Tyler Durden's picture

The first numbers in the Florida GOP Primary have started trickling in with the polls still open, and while as already noted DieBold did 'leak' the final results of the election previously, those who either care what the outcome of tonight's event is, or are masochists, or both, are welcome to follow the latest developments below.

If its tight between the GOP selection and O'Barry...stripping votes away from anyone running against O'Barry hands O'Barry the Presidency for another four years.

At the end of it all, I'm ABO.

Gee, shooting yourself in the Left foot or the Right foot doesn't sound like a good plan to me.

Fuck it, I'll vote Gary Johnson if RP is RIP'ed by the press or "Lone Gunman."

I could not in good conscience vote for more enslavement.

The only thing that matters is getting the current, unqualified, B-movie Hollywood production, half witted, narcissistic, hack golfer, Chicago crony capitalist, teleprompter reading, doofus out.

He's an embarrassment to every free thinking responsible person on the entire planet.

And don't even get me started on his very first "major decision"...Joe

RichyRoo's picture

So he can be replaced by another garchy puppet?

I dont understand how anyone can say that Rommney will be better than Obama, they will be essentially the same! The only difference will be the control narrative.

Looks like the control narrative is switching from Climate Terror/ Protecting Jobs to Islamic Terror / Free Markets again. prepare for TSA patdowns on subways and ident chips, to keep you safe. Oh and more bailouts and crony capitalism of course.

You can always exercise your right to not vote.

Knock yourself out ;-)

Exactly right. The narrative changes so that the Sean Hannity listeners will calm down for four years, and then it will be back to a liberal narrative so that the OWS crowd doesn't get too rowdy. Nothing actually changes, though. People who really think there's a definable difference between Dubya and Obama need to have their head checked. And Romney was pressed in that same exact mold as well.

all true but still and all obama should reap no reward for his despicable performance.  defeat him.

Clay Hill's picture

Wish I could agree.
Yes, BO is that bad. So are his friends.

If four years of economic pain, and erosion of civic freedoms are not enough to open the American people's eyes, then they need another four years of pain IMO.

I will never vote against a candidate again, I did that in '08.

Did you notice the article last week(?) where Biden admitted that he was not in favor of the op to whack Osama? Seems to me that they may be lining up to replace Biden with Hilary or someone else, to try to shake things up for Obongo come the general election. This is an idea that has been tossed around in Dem circles for some time.

And by the way, for those shouting "Anyone but Obama," please enlighten me as to on what substantive policy the Mormofascist kleptocrat Romney is preferable to Obama. There is none. As much as I'd like to see Obama's smug pompous face off my television, Romney is worse. And for those who would say that his Mormonism ought not to be an issue, either research Mormonism some more or hie off to kolob (google it.)

And lots more information on this dangerous cult on that webpage, culled from forum posts by people, mostly former members, who would know.

jeff montanye's picture

reasons for electing romney:  puts dems in opposition (where they are relatively more useful); punishes obama who made bush's crimes bipartisan and upped the ante (assassination of u.s. citizens ex battlefield); substitutes silver spoon "aristocrat"/vulture crony capitalist for looks black pseudo populist so better chance for sheeple to see the reality; romney really is a wishy washy flip flopper so may get more whistleblowers, fed audits, etc.; christians hate him so will help fracture fundy wing of republican party; must alternate party control to indicate disgust for ruling elite.  no it's not much but what did you expect?

I guarantee that the Wall Street puppet will win.

Wall Street always wins.  It must be fucking nice to be 2% of a nation’s population and be able to fuck the other 98% in the ass whenever you want.

 Can Romney just ask Obama to be his running mate, and Obama fires Biden and ask Romney to be his running mate? 

Parabolic's picture

Just in case you missed it: This is a MUST watch documentary. MAJOR props to Bev Harris and her crew for really sticking their lives and necks out on the line to find the truth behind these machines. This was featured on HBO--It's called Hacking Democracy. After watching it, I don't even know what to say or where to begin...but really confirms my initial gut reaction about the South Carolina primaries...!

Push the Paul button on the deducts one RP vote and adds a Mitten

 Great show. I watched it when it was on HBO. Really exposed these electronic voting machine companies.

Parabolic's picture

Hacking Democracy is a 2006 documentary film by producer Robert Carrillo Cohen and producer / directors Russell Michaels and Simon Ardizzone, shown on HBO. Filmed over three years it documents American citizens investigating anomalies and irregularities with 'e-voting' (electronic voting) systems that occurred during America's 2000 and 2004 elections, especially in Volusia County, Florida. The film investigates the flawed integrity of electronic voting machines, particularly those made by Diebold Election Systems, and the film culminates dramatically in the on-camera hacking of the in-use / working Diebold election system in Leon County, Florida.

In 2007 Hacking Democracy was nominated for an Emmy award for Outstanding Investigative Journalism.

Watched this today, thanks for the link.  All that hocus-pocus in FL was just proof that those people 'believe' in the system so much that they're willing to do anything to see that it 'works'. Disgusting...

ozziindaus's picture

Thnaks for the link. Here's a solution. When you vote, you should maintain a paper receipt with a unique serial number. The voting stations should then post every fuckin vote online with the corresponding serial number just so you can check accuracy. Now why is that so hard?

RiverRoad's picture

Yeah, like a lottery ticket.....why not?

ozziindaus's picture

because maybe the establishment doesn't want someone like RP in!

