How will the American presidential election be won in November 2012? By the Republicans buying the election? Perhaps. But money cannot always buy an election. That is why Republicans have spent the last four to six years passing ...

86 cases of voter fraud found by people who were REALLY looking (the Bush administration) in the whole country of nearly 200 million voters - so haven't the Repuglicons wasted zillions of dollars passing measures to stop what was virtually non-existent? Well, yes, if that had really been their motive - instead it was a cover to DISENFRANCHISE 21 MILLION VOTERS who were old or poor or marginalised in some way - and either way on were too intelligent to vote GOP!!

Democrats get organised please - make sure that EVERY Democrat voter can vote and has registered properly or you will lose to someone who makes GW look like Santa!

(TomCat S has a link on Politics Plus that some have found useful with helping registering to vote - maybe worth a look?)

We must not allow this to happen...ever. We must be vigilant and stand up for what is right. Or we will lose our rights. It's up to each of us. All that glitters is not gold. Don't fall asleep.

The Republicans are going to be suppressed in November. We need not only to keep the White House Republican-free, but we also need to start cleansing our Congress and our statehouses of Republicans. Suppress them whenever possible.

this is terrible. The international community should supervise the elections! But that's why the GOP is so against the United Nations! So that they can get up to their outrageous shenanigans unobserved and shamelessly. It would be the worst ting for the USA and the world if the Romney and Ryan are elected.
Already here in Australia the right wing nuts are beginning to rise.

Here is a poem by one of our billionaires, in response to a very modest mining tax:

Our Future


The globe is sadly groaning with debt, poverty and strife
And billions now are pleading to enjoy a better life
Their hope lies with resources buried deep within the earth
And the enterprise and capital which give each project worth
Is our future threatened with massive debts run up by political hacks
Who dig themselves out by unleashing rampant tax
The end result is sending Australian investment, growth and jobs offshore
This type of direction is harmful to our core
Some envious unthinking people have been conned
To think prosperity is created by waving a magic wand
Through such unfortunate ignorance, too much abuse is hurled
Against miners, workers and related industries who strive to build the world
Develop North Australia, embrace multiculturalism and welcome short term foreign workers to our shores
To benefit from the export of our minerals and ores
The world's poor need our resources: do not leave them to their fate
Our nation needs special economic zones and wiser government, before it is too late.

Her "special economic zone" will be mines where people will be imported from Africa to work for less than $2.00 a day. They will be happy with that, she claims.
This is from a woman who has not mastered her own language and has written a poem that is so riddled with technical errors that she should go back to school.

Please, everybody and his dog turn out to vote for Barack Obama!

What will the world come to if the Republicans win? I do not even want to think about that.

Yeah, the United Nations observe the elections, that would be good. People with common sense vote for the Dems (that's how it should be). Do you want a future ? Vote for Obama !! I know he's not perfect, but then who is ? The president lives in an hostile environment, surrounded by Repugs, who want to win the elections whatever it takes, and certainly not by fairplay. Fight back, don't let this happen..., don't let all of us suffer.
