You do realize that Al Gore did concede once the Florida irregularities were ruled on by SCOTUS? He didn't go on to harp on how the election was stolen (well, he did in jest on SNL I think). He could have dragged it on and on. The DNC decided to scapegoat Nader while Gore, to his credit, took personal responsibility for his loss.

One could make that argument. However, Gore never mentioned "rigged elections" prior to the final vote, nor did he blame the media. He contested the results in one crucial state.

What kind of bizarre strategy is he following anyway. Is he determined to destroy the GOP as a national power in this cycle?

That's the issue, that sentence. A Clear election result? Far too ambiguous. Had he left out the opening of that sentence, I would have cheered the guy. But now he's just setting up a path to contest or worst.

I understand the anger from the right and the left, but for God's sake, in my 57 years, I've never heard (or heard of) a presidential candidate who went as far as Trump is doing RIGHT NOW to disparage the nation's election process and not one of the previous candidates ever claimed prior to the election that the system is rigged. In a campaign full of firsts, this is the one that is actually serious.

Yeah, I just think his definition of a questionable result is probably much broader than everyone else's. He's already said the election is rigged and we still have 19 days to the election. But it's already rigged. So you'll have to excuse the skepticism that he is just going to accept what anyone else would call a clear result.

You don't have to be defending the idiotic and shameful actions of certain organizations being funded by the DNC to comment that Trump is deluded about the election being rigged. I certainly am not. Further, the corruption you point to is a far cry from "rigging" the election against Trump. The corruption would need to be far more widespread and the magnitude of it would need be much, much larger for the election to be characterized as "rigged."

As far as voter ID laws, I don't have an issue with them as it's now been long enough for people to get IDs. I had a problem when they were first implementing them right before the 2012 election, giving people next to no time. As long as states are making them free for people that have to go out and get them. So you're barking up the wrong tree with that one.

Apparently, nothing is "clear" any more. Bernie Sanders lost by 4 million votes, 12 whole percentage points and all we heard was "rigged".

We've got actual evidence of voter fraud in battleground states coordinated by the DNC with the knowledge of the HRC campaign. We know that HRC and the DNC worked together to make sure Bernie lost. It's pretty obvious that Democrats have and are willing to continue to cheat. It's why they fight so hard against voter ID laws and protections against vote fraud. It's disgusting to see and it's even more disgusting to see people who are seemingly reasonable otherwise defending it.

I expect the milums of the world to stick to the party line because they have no ability to think for themselves or Mac who has seemingly lost his mind these last couple months. I expect better of people like you who post cogent thoughts on occasion.


Concerning the evidence of voter fraud, I would hope the officials in those states investigate them thoroughly, or at least the Department of Justice looking into it. If nothing else, use the civil courts (preponderance of evidence is easier than beyond a reasonable doubt) to sue the shit out of them. What I said, however, was about the CANDIDATES not saying this kind of thing before. Hell, voter fraud is always going on, whether in Illinois or Texas. And I wouldn't defend either or any political party if my life depended on it.

Concerning the DNC and Hillary conspiring to get the nom for Clinton? Distasteful, yes. Politics as usual, most certainly.

And I expect, BJ, that you would understand that politics is, always has been, always will be, a blood sport with few if any rules. The people who run for office successfully are the ones making the rules. Sort of like Mafia dons writing criminal law.

Actually, come to think of it, it's exactly like that.

Yes, her opponents have told us over and over what a horrible person she is. And they'll keep throwing everything they can out until they figure out why.

Meanwhile, after years and millions of dollars, they've figured out that she had an IT violation and that she didn't personally don her super cape and fly to Benghazi to bounce bullets off the big 'H' on her chest.

Back when all this nonsense started I wasn't very fond of Clinton. After having bothered to research a bunch of the crap these people keep throwing at her and consistently discovering a bunch of molehill-mountaineering and outright garbage, and being amazed that this is all such concentrated investigation can come up with, I'm in the position of actually feeling like, for a rare change, I'm actually voting for a candidate I approve of instead of just picking the lesser of two evils.

And then on election Tuesday I'm going out for tacos.

Trump isn't stupid: he's quite a good huckster and con man. It may just be that he's committed to the con and is going to see it out to the end.

I really can't believe in a true false flag operation, ie, the DNC or anyone else is pulling Trump's strings.

It's possible Trump is himself flying a false flag, possibly because he wants the fiscally conservative RINOs back.

Or he might believe that in order to do the things Hillary wants to do, she can't avoid doing things to his benefit.

Last, it's possible Trump is setting up for his next show, competing with Fox or Limbaugh.

We'll find out in a few months. I'm curious.

Why didn't he say that when asked directly on national TV? Maybe because his handlers didn't have a chance to intercede?

It was an awesome "PSYCHE!" moment from Trump. Made me laugh.

He is the Troller in Chief. And that is a great accomplishment of his campaign: even if he doesn't win, he's exposed so much of what our leadership and media has become. He's trolled the world, and will just go back to being Billionaire Playboy Trump after a loss.

I'm assuming that Trump is going to get throttled, so this is not really about this election specifically IMO. That being said, we've had margins of victory in swing states in the Midwest that could very easily have been the result of fraud. We know for sure that Al Franken's election was decided by ineligible voters. Without vote fraud, there's no Senator Franken. Without Senator Franken, there's no 60 seat majority in Obama's first term and no Obamacare. So yeah, it has created a real tangible difference in recent years.

We've got evidence of two operatives from different organizations working to influence the vote in two swing states with the knowledge of the HRC campaign. You think they're the only ones doing it because they're the only ones who got caught? Come on. Don't be ridiculous.


You don't know shit, meathead.
