Voter Fraud in America

Pages: 1 2

Allegations of voting irregularities have been a staple of American politics since John Adams and Thomas Jefferson first squared off to succeed George Washington as president. Yet, it’s very possible that this year’s election could be about as dirty as any that we’ve seen in this country in many a decade. Emotions are high on both sides. Democrats know that the fate of their president’s agenda hangs in the balance, while many Republicans believe that unless voters send the administration a clear message, there will be no stopping the march toward European-style, nanny-state socialism. With the stakes this high, the temptation to rationalize fraud in the name of the greater good rises in proportion.

The Chicago machine that nurtured Barack Obama’s political career is legendary for its ability to manipulate an election. Indeed, cheating and fraud are such staples of Illinois politics that residents hardly notice any more. It is, of course, always interesting to hear a Chicago news-anchor provide the latest tally of calls to the “Election Fraud Hotline” and no doubt some wagers are won and lost among citizens once the final count is announced. But, for the most part, pay-offs, unregistered voters, dead voters, and all the rest are an accepted part of life in the Prairie State. We’re not proud of that, you’ll understand, we’ve simply come to accept that which we cannot change. This is the political culture that gave us a Barack Obama and, most importantly as far as this Election Day goes, brought political hucksters who believe that the “Chicago Way” is the only way to power.

We’ve already seen the signs, starting – appropriately enough – in Illinois. The Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act (MOVE) requires states to mail absentee ballots to overseas troops, government employees and other Americans living abroad, at least 45 days prior to an election. Thirty five Illinois counties didn’t manage to make the deadline, which is bad enough, but the Department of Justice has declined to pursue any punitive action against the state or the counties in question. Now overseas voters do have other options, but – especially when it comes to the military – there is some question about how many potential voters are aware of those options. Moreover, the DOJ’s unwillingness to even slap anyone’s hand sends exactly the wrong message to the electorate and to other units of government who might also be tempted to flout the law.

Some Nevadans who participated in early voting in Clark County reported that Harry Reid’s name came up pre-checked on the screen when they were voting for Senator. Although no formal complaints have been filed, the allegation is still troubling, and all the more so because of the fact the Service Employees International Union is responsible for maintaining voting machines in Clark County. SEIU, which endorsed Reid and gave over ninety-five per cent of its campaign contributions in 2008 to Democrats, is hardly a neutral party. The union is indelibly tied to the Obama administration’s commitment to expanding the role of the public sector in American life. Whether SEIU tampered with voting machines or not, union members should never have been allowed anywhere near a device that so directly affects their future prospects.

    that is bad … well thank you for the information

  • Chezwick_Mac

    I don't think many appreciate the broader implications of this issue. It's not just a matter of a single election…it is the integrity of our entire democratic system that is at stake.

    If people start believing that elections in America are routinely rigged, we will begin a long descent into anarchy, the progenitor of dictatorship. The first signs will be an ever-growing public apathy, cynicism, and resignation,…which over time will morph into anger, frustration and violence.

    The ballot box is the mechanism with which we vent and express our identity. Undermine its integrity and much more malevolent forms of "expression" percolate to the surface.

    America already has a series of centrifugal forces tugging at its core, young vs old, black vs white, Hispanic vs Anglo, Red state vs Blue state. I'd hate to see us overestimate the depth of what is in fact a thin veneer of civilization – represented most poignantly and practically by the ballot – that keeps us from sliding into barbarism.

    This is huge, folks.

    • mayday521

      Here;s really what is huge – May 21, 2011…check it out folks here: http://www.familyradio.com/

    • Beboper

      You're dam right it's huge. You'd have thought this would have been a very high priority item after the 2000 election for the GOP. Not so – nary a mention of the huge problem this is. We need IDs to walk out on the street in case cops want to see something. But no ID is required in order to vote! Even in Iraq, we insisted on conducting fair elections – not here! Why? Democrats insist on their 'right' to befoul our elections with their fraudulet tactics.

      Requiring IDs in order to vote should be THE issue after this election.

  • Shaun

    In nations such as the north of Ireland and Sri Lanka where the ballot box began a mockery bullets and bombs replaced the ballot box.

  • jsiffla

    this is organized crime at its best…we saw the mob take over the unions…no matter how much our legal system tried….they couldnt stop it…
    and now organized crime is doing its best to take over our government…they are using the unions to do it….can we stop it?

    when future generations look back at us…what will they see?

    will they see an ever complacent population of lazy fat americans that didnt deserve the freedom thier fathers fought and died for…or will the get charged up thinking about how it was back in the days when we fought for thier freedom…and guaranteed that socialists and marxists would not take over the best country in the world…think about it…

  • Red_In_SC

    What is interesting is that this is an issue with "almost" universal appeal. Liberals, conservatives, Republicans, Democrats and Independents all agree that the voting process should be free of fraud. It is a very small percentage of apparatchiks that want to monkey with the process.

