    There's only ONE way to STOP the far-left Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) from possibly hi-jacking our electoral system.

    The actions you take (or do not take) RIGHT NOW as you read this urgent appeal may well determine whether or not ACORN will succeed.

    Powerline.com went so far as to write: "It is reasonable to ask whether ACORN is in fact a criminal conspiracy to subvert the voting rights of Americans."

    ACORN's actions, which are currently under investigation in 12 states, may actually strike at the very heart of the freedoms we cherish and enjoy in the United States of America!

    This is probably the most urgent and pivotal letter we've ever put before you.

    These are desperate times and simply listening to Sean Hannity or Rush talk about this evolving scandal on the radio WILL NOT STOP ACORN!

    Hearing allegations about ACORN on FOX News WILL NOT STOP ACORN!

    Simply shooting off an angry e-mail IS NOT going to STOP ACORN!

    And no, threatening "legal action" AFTER the fact IS NOT going to STOP ACORN!

    Frankly, RIGHT NOW, talk is cheap.

    There's only ONE way to STOP the apparent massive voter fraud that may be taking place right under your nose.

    Simply put, if the voter registration allegations against ACORN are true, that means thousands of fraudulent votes could be cast in pivotal swing states and make a farce of our entire electoral process!

    Most everyone has heard the old story about dead people voting in Chicago.

    Imagine such a thing happening on a much larger scale. ACORN presently operates in 38 states!

    But there is a simple solution to this potential problem!

    Congress must be called back into session IMMEDIATELY and emergency legislation must be passed that simply states that voters must produce a valid state or federal ID at the polls or have their votes counted only provisionally until legitimacy can be verified.



    Use the hyperlink below to send your urgent, separate and distinct Blast Faxes to President George W. Bush and each and every Member of the Leadership of the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives.

    Tell them to call Congress back into session immediately and demand that they pass emergency legislation that will require all voters to present valid state or federal IDs at the polling place or have their votes counted only provisionally until legitimacy can be verified. Tell them that the cherished privilege to vote is pivotal to our way of life and MUST be protected from ALL illegitimate challenges whether they come from the political left or the political right!

    Demand they do it NOW! Threatening to cut off federal funds from ACORN AFTER the election is simply too little too late. ACORN's actions constitute a clear and present danger to our system of government. While such actions should and must be taken, cutting off funding and issuing court challenges and indictments after the fact does not address the threat we now face and only destabilizes our government, sets a dangerous precedent and encourages future threats!

    ACORN "Wiseguys" Laugh At Criminal Indictments!



    Some will say that criminal investigations are already in progress and since authorities already plan a nationwide sweep of ACORN offices there is no need to panic.

    In other words, the system will handle the problem.

    But the sad truth of the matter is that such Pollyanna pronouncements will do NOTHING to STOP ACORN.

    Quite frankly, if past performance is any indication of future results, CRIMINAL INDICTMENTS OR LAWSUITS MAY NOT STOP ACORN!

    According to some reports, ACORN, in the past, has actually recruited convicted felons.

    The Associated Press recently reported that the Milwaukee ACORN office hired at least seven felons who were convicted of crimes ranging from drug possession to robbery.

    According to the Washington Post: "Nevada Secretary of State and Attorney General who alleged in an application for a search warrant that ACORN had hired 59 felons through a work release program as canvassers..." [Emphasis Mine]

    ACORN's Wisconsin political director Carolyn Castore rather matter-of-factly told the Associated Press: “We have a lot of folks with felony records and, frankly, they need jobs.”

    And yes, there is a history of complaints against ACORN.

    Michael Gaynor with Canada Free Press recounts an article published in the Wall Street Journal TWO YEARS AGO:

    “These are recent complaints, but ACORN’s history is riddled with criminal activity. During the last major election, the Wall Street Journal did a story about ACORN. Four ACORN workers had been indicted by a federal grand jury for submitting false voter registration forms to the Kansas City, Missouri, election board; other ACORN workers were convicted in Wisconsin and Colorado and investigations, at the time the article was written, were under way in Ohio, Tennessee and Pennsylvania."

