I think so too but it hardly counts as a silver lining
“B1 Bob” Dornan’s brother is a neighbor here.
So I know plenty about election fraud, and the republican leadership’s cowardice in not doing enough to fight it.
33,000+ votes, certainly a few thousand are from illegals, who the RNC will cower before.
A few thousand more were no doubt bought/intimidation, again the RNC will not want to make waves.
I am sure a couple thousand were from the dead, fictional characters, the comatose, and other creative uses of mail-in ballots.
Still not 33,000 worth of provable fraud.
No matter how much I despise Sierra Harry, I really doubt any investigation will change the result.
I know the RNC will not help, they are terrified of being “Mean”, “Racist” or “disrespectful of the process”.
So Sharon would be on her own, the result would only weaken her as a poor loser and deprive her of seed money for her next race.
Dream Act is on his radar.
“The voting process in this country should be impeccably honest and reliable. If the republicans are worth anything then they need to set upon this task.”
‘If the republicans are worth anything’
Not to mention this must be one of the highest priorities of the the Tea Parties.
USFS, BLM, EPA, DOE, EPA, BIA, “Wilderness” designations, Etc.
You are really pushing for Sharon to drop it/ignore it. Nothing conservative about that.
I don’t need a reply on what you think - it’s quite clear.
I think you are confusing “Conservative” and “Reactionary”!
Big difference in my definitions.
Overall we did well tonight, but not as well as hoped.
Disappointment is a part of life, conservatives learn to deal with it and gain strength from it.
“Nevada, I read, was flooded with Democrat staffers and operatives from Washington, D.C., over the weekend. The Democratic Party is no doubt up to its eyeballs in this scandal.
The Republican Party should come out fighting for Sharon Angle in this case. Enough is enough!”
If they don’t fight it vigorously now, we can expect more in ‘12. IMO, this assignment is being given to Sharon on a silver platter. IMO, she can do more with that battle - for the nation - than that one seat.
“She was done wrong.”
But she conceded and that’s not going to help this case. Mebbe she’ll unconcede tomorrow, when they crunch the numbers and look at the other incongruities in the other state races. Gore unconceded, there is precedent.
“but I would take a minority House with 68 Senators.....Senators pick the court.”
Even if 20 to 25 of ‘em voted against you half the time? Like McCain? 2012 is coming you know, and the RATS are vulnerable there in a BIG way. We also need to be strategic and build a Constitutional Coalition - as the GOP has shown they cannot be fully trusted...
“Also odd is that according to my count there are 17,000 more votes for senate than governor.”
And the oddities and the case builds...why did Angle concede??!
“If you find out why, ping me.”
My theory is that she’s just believing the media reports of the counts. Seems pretty lame to me. Come on Sharron - we didn’t stand by you all these months to have you go out with a whimper...
Her camp did issue a memo about their concern for voter fraud. Here’s her big chance to do something about it - for the country with future elections.
Your disappointment is clearly overriding your sense!
If I and my realism are not “Conservative” enough for you, I’m not sure I would want to know who or what is.
Your definition of “Conservative” must be very special (twisted) indeed!
Seven polls, all in general agreement, all show Angle up. Their MOE are typical of scientific polls - 2-3% typically. The margin of victory exceeded the margin of error by two or three times. A poll from a professional, reputable polling firm may be off from time to time. Not seven polls that all agree.
To exonerate the polling methodology we compared the polls of several other races against those races' final results. Nothing like this appeared in those other races.
The reason the GOP doesn’t do more to fight vote fraud after it happens isn’t cowardice or not wanting to be called “racist”, I think it’s more because it’s so difficult to overturn election results through the courts. We tried that in the Franken/Coleman election and we couldn’t get those results overturned in court, when clearly the Rat vote counters methodically stole that election from Coleman. We have to prevent vote fraud from happening in the first place and the GOP has made mistakes in prevention over the years, such as allowing the Motor Voter bill to get through congress. Part of the problem is that Republicans are generally honest people and so we just don’t think of the extent to which democrats are willing to use corrupt and fraudulent methods to steal elections. We underestimate how much they will take advantage of every opportunity they are given to cheat and steal votes.
Republicans probably thought the Motor Voter law would only cause a small amount of vote fraud, but instead it’s been used to register all kinds of illegal immigrants and felons and has lead to massive vote fraud. We’re just behind the democrats at figuring out what methods they will use next to cheat and steal elections, largely because we just don’t think people can be so dishonest. Well they sure can and many of these people are “Chavistas” who want to end democracy as we know it in America and effectively have a one-party system where elections are just a sham show in which their party always wins the majority in the House and Senate and always takes the White House. That’s what a lot of liberals and “progressives” really want—a one party dictatorship like Chavez runs in Venezuela. They talk like they respect democracy, but actions speak louder than words as we’re seeing tonight in Nevada.
