The disappearing independent
Politico, by Lois Romano

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/20/2012 7:24:19 AM

As Republicans sift through the wreckage of the presidential election and Democrats brace for the 2014 midterms, there is one clear point of agreement between them: Independent voters no longer decide elections. In 2012, Mitt Romney became the first presidential candidate in recent history to decisively win the independent vote — yet just as decisively lose the election. Pollsters and campaign strategists — particularly Republicans — are scrambling to understand what happened — and more important, what it means for future campaign strategies. Romney trounced Barack Obama with independents in five of the eight battleground states that Obama won,

Yet the Pubs still blame Tea Partiers for their loss. Seems like they simply did not turn out their base. Blame Reince Priebus and the rest of the RNC for that. Corruption? Pat Caddell detailed it at Breitbart.com and Foxnews.com. Stolen? Where were the GOP poll watchers and the follow-up action? Incompetence and stupidity? That is a given. Who were the brain trusts that decided to put all their eggs in the economic basket?

Here´s a thought. What if they´re not disappearing? What if they (and others) are simply not bring counted? And what if opposing groups are being over-counted?

Here´s another thought. Who the heck is in charge of validating and confirming the legitimacy of candidates, the legitimacy of voters, and the accuracy of the vote nationwide? Answer: nobody. Of our right to vote is so dang sacred, why is no one treating it like it is?

It´s simple, stupid! Obama won by falsifying the vote. That simple. The voting rules favor cheating and until that problem is solved no one will know the true values of the American voter.

Dozens of precincts in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida had obvious, MASSIVE irregularities. The military vote disappeared in a convenient plane crash Laws, designed to reduce double voting at the polls were challenged and watered down or declared ´unconstitutional´. Early voting is never verified and often has ´Mickey Mouse´, or ´Vladamir Lenin´ (dead or imaginary) voters permitted to sway the electorate.

Freedom is dying in America.

But it can be revived. I ask you: what would any of our ancestors have done when faced with such obvious chicanery? What would any generation up till Vietnam have done to a political group so obviously set on undermining and destroying America?

When do we start?

So, take a firm stand, and show how the Democrat policies aren´t good for you, your children and the prospects of having a decent job.

Don´t attack unions, but illustrate that unions can´t have special deals either.

Acknowledge that most of the labor issues are now statute, and we are better for it as a country.

Illustrate how Democrat objections (EPA and environmental groups) to drilling for oil in America is costing jobs, good jobs, and reducing tax revenues to pay for government.
The EPA is not the Every Project Attacked agency.
There is ALWAYS a consequence to the environment, but that doesn´t mean we can´t do any projects, but the dept should be looking out for the taxpayers not just saying no because the agency wants to change our behaviors.

Three pages of horse hockey. Need the independents, need the Hispanics, need the Blacks, need the Women. Well, the only way to get the majority of those votes is to put a D by your name and act accordingly.
Leadership in the repub party told the Conservatives to shut up and go away and it is obvious that they complied. It is no more complicated than that.

It is the job of the RNC to challenge questionable vote tallies like the DNC did in 2000. Ohio and Florida have GOP governors and legislatures.

The silence in challenging the results was deafening.

Politics is just like a business. Grow or die. To grow, you not only need a good product, but understand your market and have a way of getting your message/product to that market. Usually that is the function of the marketing and sales department and ultimately, a sales professional.

This company (Republicans) sent in an accountant to do battle against an unethical salesman who wouldn’t know a debit from a credit. (But neither does the customer - low-information voter). No surprise, really, that Romney got whipped.

I like Mr. Romney, and thought he would win in a landslide, but he was not the man for the job. He started off OK, but in his second pitch (debate) to the customers, he dropped the ball. He had Libtard, Inc. on the defensive, trying to keep up with the features/benefits he had outlined in his first pitch. He just dropped the ball, couldn’t close the deal.

Please Repubs, no more accountants. Give us someone that lights up the room and can sell.

#7: the Republican party is barred legally from challenging Democrats on obvious vote fraud. I´m not sure who signed it, but an agreement was signed in the 80´s that consented not to challenge them because to do so would be racists, I believe.

Yes, the RNC cannot challenge. We didn´t know that until this year because nobody ever talked about it. The RNC continues to collect money even though they know they are hamstrung against election fraud. Which is why the Democrats can be as blatant as they were this time and still get away with it.

And why the Republican party should be disbanded in favor of a party not stymied by their predecessors´ self-destructive tendencies.

