Oh, dear, voter fraud you say? [Darleen Click]

Please, can’t we all just move on to our bright shiney FORWARD! future as subjects to The State we all belong to?

A review of voter registration data for ten counties in Colorado details a pattern of voter bloat inflating registration rolls to numbers larger than the total voting age population. Using publicly available voter data and comparing it to U.S. Census records reveals the ten counties having a total registration ranging between 104 to 140 percent of the respective populations.

Counties such as Gilpin and Hinsdale have 110 percent of their populations registered to vote. Gilpin County has a total population of 5,441 with 17.4% of the population below the voting age, making the highest possible number of registered voters 4,494. Currently Gilpin County has 4909 registered voters. Hinsdale County has a total population of 830 with 20% of the population below the voting age, making the highest possible number of registered voters 664. At 110 percent registration, that means that there are 515 excess voter registrations in Gilpin county and 68 excess registrations for Hinsdale.

When Media Trackers requested comment on the voter bloat in Gilpin county, Chief Deputy Gail Maxwell explained that “This is just a reminder Gilpin is a Gaming Community. The voters come and go!”

  1. [Chief] Deputy Gail Maxwell explained that “This is just a reminder Gilpin is a Gaming Community. The voters come and go!”

    – Its nice to know that if you find yourself on a hunting trip during election day you can just drop a ballot or ten in the nearest polling place.

    – Theres no point in getting upset about this sort of thing. The major parties have decided honest elections are not in anyones interest.

  2. Stuff like this is just a reminder that we’re not going to get the country back on track via national elections.

  3. Reasons why I object to same-day registration, Numbers 1 through 60,000,000.

    My wife was musing about the 30-day waiting period to vote here in Georgia and the fact 18-year-olds whose birthdays fall too close to an election are out of luck, and I jokingly replied that if in their old age they submit an absentee ballot and die before Election Day they’ll get it back (as long as the vote-counters don’t find out and suspect it would go against their guy).

    If they move to Chicago or Philadelphia they’ll get it back dozens of times. In at least one Florida county they could keep voting more than 100 years after they die.

  4. TOM links to Dan Collins on this topic.

  5. I emailed the Romney campaign months ago suggesting that they take up the cause of fraud-free elections and voter ID as a major campaign Narrative. That is, that they invite Barack Obama to join Romney in a pledge to ensure the integrity of the American ballot. Statistics indicated that a vast percentage of Americans both distrusted the election process and supported voter ID laws (including minorities). The Left was clearly terrified of voter ID laws.

    But Romney wasn’t going to drive any narrative that required heavy lifting or weathering media blowback — on this or any issue (look at how he ran from Benghazi).

  6. Hey, when Kim Il Dingdong won 99% of votes, everyone with an IQ above lukewarm milk knows it’s a fraud.

    When The Glorious One takes 99% in Philly, well… he’s just popular.

    I’m not convinced Romney actually lost. And I don’t consider those in Washington my representatives anyway, so the point is kind of moot.

  7. With each passing hour, I’m becoming more and more convinced that our only hope lies in the Several States [ie: Cranky-D is spot-on].

  8. So, what to do?

    My US Representative, Hank “Capsize” Johnson, will always vote to increase the scope and level of control of the Imperial Federal Government. More opportunity for graft, don’t you know.

    He’s one of many, so how do we go about limiting them?

    For myself, I think we’re on a political positive feedback loop. This thing will not end until the entire system blows up.

    Given that the national debt will be well over $20 trillion by the end of The Won’s second term, the crackup is likely to happen sooner than later.

    So, really,a good strategy – it seems to me – is to establish yourself *now* in a self-reliant community, well away from the chances of race-based food riots, and continue life as usual. Do whatever it is you do for a living, accumulating friends, trade goods, a few weapons, and ammo, and wait for the day.

    Then, you’ll be part of the human system that replaces the credentialist, socialist system that has us where we are.

