I can tell you love democracy as much as I do. And I would not shoot anyone just because they disagreed with me. That is why civilized people have elections instead of gunfights. I would defend your right to vote with everything I had. Because that's what true patriots do.
Do you have a fully automatic .50 caliber Browning M2 or a Mark 19? Cause that's the only thing that's going to save us from the Republicans and their crooked ways.
Well done for that emotional denial.
Great to see how assiduously you countered the stories with pertinent facts.
Debunking by claiming victimhood, and extreme tangential exaggerating non sequitur, fuck, we've never seen that before.
Perhaps you think that no-one associated with the GOP presidential nominee has purchased controlling ownership of any voting machines?
Perhaps you'd like to comment on whether any presidential nominee (either persuasion) should have direct connections to voting machines?
Of course this is on the internet, but being on the internet doesn't make it false, or inaccurate, it just makes it accessible.
Whether it is true or not is something yet to be shown.
You will note the OP asks
How is it even possible that interested parties can own the electronic tools used to determine the presidency of the USA?
It calls the material/study/report/claim,
an anomaly to be clarified....
It qualifies it with "
and if accurate
It acknowledges its internet provenance (and all the uncertainty that that brings)with
I have not checked the provided source documentation, but it is very very chilling.
The OP is responding to the claims from the position of if this "is" real then its implications for America's future democratic process is dire.
How about specifically countering some of the points raised instead of just displaying victimhood.
It has always seemed to me that if every time that the local store paid out the incorrect change, and the error always fell in favour of the store, then it would only be sane to come to the eventual conclusion that the store was acting deliberately. There is no error, there is no accident, there is no coincidence, there is only deliberate considered behaviour.
....now let me say it again, I don't know if what is being reported is real, but if it is, then any Republican who had the slightest honest desire for a country guided by democracy would be loudly demanding WTF? instead of just labelling anything that seemed to indicate that there is a systematic fraud (however effective or not) being attempted, as propaganda.
Perhaps you'd like to debunk these specifics below?
voter rego irregularities to date
.....and of course there is the other side of the coin, just because they are called conspiracy theories in an effort to diminish their credibility, doesn't mean they aren't accurate.
The GOP isn't an individual, and it and cannot be condemned for acting as one, but it certainly can be viewed with extreme suspicion in terms of the actions of some of its supporters.

Examples include 10 billboards in primarily Hispanic neighborhoods showing a woman with a driver’s license saying in Spanish: “This Election Day, if you have it, show it.” Read the full story

Goldstein, deputy administrator of the elections board, said the state had taken unspecified steps to protect voter files. Read the full story.
