An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
In typical Democrat fashion, any ability to fight voter fraud is being blocked. This is nothing new for them, it’s been going on quite a while. The latest target in the corrupt Democrat machine of Barack Obama and Eric Holder is Texas. There are people here in Texas who are just as fed up as those in the rest of the country with the constant blatant racism of this Attorney General and his minions.
Demonstrating the need for Texas’s law, a Texas-based group called True the Vote has found many instances of the very voter registration irregularities that Voter ID is designed to prevent from turning into fraudulent votes, and thus to shield our elections from some of the easiest to perpetrate forms of corruption. They found particular problems in the Houston-area district of Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee who, as usual, cried “racist!”
I know it’s not funny, but I can only chuckle when I hear Shelia Jackson Lee spouting her ‘racist’ line. Doesn’t matter what it is about, that’s her battle cry, and too many follow along blindly. What is racist is the obvious fraud that has been perpetrated on the American people, of all colors, by the Democrat Party. This isn’t new. Since the days of Reconstruction, the Democrats have been targeting white AND black Americans. Their history is steeped in racism and violence.
Don’t believe me? Go to the National Black Republican Association website, read for yourself. Educate yourself on the REAL history, and who it has been, closing in on 2 centuries, that has fought any progress for black Americans. Talk to people like Alfonzo Rachel, Stacy Swimp, and Lloyd Marcus. Learn from Thomas Sowell, Frantz Kebreau, Kevin Jackson, Starr Parker and many more. Listen to Representatives Allen West and Tim Scott.
Ya just gotta love those Dems who equate voter ID with ‘bringing back Jim Crow‘. (My goodness, that’s one extremely ignorant woman! Y’all should be embarrassed!) Well, they should know better, since it was the DEMOCRATS who enacted those laws. But even they are willfully ignorant of their own history. Or perhaps they choose to keep their followers blindly in the dark? Apparently, it’s another one of those important tidbits that is being left out of our public school system. Why would the Democrats, and their ‘strong armed unions’ want our kids to learn the REAL history of the country?
One of the points in history that is being overlooked took place after WWII, when the veterans were coming home, trying to make their way, and fit back in to their home towns. Last week, I posted a video by Wild Bill who touched on the subject of McMinn County Tennessee. Yesterday, Doc sent me a video from a ‘made for tv’ movie covering the subject as well.
There had been long-standing concern in McMinn County about political corruption and possible election fraud. At citizen request, the U.S. Department of Justice had investigated allegations of electoral fraud in 1940, 1942, and 1944, but had not taken action. The wealthy Cantrell family (supporters of the Democrats’ New Deal policies in the 1932 Presidential elections) essentially ruled the county. Paul Cantrell was elected sheriff in the 1936, 1938, and 1940 elections, then was elected to the state senate in 1942 and 1944, while his former deputy, Pat Mansfield, was elected sheriff. A state law enacted in 1941 had reduced local political opposition by reducing the number of voting precincts from 23 to 12 and reducing the number of justices of the peace from fourteen to seven (including four “Cantrell men”). The sheriff and his deputies operated a fee system under which they received a cut of the money for every person they booked, incarcerated, and released; the more arrests, the more money they made. Often, buses passing through the county were pulled over and the passengers were randomly ticketed for drunkenness, whether guilty or not.
In the August 1946 election, Paul Cantrell was once again a candidate for sheriff, while Pat Mansfield sought the state senate seat. After World War II ended, some 3,000 military veterans (constituting about 10 percent of the county population) had returned to McMinn County. Some of the returning veterans resolved to challenge Cantrell’s political control by fielding their own nonpartisan candidates and working for a fraud-free election.
The purpose of Voter ID is to prevent fraud. The purpose of the Justice Department of Eric Holder and Barack Obama is to insure it. You need ID to do business with your bank, and buy alcohol, and rent movies, buy a vehicle, etc. In Mexico, you need a Voter ID.
Just to be clear, the nations comprising this supposed champion of human rights include dictatorial and oppressive regimes like China, Cuba, and Russia. (source)
Just in case you were unaware, the author of the piece is Ken Blackwell, an American, who just happens to be black.
When you stop and think about it, do you honestly believe the people of Minnesota are really so stupid as to elect a very bad comedienne to the Senate? If they are, then perhaps they shouldn’t vote? Just sayin’.
It is my opinion that the Democrats fear they cannot win on their record, so they must resort to fraud. When the truth comes out about their records, it really is a very ugly picture that is painted. We NEED proof that voters are not breaking the law. We need to know our vote counts. We don’t trust the government, and for good reason. I’d really hate to see something like the incident in McMinn County happen again! Maybe that’s exactly what those who oppose legal voting are hoping will happen?
