Interesting analogy. First, i believe there was so much fruad in this election, that the results are bogus. There was also 3 precincts in Ohio without one vote for Romney.

The voting machines, from what I understand can be changed to just enough votes for the person they want to win. The program disappears after voting. I would love to have all that voted Romney in those precints to come forward. They were bussing in people from Chicago to Wisconsin to vote. The man from a news station saw this and wrote about it. They were all discussing how they needed to get back to Chicago with their Bears sweatshirts on.

I highlight that here because recently I took umbrage with the Congressional Budget Office projections on the U.S. economy and the country’s budget deficit, writing for Townhall about the budget problems we will face once interest rates begin to rise.
