Detroit Free press is a well respected newspaper. The ACORN and Obama issue is huge, and must be dealt with ASAP.

This is about the lamest thread I've seen so far.

Every year GOP claims voter fraud.

Alberto Gonzalez (Since resigned in shame) had every GOP State Attorney General in the Country going after this fantasy crime and they had no convictions. Not a single instance where they found any large scale fraud.


It's an GOP urban legend.

Of course it doesn't. You make up your mind without knowledge. Without the facts.

There were people telling me that Mi voters were voting there and in Fl too.
I don't think they ever sorted it out does anyone know. There needs to be a National database that tags duplicate names no matter the state.

You apparently didn't read the list I provided of ACORN people convicted of fraud. This is a big problem.

And you must have missed the NYT expose on the group and the million dollar embezzlement, too. Urban legend? You wish.

Operating in at least 38 states (as well as Canada and Mexico), Acorn pushes a highly partisan agenda, and its organizers are best understood as shock troops for the AFL-CIO and even the Democratic Party. As part of the Fannie Mae reform bill, House Democrats pushed an "affordable housing trust fund" designed to use Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac profits to subsidize Acorn, among other groups. A version of this trust fund actually passed the Republican House and will surely be on the agenda again next year.
And even the Dems are concerned:

Quote:
Acorn and its affiliates have pulled some real stunts in recent years. In Ohio in 2004, a worker for one affiliate was given crack cocaine in exchange for fraudulent registrations that included underage voters, dead voters and pillars of the community named Mary Poppins, Dick Tracy and Jive Turkey. During a Congressional hearing in Ohio in the aftermath of the 2004 election, officials from several counties in the state explained Acorn's practice of dumping thousands of registration forms in their lap on the submission deadline, even though the forms had been collected months earlier.

"You have to wonder what's the point of that, if not to overwhelm the system and get phony registrations on the voter rolls," says Thor Hearne of the American Center for Voting Rights, who also testified at the hearing. "These were Democratic officials saying that they felt their election system in Ohio was under assault by these kinds of efforts to game the system."

I would like to know if the new registerd dem voters (which Im part of) mostly registered in states that are normally won by dems anyway, or did we turn some red states pink. I don't care about the polls, please don't give me poll numbers. I want to know new voter registration numbers by state. I cant google this for some reason. Also is there a chance if anybody knows the demographics of the new voters. This is important because young voters have historically not voted in the general election. Older voters from 40-90 determine elections.

This is very important to me because if I feel the republicans are going to take over again, I need to start buying precious metals for trade, and need some bars around my windows from when the country falls in chaos.

I really believe if its close, they win. They will cheat, and so will we, but they are much better at it.

If we are not winning the swing states by 5 or more points each, they will steal it.
