In today's Wall Street Journal http://opinonjournal.com, columnist John Fund has a fascinating column on voter fraud being perpetuated by Democrats throughout the United States and the in credulousness of the aforementioned Dems and their allies.
You see, for the past eight years the Democrat machines in many parts of the United States has been talking about voter fraud that was done by Republicans with the largest being, take your pick, Florida in the 2000 presidential election or Ohio in the 2004 presidential election.
In 2000, then Governor George W. Bush won Florida by 527 votes after the Democrats tried as they could to steal the election by forcing local election boards to count potential votes. Yet, the same Democrats saw nothing wrong with that. These are the same Democrats who tried to suppress the votes of military members serving abroad in both 2000 and 2004. The fact is, George W. Bush won Florida no matter how the Democrats tried to divine votes. A consortium of news groups, led by the old gray lady herself, the New York Times, concluded that Gov. Bush won Florida.
But, the Dems still do not believe that to this day. Dems still think that Florida was "stolen".
Let me say that if any group knows how to steal votes and or elections, it is the Democrat party. There is no doubt in my mind that had Mayor Daley in Chigago had not waken the dead to vote and Sen. Lyndon Johnson made up voters in Texas, Republican Richard M. Nixon and not Democrat John F. Kennedy would have won the 1960 presidential election.
But, somehow the Dems have perpetuated another myth. That the Republicans stole the 2004 presidential election in Ohio by a few tricks such as voter suppression and broken voting machines. Yes, the Republicans suppressed over 120,000 Ohio voters who would have voted for Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass). Yet, too many people believe that.
Thus, when in the Mr. Fund column he cites cases of Democrat voter fraud, no one on that side wants to talk about it. In fact, Vermont Sen. Patrick Lehey says that there is no voter fraud problem. Boy, did he say that in 2000 and 2004 in regard to the Presidential election?
Read Mr. Fund's column, but note what Mr. Fund wrote in his book on election fraud.
Democrats need to win elections and need to be in power because many can not do anything else. It is essentially what they trained for. They know nothing else. Republicans usually do not have the same problem as so many come from the private sector and can always go back there.
So, Democrats will ignore blatant voter fraud to their benefit, but make up voter fraud when Republicans win elections because, yes the Democrats do believe this, people can not really vote for Republicans. But, the dead always vote Democrat
