There are a couple of books out discussing voter fraud and election irregularities. I highly recommend you read one or both.
If It’s Not Close They Can’t Cheat by Hugh Hewitt
Hat tip to Matt at Blogs For Bush who says, “While Democrats tend to approach elections with the goal of increasing voter turnout (even if it means illegal votes) while Republicans are inclined to make sure the voting process follows the letter of the law. The latter process often being smeared by Democrats as “disenfranchisement.”
As we saw in the 1960 election, fraud can change the outcome. A few key precincts in a few key states can turn the entire national election on its head. We saw again in 2000 what fraud can do. After working in conjunction with MSM, where a state was improperly called for the losing candidate even before polls closed in the state, the Democrats unleashed a fury of lawyers into a few Democrat-leaning precints to manipulate the results through chad-eating, recounting and lawsuits. Keep in mind the outcome of SEVEN recounts by various organizations, including some media. George W. Bush still won.
We’re seeing the groundwork being laid by the Democrats once again.
1. Talk of wholesale suppression of black vote (though the election hasn’t even happened yet) despite no evidence having ever been presented. The facts argued by proponents of this ridiculous notion is based on the purging of felons from voter rolls prior to an election, to insure those convicted of felonies (who aren’t allowed to vote) since the last election are removed from being able to vote. The Democrats argue this targets minorities, but they fail to recognize the statistics on who commits crimes and the simple fact that no matter what color a felon is, they’re not allowed to vote.
2. Talk of electronic voting machine failures. Although these same Democrats argued in 2000 that the antiquated balloting procedures allowed for corrupt counting of ballots, they’re now convinced that the high-tech voting they wanted then just isn’t a safe procedure now. It’s a great foundation, because if they lose, they have something else to blame this time. Yawn.
3. The Kerry-Edwards campaign is asking the Federal Election Commission for guidance on how it could raise money to cover any recount costs, including whether it could use a legal compliance fund it is tapping to pay campaign lawyers and finance other legal and accounting costs.
But while Democrats are trying to plant the seed in the American mind that the vote is tainted thus giving them validation for challenging any negative election results, the facts tell a very different story of just who’s trying to steal elections.
Ask yourself why Democrats enthusiastically support efforts to let convicted felons vote. Thus far only four states-New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, and Massachusetts-grant prison inmates this privilege. In 1988, Michael Dukakis’s campaign had a massive voter turnout effort in Massachusetts’ prisons.
Ask yourself why Democrats rushed to enact the “Motor Voter” law, which set out to register those in welfare and other government offices where people come for government money. Although short of its goal, by one estimate, “Motor Voter” has added more than seven million people from the welfare rolls to the voter rolls.
Ask yourself why, prior to the 1996 election, (subpoenaed e-mails show) Vice President Gore’s office ran a major effort to register a million new American citizens during the months prior to election day. A congressional investigation afterward discovered that tens of thousands or more of these new citizens were sped through without meeting basic requirements and without background checks to determine if any were dangerous criminals in their nations of origin (many, it turned out, were).
Ask yourself why the Democrats pride themselves on being the party of “choice”, but have rallied around a national campaign to keep a third party candidate off the ballots.
Ask yourself why Democrats were outraged when a Democrat switched parties BEFORE an election but were overjoyed when Jim Jeffords disenfranchised voters, who had put him in office as a Republican, by switching parties and changing the balance of power in the entire Senate AFTER the election had occured.
Ask yourself why Democrats, faced with a candidate forced to drop out due to illegal activities and past the deadline to get replacement on the ballot, file a lawsuit to ignore the existing law in favor of them.
Ask yourself why Democrats pushed so hard for CFR so they could have foreign billionaries fund their campaigns and mud-slinging. If only CFR had been in place in the 1990s, the Clintons wouldn’t have had such a hard time re-routing so much money from the Chinese and Phillipines to their campaigns.
Ask yourself why Democrats filed suit in Missouri state court to ignore rules about poll closing times, allowing untold numbers of illegal votes to be cast. (To say nothing of the Democrat phone banking effort that commenced immediately after the court ordered the voting locations to remain open, in an apparent pre-planned, concerted effort)
Ask yourself why Democrats in 2000 filed a lawsuit in state court to have 25,000 absentee (mostly Republican) ballots thrown out and not counted.
Ask yourself why Democrats in 2000 filed a lawsuit after losing the election, to have the rules on counting ballots changed, in their favor.
Ask yourself why Democrats in California want to reduce the voting age to 14.
So ask yourself who’s really stealing democracy when you read about the party who falsely claims wholesale disenfranchisement for minorities, concern about voting machine failure (after demanding their existence) and requests federal money to hire lawyers to contest elections before they occur is the same party that wants to make it easier for children, convicted felons and illegal aliens to vote, while fighting like hell to throw out the ballots of our brave military and rushing to break the law to replace criminal candidates on the ballots, keep polls open for their telemarketers and switching political parties after voters have cast ballots and have no recourse.
