For somebody who is so concerned about other people's blood pressure, do you ever bother to check your own? It seems to me based on observing your activities on FR, you are not much more than a ne'er-do-well who frolics from one thread to the next with the sole purpose of complaining about its message and messenger.
When it comes down to the line, I would tend to think that a person who gets his kicks by angrily shooting his mouth off at everything that gets more attention than he does is a much more likely candidate for blood pressure problems than somebody who attempts to facilitate a civil discussion among his peers about a very real and recurring problem with our election system. In other words, it seems to me that you are projecting your own faults onto those around you.
It's called vote-slamming. I lived in Houston for some time, and the trick for Democrats was to wait until after the polls had closed. At that time they could see which voters hadn't shown up. Then they signed in those "voters" and voted "for" them. When you see Democrats yelling at non-Democratic Party poll watchers, it's usually to intimidate those watchers into leaving early or not watching close enough to stop the vote-slamming.
The smoking gun for this trick is to match one of those "slammed" voters with someone who will admit that they didn't go vote in that election. Thus, someone else voted "for" them. Wish that I could tell you more, but I haven't been in Houston in a while.
