Caught On Tape: Obama Campaign Staffers Say It’s “Okay” to Vote Twice
Controversial investigative journalist James O’Keefe (of ACORN hidden video fame) is at it again, and this time he’s caught some volunteers and employees of the Democratic National Committee assisting would-be voters with registering and voting in multiple states.
In Houston, Texas, for example, the Project Veritas reporter made her intentions known, and rather than being rebuffed for her planned illegal activity, she was provided assistance with obtaining the proper forms to be registered in two states and was told to say “I don’t know” if the double-voting ever became an issue.
Similar situations unfolded at other DNC funded community organizations.
In a country where advanced technology is being used to track the most minute activities of its citizens, it is shocking to see just how easily the process of electing the leader of the free world can be compromised.

Ku Klux Klan honored in US again
26.10.2012

n the U.S., a scandal erupted around an incident with a black woman Sharmeka Moffitt residing in Louisiana. The woman has suffered serious burns. The evidence and the testimony of the victim indicate that the crime involved representatives of the Ku Klux Klan. However, the authorities insist on self-immolation.

The African-American resident of Louisiana was found on Sunday, October 21, in her own car, with burns covering half of her body, and the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) symbols and racial insults painted on it. The investigation surprisingly quickly came to the conclusion that she committed self-immolation. The U.S. media have minimized the reporting on the incident, but what if this is the first sign of the predicted race war in the U.S.?

Romney the Con Man is a 4-time draft-dodging yellow-bellied coward.

Romney thinks the US military is for peasants and cannon fodder. Romney so disdains the US military that he did not mention it ONCE during the RNC convention.

Ann Misogynistic Creep Romney so disdains the military that she actually had the gall to say 2 years of MormonMoronMissionary 'work' in Paris is the same as going to Vietnam to fight the war.

Despicable.

Romney didn't go so another American took his place. Does Romney care?

Bwahahahahahahahhahahahhahhaha hhahahahaha

Romney: Kill the auto industry, screw Ohio.

"What would Romney have done? It’s impossible to know for sure—in part, because he’s made made inconsistent and, at times, contradictory statements.

...But Romney has been relatively consistent on one point: He wanted the automakers to get financing from the private sector.

They could ask the government to backstop warranties on the cars and to guarantee "post-bankruptcy" financing, but they should go to the private sector for the actual loans—even though such loans would have been impossible to get. Even Bain Capital rejected an appeal, according to published reports." TR

Romney Inconsistent?

Bwahahahahhahaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaa

Romney is a Con Man from the Romini Gypsies a long line of travelers, charlatans and, in his case, polygamist compound dwellers of Mexico.

Romney flips and flop twenty times before breakfast. He has lied so much about everything that even he doesn't know why people don't call him Willard the distributor of pornography.

Romney attributes his success in Massachusetts from having to work with 87% Democrat majority, when he was Governor of Massachusetts...why is that, OregonSUX? It is because MITT ROMNEY IS A DEMOCRAT, trying to sneak in on the Republican ticket, because nobody else can stand for the Republicans for the challenge of the Presidency of the United States!

Mitt Romney will say ANYTHING to get elected, INCLUDING his claim of being able to cut the tax rate, add monies to the military of over 2 billion, and not burden any American with more taxes and less opportunity (while looking at repealing 'Obama'care and putting millions of teachers out of work in the process)...and you know how he is going to do that in his mind? By going after the people he believes are not contributing their fair share to America, THE 47% OF AMERICANS THAT MITT ROMNEY CHARGES IS NOT PAYING ANY TAXES IN AMERICA! Mitt Romney wants this 47% of Americans to pay for the 6 billion in tax cuts to that wealthier Americans will benefit from, and to pay for another 2 billion in military spending surplus for the military, that the military hasn't even asked for!

MITT ROMNEY IS NOT THE SOLUTION, BUT RATHER THE DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA!

VOTE OBAMA...IF NOT FOR MERELY VOTING FOR OBAMA, VOTE OBAMA TO NOT VOTE FOR MITT ROMNEY, AS ROMNEY IS THE DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA! ALL YOU 47% OF AMERICANS OUT THERE TRYING TO SURVIVE AND GET BY, OF WHOM MITT ROMNEY HAS ACCUSED OF NOT PAYING TAXES, BRING YOUR TAX RETURNS TO LIGHT, IN ORDER TO SHOW THAT YOU ARE A TAXPAYER, AND THEN VOTE AGAINST MITT ROMNEY, SO THAT MITT ROMNEY WON'T TAX YOU ANY MORE THAN YOU ALREADY ARE BEING TAXED! WHILE YOU MARCH TO THE POLLS, AMERICANS, CHANT OUT LOUD THAT YOU WOULD LIKE MITT ROMNEY TO UNSEAL HIS TAX RETURNS FOR THE LAST 15 YEARS, BEING THAT HE CHARGES THAT HE'S PAYING HIS FAIR SHARE, AND YOU ALL AREN'T PAYING A DAMN THING FOR TAXES AT ALL, YO!

You can see from the rhetoric here that the discussion is more about jobs than defense needs.

About 1/3 of the entire military workforce is civilian, and they are needed for stability. You don't understand what you are complaining about. Our budget is so high because we not only defend our own interests, but our interests in other countries as well. To reduce our presence is to invite opposing interests in. It costs to be the boss of the world.
