing and scrapped over definitions.
* can't manage to form a consensus group with other politicians to get anything done. Good at voting "no," however. I want politicians who get
Even if you end up voting for Obama in the end, it is a preference of honesty.
Beg pardon? I'm not sure I understand the statement or the logic.
If you 'just want to win', how does that benefit you or anyone else if it is just more of the same?
Once we get rid of the Republicans who are more interested in their self glory than they are in compromising and forming new solutions AS PART OF A
TEAM then we'll do much better. I think we need conservative AND liberal checks and balances -- not logjams.
I just don't get it, we've heard "its bush's fault" for three years, now all of a sudden the democrats don't care about GOP election fraud
despite their plans to pick Jeb Bush lol of all people.
Well, Democrats don't usually meddle in Republican beauty contests because in many states we're actually not allowed to vote in Republican
This primary's for Republicans who are generally more conservative than Democrats. Why in the heck would we want to pick YOUR candidate?
Come November, we're going to come out and support our guy (and also during our state primaries we'll be there voting for state and local laws and
