Front Page Magazine is reporting that Barack Obama won Wood County in Ohio this year with 108% of registered voters. That’s not a typo.
In 2012, 106,258 people in Wood County are registered to vote out of an eligible 98,213. This is not to say that the 108% registered all voted for Obama, just that more people are registered than eligible.
Perhaps even more astonishing is FPM reports that he won 100% of the vote in 21 districts in Cleveland. Think about that… Ohio voters had 7 presidential candidates to choose from, plus the option to write in candidates of their choosing, yet every last voter in 21 districts chose Obama.
Gary Johnson, the candidate for disaffected Libertarians who received 43,479 votes here in Florida, was on the Ohio Ballot. And while Roseanne Barr was not, she did make it on the Florida ballot and the 7,971 misguided souls that voted for her shows that there are always going to be those who choose to follow their own path. Always.
Except in Cleveland, Ohio.
Is that not a stunning consideration? As of early September, voting registration lists totaled 900,135 in Cuyahoga County, which makes up much of the Cleveland metropolitan area, so exactly how many votes do 15 districts represent? Thousands… tens of thousands?
Yet every last one, down to a man voted for Barack Obama – a statistical miracle!
Reports such as this are sure to trickle out around the country for weeks to come. We have become a very sick society and considering the current President of the United States once taught Saul Alinksy in college, who’s philosophy is the ends justify the means, rampant corruption should not come as a surprise.
While you may expect a thorough investigation to be launched, particularly so considering Ohio has a Republican governor, with a negligent media sure to suppress the story and an Obama Administration that can stonewall with the best of them (Fast & Furious, Benghazi), and with the American people ready to move on from the election, this is going nowhere fast.
And as long as the citizens of this country continue to deny the corruption exists, justify it in whatever manner or just look the other way, they are bringing irreparable harm upon future generations, who will ultimately pay the price for this lack of courage.
Unfortunately, any efforts to address the issue end up being hijacked by demagogues, with the Democratic Party typically pushing back for even fewer controls and accusing Republicans of racism and voter suppression, regardless of the proposal put forth.
Times that try men’s souls…
