Jim Turner, a Democrat Party supporter from North Carolina, boasted on his Facebook page that he was voting FIVE times in the presidential election. He had already voted four times using postal votes and was going to vote in person as well.
"I have voted once in Beaufort, once in Henderson, twice in Emerald Isle and will vote again in my precinct, in PKS, I will do whatever it takes to save our country from the world envisioned by Mitt and his fear mongering followers. I do not want my granddaughter to have to re-fight the battles won by women 40 years ago or to make less than my grandson for performing the same work he does. This election is not about taxing the wealthy. It is about the American spirit and caring for our fellow man. Let's continue to move forward, not slip in the dark past."
By moving forward, he means into a world ruled by fraud, dishonesty and cheating in public life. One man, one vote is now "the dark past". His granddaughter will be happy to live in a country where her likelihood of getting a job at all is far less than it was in her grandmother's time and he regards that as a triumph!
There can be no doubt that the massive - and highly sophisticated - campaign of electoral fraud run by the Democrats in this and the last USA presidential elections made a difference. An American friend tells me that Obama won in all the states that do not require you to show proof of identity before voting. Not in the others. Curious coincidence, that.
The other decisive factor was that nine million Americans who wanted to vote Republican would not vote for a Mormon. An online survey taken weeks before the election revealed that for a large percentage of Christians this was a major issue. Result? America remains in the hands of an incompetent President, a windbag who can't succeed in either war or peace.
Unemployed, homeless people queuing up for food hand-outs in emergency welfare stations did not vote for Barack Obama to get a second term. It was the middle-class, the class obsessed with political correctness, that voted for Obama. To the middle class, those who still have jobs at all in their sinking economy, sex and sex-related issues were paramount. They ignored the fact that America's national deficit is now even greater than when Obama came to power. The USA owes even more trillions of dollars now to China than it did in 2008, and both of Jim Turner's grand-children will have to spend their lives paying that back. Yet all he cares about is whether his grand-daughter will, if she gets accidentally pregnant, and wants an abortion, be required to pay the $150 herself. $150 seem to count more with him than FIVE TRILLION.
Mr Turner thinks that Mitt Romney's followers are "fear-mongering" does he? So who invented the massacre of the US embassy staff in Libya? Was the murder of Christopher Stevens a fiction? Perhaps Mr Turner is one of those folk who give credence to the 9/11 conspiracy theory - the idea that it was all staged by the Bush government to give them an excuse for a grievous war in Afghanistan etc etc You know the sort of thing. If all this is fear mongering, why exactly is President Obama carrying on his drone-attacks on Taliban targets within Pakistan? Why did he bother to get Osama bin-Laden tidied out of the way?
I'm not expecting Mr Turner and his likes to feel any concern whatever about the persecution of Christians in Pakistan and in those places affected by what is laughably called the Arab Spring. An Anglican church and school in Mardan, Peshawar, have just been burnt down by rampaging Muslims who deliberately burnt all the bibles they could find and desecrated the premises:-
They seem to have forgotten that in the recent floods, the diocese of Mardan provided free emergency help for all the victims, who were mainly Muslim. Wilson Chowdhry of the BPCA said in the news release, “No Christian in Pakistan is safe. Any community whether in a city or in a more rural location can at any time become the target of similar aggression. Please pray for all Christian brothers and sisters in Pakistan.”
Last month, Islamic gunmen attacked the Catholic cathedral in Hyderabad, murdering 28 people:-
Democrats are not in the least worried about such signs, as that would be "fear-mongering". But when they use blatantly illegal tactics such as plastering polling stations with gigantic murals depicting Obama, his campaign slogans and a long list of his promises, they are only revealing the utter contempt Democrats have for "Democracy" itself.
I read a curious story on Mike Huckabee's blog some time ago. It said that way back in the early 1990s, a group of 18 people who had been denied mortgages by one of the biggest lending companies in America brought a court case saying they were being discriminated against. Many of them were black and some were single parents. They won their case, the companies were all legally compelled to give mortgages to high-risk applicants and this led to the sub-prime disaster that led to the banking crisis... The group that organized the case was ACORN and the lawyer who handled it was called Barack Obama. Where or not you believe that is up to you, but it has certainly been on the internet for a long time without any one bringing a libel case.
What is certain is that Obama's wonderful new health care scheme will cost a huge number of people their jobs and it is singularly ill-timed when unemployment is already soaring. The Stryker Corporation, a medical appliance firm whose owner gave massive donations to Obama's campaign, is now closing a plant in Orchard Park New York, and sacking 96 workers because it cannot afford the costs of Obamacare. Thousands of small companies will be driven out of business and medium sized ones will be put under strain to cope with the cost and the paperwork.
Since Obama's re-election the Dow-Jones has dropped steeply and Americans will have plenty of reasons to regret the outcome.
