lol. So you declare my comments off topic, then you go on to discuss republican politics! too funny!

Don't worry. I won't be returning to your blog. I've always been a bit suspicious of your analysis given your braggadocios nature. People who are genuinely accomplished don't need to constantly remind people how great they are. However, I gave you a pass because I am a nokia share holder and I wanted insight into what was going on with the company. However, now that I see how easily you dismiss ideas without rational analysis and thought, I can't trust your analysis. You will be likely to feed me false information because you've missed key facts that don't fit into your desired world-view.

I was trying to EDUCATE you on something that you obviously know nothing about but THINK you understand. What you have demonstrated is that you aren't even open to discussing opposing views. Therefore, you will never grow.

Let me just leave you with a point that you can easily grasp and maybe put a little thought into...

The progressive income tax is point #2 on the communist manifesto. go read it. Do you think it is an accident that the progressive income tax permeates american government at every level? Or might it be that American politicians have long been influenced by marxist thinking and have sought to implement in any way they could get the american people to using WWI as a pretense for passing it.

With that, I'm done. Delete the what you want. I don't care. I won't be returning to read your response or reply. I really don't care what you choose to believe. I just now know I cannot trust your judgement.



Read your article, fascinating. A lot of theories are going round the net claiming voter fraud. In some precincts there were zero votes for Romney which some say is statistically impossible. In others, turn out was 120%. In all States, but one, with voter ID, Romney won. However, your analysis is very detailed and seems to be a good explanation of why Romney lost.


"In all States, but one, with voter ID, Romney won."

Hmm. My impression was that voter ID was a device to intimidate and suppress Democratic votes. Supporters of the Democrats in general being poorer and less likely to register and have the required (which?) ID. So, such measures tend to be made in states with very solid Republican majorities.

Suddenly, it sounds a lot less strange that Romney won in almost all of those states.

And I still have to see a single documented case of voter fraud. However, I do have seen a documented case where an intern of the GOP was caught destroying completed voter registration forms. There were also many documented cases where minority (Democratic) voters were intimidated trying to vote or misinformed about their legal rights and voting procedures.

#obamacultrequirements believe requiring a voter ID is a way to suppress minority votes assumes minorities R too stupid to get an ID. Sounds racist?

Tomi, I read through this piece and am happy to have found it.

I'm curious as to your sources for many of the numbers that you quote here, and use to support your analysis.

Would you mind disclosing the provenance of the numerical data, for example: 34000 ground troops, 800 phone bankers, 6 million calls on Election Night, 29000-voter polling panel in Ohio, and so on?


"believe requiring a voter ID is a way to suppress minority votes assumes minorities R too stupid to get an ID. Sounds racist?"

No. but being told to get an ID mere weeks or days before the election, not telling you which one, or even telling you the wrong one. Telling you you need an ID when you do not. Calling people telling them they can vote by phone, or vote the day after the election. Telling people they can get into jail if they make an error at the polling station, or present the wrong ID. Moving the polling station 11 miles in the wrong direction. Running out of ballot forms early in the afternoon. Six hour lines for polling stations. We can go on and on about this.

I cannot even believe you are honest about this.

Hey, That's really something. But it's a manifeststation the same problem, namely that the hardcore right wing is so out of touch with reality that everything they say and do makes them look stupid. They are still relatively strong because the older non-internet generation never gets wind of these antics. But this will inevitably change over the next years and unless the GOP finds a way to modernize itself, like many conservative parties in Europe did. If not - sooner or later it will mean "bye"!
