Confessions Of A Closet Republican
Everyone who deserves to vote should have the right to vote, it is every citizen's inalienable right to do so. But there are some unethical and criminal types who seem to think it's okay to vote multiple times to ensure their particular candidate wins, and that's what ACORN is encouraging with their sketchy voter registration efforts. Whether they are directly complicit or not, the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (better known as ACORN) is being investigated for voter registration fraud across the country, from Nevada to Ohio to Florida and everywhere in between. On
e of the major problems is that people hired by ACORN to register voters are being paid per name, and with quotas to fill, they'll do anything to get signatures, including bribing people who have already registered. One Ohio man, under investigation, was paid cash and cigarettes to register a whopping 73 times! Another Cleveland pizza delivery guy being questioned about the 10 to 15 times he registered to vote he was approached multiple times by ACORN workers while sitting in a public square. He said the group's solicitors told him they were getting paid by the name to sign up voters. "I 'd be like, 'No, I'm already registered," Barkley said. "Then they just asked me again, like, 'I need a job, I'm just trying to hold on to a job. So would you sign it for me? I need 25 or more. I need a certain amount of them.' So me being the kind-hearted person, I say, 'Yeah.'
There are also reports of new registrations in dead people's names, and many with false phone numbers and addresses. A CNN video report (below) describes how at least 50 percent of the newly registered voters in one county alone were totally bogus.
ACORN seems unconcerned about all the allegations of voter fraud, and claim they are a non-partisan organization. However, they endorsed Barack Obama, and Obama's campaign donated $800,000 to ACORN to help with its primary 'get out the vote' registration drive. ACORN's emphasis is to get lower income citizens to vote, which is fine, but we know that they tend to vote Democratic. And, if the driving force behind this effort happens to have endorsed a Democratic candidate, odds are they will be pushing that candidate.
As much as ACORN (and the Democratic Party) swear they are not attempting to steal this election, it looks like it to me. I think they will do anything to get Obama elected, even if that means bribing people to vote, illegally. Voter registration fraud <strong>can</strong> potentially lead to election fraud, especially when the only states that require a photo I.D</a>. to vote are -<strong>Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan and South Dakota</strong> . There's an emergency petition being circulated to require photo i.d.s to cast one's ballot. You can sign the online, emergency "voter identification" petition
We live in a democracy! One would think we were beyond voter fraud. What message do we send to the world at large, when we are just as guilty as some of those countries we've sanctioned for stealing elections.
