    That is a red herring. Show me where Obama won Indiana because of voter fraud. Rather than focusing on the ridiculous, Republicans should run better candidates. Then things would take care of themselves.

    And you have the proof that it did? What if games are fun, but ultimately, lead nowhere.

    Why are you talking about Republicans?

    2) Actual voter fraud is extremely rare.

    3) If someone commits voter fraud, then they should go to jail.

    4) How many people have been charged with voter fraud? In the state of indiana, it looks like 4, out of a population of millions.

    5) Rather than worry about voter fraud, which is an issue that has been grossly overdone, I would worry about things like Enron and other schemes in which people are defrauded of their life savings. These are orders of magnitude more important than the occasional asshole that commits voter fraud.

    6) Finally, show me proof that an election outcome was changed because of voter fraud. I have all year to wait. All I want to see is your proof.
    Thanks for a well reasoned response. I could not agree more.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The thing that makes this instance intersting is the following (from the article):
    Under state law, presidential candidates need to qualify with 500 signatures from each of Indiana's nine congressional districts. Indiana elections officials say that in St. Joseph County, which is the 2nd Congressional District, the Obama campaign qualified with 534 signatures; Clinton's camp had 704.
    That is a narrow margin.

    I haven't seen anyone excuse, maybe you would like to point out who. What I have seen is people waiting for a verdict and wanting the guilty locked up.

    Care to show us different?
