View Diary: NRO: Romney would have won if we had just changed the rules (154 comments)

  •  My concern is... (0+ / 0-)

    ...that in the deep red states, there would be essentially no oversight (as things currently stand), so thousands or even hundreds of thousands of votes could be suppressed or fraudulently counted.

    Florida was a freaking disaster, but in part that was because the Republicans arranged for rules that allowed counting more votes among their constituencies than ours. And ultimately, they won by shutting down the count.

    And that all happened with lots of Democrats involved in the process and the eyes of the nation on it. Imagine what they could do in states with few Democratic officials and not much outside visibility.

    I'm not opposing NPV -- I'm saying that it MUST come with enforced national standards.
