What Is Going On?

Key music:
There's something happening here, What it is ain't exactly clear
Actually, it is pretty clear; moreover, it is rampant. Our democratic process is under attack! Don't believe me? Let's start with the record voter fraud.... by both sides!
Nevada Democrats gathered to announce they have evidence a group called Voters Outreach of America is trying to steal the election. "It was exposed that this group hired and trained employees to register solely Republicans and cast aside voter affidavits of Democrats." (Source)

Republican Gov. Bill Owens said yesterday, "I am extremely concerned about the widespread allegations of serious and sustained criminal activity surrounding voter registration in Colorado." (Source) <- Several more instances here (scroll to bottom)

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Florida prosecutors have been asked to investigate possible voter fraud involving 25 registration forms with apparently bogus addresses.(Source)

SC Man Charged With Voter Fraud
A Florence man has been arrested on charges of using names and personal information of people -- including the Florence mayor -- on more than one thousand voter registration forms and turning them in to the county voter registration office.(Source)

Oregon officials have opened an investigation into alleged improper voter registration practices, Secretary of State Bill Bradbury said Wednesday.(Source)

More than 1,000 voter registration forms and absentee ballot requests may be fraudulent in Lake and Summit counties(Ohio), where investigations of irregularities are broadening.(Source)
I am sure instances can be found in every state, but especially in swing states... ACORN, ACT, and other Soros like 527s have been breaking the law routinely throughout the US... ACT has even been sending felons door to door (maybe in your neighborhood).

But more amazing, and surprising, and scary is this. A manifesto of sorts on how foreigner's can help influence the election.
The result of the US election will affect the lives of millions around the world but those of us outside the 50 states have had no say in it - until now. In a unique experiment, G2 has assembled a democratic toolkit to enable people from Basildon to Botswana to campaign in the presidential race. And with a little help from the folks in Clark County, Ohio, you might help decide who takes up residence in the White House next month. Oliver Burkeman explains how.
If this doesn't enrage you, then you are not a patriot... and you are not an American...
on the following pages, we have assembled a handy set of tools that non-Americans can use to have a real chance of influencing the outcome of the vote. We've identified ways to give money to help your preferred candidate, even though direct campaign contributions from foreigners aren't allowed. There are ideas for making your voice heard in the influential local media outlets where it could really count. And at the core of it is a unique scheme to match individual Guardian readers to individual American voters, giving you the opportunity to write a personal letter, citizen to citizen, explaining why this election matters to you, and which issues you think ought to matter to the US electorate.

To maximise the likelihood of your efforts making a difference, we've zeroed in on one of the places where this year's election truly will be decided: Clark County, Ohio, which is balanced on a razor's edge between Republicans and Democrats. In the 2000 election, Al Gore won Clark County by 1% - equivalent to 324 votes - but George Bush won the state as a whole by just four percentage points. This time round, Ohio is one of the most crucial swing states: Kerry and Bush have been campaigning there tire lessly - they've visited Clark County itself - and the most recent Ohio poll shows, once again, a 1% difference between the two of them. The voters we will target in our letter-writing initiative are all Clark County residents, and they are all registered independents, which somewhat increases the chances of their being persuadable.
A little later in the article...
American law forbids foreigners from giving money to affect the outcome of a federal election - except that, on closer inspection, it doesn't. You're banned from donating to the campaigns themselves, or to many of the independent campaigning groups that fight explicitly on behalf of one candidate. So you need to identify officially non-partisan groups whose activities, none the less, have the practical effect of helping one candidate over the other. "Perhaps the most important way foreigners could help John Kerry would be to help out those organisations which have, as part of their mission, fostering African-American voter turnout," says Nathaniel Persily, a Pennsylvania university expert on election law. "It's quite clear that if there was 100% African-American turnout in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida, John Kerry would win this election running away."


If you want to broadcast your views to a wider audience, focus on the media outlets swing-state residents are reading and hearing. Take care: deluging the same organisation with numerous near-identical messages rarely impresses (we speak from experience), and some activists have run into controversy recently by disseminating "astroturf" - letters purporting to be personal but emanating, in reality, from party headquarters. Springfielders read the Springfield News Sun (;) and the Columbus Dispatch (, based in the nearby state capital, is another influential outlet.

If you're feeling brave, though, you might want to explore the highly influential talk-radio airwaves.


We are offering the four people who write the most persuasive letters to Clark County voters the chance to travel there and campaign in person. At the end of October, the winners will accompany a group of Guardian journalists to Ohio to meet voters and participate in the closing days of the race.
So not only do we need to be worring about people who don't exist voting thanks to George Soros, but we have Europe throwing their .02 in as well... who knows how far this stuff goes... I am mad... really mad.

As an Ohio resident and an Ohio voter, I am personally offended by this. I am outraged by this. I don't care if 100% of the foreigners support Bush, they have no business in who WE pick to lead OUR country. I understand our decision makes a difference to them; but that doesn't give them a right to pick our leader. If they want to decide who the next President is, I say we let them lobby America for statehood. If they don't want to be Americans, they shouldn't be trying to mess with our vote!
We better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
