If this is fraud then the legal definition is overbroad and vague, and thus unenforceable.

ehhh.... I kind of think that they are reaching...

There is precedence that trivial items, i.e. buttons, stickers, &c., does not create a genuine sense of quid pro quo. If the election board does an investigation, which I think is unlikely; there is no way they would find that a typical person would feel that there was an expectation of reciprocity for a sub sandwich... Unless that was a hell of a sandwich!

Good `ol Mitt is just helping us Americans brace for the 500 billion in tax breaks that will expire at the end of the year costing roughly $3,400 per household. I`d want a free sandwich too.

This is a little ridiculous. People tend to serve refreshments and things at rallies don`t they? Bit of a fuss over nothing really, if a sandwich really swings your vote you probably aren`t responsible enough to vote anyway.

Nothing fraudulent in a free sandwich. Or did he offer free sandwiches and not have them?

Maybe the term "Ethical" might come into picture much better than fraud. Even then, really? I doubt you need to give a vote to him in exchange for some calories.

madest: Once again you`ve leapt headlong into stupidity. Handing out sandwiches is not equal to buying votes. People will take a free sandwich and still vote for whomever they choose.

The vast majority of voter fraud occurs with the democrats and their supporting organizations, ACORN and it`s sister organizations have been convicted of vote fraud multiple times. They`ve had babies, people in comas, and even dead people vote. They`ve applied false voter registrations and absentee ballots and they pay people to do this `ballot stuffing` for them.

Now that`s voter fraud.

@hauswyfe: The issue is not it`s origin, but whether it will become true. When election time comes around, there is a certain percentage of our population that votes a particular way because of what they have been promised, on both sides. And naturally campaign promises are broken, on both sides. But when it becomes possible to get elected by swinging the social safety-net vote, it becomes advantageous to let people slip into your constituency.

Omphaloskept, of course, you are correct. Democrats are far to stupid to figure out they can get a free sandwich by saying their going to vote a certain way in a primary knowing they don`t have to actually vote at all because nobody`s going to be checking up on them. They need for some bureaucrat to come by their government-subsidized apartment, hand them the sandwich, and pantomime how to eat it.

Edgarska19, what`s even sadder is that the Democrats don`t care if their candidate is a Stuttering Clusterf*** of a Miserable Failure, as long has he`s handing out other people`s money.

"I want to thank you for voting," Romney says.

He did not say, "I want to thank you for voting for me.", or, "You only get a sammich if you vote for me.", or anything similar.

If you`re so intent on uncovering voting fraud, madest, what about ACORN. What are your thoughts on that? Yeah, may have been the last election, but that shouldn`t make it irrelevant.

Of course he won`t be charged. He`ll just shrug it off. Maybe some Dems will yell, but it`ll go away. But Obama is inexperienced and he doesn`t have a true mentor -- like Cheney was for Bush.

I`m not a Romney supporter, but I don`t really see what the big deal is over some sandwiches. It`s not like he`s saying you can`t have a sandwich if you DON`T vote for him. It`s also not as if he`s handing out free cars or something really lavish. Stupid media drama is stupid.

I don`t think there are many people who would sell their vote for a sandwich. But. There must be a line that is drawn to keep votes from being bought and sold. The easiest line to maintain is 0. Anything more than that and suddenly we add a huge amount of complexity to an overly complex system. Candidates would have to document how much they are giving to individuals, other impartial people would have to keep track of those documents.

All candidates should be reminded not to do it again and then let it go.

[quote]Not voting at all is the same as voting for the candidate you don`t want to win [/quote]

Let`s be clear, there is no candidate I don`t want to win more than any other here. They`re both terrible.

What I think is likely to happen is a slim victory for Obama on the same paper-thin margin as Bush`s second term. Look at what happened then: with an unpopular President that was only narrowly returned to power, and who had something to prove to the electorate that had failed to support him, and a maximum second term secured so the electorate could go and f*ck themselves for all he cared.

Obama`s not doing anything materially different to Bush in terms of America`s foreign policy or improvement in its human rights record. Return him to power with that same slim second-term majority, and you`ll see how truly cynical a liar he can be when he doesn`t need to care about getting re-elected next time around.

"Romney already beat Obama in the Gallup"

You`re acting like it`s a huge margin, when it`s really not. Obama was beating Romney only a month ago.

"The real selfish person here is you, voting for a candidate you don`t even like just to spite the opposition! "

What? It`s not to spite the opposition, it`s so I`m not stuck with a worse choice for 4 years. Not voting is essentially a vote for Romney, and if I had to choose between Obama and Romney, I`d want Obama by FAR. So why would I willingly not vote just to let Romney win?

"How hypocritical towards everything you`ve said thus far"
How is it hypocritical? You`re the one saying you don`t want ME to vote just so YOUR choice will win. I`m saying, I vote for who I`d rather win, you vote for who you`d rather win, like what we`re supposed to do in a democracy.

I`m not black btw, and plenty of people support Obama who aren`t black.

