Vote Early; Vote Often

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has signed a bill into law that requires voters to produce photo identification in order to participate in the election process.  ACORN, professional victim groups, illegal aliens, government unions, and the rest of the Theftocrats' permanent entitlement constituencies are beside themselves.  They are convinced that it is their birthright to steal elections.  How dare the rest of us demand honesty of them!

Making sure we have legislation that protects the integrity for an open, fair and honest election in every single case is important, said Walker.  The chronically bereaved responded by chanting, Recall Walker!  Wisconsin is now the 11th state to have approved requiring some form of photo ID at the polls.

Open, fair, and honest runs counter to the dictates of progressives' amorality.  They believe that they should be exempt from enduring any unwanted consequences that might result from their actions because lying, cheating, and stealing are essential to achieving their holy goals.

The Wall Street Journal's John Fund has these observations.  Coercion and chicanery are made much easier by the excessive use of absentee ballots.  Most of the elections thrown out by courts—Miami, Florida's mayoral election in 1998, the East Chicago, Indiana's mayor's race in 2005—involved fraudulent absentee votes.  Three decades ago, absentee and early ballots were only 5% of all votes cast nationwide.  In 2008, they exceeded 25%.

In the 2004 presidential election, Milwaukee election officials reported that some 5,000 more ballots were credited than were recorded as having been cast.  Additionally, more than 1300 votes cast by people who registered to vote on the day of the election--this invitation to fraud should be eliminated--were declared invalid.  The Milwaukee Police Department, a government union operation, had a plan for the 2008 national election.  The police department's Special Investigative Unit was ordered by superiors not to send anyone to polling places on Election Day.  What a shock.

Election laws should be clear, simple, applied equally, and balance ease of voting with the need for ballot integrity.  A unanimous Supreme Court warned about the danger of loose election laws when it vacated a Ninth Circuit opinion, which had enjoined the use of Arizona's new voter ID law on the grounds it would disenfranchise voters.

The court made the obvious point that "disenfranchisement" is a two-way street.  Fraud, it noted in Gonzales v. Arizona (2006), "drives honest citizens out of the democratic process. . . . [V]oters who fear their legitimate votes will be outweighed by fraudulent ones will feel disenfranchised."

For Corruptocrats, election theft is merely part of their overall plan for the theft-welfare state.  They invented the mommy state to reflect their belief that they have discovered the way, the truth, and the light.  These delusions drive them to force everyone to live as they dictate; these dictates are unilaterally beneficial to themselves.  Theirs is not a society of taboos, boundaries that we are forbidden to cross.  Their utopia is one of enforced totems, or mandatory kow towing to the omniscient, omnipresent, and oppressive state deity.

May your gods be with you.
