Mike at Mike’s America has an important post up about the upcoming election and the dirty tricks played by the Democrats:
[…]Registering voters and getting them to the polls is not enough. In the past six years we’ve witnessed a slew of dirty tricks that undermine the sanctity of “One man. One vote.”
The Democrat attempt to exclude military ballots in Florida 2000 and recount only selective precincts where Al Gore was strongest was only the preview of what was to come.
In the 2004 presidential election, attempts to affect the vote in key states with fraud, harassment, vandalism, violence and intimidation reached epidemic levels never seen before in American politics.
And expect things to get worse. After all, Democrats continue to be fed a steady diet of hate speech directed at Republicans from Howard Dean, the Chairman of their party, on down.
When Dr. Dean states that he “hates Republicans and everything they stand for” and later goes on to suggest that: “We’re in a battle between good and evil and we [Democrats] are the good.” it hardly goes without notice among the ranks of those who are prepared to do anything to win the “battle” for “good.”[…]Yet even before Dr. Dean began his role as chief validator of the hate campaign, Democrat activists in the 2004 election assumed the mantle of “absolute moral authority” and went on sprees of violence, vandalism, theft and intimidation directed at Republicans.
When Angry Democrats Attack documents the cases in what was once regarded as peaceful Minnesota. Politburo Diktat has a list with details of multiple reports in several states of:
* Gunshots fired into GOP Headquarters in two states.
* Organized Union gangs invading, and in some cases vandalizing GOP HQ’s in several states.
* Multiple reports of burglarized GOP offices and thefts.
* Nazi swastikas burned into lawns, spray painted on private property and campaign signs.
And in a direct attempt to influence the outcome of a close election in Wisconsin Michael Barone reports: “the sons of state Sen. Gwen Moore (who would be elected to Congress that day) and Acting Mayor Marvin Pratt slashed the tires of some 25 buses leased by the Milwaukee County Republican Party to take voters to the polls on Election Day.”[…]The bottom line is that those who feel an “absolute moral authority” in a battle against “evil” may feel justified in breaking the law to achieve their ends. Of course this is exactly the definition of fascism and the danger it represents to democracy. Since most of these crimes go unpunished, we can only expect more of the same. Beware!
Beware is exactly right. Recently we had cases such as:
Donovan Riley, who dropped out of the race for a state Senate seat after allegations arose that he voted twice in the same election in 2000, was charged today by Waukesha County District Attorney Paul Bucher with voter fraud (read the criminal complaint).
Riley is scheduled to make his initial appearance in Waukesha County Circuit Court on Sept. 11 a single count of felony election fraud-voting more than once.
Riley was running for the seat held by incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeff Plale of South Milwaukee and was to face Plale in the Sept. 12 primary election.
All Children Matter, a pro-school-choice group, filed a complaint with the Wisconsin Elections Board claiming that Riley voted both in Wisconsin and in Illinois in the 2000 election.
Democrat Party poll workers Charged.
Each posted a $5,000 bond by Wednesday afternoon and were released from custody. The trio faces a combined 37 counts — all but two of them felonies — alleging they forged a variety of election documents to not only fake votes but to make it appear that two poll workers who didn’t work were present for the Sept 15 election. Democrat Ford defeated Republican challenger Terry Roland by 13 votes…..
Three Shelby County election workers faked votes in an effort to throw last fall’s District 29 state Senate race to Ophelia Ford, prosecutors alleged Wednesday.
Unsealing an indictment that charges the trio with illegal voting, making false entries and other crimes, Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Bill Gibbons said the workers at now-dissolved Precinct 27-1 forged at least three votes, including two in the names of dead voters.
However, Ford, a Democrat who won a razor-thin victory only to be ousted from office in April when the Senate voided the election, wasn’t involved in the plot, Gibbons said.
“There was an effort on the part of certain individuals in Precinct 27-1 to cast some illegal votes for Miss Ford, but I stress that there was nothing to indicate that she knew anything about that,” Gibbons told reporters.
Charged are Verline Mayo, 69, the officer in charge of the precinct, and fellow Democrat Party poll workers Gertrude Otteridge, 64, and Mary McClatcher, 52. Each posted a $5,000 bond by Wednesday afternoon and were released from custody.
The trio faces a combined 37 counts — all but two of them felonies — alleging they forged a variety of election documents to not only fake votes but to make it appear that two poll workers who didn’t work were present for the Sept 15 election.
While they continue to fight efforts to have a voter show their photo ID, any photo ID:
JEFFERSON CITY – Jackson County Executive Katheryn Shields and other Democrats filed a legal challenge Monday to a new Missouri law that requires voters to show photo identification at the polls.
The lawsuit filed in Cole County Circuit Court alleges that the law violates the Hancock Amendment to the state constitution by putting unfunded mandates on local election authorities.
They care little that by forcing people who vote to show their ID they could cut down on voter fraud by a huge amount. No they believe that people too lazy to get up off their asses and to go get a ID will vote for a Democrat.
And they may be right.
Be that it may, it is not unreasonable to expect a US citizen to be able to prove who they are before they vote. All the election fraud perpatrated by the Democrats over the years proves this point.
The left will not go down to defeat quietly so we must prepare for their attempts at intimidation, fraud, vandalism and the like.
