Before all the votes can be counted, before the headline can be written, (perhaps because of their concern that Barack Obama will really take the election) the TeaParty.org has put out a red alert to warn Americans of the likelihood of fraud by the media to keep Obama in office.
There was probably an audible gasp at the possibility that our media could be caught 'red handed fixing the election' as the Tea Party suggests.
In a scathing report that is drenched with disdain for the president, the TeaParty.org warns Americans that the fix is in and the media will rig the numbers to guarantee Obama will be re-elected.
Is such a claim possible? Could their be a conspiracy to rob Mitt Romney of his rightful victory? Read for yourself:
‘Are the Lame Stream Media and the Obamites planning to strip the American people of their precious votes?’ is the question presented and answered with an ‘ABSOLUTELY’ in the article.
One might question whether this Tea Party viewpoint is the result of consuming too much tea (Long Island, iced) or smoking too much tea of another sort because the allegation is ludicrous. Or is it?
Wait. What about that thing with the hanging chads in Florida when G.W. Bush took the election from Al Gore based on questionable procedures when counting ballots? Is it possible that one man could be so well connected that on election day he is a sure bet? Is this voting for the president just a farce and the fix is in?
The choice between which millionaire to vote for in 2012 is difficult. It is not a question of race relations, even though the candidates are of different races. With the choice between the devil you know and the other devil you know, the decision comes down to a personal question: Which candidate likes me?
The debates have demonstrated that there are two different paths that each candidate would take America on in the future. Both candidates are qualified to be commander in chief, but only one seems to ’like’ the ‘47% who will never take responsibility for themselves.’
If you are registered to vote and have not voted early or have not used a mail in ballot, please get out there tomorrow and vote. Do your part to support this experiment in democracy while we can. There is a familiar quote that bears repeating; to paraphrase: All that is necessary for evil to thrive is that the good to do nothing. The Tea Party is very busy.
