Some of Romney’s top supporters have been making the case that President Barack Obama is going to try to count many votes for himself that were never intended to be cast for him. How does he plan to pull this off? It is not clear how he will do it, but many in the Romney camp have made it clear that Obama can count votes for himself that are cast for third party candidates. Using an even more amazing magic skill–he is going to be able to count as a “vote for Obama” all of the people who don’t vote for anybody in the presidential election. This is gonna be easier than getting people in the Chicago cemeteries to vote, apparently.
61% of the fearful people in one scientific poll agree with the statement that “voting for a third party is a vote for Obama.”
Apparently our system of government does not even make provision for those of us who want to say no to both candidates. Obama has it rigged. This is a greater feat than they pull off once in a while in Iran, North Korea or Russia, for there the folks know that their vote is a fraud. Here, I am under the illusion that if i don’t vote, no one gets my vote.
What if I want to vote for Tom Hoefling? or Virgil Goode? Too bad. Obama will manage to manipulate your vote into a vote for Obama. Romney supporters are so convinced that he can save the Republic that they believe not voting for him is tantamount to treason. Wow! And I thought that Obama and his people were arrogant.
