Republicans Target Obama's Base

In light of what the GOP is trying to pull off against the American people again in a Presidential election on the surface seems blatantly transparent to those of us with a semi functioning cerebral cortex but what is going on behind the scenes is what frightens me.

On the outside, with the smear campaigns and the personal attacks against Obama and Biden, with the selection of the least qualified but young and pretty VP candidate, with their refusal to campaign on issues, and all the other shock and awe tactics they have and have yet to employ, show how desperate the Republican party is and what depths they will sink to "win" another presidential election.

The Republicans have taken the election process and transformed it into something that barely resembles its former self, just as they have done with the Constitution. Republicans from coast to coast are trying to stack the deck against the Democrats by purging voters most likely to vote for Obama from the voting registrations.

Mainly targeting middle class, lower income and minority communities, they are pulling out all stops to minimize the votes that Obama is expected to receive. As evidenced by the Republican Party's actions in Michigan. The chairman of the Republican Party in Macomb County Michigan, a key swing county in a key swing state, is planning to use a list of foreclosed homes to block people from voting in the upcoming election as part of the state GOP's effort to challenge some voters on Election Day.

State election rules allow parties to assign "election challengers" to polls to monitor the election. In addition to observing the poll workers, these volunteers can challenge the eligibility of any voter provided they "have a good reason to believe" that the person is not eligible to vote. One allowable reason is that the person is not a "true resident of the city or township."

The rules further state that you can't challenge people without a factual basis for doing so. I personally don't think a foreclosure notice is sufficient basis for a challenge, because people often remain in their homes after foreclosure begins and sometimes are able to negotiate and refinance.

This pathetic strategy shows just how desperate the Republicans are.
They are scared of a President the caliber of Obama. Obama will hold these criminals accountable for their past transgressions and crimes against the American people and they are desperately trying to avoid sharing the same fate as lobbyist Jack Abramoff and other fallen Republican scoundrels.
I can see them all scurrying about, trying desperately to cling to that last bit of debris from their sinking Republican ship to avoid drowning in a sea of accountability for the crimes they have committed. They are all traitors and should be treated as such.

All elected officials are sworn to duty to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Republicans fall far short of that duty. As a matter of fact, they have gone out of their way to destroy the very document that represents the foundation of America, the same document that they were elected to defend and protect.

But the ultimate power does not rest in the hands of the Republicans. Nor do the Democrats hold all the cards. We The People have the power. We have the power to elect true American leaders into our governing positions from President all the way down to local townships.
We just need to exercise that power and take back control of what was once the greatest nation in the world.