Kipper und Wipperzeit's picture

I just watched this. I had been aware of the issues with Diebold but the docu really does a good job. It is a little weak on the technical aspects but the point stands, actually, the points stand even more if you know a little bit about computer security.

This is really no joke at all.

Watch this video.

And, no, I don't believe that there is a grand conspiracy where some small cabal of people (at least via electronic voting) pick the nominee ... just not how it goes down (there are OTHER ways in which a small cabal picks the candidates, though) ... but in terms of allowing fraud on a local level ... the possibilities are endless. And in some places it hurts Democrats (Florida?), in some places it hurts Republicans (Chicago?) ... the decisions about the machines are made by fairly opaque bureaucratic processes again AT A LOCAL LEVEL, which is where most of the fraud & opportunity for fraud is. Nonetheless, it casts severe question on *ALL* electoral outcomes particularly in so-called "battleground states" etc. where it is easy to imagine national players in one party or another getting involved on the local level to tip the balances, so to speak.

Again, watch it.

P.S. when was this originally on HBO btw?

twotraps's picture

Awesome, thanks for the link.  pathetic.

No sheeple vote for Paul even though they want to because "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate" "he is not a viable candidate." (courtesy MSM)

Funny thing, neither was Gangrene until the MSM stopped saying that...

Well, sheeple, if you vote what you believe and turn off the fucking TV, you may finally get what you want, not what you deserve.

Romney will win however, it has already be written (funded) by Go(l)d(man).

Great.  Our choice in November is gonna be between a guy named Mitt, and a catcher.

I'm glad that my fellow Americans finally saw the light and relegated Ron Paul to the dustbins of history.

This freak was a menace, a ticking bomb, for himself and for society. It puzzles how he was even able to post his candidature. His place is in a sanitarium, surrounded by therapists, not in a serious political arena like a U.S. presidential race. 

UP Forester's picture

You mean your fellow Americans that'll be totally fucked when, not if, the currency collapses, and they realize about three days later that maybe they should have educated themselves on the situation instead of listening to talking heads 24/7?

Or the ones that are intentionally voting for further enslavement by the Corporate-Fascist Oligarchs because "it's the cool thing to do?"

HamyWanger's picture

Some day, go for a walk. Unseal the heavy steel doors of your retrofitted doom bunker, pop the intellectual bubble you live in, and talk to real people -- I mean, people of flesh and blood, not some 13-year old libertarian asshat on an Internet forum or virtual lizards in the new crap Bethesda Softworks came up with. 

You will discover an incredible world, populated by hard-working, smart, educated, faithful and civilized Americans. None of these citizens, as unlikely and strange it may seem, is preoccupied by things like "bank runs", "COMEX paper", "libertarianism", "gold standard", "State bankruptcies", or the "evil Zionistas". 

In fact, they tend to be perfectly happy with the world they live in --- notwithstanding a few details, of course. But globally, they love this system: universal democracy, a humane Welfare-oriented government, an inflationist monetary policy, a mixed economy, an incredible personal freedom compared to the rest of the world, and a standard of living that never stopped to go up and up since the 1950s. 

That's why they constantly vote for an Ivy League-educated GOP or Democrat candidate. It's not because of rigged elections. It's because they are happy. 

Once you have understood that, and understood that no government in history has ruled without the consent of the majority of its subjects, this world that sounds so scary and full of conspiracies to you may appear a bit clearer and nicer.

With your head that far up your ass, how do you manage to kiss so many sociopaths' asses --- and all at the same time?


PS: Nobody takes you seriously, "Hamy", nor do I.  I knew the real HarryWanger, I tangled with HarryWanger, and you, sir, are no HarryWanger.  But that is still not going to stop me from automatically junking every one of your posts without exception.

And a hat tip to Judy Woodruff & Brokaw for teeing it up for Bentson.

Haven't travelled much eh Hamy?

Nevermind maybe they will eventually deport you, again...

UP Forester's picture

My favorite "travel" was to Bosnia, a rotation in 2002.

It was amazing how well they were doing 10 years after the 50 year reign of Tito was over.

But, I guess going back to an almost purely agrarian economy after a half-century of centrally-planned economy is a little rough on a society.


And a few million landmines scattered around doesn't make for safe walks on a moonlit night.

Hammy, that was a good one. My meter reading is registering a solid Gallagher on that one, the needle is tweaking into the Sandra Burnhardt part of the scale. Definately way past Interior Semiotics this time. Try blurring the lines a little, too much black and white doesn't make it go down so well.

Meh. I prefer MDB. He comes across as a little more sincere. Keep practicing, though. You'll get there.

CaptainObvious's picture

They're only happy because they are clueless.  They are more concerned with the SuperBowl and the latest iCrap than they are with liberty and a sound economy.  If they unplugged from their tech and educated themselves they would be scared.

I'm no conspiracy theorist...I am a realist.  And the reality is that we're all fucked if we continue on the present trajectory.

fuck off hammy ass. RP aint done. He will win either Minnesota or Nevada and maybe more. Assholes like you are the ones who will be in the dustbin.



Tyranny is Love's picture

RP's results in the primary will provide an interesting indicator regarding the American voters opinion on sound money/liberty etc versus the status quo.


The results will be broken down by District, or maybe even further. It would be very helpful to know by neighborhood or even better by street what proportion of the population were willing to take a stand on these issues, (by voting).
