Like many people today, I suffer from a certain malaise regarding the future of my country. After hearing J. Christian Adams on a Charlotte NC radio program today, that malaise became full out fear, like the kind you get from waking up in a strange place after too many tequila drinks. You knew that before you began you had a wallet, didn't have tranny spooning on you, and you would like to be shed of one while hopelessly desiring the other. No matter how you shake out on that, you're mighty scared.
Mr.Adams happens to be the DOJ whistle-blower for the case involving the voter intimidation that occurred in Philadelphia. Rather, he would be if said case were actually a case. As it happens the DOJ pretty much blew the whole thing off, using the the time honored legal doctrine of Ut Abyssus Ubis. This was used despite the fact that the Black Panthers in question had more video evidence against them than Paris Hilton had in her infamous "Slut Trial".
Perhaps as sign of my malaise, the fact that a Democratic POTUS and his Democratic Attorney General would not prosecute said case is about as novel as discovering that BP is the POTUS' largest recipient of bribes campaign donations. No what was frightening was what Mr. Adams had to reveal about other DOJ cases that had been given the "right to choose".
Apparently, there is a great deal of voter fraud occurring due to "Motor Voter" laws and early voting. Imagine that, instant registration and the ability to cast a ballot whenever promulgating fraudulent voting. Despite this being as obvious as the Pope's religious preference and the location of ursine restrooms, Mr Adams informed that the DOJ chose not to pursue those investigations.
The fact that the DOJ acted in the POTUS's political interest is not in and of itself terrifying. The fact that they chose to do so as it relates to fair and free elections is incredibly so. The only real glue that binds the tax cattle that are the middle class to this government is the notion that the elected government represents the true will of the people.
This nation of small business owners and those that labor in the private sector only accept our fate as host for the ballot lice based on the premise that our sacrifice is legitimate. If the practical application of the franchise to vote becomes widely debased, then so does the social contract upon which of those that pay taxes. We may accept that the house has an edge in the game, but we refuse to play with loaded dice.
This will be the Lefts' defining moment. For all the wailing of teeth and gnashing of hair that the various Bush DOJ efforts produced, this will show the true face of the American Left. If the thought of some innocent person having their cell phone records examined is a crushing blow to democracy and freedom in this country, how does widespread voter fraud rate? A better question might be: How long will the American Taxpayer's suffer their role without a voice before exercising some "voter intimidation" on their unfairly elected representatives?
