Polls are skewed

Posted: October 15, 2012 - 8:03am

I don’t believe in “polls.” I have listened to the results of so many polls that they do not really convince me of their authenticity. I think most of them call approximately 1,000 people. So on a poll the other day, I told a big fat lie, which I am sorry about now; I voted for Obama.

i agree Paul

I agree Paul, i never have liked polls as they can and are manipulated i do believe. Numbers are eazily manipulated, as was evident by the Unemployeement numbers showing a preelection miricle jobs report of 7.8% unemployed when California was accidently left out of the poll.
By the way Paul i believe that it's YOUR RIGHTS to either Vote or Not Vote and it's no one elses business whether you did or did not vote, or who you voted for either.
As Americans we are afforded the rights to vote or not vote and has absolutely nothing to do with Citizenship.
One must realize that there are politico-religious groups that will try to inforce Patriotism on others as a means to usher in their politico-religious Totalitarianism Govts. and belittle all those that don't align obey their ideals of whats right or wrong, while absolutely voiding out moral issues which are ment for good of all.
Paul you do realize that confession for our sins to people avails nothing, but that we should try and set the record straight and you have possibly done so.
Go and sin no more by voting for Romney now on Nov. 6th, 21 days from now.
Have a GR8 Day and thanks for your free expression of your opinions as an AMERICAN afforded us under OUR Constitution as a Nation established Under God.

skeptical about political polls.

Here’s a reason to be skeptical about political polls.
TV’s Jimmy Kimmel takes his cameras to the streets in LA and asked people “Who won Last Nights’ debate?”
FOUR HOURS BEFORE the debate. (there was no debate the night before) GOOGLE this clip.

Question: “Who won last nights debate?”

Answer: “I’m goinna go with Obama. I think he was stronger this time around.” “ I think there was booing, wasn’t there booing? It was with Romney right”.

Answer: “Uh that was definitely Mr. Obama..” “He was a little more alert this time.”

Question: “Did you watch the whole thing?”
Answer: Oh YEAH, Oh YEAH.”

Question: “Were there any highlights for you?”
Answer: “There were so many I can’t even tell you.”

Question: “Did you like it more than the first one?”
Answer: “Oh much better.”

Democrats the party of lies, liars, hypocrites and phoney baloney FRAUDS.

Just who's counting votes?

I think many different dictators may have been given credit for the statement "the power is not in the Vote but who counts the vote!" Just a small cooinkidink happening in Wisconsin kinda raises an eyebrow. You can't guess who owns the Electonic Voting Equipment that will be used in the land of 10,000 Lakes? None other than President Obama's biggest supporter George Soros media mogel giant! I know that is probably just a cooinkidink and surely no one would think it's anything but an investment in business on Mr Soros part. Yea that's it just a little hedging incase other investments don't pay off as well. Like a well rounded portfolio you would put all your money down on one bet! This could never pay off when other investments in this campaign crash, could it?
Just heard about Brookfield Properties(BP) recieving the $160 million dollar loan guarantee which was some of the last of Obama's stimulus money. Funny thing about Bookfield Properties is this $70 billion company owns a little park in New York City. Zuccotti Park was made famous bye the Occupy Crowd and shut down 10 days after BP got he guarantee. Why would BP need a guarantee from our hard earned Stimulus Money? Maybe we could ask the legal dept. at BP what they are doing with that loan? I'd bet that Joe Biden's son BP's attorney could come up with many reasons maybe 160 million reasons. What does a Canadian co. like Brookfield Properties really have to do with our economic recovery? I'm sure there are many reasons and it's like the Car Czar thing, when there is no congressional oversite! Who do you get to ask about something like this? Maybe somebody could Snoop it!

"the power is not in the Vote

"the power is not in the Vote but who counts the vote!"
good point BigRedDog.

