At times Republicans are wimps!
Lately it seems that they are wimps all the time.
ACORN has been around for twenty years. Democrats in Congress have attached earmarks to appropriation bills for years giving ACORN millions of tax dollars to conduct its campaign to subvert our elections and ensure the election of Democrats to public office.
Republican members of Congress have permitted this. Now it would seem that the Democrats are about to hit the jackpot. All the millions of tax dollars that they have given to ACORN over the years will probably produce enough fraudulent votes for Barack Hussein Obama in the swing-states to guarantee his election. Not enough has been said and written about the $800,000 dollars Barach Hussein Obama has allocated from his campaign funds for ACORN.
At first his campaign said that those funds were for ACORN to design and build the stage setttings for his rallies; now they finally admit that the funds were given for 'voter' registration,
which is a euphemism for 'voter buying.'
In the years between 2000 and 2006, when the Republicans controlled both houses of Congress and the White House they should have rammed through the Congress a bill MANDATING voter identification by the use of photo identification both at the time of voter registration and the casting of ballots IN ALL ELECTIONS FOR FEDERAL OFFICES.
Now, with the probablity of Democrats controlling both houses of Congress and also the White House it will be impossible for the passage of such a bill before 2012, it ever, because the election system will have been so corrupted this year that it will take a long time to reform it.
Mark Steyn had some interesting observations on this subject yesterday on National Review Online's CORNER:
"Senator Obama famously shrugged off William Ayers as just a guy in his neighborhood.
In a way, that's right.
The Ayers/Obama connection isn't about the Senator's social life, it's about where he lives, politically speaking. Ayers' Weather Underground grew out of "Students For A Democratic Society", as did ACORN. Today, Ayers and his fellow "educators" are engaged with considerable success in radicalizing the next generation of Americans. But, if that doesn't work, Acorn has a fallback strategy.
What does ACORN do? It steals elections:
In Lake County, Indiana, ACORN turned in 5,000 new registrations. The authorities there started reviewing them, and quit after they found that the first 2,100 were all fraudulent. The mind boggles: ACORN turns in thousands of new registrations, and not a single one represents a legitimate voter.
Who does ACORN steals elections for? Ah, well, that's a little harder to figure out from the CNN report. But the Obama campaign gave 800 grand from its many illegal foreign contributions to ACORN.
There is something ridiculous about this country's approach to elections. If a Swedish businessman flies in for a one-day meeting in New York, he'll undergo a retinal scan at JFK. But, if that same businessman decides to stay on a day or two, he can wander into half the polling stations in America and cast an illegal vote more or less with impunity. We have retinal scans at the airport because it's a national security issue, but in elections it's "racist" or "discriminatory" to require a driver's license, passport or even proof of corporeal existence. The integrity of the ballot box is, ultimately, also a national security issue. ACORN has now registered approaching one and a half million "voters", not in Utah or in Massachusetts, but in those key states where this election will be decided. They have more than enough to change the result.
As I said to my pal Alan Colmes on Fox last night, unlike us poor chumps on the other side, the Dems have a glamorous charismatic candidate who, according to the polls, is on course to win. Why do they need ACORN to steal it?"
