    Yes...they have a secret magical talisman they bring out at every disputed election.

      While this is correct, it does have a lot to do with States Rights.
      And once again, the question arises - why should the distinction between states matter?

      We already have the Senate. There's no reason to fudge the election for President when there's already a vehicle for all states to have equal representation.

        You ought not to discuss the idea of kicking States out of the Country considering where you are from.

          And why should the issues of the States only be vested in one branch of government? The name of this country remains The United States . The power of the State's has been diluted enough.

            what did you think the mason pyramid thing was about?

            we'll be in good shape if this election gets disputed too.

              Boo hoo. Maybe it's time for another civil war so Rhode Island and Idaho can be "free" of oppression, since they'd obviously so bad off if they didn't get free votes.

                Being a Mason, I actually do know what the "pyramid thing" is all about.

                However, that was still a good one!

                  I actually would support Southern Seccession...then the rest of you can do whatever you want!

                          The actual name for the "pyramid thing" is the "All seeing Eye". It is quite funny that it would be the reference used when referring to the dollar as a means of corruption as it stands as the very symbol of why it shouldn't be.

                          On second thought Albert, you get two points for that one...not just one!

                              Hmmm...didn't know about it. Is there any particular pretext it is taking?
