A Hill To Die On

Senator Mike Lee of Utah (my senator) has spent the last few weeks trying to gather support for his idea of de-funding obamacare. His plan is deceptively simple. Have the house pass a funding bill that pays for everything but obamacare. This bill will then be sent to the senate for its “consideration.” The theory is that the healthcare law is so wildly unpopular that the democrats in the senate will not have the political stomach to vote for it once more. Perhaps.

I am a long time observer of the militant liberal democratic politician. I can assure you that there will be no defections of democrat senators when the house bill is sent over. Any senator who even contemplates such a desertion will have pressure put upon him by the democratic party and their subservient media that will make the pressures at the bottom of the sea look like a comparative walk in the park. While liberals like to scream about conservatives voting in lockstep it is an undeniable historical fact that it is the liberals who vote en mass. This occasion will be no different.

Upon receiving the bill from the house the senate democrats, having the majority, will simply reinstate the obamacare funding and pass the bill back to the house. The house then could re-pass the bill and send it back to a senate that would then repeat itself. This circus would continue only as long as the republicans could stand the heat being dished out by the president and his media. You know, starving old people and denying seniors their social security etc to make the rich richer. Under current republican leadership, especially in the senate, the republicans would instantly cave under the manufactured media pressure. This would give the democrats two victories for the price of one.

The first victory would be a policy one. The reprehensible obamacare would be funded and once funded, will be virtually impossible to repeal. The second victory would be political. For the next ten years all we would hear about from the democrats and their media allies is how they courageously defeated the evil republicans, saving mankind in the process. We have seen this show before. How the republicans, when faced with “the will of the people”, even though there were no people, saw the light and caved.

I am a reluctant proponent of Mike Lee’s plan. Not because I am unsure of the plan, but because I know just how weak our so-called leadership is. Even when faced with overwhelming support their most important consideration is “but what will they think of us? What if they start calling us names?”

I have news for you in the leadership. They have been calling us names for as long as I can remember and, like the schoolyard bullies they are, will continue to do so as long as it gets them the results they seek. I suspect that even if the plan fails in its political objective there will be an energizing effect on the conservative base that could end up moving mountains.

Mike Lee’s plan may or may not work. I think it is about time though that our so-called leadership finally stood for something that we conservatives actually believe in. It is time they acted like the adults we thought they were when we elected them. If Mike Lee’s plan should fail, then we take our lumps and continue to move forward. However, if my party had to pick a hill to die on this is as good as it gets.

Yes Virginia There is Plenty of Vote Fraud

There is an interesting map that shows by county just how Americans voted. It shows counties that voted republican in red and democrat in blue. There is virtually no blue on the map yet little Barry somehow “won” re-election.

Democrats and their lackeys in the media regularly and with great disdain deride those of us who seek to inquire about voter fraud. We are called racists, tea-baggers, birthers and religious loons. I won’t repeat the more colorful adjectives.

Knowing liberals the way I do it is clear to me that the more they scream, the closer to the truth you are getting. The intensity of the hate filled speech they level at those of us who criticize them is always a good indication of just how correct we conservatives are.

In the arena of voter fraud the democrats have a long and storied history. For this article I will limit myself to the alleged fraud in just this presidential election. Consider the following.

In September, the Columbus Dispatch in Ohio ran the following: “More than one out of every five registered Ohio voters is probably ineligible to vote. In two counties, the number of registered voters actually exceeds the voting-age population: Northwestern Ohio’s Wood County shows 109 registered voters for every 100 eligible, while in Lawrence County along the Ohio River it’s a mere 104 registered per 100 eligible. Another 31 counties show registrations at more than 90 percent of those eligible, a rate regarded as unrealistic by most voting experts. The national average is a little more than 70 percent. In a close presidential election where every vote might count, which ones to count might become paramount on Election Day – and in possible legal battles afterward.”

Ohio’s chief elections official, Secretary of State Jon Husted, asked U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for a personal meeting to discuss how to balance seemingly conflicting federal laws so he could pare Ohio’s dirty voter list without removing truly eligible voters. Holder’s office never even bothered to reply to Husted. That tells me voter fraud is an important tactic in the re-election strategy of little Barry. Need further evidence, look how Ohio voted.

Then there is Lessadolla Sowers, a member of the Tunica County NAACP Executive Committee. She was convicted and sentenced to five-years each for ten counts of voter fraud involving absentee ballots in April, 2012. The sentencing judge said these were crimes that cut “against the fabric of our free society.” Clearly Sowers was just upholding groups like the NAACP and ACORN’s long history of just such shenanigans.

ACORN alone had at least 54 people employed by or directly associated with the group convicted of voter fraud. I bet you didn’t know that.

Then there is the fact that thousands of military absentee ballots were not counted at all and many thousands more were never delivered to our servicemen. As a veteran this not only outrages me but should outrage you as well.

Finally, consider these headlines:
“In Florida: Obama Got Over 99% in Broward County Precincts”
“What Luck! Obama Won Dozens of Cleveland Districts with 100% of the Vote”
“Good News: Obama Won County in Ohio with 108% Voter Registration”
“BREAKING: St. Lucie County, Florida Had 141.1% Turnout; Obama Won County”
“Fraud in PA: Obama Got Over 99% of Vote at Polls Where GOP Inspectors Were Removed; Turnout Somehow ’30%’ Above Gov’t Numbers”
“Out of 175,554 registered voters, 247,713 vote cards were cast in St. Lucie County, Florida, on Tuesday”

Sadly this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Vote fraud is clearly an integral part of the democrat/liberal election strategy and it is time we conservatives stopped pretending it isn’t.
