    it does

    electoral accuracy standards have fallen in the US over the past 10 years.

    It is heading in the direction of third world standards.

    It can reverse, if we don't ignore the problem.

    Yeah, I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I've been bathing and excreting in the same river ever since I heard about ACORN. Think I'll join a traveling merchant to the great bazaar, then I'll probably barter with a local militia to allow safe passage to the ballot box. Should be, what, only a goat or two? After that I'll probably crash at a friend's tent and listen to the distant rumbling of tanks.

    Man, things have sure gone downhill since 2006.
    No offense.

    Show demonstrable proof of this assertion. Historians would definitely disagree with you.

    well just the fact that a lot of people don't believe electoral accuracy is good means that there is a problem.

    if u want to convince me otherwise, go ahead.

    if it satisfies you, then it satisfies you.

    if it doesn't satisfy me, then it doesn't satisfy me.

    thats 50% acceptance rate. kind of low for a first world democracy if you ask me.

    No we just have more lawyers to make this an issue (seriously).

    Doesn't mean fraud exists or prboelms exists, but the PLM is the real reason we have issues, and will continue to.

    wuts plm?

    i think being not honest with yourself is the entire issue.

    or maybe not being honest with the people of the USA.

    Election tampering is about as bad as it gets in my book.

    10 people can tamper an entire state's election. They should all be executed IMO if they are ever caught.

    No, it isn't. Show a basis for these claims, or don't make them. 50% of the voters in 2004 went out and voted for George W. Bush. That percentage means nothing. I want to see evidence that voting accuracy has gotten worse in the last ten years.
