Posted on 10/12/2008 2:27:18 AM PDT by JohnHuang2
One of the perhaps most confusing sub-texts of the 2008 election has been the curious and in some cases surprising support that the candidates have and have not received from evangelical Christians. But if one looks at the record, and not merely the high rhetoric one thing for certain should be easily distinguishable - Barack Obama's record of votes, his view of government, and the ideas to which he aligns himself do not match the values, principles, and truths for biblical Christians. Continues...
Does Obama have any normal friends -- someone who isn't a terrorist, or racist preacher, or convicted felon or perpetrator of massive voter fraud?
Obama's community organizer chums at ACORN are now under criminal investigation in 11 states for engaging in staggering amounts of community organizing in the form of voter fraud and other patriotic activities on Obama's behalf. ACORN's "voter-registration" drive has assured voter fraud in Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, Colorado, Indiana, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Missouri, Michigan, Texas, Nevada, etc. Half of ACORN's voter registrations nationwide are phony. But bringing attention to this is called 'voter suppression' and 'hating poor people', according to hysterical liberals.
In Nevada, state officials who hate poor people raided ACORN's office this week after reports that its workers were falsifying forms with phony names and fake addresses out of love for poor people. Falsifying forms and submitting fake information amounts to 'preventing voter suppression', if you listen to the mindless blather from libbies.
It turns out that ACORN is so crooked, the press is starting to call the group 'controversial'! In fact, ACORN is so crawling with fraudsters, it gets funding from Congress.
Some of the latest:
-- In Nevada, ACORN used felons -- some of them convicted of identity theft -- to help in its voter-registration efforts. Nevada Secretary of State, Ross Miller, noted that some of the registration forms "were fraudulent; we basically had the starting lineup for the Dallas Cowboys." Frank Rich swiftly responded that the Dallas Cowboys just wanted to be able to vote in Nevada.
-- According to its Federal Elections Commission filings, the Obama campaign admits it paid Citizen Service Inc. over $832,000 within the last year. It turns out that ACORN has the same board of directors as Citizen Service. For libbies reading this, this means CS is a front group for ACORN. The Obama campaign's FEC report falsely claims CS's get-out-the-vote efforts were just "staging and lighting". Nothing to see here, move along.
-- The New York Post reports about an Ohio man who got paid off in cash and cigarettes by ACORN for registering to vote over 72 times during a period of 18 months. That's a fourth-degree felony in Ohio, punishable by a year in the slammer. The Post mentions another citizen named Lateala Goins who said she had registered to vote many times. "You can tell them [ACORN canvassers] you're registered as many times as you want -- they do not care," she said. ACORN voter fraud in Ohio is so massive, the New York Times even called it . . . "problematic".
-- In Connecticut, the State Elections Enforcement Commission is now investigating ACORN after reports that it submitted registration cards filled with fake information in Bridgeport. Many were duplicates. In one case, a seven-year-old girl was listed on the voter card as a 27-year-old. Armed with this knowledge, Connecticut ACORN honcho Emeline Bravo Blackwood said she's "proud" of the work they're doing.
-- In North Carolina, ACORN is turning in loads of fake voter registration forms, with the same names popping up many times. In one case, a 14-year-old signed up.
-- In Missouri, "officials are sifting through possibly hundreds of questionable or duplicate voter-registration forms submitted by" ACORN, the AP acknowledges. The fraudulent registration forms, with hundreds of phony addresses, unverifiable driver's licenses, unverifiable Social Security numbers "were bogging down work Wednesday, the final day Missourians could register to vote." In response, ACORN said "we're proud to be out there doing the patriotic thing."
-- In Houston County, Texas, 40 percent of the 27,000 registration cards gathered by ACORN from January through July have been rejected or placed in limbo pending the gathering of more information," such as whether Clark Kent and Lois Lane submitted valid Social Security numbers. Houston County hates poor people!
-- In Indiana, about 2,500 fraudulent voter registrations have been filed by ACORN in the last two weeks alone, maybe as many as 5,100. In a hint of possible problems, some of the new voters were dead when they signed up. A restaurant chain called "Jimmy Johns" tried to sign up as a voter! Hundreds of applications were apparently signed by one person. Secretary of State Todd Rokita said he's turning over the evidence he's uncovered to Indiana's Attorney General, since Attorney Generals hate poor people too.
