Was the 2012 Election Stolen?
American Thinker ^ | 11/13/2012 | Selwyn Duke

Posted on 11/13/2012 6:42:05 AM PST by SeekAndFind

As the 2012 election approached, conservative enthusiasm grew. Mitt Romney was drawing huge crowds while Barack Obama spoke in half-filled stadiums. All the passion lay on the right while the left was discouraged with a promised messiah who proved merely a politician. And the prediction was that, in contrast to 2008, Republican turnout would dwarf the tuned-out and carry the day.

Hence the shock November 6 eve. How could Romney lose, especially by such a wide electoral margin? Maybe he didn't. At least not legitimately.

When I predicted Obama's re-election, I stated that, despite our country's inexorable leftist slide, Romney would still win on Election Day were it not for vote fraud. I explained that the Democrats could steal more than enough votes in crucial swing states to turn the election. And I still believe what I did then: electoral criminality put Obama over the top.

At the time, we heard stories about electronic-machine "glitches" switching Romney votes to Obama ones. And Patrick Moran, son of Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA), was caught on tape facilitating vote fraud while Bridgeport, CT mayor Bill Finch essentially promised to commit same for a political partner in crime.

Since then, the indications of electoral criminality have been overwhelming. First there are the anecdotes, such as the court-appointed Republican poll watchers illegally expelled from 13 Philadelphia polling places in wards that, in most cases, went 99 percent for Obama; the poll observers who noted what they considered vote fraud but were powerless to stop; and the Democrats who actually bragged about voting more than once.

Then there are the statistics, such as this staggering fact: in 59 Philadelphia districts, Romney failed to get even one vote. Final Obama-Romney tally: 19,605 to 0. Huh? Not even one person voted GOP accidentally?

Was the 2012 Election Stolen? (Shockingly ample evidence that Obama did not legitimately win)

The real question is "Where is the outrage, and why isn't the GOP doing something?"

The evidence that Hussein is pushing us at light speed to socialism is clear, so there is a lot at stake!

I’ve accepted the fact that we’re now under an illegitimate tyranny.

I take solace in the fact that it is unsustainable and will collapse upon itself, and those who depend on it the most will face the consequences of their sloth.

Very sad. Even if the fraud did not change the outcome, ( and it is not certain it didn’t), every elected official who took an oath to uphold and defend should be clamoring for an investigation. What happened in Philadelphia was a statistical impossibility. Otherwise a rational person would conclude that participating in an election, is a useless exercise.

-the county where Romney did not receive a single vote. They actually went out to find the 12 registered republican voters yeah.. 12. most of them had moved.

as far as the wood county results over 100% voting.. that is the home of BGSU.. and if the college is in session they will have well over the number of people that live there voting - as the population in that county is low without the university.

not that i don't believe that some votes were cast twice, there is not the evidence of conspiracy that some people want to believe.

I have accepted that as well. The media/propaganda organs of the democrat party made it possible by being complicit in the fraud.

I’m not going Galt, I’m going “na levo.”

Just like with the birth certificate, we’ll never really know the truth.

Personally, I’m not too sure that what I was predicting a year ago didn’t happen: That real conservatives didn’t like Romney, and voted with their butts.

It no longer matters if Obama is a legitimate President - either because of birth, fake identity, or fraud. He occupies the oval office and exercises the power of the Presidency to destroy the US and punish all those who he believes have wronged his constituency, Muslims and the planet.

Vote fraud may have put The Won over the top, but were it not for the fact that roughly half the country considers it legitimate to have the government “take stuff from those a-holes over there and give it to me”, voter fraud wouldn’t have been adequate.

I hear you but it would prove to be fruitless. Who among the major media outlets have covered this egregious fraud? Fox? It would be portrayed by the mainstrem media as 'sour grapes', 'retaliation', 'racist', etc.,etc.,etc.

At least fill out and send them IRS form 4868 to apply for the extension to file your federal 1040 tax return. After Oct 17, it’s up to you.

It may have occurred at the margins, but I doubt it was widespread enough to tip the election. What is shocking is the massively growing numbers of voters who now embrace socialism.

Where is the ample evidence? Selwin Duke offers a lot of interesting statistical data, but I don’t see any evidence in this story. A lot of conjecture, but no evidence. I want to see evidence, prosecution, conviction, and jail time. Furthermore, I would like to see the voting privileges of anyone convicted of voter fraud be suspended for the rest of their lives. Along with a huge dose of public humiliation. (Bring back the stocks.) And if they are elected officials, or attorneys, their removal from office and/or their licenses revoked.

*************

For what it’s worth;

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57548626/romney-earned-zero-votes-in-some-urban-precincts/

Romney earned zero votes in some urban precincts

snips...

