CBS Affiliates Slip Election Results Early

Oct 22, 12 CBS Affiliates Slip Election Results Early

Invitations to the After Party

Originally reported in The Daily Caller, KPHO, a CBS affiliate in Phoenix, AZ, and WCPO in Cincinnati, OH, accidently ran pre-programmed election results 2 weeks ahead of the election.  Now, not that I’ve been trying to tell folks that it’s a rigged game for some time now, but is there more we could show you to convince you of this?  Not that results can’t be tweaked in foresight, now that the cat’s out of the bag.

Exactly what would it take for American’s to seriously question their government?  Was the lack of differentiation on any particular policy between Barrack Obama and Mitt Romney not convincing enough?  Was the fact that they share many of the same donors not convincing enough?  The Primary cheating that resulted in Party Chairs resigning?  Time to wake up America!

  1. The difference in the minds of the American people is a letter of the alphabet. That, and the refusal to accept reality when both parties have candidates that don’t even come close to resembling what each party is “supposed” to stand for. I have heard MANY people even ADMIT that it is more important for them to be on a winning “team” than for them to vote for someone else that will lose, even if their vote if for someone that they supposedly don’t like. It is a sad and amazing aspect of human nature, or at least most humans’ nature. It’s especially sad when if they only considered voting for someone else, there “logic” would break down and apply the other way. Being part of a collective is much more important to most people than anything else. It is evident in situations of abuse, when that collective is a family, and the abuse is allowed to continue, and it is evident quite similarly in politics for the same reasons.

  2. Thanks for the comment Dan. Nice logo and nice blog!

    I have been a democrat councilman changed over to the republican party and am totally upset at what I see in both parties. I am thinking of looking int the Libertarian party but I have some resevations 1. being marijuanna as an okay product on the streets. I drove school bus and have a problem with the idea that making “M” legal will take the bite out of people driving under the influence would be hard to put a fix on as it takes months for it to leave the body.

    I personally don;t and haven’t used “M” but I do know that the product HEMP could be used to make rope, clothing and many items in the building industry. It would also cut don the problem we are having with the gangs selling it and making crime a by product of something we could amend by making it legal. But again we do have considerations to look at.

    • Welcome to the After Party Jim! I was always a registered Republican, because I thought that they believed in limited government. Turns out I was wrong, and that they just like a different flavor of big government. I’m inclined to believe that people would generally get along if the government would just get out of the way and let the people live their lives. The economy would flourish as well. You have to remember that every dollar taken from the productive sector and misallocated by a government bureaucrat stifles the economy. I used to rail against my brother smoking marijuana when he was in high school, for no other reason than it’s illegal. That said, nobody likes drug prohibition more than the cartels and big pharma. I had a hard time understanding why Mitt Romney was against prescription medical marijuana, but found synthetic THC acceptable for medicinal purposes. It’s all a game of money. Let me offer you a different perspective though: the Constitutional perspective.

      The Constitution limits the abilities of the Federal government to write legislation. If not specifically enumerated to the Federal government, the power goes back to the States, by the 10th amendment. In 1919 the US ratified the 18th amendment and instituted alcohol prohibition. It was found to be an abysmal experiment in social engineering and later repealed with the 21st amendment. The important takeaway however, is that if Congress understood that the Federal government didn’t have the authority to regulate alcohol, and therefore must get ratification from 3/4 of the state legislatures, how is it that their successors prohibit drugs without similar consent from the state legislatures? Drug prohibition, right or wrong, is unConstitutional.

      Thanks for the message!
