October 20

Let the GOP muck-a-mucks across the nation who are participating in a nationwide RNC/McCain diversionary campaign against ACORN be warned: In a new administration of light and truth – instead of Cheney’s dark shadows and Bush’s lies – you may be subject to prosecution for participating in a criminal conspiracy to suppress votes and violate the Voting Rights Act.

We do not exaggerate.

The unrelenting and profoundly dishonest and misleading attempt to brand a national community organizing group as some sort of minority enterprise of ghetto thieves is nothing more than a GOP tradition of using ACORN as a scapegoat to justify voter suppression. And organized voter suppression is a crime. In fact, a creative prosecutor under Obama could apply the RICO Act to the RNC/McCain daily deluge of attempts to get voters to believe that ACORN is engaged in voter fraud and then using that cover to disenfranchise voters. Yea, we get it. Under Obama all freedom of speach will be illegal unless the ideas, beliefs and feelings are in line with the great god Obama.

2. They weren't prosecuted for treason
when they went against Clinton's push to get Osama bin Laden, why should they prosecuted for this?

3. But if they endorse Obama all their crimes are forgiven and "redeemed"!
Forget laws, crimes, and conspiracies, you're just a hateful, revengeful, bitter theorist who can't move on!
Two more paragraphs from that link.

And the soon-to-be former Bush Administration, DOJ, McCain Campaign and RNC officials who played roles in planning and enabling this effort to limit the right of Americans to vote (the poor, minorities and students, in particular) will have to comply with subpoenas to testify before Congress.

If Obama wins by a landslide – which is a possibility – and the election is not close enough to steal for the GOP, many Republicans participating in this assault might rue the day that they participated in ProsecutorGate II, which really was itself only the diabolical extension of the Rove/Jeb Bush Florida campaign of 2000 and Ohio campaign of 2004.

Moonbats are chomping at the bit, they just can't wait to have a fascist state just as soon as possible.
frree speech, indivualism, justice , reality and sanity will be on the most wanted list; Joe The Plumber will be shot as an enemy of the state.

When they cause the first injustice, the Rebels will be born.


Keep your powder dry, your sword sharp and wits intact.

The dark storm is closing in on us.

I don't think I've ever seen a more apt description of DU.

See, I'm starting to almost want to see what Barry Sotero's presidency will look like, if only to laugh my ass off when these morons realise what they've unleashed upon this country. :p

Just wait if Obama is elected. Within a month the Dummies will be calling for his head on a platter - just like they've turned on Pelosi and Reid. DUmmies are NEVER happy - it's not in their nature to live without hate. They are like the Star Trek creature who lived off of hatred. Without hatred, the DUmmies cannot survive.

Did you all catch the subtle religious overtones?


In a new administration of light and truth

Obama brings light and truth.

So the DU is saying that Obama is the Lightbringer?

Interesting.
