I haven't seen this posted earlier here; if not, this is certainly something that Freepers will probably be interested in. (I stumbled upon it surfing by a web site that primarily focuses on AGW issues, but has the occasional OT post).

My link was bad, and my question is would the Minnesotans for Global Warming be a credible source on the Maine Caucus?

i was there.

i saw it.

the vote counting process was so informal that the cheating cannot be proven and if a particular caucus chairman did not cheat, he cannot prove that, either. The ballots ... no security, so even if they still exist, no way to prove that they are the original ballots, since plenty of extra unused ballots were available to anyone.

Outrageous. A joke.

BS. if Ron Paul is not the candidate Paultards vote for the next greatest drug legalization candidate.

I want Mittens to lose the Maine delegates, but most Paultards will stay home or vote Obama in the general election.

Voter Fraud In Maine Caucus Investigated
A local FOX news station in Ohio investigated allegations of voter fraud in the Maine Caucus.  During its investigation, it found that many cities had not been counted in the vote tally which supposedly elected Mitt Romney over Ron Paul.

Brevard Times corrected its article on the Maine results last Sunday from Mitt Romney wins to Mitt Romney did not win the Maine Caucus.

The allegations are disturbing that the Republican Party in Maine, like Iowa, delayed announcing that Mitt Romney had actually lost those races.  The delayed Iowa results stole momentum from Rick Santorum going into New Hampshire while creating the illusion that Mitt Romney had the momentum.

Now, the Maine Republican Party will not address the additional votes which will take place this coming Saturday and announce an actual winner of its Caucus until after Super Tuesday.  Like Iowa, this could potentially steal momentum from Ron Paul if he actually won Maine while creating the illusion that Romney stopped his slide after losing to Santorum in Minnesota, Missouri, and Colorado.

The Florida Republican Party also had a hand in breaking the rules to favor Romney by making its primary winner-take-all even though the rules strictly prohibit an early winner-take-all delegate award.

The city-by-city Maine Caucus results are posted below where it shows many towns had not been counted.  The full Fox News segment regarding voter fraud in Maine can be found here.

Considering his oft stated stance on Iran, any remaining RONPAUL! supporter should have a listing in the DSM.

If you can explain to me why people who support a lunatic are not themselves of questionable mental status, I’m all ears.

Because when you consider the alternatives of phonies and frauds like saint Rick and myth you take the good w the bad when on balance the good far outweighs the bad.

Newt is ok by me - Santorum and Myth are a freaking joke.

Tha “Bad” in this case gets a few hundred million dead Americans, radioactive craters where major cities used to be and Sharia Law spread far and wide.

With Rick or God help us, even Romney, that’s not nearly the concern. With Paul, it’s a forgone conclusion. I’m a Newt guy now too, but RP is suicidal for America and the rest of the planet.

Really? Then perhaps the satellite they recently launched with an orbit taking it over SanFran and DC with a rated capacity to carry a kiloton EMP capable Nuke is just a figment of the Pentagon’s imagination.

Surely they couldn’t de-orbit it on command for a closer blast...

And all that unsealed border is just too ecure for them to sneak through...

And....

I’m not buying into the scare tactics. Obama needs a war to avoid to get his long wanted engery crisis as well as diversion from his disastrous policies.

Obama is pulling a wag the dog scenarion here and I am not buying into the propaganda.

You are free to believe whatever you like. I respect that fully. But this is not a scare tactic. This is the actions of a hostile country with an oft stated desire to make us and Israel go bye bye in the name of Allah. That sat isn’t fake. It’s carrying capacity is not a DC focus group tested talking point. Iran’s nuke program, nor all the tech that went missing after the Soviets collapsed is not a Tom Clancy novel. It’s reality.

I believe they will try at first opportunity. I am not willing to ignore their history and I am not willing to vote for a man who is. Based on the above, I think anyone willing to vote for such a man is a dangerously naive fool at best, a willful accomplice at minimum, that could well assist in getting us all killed.

Then Israel will attack them first. As of today - I am not willing to die in an Obama wag the dog war. If you and your family want to go off to Iran nd want to take on the mullahs, have fun.

so far I am not convinced

“As of today - I am not willing to die in an Obama wag the dog war.”

And I am not willing to follow Nevele Chamberlin the Second into self inflicted suicide. America does not need Israel to do the job we should have done in 1979. Then again perhaps we do. We didn’t used to be a nation cowards hoping the alligator ate us last.

Paultards, as ever, have zero interest in an across the board conservative.

