The 1948 Texas Senate Race had all the fraud of Tuesday's election plus a high noon showdown in a dusty Texas town.

Would the modern age had the brass of yesteryear.

Robert Caro is now on my reading list.

Best regards to all,

I highly suggest “A Texan looks at Lyndon: A Study in Illegitimate Power” by J. Evetts Haley if anyone wants to know about the 1948 Texas Senate voter fraud. Check Amazon used books.

John Connolly who was a protégée of Lyndon’s has written in his biography that they stole the election.

This is why EVERYBODY, with the exception of those out of the country, who desires to vote needs to be told that they have to go to the polls ON ELECTION DAY and vote. If they can’t live with that, they really don’t give a **** anyway and don’t need to vote. This will also cut down on “the young” voting in their home state as well in the state where they are attending college. These “bags of ballots” are all fraudulant and are just a means for commie ‘RATS to steal elections. Hell, in my town, you can drop all the ballots you want off at a ballot box out on the sidewalk under the cover of darkness. It’s time to get our elections out of the banana republic mode. If you want to vote, go to the polls on election day and vote. If you can’t live with that, tough! NO MORE “FOUND” BAGS OF BALLOTS!!!!!

In Florida 2000 many people forget Bush was tens of thousands of ballots ahead. They did a recount. A friend of mine who is connected politically that night told me the Dems have boxes and bags of hidden ballots all over FL, and they will pull them out.

I (being a neophyte) told her I didn’t see how they could make up that many votes. She told me watch, by morning they would probably have “found” enough votes to swing the election, or at least close. I couldn’t believe it, but the Dems brought it up to a few hundred difference.

Well, they didn’t have quite enough so they started counting behind closed doors in a Dem county down here with just some Dem supervisors - and that was the famed Republican “riot”, which anyone with half a mind not blinded by bias could see stopped complete fraud (of course, that didn’t include the MSM).

Bush actually won down here by thousands of votes, I am sure. And not counting the guy I saw on TV who said, “I punched the second hole (Pat Buchanan, instead of Gore), just like they told me to.”

This describes the Coleman-Franken debacle here in MN.

I love the Caro books!! As to Johnson’s cheating, he discovered that one has to wait until all the ballots have been counted. That way you know how many “found” ballots are needed to win. He had come up short before by failing to do this. One other interesting thing is LBJ’s relationship With Brown and Root.(B and R became KBR and ultimately yeilded the evil Halliburton)
