« Rasmussen: McCain Now Has Edge On Economy? | Main | Thoughts About the Early Voting »

Things That Just Don't Seem To Matter

I have often expressed my disdain for polls. It's nothing against that field (of which my colleague DJ is a hell of an expert), but part of my personality: I simply don't like "fitting in." When I hear someone argue a position based on popular opinion, surveys, polls, or the like, I instinctively dig in even further. I choose to decide for myself what I think is important, to trust my own judgment on what is right and wrong. The classic "Bloom County" bit of wisdom regarding the penguins watching the jet seemed to sum up my beliefs quite well: "If 10,000 people all do a silly thing, it is still a silly thing."

With that in mind, I find myself looking at all the revelations regarding ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now!), and wondering not why I think it's important, but why more people don't.

Fact: ACORN claimed that it signed up over 1.3 million new voters this election cycle.

Fact: They have since "revised" that number down to barely a third of that.

Fact: At most recent count, the total number of fraudulent registrations submitted has broken 400,000.

Fact: There are criminal investigations for voter registration fraud against ACORN currently under way in 14 states.

Fact: Barack Obama initially said he has never had any ties to ACORN.

Fact: Barack Obama was the attorney of record for ACORN in a lawsuit in the 1990s pushing Illinois to comply with the "motor voter" law.

Fact: Barack Obama served as a trainer (apparently unpaid, as he claims he never "worked" for them) for ACORN in the 1990s.

Fact: ACORN is legally and officially a non-partisan, non-profit organization.

Fact: ACORN's "political wing" was given over $800,000 by the Obama campaign for its assistance in campaign events.

Fact: The Obama campaign shared its list of donors who had given them the legal maximum with ACORN.

Fact: ACORN's "political wing" has officially endorsed Obama.

Fact: The board of directors of ACORN's "political wing" is the exact same people who sit on the board of ACORN.

Fact: Local officials across the nation have been flooded with new voter registrations collected by ACORN.

Fact: In many of these cases, a huge percentage of those are fraudulent.

Fact:: In one county in Indiana, election officials stopped verifying the 5,000 registrations submitted by ACORN after they had yet to find one -- but had rejected over 2,100.

Fact: ACORN has absolutely no systems in place to ensure accuracy and honesty among its paid employees to prevent them from faking registration forms.

Fact: ACORN imposes quotas on its employees for voter registrations.

Fact: Some people have speculated that this is part of a strategy to overwhelm the electoral process with so many registrations that the system will simply break down and not impose any checks on the registratioon system.

OK, that last one's a bit flimsy as a "fact," but it offers an explanation for the ACORN model.)

Fact: The idea of deliberately bypassing standard security measures to maximize results -- even if it turns out that a large number of them are fraudulent -- is apparently shared by the Obama campaign, which has chosen to deliberately shut down the standard practices for preventing credit card fraud.

To me, these are matters that are of critical import. To me, these facts are the kinds of things that make me call for ACORN to be abolished, its directors locked up, its offices razed, and the sites sown with salt.

But apparently I'm the oddball here, because this incredible criminal conspiracy known as ACORN is getting a bye in the mainstream media and the general public.

I don't mind being on the "outs." I understand that my sense of outrage is different from a lot of other people's. But every now and then I find myself wondering not why I find something so obscene, but why others don't.

This is another of those scenarios where, when I find myself angry, I try to imagine if the shoe were on the other foot and whether it still angers me. If ACORN were predominately a Republican group doing all these things, I'd be just as angry. I don't want my candidate to win "by hook or crook".

An admirable quality shared by most conservatives. Unfortunately, the conservative propensity to pay by the rules is also a weakness when up against opponents who see rules as something to be broken, or for the other guy, not them.

Liberals try to keep voting laws as lax and unenforced as possible. With early voting now the law in most states, these lax laws really come into play as it gives people lots of time to vote multiple times. Even if they are caught, nothing happens, particularly if it's a minority. Prosecutors know that the professional racists will be all over the media making false allegations of voter suppression and disenfranchisement.

To keep liberals from stealing more and more elections republicans are going to have to form and fund their own "Acorn" type of organization. The goal is not to actually steal elections, but to have the appearance of doing so. If successful, liberals will be calling for tighter voting laws and voter identification cards.

Every illegal vote disenfranchises a legal voter who casts an opposing ballot. Conservatives can whine about it, or they can appear to be playing the game even better in order to foster change.

