Skip to comments.The GOP Signed An Agreement With the DNC To NEVER Stop Vote Fraud (No Joke)
Posted on 11/12/2012 6:45:02 PM PST by rightjb
My good friend Alan Vera of True the Vote told me long ago that we have a two party system. The Corrupt Party and the Stupid Party. To that fact, during the weekly True the Vote webcast, Catherine Engelbrecht related a meeting she had with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, asking what the GOP would do about voter integrity. The answer?
Nothing. They aren’t legally able to. (I’m not joking.)

My understanding of that answer is that elections are a state responsibility. Each state has the responsibility to ensure elections within that state are conducted in a fair and free fashion.
If a state chooses to do that or not do that, there isn’t anything that they can do about that. This is an issue of the states and where the fight needs to be taken to.
Republicans need to go, state by state, and ensure voter ID is in place and make sure each state has legislation in place to ensure fair elections, including voting mechanisms that cannot be hijacked.
good point, and the GOP has the governors an the state legislatures now to do it.
when creditials for ANY office are not collected or required to be shown... do you think integrity of the election matters?
if you want to do something... pick any division of elections in any state... call up and ask for the collected creditials/qualifications for some federal seat on the ballot (senate, house, or POTUS). ALL candidates are Constitutionally REQUIRED to be US citizens in order to hold the office. Did the state elections office collect the documentation? no? then they violated the law
the only way to make it pass Constitutional muster — the various states must first pass iron-clad laws requiring all citizens to possess on their person a state issue ID.
I do not believe that to be the case actually. Many states have it now, without such a requirement.
I’ve wondered where the True the Vote folks have been, since the election. Why so silent? Seems that they’ve resigned that the election was *won* with insurmountable odds. Too sad.
My thought was to shut down any possible descrimination suits under the 14th Amendment and the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
I don’t want to give the courts an avenue to overturn.
The Voting Rights Act gives the federal government oversight of the electoral process in the southern states.
Of which the Voter ID laws are part and parcel, especially in the South.
want to get some real election protection processes in place: republicans begin committing massive vote fraud to overrun the dem vote fraud.
Doesn’t help when Soros purchases Secretaries of State, now does it?
If they started throwing the “officials” that certify this Frau in prison for twenty years it would stop. Otherwise we may have to resort to “other boxes” if the ballot box is broken. They can choose what they will but one of these boxes is gonna be used.
Minnesota blew it big time with this. I look upon 50% of Minnesotans with considerable disdain and anger.
We have a “must ask” requirement in Michigan but I’ve never seen anyone refuse to show ID but I don’t live in Detroit. In fact they use magnetic strip readers when we show ID.
Apparently the affidavit they have to sign if they refuse to show ID is a real concern to the fraudsters. We had illegals protesting the SOS the other day over her refusal to give them driver’s licenses and being singled out when (illegally) voting was one of their complaints.
I can’t believe I’m reading this.
So why after the 2010 GOP landslide victories don’t the GOP Gov’s and attorneys general put laws into place to correct these frauds????
What good are they if they don’t protect the electorate? I don’t ant them there just a figure heads! ACT like DEMS and DO SOMETHING!!!!!
Good heaven I am so angry!
North Carolina is becoming a third world country with regard to voting...the only reason Obama won in 08 and only reason he was close this year.
The GOP increased their power in both state bodies and won the State House, along with a key Supreme Court seat. I think that will allow the GOP to clean this up now, and NC will never go liberal again.
If they don’t, we’re a shaky red state at best.
That’s a good question. In NC, we needed a few more elected officials in place, and I think we got them in 2012.
I feel it is misplaced affluent White guilt that prevents the GOP from taking a stand against Democrats that accuse them of being racist and insensitive to diverse viewpoints or ascribe Republicans with morally equivalent duplicity.
The real fraud and the place to stop it is in the registration process.
Once they are on the voter rolls it is nearly impossible to stop it or even detect it. At that point ID, photo or otherwise, doesn’t matter because everything will match and there will be no challenge.
The Dems know this, which is why they and their surrogates like the SEIU, ACORN, La Raza, etc., put massive effort in registering illegals, college students in their school states, felons, snowbirds with homes in multiple states.
Nobody checks up on the registration forms and in most states you can register by mail or online or even on Election Day. Then if you are registered, you just have to show up on Election Day.
Never mind that; do it anyway.
One more reason the GOP needs to go out of business. (So do the Democrats, but that’s another issue.)
“This is an issue of the states and where the fight needs to be taken to.”
And then a federal judge pronounces the solution as illegal. This attitude is way the GOP continues to fail.
The Corrupt Party and the Stupid Party.
We have a REVOLUTIONARY Party and the Gelding Party.
Prince Reibus has to go. The sooner the better.
As long as people continue to believe these parties actually oppose each other we remain oblivious to what they actually cooperate on. These two organizations are accomplices and work together against all Americans. They work in ‘opposition’ like the two halves of a pair of shears, cutting away a little more liberty and a little more prosperity every decade.
