But Voter Fraud Is A Myth....!

In Cook County, Illinois, last week early voters complained that when they cast their vote on touch screen voting machines, their Republican vote changed to the Democrat candidate. This happened over and over, according to voters who talked to reporters.

This week the same complaint came from voters in Maryland. Again they said that when they chose the Republican candidate their vote automatically went to the Democrat.

“When I first selected my candidate on the electronic machine, it would not put the ‘x’ on the candidate I chose — a Republican — but it would put the ‘x’ on the Democrat candidate above it,” one voter said. “This happened multiple times with multiple selections. Every time my choice flipped from Republican to Democrat. Sometimes it required four or five tries to get the ‘x’ to stay on my real selection.”

Even Queen Anne County Sheriff, Gary Hofmann, said he encountered the problem, personally.

“This is happening here as well. It occurred on two candidates on my machine. I am glad I checked. Many voters have reported this here as well,” Hoffmann said.

Many states are passing election laws that require all voters to have valid identification. The laws are being challenged by Democrats nationwide who say that voter ID laws "disenfranchise poor and minority voters." Of course, these people don't seem to have a problem producing identification to receive government "entitlements" and subsidies. The argument is simply a way to make it easier for non-citizens to vote. And they vote Democrat.

It seems they've found a way to go around voter ID laws by rigging the machines to change votes to the Democrat candidates. They blame it on "calibration errors" but experts say it has to be written into the software. The thing is - why does it only register Democrat votes (in two different states) and how many votes would they have to change to ensure a Democrat victory? What if one in five votes that were cast on a straight Republican ticket automatically went to the Democrats instead?

Yep - voter fraud is a myth. Just ask any Democrat.

In other news, a recent poll in the United States shows that at least 68% of Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction. That's no real surprise given the mis-handlings of so many different things by the Obama administration and the numerous lies told by the President himself. No, the real surprise is the next bit of information. That same poll concludes that 39% of Americans believe the Democrats are the right ones to fix the problems and only 37% think the Republicans are the answer!

So lets see...  President Obama is in his fifth year as President. The economy still sucks (as the poll also indicates), he has been caught in lie after lie ("You can keep your doctor and your insurance plan,"), his handling of world affairs has been amateurish at best, and now it seems his State Department is readying a plan to bring non-citizens with the Ebola virus into the United States for treatment. And he has nearly doubled the national debt, even after condemning Bush for raising it by $4 trillion. Is the man capable of doing anything right?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is one of the most useless, partisan majority leaders in history. If he doesn't like a particular bill sent over from the Republican led House he simply ignores it. The House has passed over 350 bills that have gone to the Senate - where Reid quietly lets them die without bringing them to the floor. And he calls Republicans "obstructionists"...???

Reid's frequent rants on the Senate floor about the "evil Koch brothers" lead one to believe that he's getting a bit senile...  or smoking something illegal.

On the other side of the Capitol is the House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi. The woman is so odd and says so many ridiculous things it's unfathomable to me that anyone wants her back in the Speaker's position. But some do.

I can't understand why anyone believes the Democrats are still the answer. Perhaps it's because while Republicans/conservatives are great at pointing out where the Democrats are going wrong, they're not too good at articulating their own views, what they would do differently and how they would fix things. Sadly, their lack of of a true conservative spokesperson is hurting them. Americans may vote Republican next week to send a message to the Democrats. But if you remember 2010 and the aftermath, the Republican surge didn't carry through to the 2012 election. And if history repeats itself between now and 2016 our great nation is lost.
