Last week’s Election 2010 Blog explored the possibility of potential election fraud. Coincidentally, states such as Nevada (See E-mail Shows Illegal Activity in Reid’s Campaign) were considered to be high risk for election fraud, and they remained blue states despite the red wave that swept over the rest of the nation. It is important to not push this aside as politics as usual, but rather to investigate and determine whether fraud was, in fact, committed, and if it was, to expose the root causes. If we are ever going to make progress to a true representative system then intimidation, bribery and coercion must be eliminated and the secret ballot respected.
Unfortunately within the government, major corporations and labor unions (See Union-Investigated Voter Shenanigans) there are individuals who believe these tactics are acceptable (See How Unions and Their Allies Could be Stealing November’s Election Right Now). In fact, these tactics have become part of the “playbook” for accomplishing their individual agendas. Whatever happened to honesty, character, integrity and playing by the rules? These people can’t or won’t compete on a level playing field and truly believe that the “Ends Justify the Means.”
The problem is twofold. First, the fraudsters involved understand how to identify and manipulate people who are susceptible to their tactics. These tactics were used by the SEIU against EMS during the almost 5-year corporate organizing campaign as chronicled in The Devil at My Doorstep. Having experienced first-hand the ruthless SEIU organization process, it is easy to see all of the striking parallels between the SEIU’s corporate campaign tactics and election campaign tactics (See Nevada Voting Machines Automatically Checking Harry Reid’s Name, Voting Machine Technicians are SEIU Members) used by government officials, corporations and unions during last week’s election. The SEIU and other radical unions were deeply involved in these races and their telltale fingerprints are evident in the process as outlined by Wayne Root (See Explaining The Harry Reid Victory and Tea Party Loss in Nevada and Harry Reid Should Not Be Above the Law).
Second, and just as concerning, is that a majority of Americans are either oblivious to what is transpiring, or don’t believe that the fraudsters actually use these type of tactics against other people. Unfortunately they are naïve, as was I before the vicious attack by the SEIU against my employees, customers and company. The Devil at My Doorstep was written to inform the American people, educate the naïve, wake up the oblivious and expose the undeniable parallels between “Big Labor” and the current administration’s tactics to achieve their socialist and dictatorial objectives of controlling the system at any cost. Evidently the parallels are coming to light with this election. It’s time for Americans to stand up and demand investigations to expose and eradicate this type of behavior.
