The 2012 election, like the 2004 election, will come down to Ohio.
Ohio has a criminal history of stealing election. Criminal!!
It is essential that many, many international election observers come to Ohio to observe elections, particularly in areas where there are many African Americans and students.

In 2004, Ken Blackwell was the Ohio Secretary of state. He wasn't careful, wasn't secretive. It was obvious to anyone paying attention Blackwell was setting things up to steal the election.
On election day, blacks and the elderly in key voting areas had to stand, in the rain, for 12 hours, waiting to vote.
In Warren County, observers and the press were kept from observing the counting process, with a spurious claim that there'd been a terrorist threat.
At this point in history, with Republicans again controlling the voting system in Ohio-- allocation of voting machines, the use of e-voting machines where no legitmate recounts are possible-- machines that are controlled by a company that Tagg Romney owns a share of-- the likelihood of the presidential election being stolen AGAIN in Ohio is very, very high.
Then, we have the supposedly progressive Center for American Progress challenging reports
that there is risk that the Romney campaign could influence the vote counting. And Chuck Todd, show host on what is usually considered at least liberal, if not progressive MSNBC, tweeting

The odds are that the Ohio elections will be hacked in many different ways and places. Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted has, so far demonstrated that he's hoping to follow in Ken Blackwell's footsteps as a deliverer of Ohio for the GOP. He's already taken his efforts to shut down early voting, mostly used by minorities, to the Supreme Court.
Every Democrat should be calling for Internationl Vote monitoring. Every liberal and progressive should be calling for it.
