More Voter Fraud Discovered in DuPage County!

OMG! Who would have thought! Registering voters is fraud! Especially with an intent to deceive!

In late June, Downers Grove, IL had their Heritage Fest Days! Lots of food, games, rides, and booths! Including informational booths, designed to help out the good citizens of Downers Grove! Besides businesses with $5.00 off coupons, and $5.00 lemonade made with real lemons, there were political booths! The Democrats were there, the Libertarians, and, across from the Libertarians, were the ever helpful Republicans decked out with all their flags and signs!

#%&* the Republican Party

I meant to go to sleep 2+ hours ago, I really did. But failing that, I thought I’d check the latest news on the tubes, and boy was that ever a mistake. I read about 6th the Circuit court decision to challenge 600k+ new registrations, and now I am WIDE FREAKIN’ AWAKE pissed off. Feel free to follow along on a near 2 am ramble and rant….

F%&* the GOP

Oh, every two years, predictably, they go on and on about the sanctity of the right to vote, and how evil Democratic allied groups are perpetrating voter fraud on an unsuspecting populace by registering all sorts of (OMIGOSH) people to vote, conveniently glossing over the fact that most of the people thus registered are poor, or minority, in their rush to judgment over the relatively few suspect registrations. Every two years, predictably, there’s an outcry over a group called ACORN, which inevitably pays some less than scrupulous persons to gather new voter registrations, and said persons get lazy, or bored, or just stupid, and sign up Mickey Mouse to cast a ballot.

Country first? It’s party, party, party above all in Wisconsin

West Pointers talk about Duty, Honor, Country.

John McCain's slogan is "Country First," whatever that means.

And Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen's motto is "Party, Party, Party."

As in political party, not wild in the streets.

Van Hollen, putting on his vigilant attorney general hat, filed a lawsuit against his own state's Government Accountability Board — the board created to take partisanship out of elections — in a move that could disenfranchise — or at least seriously hassle — one million Wisconsin voters.

Van Hollen acted after complaints from the state Republican Party that the accountability board wasn't making it hard enough for people to vote. More of the same attempts to frighten people by yelling "fraud" while perpetrating the fraud themselves by denying people what we call the RIGHT to vote. (When we say that, we don't mean right wing.)

The GOP wanted to require every person whose information on the voter rolls doesn't exactly match their driver's license to have to prove themselves at the polls.

The board wasn't impressed by the GOP arguments, perhaps because the six member board — all retired judges — found that four of its members had info that didn't match when voter files and motor vehicle records were compared.

But then it was JB to the rescue, wearing his AG hat.

Van Hollen, by the way, is the top Republican elected official in the state and the co-chair of John McCain's Wisconsin campaign. But he wasn't wearing his McCain hat, Van Hollen says. It was his good government hat. Honest.

Agree? Great. Wanna buy a bridge to nowhere?  

The ONLY reason you would oppose a recount

Any time anybody gives me a marching order, without any reasons why, my first instinct is to ask “why?”

When that person responds “Because I said so,” it tends to rub me the wrong way to say the least.

That approach doesn’t even work with my five year old, and it sure as heck doesn’t work with anybody but authority-lovers like Fundie Christians.

Yet that’s what we’re supposed to swallow from the likes of Kos and his little bully “enforcer” DHinMI over at Dailykos.

“Oppose a recount in New Hampshire BECAUSEE WE SAID SO” is what they’re saying over there.  Do they really think that’s gonna work?

And the reason it’s really suspect:  Why would you oppose something that would ultimately PROVE THAT YOU ARE RIGHT?