George Soros will deliver Wisconsin to BHO, just like they invented votes and delivered Al Franken in Minn.

lets not forget the "lets not

lets not forget the "lets not count the votes" that the
[filtered word] strategy encompassed in the original sin
condoned by the [filtered word] supremes.

just think, if the votes had been counted; there
would not have been trillions wasted on two wars;
tens of thousands not maimed for life, and thousands
dead, and the unknown tens of thousands of civilians
dead.

[filtered word] the party of lies, liars and hypocrites.

"A Pennsylvania man with ties

"A Pennsylvania man with ties to Virginia's Republican Party was arrested Thursday on charges of destroying voter registration forms.

Talking Points Memo reports that Colin Small, of Phoenixville, Pa., worked for a firm hired by the Republican Party of Virginia to register voters. Small was charged with destroying voter registration forms, failing to disclose applications and obstruction of justice. Police told WHSV that additional charges may be forthcoming."

[filtered word] the party of lies, liars, and hypocrites.

Our constitution as a nation under god.How can this be if We also proclaim SEPARATION of church,and state?Some want so badly to believe.But the fact still remains. Congress voted unanimously stating.This country is NOT a christian country.Go figure huh! Does one ignore the truth,or does one just fill in the blanks with ones wishing to have it their way?

POLLS ONLY MENT TO DECEIVE

Looks Good for Romney according to polls. But, america does not go by the popular votes and Romney could still loose the election thanks to that crooked electorial college thingy whic is now used to cheat for those choosen ones of both parties.
Obama has done what he was chosen to do. Bring america to the cliffs edge where we will not be able to stop going off that economic cliff and dragging all the worlds economies down with us.
Obama nor Romney will be able to reverse this course we are on and i personally believe God has allowed us to go down because of OUR Nations desire to remove God from every area of our lives, just as history shows the nation of Israel also did and has suffered for that choice of having it their way, instead of Gods way.
We AGAIN have placed OUR hope in governments of men and as TRUE HISTORY shows that has never worked out for good to any, and will not this time either under Obama's New Hope & Change to Believe in.
WE ARE NOT GOING FOREWARD, WE'RE GOING DOWNWARD WITH NO HOPE FROM ANY.
Of course this is a very unpopular poll i am giving of exactly whats going on Globally and not many believe it's true.

Raoulduke a ? from WOW

So you say Obama got his fellow Arab Osama right?
Where is the proof? Did anyone see a body or the video that shows this death?
Where is the body of Obama, I mean Osama, and why did they supposedly drop it in the ocean?
Obama had to drop his golf lesson and be drug to the meeting showing the supposed killing of Osama.
As for the crooked electorial thingy, it was crooked when Obama's cousin Bush Jr was supposedly elected, just like it is crooked now.
Any idea how long before Obama sets up or allows the killings of millions of americans, Democrates and Republicans alike as was done in Lybia on 911?
As i have said a few times, if i was Obama i would do absolutely nothing other than continue to lie about reality of americas down fall and Hope for a New Hope & Change to believe in as we go FOREWARD off that cliff so it will be blamed on that 100% white man President Romney, rather than the present 50% White Arab wanna-be Black man President/Messiah Obama.
Sorry for my view here of what i think is going down with Obama's seeming to want to loose.
I guess it stems from all the years when i was a far left liberal BSer just like they are and understanding exactly what they are saying and doing as they Dupe America.
$10.6 Trillion by the time Bush was done with his 8 year downfall, and $16.5 Trillion so far under Obama in just 3.9 years.
So explain to me again just who is actually causing America to go to hell in a hand basket at WARP SPEED NOW?
If i was Obama i would do as much damage telling lies at every turn so i would loose and could head to that underground vault before the End comes.
OOPS! Thats exactly what he is doing if people would only pay attention to his actions and words.

What say voters can't decide on Candidates next?

Yah, thats the ticket, voters can't pick candidates but must vote for the Choosen Ones only and if you don't then your sanctioned from any form of commerce.
Now thats what true Democracy is ment to be and will be according to some supposed Patriotic americans, against all other americans that reject this Democracy for all.
Amazing how this is exactly whats coming to pass in Governments there SPW, i would venture to say that your a prophet and don't know it, as you push for exactly what God, the God you hate says is coming at the End of Days.
Submit and Obey in our Democracy as it's the only way FOREWARD.
Have a GR8 weekend SPW, your fellow Patriotic American that does vote, WOW.

