I completely agree that such fraud is immoral and corrosive of civic virtue.
My point is that it was not a significant cause of Romney’s loss, nor likely a significant factor (as compared to inadvertent error and politicized but legal techniques of manipulation) in the result of elections for any Federal office in 2012.
You are utterly wrong! Frankly, I am greatly offended and fed up with all of these attempts over the years to downplay the consequences of vote fraud. I was denied thee right to vote in California when Democrats threatened to have me arrested and dragged off to jail for having the temerity to walk into my assigned polling place, present my voter registration card, California Driver’s License with picture ID, and my USAF Identity card with picturee ID. The Democrats removed me from the precinct’s list of registered voters and substituted some Hispanic named illegal immigrants whose fraudulent California Driver’s Licenses had been received in the mail months earlier. All attempts to report the crimes to the varous California authorities were refuseed. The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and the California Attorney General’s office even threatened to arrest me for trying to report the crimes, because they wrongfully accused me of opening the California Department of Motor Vehicles mail. Like you, every one of those people downplayed the consequences of the systematic fraud. Orange County Republicans succeeded in getting a district court conviction of the Democratic party after decades of trying, only to have the Democrats on the appellate court reverse the conviction on false technicalities.
One out of every five voter registrations in Ohio were illegitimate. A number of key Ohio counties had more registered voters than they had voting aged population. There were only a little over 100,000 votes different. Subtract the illegitimate votes, add Romney’s portion of the uncounted 200,000 provisional votes, and add the uncounted military votes, and you have a large victory for Romney in Ohio and its electoral votes.
In Florida, the margin was only a little over 40,000 votes and one-half of one percent of the vote. Add the military votes alone aand you have Romney winning Florida and its electoral votes. The same is true for a number of other states.
Frankly, I think you owe an apology for the thousands upon thousands of voters of all parties who have been victimized by massive vote fraud and then victimized over and over again in as this vote fraud disenfranchises them again and again in the following elections. The vote fraud in this election is massivee and makes a huge difference in many ways, including perhpas the outcome of the election, not to mention voter apathy.
