Why do American election results today take so long to fully tally up?

08 Nov

In Canada, with old-fashioned paper ballots, we still manage to have results the same day, in any given election.

In America, machines are used, which ought to make the process faster in theory, and I understand there never used to be delays like there are now, but now, despite modern technology, it takes forever for some results to come in, and there’s contesting results which hardly seem that close, and on it goes…

Why, you’d think there was widespread electoral fraud going on, baked right into the process!

But that couldn’t be it, could it… 😉

    In a word: fraud. So many times, the margin of victory is much smaller than the margin of error. That is a statistical near impossibility, but it happens all the time. That fact alone tells you all you need to know. We don’t even have citizenship ID requirements to vote, and one has the legal right to a ballot in scores of foreign languages. I don’t have the nerve to even imagine moving to China and demanding the right to participate in Chinese politics and assert the right to do so in English, and at their expense. But the reverse is the norm in the states.

    Now, consider the tens of thousands of people at every one of Trump’s rallies, plus scores of thousands outside who couldn’t get in. Add to that the 40-50,000 views PER CHANNEL of his rallies on every YouTube live showing them, to say nothing of Instagram, Twitter, FB, etc. Virtually all of the comments on those channels were overwhelmingly positive.

    Compare this to Hussein’s rally in southern Florida last week. He couldn’t fill a small room with attendees, and many of the ones visible in the background of the extremely tight shot were evidently paid to be there. I say that because there was a cheerleader urging them to cheer and wave signs just before Hussein came out to speak. Even at that sparsely attended event, Hussein was heckled multiple times. Plus, the live comments I saw were overwhelming negative.

    The ratio of support for nationalist candidates and globalist candidates in the general public would seem to be approximately the same as those who attend rallies or watch coverage of the different candidates. Add to this the fact that there is little organic support for globalism because it is contrary to the organic self-interest of all citizens. Support for globalism is sustained by propaganda alone.

    The fraud and cheating by the globalist is rampant. And it stinks.

    2 years after my grandmother died, she voted democrat for the first time in her life! That was in 1990.

    Hey, even with Dibold’s unsecured Windows-based voting machines, all that fraud and associated hacking takes time! /sarc 😋

      Ha! 🙂

      Years ago, a reactionary paleoconservative Canadian commentator noted that “the wheels of injustice grind just as slowly as the wheels of justice”, which is no doubt often true, except when the System makes it a priority to hurry up and fuck over their enemies faster. 😉

    “I believe in democracy as long as the Democrats win.” Been the rule in Chicago for over half a century.