  9. I am wondering about vote suppression/elimination after seeing stats such as Romney receiving 3 million less votes than McCain…and that George Bush got more votes from Mormon areas than Romney did…something stinks in addition to the Rhino sh*t.

  10. That’s my plan batboy. I’m going to tend my own garden, live an honest life in front of God, not government, and, as always, keep my powder dry.

    I also plan to resist government intervention whenever I feel it’s going beyond it’s bounds, but I don’t have a feeling for how that intervention will materialize. I mean, I pay my taxes(and bitch about it), have had health insurance my whole life, been in a private pension plan for 20 years, and and enjoy a lifelong good credit rating with no current debt(bank loans). What has changed is largely psychological, IMHO.

    We are no longer freemen, our God given right to pursue our own happiness ensured by government of/for the people. We are now nothing but cattle, owned by the State. Our very breath monitored and controlled by bureaucrats, and “rights” re-contextualized as “permissions”.

    I know the day is coming when the police state and I are going to cross, I just don’t know over what, exactly.

  11. Well, Texas Tech beat Kansas today, 41-34 in double overtime. I certainly got full value for my ticket. And it’s a good conclusion to an otherwise dreadful week.

  12. Oh, and Big 12 refs suck as much as Democrat vote fraudsters.

  13. Hi LBascom,

    Well, the reason I propose this mode of living is that I remember a number of people who bought remote farms up in North Georgia in the late 1990’s, expecting Y2K software bugs to bring the world to it’s knees. It didn’t happen, leaving them with real estate they’d paid to much for, and seething about their losses.

    I trust humans to build systems to replace broken systems, even to the point of replacing large automated systems with human effort. So, I’m inclined to the middle way: not too far from Atlanta, not to close to Brasstown Bald. With neighbors who don’t mind chickens, a couple of goats, a catfish pond, and a garden.

  14. Even farming won’t be much fun without fuel to run the trucks and trains that bring your fertilizer. It can be done but it is not farming as we know it.

  15. Yeah, this is no computer glitch.

    You do realize, Obamacare is a done deal now? And even the Department of education has an armed enforcement division?

    You probably don’t want to know what the plans are for the IRS…

  16. The CBO on the fiscal cliff

  17. Hey TmjUtah. Is this your gig?

    If so, bummer.

    If not, still a bummer.

  18. From instapundit

    Now that’s some audacity right there. What’s more than shameless?

  19. hillarity is resigning soon get her after she don’t work for baracky

  20. What’s more than shameless?

    Shamefull. There is no possibility of blissful ignorance on her part.

    Also, rats hate to be cornered.

  21. no shame in proggtard land no problem

  22. McGehee

    When I first registered to vote in 1972 I was lucky to be 18 just prior to CA primary, because way back when if you did not vote in your state’s primary you were not allowed to vote in the general election.

    Ain’t that a kick.

  23. – The usual suspects all think they can slip and slide with slick lawyers, and congress won’t be aggressive for long enough to nail them.

  24. The shame of it is, they are probably right.

    Alcee Hastings (disbarred judge) was reelected. The congress and senate are both thick with thieves or the husbands or wives of thieves.

    To them it’s just business.

  25. – Running out the clock seems to be the top game plan in DC these days.

  26. Even farming won’t be much fun without fuel to run the trucks and trains that bring your fertilizer. It can be done but it is not farming as we know it.

    I have thought about this. Which is why I’m reading about permaculture and alternative methods of gardening without heavy equipment.

    This isn’t Y2K in the sense that it’s not a glitch, I feel an permanent shift in the way I want to live. I’m not going Prepper with a bug-out trailer, but… even if the whole system doesn’t collapse in 2 years, I’m moving out and adopting a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

  27. Quite without any lack of certainty whatsoever, we’re awakening what and why?

    Disgust Awakening.

  28. “Son of a bitch” is because sons of bitches aren’t worthy compared to sons of non/unbitches.

