But wait: there’s more. The head of the NAACP in Mississippi was also recently sent to prison for ten (10) counts of voter fraud.[Source]
But wait: there’s more. In an effort to promote North Carolina as one of the healthiest states in the nation, 410 individuals over the age of 110 voted by absentee ballot … but that’s just in Charlotte, North Carolina. Statewide, there are over 2,660 people who have registered to vote absentee, all of them over the age of 110.[Source]
We’re impressed; we thought for certain, given the direction this country has taken over the past 20 years that patriotism was dead. Thank goodness, we still have the centenarians to keep us focused on what’s most important. The number of elderly patriots who vote Democratic is utterly amazingly, but we suppose this makes sense if one considers that North Carolina was a Jim Crow state under the Democratic Party for well over 100 years. Of course, there MUST have been 110-year-old Republicans who committed fraud, too, right? Who would believe that dead peo, er … centenarians only vote for democrats? So if they end up voting for a few Republicans, it appears plausible —to progressives, we mean.
In spite of these problems, North Carolina governor Beverly Perdue doesn't think voter fraud is a problem in her state. No siree ... there is absolutely no basis for imposing “voter identification” standards. Of course, Beverly is a democrat. She’s one of those thoughtful progressives who think denying the vote to people who want to cast more than one ballot violates their civil rights.
But there is another point of view. Posthumous voting impugns the integrity of our most sacred right: to select our leaders honestly and fairly. And while we are on the topic of voting, why is it that prisoners are able to receive absentee ballots (they aren't even allowed to vote), but our soldiers serving overseas, who are entitled to absentee ballots, are denied them? No matter. We should regard ourselves fortunate to have members of the New Black Panther Party guarding our voting precincts … you know, in case a conservative wants to vote.
