Voter Fraud and the President

Updated on April 16, 2014

A Fraud is a Fraud is a Fraud

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Wednesday, April 16, 2014. Our friend from the insect world, Chiquita Cicada, is here with me at the breakfast table. She attended Al Sharpton's National Action Network conference. Her purpose in being there was quite transparent. As she explains it, she wanted to buzz around Sharpton and disrupt the meeting. As it turns out, President Obama was in attendance and Chiquita was shocked to hear the President declare that the very idea of voter fraud was fraudulent in and of itself. Chiquita has prepared breakfast tacos for us this morning. Please join us for a spirited discussion about voter fraud. I'll be serving spicy hot Bloody Marys.


Dear Friends....

Say What!

President Obama stepped up to the podium and told the audience that "the real voter fraud comes from people who try to deny our rights." Considering that the audience was totally receptive to the idea, his speech went off quite well. To prove his contention that voter fraud is a figment of the GOP's imagination he referred to a 2006 DOJ analysis that showed that out of 197,000,000 votes cast for federal elections between 2002 and 2005, only 40 voters were indicted for fraud. He told the rapt audience that claims about voter fraud were bogus!

Congress Up for Grabs...

Clearly, President Obama and the Democrats are worried about the upcoming elections. If voters actually have to prove who they are and vote once and once only, the votes may not be enough to keep the Senate. If the Democrats lose seats, President Obama wants the nation to believe it was because decent, law abiding citizens couldn't gain access to the voting booths because they couldn't prove they were decent, law abiding citizens! In a desperate effort to "get out the vote" President Obama has decided to go after the GOP and anyone else who wants to keep our elections honest. I know I am just a bug, after all, but even in my world I have to produce an I.D. to vote in Cicada elections. It is common sense to keep the vote true. Providing I.D. is not a problem and if it is, it can be easily rectified. Instead of getting out the vote by driving people to voting places and encouraging them to vote more than once, how about helping to get them I.D.'s? If it's too much trouble for people to prove who they are, they forfeit the vote.

Come On In!

Fraud is Fake?

Before President Obama addressed the convention, perhaps it would have been prudent to make sure there were no current articles around about voter fraud. Alas, he did not do his due diligence, because the North Carolina Board of Elections released disturbing figures to the North Carolina Joint Legislative Oversight Committee. Voter registration files were compared with data from other states. What a surprise, 35,740 voters who cast a ballot in the 2012 general election in North Carolina had exact matches on their first names, last names and dates of birth with voters voting in at least one other state! Now that's what I call a major coincidence. During the President's speech he told the dumbstruck crowd that only 40 voters were indicted for fraud between 2002 and 2005. Indictments indicate that a fraudulent voter was caught, which is not an indication of how many people are committing the crime. But you knew that, didn't you? Perhaps someone could explain that to President Obama.

Even one instance of voter fraud is unacceptable. To suggest that it doesn't exist is ridiculous, because clearly it does. It must be stopped. The answer is ridiculously simple. Protect the vote by asking for the same I.D. you ask of someone going into a bank to withdraw their own money! Stop playing games, Democrats. The vote is precious and it must be safeguarded at all costs.


Chiquita's Song


I'm Chiquita Cicada

And I'm here to say

I wish your President would just go away!!!

      Dear Mike, Of course, I agree. It is 1024 and we are still debating the necessity for voter I.D. This is the essence of insanity. See you at the Inn.

      I can't even imagine one valid excuse for not requiring a voter ID card. The strenuous objection to this would indicate direct knowledge of illegal voting and not wanting that to end. I seriously doubt there are many legal voters in this country who do not have at least on piece of ID that would be accepted for the voter ID card. Those few who don't could receive free assistance in obtaining the proper ID if they are in this country legally and still among the living.

      I think the amount of voter fraud is well beyond what the average person believes. A voter register card with a picture would certainly cut down on the amount of fraud, but I don't think it would completely stop the probloem. It is rediculous tohave to show identification for a drivers's licens, a car tag, to cash a check, to buy a narcotic that is prescribed by your doctor but not hold boting to the same standard. Excellent hub and I can only hope so many Republicans get voted into office that they will have the power to require an appropriate voter card.

      The Democrats claim that requiring proper ID would cut down on the number of votes. Well, duh!

      BTW, there is life after death, and they all vote for Democrats.

      Good Morning lambservant,

      Clearly, the Dems love voters who vote early and often. In this humble bug's opinion anyone who is against voter I.D. wants the fraud to go on and on an on....The entire argument against calling for I.D. is insane, stupid and fraudulent! See you at the Inn. Let's show the bartender our I.D.

      I've heard it reported you can't get into Harry Reid's office without two forms of picture I.D. Is this a case of the five-star chef not following the recipe he wrote?

      Cicada you are a very insightful bug. The company one keeps is very indicative of where ones allegiance lie and their character. Al Sharpton?

      35,000 people with the same name and birthday? Obama is going to look like a fool. He ought to do his homework before he speaks on an issue. any idea Cicada, who these 35,000 peeps voted for? Willing to bet none other than Barack Obummer and the dems that are so loyal to his agenda and tactics. Even if not, something should be done about this travesty. Nice piece as always BP.

