Is Any One Relay Surprised?The Reason Government Fight Change Is Because People In A Part Of It Want The Loophole Open So They Can Make Full Use Of Them.The Same Reason Government Wants To Change Or Rewrite Laws Because Some One Wants To Protect Or Take Advantage Of A Type Of Person Or Law.

I know I am preaching to the choir, but if you need any reason for PA legislators and/or the Governor doing nothing in the way of reform, count the number of comments on this important issue. Our politicians are fully aware that doing nothing almost always quarantines incumbency. Talk is not only cheap, but it can portray concern and at the same time ruffles no feathers. Experience has taught them inaction is a positive in political gamesmanship. They know us well!

What about all the voting fraud that Philthadelpia commits every year after year? When is Rendel going to do something about that? There should be a law that you need to show a photo id before being allowed to vote.

STOP ALL THE VOTING FRAUD oommited by democRATS!

Fat eddie wants to lease the turnpike & the voting machines to the high bidder. He has absolutely disgraced this state & the office he holds.

It is the GOP block in the State Legislature that has hog-tied voting reform. Who has benefited from vote count breakdowns in the last two Presidential elections---the Republicans. They have no interest in making the system better. In PA and inevery potentially close state for the upcoming vote, it is the GOP that has jammed up voter reform, registration reform or ballot machine replacement.

The monkey wrench in the works has GOP fingarprints all over it.

Lyndon B. Johnson was the 1st democrat that I remember that was elected by dead Mexicans voting in alphabetical order. If the republicans are holding up reform , it's to put failsafe measures in place. Putting Chris countrywide Dodd in charge of the current federal bailout would be insanity. Putting wm. J. Clinton in charge of the girls dorm would be just a foolish.

That ACORN stuff was a total crock!

All the fingar-pointing in the world can't cover up the active conspiracy that resulted in voting-site clogging, voter disqualification, hanging chads, croneyism in verification of ballots that the GOP has perpetrated upon the public in the last decade.

Just watch and see this election as they try their Zimbabwe tactics again. Their lawyers are already primed for travel.

What a crock. The left didn't even want to count the votes from the armed service members. You marxists couldn't stoop any lower than you do in your daily unending storytelling.

Get educated.

In 2006, only 1/3 of the million requested military absentee ballots were cast and counted.

Reason:
Restrictive state rules and lax mailing dates for sending/receiving absentee ballots from overseas on time.

The most restrictive states in this regard have conservative Republican administrations, like Alabama, which requires each overseas ballot to be witnessed and notarized, for Pete's sake.

Conservative Republican states are in such a frenzy to restrict recent immigration voting that they have crippled voting by our brave soldiers defending us.
