Vichy Republicans

'Tea party' pols sell out the tea party
Steve Baldwin names who endorsed Romney after taking cash from his PACs

Vichy GOP

Take Christine O’Donnell, for example. O’Donnell lost her bid for the U.S. Senate in Delaware but continues to have a following among tea-party activists. Inexplicably, she recently endorsed Romney, stating she is doing so because she thinks “infrastructure and executive experience are important.” She also claimed, “He’s been consistent since he changed his mind.”

Then there’s Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, a long-time favorite of tea-party activists. Chaffetz is actually a member of the Romney “Truth Squad” that goes around harassing Newt Gingrich everywhere he speaks.

Selling one's principles to the GOP is nothing new; both Newt and Santorum have done it in the past.  The problem (again)  this year, for me anyway, is that aside from Michelle Bachmann, there were  no solid conservatives to choose from.  I didn't want to vote for any of them.   For 40 years it's been manifestly true that conservatives win— when they manage to get on the ballot over the GOP's chosen RINO,  and still ... this. Why is that?

Obama Software to Count Votes?

Major Obama Crony-Contributor company to count and manage 2012 US Vote results?

Hoes in the Outfield

Without getting too technical the concern here is this: George Soros has money in this deal.  The same George Soros who’s been cutting checks to Media Matters, MoveOn. org, The Center for American Progress, ACORN, Apollo Alliance, National Council of  La Raza. Tides Foundation, Huffington Post, Southern Poverty Law Center, Soujourners, People for the American Way, and others. The same George Soros who, in 2004, contributed almost 24 million dollars to over 500 groups dedicated to defeating George Bush—and the same guy who is behind the Secretary of State Project (SOSP), a 527 political group that has some interesting motives. Gee, why would anyone have an interest in something called the Secretary of State Project? Hmmmmm…….

Throw in the way Attorney General Eric Holder conducts himself (2008 voter intimidation case against New Black Panthers that he dropped-and others) and one could surmise that something foul is in the wind.

Tin foil hat time? You tell me. But, given the cast of characters here and all the money flowing to the left—you owe to yourself to look into this and come to your own conclusions. [Strawman - Obama Has It In The Bag]

I liked Strawman's capsule summary of this Canada Free Press article that alerted me to this, sigh, possibility of another Obamacide pill (That’s right.  A foreign company may now, ostensibly and unconstitutionally, determine who wins US “elections.”). .

Over 900 jurisdictions in 26 states across the United
States, including 14 state-wide customers, currently
use SOE Software solutions in their electoral processes.

  While I have zero doubt that Democrats would love to force all 50 to use their vote-counting software, or that Obama would issue an EO to that effect in a heart-beat, it's so constitutionally unlawful that I can't see it happening.  But with this bunch, at this stage, it could. Besides, having the right 14 states in the bag could be enough. (Here's $50 that says MD is one).

All that aside, let me axe you something, which answer is so transparent that it's rhetorical.  What in the hell was so hard about individual precincts counting and verifying votes?  And why have democrats been responsible for extended voting, early voting, unlimited absentee balloting, E-Z registration at the DMV, and no ID required balloting?
