The real Obama stood up
J.G. NASH, Of Cabbages, Of CabbagesIt will possibly be after Election Day when you read this, but it seems worthwhile to write it anyway.

In a very recent clip of a televised speech, Mr. Obama was heard exhorting his mindless minions to: Vote! Get out and vote--in advance, and on election day. Did he mean to say, "vote in advance, or on election day," but was typically inept without the usual Teleprompter crutch? Or was the President unintentionally revealing his true outlook on the American electoral process? Was he then standing up and admitting that his first interest as President is his re-election, and not the nation or its peoples; that he is willing to stoop to whatever low level may be required to achieve that selfish end?
Has the Democratic Party, especially starting four years ago when Obama brought Chicago's infamous, smoke-filled-room politics to the national stage, really been practicing stuffing of ballot boxes? Well, there is some evidence to conclude that they have.
The disgraced, community organizing machine of 2008 (Acorn) was forced to go underground after damning evidence of its amoral, unethical, and unlawful practices involving elections were unearthed. Nevertheless, their destructive mission (to control the minds and votes of millions of U.S. residents (including noncitizens) that are primarily—often only—concerned about free lunches, education, and medical care; interest-free home loans, guaranteed retirement, and unrestricted immigration from Mexico) continues.
Those millions know little or nothing about international affairs or economics, upon which the very survival of our nation depends. They are easily whipped up into a frenzy by speeches laced with racial, social, class, and economic innuendo, and then happily crowded onto chartered buses, where they receive final instructions on how to behave and answer potentially probing questions at polling places.
They are, reportedly, fed and entertained while on the buses, as well as while waiting in line to vote. I personally witnessed that in 2008: I saw long lines of parked buses by polling places; I even then spoke with persons that rode some of those buses, and happily admitted to voting (sometimes several times) because "It's a fun day out with my friends, and it's what we need to do to keep on livin'."
There's no doubt in my mind that our present national leader, whom should be setting the best possible example, supports and encourages whatever means must be employed to get votes, whether or not those are ethical—or even legal.
I believe that the referenced excerpt from his recent speech was an unconscious admission of his deep-seated hope that many will vote multiple times, which is possible under today's irresponsibly lax voting regulation and administration. If election results, available on or after Nov. 6, show a close popular vote in favor of Mr. Obama, that may well be the result of fraudulent practices, such as were seemingly espoused by the President a couple of days ago: i.e., Vote because of a desire for revenge (rather than for the national good), and vote often!
