    There is no free speech in Russia and in most parts in the world.

    Electorate manipulation
    Manipulation of demography
    Disenfranchisement
    Intimidation
    Vote buying
    Misinformation
    Misleading/confusing ballot papers
    Ballot stuffing
    Mis recording of votes
    Misuse of proxy votes
    Destruction of ballots
    Tampering with electronic voting machines

    All are ways that the electoral process in America is compromised. But if the virtue is, hey we're not as bad as Russia, then indeed, we're in good shape.
    Back in 1997 I was subpoenaed by Congress to testify before Congress as a witness with the voter fraud that took place during the 1996 Congressional elections between Rep. Bob Dornan (R) and Loretta Sanchez (D)

    While a voter recount was being conducted almost six months after the elections the Orange County Register of Voters found two or three boxes of absentee ballots that were never counted.

    I have never voted absentee again. Not knowing if my vote will be counted or not.

    Re: the Dornan and Sanchez voter fraud. Loretta Sanchez is in Congress today because non citizens put her in Congress. The Republican in Congress didn't do jack #### about it.

    Let your freak flag fly, I say. It's Montreal, a rather pathetic and worthless city anyway. Wave it loud and proud.

    2.)We had no qualms about attending the Olympics along with all those totalitarian, communistic nations that oppressed their entire populations all through the Cold War, and now people want to see the Olympics essentially destroyed over LGBT issues? And they fancy themselves to be more enlightened and tolerant. What a joke.
    1.) agreed 100% and in the future if these countries are ineligible conflict is suppressed

    2.) thats a cute story but "who" wants that? seems at least you quoted the wrong person or at worse you are in the wrong thread. "see the olympics essential destroyed" LMAO

    This article can be found at the Montreal Gazette.

    I hope more cities will choose to protest the anti-gay laws in Russia by doing this. Hopefully we can get more Canadian cities to do it as well as some American cities. Do you think that your/nearest city would raise the LGBT flag?
    In my view, there are two problems with gestures like this.

    1. They turn what should be a totally apolitical enterprise - amateur athletics - into a fight and a discussion that has nothing to do with the enterprise.

    2. They focus attention on the matter and then, when the none related event ends, the focus of the attention dissipates and/or disappears.

    Personally, I hate people hijacking important events for political grandstanding - even when I agree with the purpose of the grandstanding.

    There is plenty i can be critical of here and in russia at the same time. I would not want the olympics in US because in most states, gays still cannot marry the person they love, can be legally fired or denied housing and subject to other barbarities. Yet all that is still infinitely better than comrade vladimir's reign of terror, and there's plenty other locations to hold a winter olympics. You see, i can condemn the selection of russia as host without mentioning the US at all. It's you who keeps doing that.
