Imagine going to vote for your presidential candidate and pushing the button on a touch-screen voting machine -- but the "X" marks his opponent instead.
That is what some voters in Nevada, North Carolina, Texas and Ohio have reported.
Fox News has received several complaints from voters who say they voted on touch-screen voting machines -- only when they tried to select Mitt Romney, the machine indicated they had chosen President Obama. The voters in question realized the error and were able to cast ballots for their actual choice.
"I don't know if it happened to anybody else or not, but this is the first time in all the years that we voted that this has ever happened to me," said Marion, Ohio, voter Joan Stevens.
Stevens said that when she voted, it took her three tries before the machine accepted her choice to vote for Romney.
The Action Network of the REVOLUTION. Mark Dice asks random people to sign his petition that would repeal the First Amendment.
What I find especially surprising, in addition to the overwhelming stupidity of the sheeple signing it, is that Mark isn't even that convincing when he presentst the petition, and yet they still sign it anyway.

Referred to only as “Soldier X” under promise of anonymity, an Army National Guardsman spoke via phone with Infowars Nightly News Producer Rob Dew regarding a recent briefing his unit underwent on actions the military would take in the event that an Obama election loss sparked rioting in America’s streets.
Citing not only recent widespread threats to riot if Mitt Romney were to become the next U.S. president, but threats to actually assassinate him should he win, Soldier X’s superiors dispensed plans of how the National Guard would be responsible for “taking over” and quelling such unrest.
The soldiers were reportedly told “Doomsday preppers will be treated as terrorists.”
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott warned observers with the United Nations-affiliated group Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to stay away from polling places in Texas on Election Day or face arrest, the Huffington Post reported Wednesday.
In a letter sent Tuesday to Ambassador Daan Everts, Abbot said that "groups and individuals from outside the United States are not allowed to influence or interfere with the election process in Texas."
"Having been arrested and chained to a metal chair for nine hours during last week's presidential debate, Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein is suing the Presidential Debate Commission, Federal Elections Commission and both major parties for excluding Third Party candidates from the "closed-door masterpiece" that is the debates.

In the two presidential debates that focused heavily on the economy, there was not a single mention of the Federal Reserve. This is clearly worrisome since the U.S. central bank has a huge impact on the economy. With the Federal Reserve largely to blame for the recent financial meltdown and the rapidly declining value of the U.S. dollar, this is an important economic issue that the presidential candidates should be addressing.
In this documentary you will learn how the aerosols being sprayed into our sky are used in conjunction with other technologies to control our weather. Geo-engineers maintain that their models are only for the mitigation of the now widely debunked theory of global warming.
What is clear is that the chemtrail/geo-engineering can be used as a way to consolidate an enormous amount of both monetary and political power into the hands of the technocratic elites.
Certain international corporations can now leverage weather control to gain power over the Earth's natural systems. This of course, is being done at the expense of every living thing on the planet.
WHY in the World are They Spraying? is a must see film and will revolutionize the environmental movement.
There's mounting fall-out from reports, first broken by The Free Press, that a Mitt Romney-linked company owns the Hart Intercivic voting machines used in key counties in Colorado, Ohio and other states. The stories have stoked new fears about a "stolen" election.
UPDATE: Those worries about a rigged election were given new urgency today as The Ohio-based Free Press editor-in-chief Robert Fitrakis, also a Green Party candidate for Congress, announced plans to file a lawsuit later today seeking an immediate injunction against Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted and the ES&S manufacturer to halt the use of secretly installed, unauthorized "experimental" software in 39 counties' tabulators in an alleged violation of state election law. His attorney, Cliff Arnebeck, has also referred the case to the Cincinnati FBI for a criminal investigation. Arnebeck says, "It's a flagrant violation of the law. Before you add new software, you need approval of a state board. They are installing an uncertified, suspect software patch that interfaces between the a county's vote tabulation equipment and state tabulators."
He adds, "This is criminal conduct. If they're not doing something wrong, why are they covering it up?"
Defense contractor Lockheed Martin heeded a request from the White House today — one with political overtones — and announced it will not issue layoff notices to thousands of employees just days before the November presidential election.
I'm leveraging the power of the scoop-it community to spread the word about this. Please take a moment to coontact one of the news organizations on this list and let them know that these candidates deserve a voice.
Our media is controlled by corporations and interests that do not support an individual's right to be heard. Many of these candidates have a strong following, and if one of them gets even 5% of the vote, we'll be able to get another party added to the ballot for the next election.
Wouldn't it be a breath of fresh air to have more than one party represented? More choices than the tweedle-dee / tweedle-dum scenario we now have in place?
And finally, please re-scoop this post... share it with everyone you know.
President Obama is refusing to comply with the law that requires him to publish forthcoming regulations because he doesn’t want the American public to know the terrible cost of the regulatory barrage he plans to unleash in a second term. So instead of being honest with the American people about what’s in store if he wins, he’s been trying to hide the fact that he intends to move forward with a slew of rules that will destroy hundreds of thousands of jobs and dramatically raise the cost of energy on American families.…
The bottom line is that President Obama knows he can’t win reelection if Americans know the truth. It’s bad enough that he’s hiding his second term agenda — it’s even worse that he’s breaking the law to do it. The American people deserve more from their President.
Ford Motor Company and Dow Chemical Company are just two of a growing number of Fortune 500 companies that are laying off workers at record rates. Just since September 1st, North American companies have announced they are firing more than 60,000 workers, the biggest drop since the start of 2010 (when the Great Recession was supposed to be in recovery). So far this year nearly 160,000 workers have lost their jobs in these companies, 30,000 more than those who were fired over the same period last year.
To add to the misery, earnings reports over the past weeks have been sobering: out of 204 companies reporting so far, 120 of them have reported that sales were below analysts’ expectations. This is a precursor to additional layoffs, according to John Challenger, head of Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc., the oldest executive outplacement firm in the country.
Said Challenger, sales misses are “a sure prescription for layoffs starting to heat up as companies take immediate action to show their shareholders how responsive they are.”
Hewlett-Packard’s announcement that it was laying off 29,000 of its workers exceeded its initial estimates, and Bloomberg said that banks are planning to eliminate another 19,000 positions as the economy continues to falter.
Even one of the bright spots in the BEA report — that consumer spending in the third quarter had exceeded experts' expectations — was dampened when it was revealed that that spending came out of savings.
While Alchemists have long dreamed of turning base metals into Gold, The owners of the Private Bank known as The Federal Reserve have achieved the ultimate magic trick of turning mere paper into gold. G. Edward Griffin, Author of The Creature from Jekyll Island exposes the fraud that is the FED, with a dire warning that the economic policies of the Federal Reserve Cartel will result in the total economic destruction of the American people who are being legally plundered by our collective illusion that the FED is a legitimate Government Agency.
Why did I name by blog "The Reporter from Jekyll Island"?
I do not live on Jekyll Island. I have never even visited Jekyll Island which is off the coastline of Georgia.
The name of my blog is a play on the title of the masterful book by G. Edward Griffin called 'The Creature of Jekyll Island'.
I read the book early on, but am re-reading it now, this time the 5th edition which updates it into the Obama presidency. The referenced creature in the title is the Federal Reserve.
More than anyone else, Griffin shaped by present thoughts about money, banking, the Federal Reserve and the coming economic calamity.
This blog is my meager attempt to thank him for his lifetime of work. I hope he doesn't mind me playing on the title of his book.
