Posted on 09/06/12 at 12:07 pm in response to Minnesota voting amendment would change much more than you might think

Dem. Convention Chair Mayor Villaraigosa showed how the outcome a "Democratic" vote is already decided by party bosses. He had to try three times by voice vote from the delegates in an attempt to get a two-thirds majority to amend the Democratic Platform. The God and Jerusalem language needed a two-thirds majority, but only got a 50-50 split of support versus no support. Not to worry Chairman Villaraigosa said it passed.......that's how they roll.

You're exactly right, it was only a rules change that less than 200 Ron Paul delegates objected to. What happened at the Democratic Convention was an example of outrageous vote fraud, pretending they had two-thirds of the delegates votes, when all could hear it was a 50-50 split.

The Democratic big city machines steal elections, like when Chicago Mayor Richard Daley stole the 1960 election for JFK, it's the Chicago way.

Don't be naive and pretend the Franken election was...

You have pointed out the problem with big city machine politics. You were one of the observers not affiliated with either party? The so-called independents and Republican election judges are in short supply in Minneapolis/St. Paul and other major urban cities.

Are the facts and figures wrong in the WSJ "opinion" piece? Cite it. Oh, and don't use any discredited, rabid liberal site funded by Soros, like the Huffington Post, please.

"Felons or noncitizens sometimes register to vote or cast votes because they are confused about their eligibility. The database shows 74 cases of felons voting and 56 cases of noncitizens voting."

Some contrary information on felons voting:

Allegations of fraud, they say, are little more than pretexts conjured up by Republicans to justify voter ID laws designed to suppress Democratic turnout.

That argument becomes much harder to make after reading a discussion of the...

I didn't say voter ID would stop felons from voting. I am pointing out a direct quote from the News21 kids article that nationwide there were only 74 cases of felons voting since 2000.

Skeptics of voter fraud should read a new book "Who's Counting? How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats put your vote at risk", by John Fund and Hans von Spakovsky, (former Federal Elections Commissioner and past Justice Dept. official). They found at least 177 cases of felons voting, just in Minnesota, in...

Please cite the actual number of felons convicted of voting, if 177 is not accurate.

No matter how you cut it, Bush won, it was close, but he won. That's why he was in the White House for eight years.

You Democrats really have to get beyond the politics of race and division. Last time I checked Obama was black when he was elected by the largest number of votes in a presidential election in American history, with 52.9% of the vote.

I didn't support Bill Cllinton's policies, or his behavior, was this due to racism?

Maybe the real explanation for not wanting felons to vote, is that it is against the law. Felons should not be allowed to vote for Democrats or Republicans.

Ms. Berg,

Can you conceive of two, separate conversations going on at the same time? I already explained to you that voter ID will not stop felons from voting.

The progressive politicians don't know that individuals' money is not theirs. The purpose of the Federal Government is to protect the people's private property rights and their freedom. The role of the Federal Government is not that of a nanny. Providing needed social services is a state responsibility.
