There is nothing to unethical that the present GOP won't do to win. Reducing voting hours in Dem precincts while expanding them in GOP precinct; calling elderly and Hispanics saying they can "vote by phone"; thousands of notices sent to encourage voting on Nov 8; suppressing millions of votes through photo ID law; eliminating early or Sunday voting since mostly Dems have voted then; providing too few voting booths in Dem areas; sending out trained intimidators; putting up billboards saying you can't vote without an ID when in fact the courts struck down the requirement for this election; throwing away Dem registrations; etc. These low-lifes would do anything to gain the WH and it's simply unconscionable. This GOP movement to suppress Dem votes has never been so blatant and is wholly undemocratic.

Scamming seniors. Why is it always Republicans who engage in these awful tactics? Conservatives like to claim that both sides do it, but it simply isn't true. A vote for Romney is a vote to endorse a fundamentally dishonest and disrespectful campaign. The voters deserve better than this from a presidential campaign. They also deserve to see Romney's actual budget numbers and the tax returns he is hiding.

"it's not illegal in most states to deceive someone about the timing or place of an election, or to lie about a candidate's political affiliation." If it was illegal then 98 % of TV ads would be breaking the law! The folks doing this are bottom of the barrel, end-justifies-the-means lowlifes without morals. Oh wait, picture ID voting will make this stop. right.

Isn't it amazing? The party screaming the loudest about voter fraud is the party committing it!