  • davarino

    If a guy cant vote or if a non guy votes then we have to take matters into our own hands and that is constitutional

  • Cuban Refugee

    I have a great idea! Why don't we get the reconstituted ACORN, the thugs from SEIU, and the New Black Panther Party to monitor the polling stations, and stand at the doors with billy clubs in hands, just to make sure everything is kosher in our constitutional process?

  • J. Raymond

    What doe the writer mean "we've come to accept that which we cannot change". Voter fraud is the practice of totalitarian regimes and must not be tolerated here. We have to raise our voices about this.

  • American_Flag

    Voter fraud could be running ramped in this country!!! Think about it…how the h*ll did so many loons get into office? Tax cheats, criminals, sex offenders, you name it – they are serving in the Gov't fer cryin out loud.

    If the dems do not get booted from office next week, then that is all I need to know. You then can unequivocally state that the democratic process in our country has been hi-jacked!!"

    It's amazing that we live in a high tech world, but the voting process is so archaic and easy to tamper with results.

    I've been saying this for at least 16 years or more…no one listens, no one cares obviously. Travesty.

    • Concerned

      Once upon a time I would not have believed voter fraud could happen here. Then I worked in my wife's run for State Rep in NH. She apparently lost by a whisper, after three recounts. Years later, someone came up to my wife, and confessed that she had participated in stealing the election from my wife, along with other Dems who were counting the ballots.

      Yes, it can happen, if people do not know right from wrong, and especially if they have adopted the Marxist idea that "The ends justify the means."

      • American_Flag

        I knew it, I knew it!!! When giving the choice between right and wrong, the dems choose wrong, AND! they are not held accountable. They should be tried for treason, and if found guilty shot by a firing squad.

        UN-REAL!!!!

  • American_Flag

    The Govt is clearly high jacking it's citizens…just like any good communist country would. Everything you hear on the news is SPUN. Everything. Propaganda and brainwashing….2 common tactics of a socialist communist regime!

    • Myfreedom

      I hate to agree with you, but I grew up in a communist country before I came here for the freedom, only to experience similar practices here today. I can tell because I lived it. The communist government used promises, bribes, intimidation, propaganda etc. to stay in power. Not too far from some tactics used in our politics here today. These are actually human trades which can be avoided, but I really thought America was better than that. The latest I totaly dispise is to bring handicaped and elderly citizens to the poles and tell them how to vote! How far do we have to go to win!!!! That is one of the clear tactics the communists would use and did use……Shame on us to sink so low…….

  • Sarge3012

    All this voter fraud on the part of Democrats makes me sick. Anyone caught committing voter fraud should be sentence to life in prison.

  • ZOO

    The filth in black robes in the 9th District Court in San Francisco just greased the rail for rampant voter fraud across the country. They have overturned Arizona's requirement of citizenship proof to register for voting. Radical Hispanic groups are out registering illegal aliens as you read this; these groups are immune to legal consequences because the law now only require the registrant's "word" they are a U.S. citizen. Further, Obama has promised Hispanics amnesty to vote for Democrats. It is the perfect storm. The promise from Mexico is to take back the southwest with demographics and the vote. The vermin in the courts have just handed them the keys. We are at war with the Federal government, and somewhere it will hit the fan.

    Wow making money with no job has always on the occasion been extremely difficult; most of the time I get some programs and get money from those. But they are really expensive! Trying to make money without any sort of job experience is even harder. A lot of books are so terrible, although this post surprisingly Taught me so much. Thank you! :)

  • blotto

    Zoo and others: What will you do to defend America? How far are you willing to go to take America back from these communist tyrants? Are you ready to spill blood?

  • CONSTITUTION_AL

    DO NOT ALLOW THE DEMONCRATS TO BE ALONE FOR ONE SECOND WITH ANY VOTER REGISTRATION LIST, VOTING MACHINE, ABSENTEE OR ELECTION BALLOTS.

    REPUBLICANS SHOULD MAKE SURE THEY HAVE AS MANY EYES AS POSSIBLE TO WITNESS AND VERIFY THAT ALL VOTE COUNTING, VOTER REGISTRATION LISTS, VOTE MACHINES, ELECTION LOCATIONS ACTIVITIES ARE SECURE AND TAMPER-PROOF WITH SEALS AND SIGNATURES.

