ELDER PATRIOT – The other day I sat down with an accomplished black man and discussed the state of our inner city communities. I opined that it just didn’t make sense given Blacks’ demonstrated inclination to resist what they viewed as oppression that they would continue to vote in such overwhelming percentages for Democrat leaders who have failed to deliver anything but poverty and crime for them for the past half century. He said they didn’t.
I asked him whether he was claiming that the voting machines in these communities were rigged. He smiled and responded that “of course” they were.
That’s a hell of an accusation and, if true, it would certainly go along way to destroying the Left-Right paradigm. So it got me to thinking.
During the last election voting machines in more than one-third of all Detroit’s precincts – 248 of the city’s 662 precincts, or 37 percent – tabulated more ballots than the entire number of voters tallied by workers in the poll books.
In 2012, 4 precincts in Fulton County Georgia also surpassed 100% turnout including one with a 154% and another with a whopping 3300% turnout.
Also in 2012, St. Lucie County, Florida had 141.1% turnout when out of 175,554 registered voters, 247,713 vote cards were cast.
It appears Democrats were leaving nothing to chance in 2012, when in 59 Philadelphia voting divisions, Mitt Romney got zero votes.
There are two things these districts all have in common – they’re predominantly black and they consistently report vote totals that are almost 100% for Democrats.
President Trump who knows just how difficult it is to break that “Blue Wall” is concerned that in a close election such as the one that George Bush won in 2000, voter fraud and election tampering will result in an illegitimate winner.
The fact that Russia purportedly pierced the voter rolls of at least seven states raises further concerns as to the integrity of our current system.
That it happened under Obama’s watch – who personally benefitted from voting “irregularities” in 2012 as Democrats have for many decades – is worthy of at least some skepticism.
Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity is a welcomed step forward in trying to restore the one man-one vote principle that undergirds a true representative republic.
It’s time that Democrats are forced to win in the arena of ideas and not through judicial maneuvering, black box vote tampering, voter fraud, or through the help of dead people.
The greatest beneficiaries of a clean voting system will be Americans in our most distressed communities who are being deprived of their right to self-determination.
