How comes it takes Russia to show the USA how to hold a fair and balanced election?By Dark Politricks
It comes to something when the USA, supposed home of liberty, freedom and refuge from tyranny, has to ask for external observers to their elections to stop them being stolen.
The USA is very good at labeling elections in countries such as Iran or Russia stolen or compromised but who are they to talk after the debacles of the Bush elections, the proven hackability of the Diebold electronic voting machines and all the voter suppression being carried out across America at the moment.
Not only do we have Republican Governors trying to introduce laws that would block a large percentage of people who would normally vote Democrat from voting by insisting on forms of ID that these people don't have or don't have time to get before the election.
We also have CEO's of companies telling their staff who to vote for, that their jobs depend on voting for Mitt Romney and even asking their workers to contribute to the Romney campaign whilst they fly around on their private jets.
Then we have the spectacle of Mitt Romney's son buying electronic voting machines that will be used in key swing states including Ohio - imagine the uproar by FOX News if Obama had done that!
Despite all the shenanigans going on to block or cajole people voting from one way or another we have the disappointing choice of two candidates who seem to differ very little on the important things as last nights debate shown.
Not only are both candidates in hock with Israel and sworn to protect it with the blood of American sons and daughters, but both are war mongers who will probably start a war with Iran in the next Presidency to distract people from the meltdown of the American economy and way of life.
Just as history shows us, first there is an economic collapse, then a massive wealth disparity between the top few percent of the country and the rest of us and then when things just don't get any better a war comes along. We should not let either of these two candidates lead us down this road again.
And why is it that these debates are only between Obama and Romney when there are more candidates standing for election? Is it because the debates are organised by the establishment themselves - yes - it is all facade meant to show that there is a difference between the two parties when none really exists.
There are many other candidates standing for election including Green, Libertarian, Constitution and Justice party candidates but we don't get to hear much from them.
Maybe if they had been allowed to debate the two establishment candidates in a real debate about important matters then it would have been much better to watch instead of just seeing the two candidates agree about important foreign policy issues.
Issues such as why do both men support giving US tax payers money straight to the banks that stole from the nation instead of locking them up in jail.
Or why do we always stand by Israel and talk about Iranian nukes when Israel has hundreds and uses the USA to fight her wars for it.
Or why are we fighting unbeatable wars on terror and drugs when we are stone cold broke. Just imagine all that tax revenue that would be brought in if Marijuana was legalised.
If you do want to watch a proper debate, one in which both candidates don't try and out warmonger each other, then RT.com is showing one tonight.
This is a debate which you can watch live between the Libertarian Party's Gary Johnson, Green Party's Jill Stein, Constitution Party candidate Virgil Goode, and Justice Party candidate Rocky Anders.
It comes to something when Russia has to show the USA how to conduct fair and balanced elections.
Not only did they install 15,000 cameras in polling booths so that every Russian citizen could watch and help prevent vote rigging they also had more than 2 candidates standing for election.
Also as they don't use electronic voting machines there is a paper trail that can be analysed after the fact. Something the American population cannot do with their easily hackable voting machines. Maybe there is a reason Ireland sold all their electronic voting machines as scrap metal.