    They hate us for our freedom.

  29. Farming without machines is back breaking work, and probably the main reason large families and slavery was nearly universal before steam engines. About a hundred years ago, 80% of the population worked in agriculture.

    To be a self sufficient farmer in the post industrial world, I suggest you’re going to need a horse…

  30. Looks like Alan West is too far behind for an automatic recount.

  31. It won’t be post industrial. It will be retro industrial and far less efficient.

  32. Well, as Mike Smith of Trailer Park Boys wouldn’t tell you, you ain’t much rich much so how about changin?

  33. OT: bh, is a 70lb draw weight an insane amount?

  34. Nah, it’d be comfortable, I think. Just need to pull it back part way and then the pulleys kick in and you can hold it for minutes if necessary.

    Go to a store and feel the draw, maybe. I’m guessing you’ll have no problems. To be sure, pull it back very slowly like you would if a deer was right below you and you don’t want to spook them.

    You can always adjust it a bit if everything else feels right.

  35. Heh, I didn’t really answer the question, did I?

    No, 70 isn’t insane. Feel it out though. It’s mainly about making the motion slowly when you want to be hidden.

  36. Cabela’s sells bows at decent prices, and there are a few here in MN, so I guess the thing to do is just go there and see. Hopefully they’ll have a few there for lefties. I’m looking at the PSE Stinger 3G right now. It’s around $400.

    I haven’t drawn a bow in like 30 years, so I don’t know what it’s like any more. I should have played with my brother’s bow the last time I was at his house.

  37. You’re looking at a good bow, cranky.

    I’m not sure how much I can adjust mine but I think it’s at least 7 pounds each way. If you find something you’re comfortable with there’s probably a decent amount of play above and below.

    Keep the receipt and put arrows into a box in your garage for a weekend. Good times.

  38. 70lb can be a bit much on a cold morning in an awkward position…..if you intend to use it to hunt deer or elk. I shot a compound set on 72lb when i was in my thirties. Now i shoot one set on about 62 with the modern tech to include carbon arrows it is plenty bow for hunting.

  39. …because I want to beat JHo to it

    America is over $16 trillion in debt. The “official” unemployment rate still hovers around 8%.

    Our federal government claims the right to spy on American citizens, indefinitely detain them, and even assassinate them without trial.

    Domestic drones fly over the country for civilian surveillance.

    Twelve million fewer Americans voted in 2012 than in 2008, yet political pundits scratch their heads.

    It’s not hard to see why, though.

    To go along with endorsing a never-ending policy of bailouts, “stimulus packages,” and foreign military adventurism, the establishment of neither major party questions the assaults on Americans’ liberties I’ve named above.

    As my campaign showed, the American people are fed up. Many realized heading into Tuesday that regardless of who won the presidential election, the status quo would be the real victor.

    GOP leadership is now questioning why they didn’t perform better.

    They’re looking at demographic changes in the United States and implying minorities can only be brought into the party by loudly advocating for abandoning what little remains of their limited government platform and endorsing more statist policies.

    My presidential campaign proved that standing for freedom brings people together.

    Liberty is popular – regardless of race, religion, or creed.

    As long as the GOP establishment continues to not only reject the liberty message, but actively drive away the young, diverse coalition that supports those principles, it will see results similar to Tuesday’s outcome.

    A renewed respect for liberty is the only way forward for the Republican Party and for our country.

    I urge all my Republican colleagues to join the liberty movement in fighting for a brighter future.

  40. Back in the olden days I used to shoot a 55# recurve, that was pretty common for deer hunting in WV. Back and shoulder issues would limit me to a crossbow now, I fear.

  41. Just in case you didn’t already know this, never, ever ever dry-fire a compound bow.

    Dry-firing a compound bow is up there with clearing a partially obstructed bore by shooting it clear.

  42. We should push West for Speaker of the House. Anyone can be Speaker.