Obama's ACORN pals are so stupid, they didn't think the garbage-truckloads of bogus registrations might be tracked back to them. They must've been trained by Odumbo. Oh wait -- they were. Obama's in deep with the group, having been their trial lawyer. In the mid-'90s, he represented them in a lawsuit against the state of Illinois for allegedly not implementing the Motor Voter law, designed to make it easier for Mary Poppins and Dick Tracy to register. Obama also got gigs on the ACORN-linked boards of the Joyce Foundation and Woods Fund, both of which shoveled big bucks to ACORN's Chicago branch.
In a total shock, ACORN endorsed Obama for president. On his official website, Obama touts the endorsement, saying "I've been fighting alongside ACORN on issues that you care about my entire career" -- such as bringing ACORN's advanced quality-control system to Washington! On his official website, Obama also says he has no connection to ACORN. Documents showing Obama palling around with ACORN and working closely with its voter-registration drive have magically vanished from his website.
Pundits keep telling themselves Obama's a lock, election's in the bag, but the surge in fraudulent voter registrations suggests the opposite. You don't try to steal an election if you think you've got it all sewed up.

Send this to EVERY Obama supporter you know. Ask them, if they care at all about what happened to the Hillary supporters during the primary!
Clinton Supporters Share Evidence For RICO Case Against Obama:
The lib/commies say we're hitting the arab kid with guilt by association because of him being mentored by Bill Ayers and having a pastor for 20 years who as regards 9/11 says "the chickens have come home to roost."
I always thought that guilt by association was rejection of a proposition because there is a person holding the proposition who is odious.
For example, people say smoking is bad but Adolf Hitler says smoking is bad; ergo, I will no longer hold that proposition because of the odiousness of Hitler (see guilt by association ).
But, guilt by association is not that we cannot judge B. Hussein Obama because he has Bill Ayers as his mentor and ghostwriter, he stayed in Pastor Wright's church for 20 years, he was a member of a Socialist party back in the 90s; etc.
The lib/commies are distorting the meaning of a logical fallacy in order to push B Hussein Obama.
And they've been getting away with it too because I've seen no one challenging their description of "guilt by association."
Or are the lib/commies right and I am wrong on this issue?
Excellent JH2, thanks!!
JH2, I appreciate your sharp wit, political intelligence, ability to sort through the political crap and get the truth out to this forum. I truely enjoy every post. I just wanted to sayThank you” After all of these years on Free Republic”, your posts are what I look forward to the most. Your contribution to this forum and “Americam Truth” in politics has been immeasurable. I pray every day that people get the messages you articulate so well.
Lets see ya knock that idea into a cocked hat!!!
See Barack Obama has lesser judgement than you, because while you would never associate with a racist - he let himself be mentored by one: Dr. Jeremiah Wright. While you love your country and grieved the loss of 9.11.2001, Barack Obama has had a close relationship with someone who told all of America on 9.11 that he wished he could have terrorized the nation more. In fact Obama let this terrorist raise money for him, he served with him on two different boards, and they even partnered together to help infect the educational system in Chicago. Obama believed he could keep it quiet, and has repeatedly lied about his ties to this terrorist: William Ayers. Obama entered into deals he knew were shady with the now convicted felon: Tony Rezko. And it is now being revealed that Barack Obama helped the organization ACORN shakedown the banks that eventually caused the markets to lose nearly 9 trillion dollars of savings, retirement, and investment just this week.
How does any of this differ from the democRat party? They have been giving preference to people based on skin color for half a century.
They have been working hard to cripple the US economy since the Johnson presidency. Carter was a pro.
The left has been supporting military enemies of Liberty for decades. They supported the North Vietnamese, the Cuban regime, the Nicaraguan assault on the Contra freedom fighters, The Weatherman, the PLO, and the list goes on.
And research has shown that almost all election fraud has been on the democRat side.
So why isn't Obama the logical choice for that party?
Thank you so much for your excellent wrap-up!
Dear Lord...save us from that!
"You don't try to steal an election if you think you've got it all sewed up."
Excellent, as usual!
Thank you for all of your efforts.
Kevin McCullough and JohnHuang2 bump!