      The FRAUD is in the White House! Besides that FRAUD, there are two other FRAUDSTERS, AL and HOLDER. However, the LIEberal sheeple simply refuse to acknowledge this. They believe that all is so dandy. They simply love the "new and improved" America with its freebies and anti-success ideology. So sad indeed!

      There are still loads of people who are willing to believe anything this man says, especially the people who are too tired to work! Obama is their savior. He encourages them to use food stamps and hang out all day with thekids on the block. Life is good! See you at the Inn.

      Yeah it's so fraudulent that there's a woman doing time in Ohio for voting for Obama 6 times. Anyone that listens to Obama's lies anymore is a certifiable loon like he is. 47 of the 50 states (I know Obama thinks there are 57) have voter fraud problems on the books. Good grief and people continue to believe this pathological fraud?

      Pop and Chiquita,

      I think that both our President and his Attorney General should have checked the latest research on "Pot smoking and Brain changes " before fessing up and advocating pot legalization. The "Brain on Drugs" is not a pretty thing and the thought process is adversely effected. This shows clearly in the case of Obama's stance on voter fraud.

      Patti, the value of the vote would depend entirely with your current income. That would be controlled by the department of "Income Redistribution." It sounds complicated but most of these programs are already in place.

      Good Morning carol,

      Tonight, if the bartender asks someone for I.D. should we call a Democrat? For the once greatest nation in the world, we have it all wrong. Our vote is precious and we treat it like garbage. See you later.

    • profile image

      Old Poolman 3 years ago

      Patti, with that in mind we might as well make vote selling an official government program. They could create a whole new government agency to administer the vote sales, or just roll it under the highly efficient IRS agency. This would create thousands of new jobs for the agency as the folks hired to administer Obamacare are just way to busy now that millions of people have signed up.

      The possibilities are just unlimited and then everyone would know for sure that votes are being sold. I see "Vote Sales" as the perfect followup program to the highly successful "Obamacare."

      Some days we just have to think positive to maintain our sanity.

      Dear Mike,

      I think people are already selling their votes. Think about it. People who are accustomed to getting something for nothing want to keep up their winning streak. Along comes someone like Obama who rewards them for their lack of ambition. In exchange the takers vote to keep the good times rolling. I wouldn't be surprised if people are getting paid to vote. I imagine it would be one price for one vote with escalating rewards for every additional vote. The Dems are extremely anxious to hold onto their base, the idle, greedy, do-nothing folks who just love the status quo. It's a win-win for all participants. So what if our nation goes down the drain. That's a small price to pay for the good life.

      I wonder how many countries in the world allow citizens to vote without ID? One country requires dipping a finger in ink that won't wash off when they cast their vote.

      Yet in this country we don't find ID necessary proof for something as valuable as a persons vote? Other than for purposes of outright voter fraud why would anyone object to ID requirements?

      To my knowledge, it requires ID to get food stamps and other entitlements. Those who protest voter ID requirements have no problem with this.

      With the huge amounts of money being raised and spent on election campaigns, perhaps we should consider just selling our votes. We could advertise for free on Craigslist and just sell our vote to the highest bidder. I doubt our political system would get any worse if we used vote selling and could even reduce the needs for food stamps. Every home could have at least one big-screen TV allowing them to watch all the fairy tales presented by the political candidates.

      The possibilities and advantages of vote selling are unlimited and could be folded right in to the current income redistribution programs. The higher your income, the less money you would receive for your vote. Vote selling could possibly even replace many of the current "entitlement" programs.

      But then some would want the money without actually having to leave the couch and going to the polls to vote, so I guess nothing would really change. And the vote buyers would want some form of ID from those who's vote they are buying, so this program would be dead before it even started.

      Good Morning Mike,

      This problem drives me crazy. Those who argue against requiring voter I.D. are counting on people voting many times. They are complicit in the fraud and should be prosecuted. I can't understand why this is even an issue! If you refuse to identify yourself...give up your vote. See you at the Inn....

      Old Poolman 3 years ago

      Very few things these days don't require some form of ID to complete the transaction. In fact, some require two forms of ID.

      Try boarding a commercial flight without ID and I guarantee you will not get off the ground.

      Try getting a drivers licence without ID and you will be riding a bus or walking.

      Those who object so adamantly to voter ID are fully aware of the voter fraud and don't want it stopped. They depend on voter fraud to keep their people in office.

      Good Morning Pino,

      I was thinking that if we move to Costa Rica, we will be far more relaxed. We don't speak the language so we will have no interest or knowledge of the news. Sounds perfect to me! Back to the hub. The fact that the President of the United States would have anything to do with the likes of Al Sharpton says it all!!!! See you at the Inn on the early side. I will be arriving by dogsled because winter is back!

      POP: How ironic that the president speaks at the NAN with Al Sharpton owing 1.9 million in tax dollars. To make it worse, when you go to a doctor under the ACA, you have to show ID!!!!! It is a requirement to get the care you need. that says it all.

      Off to the bar. Chiquita, we need to have a talk....
