You know, most of the time when I get questions like these, I just look in the dictionary, or an etymology dictionary :p

Online Etymology Dictionary

As it turns out, the phrase "dead ringer" comes from the term referring to entering a competition under false pretenses. That meaning has a more complicated origin which you can find at the link.

It is no surprise our corrupt governor once again sided with corporations. I can't believe that our residence voted for him, n/m, yeah I can. People had better think very carefully next year, because there is no recall.
