It’s time to talk politics

With the US Presidential elections only a couple of days away it’s time to talk politics. I’m not going to endorse either candidate, though if you know me at all you’ll know whom I prefer. I live in New Zealand and obviously can’t vote in US elections, but nonetheless the outcome will effect me, just as it will effect the entire world. The hactivist group Anonymous has recently released a video saying that they are watching Karl Rove, previously a senior advisor to George W. Bush, and will release any information that suggests he is trying to steal the election for the Republican party. Remember the “hanging chads” in the 2000 Presidential election that Al Gore lost by just a few hundred votes. Some commentators and bloggers are claiming that the right wing is calling the election “too close to call” to soften people up for a surprise win by Romney when they rig the ballot.
