Democrats reward ACORN for getting them elected.

The criminals at ACORN didn't make their huge investment in vain. They bought and paid for Obama and he is returning the favor with bribe money from the stimulant package. Way to go ACORN, you bought yourself a president. Now go choke on a chicken bone you anti American, anti Republic bit of feret feces. If you are a member of ACORN, you should never get to vote, run for office, or take part in any government activity. You have forfeited that right with your crimes. I forced open your mouths and vomit down your throats!

ParaTed, for you to even suggest that because of any affiliation with any group - whether that group had a bunch of rats in it or not - people should forfeit their right to vote is simply shocking to me. Perhaps you should rewrite the Constitution and make your own list of who is allowed to vote and who is not. John McCain gave a speech at an ACORN event applauding their work before the election. Even respectable people have supported ACORN. The fact of the matter is that some the people working for ACORN on the streets were more worried about cutting a check than upholding democracy. That doesn't make ACORN in itself bad. The management of ACORN are not such complete morons that they would want to pay their employees for getting a bunch of invalid registration cards and putting them into the spotlight in a scandal. And OF COURSE they didn't get Barack Obama elected. The registrations that were faked were not valid, and had no impact on the election. If anything, the whole ACORN scandal lost Obama votes. However, I agree that they should not be receiving so much government assistance after the scandal. It is obvious that ACORN needs some severe reform and for that fact they shouldn't be getting help from the government.

In the 2000 election the Democrats were successful in blocking many military ballots from Iraq and Afghanistan because they were not post marked by the US Postal Service but by the Military Post Office. Evidently the Democrats must think they are not worth enough to vote only worth enough to die to protect them. The registrations that were found and accepted to be fake were not allowed. In Ohio they allowed them all because the Sect. of State did not have time to check them all and to allow some and not others would not be fair. In Minnesota the Sec of State, A strong supporter of ACORN, said he saw no pattern of fraud and refused to investigate. In the recount there one poll worker in a heavily Democratic area suddenly remember, 2 days =after the election that she had a bag of absentee Ballots in her trunk. The Democratic Sect of State allowed them. Surprise when they all turned out to be for Franklin and Obama. You had a group of College student from Michigan who visited a friend in Ohio and all 250 registered to vote in Ohio giving the same address at the same ACORN registration. None were asked for ID or proof they lived there like a utility bill. Voter Registration should be done only by the government at a government office and we need a photo ID to vote. This would cut down fraud. Don't forget the Mayor, a supporter of President Obama, of Gary Indiana who told reporters on the night of the primary that he was waiting to see what the vote was from the rest of the state before he was releasing his ballots. He did release them when it looked like Senator Obama would win, but Senator Clinton has a stronger in down state than he thought and she still won.

There are many crimes that result in a loss of voting rights. I'm undecided about what I think about felons losing their right to vote in general (there are great arguments for both sides), however when the crime committed is an election related crime, the criminal should absolutely lose their right to vote. Don't be so naive. The acts of ACORN members are too prevelant for anyone to believe that it isn't encouraged by the leadership. Here in Wisconsin they are so bold they actually go door to door. With the political wind blowing the way it is in this state, they know they won't be prosecuted. For 3 elections now, there have been more votes in Milwaukee than voters registered. Can you explain that? But that doesn't excuse the TOS violations I've committed here myself. The illegal acts of ACORN and our elected officials are their own. My acts are my own. I apologize to everyone for the 50 or so TOS violations in this rant. I have reported myself for them and asked the Admins to delete it.

Oh, btw, you act like I excuse McCain for backing a criminal organization. I don't.

Those who are convicted of felonies do lose their right to vote. I have a problem with Taxpayer money going to support some groups and not others. No government money for any non profit group. Let them depend upon private donations, which could be tax deductible. With this system you would soon know who is behind these groups. I belong to several charity groups and we have very strict IRS reports that we have to file to prove that money raised by the group was not spent on the members or to promote any political cause. Most groups also face strict oversight from their National and International Organizations. ACORN should lose its non profit status and be forced to pay back any money that was used for political purposes.

Exactly, Congress is in direct violation of the law when they give money to a purely partisan non profit group. The fact it is a criminal group just makes it worse. But that doesn't excuse the TOS violations I've committed here myself. The illegal acts of ACORN and our elected officials are their own. My acts are my own.

Nice try, the vomit just came out my nose. ACORN probably promised to cheat just as hard to get him reelected in 2012 that's all. We need to have a pig roast at the Washington Mall...

As long as crooked politicians and the incompetent press are covering for them, why not?

I thought on of the points of living in America was the right to associate with and advocate for whatever Presidential candidate you wanted. It's called the first Amendment. Even members of the KKK (who are classified as domestic terrorists by the government) can vote. You and I, apparently don't read or interpret the Constitution the same way.

Of course, they have the right to association. However, when the purpose of that association is to undermine the US Constitution, something needs to be done about it. They hide behind the Constitution but when it comes down to it, they are enemies of it.

The crime here isn't the association with ACORN, it is the criminal acts themselves.

I looked up ACORN on goggle. What they're doing in no way criminal. Just because you don't like what somebody says doesn't make them a criminal. It's the first amendment. Anybody can say whatever they want and if we disagree we can rail against it all we choose.

This proves that government is actually very efficient when it comes time to reward criminals. Talk about a quid pro quo.

Very true, it seems the Do Nothing Duo can act quickly, when there are crimes to reward. But that doesn't excuse the TOS violations I've committed here myself. The illegal acts of ACORN and our elected officials are their own. My acts are my own. I apologize to everyone for the 50 or so TOS violations in this rant.

Maybe you can fill me in a little on this, Ted, since I've been trying to find out how much money ACORN will stand to receive from the stimulus package as it stands now and what the purpose of the money will be. Also, how did they buy and pay for Obama? I mean, even if they had crooked people registering voters for them and some people registered multiple times that doesn't mean they could vote more than once and it also doesn't mean they could make them vote a certain way. Also, the HOuse stimulus bill isn't actually Obama's bill, they added things he hadn't asked for and left out things he'd wanted. I'm not arguing or defending or attacking ACORN or anyone else, I'm just trying to get better informed. Annie
