How much money, bribes and fraud does it take to win an election these days anyways?
This article is a work in progress about the election process of 2012, candidates, media blackouts and behind the sciences action to becoming the next president of the united states of America.
It started out like any other year perhaps a bit early with a full house in the GOP looking for the GOP party nomination.
The first vote at the IA Caucus is when things became clearly different from past elections. Vote count discrepancies, voter adjustments and more.
Only four candidates remain, things get a bit hairy with attack ads and name calling. Are these candidates for president or a kindergarten class?... wait, sorry for the insult kids, you kindergarteners act much better than most of these candidates.
Only two candidates remain, yet the media and GOP appear to be blind to their 12 term congress man from Texas.
Little news of the process and delegate count at this point from the larger media sources, other than the occasional romney preemptively declared primary winner.
