Americans take the integrity of our elections for granted. Every citizen has an equal right to vote, and every vote cast is counted. Rubbish.
Citizens in uniform serving overseas, who might vote Republican, are routinely denied the right to vote when ballots are mailed “too late” to be returned in time to count. When a Republican wins a close race, uncounted ballots are “found” in the backseat of a Democrat poll worker’s car.
American elections are getting more corrupt every election year.
I heard Debbie Wasserperson-Schultz still whining the other day about the 2000 presidential election in Florida. You know, the one President Gore won, but Bush stole—even though every time the New York Times and other Democrat lapdog media counted and recounted those Florida ballots, Bush still won.
The Democrats don’t care about the facts of Florida 2000. They need the Gore-win myth to cover their own deliberate corruption of the election process.
Jimmy Carter shows up in every other country’s election as a “fairness” monitor. He ought to stay home and monitor the tide of corrupt elections about to crest in 2012, when the Democrats plan to steal an Obama reelection win fair and square.
The plan goes something like this.
1) Sign up illegal aliens to vote.
I walked door-to-door in 2010 canvassing for Republican congressional candidate Van Tran in the Anaheim, Calif.,-area district now represented by Democrat Loretta Sanchez. Our team ran across people who were listed as registered voters in rolls obtained from the county registrar who openly admitted they were illegal and stated they could not vote and had never voted.
How did the illegals get on the voter roll? The federal Motor Voter Law requires local welfare offices, social service agencies and motor vehicle departments to offer voter registration forms to everyone who comes in, no questions asked. ACORN-like groups have long practiced signing up new “voters” at places where illegals congregate.
In California, the voter registration card requires a check in the box stating you are a citizen of the U.S. The box is always checked and nobody ever questions it.
Does the illegal alien actually vote? Apparently not. Another box on the registration form requests a permanent mail-in ballot be sent to the “voter.” The mailing address is different from the “voter’s” residence address, meaning that the the illegal alien “voter” never receives a ballot and never votes. The mail-in ballots are sent to another location and someone else votes and mails back the ballot for the new “voter.”
Random checks of these mailing addresses show the same addresses over and over. This is election fraud on an organized level. It’s going on now in every state.
Any attempt to stop this corruption would cause Obama to go to court to defend the right of illegals to register to vote
The Obama administration is infamously suing Arizona for daring to enforce federal immigration laws that Obama will not enforce. One such Arizona law requires people registering to vote to provide proof of citizenship. The case of Gonzalez v. State of Arizona challenges the validity of that law.
Last week, the Obama Justice Department filed a late amicus brief in the Gonzalez case urging the court to find that Arizona may not require information to validate claims of citizenship made on a voter registration form.
2) Sign up felons to vote.
Following the 2000 showdown in Florida, the Democrats started a nationwide campaign to register felons to vote. A 2004 editorial in the New York Times, for example, criticized Florida for purging 47,000 felons from the voting rolls while admitting that Florida law barred felons from voting. The editorial castigated 35 states that likewise had some level of restriction on voting by felons.
By 2011, only two states, Kentucky and Virginia, continue to bar felons from voting for life. All other states have “reformed” their voting laws to allow the felon Democrat vote to be counted in 2012.
3) Keep the voting dead on the rolls.
Dead Democrat voters are a tradition in Chicago. Today the tradition is metastasizing to the rest of the country.
In 2011, for example, the state of Ohio reported that 18,500 dead people were still listed as voters. Local registrars were requested to purge the rolls of dead people as required by Ohio law and apparently not consistently done.
A report from Houston, Tex., tells of 4,462 dead voters still on the rolls there, many still voting. Relatives of these dead voters expressed shock that their deceased loved ones were still so involved in politics.
Obama is an activist in this campaign to protect illegal, felon and dead Democrat voters.
A lesser-known provision of the federal Motor Voter law requires all states to make sure no ineligible persons (illegals, felons or dead people) get on the voter rolls. In November 2009, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandez (an Obama political appointee) told a stunned gathering of the Justice Department’s Voting Section that her office would no longer enforce that section of the law.
Fernandez’s exact quote was, “We have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law. It has nothing to do with increasing turnout, and we are just not going to do it.”
All over the country, legislation to require voters to present identification at the polling booth is opposed by Obama’s Justice Department.
Democratic National Committee head Debbie Wasserman Schultz has claimed that requiring people to present I.D. would deter voting, just as Jim Crow laws in the South used to do.
Living, law abiding citizens just have to wonder, when they present an I.D. to conduct just about any kind of business in their daily lives, why the integrity of the vote shouldn’t be protected by requiring voter I.D. at the polls.
Of course if that were required, Obama might not be reelected.
