Scott Swett, writing at The American Thinker, asks the following question:
[D]espite the looming prospect of electoral dismemberment in November, the Democrats continue pushing a radical agenda: piling up debt and creating new entitlements, with crushing tax increases inevitably to follow. Why the evident lack of concern? [link dropped]Perhaps they really believe their own propaganda -- that Americans will like what we're getting once we see what it's like. Perhaps they hope that the changes they are making will permanently alter the political landscape in such a way that, as Mark Steyn once put it will, "make limited government all but impossible." Perhaps, as Swett, argues, "they intend to cheat." Perhaps the answer is, "all of the above."
Amid numerous examples of such cheating, Swett ominously notes the following:
A PowerPoint presentation available at ElectionCenter.org describes new election legislation proposed by congressional Democrats. They intend to nationalize voter registration and force the states to eliminate voter ID checks, provide absentee ballots to all voters, register voters on Election Day, and permit felons (who overwhelmingly support Democrats) to vote. Each of these measures would create new opportunities for fraud. [links dropped]Perhaps some of the many links he provides within his article discuss this issue, but Swett does not explicitly mention another possible mechanism: tampering with electronic votes. But then again, does he really have to?
Consider all this the cloud to the silver lining of what Matt Drudge called Barack Obama's "0-4" electoral record this morning upon Arlen Specter's primary loss. This record will serve as "evidence" that there is nothing going on in the event that the Democrats feel like they can get away with voter fraud on a massive scale and actually attempt it.
