Well, most of the stories I have seen are about the exact opposite. Romney votes being marked for Obama.
least four states have reported that issue.
So, I find it suspicious that only now do we see a single supposed case of the opposite occurring. I would submit that this might have been set up to
make it seem as though all those other cases were simply faulty machines that needed recalibrated. I would also submit that, since no one reported
issues like this in the past, as far as I have been able to tell, this is something new to THIS election. Considering all the other fraud,
intimidation, illegal influence at the polls, and violence (all listed on my thread with links), I really can't look at this as anything but a
diversion, to make the guilty parties look innocent.
Now, that said, I do not want ANY fraud, from either side. Anyone committing such fraud should be prosecuted. This is supposed to be a free country,
not some backwater regime with controlled elections. All of these cases prove one thing; we MUST have investigations into these allegations, and we
MUST insure that only valid, eligible citizens can vote, that they vote only once, that their vote is not bought or influenced, that no one is
threatened. never in my life have I seen so many of these cases, and the vast majority are allegations against Democrats. I know that not all
Democrats would support cheating; have known some fine people in that party. Those doing these things (and yes, any on the Republican side as well)
are giving their party a very bad name.
Edit to add: According to this link:
...the machine in question was fixed, and is back in service, so it does look as though there was actual resolution. At least we know someone is
looking into these cases. In the ones where Romney votes were reported as going to Obama, I also read that those machines were recalibrated as well.
We can hope that this is simply faulty equipment, but I still wonder. In any case, if you have not voted yet, and use a touch screen, CHECK that
ballot before you submit it! I certainly reviewed mine carefully. Hope everyone is able to get out there and vote.
