Reader comments about this quote:
Ahhh yes, extremely timely. At consideration besides the principle would also be, the natural / constitutional law that is in harmony therewith. The principles that most quickly come to mind under the current political atmosphere are honesty, integrity, ethics, virtue and morality. Current voter fraud in this banana theocracy can even be seen by Ray Charles from his dirt bed. The over 2,000,000 illicit ballots mailed just in Los Angeles County and the college student busing from Boston to New Hampshire for registering and voting on 11/3 only begins to illustrate the broad corruption sea to shining sea.

    It's been a long time coming.  Election rigging has been getting increasingly worse.  We are ever reminded that we do not have to trust government officials  in fact they are NOT to be trusted any more than a mafia boss trusts the counters in the counting room.  If the opportunity is there to cheat or steal, someone will avail themselves of it  an inconvenient truth.

    The fact that elections are not run with the accuracy of an ATM transaction just shows the intention is to leave room for cheating.

    We will soon see...