    Gaynor also writes of more recent indictments and investigations:

    "Last year, The Seattle Times reported the biggest voter-registration fraud scheme in Washington history. Three ACORN employees pleaded guilty, and four more were charged for filling out and submitting more than 1,800 fictitious voter-registration cards during a 2006 registration drive in King and Pierce counties.’ (Keith Ervin, ‘Three plead guilty in fake voter scheme,’ 10-30-2007)"

    "This year, an ACORN employee in West Reading, PA, was sentenced for up to 23 months in prison for identity theft and tampering with records. A second ACORN worker pleaded not guilty to the same charges and is free on $10,000 bail.

    "There are also examples of indictments this year, such as the four ACORN employees in Kansas City charged with identity theft and filing false registrations during the 2006 election and the Reynoldsburg fellow indicted on two felony counts of illegal voting and false registration, after being registered by ACORN to vote in two separate counties. And there are current investigations into ACORN for voter fraud all over the map..." [Emphasis Mine]

    Ask yourself the following (assuming these most recent allegations are credible), if criminal indictments have not deterred ACORN in the past, why should the prospect of criminal indictments deter ACORN NOW?

    Too Little Too Late...



    Investors' Business Daily (IBD) recently made the following suggestion to John McCain:

    "McCain would be wise to start preparing a challenge to voter registration rolls should he lose the race in a close contest. He'd be crazy not to contest the results in light of these events."

    With all due respect to IBD, the only "craziness" would be to wait. This is NOT a Republican vs. Democrat or Liberal vs. Conservative issue.

    IF ACORN has already violated our system of government and IF they plan to continue violating our system through election day with impunity, closing the barn doors after the horses have gone is not a sound strategy.

    Some of our elected officials are starting to talk tough but again, talk is cheap.

    According to Politico.com, House Minority Leader John Boehner is already talking about cutting off federal funding to ACORN.

    But his proposed actions fall short of the mark.

    “Election cycle after election cycle, this organization has been at the forefront of breaking the law in order to promote their left-wing agenda. All the while, they have been the recipients of millions of dollars of federal funding through various federal programs and third-party groups. House Republicans took a stand recently to cut off funding to an ACORN slush fund created by their allies in the House Majority, but now more must be done."

    “All federal funding to ACORN must be stopped. The ACORN slush fund must be disbanded. Sources of federal funding through the Department of Housing and Urban Development or any other agency must be stopped. Contracting for services between candidates for federal office and ACORN, as Senator Obama has done, must end. Now that the taxpayers own Fannie Mae, any funding from Fannie Mae’s nonprofit foundation to ACORN must stop.

    “ACORN spent decades promoting the housing policies that brought America’s economy to the brink, and similarly over the years has committed fraud on our system of elections, making American voters question the fairness and accuracy of the exercise of their most fundamental right under the Constitution. Now it is time to cut off ACORN before it grows even more destructive.”

    No Congressman Boehner!

    Now is not the time to just cut off funding (frankly, that should have happened years ago).

    NOW is the time to protect our electoral process!

    Boehner does however, bring up a valid point. Your tax dollars ARE STILL going to ACORN. You're actually paying them just as surely as if you wrote the check yourself!

    Yes, we should cut off ALL funding to ACORN NOW as Boehner states. Yes, we should have Congressional investigations. And yes, if the allegations are true, we shouldn't stop with ACORN... heads should roll in Congress as well!

    But that's not enough to STOP the clear and present danger we all face today!

    In a day and age when we have to present valid identification to board an airplane, it's not a stretch to ask someone to simply prove their identity to vote.

    It does not present a "constitutional crisis" or deny anyone access to a polling place to ask them to either present valid identification or vote provisionally. If their identity can be verified later, then their vote is counted.

    Free societies actually institute such requirements.

    Tyrannies and Banana Republics DO NOT!

