Eenie-Meenie-Miney-Mo… Vote counting in the new millennium

Perhaps that is overstating the process and, as the new year arrives, this beleaguered election is finally about over. Tabulating the vote appears to have gone from actual counting to digging through basements, warehouses, dusty boxes and car backseats to mine for ballots. There have been outcries about the growing problem of skewing the count for twenty-five years – longer if you go back in time to the complaints that surrounded the original Daley Machine in Chicago.

The wonder of it all is how the Democrat-aligned League of Women Voters has been central in the election oversight process for decades (“Votescam: The Stealing of America” by Kenneth Collier and James Lincoln Collier, 1993) and at the beginning of the height of accusations about vote fraud by those same Democrats in the 2000 national election.

When viewed through the magnifying glass of how elections have been manipulated over time, it has always been Democrat voices that have been loudest in charging abuse, yet in every instance it is also the Democrat candidate that miraculously discovers more votes, rarely (ever?) the Republican.

What does that tell the average person? The answer seems clear to this observer, who has been more than attentive in the last twenty years. Human nature is such that the person who seeks most to throw suspicion on someone else for their own misdeeds will raise their voices loudest in making accusations against others of what they have themselves perpetrated. You don’t have to be a psychology professional to reach the conclusion that the guilty most vociferously decry the culpability of others while claiming their own innocence. Just watch children on the playground for textbook examples of the behavior. This is what we have been witnessing over this new millennium in particular.

Setting the stage for manipulation of the vote began in earnest in the 2000 presidential race. It’s unlikely the scheme was expected to work that early in the game. It was more to program the American people to accept the coming wave of challenged races such as we have just seen. The process began with skewing polls and taking so many unscientific polls that any survey with credibility was overwhelmed by the sheer number of the subjective samplings. The media was central in this. The process continued with incompetent reporting of ‘news’ and character assassination of ‘opposition’ candidates, i.e. Republicans. Creating celebrity status for a ‘right-thinking’ (in leftist terms) candidate came soon after.

The first real test of the old plan came in 2004 in the state of Washington’s gubernatorial race. It was a tight race to begin with, but with every recount a number of ballots were ‘discovered’ that favored the Democrat candidate. It finally worked! The Democrats cheered and the Republicans were shut down in the courts even though the evidence weighed heavily in the favor of proving misfeasance of election management.

Four years later, race after race has been closely contested where ‘new’ ballots were allegedly found in dubious places, such as the car of an election official in Minnesota, though that was supposedly discredited. After numerous ‘eureka’ cries were heard over new-found ballots and the court ordered acceptance of ballots that did not meet mandatory standards, the senate seat in that state looks like it’s being handed to the Democrat as the ‘winner.’ Sound familiar?

In Washington State, where the voter registration rolls were examined before the 2008 election, numerous illegally registered names and dead people could have been culled. They were not, due to this fact: the Washington election officials stated that they were unwilling to have theoretically disenfranchised voters instigate legal proceedings after the election.

Let’s get this straight… your vote may have been discounted because of threatened litigation by known felons, imaginary cartoon characters and corpses. If it weren’t such a serious deficiency of accountability that verges on criminality, it would be hysterically funny.

Consider the fact that more and more states, including Washington, have moved to institute mail-in ballots, closing down precinct voting where a person must physically appear and prove their identity. This practice has created the growing industry of inventing registrants out of thin air. How easy has it become for one person to impersonate any number of individuals (real or concocted) in order to cast one or several ballots if they are not required to appear with proper identification?

One other observation. Take a gander at the previously designated western ‘red’ states that are largely rural or sparsely inhabited except for one or two major population centers. These liberal leaning hubs appear to have been targeted by ACORN for swinging (manipulating) the vote and, lo and behold, this election year the formerly ‘red’ state has flipped to become ‘blue.’ Hey, it’s just a theory.

Clearly, the election process has degraded to the level of a banana republic and we aren’t even paying attention because the other guy infuriatingly, and falsely, pointed fingers from the outset.