Obama’s dominance was mostly confined to largely African-American areas of West and North Philadelphia. In the third division of Philadelphia’s 28th Ward, for example, 94 percent of the residents are black, and the 2010 census recorded only seven white residents. Voter registration lists showed only 12 registered Republicans in the division, none of whom voted for Romney or responded to the Inquirer’s requests for comment.......

The Phildadelphia Inquirer reported today that, in 59 precincts in inner-city Philadelphia, the GOP nominee received not a single vote. And according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, nine precincts in Cleveland returned zero Romney votes. ......

And the outcome is not at all out of step with recent history - in 2008, 57 divisions in Philadelphia returned zero votes for then-GOP nominee, Arizona Sen. John McCain. And in 2004, a more Republican-friendly election year, five Philadelphia divisions shut out former President George W. Bush entirely.....

end snips

Even in Texas there were less votes cast for president than in 2008.

7,964,668 — 2012
8,077,795 — 2008

At best, maybe a few “brave” Republicans will write a series of increasingly strongly worded letters to the AG, all of which will be laughed at and round filed. Other Republicans and conservative commentators will ignore the issue or denounce it as tin-foil hattery. In the end, nothing will be done and Barry and his cohorts will have another 4 years to continue trashing America.

Perhaps the best thing at this point is just to get out of the way and give him everything he wants. Without the GOP obstructionist bogeyman to point to, all the King's Teleprompters and all the King's Infobabes will be unable to spin his way out of "you break it, you bought it".

I think we should fight evil and never accept it. Too bad those with the power to do it, prefer to be the dogs and just roll over. If this election was the most important ever, why the sudden 'not interested' by the GOP.

Trash the conservatives and Tea Party seemed to be their only concern and no fight now against the enemy.

That leads me to believe, once in 'the seat', nothing would have been done anyway to undo the former evil deeds since their head is deliberately in the sand now.

Allen West appears to be the only one who walks the talk with no help from the GOP. Amazingly obvious.

I’m not so sure about that, wolfpat. I’m one of those real conservatives who initially didn’t plan to vote for Mittens..and i caved.

I know others who did same. Maybe a small percentage stayed home but I think most of us came to realize that a vote for Rom was a vote against Bam and that made it easier.

You're not going to see the evidence, because they kicked the GOP poll watchers out.

Even if Philly RV is googletybillion-0 for the Dems, that doesn't preclude fraud. Why do you think they kicked GOP poll watchers out? BECAUSE THE DEMOCRAT ELECTION OFFICIALS WERE SHOWING THE PENNSYLVANIA AMISH HOW TO VOTE. Literally how to accomplish the act of filling out the ballot. Yes, that stupid.

I’m beginning to believe it is a useless excersize.like voting in a communist country where the dictator gets 100 percent of the vote.

We deserve what we get since the Cowardly Republicans don’t seem to even care enough to put up a fight.

The only one that is fighting is Col.West.The only guy with the gonads to take on the thieving democrats.

IMO, that explains how sincere they were from the beginning. And they say McCain handed it to obama in '08? This is truly a silver platter delivery now.

The FBI is too busy investigating the emails of our generals to be even mildly curious about evidence that this election for their CIC could have been stolen by the Chicago Democrat mafia.

We will roll over and take it for four more years because it’s easier than making waves. George Washington is rolling over in his grave.

I rationalized a Romney vote too. I saw a sign in his mention of the Tenth Amendment during the debate.

But I also know a fair number of black people. Some of them didn’t vote in 2008 but did vote this time. I tried to explain their error, but they didn’t see logic.

I also know a lot of people who did what I said I’d do: vote for Johnson. I can’t blame them.

I blame the RNC elites who helped destroy the Cain campaign, and then shoved Romney down our throats.

Engaging with fools leaves that one a fool. But this is very different, very different. Who would every show up in the next election with this kind of non action after people $upported, spent gas, fought traffic and gave their time to attend a rally? For what?

And we have four dead Americans. No one is left to support Americans.

OK. That was Philadelphia. What about the rest of the country? WHERE is the actual evidence? I’m sure that there was fraud, but I want to see REAL evidence documented before it flies away.

I heard a story last night over dinner that an election judge who has lived for many years in Delafield noticed a large influx of voters oming late in the day and registering. (Wisconsin allows people to register at the polls on election day, a concept that former Sen. Russ Feingold was trying to enact in the rest of he country before he was defeated in 2010.) The judge, who knows almost everyone in town, recognized that these people were not from the community. She called the GAB (Governent Accountability Board) to report it, and the GAB said, “Let them vote.” But, without actual evidence, this is just a story.
