Dangers Of Voter Registration Fraud


By Ron Spangler
By now most Americans have heard or read something about all of the voter registration fraud going on in American. Most of the political pundits and commentators look at it and say its not important in the election. They would have people believe that our election process at the local level is so secure that even though the dead have been registered and some individuals have registered up to 70 times, they will be caught if they try to vote and their votes will not be counted.

They point to all of the good things ACORN (the biggest culprit behind registration fraud) has accomplished, like registering 1.3 million new voters. They gloss over the fact that ACORN is pushing all new voters to sign up as Democrats and vote for Obama. These pundits and commentators that are passing themselves off to be legitimate journalists overlook the obvious danger in voter registration fraud. Remember a lot of these folks are the same ones that deny Democrats like Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Maxine Walters, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and yes Barack Obama had anything to do with the current economic crisis.

The most glaring danger of registration fraud results in a form of voter suppression. If you watch news reports and watch the polls, McCain supporters will get the impression it is all over and their votes will be meaningless. With so many new Democrat registrations and so few McCain supporters how in the world could McCain ever win? With this in mind, why should we even bother to vote? According to television reports and all of the polls, Democrats will sweep the election at both the National and Local levels. So why should Republicans and Independent McCain supporters waste their time? Doesn't America deserve what she gets if Obama and the Democrats gain complete control of both the Congress and White House?

These are depressing and defeatists thoughts that could lead many to stay home and not bother to vote. After all if you're a Indianapolis Colts fan and their opponent is leading the game by 21 points with only 5 minutes left, isn't it time to leave the stadium or turn the channel. Maybe not. Ask any NFL fan what can happen in the last 5 minutes of a football game, especially with Peyton Manning and the Colts. Many a day I have been on the edge of my chair ready to change the channel. Unfortunately for me sometimes I did change the channel only to find out after it was over that the Colts stepped up and won the game in the last 2 or 3 minutes. I can't explain the remorse I felt for not hanging in and having faith.

Unlike the clowns on television and experts running the polls I will not give in, give up, or voluntarily surrender America to Obama and the Democrats like the ones that are truly responsible for the economic chaos facing America. Groups like ACORN can do whatever they like to discourage me but it will not happen. Senator McCain may not have it in his DNA to attack a fellow Senator with stories he believes to be untrue or use character assassination to win an election, but he does place the interest of America and the American people above all else. I cannot say the same is true for Senator Obama and the Democratic Party. If McCain supporters act like NFL fans and stay true to their team, never give up and stay involved they cannot lose.