    PEOPLE SHOULD USE THEIR VIDEO CAMERAS AND CELL PHONES TO FILM AND PHOTOGRAPH ALL THE GOINGS ON AND SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES AT THE POLLING LOCATIONS TO RECORD AND HELP PREVENT CRIMES.

    DO NOT TRUST OBAMA AND THE DEMONCRATS BECAUSE THEY ARE PROFESSIONALS IN VOTER FRAUD, VOTER MACHINE RIGGING, AND ELECTION STEALING SCHEMES. THEY HAVE A HISTORY OF COMMITTING THESE CRIMES EVERY ELECTION BUT THEY NEVER ARE PUNISHED. WE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THIS AND THEY MUST BE STOPPED.

    REMEMBER ACORN’S MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD AND HOW THE DEMONCRATS STOLE THE ELECTION FROM NORM COLEMAN

    Woe to the honest voters of America! for the devil and his demoncrats is come down unto you, having great wrath and election stealing schemes, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. Tea Party 11:2

  • Allisio rex

    Republicans and Democrats by way of treason have given away our Country and our Civilization to millions of third-world barbarians. The USA belongs to White-Europeans only. All the others with the exception of native Americans will have to be rounded up and forcibly deported to area of known or approximate origins. This is not a laughing matters. It's serious.
    Either we,White Patriots, hit the streets and demand that Congress stop all non-White immigration and deport most non-Whites,or there will be no future for Whites.
    Our demise will be long and painful,but it will happen. http://www.usapoliticaltyranny.info, http://www.vdare.com, http://www.americanaptrol.com

    We must fight back and save God's White race and the only civilization on earth.

    • Bill Clinton

      Nice try; I'm surpised you didn't mention your "membership" with the Tea Party or Oath Keepers, or how you are an "avid fan" of Fox News.

    • aspacia

      Allisio, you forgot the Heil Hitler.

    • davarino

      hehehe Thats funny rex. So how is it going over there in the democratic party? You guys are really pulling out all the stops, willing to try anything. How bout arguing the issues on their merits rather than this kind of disingenuous crap.

  • Bill Clinton

    Systematic and pervasive voter fraud is a greater threat to the United States than any terrorist organization. Think about this for a minute.

    An individuals who is guilty of voter fraud is no different than a traitor who subverts our way of life by collaborating with a foreign enemy. Both are a threat to this country, and both should be tried and executed.

  • Jim Johnson

    Don't protest become a poll watcher. Lend a hand bring a camera. Take down complaints.
    United we stand.

    If you do not do it no one else will.

  • Allisio Rex

    Voter fraud by non-Whites with the approval of our State and Federal Courts spells troubles for Whites. We must form viable third and fourth Political Parties, break this monopoly and restore White-European Domain/Dominance in this Country.
    Look around. It's all dark,ugly faces. Go in Doctor's office, Government offices, stores,airlines tickets office, look all over it's the third world replacing us. not only here in the USA but all over the White Countries: Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand.

    • davarino

      Rex, you need to go to the Nazi web site. You have no simpathy here.

  • Ret. Marine

    What I have suspected, and feared in all of my 55 years of life, is this one issue. While I agree that this a very disheartening issue I also understand that after a long train of abuses the Constitution has the remedy. We the People need to get out there in such large numbers that the fraud is basically annulled. That will do the trick. Do your duty and be an accountable citizen, not a fraud we witness every day out of the regime.

  • Allisio rex

    White traitors, renegades,and this includes White women, should receive the most painful punishment. Citizenship, voting rights and immigration into this Country were never meant for non -Whites.

    THE USA AXIS OF EVIL;

      Rex, go back to media matters and play over there. You are not welcome here.

  • USMCSniper

    Bill Oreilly says that this is just another litmus test to verify the decline of morality in America. Republicans and Democrats both realize America is lacking a strong moral compass. Millions of American parents are trying hard to teach their children good values, but are besieged by the terrible influences beyond the home. The secularists have succeeded in drastically changing the moral tone in this country. And 80 percent of us see that change as a very bad thing. However, there's no mass outcry about it. And until there is, America will continue its declining moral direction.

