I’m an Oregonian. Help! Deliver me!
Polling shows that the silent majority in the state are conservatives. The elections always went our way until ‘Vote by Mail’ became standard– we haven’t won a single election since. Gee, do you think there might be some Fraud going on by any chance?
I'm in Colbert, WA, we're controlled by 3 counties on the left side of the mountains.

Vote by Mail = don't waste your stamp, we throw it away anyways
Oregon is just like the rest of the nation, pretty much. The large cities are liberal, the rural communities are conservative. Unfortunately, for state-wide elections, the population of the large metro areas exceeds the population of the rest of the state, and the tail is always wagging the dog.
The other aspect is the large number of illegals in the state. So far, Oregon requires proof of citizenship to get a driver's license - but they keep pushing for more and more lax rules on voter registration. I'm guessing that if illegals want to participate in the mail-in voting Oregon has, they can. Even more importantly, Prog organizations out there are getting them registered and 'assisting' them with their voting. With liberals in charge of the ballot box at the state level and in the metro regions, you can count on the government not doing anything to clean up the registered voter list.
Yes, Kaoscontrol. Definitely. If a Democrat is in charge, there's fraud.
Lightning (and others), unlike absentee balloting, vote-by-mail doesn't really mean everyone mails in their ballot. On election day and a few days prior, drop boxes are provided at various locations (such as libraries) where you can drop your ballots. Nobody in my family has ever had to invest in a stamp to vote. Also, certain locations have volunteers out front collecting ballots at drive-by drop-offs. The ballot must be received by closing time on election day in order to be counted. I'm not sure what the rules are for absentee ballots, but I believe they are the same as other states. I'm confident they don't throw away ballots any more than they do in other states with poling stations, the real issue is that you don't really know who has been 'assisted' with their voting choices when the ballots are filled out and signed - because of this the opportunity for voter fraud is very high, which I believe is your primary point.
Yes, there's always the possibility that fraud is present. But with the way things are, the silent majority can no longer sit by and watch as the progressives take control using said means.

Almost the exact scenario occurs in the opening scenes of the recent movie “Far From the Madding Crowd”.
I do wonder why these sheep don’t have a coral a safe distance away from a 70 foot cliff’s edge. (In the film the sheep are corralled, but break down the fencing when the dog chases them).

Disney is good at fairytales and fiction. This will rightfully give Darwin and his theory as much credibility as Jack Sparrow in the “Pirates” franchise.
Maybe they should do bible stories....that would be a really good source of fiction. and fairytales.

Yeah! Lets take evangelism and make it a marketing ploy! Gee– we could get more millennials into our churches if we just passed out FREE BEERS before the sermons!
This kind of pandering always ends up watering down the message. Jesus’ words were misunderstood and to many even offensive, but he still spoke the truth in love. Those who responded realized their need for forgiveness and deliverance– not because Jesus chose politically correct ways to express himself.
Today matt 23:24 stuck out at me. Jesus told it like it was. Great word pictures!

“Societies don’t, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior”
…Things like the Civil War and the freeing of the slaves?
Doesn’t he realize that (other than Nancy Pelosi and Hillary) Most of us weren’t alive 200 years ago and didn’t own slaves, and therefore are NOT RESPONSIBLE for the racism that was part of that time? Don’t you just love how this idiot paints all caucasians with a broad white brush of blame? I want to run screaming from the room!

When will these spineless idiots we sent to Washington stand up to this President and STOP him from seizing every last ounce of our freedom? When??Everyday it’s one enraging headline after another… Do something!
Drone Free Zones are like Gun Free Zones. Only the cops and criminals are exempt.
They only let me hit the thumbs up 1 time.......otherwise your comment would still be adding up the thumbs!
WELL WE ALL COULD JUST "BLOW THEM OUT OF THE AIR"....after all I OWN the air space over my home....well don't I.....that's their excuse for the gyro-copter flying over the "Fence"....

The left is so inconsistent – what happened to tolerance of Bruce’s Conservative Christian Republican views? What if my tweet said “Eww… Bruce Jenner is Transgendering! I am disgusted! Barf!” I’d be immediately labeled a hater…
They're being ironic. I realize your understanding of joke structure probably never made it past the "Knock knock" phase, but let me enlighten you:
This is what comedians call "The ol' switcharoo." You take the obvious criticism ("Eww... Bruce Jenner is transgender?! Sick... Keep it to yourself, pervert) and replace the adjective with the humorous/ironic ("Eww... Bruce Jenner is Republican?! Sick... Keep it to yourself, pervert...)
Are you following? Shall I further explain irony to you? Do I need to speak more slowly for you to keep up?

She’s right about one thing: seeing who is president scares the hell out of ME!
People wish the folks on the right dead almost nonstop. As Christians just take it. That is true of course but if and when someone reacts in the flesh get ready. I like her music but people need to grow up and quit being so sensitive.

“Transphobic”? Why is the left always so “Comediphobic?”
