On voting night, there was an unaccounted for delay in announcing the final count in Iowa. At that stage, Santorum lead by about 4 votes. Eventually, Romney was given the win after the “discovery” of a collection of hitherto unnoticed votes that gave him the lead by 8.The county of Appanoose was down on the offical results as providing 22 votes for Romney. However one of the actual counters of the vote in that precinct had jotted down a record of his own countings, and believes the real number was only 2 votes for Romney. Edward True, 28, of Moulton, said
“When Mitt Romney won Iowa by eight votes and I’ve got a 20-vote discrepancy here, that right there says Rick Santorum won Iowa, not Mitt Romney.”
A spokeswoman with the Iowa Republican Party said True is not a precinct captain and he’s not a county chairperson so he has no business talking about election results. Notice there’s no challenge to True’s assertions about the actual numbers in that response. Read more »
When I look at the candidates who remain on offer in the GOP primaries, I can’t see much hope for freedom. We need a radical for sure, but it cannot be Ron Paul with his blindness on foreign policy and his apparent unawareness of what would happen if Communist China or Russia achieved global political hegemony in the US’s absence.
It has to be someone who will slash and burn government, rebuild the US military into a real war machine, and encourage a return to traditional Conservative values. None of the current candidates would earn my vote in that none of them seem to appreciate the real problem let alone have any working solutions to the US’s current parlous state.
As I have often said before, I think the political battle was lost decades ago. Socialists have white-anted the US and perverted the voting system too completely for there ever to be a democratic solution.
The left have so destroyed our democracy, that if Obama was to offer every voter a “free” pair of Nike’s new Air Jordan basketball shoes, then no matter what damage their other policies might do to liberty, the Democrats would probably win in a landslide. Read more »
Has Kiwiblog gone downhill or what? On the few occasions I look in there these days the comments are unreadable. Mostly just a never ending round Robin of inane trash from the same small group of loons. Alexa shows a steady decline over 6 months and a 20% drop over the last three months. No wonder I reckon.
