    Well, there is a reason a full contingent of election observers is being sent to the US this cycle....

    If it's Tuesday, it must be Trump doing more harm to America.

    Can't wait to see this ingrate defeated, hopefully he just exits the spotlight afterward.

    Every person speaks their own personal dialect.

    Dialect is not a verb. On cannot dialect. You can speak in a dialect. You can even understand certain dialects. But it is not a verb, and does not represent a separate language.

    As to the article referenced, the quote is suggesting intimidation, cause that's what "making them nervous" is. And it IS illegal.

    Kapow... pedantic. You can absolutely dialect when you bro.

    Do you even American, bro?

    Let me correct you with all the powers of a pedant... it is "One cannot dialect". You wrote "On cannot dialect". But yeah lets harp on the guy in the OP who thinks American is a language...

    For the record, nobody was complaining about the original poster.

    Voter intimidation of this sort such as making voters nervous is illegal indeed and has very stiff penalties so these people will be taught a lesson if they try anything. That being said there's a cop in every poll site (at least here in New York) so I'd like to see them try.

    I like how he says he's not going to do anything illegal, and then proceeds to describe doing something illegal.

    BTW you can't watch polling booths even if you're a poll watcher. Even the poll workers there can't watch the booths. Hell even the cop there isn't allowed to do that.

    The British/American dual national English literature professor who does not 'dialect' please raise their hand.

    What is "Hispanic"? It's the first time I hear anybody say they speak that.

    This makes me want to get someone from the streets speaking street slang (slizzle it fo' my brizzles, my frizzles), someone with a thick New York/Philadelphia/Boston accent, someone from the South with a deep southern draw, and someone from Hawaii speaking Pidgin to all be stuck in a room together for 6 hours trying to translate what each other is saying. :D

    "Speak American" ... I just died a little on the inside. Can't stand when people say it like this.

    An Australian once told me Americans usually said that they did not understand (the accent), but I had no problem.

    Canadian French now, that can be tough (the meaning).