So, yes, these kinds of breakdowns are pointless because the Democrats stole the election. Who cares who independents voted for? The Democrats stole their votes by cancelling them out with fraud. Blatantly.

What happened is that the candidate was an empty suit and hired a staff of a hundred highly-paid professionals who can´t count, and none of them knew that you have to try for 100% of the vote, you don´t just target 51% of the independents.

Rigged. It could be so easily fixed if the machines were made to print an audit slip which would be put into the box. Then all could be dumped out and counted when there are problems.

I´d like to see that "nice guy" who was "beaten" tell what he knows about what happened in this election. Write your book now, Romney, in time for the next election.

Rigged elections in favor of the democrats will only lead to more republicans and independents not showing up at the polls.

Get ready for a democrat in the WH for many years to come. They have perfected the art of stealing elections. With no GOP pushback, there is nothing to stop this practice. This behavior can only discourage opposition voter turnout.

I don´t think the Republican base failed to turn out. Most of us had been chomping at the bit to vote for anyone but Obama since 1/20/2008. Vote fraud was huge. In my state they passed same day registration when the dems took over in 2008 and in my city 30% of the votes were same day registrations by "first time" (in this city at least) voters. You didn´t even have to provide proof of residency, just show up and sign a form. I am positive that many of these voters were from out of state or voted in multiple towns in the state, or both. Then the dem sec of state certified the vote almost immediately before any challenges could be investigated. Afterwards we were told it didn´t matter anyway because Romney lost in so many other states it wouldn´t make any difference. But if you cheat in every state you can always use that excuse and unless the feds investigate (not going to happen with Holder) the cheaters are guaranteed to win.

I agree fraud is a lot of it but one important thing from this article is the entire sales pitch of the poisonous GOP consultant class is rendered meaningless. Their pitch has been that you need independent voters in order to win and they´ll tell you how to get them. Now it doesn´t matter. Names like Steve Schmidt come to mind.

#14, I don´t understand your logic: if the machine can be rigged to report the wrong vote (ie, a vote for Obama when a vote for Romney was cast), then why couldn´t the machine be rigged so that the "audit trail" printed would match the fraudulent vote?

Obama administration gives Detroit

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

One approaches the race fray with trepidation, but here we go, tippy-toe. The race cards have been flying so fast and furious lately, one can hardly tell the kings from the queens.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson earlier this month told House Democrats he´ll take action in the next few weeks on “fixes” to immigration law, most likely dealing with deportation. “He gave us a time frame, and there are some fixes that are going to be coming sooner, which is in the next few weeks.

It’s been a long time since Johnny Carson slept in the tiny upstairs room in the modest little house at 306 S. 13th St. in Norfolk. Carson was born in Iowa and moved to Norfolk with his family in the 1930s. They lived in at least one other house in Norfolk before moving into to the white, wood-frame structure on 13th Street. Built in the 1920s, the house featured a small kitchen, dining room and living room on the main floor, while the second floor contained a bathroom, several bedrooms and an enclosed porch.

Former Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman advised the White House on how President Obama should announce his support for gay marriage. A Harvard classmate of Obama’s, Mehlman told the president over a White House lunch that it was politically viable to reverse his position and support gay marriage, according to a report in The New York Times. Mehlman, who managed George W. Bush’s reelection campaign and came out as gay in 2010, told Obama that the American public viewed him as an idealist willing to put politics aside, and that endorsing same-sex marriage would reinforce that image.

American Greetings enlisted the help of Boston-based advertising agency Mullen for its Mother´s Day campaign this year. The company started the project just before Christmas break last year.

Josh Romney took a quick potshot at Sen. Harry Reid this week with a Twitter post of his famous father, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, standing in line to pay his taxes. The tweet included the text: “Hey @SenatorReid here’s a shot of @MittRomney paying taxes. Does it every year. It’s how you get your paycheck.” The back story is that Mr. Reid insisted during the last presidential campaign that Mr. Romney was a tax dodger who sent his money to offshore accounts — even when that claim was proven untrue. Mr. Reid’s exact words, as reported by The Hill:

Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu is facing criticism after she reenacted a Senate hearing for a campaign ad -- while also fixing a flub from her original remarks. Landrieu’s ad, titled “Will Not Rest,” appears at first glance to feature footage of the senator passionately arguing for increased oil and gas revenue sharing during a Hill hearing. Landrieu’s campaign described the ad in a press release as highlighting the Louisiana senator´s “efforts to stand up to the administration in order to fight for Louisiana, and protect and strengthen our energy industry that supports 300,000 high-paying jobs.” The ad features various clips of

But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