Larry:


Beginning in 1994 through 2006, the Democratic Party lost control of Congress. Whether or not the Republicans did something positive with their control isn't important for the purposes of something else that needs mention:

Patronage.

Simply put, the Democratic Party lost a good deal of the Patronage they had control of for many, many decades. And they didn't like it.

With patronage, they lost power. Their minions, the regulars who staffed their campaigns, hauled their water and otherwise were the muscle and veins of the process, often had to take jobs at foundations, lobby firms and an number of other places that were not as convenient as running various government departments where patronage gets the job.

While most of government is staffed by civil servants, you would be amazed at the number of jobs that are political appointments.

The President also has control of a lot of political jobs and we all know what happened in 2000 and 2004. The birthright that Democrats thought they had became a long desert of much lower appointments to the juicy stuff and THAT as much as anything, has driven their win at all cost campaign to get back control of all phases of government.

The grunt jobs of power have to be done by someone, often trainees. Look at Chris Matthews, the thrill up the leg guy. He used to work for Tip O'Neil when O'Neil was Speaker of the House. As a young guy, he had a grunt job. But look at how he helps them now.

"Beginning in 1994 through 2006, the Democratic Party lost control of Congress. Whether or not the Republicans did something positive with their control isn't important for the purposes of something else that needs mention:"

In that regard, this bears mentioning too:

When Republicans lost that majority in '06, many conservatives plainly knew, and said aloud, that they deserved it. They lost the faith of the electorate because they strayed from the conservative message and became corrupt.

With the current approval rating of a majority Democrat Congress being at an all time low, the liberals take an entirely different view. They don't think they deserve to lose their majority. In fact, they think it's just a matter of electing more Democrats to make things better.

Many mornings I watch roughly 1 minute of FoxNews' morning show - while I put on my shoes before heading off to work. Yet twice in the past few days my 1 minute has involved watching clearly-fired-up, non-profit, government-funded ACORN officials endorsing Obama and exhorting people to vote for him.

Needless to say I've not seen those videos anywhere else.

Lurching into a tangent: Why is a major Republican name - Guiliani, Steele, Romney - or better yet Joe Lieberman, not camped out in front of the LAT offices with a crowd of Republican supporters demanding the release of the Obama/PLO tape (preferably with Newt there to handle press interviews)? I mean something BIG - I mean every active Republican in the area there with a friend and a sign. I mean every elected Republican in the time zone asking their supporters to go join this protest. I mean something so huge that it HAS to be on the TV during every newscast, headlining the papers all weekend. Why, exactly, is that not happening?

Wizbangblue stifles debate. Nobody is allowed to post for long who does not agree with Lee Ward.

This is the mindset of Liberals. And we are going to see more and more of that in the future even if McCain wins.

Why Kevin allows this is a mystery. I don't understand. Because of it, I will probably go away after the election.

For a real view of the mindset of Liberals, I have extracted a blurb from this page that tags something the Lee or one of his fellow travelers has posted:

It's too early to flush the crapper on McCain's chances in Ohio, but the water level is rising and poor old John McCain is sinking further behind. Stand by with the plunger, Joe/Sam - what floats to the top ain't gonna be pretty.

Nasty minded, closed minded and proud of it.

OLDPUPPYMAX:

On the contrary, I think these sorts of things matter a great deal, to a great many people. But the point is...how would anyone know the mood of the public if the MSM will not report on it? I'm livid, but what exactly do I do now...kick my TV? Send an e-mail to FOX? I've done that 100 times or more, counting on the famously "conservative", "fair and balanced" network to demand Obama release his college records, his medical records, even his damned birth cert. Has any of this become part of the FOX broadcast day? I don't mean on Hannity and Colmes. But as a lead story, every 1/2 hour! A ten million man march is about the only thing which will generate any talk. Only that would reveal the true anger and disgust of the American public. Hell, I'll join in ...and provide a car! But who does the organizing? Anyhow, the fact that people aren't running up and down the streets with rifles doesn't mean the American public isn't absolutely irate...with the criminally corrupt MSM, with a lying Manchurian Candidate, with the patent abuse of its rights and with the fact that Washington DC has become so corrupt that a 2nd American revolution may well be necessary to restore our rights and freedom.

Lorie:

No, what is classic is the lack of outrage from people who were upset at Republicans for a confusing butterfly ballot that was created and distributed by Democrat election officials. Plenty of outrage at the wrong party over that, but none for funding a group that repeatedly sends people out to collect bogus voter registration forms.

