Election 2014: Desperate Dems Take Chicago Way Nationwide

Resorting to shameful tactics to whip up black turnout isn’t going to prevent Democrats from having to pay the piper for their appalling misrule. But massive voter fraud might. For an idea of what to expect, turn to the Chicago-dominated political cesspool that spawned Obama:

State lawmakers enacted a series of one-time changes to make early voting easier for this election only, leading some critics to contend the move was made for political reasons tied to the hotly contested governor race between Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn and Republican challenger Bruce Rauner.

These changes are not for the better:

[P]eople voting early this year will no longer have to show an ID. Voters will also be able to register to vote and cast a ballot on Election Day — what is known as same-day registration.

This is a well-known recipe for widescale fraud that has already been tried in neighboring Wisconsin with predictable results.

Other Chicago Way tactics include someone seeing to it that the Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Chad Grimm appears on the ballot, but not the Green Party candidate. The Operating Engineers Union donated a 6-figure sum to Grimm, with the obvious intent of drawing votes from Republicans.

Most brazen of all, we have already seen how Cook County voting machines may count your vote for the Democrat no matter who you vote for.

We are all used to tales of terror regarding Chicago politics. But with Obama’s ascension to the White House, this phenomenon has gone national. Not long ago, Colorado was a red state — i.e., a decent, wholesome place. Now look what’s going on amid the clouds of marijuana smoke:

In 2013, a new Democratic state legislature rammed through a sweeping and highly controversial election law and convinced Democratic governor John Hickenlooper to sign it. The law, known as House Bill 1303, makes Colorado the only state in the country to combine two radical changes in election law: 1) abolishing the traditional polling place and having every voter mailed a ballot and 2) establishing same-day registration, which allows someone to appear at a government office and register and vote on the same day without showing photo ID or any other verifiable evidence that establishes identity. If they register online a few days before, no human being ever has to show up to register or vote. A few keystrokes can create a voter and a “valid” ballot. Once a ballot cast under same-day registration is mixed in with others, there is no way to separate it out if the person who voted is later found ineligible. Other jurisdictions that have same-day registration, such as Washington, D.C., treat the vote as a provisional ballot pending verification. Colorado immediately counts the vote. …

Having suffered stinging defeat at the polls, advocates of same-day registration were careful in 2013 to have it approved by the state legislature instead of the people. They rammed through the bill without any bipartisan input. It allowed those running voter-registration drives to delay delivery of the registrations they accepted, reducing the time available to check the data on them. It stripped county clerks of the ability to review new voter registrations and forced every Colorado voter to receive a mail ballot, including 800,000 who had clearly expressed their desire to vote only at polling places. Ballots will be mailed to people who don’t vote and no longer live in Colorado, because the law makes it very difficult to remove names from the voting rolls.

No reasonable person could deny that the glaringly obvious intent of this bill was to facilitate voter fraud, which always benefits Democrats because they tend to be the kind of people who cheat, whereas Republicans tend to be the kind of people who play by the rules. There is a fundamental moral difference between those who want to spend other people’s money and those who just want to keep what they have earned.

To further encourage fraud,

All mail-in ballots in Colorado will be ripe for abuse because “ballot harvesters” are allowed to go door-to-door and collect up to ten ballots with no effective enforcement if they collect more and deliver them at other times. … The potential for harvesters to pressure voters to turn over ballots, open ballot envelopes, alter ballots, or even throw them away is real.

You can be sure opportunities for fraud will be exploited. James O’Keefe recently established the willingness of liberal political operatives in Colorado to obtain Democrat votes by any means necessary.

Meanwhile, in another state that was only recently red,

With the North Carolina U.S. Senate race in a dead heat, state election officials say they have discovered 145 names on the voting rolls who are ineligible to vote because they are illegal immigrants who have been granted President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.

Most likely this is the tip of an illegal alien iceberg with the potential to pierce the hulls of Republican campaigns.

After 2012, Democrats figured out that Republicans do not have the spine to call them on election fraud. Consequently you can expect it to become ever more blatant until the very concept of elections collapses into farce, as in other banana republics.

No need for legitimate elections; the oligarchy knows better than voters.
