<quoted text>lol! Hey! I'm sure you can work a poll "half and half" as long as you close them before people can vote.
I don't see the issue with your scenario. But that's for avoiding the point completely instead!
I addressed your point. Your point (so it seems) is that polls closing early and not having accommodations for the elderly mostly or only affected Democrat voters. I say if anything, it's quite the opposite. Republicans are more likely to vote later since most of them have jobs compared to the non-working social program sucking Democrats who can vote anytime they desire.

What I would really like to see is your information to these claims. I want to know how many potential Democrat voters were turned away because they didn't accommodate the elderly.

Every single election, there are problems. You can't have millions of people voting without problems. For instance: a few years ago, I went to my polling place to vote. As usual, I go just before closing because by then, the place is empty. But that one election, I was greeted with a sign that stated the voting booths were moved to another location. This is because there was a teachers strike, and the UNION morons who set up the voting tables wouldn't enter the school. I didn't get to vote that election. I made no big deal about it because as I stated, no election goes without problems.

Did I call the papers and news organizations claiming there was a conspiracy of some kind? No. Because as I stated, elections come with problems. Democrats on the other hand would make all sorts of claims. They look for these problems and say that it's a conspiracy of some kind, even though all places of voting have equal Democrat and Republican workers.

Ah! I guess when you have linear, one dimensional thinking, you can't see the same correlation you made.

But that's ok. I'm sure you can ask one of your brethren to explain it in a more appealing manner.

It is, huh? Very well, then show me more recent evidence that the Fox report was incorrect. I researched it myself and found it to be accurate.

The Factcheck report was true at the time. But FactCheck doesn't update their material--especially when it makes the left look bad.

That's the way it works in debates. You make a claim, and if I disagree, I provide proof of my claim. If you disagree with my claim, you find evidence that disproves my claim. If it's false now, then by all means, I will examine any credible evidence you have to provide.

The RNC and the DNC could switch hats and the outcome would be the same.

Actually, the RNC is closer to a three party system in and of itself.... the old guard GOP (Boehner boys), the new guard (the tea party who are the most selfish of the lot) and the libertarians (think Ron Paul).

None are able to stand on their own, which accounts for their diverse and chaotic stance on nearly everything they talk about. And with such division within their ranks, they can't come to a cohesive conclusion on anything.

When I think of a conservative President Harry , giv'em hell , Truman comes to mind.

This was back in the day when Democrats were allowed to think for themselves and a diverse group was their strength.

I look forward to this in the Republicans.

I think the tea party will , in the future , be looked back upon as a catalyst for needed change.

I think nothing is worse in a party then independent thinkers thinking alike.

Ron Paul is leaving office and they only made one of him.

Here's a history lesson in why the 2A is essential to protect innocent lives.

Innocents Betrayed - The History of Gun Control



The link below shows why American citizens CANNOT be disarmed. It's physically impossible in an industrialized 1st-world nation like the US. Guns are FAR too easy to make, and require very little in the way of tooling, skills, and materials. They can't even accomplish it in Brazil.

http://improguns.blogspot.com/

If guns are made illegal, then the streets will be flooded with smuggled-in and home-made fully-automatic weapons like sub-machineguns and machine-pistols. Making a Sten-type/style sub-machinegun is extremely easy to do with only very modest and common tools and skills.

What a cheep shot (what else would we expect). Neither ACORN nor its employees have been found guilty of, or even charged with voter fraud!!!!! ACORN was found not guilty of all charges made by the right-wing hatched men!!! The only thing ACORN is, or was, guilty of is the fact that they were the largest most successful national anti-poverty organization in America.
Your October 18 source on Factcheck. Don’t deny, you changed a couple of words but direct from them is

Move to 2012 and the numbers increase

A total of 70 ACORN employees in 12 states have been convicted of voter registration fraud. As documented in a July 2009 report by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, of the 1.3 million registrations Project Vote/ACORN submitted in the 2008 election cycle, more than one-third were invalid.

What’s interesting is we’ve not always had early voting. Now if the early voting period is too short it’s racists and only impacts the Democrat vote.

We’re going through grief here in Florida. Early voting lasted more than a week. We had long lines, none the less I cast my vote. The first Saturday lines wrapped around the building. I drove by several times that day and decided to show up early Sunday morning. Got there at 6:30, only had about a dozen people ahead of me. Was gone by 7:10, polls opened at 7.

Maybe Democrats are unable to get up early.
