As David Horowitz explains in Obama’s Rules for Revolution: The Alinsky Model, ACORN’s class warriors have

contempt for the election process because they don’t believe in the electoral system as it is constituted in a capitalist democracy. To them, elections are already a fraud—an instrument of the rich, or as [Saul] Alinsky prefers to call them, the Haves. If the electoral system doesn’t serve “the people,” but is only an instrument of the Haves, then election fraud is justified as the path to a future that will serve the Have-Nots.

It should, therefore, come as no surprise that ACORN doesn’t care if the voters it registers are actual people or cartoon characters. “There’s no quality control on purpose, no checks and balances,” said Nate Toler, who worked on an ACORN voter effort in Missouri. “The internal motto is ‘We don’t care if it’s a lie, just so long as it stirs up the conversation.’”

As a matter of policy ACORN never conducted criminal background checks on its voter registration canvassers.

In fact ACORN considered a criminal background to be an asset. In Nevada the group gave voter registration jobs to 59 inmates from a work-release program. Several of the felons who had been convicted of identity theft were made supervisors. “That led some local wags to joke that at least ACORN was hiring specialists to do their work,” the Wall Street Journal’s John Fund wrote.

ACORN cared so little about the integrity of the electoral system that in 2010 its voter mobilization division, Project Vote, put Amy Adele Busefink in charge of its national get-out-the-vote operation. Busefink, who entered a no-contest plea earlier this year for her involvement in “Blackjack,” was under indictment in Nevada while running the 2010 voter drive. She also ran ACORN’s fraud-ridden 2008 voter registration drive in which 400,000 bogus registrations were thrown out.

Although ACORN, the shell corporation that ran the ACORN network, is out of business, its newly renamed state chapters and Project Vote remain in business.

This means that as Election Day 2012 draws nearer, dead Democratic voters will rise from their resting places to reelect President Obama.

    We all remember the rank hypocrisy of ACORN as they insisted on the one hand that they were merely a 'get out the vote' organization with no particular agenda…and then, rationalizing their total absence in the state of Massachusetts, explained it "wasn't a swing state."

    ACORN is gone, but like radical groups momentarily outlawed in Pakistan, they'll just reconstitute under another name. Their goal is electoral victory, their methods are varied and cover the gamut…from legal to semi-legal to outright fraud. And they're just one piece of the Democratic Party machinery.

      "Reconstitute under another name." One is called "The Southwest Voter Registration Project" and I believe a person in this group registered my 12 year old son in time of the 2008 election. He received five calls, which I pretended I was him, and which I recorded and were from the Democrat Party asking if he needed a ride or knew where the voting poll station was. I told the third worker what had happened but I still got two more calls.

      In September of 2010, I told a Secretary of State employee that had a booth at our New Mexico State Fair. He took my info but then my son, or I, got four calls including one an hour before the polls closed.

    We have to be vigilant against such groups. We as Americans need to tag a neon sign on them and let everyone know who they are and what they do.

    And Obama was a part of this group and nobody in the media says anything. Well I guess they reported it once and let it go. It should be headline news everyday for a week, over and over again, the same way they do when a republican mis spells a word.

  • patriotwork

    When Obama gets the American voter's boot in his rear, he can always find a job with ACORN or SEIU or some other Marxist front group.

  • susan

    ACORN canvasses door to door; they are easy to spot as they act friendly but are merely scoping people out as to who is one of the majority, the people who comprise all the non-white race(s). Do not answer your door to these huge, dark men. The muslims operate within wholesome communities and also in the countryside where most would not expect to see these monsters who lie about their intentions. They operate several freezers inside their homes and garages and basements, thus providing cooked food and other goods to their underground systems financed by sheiks. We found 12 sheiks in our own formerly very find neighborhood. Check the local tax rolls.

  • Jim_C

    susan–I will be on the lookout for these "huge dark men" of ACORN. But how can I tell these people of whom I should be terrified from the Muslims from whom I should be terrified? There's just so many scary, dark people out there!!!!

  • Steeloak

    Susan you are either:
    1. A leftist troll, sent here to plant phony "Racist" rants so that your leftist friends can scream about "Racist" websites like FPM,
    or
    2. Insane

    It is amazing that this conviction could go through without interference from the WH or the attorney general.

  • Brujo Blanco

    I find it curious that the President worked for ACORN but had no knowledge of illegal activity. It is also ciurious that most voter fraud is to the advantage of democrats. In my nephew’s senior year in high school he took citizenship course. One requirement for this corse was to register to vote. He wanted to register as a a Republican but was required by the instructor to register as a democrat. It proved to be difficult to change his political party.

    The fact that the sitting President of the United States has ties to a criminal organization would, under normal circumstances, be news. But not if the President is a liberal Democrat. The Democrat Propaganda Department (DPD), also known as the press/mainstream media, is not interested in such news.

    Memo to GOP presidential candidates: Mention ACORN whenever you get the chance. And don't let the other guy change the subject. Make him defend what he has defended in the past.

  • Fred Dawes

    This nation is being ruled by illegal activity for years now and someone from ACORN Will be President within 20 years or long before.

    • welldoneson

      "someone from ACORN" is President NOW.

      • Fred Dawes

        You are right, i forgot a monkey is in the white??? house.

  • Paolo

    "Governor Beverly Perdue of North Carolina, recently vetoed the Republican legislature's voter ID reform law. Her specious reason for killing legislation that is critical to stopping voter fraud was that it would discourage poor people from voting and was, therefore, discriminatory. According to Perdue and other "liberals" it is very difficult for poor people to get proper identification. For some reason the many levels of our governments that regularly qualify poor people for multiple welfare benefits are incapable of providing them with a picture ID card comparable to that which every driver must get from DMV to operate an automobile.

    • Fred Dawes

      That is what mexico is all about and the third world rulers always send the third worlds people here to make it just like the third world, America pool can vote get a ID From any DMV,,So what are you saying its not mexico yet????

  • myomy

    How serious a crime is it to try to subvert our democratic election process and try to install a person illegally to the Presidency of America? HOW SERIOUS AN OFFENSE IS THAT TO YOU….. To me it's TREASON AND SHOULD CARRY THE DEATH PENALTY.

    Dig up Alinsky's body and bury it with bin Laden's.

    ACORN is a bitter seed. Who knows what fatal fruit it will bare?

    Didn't the Great man Obamed work with and for ACORN? Tell me again why this org is being funded by tax dollars? Post 2012 when the GOP will control all 3 of the chambers of government, this org MUST be shut down. GOP grass roots activists will have to insist on it.

    shreaders are cheap, if it doesn’t work anymore cut off the plug and put it into the garbage. I understand your concern but I don’t know that there are reusable parts and it costs more to repair it than it’s worth plus I don’t think people would take on that job of fixing it because labor is so high. The trash dump will smash it to a small item and any metal parts might be salvaged by the county.
