    I certainly hope this potential mess does not come about. It will make us look like a banana republic again.

    If the Libs will not try to create votes while working to deny conservative votes all the while cryng out "every vote should count" there will be a lot less mess.

    Perhaps I should have said why I used the word again along with the term Banana Republic.

    In 2000 my wife was working in Xi'an, China. I had been there but had returned home ahead of her for medical reasons. She voted by absentee ballot. In fact, I carried it home with me and mailed it once I was inside the states. When the big mess occurred in Florida she said a number of Chinese friends made statements like:

    "I never though I would see America have this type of problem. It is like they are a Banana Republic."

    She said they found it very hard to believe that the world's leading democracy could possibly have such problems.

    There were no messes until democrats decided the only way they could win a presidential election was through the courts or by cheating.

    IOW "counting every vote" , especially the illegal ones and tossing out military votes while the nation is at war.

    The Republicans won in 2000 by cheating, 2004 by instilling fear. 2008 hopefully the best man will win. Although if Obama wins all of the McCain/Palin supporters will say that things were not fair, that the new machines had glitches, that something foul is the cause!

    I am sorry for your confusion. These tactics are belonging to the Democrats. Much like the ones here in Florida who tried to create votes all the while working to deny the votes of our overseas fighting soldiers and at the same time claiming "every vote should count".
