The reason the American populatio has been stable is simple. There is a general acceptance that representation is by majority consent.
What will happen when the population realizes that the computers are not programmed to count the vote correctly?
Civil disorder, of course.
The Department of Defense has declared that it can act without consent to respond to what it labels at its whim a "civil disturbance".
In other words, we don't have a Commander in Chief, and the Armed Forces are the police without any controls.
I don't see anything but a disaster and mass slaughter of the people coming with this situation.

We need to re-instate the Posse Comitatus law, which forbids the use of the Standing Armed Forces of the United States against the population of the United States.

"The White House has said that President Barack Obama learned about the Justice Department's record seizure from press reports and had no prior knowledge of the action. Obama's administration is fielding concerns on several incidents that raise questions about its transparency."
No wonder the press thinks Obama is lying. Obama used this same defense that he did not the IRS was targeting his enemies until it came out in the paper.
Only the far left Progressives find this even close to being honest.
The chief White House counsel knew for weeks about the IRS practice of targeting conservatives.

The Wall Street Journal and NBC’s Chuck Todd both report that the top lawyer in the White House did, indeed, know about the scandal for weeks before it broke publicly.

The real question is why would they intentionally keep the president out of the loop and neglect to tell him for months about wrongdoing in the agency when top executives were preparing to testify in front of Congress and the topic was likely to arise?

Maybe you have the answer. No one else does.

He was convicted so the sentencing would be a proper formality on where Lay would serve out his lifetime in jail. Also, despite Lay's death , his estate and heirs are still on the hook for the $43.5 million that lay stole from employees and shareholders of Enron stock. "The government launched a widespread fraud investigation that enveloped Enron’s finance, trading, broadband and retail energy units. The probe amassed 16 guilty pleas from ex-executives, eight of whom testified against Skilling and Lay during their trial.
Lay and Skilling insisted no fraud occurred at Enron except from a few employees who skimmed money behind their backs. Jurors were unconvinced."... "Prosecutors in Lay’s trial declined comment Wednesday, both on his death and what may become of their effort to seek $43.5 million from Lay that they say he pocketed as part of the conspiracy. The government is seeking $139.3 million from Skilling.
Lay’s death will not affect the government’s case against Skilling, who will appeal his convictions, Petrocelli said." Check this out: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/13715925/ns/busines...
You wish to talk about old news.

None of this is an excuse for what Obama's admin had done.

Do you think it is appropriate for a Progressive site to post an enemies list of donors to Romney and openly encourage that they be harassed?

Dick Cheney lied & helped get 4000 sodiers killed.
As for your friend Nidal, he was killed in Bagdad in 2002. It was believed by the Palestinians that Sadam ordered the killing.
Now what, Dumbwaiter?
Valerie Plame's goddam job was to verify all intelligence concerning WMD programs in Iraq, and it was her assessment that was given to the president, and her assessment that was repeated at the UN and before Congress before the Democrats supported the war in Iraq, AFTER the Republicans conceded and gave them no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy and caused the recession.

Valerie Plame, head of the CIA's joint task force on Iraq WMD programs said Iraq had a WMD program.
Saddam Hussein was allowing Abu Nidal to have refuge in Baghdad, just for one example. Abu Nidal was connected with Al Qaeda. Perhaps this is the reason Saddam Hussein killed him when the American forces moved in.
So, the question remains: Do you have an example of Cheney lying?

'LOL Of The Week: Reince Tells Republicans Not To ‘Cry Wolf’ As Obama’s Approval Rises' "Sensing that his party was about to blow it, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus — and expert in blowing it — issued a warning to his fellow Republicans – especially Bachmann – to turn the crazy down a bit." ... "The GOP’s fixation on Benghazi — which has already been investigated by the right in a way they never bothered to look at 9/11 or the bombing of the Marine barracks in Lebanon that killed 241 American servicemen during the Reagan administration — relies on a belief that the president wanted a U.S. ambassador attacked or participated in a massive coverup that involved offering the CIA’s best intelligence then quickly revising it as better intelligence emerged.
Republicans are notoriously opposed to anyone offering bad intelligence, unless they do it for years in order to justify an unnecessary war.
The Benghazi story only flared up again recently because an ABC reporter proffered forged talking points from someone, likely a Republican on Capitol Hill, as fact. And the problems exposed by this tragedy —“…the members of Congress that failed to provide resources, and the bureaucratic hurdles that kept the resources that were available from being deployed”— have never, ever been truly explored."

So did head witch-hunter Darrell Issa way back BEFORE the 2012 elections and he chose to ignore it like he ignore repeated requests by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for more funding for embassy security. What's wrong Darrell, you too busy counting your loot from your profitable car alarm business empire to do your job in Congress?

(CBS News) WASHINGTON - There were new questions Saturday night concerning if anyone in the White House was aware of the IRS' targeting of conservative groups.

Inspector General Russell George said he informed a deputy at the Treasury Department in June of 2012 about the probe into the IRS.

It's the first evidence that someone within the Obama administration knew about the practice during the presidential campaign.

You have to be a left wing wacko to even be considered for Democratic politics today.

It won't be long and the unions will be dying, that means you won't be able to pay for busing the ghettos to the polls anymore, and at the same time colleges are pricing themselves into extinction.

So, that's why Dick Cheney outed Valerie Plame as a CIA spymaster because her husband wrote a nasty oped to the New York Times that criticized the Bush Administration accepting without verification her assessment that Iraq had WMDs. republicans broke one of Ronald Reagan's cardinal rules of good government:'Trust ,but Verify'.

I find it unbelievable that no one tells the POTUS anything and he has to read it in the papers.

Questions for Progressives-
Do you find it believable that no one tells Obama anything and he has to read it in the paper?
If you find this believable, do you find this a horrible way to run a WH and a country?

Didn't you see the memo from RNC chairman Priebus to 'tone down the crazy talk'? It's helping Obama and the democrats look saner and more responsible than republicans to American public.
