I agree with your statement. The other problem I see is voter fraud. How else can you explain a fool like AL (Stewart Smally) Franken winning a congressional seat after "ballots with his name on it mysteriously appeared in the trunk of a car" giving him the seat by 1 percentage point. http://hotair.com/archives/2010/11/20/stop-the-recount-we-found-more-voting-machines/
Add to that the George Soros selected States Secretaries (known as the Secretary of State Project-SOSP) who conduct the recounts in "close" elections, http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/jun/23/section-527-works-to-seat-liberals-as-election-ove/?page=all and viola! You have a re-election of a socialist.
