    Yeah, makes you think that there are gullible people around. 1 in 5 Americans think the elections were fraudulent. LOL...what the hell is that? I bet you 1 in 5 Yankees or Red Sox fans think that the World Series last year was fraudulent. Give me a break.

    If #4 is correct, then I think it`s just stupidity to say stuff like that when you run a voting machine company. However, I don`t believe that it could possibly be tampered with unless someone can show me undeniable proof that something happened to change the voting results in Ohio.

    Are umpires baseball fans? I`m sure they are. Do they have bias occasionally? I`m sure they do. Do they lack integrity to call a baseball game between the Yankees and the Red Sox because they are a Yankees fan? Not necessarily.

    Also #12. I`m really sure that convicted felons really want to rig an election for a Republican president. That makes sense...not.

    #15. No international observers should be allowed in American polling places...period.

    #18. All the ones that the democrats cared to report.

    #19. Yes, we all know that. Did you also know that Bush and Kerry are cousins? Get over it.

    LET THE CONSPIRACY BE KNOWN!

    Yes, there needs to be some serious standardization and reform of voting in the US. But there is no Republican conspiracy, so, get over it.

    "Get over it". Mating cry of the Fox-weaned sheep. Also odd that you`d talk about Republican rigging for #12 when it makes absolutely no mention of that...just that felons were hired.

    Anyway, most of what I see on that list would be completely legitimate concerns to anyone with half a brain cell. Ah well...fortunately, I don`t live in that hole.

    1. The way this is written felons should not be allowed to have a job in anything other than the food service industries.
    2. If the owners of these companies were dem`s would we be hearing about it?
    3. Were voting machines manufactured by either of these companies used for the Clinton election? (My guess is that they were!)
    fk- Are you a citizen? Did you vote? If so bravo, flame on! If not please allow us (voters) to argue the merits of our electoral system
    P.S. We only vote for the Electoral College delegates who vote for the future president.

    "sheep" - Battle cry of certain Liberals who taking losing like a four year old takes being told "No."

    If the election was rigged, don`t you think that they wouldn`t have made it 51% to 49%?

    jinexile-I would rather not get into this… However, which part of our government are you referring to? Executive, legislative, or judicial? And how are we affecting you and, or any one else? We as a nation support democratic governments. We consume a vastly higher ratio of foreign goods and services than the world does of ours. We are a creditor nation, supplying many nations with funds for everything from relief to economic development. The international debt we have incurred has been the result of global private market auction (you can buy U.S. Treasury issued bonds, and be a creditor of the United States). Believe me the list goes on, but because we are not more socialist in our beliefs as a nation, and have the capacity to protect our interests as a nation; we are and will continue to be subject to global ridicule.

    This is ridiculous. Just "Get Over It", seriously. Bush won, oh well. Wait four years and you`ll have another shot.

    I think the sad thing is that some people will actually believe that this is how Bush won the election.

    19. The governor of the state of Florida, Jeb Bush, is the President`s brother.

    Yes. there should be a rule that states that you can not be elected to an office if a direct relative already has an office (please note the sarcasm).

    This was pretty stupid. another site on i-a-b.com containing the illogical thoughts of a fundamentalist democrat.

    che88....if you can`t make it to the polls, cast an absentee ballot. if for some reason you can`t do that, no employer is going to make you miss voting for work.

    besides that, how is that beneficial to either side? educate yourself a little bit about the government.

    It`s a constitutional right che88, I`m pretty sure much of America can make it out, seems how this past vote was the largest turnout in voting history - so apparently the fact that it fell on a Tuesday didn`t stop too many people. And besides, if that was the "conspiracy" then both Republicans AND Democrats would have been screwed out of a vote. Really, if you`re going to think it`s a conspiracy have better proof than "it occurs on Tuesday." That`s just weak.

    As0528, about your statement : We consume a vastly higher ratio of foreign goods and services than the world does of ours.

    This simply means you are a leech nation, using your accumulated capitals to paliate the fact that you arnt producing enough. And even worsened by the fact the you arnt paying what the things are really worth (sweat shops). Just wait for the day that Third world countries like China becomes fully industialised : goodbuy to your high buying power. China is gonna kick all of our butts...

    Yes, religion and politics do get people going. Especially since in the good ol` USA now, the line between them is becoming nonexistent.