If forced to choose between a conservative who is conservative fiscally, militarily, and socially versus a liberal who is liberal fiscally, militarily, and socially... Paultards pick the liberal nearly every time.

Conservatives don't really need to pay much attentions to the screechings of the pothead lobby.

Just a side note:

Some years back many called the Iraq war a ‘wag the dog’ scenario for Bush. The ‘official line was put out that Iraq ultimately had no WMDs.

So should I believe that (as in ‘Iran can’t do nukes’) or do I believe the many returned soldiers from unrelated platoons/divisions who told me “Sure they did. We found a ton of them they couldn’t get rid of fast enough”; along with the ex-CIA guy who recently told the media “Of course they did, we have the receipts.”

Wag whose dog?

If that is true, why did BUSH claim there were no WMD in Iraq? He claimed their intellegence was bad. So, maybe we can stop pretending about that little mistake.

It had a lot to do with pushing Americans into the leftist, “Bush lied” camp and electing the current Marxist in the White House.

How on Earth did you turn this into another trash Santorum thread? Seriously, Santorum has nothing whatsoever to do with the story. Leave him out of this....there are plenty of FREEPERS bashing Santorum on his threads and there are tons of them.

All I can tell you is what a number of different soldiers who were there told me. I have no special knowledge outside that. Nor do I see why they would have lied to me.

Ask all the military you know about the differences in what we were told here and what went on there. Two different things entirely.

Also, don’t forget that we were told they had no Nuke program at the same time the media reported how we were shipping tons of yellowcake uranium.

I don’t know why bush said what he did, other than as an attempt to stop Americans from demanding muslim heads on pikes after 9/11.

For those of that have been shouting, the primary is rigged to almost ensure the E-Pub candidate, this should earn us some creds.

They are so corrupt it may give Obozo a leg up. God help us all, if that happens.

Ron Paul people will vote for Obama, Gary Johnson or in rare cases Mitt Romney in the general election if those options are available. The idea of coddling Ron Paul voters now based on some vague promise of them to “support the nominee” in the fall is ludicrous. Ron Paul supporters are true believing fanatical libertarians who are lying, cheating and stealing any way they can in order to get him elected. They are not be to be trusted.

I don’t know if I’ll ever understand how on a site like this where we pride ourselves on being thinking, rational people, such complete ignorance or refusal to accept reality is becoming almost commonplace.

Anyone who has spent even a few days on or near the border can tell you that crossing it with impunity is as easy as buying a Big Gulp at 7-11. Yet despite uneducated Mexican illegals, just regular working stiffs managing to flummox our ‘security’ effortlessly 24/7/365, we are to believe that somehow the intelligence services of a foreign nation with all their resources are wholly incapable of getting a nuke (capable of being carried in any pick-up truck, less in some cases) across the border.

Forget all the jihadist materials we find regularly amongst the trash on the border. Forget the OTMs we luck out and catch on occasion from the Middle East. Forget that they tell us daily we are the Great Satan and that we infidels will be consumed in the fires of Allah.

Forget all that.

Because our border has never been as safe as it is today and Muslims are peaceful and do not mean what they say. Do not believe for one picosecond that they actually follow the Koran and the from-birth teachings of the mullahs and imams that says kill the infidel. That’s just islamophobic propaganda.

Don’t buy the bit about nuking Israel or us. Islam is a Religion of Peace and their ‘enriched beyond nuke fuel standards’ program is for peaceful purposes.

Now granted I don’t quite get why I should believe the ROP thing because they said it, but not the ‘kill all infidels’ thing they also said. But I’m sure these wizened freepers here following RonPaul! will clue my ignorant self in.

So basically, the Maine RINO GOP simply “declared” Romney the winner, because he’s the establishment elite’s choice, philosophically in line with typical Maine “Republicans” like Collins and Snowe.

Makes sense. (shrug)
Fortunately, nobody paid much attention to Romney “winning” Maine anyway.

"Iran does not have even close to the delivery vehicle for a nuke on us."

The Yemenese did not have a delivery system to attack one of our ships either.

With their current mobile launching systems hidden in a cargo ship, or just float one in to Hampton Roads;

Delivery system, delivery system? We don't need no stinkin' delivery system.

We hope his base stays home. His base is going to vote Obama. Cut and Run and Obama are one of a kind. They both blame America for every problem in the world, both want perverts in the military, both think appeasing our enemies is our best protection against terrorists, both want legalized drugs, both want open borders, both hate our military and want it destroyed.
About the only difference between them is that Obama realized the world is a safer place without OBL. The surrender monkey complains we violated OBL's civil right to kill innocent Americans.