>>>Oh god, don`t do that, they`ll count it anyway.<<<


That`s right, they will. It`ll count as a "spoiled ballot". Elections with a high percentage of spoiled ballots tend to lead to governments that have no credibility for the following term. We had one like that in Scotland in 2007. The ballot papers were so confusing, with so many second and third option ways of voting, that lots of old people (and I`m sure plenty of young too) got confused, that around 7% of the votes were spoiled.

Your tick in the box for either party`s flavour of lunatic/liar wont count for anything. Your deliberate lack of a tick in either box just might make them pick more credible candidates in four years time. Either way, the next 4 years are going to suck, so what have you got to lose?

GREAT option if we can get 100% of the population to follow. That will NEVER happen. Not voting at all is the same as voting for the candidate you don`t want to win and it`s a HORRIBLE idea when the candidate you don`t want to win is worse than the one you`re not completely satisfied with but isn`t quite as bad. You don`t have to live with such a stupid decision for 4 years so it`s really easy for you to say that, but we would.

[quote]Wtf do you expect us to do?[/quote]

What do I expect you to do? Honestly, I expect that enough Obama voters will suck it up and vote for him again for him to secure a greatly-reduced majority, even though you`re angry about being lied to on a massive scale, simply because you don`t want the alternative. To me, that`s about as dumb as voting for a man that turned out to be a massive fraud, simply because he wasn`t George Bush, and he made a load of promises the US population wanted to hear, without any intention of implementing any of said promises.

What do I think you should do? Honestly, the most sensible option in a field of liars and lunatics is not to vote. At least that way you`re not complicit in what happens for the next four years. Even better, if you`re feeling truly motivated to express your disappointment : pick your favourite Obama lie, go to the polling booth, and write it on your ballot paper instead of an `X`, followed by the word: liar.

"I obviously don`t want your opinion to count."

Typical of Republicans, you don`t really care about our democracy, you just care about your own selfish interests. There`s a reason why republicans try to reduce voter turn out (such as their campaign to Latino voters to "have your voices heard and don`t vote!" or the ridiculous voter registration laws when voter fraud is extremely rare already). Less people voting = more likely for republicans to win because republicans aren`t popular with the majority of Americans.

Because offering a sandwich to someone exercising their right to a secret ballot is so much more terrible than threatening to beat people at the ballot, signing recall petitions more than once, signing up ineligible voters and letting the dead stay on the ballot. Keeping military personnel and bread rolls away from ballot boxes is as important as preventing anyone from actually checking the voter is who he says he is. We can`t possibly prevent people from being offered Eric Holder`s ballot, but we must prevent them being offered a sub!

"It says he was wanted and there was a low voter turn out, which is usual in America."

It says he was wanted and expected a ton of people to show up to vote for him when only the 200 most diehard fans bothered to make an appearance, compared to the 10,000 out of 10,000 the other guys gets. It says "damn, people hate this main guy so much they`re not even showing up to support the rest of the party". & then the repubs take it by a landslide and we can start fixing this mess.

"Not voting at all would be lovely~ "

Not voting at all is essentially the same as giving a free vote to the person you don`t want to win. Unlike you, I`d never tell a person, even if I strongly disagree with them politically, to not vote. It`s our right and duty as American citizens to vote and that`s the only way we can have our opinions count.

Actually, leesah, not voting is not a good option for anyone, regardless of party affiliation.

Just because you go to vote does no mean you have to fill out every bubble for every position. If candidate A gets 200 votes and s/he is the only one running for that position, but there were 1000 voters who showed up to vote, what does that say about Candidate A?
It says that s/he was unwanted and not a good choice.
But if you just don`t go, and candidate A gets the same 200 votes out of the 200 who showed up, what does that say?
It says he was wanted and there was a low voter turn out, which is usual in America.

TL;DR: Low votes but high voter turnout is more effective than votes equaling turnout.

Wtf do you expect us to do? We don`t have a 2nd choice for a democractic nominee, it`s Obama only. You really think that someone like Romney would be better? Maybe if you want more money spent on wars, more benefits for corporations, less regulations on corporations (which is NOT a good thing, they are hardly regulated as it is), less taxes for the rich, and pretty much nothing that`ll benefit real Americans. At least with Obama we get some good every once in a while. The bad comes from republican influence, which they turn around and blame Obama for completely (such as the mandate in the health care bill).

Perhaps, Madest, you`d like to support Obama by "throwing Bo a bone" and donating $10 to his campaign? Sandwiches, dogs, what`s the difference. http://tinyurl.com/6pblg38

“Now, he’s got three years under his collar as the first dog. This April, wish Bo Obama a happy anniversary as a member of the first family,” adds the campaign website in a posting headlined, “Throw Bo A Bone On His Anniversary.” Of course, that “bone” would be a campaign contribution, starting at $10."

Call that electoral fraud? How about basing your whole electoral campaign on repairing America`s reputation in the world, exposing and atoning for wrongdoing by the US military, ending wars and closing Guantanamo. Then laying it on so thick you get a Nobel Peace Prize before you`ve even done any of it (and you never do). I know that the Republicans are just a comedy side show at present, but seriously, anyone that votes for Obama again this time around and who cared about any of those issues on which he promised so much but delivered precisely none of it fully deserves four more years of having the ultimate cynical liar in the White House.
