The number of instances of electoral fraud, in the United States alone, throughout history are too numerous to sit down and count, whether minor or
major examples. The 1964 Civil Rights Act and the Help America Vote Act are indicators that this has cropped up enough times to where the government
has had to put a curve on fraud, which is odd to me if the corporations are fixing everything to begin with. Perhaps the Hegelian dialectic being
applied in a governmental environment isn't too crazy an idea.
On top of that, measures like secret ballots and mores have been established to place further security on each ballot. But when questionable things
happen, like ballots being taken to "secret locations", amidst consistent other flub ups such as results somehow making it to spam folders, and with
major accusations of electoral fraud (the 2000 elections for instance, where black voters were being prevented from voting in predominantly black
districts), I'm not sure how somebody who seems intelligent and well researched like you is unable to see the rampant corruption.
This is why I'm not angry at you for, say, disliking a particular candidate (despite your insults towards Paul supporters), but more disappointed that
you can't see something for what it is. It's like you're staring at an anvil coming down at you, yet you shake your head and say that there's no such
thing as anvils.
And if you think Romney and Obama are any kind of viable choices, you'll be let down. This is why I don't put my faith into anybody, much less a
politician. They can look good and say all the right words, but you'll find that they fail to make good on anything they say.
If that's what you personally want, to be purposely lied to and used by a wealthy man in a nice clean suit, then God bless you in your future