Romney has it in the bag!

Hate to tell you this since the election is over and Romney will win only because he is taller then our Muslim in Chief! And all polls can generate the response they want to get only by calling people in selected zip codes. Can anyone tell me why we get to select Miss America from over 50 ladies and only two for our next President?

Handed it to the democrats

The Main reason BHO won 4 years ago is the choice of our former Governor Palin as the Republican VP nominy. It really limited the race, and we have paid dearly for promoting a ticket with an old War Hawk and a popular young Lady Governor. Now I think we have two candidates that can stand toe to toe with BHO and JB and Sarah can take her moma grizzly act on the road for the cash flow. But toe to toe Romney looked ready for a punch from Obama during the 2nd debate. And I saw that sheep caught in the headlight look so framiliar when some P-nk realizes they are about to get thier butt kicked real good. Romney stood his ground when BHO looked like a basketball player trying to cut of the base line drive while Romney was standing there sinking free throws.
The real difference I see is Romney has really been there done that and Obama was there and seemed more worried about looking good than taking care of business. Romney made money on the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City! BHO can't tie Romney's shoe! But we have nobody to blame but the Replublican party for the last choice of candidates. That has cost this nation greatly. Now we have somebody with a real head on his shoulders and a real knowledge of how to make an economy work. BHO is a very well groomed, silver tongued, empty suit pumping party policy right in the tied of viens of millions hooked on the goverment entilement needle. Just a little taste is all it takes and your really going to like it! And another one bites the dust, just a dose of the pure ultimate junkies fix, direct deposit straight in the tied of vien. It's like we have been set up for pouring our wealth into millions and millions of inner city ghettos dwellers that are eager to vote for more free stuff!
Alexander Fraser Tytler a famous 18th century scholar said it first "Any democracy will only last about 200 years then the majority of the people realize they can lavish benifits on themselves at the poles. Simply by electing those that promise more free bleep!!" He even drew a coalation between the level of comfort a society enjoys and the rapidity of it's decline! You see it can go to hell real fast. The real Great Depression may well have been a good medicine as hardship tends to strengthen national resolve. But a bailout might not have really been the medicine needed to bring this country together. It may just delay the symptoms or mask them so they go unnoticed until it's real hard to cure! So it's is time to be very deliberate and focussed and folks you just gotta get out there and vote!!
The way things are set up now it's close to having enough votes locked up in the ghetto to propigate another generation and we can't afford that as a nation! We must unlock the land and relocate millions of these inner city ghetto dwellers out on the land and give them an opprotunity to prosper our way out of this huge huge hole of debt we have dug!!
One more question must be asked of BOTH party candidates that hasn't even been mentioned and could well be a main deal breaker for America TODAY! When are we going to stop the trains of corn carrying our countries wealth down the tube of green energy! The use of corn for ethanol is not vialbe and has become a huge stumbling block for the American farm economy. That it has affected every area of the food chain in a negative way is to obvious to ignore. So I hear by challenge BOTH parties to put up some alternatives to corn based ethanol production as the most important economic issue facing America today!

Raoulduke: we Americans DO NOT

Raoulduke: we Americans DO NOT proclaim separation of church & state.

The first writings about ‘separation of church & state’ are not part of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of rights. It was written by a man, in a personal private letter from one citizen (Thomas Jefferson) to others (a Baptist church).

Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. Read the last line, you will see the strong reference to God.
…”And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our fortunes, and our sacred Honor.””

The metaphor about ‘separation of church & state” was used exclusively to keep the state out of the church's business, NOT to keep the church out of the state's business.

The early legal documents did not permit the Feds to ‘ESTABLISH’ a State Church, as they had in England (the Church of England). The Church of England and the government were inseparable.

Spwright is right on target !!
“"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of
religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;””

don't vote based on polls, decide for yourself, be independent.
