Potentially protected at Justice by Attorney General Holder, to add insult to injustice, ACORN is further eligible for funding by our tax dollars through the 2009 stimulus bill to the tune of somewhere between 3 and 5 billion dollars.
But how about the president? He surely cannot condone protecting a criminal enterprise bent on corrupting American elections, can he? As a matter of fact, Barack Obama’s campaign paid ACORN $800,000 to register voters in the last election. Early in his career, he was recruited to train its members in “community organizing.” In an appearance at an official event for ACORN in 2008, he was introduced and greeted wildly by the crowd. When asked if he would meet with them within his first 100 days, he replied, “Yes! Before I even get inaugurated, we’re going to be calling all of you in so you can have input into the agenda of the next president of the United States.”
Soon after his election, Barack Obama shifted responsibility for the crucial American Census from the Secretary of Commerce to the White House under the supervision of Rahm Emmanuel. The census helps establish the size of Congressional Districts to determine the number of Congressmen from those districts plus the outcome of the Electoral College, based on population. Incredulously, in March, Obama’s Census Bureau office invited the corrupt ACORN to help count heads in the 2010 census. With the strong suspicion by many that the administration may go back on their stated opposition to sampling, the manipulation of this process could mean as many as 30 new Democratic seats in Congress and a definite inflation of minority and immigrant voters to impact the Electoral College.
That would be an absolute breach of the Constitutional mandate to count every head, but absolutely congruent with the American Constitution Society’s goal to change it. In one fell swoop—or maybe two—the elections could be corrupted and the Constitution ignored.
But bastardizing the election and the census might still not be enough. Leaving no stone unturned, in January Representative Jose Serrano, Democrat from New York, introduced a measure (H.J. Res. 5) to repeal the 22nd Amendment prohibiting a president from serving more than two terms.
President Barack Obama … for life?
With all this careful planning, an ACORN may indeed bring down a mighty oak.
