    They don't exist today or they never existed?
    The national security of the United States can never be left in the hands of liberals.

    You would have to prove that silliness was systematic and not the fault of one single person or location.

    As for the future, I think the post above is correct. There is no ACORN anymore.

    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.

    blaming?

    LOL!

    beaver cleaver would probably just say "being mean"

    my reasons are the same as the seventy percent of dems and 100% of republicans in congress

    it's pretty obvious

    why do some of our forums members more prone to personalities sometimes beg the opinions of people they don't like or respect?

    that's most unpleasant, if not downright weird

    carry on

    Not hard to do just Google Acorn and voter (registration) fraud and look at the number of states they have done this in Wa, Mi, Mo, Wi to name a few

    And this trend would certainly have precluded my use of your example in support of a post.

    I was referring to the plummeting acceptance of this season's Republican "messaging".

    I posit it is a consequence of the Armitage/Koch attempt at astroturfing existing Tea Party groups. They planned to use them to make noise in opposition to healthcare reform.

    They DID NOT, imho, intend for the Tea Party to seize the reins and turn the whole thing into a real movement.

    As a result, what the PR industry refers to as a "crisis management response" was developed and implemented prior to the last election to prevent this unexpected complication from possibly costing the Republicans seats.

    The problem lies in having to go "off-message" in mid stream.

    First, they had to determine what planks of the platform the two subsets still held in common, and what they did not.

    Then they had to craft new "memes", or spin, or whatever you choose to call manufactured ideas. Ones that would resonate enough with both mainstream Reps. and Tea Party Reps. to hold them together through the election, without alienating independents.

    They obviously managed to put enough super glue and duct tape on that mess to hold it together through the election, but its unravelling now.

    Too much was cobbled together at the last minute, and the whole "messaging" structure that has been laid down over the past 30 years has been compromised as a result.

    THAT'S why both sides of the normally undivided Republican Party are looking at each other like they're crazy.

    Because cognitive dissonance makes one a little crazy.

    At least that's how I see it.

    It's not about why the law was signed. Though, that being said, it's ridiculous to think that the company as a whole is trying to "buy" or throw elections. Or is it? I mean it's possible but probably not plausible.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Nobody at a polling station is going to see these fake voters. They are voting by absentee ballots.
    Yes, but unless the registrar of voters where you are operates radically differently than it does here in CA, voter registrations are verified. Names are checked against DL records, SS numbers, etc..

    Are there loopholes or whatever that could be exploited to pad ballot boxes?

    Certainly. Every state has their own rules and procedures, and people are great at figuring how to get around rules.

    But the "turn in fake applications for absentee ballots and thus steal an election" simply couldn't have happened as a result of the increased difficulty in obtaining the necessary identitification to do it.

    Here in Cali anyway.

    So unless the groups you mention are engaging in some other method to commit voter fraud, I still have to disagree with your premise.

    Could you please define massive as used in your post? Also, can you prove that ACORN advised clients how to falsify documents to open a prostitution house before James O'Keefe made his bogus videos?