    It's unfortunate that our conservative leaders often lack the imagination and the forethought to understand the gravity of the threats we face.

    We shouldn't have to ask that our liberties be protected. Our elected leaders should be calling upon us to take action... not visa-versa.

    But do it we must.

    If we don't send the message NOW, the message will not be sent... at least not until it is TOO LATE!

    Join us by acting NOW!

    No, I didn't write it myself, and if people would rather pass than stand up for their rights as American citizens then they will have no reason to complain with Obama is our next president due to voter fraud. This is not the time to be too freaking lazy to be an American.

    IF you read it then you would know that it has links get in touch the President and Congress to insist they come back for an emergency session NOW. Before the election. To enact emergency legislation that would require all voters to show ID to vote and make all absentee ballots provisional until they can be verified, so that ACORN can be stopped. It makes the point that ACORN is getting tax money to do perpetrate the voter registration fraud. Imagine that we are paying them, as surely as we are writing them a check out of our own checkbooks, to help them get Obama elected even though they have to cheat and break the law to do it. Dig through the emails to get to the links! This is really important, no matter if you are conservative or liberal, Republican or Democrat, this is about infringing on one of our most basic rights!

    That's the point of this post. The damage doesn't have to be done for now. We can demand that emergency be taken now. We can fax/email our representatives and try to do something NOW! There is no point in shutting the barn door after the horse gets out!

    Waterhouselake, I hear you on the illegal alien thing, sometimes I'm afraid that might be a battle that we will NEVER win!
    Do I know you?

    Yes, I know who is in charge. HOWEVER if you sit back and whine about the democrats being in charge and not at least TRYING to do the right thing, then go ahead and whine, but remember that you will be responsible for doing nothing and not trying. If we subscribe to your logic then what you are saying is because our rights are being trampled on then we should just lick our wounds and whine about it, instead of stand up and fight for it. I have personally never given up on something that I believe in without a fight. If you dont' want to stand up for what is right then that is your business, and you deserve exactly what you get.

    I have taken it on the road. All I'm asking is what the GOP is asking of us. To at least TRY. I didn't make this email up. It came from the GOP National Committee. If you don't want to do it, then don't do it, but don't try to stop me from trying.

    Lori, I sent a letter myself.

    The website that you have posted is charging your credit card for doing the same service for you that you could do for free. Most people will not want to give up their charge card information.

    I didn't do the credit card myself. I just got the addresses from the site and emailed on my own. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Old fashioned, hand written letter sent this morning. Keep up the good work! MIA, I know you are on the right side of issues, but you seem to be coming down hard on her for wanting to do something. Hey, we are all on the same team...save your energy to fight the liberals...just my views. Good luck to both of you.

    And now Obama has his lawyers "pressuring the Department of Justice to put off a probe of voter registration fraud allegations leveled against the now infamous liberal group ACORN'.

    Read the short article linked above.

    The premise is that McCain is trying to suppress the VOTE!!
    Just like a lawyer!!!

    It was in an EMAIL from the GOP mailer thing. I will not post my email for you to see. The sites are listed in the copy and paste. You don't have to read it, but I can guarantee that you are one of a very few who won't. I've gotten a lot of pms and emails telling that they've read it and responded. You better believe that I'm still reading this. I believe for standing up for what I believe in, even if it isn't always the easiest thing to do. I don't have an entitlement issue. I don't think that everything should be spoonfed to me in the easiest possible manner. I believe that sometimes it's worth standing up for what's right, even if it means more work on my part. If reading a post is too difficult, I hope you don't intend to vote because I'm sure reading the ballot will be too hard for you too.

    Jack, There's a term that's been around a long time and I'm sure it applies here. *Better late than never!* At least someone is making an effort and I don't think it's too late. As for Ziggy, he's just like my bad knee, a pain that goes away sometime. Actually I would like to sit down with folks like him and just see what they are really about. It's hard to tell someones intelligence over a keyboard. Jackie B.
