Can Democrat-leaning Voting Machines
Win Election for Obama?

Imagine you go to the polls and choose Mitt Romney on an electronic machine, but your vote comes up Barack Obama. So you re-enter your choice, but the president's name still stubbornly appears. Then a third try. Ditto. Innocent malfunction...or something else? Whatever the case, this has already happened to voters in states such as Nevada, Ohio, Kansas, North Carolina, Missouri, and Colorado -- four of which are swing states.

Democrats cheat. These are the "ends justify the means" people. This is why traditional ballots are so important. They leave a paper trail.

This would be very easy to figure out. As an astute poster mentioned yesterday, ALL computers have a "Default" setting. These machines were obviously set with a default to the big O. Any reporter worth a damn could ask:

Who made the machines?
Who programmed the machines?
Where are the machines serviced?
Is the company that made the machines a donor to the DNC?
Is the programmer of the machines a donor to the DNC?

So easy a journ-o-list could do it.

If a precinct that has a history of voting for Republicans suddenly votes for Obama, the fraud will be obvious and prosecutable.

I read elsewhere that Democrat thugs can program the electronic voting machines by invisibly enlarging the voting rectangle area of one candidate- so that if a voter hits the Romney button a little outside the box, they would be unknowingly voting for Obama. If they were fortunate, the voter would see "Obama" show up on the screen. This is a "flaw"? in the voting machine design.

We use electronically scanned paper ballots here in RI, the same machine that we used in MA. These machines have the advantage of the impossibility of the citizen voting for the wrong candidate, plus the benefit of electronic scanning and wire transferring of the town results to the state election central facility.

Some guru this morning on Fox tried to explain that if the box is "mis-aligned" you'd put a check for the wrong/desired candidate. He says it's very unlikely this was done purposely. Yeah riiiiight! He also said that "every" machine "must" be aligned before put in use at each site. Yeah riiiiight! Like in the dinky town in which I live, an expert dispatched to align the one machine? Yeah riiiiight!

I am sure Eric Holder will get right on this travesty of justice. After all, every vote must be counted - but not necessarily in favor of who you voted for.

In the world of computer programming, when you have a "multiple choice question", there is ALWAYS a "default" answer.

That is the starting point, and the end point, if an answer is not selected.

In a voting machine, THAT "default" should be listed as "NONE" !!

That way, when you do not vote for a particular candidate, there is NO vote totaled.

IF, the "Default" is listed as any OTHER name besides "NONE".

It was PURPOSELY programmed that way !!!

The machine needs to be pulled, and looked at by computer programmer's, and see WHY it acted like it did?

And there needs to be a check to see if anyone has put in a virus to the system, to fix or rig the election.

(I am always suspicious of an electronic voting machine that will NOT give you a paper receipt to reconcile with later.)

DEMAND that you State goes back to the "optical ballots" for voting
(NO chads, and hard copies you can physically count !)

we have paper ballots here in brevard county florida. you color in the circle and then you slide it into a scanner that accepts or rejects the ballot. if it rejects you can look it over to find out why(usually a poorly colored in circle) and fix it. you see the counter on the scanner advance when your vote is accepted. Now there is a good hard copy to refer back to if there are problems or challenges. We always report results in very early and never have "problems". Of course we also have republicans in office for the most part...... Do you hear me Palm Beach county?

#10 - Probably the Default is the first candidate. Since Obama is first in the alphabet - it defaults to him.

Could be accidental or could be deliberately miscalibrated.

Regardless - when Romney wins - the Dems will actually blame the voting machine company in Ohio with some nebulus connection to Bain Capital.

Selwyn Duke is right, up until the last paragraph:
"Exit polling is a precise enough science so that states can be called for one candidate or another based on it..."

I'm not convinced that exit polling will ever be a "precise enough science" that they can be definitive in a very close election.

I remember all too well the feeling of doom descending on us in 2004, when early exit polls showed John Fraud Kerry defeating GWB. Apparently, some final exit polls still favored Kerry so much, that some Dems continued to argue that Kerry had actually won, and GWB had "stolen the election."

Now remember the claims --just before the election of 2004-- that exit pollsters had incorporated methodological improvements? And that their results would be much more accurate than the disastrously wrong 2000 exit polls?

Clearly, they still weren't "precise enough science."

I've been a programmer for years and years (35+).

If programmed correctly, the default would be null or no choice. The return screen to confirm your vote for president would be blank.

It is a DELIBERATE programming action to make the default "Obama".

The 'mis-alignment' statement is pure BS; it was deliberately programmed that way to get the unsuspecting.

And the 'we're taking it in for re-calibration' is a ruse. They are really putting a version of the program into the machine that does not favor Obama, either thru 'default' or thru 'mis-alignment'.

The new program would over-write and erase ANY evidence of the old program where the Obama bias was present, and, if you looked superficially at the machine and its progams, you would think that there NEVER WAS ANYTHING WRONG.

I'm sure that Lucianne has other computer professionals who will vouch for this.

Lesson: pay close attention.

If this happens to me, I will not leave the voting booth and will ask for/demand help. And will not leave until my vote is correctly cast.

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

Bundy and ´Civil Disobedience´

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A Soros-funded nonprofit New Yorker magazine called “one of the most important radical environmental groups in the country” has issued a statement denouncing the Bureau of Land Management‘s (BLM) decision to back away from a showdown with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and hundreds of supporters. A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."
