As new scandals erupt daily concerning the sleazy attempts of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) to steal the upcoming Presidential election, it is worth looking to the not-so-distant past and investigate the role that ACORN played in the defeat of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton during the Democratic Party Caucuses and Primaries. Given ACORN's strong and undeniable ties to both Senator Barack Obama and his campaign, and their proven track record of aggressive deception, duplicity, fraud, and corruption, it is instructive to see if their present attempts at vote fraud reflect earlier efforts in the Democratic Caucuses and Primaries.
This basic, explicit question that must be asked by all concerned Democrats, Republicans, and Independants is this: Did ACORN register inelgible voters, collect invalid names, engage in voter intimidation, or seek to cast unlawful votes in the Democratic Party nomination process, and if so, was that a factor in Obama's narrow win?
Not only should supporters of Senator Clinton be outraged by this plausible likelihood, but every voter in America who cherishes our sacred rights and the integrity of our election system should be angered ... and demanding some immediate answers.
There is ample evidence of ACORN's unholy marriage of partisan "ends justifies the means" ethos combined with their shoddy recruiting, hiring, training, and accountability practices. This, combined with election officials and courts in certain districts who are hell-bent on rushing through every registration - without credibly checking voter identification - is a recipe for disaster. Indeed, it is a recipe for voter fraud on an unprecedented scale.
The Far Left often accuses Conservatives of "voter supression." The fact is, Conservatives are delighted when legitimate voters exercise their Constitutional right to vote; but Conservatives must unapologetically stand with fair-minded Democrats and Independants in calling for a supression of lawlessness and fraud on Election Day. This is not a peripheral or tangential issue; it goes straight to the heart of Obama's personal integrity, his deeply troublesome alliances with radical individuals and groups, and his true vision for America.
Part of this process is in demanding an immediate investigation into the role that ACORN played in the Democratic Primaries. In invite every concerned citizen to join with me in broadcasting this demand to their friends, to every elected official, law enforcement agency, and responsible media outlet.
For more on Obama's strong alliance with ACORN, and ACORN's widespread and corrupt activities (not only in the vote fraud scandal, but also their profound role in helping to cause the current US financial crisis):
The impact of ACORN on this election strikes at the heart of democracy itself. We can all argue amongst ourselves about the role of government, or on specific issues. However, the principal of one person one vote is the lynchpin of American government. ACORN putting that principal in jeopardy threatens the integrity of our whole system of government. Clinton supporters were the first to see this threat to the Democratic system during the primaries and particularly the caucuses. As Pajamas Media reports that complaints about caucus fraud were largely chalked up to 'sour grapes', but research shows there were serious problems with the way the caususes were run.
Here is an article from Seattle that I seeded back in the Summer of 2007 about ACORN:
How ACORN and Obama contributed to the current US financial mess:
Any thinking citizen, after reading these and other articles about ACORN and Obama, should be outraged and alarmed and demanding immediate action.
