Google search “voter fraud”. Give “electoral fraud” a shot, while you’re at it.
Now, forget about what’s happening in Sierra Leone for the time being. As awful as it is – and it is awful! – the alleged rigging of elections in the tiny, coastal, north-western African country pales in comparison to what is being broadcast half a world away in the world’s greatest republic.
Oops. Did I say “broadcast”? Shucks. What I meant was “ignored”.
Now, put on that search filter and focus in on what’s been happening in the continental United States.
What do you see? Yup. A story being spun on race-bait tactics from a Republican Party chairman in Maine.
Hmm. Interesting. But that’s not even what I’m talking about.
Forget about the fact said out-going chairman, Charlie Webster, has some serious misgivings about what went down in his own backyard a fortnight ago. Webster may have pulled an Akian-Mourdocksin in how he explained it initially, but re-iterated this week that his intention was to “talk not about race but about perceived voting irregularities”
So, yes. Scratch that story, too.
But you’re heating up.
What is the “voter fraud” story that is being largely ignored by the mainstream media? It’s this story that saw the light of day a week ago.
According to NBC Chicago, in 37 precincts Mitt Romney received zero votes.
Shut out in the Windy City, Mitt also got no love in the City of Brotherly Love.
No love, as in, no votes. In 59 precincts.
A commenter on the NBC Chicago website put his own topping on this turd sundae –
In critical swing states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Illinois there are a lot of precincts in Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Chicago which reported 100% of their votes cast for Obama. These add up to many 10’s of thousands of votes for Obama and 0 for Romney. I repeat, 0 for Romney. I have read a number of articles about this and people knowlegable in Political Science and Statistics are starting to take notice of this.Statistically, even if among 10’s of thousands of voters all wanted to vote for Obama, it would not be possible to receive 100% of the vote because at least a few would make a mistake and vote incorrectly for Romney. Not to mention the fact that a least a few of those 10’s of thousands might actually disagree with Obama. These types of election returns are only seen in countries run by dictators.
Did you catch that last part?
“These types of election returns are only seen in countries run by dictators.”
One history course I’ll never forget taking while at the University of Western Ontario was “Totalitarianism in the 20th Century”.
I’ll admit, I’m not one for sooth-saying (actually, it’s against my religion… like TOTALLY against my religion) but there is a writing on the wall that is getting more legible as each day passes.
Stuff is going to hit the fan.
We must brace ourselves.
Check that. Brace ourselves, and run at it full-steam.
But fear ye not! We get a most splendid opportunity at etching out sainthood!
And you can take THAT to the bank.
Or, just stuff it under your mattress.
