There HAVE been reports etc that Obama and/or his campaign stole the 2008 nomination from Hillary Clinton. Much of the fraud was early in the process including the Iwoa caucasuses.

There are also reports that the Obama campaign challenged the voters in his early campaigns of the 90s and yet if it's done now with voter ID it's labeled voter supression.

Obama isn't the big problem it is the campaign staff and hardcore fans/followers that ARE the danger in any campaign. They feel compelled to use the what ever playbook and manytimes it's even implied by campaign management. Or orders can come from the top much like the Nixon campaign/Watergate.

A politician's entourage/fan club stand to gain the most through political favoritism wether it's legislation, a job, a "fix", money etc. This is why a political "machine" is so hard to defeat. Sometimes because that "machine" or staff/workers have more at stake than a win or loss. The politician's entourage/fan club is frequently more dangerous than the politician because they have more to lose even if it's a personal belief or agenda.

Part of the evidence or trail of voter fraud started long before the election of 2012.

Really. Like people believe that these elections aren't fixed out the gate. Have been for years. How far back, idk. Since the 80's at least. That's exactly why I don't vote. It doesn't matter. The powers that be will elect who they see fit. Except this time they forgot to throw in a few for the other guy. Don't know who FKd up there. Sure would hate to be him. If he's lucky, he just "disappeared". If not.....well, ever seen Enemy of the State?

Many who have been around awhile get the realties politics but the younger voters or new citizens do not. They ASSume it's a straight up game which it is not. You ask a college kid about the Chicago Way and they'll think you are talking about the Cubs or Bears.
