    Default [VIDEO] Democrats File Complaint over Romney's sub "Bribe" to Voters in Wisconsin

    Apparently on election day in Wisconsin, Mitt Romney was handing out free subs to possible voters and encouraging them to vote for him. The Democrats have filed a complaint that states this is bribery and illegal under election law. Mitt Romney is on video encouraging people to vote and then reminding them of the subs in the back. This was picked up on at least two MSNBC shows today (the Rachel Maddow Show and the Ed Show) and a local TV station. The local TV station video is below. The agency where the Democrats filed the complaint is beginning an investigation but says they usually advise candidates not to do this.

    The relevant portion starts about 50 seconds in.

    Mitt Romney and a dumb blonde have their flip flops in common. Neither knows how to "feel" until told by the "smart" person in the room.

    I want Ron Paul to destroy Romney and his record... particularly at the upcoming debate. Of course, Ron destroyed Santorum in the last debate -.-... but people still vote for Santorum that he is "2nd" place. Gosh, people are not informed or they are dumb o_-.

    Ron pretty much slapped Santorum


    Ron needs to kick the shit out of Romney before its too late

    This is unethical and could be viewed as bribery. But since when are bribes and unethical practices an issue in politics?

    Offering free products/services, to win over voters, is considered Bribery.

    Oooooooh. Any lawyers here willing to work for free, and take down Romney?

    No, they have simply succumbed to years of conditioning by the faux conservative "Radio Mafia". This cartel has been programming conservatives with collectivism/pragmatism/authoritarianism for over 20 years now. The only way to break this road to tyranny is to expose the Radio Mafia for who they really are - A cartel of left leaning con-men hell bent on the destruction of America. Their trick - First garner trust via conservative rhetoric, second, gently condition listeners into excepting principle compromise, then simply steer the herd off the cliff through the promotion of establishment left leaning candidates. ie- Bush/McCain/Romney/Santorum/Gingrich promotion vs. Ron Paul/Debra Medina/etc liberty candidate demonization.

    It really is just that simple.

    I think that is why they are upset. Not the act of bribery; but rather than Romney was so cheap about it.

    Yep. "Man I'm really worried about this $16 Trillion debt, I'm trying to find a candidate who is serious about reduc . . . —oh, man, that looks good. I'll have the Chicken Ranch and Bacon on Italian bread, toasted, with banana peppers, bell peppers, tomato . . . "

    You know, I'm not going to defend Romney here, but the nanny-state democrats don't have much room to talk, either. I go into Subway here in Georgia and I see a flyer posted on the cash register describing how to order a sandwich and be able to purchase it with food stamps. Apparently the food cannot be sold 'heated'. You must order a cold-served sandwich. However, you can ask them to toast it for you (I suppose as some sort of favor, lol)after you have paid for it with your food-stamp card. It's a weird-ass loophole if you ask me.

    Candidates are not allowed to buy votes when running for office. But once they're in, they can enact all sorts of ludicrous 'vote-buying' policies to keep them in office.

    Unfortunately, the rest of us don't deserve it but have to endure it.

    So it's ok to vote someone into office hoping to get a piece of hundreds of millions of $$ in domestic handouts, but handing out a few sandwiches is an abomination.

    Yeah, that makes sense.

    Chaos in 2008

    Viviano, working with screenplay writer and director Gigi Gaston, produced in 2008 a documentary, “We Will Not Be Silenced,” based on interviews from participants in Democratic Party primary caucuses. They accuse the Obama administration of illegitimate and illegal acts, including threats, intimidation, lies, stolen documents, falsified documents and busing in voters in exchange for meals.

    No, she died, only to years of conditioning by the "mafia-radio" false conservative. This agreement is the order of the day with collectivism conservative / pragmatic / authoritarianism over 20 years. The only way is to expose it to break the tyranny, the Radio Mafia for what they really are - a cartel of crooks left leg bent on the destruction of America. Their things - First Trust Garner conservative rhetoric, the second condition, except for soft auditors compromise principle, it is sufficient to send the herd off the cliff left by the promotion of the implementation of approved candidates. ie Bush / McCain / Romney / Santorum / Gingrich against Ron Paul promotion / Debra Medina / etc demonization freedom candidate.
