No doubt about it there was cheating and fraud going on and we knew that was going to happen and that is why we needed every single solitary vote we could muster up and not a time for so many to decide to just stay home. Just too bad we all have to suffer along with those.

I kept the fake slates distributed by the Romney team along with the real ones distributed by the Paul team as evidence. Maybe someday in the future they will be worth something. I could sell it on ebay "Physical proof of cheating by the Romney team".

Of course cheating was involved. Heck, cheting was involved as early as the GOP primaries. Ron Paul was cheated out of delegates in multiple states and at the RNC. It is not rumor. You can still read newspaper articles from Maine, Nevada, Luisiana, Colorado where normal delegates discuss the back room deals, last minute rule changes, and the works that took place to take votes away from Ron Paul. I'm not saying he was cheated out of a victory, but his delegates were unquestionably cheated out of having a rightfully earned voice in the formation of the party platform. I myself attended the Colorado state convention and witnessed fake Ron Paul slates being passed out with all the Romney delegate names on it to try and fool Ron Paul people.
In combing through the results of the 2012 election -- apparently finally complete, nearly two months after the fact -- I continue to find many similarities between 2012 and 2004, and one enormous difference.

Both of the elections involved incumbent presidents with approval ratings hovering around or just under 50 percent facing challengers who were rich men from Massachusetts (though one made his money and the other married it).

In both cases, the challenger and his campaign seemed confident he was going to win -- and had reasonable grounds to believe so.

In both elections, the incumbent started running a barrage...