  • Renee Rogers-Perry

    Decline of morality is a purposeful act perpetrated on the public by those who are trying to tear down this country. It is the plan of Communism/Marxism/Leninism.They must corrupt the minds and souls of our youth. Has anyone noticed the amount of religion hating youth on the blogs today who blame religion for all the faults and injustices in our country today? Where do they get these ideas if not from our teachers in school. It all started with the wrongly interpretation of the non-existing statement that there is a separation of church as stated in our Constitution, which it is not. Thanks to organizations like the ACLU and our Leftist judges, this is the America we have come to. With this administration and all the false statements that got Obama elected, we are at the precipice and ready to fall totally into the hands of a totalitarian government. Supreme Court Judges will be chosen that will tip the balance for years to come into either a socially activist court, or a traditional one that follows the constitution! Very important!

  • Letscheck

    First step for the new Congress: All voters need to provide identification just like they have to do when they get a driver's license.

    Then repeal Obama care.

    • Allisio rex

      You will find some sob Federal Judge who will rule this unconstitutional as just recently happened, believe in Arizona.
      In other words any non-White illegal or non-citizen, will vote and this Country will keep going down with the third-world White haters-invaders taking over . http://www.usapoliticaltyranny.info http://www.vdare.com

  • Ginger

    This is why Obama is leaving the country right after the election so he can avoid being questioned about his criminals stealing our election. By 2012 he will have more fed judges in place and it will be harder to stop these thieves. Of course the outcomes of the elections will not be clear for weeks or months.Meantime the lame duck congress will be putting in place laws that will end honest elections for good.

  • http://www.mysapce.com/freddawes1776/ Fred Dawes

    I will vote but it will mean nothing the system is totally a joke. here is one total joke social security has a law that almost no one knows about say you get social security at age 65 and you make 20,000 a year you many get some of your money back but when you can no longer work at say 75 the system will take back all the money you had coming and the IRS Will come after you, we now have 100,000 and more old people living on the street and 20 million will follow, the system needs to be removed and replaced with our own system of laws. this government is a monkey foreign system.

  • bubba4

    Rich…how can you write an article about Voter Fraud without telling us how many actual cases of actual voter fraud there has been…in any time frame..or at all?

    "But, if these same voters perceive that their voices were silenced as a result of manipulation and fraud, the damage to the nation as a whole will be catastrophically polarizing."

    Yes, well, you are laying the groundwork for this polarization by telling people that even if they don't see fraud, hear fraud, experience fraud, and no cases of fraud are actually brought forth….there is a lot of it going on…secretly…especially if you lose the election. Not just is it secret it's covered up and you won't hear anything about it….but rest assured someone is cheating you somewhere. Fear monger much?

  • olustee

    "Take away that belief, and you undermine America’s faith in the democratic institutions that allow the citizenry to determine the direction of the country. Take away that faith from tens of millions of voters who demand to be heard, and America will become a much different nation indeed."

    Exactly. The way power was passed in the good old days was at the point of a sword and the barrel of a gun. The only revolutions were bloody revolutions. The integrity of the voting process is fundamental to the continued existence of a free America. The democratic party was the party of treason in the 1860s, and it is the party of treason today. If it wants to commit political suicide by winning by fraud, let that fact be declared throughout the land.

    Voter fraud is a new concept introduced since mass non-White immigration began. These non-White are not bound by any morality and will do anything to destabilize out institutions. Obviously, Blacks will use this is a weapon to reach political power at any cost and all the other non-White will follow this practice. The political wheel and deals and manipulations of pre-mass non-White immigration,when Whites were in charge of their destiny,cannot be compared to today's voter fraud yes very much approved by the anti-American, left winger self-hating White Democrats and their non-White proxies.
    This problem will not be resolved politically. Unless thousands of White patriots are willing to go to Washington,D.C. (where our devils are located ) and demand that they leave,same as it recently happened in Northern Africa,where the people removed entrenched Dictatorships, we are never going to solve the power grab of our traitorous politicians and the result downfall of our Country.

  • American_Flag

    Yet the silence of our elected representatives is deafening. Why?

    GOOD POINT JIM! BUT HOW ABOUT THE SILENCE OF THE PEOPLE? WHERE IS THE PUBLIC OUTRAGE? THIS SHOULD BE FAR GREATER THAN THE SALE OF THE U.S. PORT SECURITY TO THE U.A.E. – DO YOU KNOW WHY? THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE…WE ARE BEING SUPRESSED BY OUR OWN GOV'T WHO IS CONTROLLING THE MASS MEDIA. WE ARE SCREAMING, BUT IT IS NOT BEING REPORTED. OUR RALLY CRY IS BEING MUFFLED IF NOT EXTINGUISHED.

    WHAT BUNK. THIS COUNTRY IS GOING TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET.