How stupid is it to make the distinction between vote fraud and voter registration fraud? At the VERY least, all these bogus registration forms are overwhelming the poor workers in the board of elections offices and making it harder for them to do their jobs to ensure a fair election. That pisses me off. It is a waste of taxpayer money paid to have thousands of bogus forms reviewed and call me crazy, but I am not convinced every single bad registration form will be caught -- especially when so many were dumped so close to the election. There are simply not enough personnel or hours in a day to do a perfect job reviewing them and verifying them.

Then you have people like Brunner in Ohio who is not even interested in doing what is needed to put in place the tools to verify them.

There have been some bad votes caught in some states in the early voting process. I doubt we will never know the full extent of it, but I have a feeling Obama will get his $800,000 worth and then some.

Somehow it escapes you that if you can register with different identities you can vote multiple times. Thanks to liberals, there's minimal safeguards to prevent such fraud. That's ok, conservatives just need to play the game even better than liberals. When you show up at the polls and find that you've already voted then you'll be whining for safeguards.

Obviously you haven't lived long enough for it to sink in. Voter fraud is real. It happens on both sides, but Democrats have been better at it for generations for some odd reason. Well, except when it didn't work out.

There is whole alphabet soup of elected people who got there through voter fraud, including such as LBJ, JFK, and maybe Bush thanks to the fumbled attempt at voter fraud by the Dems in Florida. Try the Daley machine in Chicago, Tammany Hall in NYC and the Perdergast bunch in Kansas City. Voter fraud has been with us for generations, way before voter registration fraud, which is now all the rage.

Felons, dead people, nursing home demented, illegal aliens, street people; how can you ignore the obvious facts? Oh, I forgot, you are a Liberal, which means winning by any means, and fraud is ok if your side does it.

Well, parting with the advice to "not feed the trolls", I can assure you, there is nothing fake about the outrage I feel over this.

Your faulty argument is the same as saying "here is a list of criminal activity, but this crime is not the same thing as the actual crime, so you should absolutely ignore the list."

If that makes your "classic" list, I suspect you are quite limited in your experiences.

ACORN, Voter Fraud, Illegal Contributions, and the Coming Liberal Nanny State

"What we are beginning to learn is that it is little more than a massive exercise in voter fraud and mischief of all kinds. Dead Indians and illegal aliens have long been a significant Democratic voting base in certain parts of the country but now that concept of electoral fraud has spread throughout the nation.
ACORN has long suckled at the public teat. It has rewarded such trust and expenditures of the public treasury by managing to subject itself to scrutiny or investigation in no less than eleven different states by submitting thousands of fraudulent new voter registrations. The usual dead suspects are now being supplemented by small children and even the names of sport celebrities."

One good idea for the country is to have a highly trained, well educated, professional class of people elected by everyone, whose only job it would be to watch over all of the things that effect each of us.

How about the country's infrastructure, like bridges, dams, highways, and an interest in electrical power generation and the electric grids that distribute the power to all. This to name a few things of general interest.

How about this same class of people writing laws that are neutral in terms of the effect on persons.

But wait, there is such a group already, it is called Congress. And every two years, we have the opportunity to replace all of one body and a third of the other.

I say get a new bunch in office; fire them all, Republicans and Democrats both. I believe we deserve better than what we have seen from our professional political class over the past 30 years from BOTH parties.

It usually takes a generation of so for all of the details to eventually ooze out under the door on voter fraud. This reasons for this are obvious. The truth will out, but not for some time passing.

When the vote is close, is when you get fraud.

For example, Lyndon Baines Johnson was elected to the Senate for the first time because 248 votes were sent in from Starr County three days after the election was over. You can look it up. Oddly enough,the voters for that block of votes lined up in alphabetical order. ROFLMAO

Here is another possible fraud situation. We will not know for sure for a few decades I would guess;

In at least one Democratically controlled county in Florida, one or more poll workers realized just how close the election was and that Who got Florida would win. So they decided to take some blank ballots and punch them for Gore.

How do we know this? Easy; it seems that the only way you can reproduce a "Hanging Chad," is to take a stack and try to punch through them. The ones near the bottom develop the famous "Hanging Chad."

How "human error" can explain not counting 31 votes in succession for one single candidate is beyond the pale and Ron Paul's campaign should ask for a recount across New Hampshire immediately.

- As soon as people went public with the fact that their votes in Sutton had not been counted, other districts where Paul had supposedly received zero votes, such as Greenville, suddenly changed their final tallies and attributed votes to the Congressman."
