Message John Gideon
Guest Blogged by John Gideon of If you have a problem voting, call The Election Integrity Response System at 1-866-OUR-VOTE / 'The state of Florida was on high alert today as an electronic voting machine that was being tested in advance of Tuesday's midterm election went berserk and killed nine in a terrifying rampage.' (Satire) / 'There are reports from at least seven states of voters being harassed by multiple phone calls with recorded messages - "robocalls" - that appear to be a devious manipulation of voter's pre-election advertisement overload.' / Well, it all starts/ends tomorrow. Let's hope things go smoothly in all 50 states and that every losing candidate is satisfied with the results of the election. I'm a dreamer but what the hell......
