November 5, 2019 --- The Day Democracy died in York County, PA

Thank you, Jill Stein.

Your unfounded allegations of election insecurity led to an unfunded mandate by the Pennsylvania Department of State requiring many counties to replace--yet again--their voting machines with systems deemed more “secure”.

Thank you, Governor Tommie (“the Commie") Wolf.

Your capitulation without compensation led some Counties to choose the path of least resistance and greatest inconvenience by selecting paper ballot scanners which were inefficient at best and inoperable at worst.

Thank you,York County Commissioners (only one of which might return to office).

You “got your Dutch up” (rightly) about another unfunded mandate but decided (wrongly) to punish the entire electorate by placing only one ballot scanner machine in each polling place, irrespective of the population served.

Thank you, local Election officials.

You chose to place the ballot marking tables, albeit “separated” by “privacy shields” resembling a college library study carrel in plain view of those standing in line to take a place at the table and in plain view of those waiting to scan their marked ballots at the one and only scanner.

Thanks, y’all.

Some of you--Stein and Wolf in particular--know d@mn well that in 2016 many more people voted for our beloved Donaldus Magnus than would admit, publicly, privately, or to pollsters that they supported him. But in the secrecy of the voting booth and the relative privacy of the touch screen machines they voted their conscience and preserved this nation.

And you know d@mn well that this open “look at your neighbor’s paper” atmosphere will prevent any such repeat in 2020.

Democracy died today in York County, Pennsylvania.

May its death be ONLY here.

I fear for our nation.

May God bless America, now, and always, and unto the Ages of Ages.

35 minutes in multiple lines to cast a non-secret ballot.

This was not the America in which I grew up.

I resent living in the turd world.

Paper ballots filled out and scanned are the most secure and assurable means of voting we have. What are the problems, other than positioning the kiosks?

changing the voting machine and system for the first time during a presidential election is going to be a fustercluck of insane proportions regardless of what the change actually is

Just turn the tables around. Sounds like a polling place was set up by an idiot.

The Springfield Township Judge of Elections should be impeached.

Believe me, I will begin the investigation on the procedure at the opening of business Wednesday morning.

I’ll never forget the first time I pulled that big lever to close the curtain behind me! Wonderful feeling. Enormous machine though.

I was barely able to walk the two and a half blocks to the polling place with my grandfather at my "first time"

He let me pull "the big lever".

I registered to vote on the first day possible before my 18th birthday and haven't missed any elections since.

But this one sucked cat pizz.

I didn’t mind the paper but no curtain was immediately noticed by me.
Completely inappropriate to be “out in the open” while making voting selections!!!
And a second machine to place ur ballot is just one more way to commit fraud!
Only one machine at my polling place as well. Last yr there were 2!!
Wolfe SUCKS!!!!

And add insult to injury, my count has completely blown the 11 PM “news cycle” by releasing ONLY the advance absentee ballot results.

“0/159 precincts reporting”

And its a d@mn pdf, not html like the past decade+

Here’s a hint: The director of elections has more melanin than Øbama. She’s untouchable and uncriticizeable.

The only good thing that Tommie (”the Commie”) has done is to sign into law a voting reform act ENDING straight-party voting (!!!) and allowing ANYONE to cast an absentee ballot without explanation, reason, or excuse.

Believe me, that is what I will do EVERY election henceforth.

And now..well past midnight...results still 0/159 precincts on the County website our "Useless Hay Today" aka USA Today affiliates are proudly/Pravda-like proclaiming that the incompetent/incumbent Sheriff is showing "an early lead" and that there will be something "historic" in the election for county Judge. All on the basis of ≤25 K absentee ballots. Soviet style elections. Soviet style reporting. RIP, America.

This started in PA over 10 years ago when in Centre county when the Democrats, after have packed child Democrats coming from the indoctrinating high schools of our country into Penn State turning the county to blue from solid red. Them Democrats took goo electronic machines and trashed them for paper ballots after PSU professors testified they were hackable; their studies being funded by an out side group.

Honor means nothing in Pennsylvania, anything can be bought.

PSU students are too stupid to think for themselves.
