Some seriously long lines in early voting

If you live in a republican precinct there are 15 voting machines and no wait.

If you live in a democratic precinct there are 3 voting machines and 2 a broken.

Last election I asked my friends who live in the rich part of town " how long did it take you to Vote? and they said it was easy, 10 minutes." The democratic precinct had less machines and much longer lines.

Do you really have that much faith in MSM polling? In 1980 the polls had Carter winning his re-election. The MSM was just as rabid getting Carter re-elected as they are today in their efforts to get Obama re-elected.

Ohio was one of Obana's worst swing states in 2008. He won the election by 7% overall and only be 3.8% in Ohio. And that was before people knew who he was. He'll lose Ohio by 250,000 votes.

Nothing is of more immediate concern than the treasonous acts of BHO, specifically Benghazi and Fast & Furious.  But we must ask how we got to this point in history, in which an illegal alien was elected and maintained the office of the President for 4 years and nothing was done about it.  Over half of the population of the United States are immigrants, or the children of immigrants, that came here since the Immigration Reform Act of 1965.  If you think that Europeans or third worlders have or can assume American values, then you haven't spent much time with them.

THE most important single issue facing the U.S. is its post-1965 immigration disaster, both legal and illegal. The bipartisan Permanent Government is literally Electing A New People and new values. Among other problems caused by this utterly selfish and irresponsible policy—immiseration of the working class, cultural dispossession, linguistic balkanization, increased crime, overpopulation, etc. The U.S., as it has been known to history, will simply cease to exist within the lives of children now born.

Lots of simple rationalization to merely legitimize racism in all its glory.

Legal and educated and white voters vote for the same candidates as their uneducated and illegal and minority counterparts. The real problem is what it's always been: letting people vote themselves ever greater shares of OPM/public largesse. You don't need to be a high-school dropout illegal Mexican immigrant to hear and believe that Obama promises to give you and your friends and family more handouts and perks and such - look at his voter base: urban people, educated people, women, urban wealthy, white people, young people, old people.

It's silly to suggest that voting (for embarassing, shameful, in practice indistinguishable) candidates only occurs among some specific cohort of voters. It happens with 99% of ALL voters.

Few are interested in constitutional or legal matters here. We just want to know how to maximize the return on our bets.  We can boldly proclaim that it is as it always has been, therefore we are free to do as we will and damn the consequences. We are only interested in ourselves, even if it ultimately kills us.  That's the beauty of corruption. It ultimately gets everyone into the game.

Indeed, because once a society goes sufficiently klepto, the only way to survive is to join in. I'd say we're past that point now... getting society back to any kind of self-reliance is not going to be easy, too many people think prosperity springs from the government.

Unfortunately, at a personal level they're probably now correct.
