Liberals (practically speaking,Democrats) are addicted to power. Addicts will cheat, lie & betray to get more of what they crave. Let us stop being astonished, & begin planning the intervention. Because if we don't get control of this addiction, it will not merely destroy the addicted -- it will destroy our country & our children's futures. - Relentless resist their current attempts to subvert the voter rolls & elections; - Tireless work to win by a cheat-proof margin; - Ruthlessly change the rules to foreclose future cheating. Best regards,

The real issue is to get control of the courts. It was always the standard unti l Florida that the rules for recounts have to be in place before the election and it is the job of the court to see these rules are followed. But in each of these cases it was the courts that made up rules on the fly. Every one of these judges could and should have been removed from their posts and disbarredfor criminal malfeasance.

In the Minnesota case, one precinct had more ballots counted than they had registered voters, yet the courts declined to accept that as evidence of voter fraud.

There was one county in FL that did not have to recount - Brevard County had installed OCR type voting system and the count was so clean they were not forced to recount. West Palm had opted for the old style butterfly ballot with the punch outs - which were notorious for failures and for confusion to the voter - but you can't fix stupid and the ballots were confusing only to the stupid. We still have none of "found" ballots in car trunks...so it is great.
In the eyes of the Obama administration, most Democratic lawmakers and left-leaning editorial pages across the country, voter fraud is a problem that doesn't exist. Allegations of fraud, they say, are little more than pretexts conjured up by Republicans to justify voter ID laws designed to suppress Democratic turnout.

That argument becomes much harder to make after reading a discussion of the 2008 Minnesota Senate race in "Who's Counting?", a new book by conservative journalist John Fund and former Bush Justice Department official Hans von Spakovsky. Although the authors cover the whole range of voter fraud issues, their chapter on Minnesota...
