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?

The fraud was blatant and widespread. You just don’t WANT to believe it.

Wrong. I'm just not going to jump on that bandwagon until more facts are in.

“I would prefer Putin as president.

At least he’s an unapologetic patriot for his country and promotes its interests.”

I agree. I don’t like him. He is not our friend. But he does look out for the interests of his country, instead of selling it down the river. If we’re going to live in a totalitarian system, at least let’s have one that promotes our country.

I worry that despite how flawed the 2012 election might be it may be the last free Presidential election in this country for sometime. I fully believe that Obama may like Caesar Chavez simply declare himself dictator for life.

“Here’s your new President”

Quite frankly, I’d rather have Mr. Putin as president of The United States right now than Obama.

I’m quite serious about that.

Neither are U.S. citizens, of course.

But if he were hired on to defend American interests as strongly as he defends Russian interests, I have no doubt that Mr. Putin would apply himself as requested...

...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.

The primaries told it all: Conservatives HATED Romney, the anti-conservative candidate, who was nevertheless pushed by the GOP-e upon us with massive funding and convincing advertising that "Romney is the only legitimate candidate who can beat Obama."

That, coupled with massive election fraud, is how this was pulled off.

RE: 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

Sorry, that one doesn’t work. You have to vote where you are registered.

The real question is “Where is the outrage, and why isn’t the GOP doing something?”

What can the GOP do? I mean, really, go shout from the rooftops? That might have worked when we had a town crier, but not now. The information fed to the greedy, ignorant sheep is controlled by the media. The media is completely controlled by the democrat party, and is complicit in the fraud. When I say fraud, I mean more than just stealing a few votes here and there. The massive fraud is in the total flow of information.

All you have to do is look at two stories: Benghazi & Petraeus. Benghazi involved the murder of an American ambassador and it got swept under the rug. Petraeus is an extramarital affair that was kept under wraps until the election was safely over. Now it is THE STORY, 24/7, and every little detail is being thrown out there. Benghazi is still ignored.

The point is that any effort made by any conservative is the tree falling in the forest; if nobody reports it, it didn’t happen. And the greedy ignorant sheep that put 0bama in power and kept him there will never know. Frankly, as long as they have Dancing With the Stars, I don’t think they care.

I’d like to see precinct-level red-blue maps for ‘12, ‘08, and ‘04

I’d like to see a map shat shows red and blue for states that have and don’t have photo-id requirements for voters.

I’d like to see red-blue map by precinct, where more than 100% of the registered voters turned out to vote.

I’d like to see a red-blue precinct map that shows where a candidate received more than 97-percent of the votes cast in that precinct.

I’d like to see a map that shows precincts where long-time registered voters turned out in their precincts to vote - after not showing up to vote for 5 or more, 10 or more and 15 or more years.

I’d like to see someone call those voters to ask them personally if they just voted - And I’d like to know how many of those people still live in that precinct. (Enquiring minds...)

I’d like to better understand the problems that active military personnel had with absentee ballots. What percentage was cast in 2012, compared to 2010, 2008, and 2004.

There are so many questions to ask...

Just because the media filter is tough to break through, is no reason for the GOP to not even appear to make the attempt...

“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.”

I think you’re coming closer to the truth here than many folks would believe.

The election may or may not have been “tipped” by fraud. The only states where it might have made a difference are Ohio and Florida. I know that Ohio is controlled by a Republican governor (FL — can’t remember). Why didn’t the governor have in place a system to monitor the election process? Particularly in the ‘rat wards most susceptible to cheating?

The more vexing problem is that what Romney thought to be “the 47%” is actually more like 49% or 50%. And their numbers aren’t shrinking in the states where they make the difference.

There are no easy solutions to the problems that conservatives and Republicans face in America. That isn’t to say there aren’t possible solutions, but they are not popular (at least not YET). I’ve suggested them on at least one other thread (at risk of having the post removed).

Perhaps a question not yet asked here is, “what course can conservatives take in the years ahead, to preserve their culture in a nation that is falling ever-leftward?”

jesus H CHRIST!...Russia is NOT America and Putin is NOT an AMERICAN...Too much assumption being made about Putin. Why does anyone think there are valid reasons for settling for a Putin? It’s like saying you’d rather have syphillus than gonnorhea when it’s not neceesary to have either.

The GOP needs to get around the media filter through much more aggressive use of social media. We need a paid staff, 24/7, out there building databases of voters, and need to target them with indoctrination on conservative issues that affect their individual core interests. And we need to start NOW and make it continuous.

That’s what the democrats are doing and they are killing us.

I disagree with your “fact that it is unsustainable and will collapse upon itself”, in that the American small businesses and “people”, not the Bama Clause Comeyets, will not stay down and will gradually learn how to work within the progressive tyranny, just like the small businesses do in Brazil and similar places. Things will become more expensive because of non-sensical gubmit regulations meant to help their cronies, and the “understood” graft this super burrocracy will naturally learn.

I think we should concentrate on voter reform. Have said it in several threads and got no response from anybody. There's a lot that can be done there.

Prosecute the egregious cases where we have them on tape. For example, the (black) gal on tape, saying she's the law here, while throwing out the Republicans, even with a lawyer arguing back at her. That can be prosecuted at the local level. I know it's hard, but when you have the tape to prove it, you have an abuse that really hurts when it's put out in the light. If you can't prosecute that because of Democrat judges, then publicize publicize publicize it.

Another thought: A month before the next election start running ads threatening to prosecute voter fraud. Just like those ads on DVD’s about it's a crime to copy this video. Publicize that voter fraud makes us just like the commie countries. It can be effective to guilt the opposition. Right now, they just think it's a big joke and the other side does it too.

World Net Daily is offering to take up this issue.

Don’t let Obama assume his second term. Arrest him and try him.

All we are ever going to get is just “stories” about vote fraud, unless the RNC/GOP/Romney/House of Reps step up and start screaming about it. For some strange reason they are oblivious.
