Since I have been blamed and called "far right" "loony" "racist" "anit Obama"...etc....let's make this part abundantly clear!

"Neither the Democratic Party nor the Obama campaign worked with ACORN on the voter drive."

Will you speak out against these atrocious acts?

And then:

"The Republican National Committee on Wednesday pointed to reports of suspect ACORN work in states including Missouri, Connecticut, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Indiana, and questioned its motives and agenda."

They continue to act like these are limited cases but over and over and over they keep making headline. Let us help perserve one of our few rights to vote out politicians into office and speak out strongly against these types of behaviors. Talking about disenfranchising and then condoning these actions is hypocritical at best and undermines our entire political system.

Until all the facts come out what is atrocious? If it was systematic voter fraud dictated from the top down then they should be prosecuted. I haven't read any evidence of such in any of these reports.

It happens over and over and over.... At what point does the management lose it's credit? You can only speak out against it so many times until you just show you really could care less as long as you're agenda is achieved.

Neither the Democratic Party nor the Obama campaign worked with ACORN on the voter drive.

But with the election less than a month away and Nevada one of a half-dozen top swing states, partisans rushed in to make hay of the controversy, with its dark undertones of dirty political tricks. The Republican National Committee on Wednesday pointed to reports of suspect ACORN work in states including Missouri, Connecticut, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Indiana, and questioned its motives and agenda.

“This group is engaged in a systematic effort to undermine our electoral system,” the RNC’s Danny Diaz said in a telephone news conference.

Authorities, however, emphasized that they do not believe the election will be tainted because faked registrations wouldn’t make it past the checks they’re subject to. Phony addresses and duplicates never make it onto the voter rolls; registrations without valid driver’s license or Social Security numbers require identification be shown at the polls.

“The investigation into potential registration fraud should not diminish Nevada voters’ confidence that only eligible voters will be able to cast ballots on November 4th,” Miller, a Democrat, said. “The investigation and information obtained in furtherance of executing the search warrant proves that our system works.”

You would do the same thing and try and minimize the problem because you know they are for you're candidate.

One persons vote being disenfranchised is wrong. Do you disagree with that? I read what I post. I made it very very clear in my OP. I did edit so I made it SO CLEAR! Do you speak out against these atrocities or do you feel since they are helping you're side it's a okay?

And since you apparently can't read:

Should the true American lose to the terrorist sympathizer on election night look for this one to go to the court system. Hopefully ALL that ACORN bought gets disallowed and the trash that committed the fraud is dealt with in a harsh way.

The Obama campaign has declined to address the links beyond noting that the campaign and ACORN do not work together in any way. In a prepared statement, campaign spokeswoman Kirsten Searer said, “The Obama campaign is committed to protecting the integrity of the voting process. We support the secretary of state’s investigation and full prosecution of any illegal activities.”

The Nevada Democratic Party also condemned “any efforts to improperly register voters.”

You're stupidity still seems to think this is against Obama. Apparently you associate the non-partisan group with Obama like so many others.

I think you are talking about your fellow McBush-ites here. My posts are more for them, since you get offended so easily.

Can you re-phrase that? I'm sorry I really am honestly just having a hard time trying to figure out what you meant.
