Will the GOP Steal America’s 2012 Election? is a question….and a
challenge … for you. It’s up to you to prevent theft. Get informed, then put
on a badge. If you don’t join the Democracy posse, who will?

Six basic factors make this year’s theft a possibility:

  1. The power of corporate money, now vastly enhanced by the US Supreme Court’s Citizens’ United decisions
  2. The Electoral College, which narrows the number of votes needed to be moved to swing a presidential election
  3. The systematic disenfranchisement of—according to the Brennan Center—ten million or more citizens (a million in Ohio alone), most of whom would otherwise be likely to vote Democratic;
  4. The accelerating use of electronic voting machines, which make election theft a relatively simple task for those who control them, including their owners and operators, who are predominantly Republican
  5. The GOP control of nine of the governorships in the dozen swing states that will decide the outcome of the 2012 campaign
  6. The likelihood that the core of the activist “election protection” community that turned out in droves to monitor the vote for Barack Obama in 2008 has not been energized by his presidency and is thus unlikely to work for him again in 2012.

We believe these problems can be solved. We believe a fair and reliable electoral system can be achieved in this country. But we also know that it will take a huge shift in the balance of power — that shift can only be won with a massive grassroots upheaval.

If any of this rings true to you, please join us. All are welcome!

        Veteran…..hmmmm. You mean stupid veteran!! You jerks will say anything won’t you? Go into a prison and ask inmates to raise their hand if they are innocent. Those are Republicans with their hands up and the ones not in there have just not been caught yet. I am a veteran too and if you wanna use that claim then I am scared. Really scared. We are absolutely doomed and their is no hope for us at all if you prevail. When the idiots outnumber the smart people and they also can vote then the vote gets corrupted by idiot propaganda. Criminals stayed busy figuring this out which is why education is being corrupted and out of reach for the majority. You know it but were probably pushed to vote republican in the military like I was although I stuck with my guns and what is right.

      George W Bush claimed victory before he had it and HE DID NOT WIN in a fair vote. What about the districts in Texas being redrawn right before the election? That was illegal and is theft of votes if it sways the actual count for any candidate. You know it but must be one of those that doesn’t allow actual information to go past your Rush L. type brain. You must be a complete idiot to be republican now. Republicans are criminals and murders in the name of business and the rest of the world knows it. I bet this storm in New York couldn’t possibly have ANYTHING TO DO WITH GLOBAL WARMING EITHER. Geeeeeez you guys are idiots and the screwed up thing is that there are enough of you now that our education system has been corrupted as planned. The dumbest of our country vote republican because they are vulnerable to propaganda and are mostly uneducated. Go ahead, lie about your education!!! you will say anything to try and make a point. Go online like a person that knows what their doing and you will see that the rest of the world is wise to you jerks.

      George W. Bush got a second term in 2004 thanks to the manipulation of the electronic vote count by Ohio’s then-Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell. Blackwell served as the co-chair of the state’s committee to re-elect Bush/Cheney while simultaneously administering the election.

      Dickhead!!

    This is just more nonsense to spout about since no one wants to talk about the election issues. The debt, the deficit, Medicare, Obamacare and how all of this is going to be paid for in the coming years. You never discuss all the dead people that vote in Chicago which after all is where the President learned his street politics or in Philadelphia where many precincts over vote their registration numbers. This never seems to bother the left in this country. Every poll I have ever seen on this subject shows that 70% of the American people favor some form of ID when you vote. Its on the ballot in Minnesota, a reliably Democratic State for years. I am anxious to see what the voters do onn election day on this issue. You can’t get on a plane, you can’t buy a whole host of items without ID in this country and yet, you want any and all to vote without any proper ID. It makes no sense.
