As you may know, I’ve been on the receiving end of voter fraud. We recently reported on the early release of Melowese Richardson in Ohio who was convicted of several counts of voter fraud during the 2012 election. She was supposed to serve a five-year sentence, but Al Sharpton’s National Action Network petitioned for her release and celebrated her at a rally — held at a church of course. Oh, the hypocrisy.
Now, the National Review reports the discovery of tens of thousands of suspicious voter records: “North Carolina’s Board of Elections found that tens of thousands of registered voters from the state have personal information matching that of registered voters in other states, and appear to have voted in states other than North Carolina in 2012. In some cases, votes were cast under names of individuals who had passed away before Election Day.”
The review searched databases in 27 other states and 101 million voter records for information such as matching names, dates of birth, and Social Security numbers. The review found that 35,570 North Carolina voters from 2012 shared the same first names, last names, and dates of birth with individuals who voted in other states. Another 765 Tar Heel State residents who voted in 2012 had the same names, birthdays, and final four digits of a Social Security number as voters elsewhere.
If we cannot have integrity in our electoral process, it is impossible to believe we can attain good governance and have the confidence of the electorate. Basically, we will cease to be a Republic and devolve into a something that is a shell of our former selves. We will no longer have a government by the consent of the governed but will be ruled by charlatans and usurpers elevated by a system of corruption. This is the result of community organizing and line-by-line adoption of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.
North Carolina’s state election board’s executive director, Kim Westbrook Strach, told lawmakers that 81 deceased North Carolinians apparently voted in 2012 as well. While some appear to have submitted absentee ballots prior to their death, she said “there are between 40 and 50 who had died at a time (when) that’s not possible.”
Those who believe requiring photo identification for voting is racist are trying to stoke the fires of enmity — but also forget the inconvenient truth that it was indeed the Democrat party who developed the system of poll taxes and literacy tests to disenfranchise blacks. As well, it was the Democrat party who started the KKK as a means of voter intimidation. Democrats historically have been the experts in nefarious actions to influence the integrity of our election process — and so it continues into the 21st century.
Here is my recommendation for national level elections. That day in November becomes a national holiday. Polls should open up at 7am and close at 9pm, which allows 14 hours for Americans to get to polls and vote. There should be no rush to tally results, and we should ensure Americans are afforded opportunity to vote. We need to eliminate early voting which is inconsistent across the country, and the source of much corrupt and scurrilous practices. Absentee ballots should be allowed, but should not begin any earlier than 30 days out from the national election day. We should have picture ID for verification on national election day and a detailed certification system for absentee voting.
We need to solve this issue and immediately states must scrub their voting databases. We were challenged by Benjamin Franklin to keep this Republic, but this challenge has become monumental.
