The election is still more than two weeks away, and already a tremendous amount of evidence has emerged that operatives from both major political parties have been committing election fraud. There have been reports of dead people being registered to vote, of voter registration forms being tossed in the garbage, and of activists purposely helping people get registered to vote in more than one state. We have not had a presidential election this closely contested since Bush v. Gore back in 2000, so there has been a tremendous amount of concern that one side (or potentially both sides) may be tempted to cheat. Supporters of Obama and Romney have both been charged with breaking the rules before. We all remember the ACORN voting scandals from the 2008 election, and what Romney operatives did to Ron Paul in the state of Maine during primary season was absolutely criminal. Anyone that believes that there are not operatives on both sides that would be willing to do “whatever it takes” to win this election is simply being delusional. Politics in America has become a very dirty game in this day and age, and the truth is that an increasing number of activists on both sides truly believe that “the ends justify the means” when it comes to trying to win an election.
The integrity of our elections is of paramount importance. After all, if our right to vote is taken away, what other way do we have to change things?
Sadly, the integrity of our elections has been called into question in recent years. We all remember what happened back in 2000. If another presidential election ends in similar fashion it could shake our system to the core.
A study that was released back in February by the Pew Center on the States found some very disturbing things. The following are a few of the statistics from their report…
-Nationally, one out of every eight voter registrations is inaccurate.
-Approximately 2.8 million Americans are registered in two or more states.
-Somewhere around 1.8 million registered voters are dead.
Those are some very disturbing numbers. But the truth is that our system of voter registration is very vulnerable to fraud. Just check out what has been happening down in Florida…
Strategic Allied Consulting is the company founded and head by Nathan Sproul, the former executive director and leader of the RNC in the state of Arizona. In 2012, Sproul was employed by the RNC and the Mitt Romney campaign to do voter work in five swing states: North Carolina, Florida, Virginia, Nevada and Colorado. The public record shows that Sproul was paid more than $3 million this year by both the RNC and the Romney campaign to do voter registration drives in those five states. In Florida, from January through September 2012, Strategic Allied Consulting was paid $1.3 million.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has launched an immediate criminal investigation of Sproul and the Strategic Allied Consulting because of allegations of criminal acts of voter fraud across the state of Florida. There are allegations of dead people being registered to vote as well as numerous other voter registration infractions in attempt to increase Republican voter rolls. As soon as the news hit about the criminal allegations, the RNC’s national office fired Sproul and his firm.
Democrats have been howling over that incident and another incident that just happened down in Virginia.
One Republican operative has been accused of throwing voter registration forms into a dumpster. The following is from a recent article posted on the Brad Blog…
A man originally reported to have been working for the Republican Party of Virginia was arrested by the Rockingham County, VA Sheriff’s office on Thursday and charged with attempting to destroy voter registration forms by tossing them into a dumpster behind a shopping center in Harrisonburg, VA.
“Prosecutors charged him with four counts of destruction of voter registration applications, eight counts of failing to disclose voter registration applications and one count of obstruction of justice,” according to a report late Thursday afternoon from TPM’s Ryan Reilly. More charges could be forthcoming, according to officials.
If any of these allegations are true, they are deeply, deeply disturbing. Nobody should be cheating when it comes to voter registration.
There is evidence that Democrats have also been involved in widespread voter fraud this election season. In fact, apparently Obama campaign staffers have been very willing to help Obama voters get registered to vote in more than one state. The following is from a recent article by Mac Slavo….
When undercover reporters visited various locations across the country they received the same response from Obama campaign staffers – that it’s basically okay to vote multiple times if you happen to be registered in two or more states.
In Houston, Texas, for example, the Project Veritas reporter made her intentions known, and rather than being rebuffed for her planned illegal activity, she was provided assistance with obtaining the proper forms to be registered in two states and was told to say “I don’t know” if the double-voting ever became an issue.
Similar situations unfolded at other DNC funded community organizations.
Sadly, the mainstream media has brushed most of these stories under the rug. They want us to continue to believe that there are no significant problems with the integrity of our elections.
But obviously we do have some problems.
So what can be done about them?
Well, some states have passed strict voter ID laws in recent years in an attempt to cut down on election fraud, but Democrats have been attacking these new laws like rabid attack dogs.
In fact, they have been very successful in getting courts to strike down many of these new laws. The following is a list of voter ID laws that have been struck down in recent months that is from a recent article that was posted on Ohio.com…
Texas voter ID law struck down Aug 30
Pennsylvania voter ID law struck down.
Wisconsin voter ID law disallowed for 2012 election.
Ohio voter ID law struck down by two courts and rejected by Supreme Court.
Arizona “proof of citizenship” voting law struck down.
Florida voter registration law and shortening early voting days struck down.
Missouri voter ID law struck down.
South Carolina’s voter ID blocked by court for 2012 election.
Democrats attacked these laws because they believe that voter ID laws would hurt their candidates.
But shouldn’t the integrity of our elections be more important than who wins or who loses?
You would think, but that is not the way things work in America today.
Both sides deeply hate each other and are incredibly suspicious of one another.
The Democrats are so afraid of potential fraud by Republicans that they have even complained to the United Nations. So this election day there will be 44 UN observers stationed around the country watching for “voter suppression activities by conservative groups”…
United Nations-affiliated election monitors from Europe and central Asia will be at polling places around the U.S. looking for voter suppression activities by conservative groups, a concern raised by civil rights groups during a meeting this week. The intervention has drawn criticism from a prominent conservative-leaning group combating election fraud.
The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), a United Nations partner on democratization and human rights projects, will deploy 44 observers from its human rights office around the country on Election Day to monitor an array of activities, including potential disputes at polling places.
Of course the biggest source of potential election fraud is our voting machines. In recent years there have been a multitude of very serious “irregularities” that have been produced by computerized voting. For much more on this, just check out this article for a long list of very serious voting machine problems over the past decade.
It is just so easy to hack into computers these days, and just changing a very small percentage of the votes can completely change the outcome of an election.
On this upcoming election night, stay alert for any reports of voter fraud or statistical “irregularities” in the results. I have a feeling that the integrity of the results may be a major issue this time around.
