Why, so they can pay more people to come and vote again? Bus them in from other areas? Forge more ballots?

The Dems have 10,000 lawyers on standby. They have to have something to do.

Won't be long before voting machines will be mobile and will be driven to each 'victim' voter. Ever heard of Meals-on-Wheels?

Ok, someone answer me this. If anyone who is at the polls and in line at closing time is allowed to vote, why is there a need to extend voting hours?

Or maybe the question should be, why do the courts order/allow this?

Why? Aren't there enough traffic accidents, dog bites, and slip-and-falls to keep them busy?

Mehlman on Rush now saying not nearly enough ballots in the GOP sections of NM. So it wouldn't hurt to have polls open later there.

The libs know they are going to lose, and lose bad...this is why all of the stories about the machines breaking down, people not being allowed to vote for being short on ballots, etc.

They don't want the people to vote....so they are trying to make a case that we Republicans stole this election...

Of course they will.

Why does our side act surprised when the other side behaves exactly as they always do?

Hate is a harsh word. Loathe? Okay. Detest? Not bad, really. Disdain? Seems fine. But, if you choose hate, well... I guess I can live with it.

What the heck is happening in our country if we can't have an election without lawyers?

In the old days there werernt' lawyers on standby and then lawsuits after every election like there is now. For example, the Carter-Ford election of '76 was very close, tipping a few thousand votes in a few key states there would have changed it, but there were no recounts and no lawyers then.

Maybe this is how elections are going to be. Never final until the lawyers have weighed in. Election Day is not the end of a campaign anymore, it's just the beginning of a new phase of the battle.

Call us the "eternal optimists". We're always optimistic that the Democrats will one day show some decency and honor in elections.

"They don't want the people to vote....so they are trying to make a case that we Republicans stole this election...

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I swear the Dims believe -- really believe -- in their hearts that only they win elections, and Republicans only "steal" them.

Never in my life have I witnessed such willful stupidity on the part of otherwise rational human beings. Amazing.

We have algore to thank for that. His FL recount debacle started a precedent that was mostly unthinkable previously, and now has become Dem SOP. Sickos. Maybe its time for the red states to secede again.

Mehlman was just on Rush Limbaugh's show and reminded Rush about the Democrat memo found in 2004 that tells voters to allege voter fraud, even if there was none.

Does anyone remember that memo and have a link?

Unless machines broke down for a time at a voting place, there would be no reason to keep areas open longer. That would be unfair to the rest of the country in giving one area more influence over another IMO.

LOL! Personally, I try to not use the word, "hate". Except, of course, when I really, really mean it.
