Democratic operatives prepared to try to steal more elections in November?

The idea that an election is fair is a cornerstone of any democracy. Yet, in the last 8 years, U.S. elections have been plagued with the aura of corruption and scandal. Worse yet, they have become national and international spectacles. We can't very well spread democratic ideals if we can't even guarantee that our own elections are fair.


This from AP - "Records containing personal information on more than 150,000 voters are missing at city election offices, and officials are trying to determine if the files were lost, moved or stolen.

The Denver Election Commission is also trying to figure out why officials didn't learn the records were missing until June 1, even though they are believed to have disappeared nearly four months earlier.

"We will get to the bottom of it," commission spokesman Alton Dillard told the Rocky Mountain News in Saturday's editions.

Police were notified about the missing records Saturday. The microfilmed voter registration files from 1989 to 1998 were in a 500-pound cabinet that disappeared when the commission moved to new offices in February. The files contain voters' Social Security numbers, addresses and other personal information."

This might be incompetence. It might be worse.

On the other hand,Democrats bleat incessantly about Republicans stealing elections. Some argue that Bush intentionally disenfranchises voters. I did a Google search of "Philadelphia Unions intimidate voters" and didn't see word 1 in the first two pages of the search about union VIOLENCE against Republican volunteers. It happens.

Want to see the Democrats' true feelings about the First Ammendment? I challenge anyone, anywhere to wear a Santorum for Senate shirt in Philly on election day. If you aren't holding a bullhorn and shouting "don't hurt me, I'm trying to win a bet with Honest Abe that Philadelphia Democrats are lawful decent people," you'll end up with at least fifty more stitches than you'll get from the initial beating from the folks who don't speak English, but who can smell a Republican shirt a mile away.

But let's have a look at some recent scandals taken from The American Center for Voting Rights' website:

1) "On Monday, January 24, 2005, five Democrat operatives were charged with felony counts of “criminal damage to property” for slashing the tires of 25 get-out-the-vote vans rented by Republicans early on the morning of Election Day. The vans had been rented by Republicans to help transport observers and voters to the polls on Election Day."

2) "During the U.S. House Administration Committee hearings in March 2005, a common point of inquiry was the issue of phone calls made in an apparent effort to misdirect voters. The committee’s Ranking Member, Rep. Juanita Millender-McDonald (D-CA), stated that Ohio voters were “disenfranchised” when “voters were told … that the presidential election would be on Wednesday the 3rd of November as opposed to November 2nd.”

Ohio voters who had identified themselves as Republicans received telephone calls telling them that the election was to be held a day later than Election Day, that their polling locations had been changed and that they could only vote if they brought four separate pieces of identification to the poll. This information was intentionally deceptive and intended to direct voters to a polling place where they would not be able to cast a ballot."

3) "Seminole Circuit Judge Nancy Alley ordered the DNC, Florida Democratic Party and Democratic Executive Committee of Seminole County to stop “further intimidation, further dissemination of these materials … designed or intended to intimidate or unduly threaten the activities of poll watchers who are duly carrying out their responsibilities” granted under Florida law."

4) "In addition to the intimidating letters sent by the DNC to Republican volunteers, the DNC paid for recorded phone calls to Republican poll observers’ homes in Florida featuring the same message that the court in Seminole County found to be intimidating and misleading.

These phone calls were recorded by former President Bill Clinton and DNC General Counsel Joe Sandler."

And then, down the page:

"Philadelphia has a long history of vote fraud and intimidation. According to press and police reports filed on November 2, this past election was no different. Reports indicate that Republican volunteers in Philadelphia were violently intimidated by Democrat activists on Election Day 2004.

One Republican activist, working as a Bush campaign legal volunteer to monitor the vote in Philadelphia, was “cornered in a parking lot by roughly 10 large men, whom the police later identified as ‘union goons.’” The men tried to tip over the minivan the Republican attorneys were sharing, “punching it relentlessly, breaking parts off and failing to drag us out, they chased us in and out of the dense urban traffic.” It took “a frantic 911 call and a police roadblock” to stop the assault, and the GOP volunteers “had to be secreted out of town to safety by a police escort.”

Some will say that Republicans do this sort of thing also. Maybe, but how many times do you hear about it on the news? Almost never. So the average person thinks that republicans are the sole perpetrators of vote fraud. Well, try my favorite one:

"Exposed: Scandal of double voters:

"Some 46,000 New Yorkers are registered to vote in both the city and Florida, a shocking finding that exposes both states to potential abuses that could alter the outcome of elections, a Daily News investigation shows.

Registering in two places is illegal in both states, but the massive snowbird scandal goes undetected because election officials don't check rolls across state lines.

The finding is even more stunning given the pivotal role Florida played in the 2000 presidential election, when a margin there of 537 votes tipped a victory to George W. Bush. Computer records analyzed by The News don't allow for an exact count of how many people vote in both places, because millions of names are regularly purged between elections."

If memory serves, New York is a decidedly BLUE state. So why talk about this now? It isn't far until November. The war on terror is swinging in our direction. Progress in the economy is booming due in large part to low taxes.

Dead voters voting Democrat in Washington, ACORN registering mythical people nationwide, make believe Democrats who live in vacant lots and a slew of other fraudulent voters can swing an election. Think about it:

It would be devestating to get a congress controlled by the Schumers of this country.

The Republicans are screwing up left and right. But until we can get a viable third party in the mix, one that represents our core values, we cannot afford to let the Democrats run the show. It would be economically catastrophic, endanger our security and leave us to the whims of an expansive and aggressive IRS.

Want to fire the Republicans. OK, I'm with you. Let's get to work now building viable contenders for the 2008 primaries. The short sighted and lazy strategy of staying home could kill us.

Fiscally and literally.
