When Barack Obama won the 2012 election after such a disastrous first term of non-leadership, including rewarding Wall Street criminals while failing to restore the American economy, destroying American health care and ignoring the BP oil spill, I wondered whether he and his allies somehow stole the election from Mitt Romney, a political moderate and stand-up citizen of the USA with a sterling track record of leadership success.
I still wonder about it, and this week a flurry of articles has only made me more concerned about the lengths Democrats will go to defy the will of the people.
Here are three recent pieces of news that reveal how Democrats steal elections.
First, we have non-citizens being allowed to vote, and research showing that such people vote for Democrat candidates in overwhelming numbers.
How many non-citizens participate in U.S. elections? More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote. Furthermore, some of these non-citizens voted.
Non-citizens tended to favor Democrats [Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample], we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections.
In Minnesota, the 2008 Senate race between Al Franken and Norm Coleman was decided by 312 votes. <Daily Caller, link>
And to add insult to injury, we have a Justice Department that actively fights states that seek to outlaw voter fraud and require that voters show basic identification.
Next, we have electronic voting machines that switch your vote from Republican to Democrat.
There have been stories of voting machines switching votes in Illinois and Maryland, but they’ve been anecdotal and blamed on voter error or calibration issues.
Now comes video of it actually happening.
A man in Moline, Ill., used his phone to document how his vote for a Republican registered as a vote for the Democrat. The man wanted to vote for Neil Anderson for Illinois State Senate, but when he touched Anderson’s name (as seen clearly in the video), the vote registered for Mike Jacobs, the Democrat.
It wasn’t a one-time “error,” the same thing happened when he tried to vote for Republican Rep. Bobby Schilling. When he touched Schilling’s name, the vote registered for his Democratic challenger Cheri Bustos. <Daily Caller, link>
Here is the actual video of this chicanery:
Finally, we have Democrats in Colorado posing as Republican election judges:
The Colorado secretary of state is investigating allegations that some Boulder County Republican election judges are actually Democrats in disguise.
Deputy Secretary of State Suzanne Staiert began investigating and confirmed to the Daily Camera that she found “some troubling inconsistencies with some election judges.”
“One of them was a Democrat who had changed party affiliation on Oct. 10, so we are concerned that Boulder didn’t follow the list, then resorted to advertising for these positions,” she told the paper. <Daily Caller, link>
These three articles paint quite a picture, don’t they?
Democrats behind these fraudulent actions might imagine that the ends justify the means, but take one look at the effect of Democratic policy in action in this country, and everywhere in the world it is tried, and you can only conclude that the “ends” are exceptionally lousy and justify precisely nothing.
