HillBuzz has a story. It’s an important story that needs to get out as quickly as possible, so I’m quoting large chunks of it here. If you’re a Chicago Republican, this is the year you might make a difference:
Folks, there’s a big story here that needs to make national news and I need YOUR help in breaking it wide open.
This could actually end up being the biggest story of the 2012 elections…but it’s hard to get conservative writers to focus on anything in Illinois, since the past incompetence of the GOP in our state has made it something of a laughingstock nationally.
One woman — a mom from the suburbs of Chicago — took it upon herself to mount a crusade against voter fraud here in Illinois and she is close to shutting down at least two major avenues of fraud that Democrats have relied on for DECADES in Chicagoland. She’s been threatened, bullied, maligned, and stonewalled…and that’s just by the cocktail-party-Republicans here who are still in the mindset of “let’s not upset the apple cart”. Democrats hate this woman because systematically she’s gone after one avenue of voter fraud after another, removing layers of fraud that Democrats have built into Illinois elections since the first Mayor Daley was magically finding boxes of votes to give John F. Kennedy the edge in 1960.
Her name is Sharon Meroni and she needs your help today.
It’s down to the wire and Sharon still needs 500 Republican election judges in Cook County…and she needs them by this coming Thursday. If she doesn’t find 500 more judges, then Democrats will get to fill those positions…just like they have in previous elections. Democrats use those slots as patronage pay-offs and also enjoy having complete control of polling places…which is how the dead are allowed to vote in many cases or how, mysteriously, people who didn’t actually show up to vote end up voting anyway if Democrats need them to in tight elections. Without a Republican judge in a polling place to prevent this from happening, fraud is institutionalized in Cook County elections.
The task of filling these election judge slots has been so monumental that it’s no wonder the GOP in Illinois has never even tried before…but Sharon Meroni is close to succeeding. She is a living, breathing American hero and something close to a wonder woman for getting this close…but she is still 500 judges away from meeting her goal.
How you can help:
Please contact every conservative writer you can think of by email or fax today. Let’s start making a list in this thread, and start putting the contact numbers down so others can write these people too. We need to send out an S.O.S. to every big name out there and ask him or her to help Sharon get the 500 judges she needs. In the past, this would have been a moment where I could call up Andrew Breitbart and ask him to help and he would have blasted his network and ultimately delivered the volunteers. With Andrew gone, though, I don’t know anyone who’s filling that niche when action is needed.
Here is what Sharon needs:
* 500 people who live in Cook County who voted Republican in the past (which means they are registered as Republicans in Illinois, because party registration is determined by which ballot you pull in the primaries)
* Get the word out that these 500 people need to go to www.ElectionJudges.us to apply to be election judges in Cook County
* Election judging requires being on site at a polling place for the entirety of November 6th, 2012. This might mean taking a sick day to do this…but you will be compensated $170/day for doing this.
* People who have questions about whether they would qualify need to call: 312-242-1818
No comment from me. You all know what I’m thinking:
Starting Wednesday, Californians can register to vote online, a change implemented just in time for the November presidential election.
Made possible by a 2011 bill authored by Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, the online system will allow people whose signature is already on file with the state Department of Motor Vehicles to transfer their voter registration form electronically to county elections officials from the secretary of state’s website. Since 2009, voters have been able to access a voter registration form online, but until now, they had to print it out and mail it in.
For the November election, Californians have until Oct. 22 to register.
Okay, I’ll add just one thing: The Progressive California legislature just approved driver’s licenses for illegal aliens.
That’s all folks.
One of the things the last few elections has revealed is escalating voter fraud in America, fraud of the type that aligns us more closely with a banana republic than with a traditional Western nation. Thus, we know that groups such as ACORN have registered thousands of non-existent people. And because America has traditionally had an honor system at the ballot box (“If you say you’re Minnie Mouse, than I guess you’re Minnie Mouse. Please, go vote.”), little has been done to stem the impact at the ballot of those fraudulently registered voters.
There is now a ballot initiative circulating in California that officially concedes that the honor system no longer works. It will require all California voters to show photo ID at the polling place, and it mandates steps to protect against voter fraud in absentee ballots too. Lastly, as a little extra benefit, it allows an extra 15 days for votes sent in by overseas troops. In other words, the whole ballot is meant to slow down fraud and allow every vote to be counted.
I only heard about this ballot initiative today, but I can assure you that the Democrats will hate it. They’ll waffle on about the fact that poor people just can’t manage to obtain government ID, making this an impossible hurdle between themselves and democratic participation. That this argument is demeaning is obvious. It also makes no sense when one considers that these same people are able to handle the system with some level of skill when it comes to collecting government benefits. (And I speak with solid second hand knowledge about this, since someone close to me lives at that level, as do her friends. Whacked out on perpetual 60s head trips they may be, but they know how to get their welfare checks and food stamps.)
If you are a California voter who is interested in making this initiative a reality on California’s ballot, go here, print-up the petition you’ll see, sign it, and mail it to
925 University Avenue
Sacramento, CA 95825
A couple more things: First, time is of the essence, since all petitions must be received 131 days before the election. Second, each petition is written so that two people from the same county can sign it. Of those two (or even if there is only one signatory), though, one must not only sign it, but also fill out the “circulator” declaration.
I’m getting emails from committed conservatives who are unhappy right now, feeling that the air has gone out of the election balloon. I’m looking at things a different way.
The ACORN registration fraud has inflated the numbers of registered Democrats. Given that some people registered as Dems 72 times, there is no way that ACORN can get 72 fraudulent voters to the booths. And that’s just one person. This means that the huge threat they hold over us — that is, the threat of swollen Dem voter rolls — actually isn’t as big a threat as we thought, and that’s true despite inevitable fraud at the voting booth.
One of the volunteer “get out the voters” in Marin sent out an email with an interesting heading: “John McCain and Sarah Palin will win California . . . if every McCain/Palin supporter actually votes.” I wrote to her to ask if that was really true,or just blind optimism. Here’s what she wrote back (just yesterday):
It’s optimistic today (the numbers have changed again!) — but yesterday it was fact-based. Or google “forbes zogby poll obama”.
I was, I think, a little creative in saying that we will win California if… BUT I believe that it’s true. There are so many Obama supporters in Marin and other Democratic strongholds that, by and large, I believe that because they feel less threatened they therefore feel less urgency to vote. Such a small number of people actually vote, you know.
I am absolutely certain that if every Republican who moans about the possibility of an Obama presidency actually votes AND gets other McCain supporters to cast their votes, we would take this state. It’s not about who loves you, baby, it’s about who’s actually going to make the time to vote for you.
This gal is right. If Dems are not going to get out as many voters as they’ve pretended they have, and if we can get out all the voters we really have, we can make a difference.
Also, just as they’re trying to depress our vote with all this “landslide” talk, they may also depress their own. After all, for busy, scattered, chaotic people (and there are those on both sides of the political aisle), voting can be a pain. If you’re sure that you’re candidate is going to win by a landslide regardless, isn’t that an invitation for you to stay home. After all, how much can your vote matter? We, on the other hand, know our votes matter, and we’re going to get out there and do something.
