Root Claims Massive Voter Fraud

Wayne Allen Root, a birther and major conspiracy monger who was once the vice presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party, put out a video commentary a few weeks ago claiming that Obama only won in 2012 because “Democratic voters across this country are voting four times, five times, 10 times each for the Democrats.” His only support for this is the ridiculous myth about voting in Philadelphia, which has been debunked even by True the Vote, the anti-voter fraud group.

    If I remember correctly, all swing states in 2012 had a Republican governor, a Republican Attorney General or a Republican Secretary of State, sometimes all three. One wonders how all this fraud got past them.

    Root did a gambling show for Spike, King of Vegas, back in 2006. At the time it was claimed the show had done well enough for a second season to be produced, but it never happened.

    In the State of Virginia, the Rethuglicans held all three statewide offices, the House of Delegates, and had effective control of the State Senate. Boy, ole Koo Koo Ken Cuccinelli, who was attorney general must have been completely incompetent to allow such widespread voter fraud to get by him!

    Look, it stands to reason that the Democrats must have cheated because all True Americans™ are Republicans and, therefore, must outnumber the Democrats. After all, every one Root knows is a Republican ….

    Shorter Wayne Allen Root: Folks, we are being scammed. Democrats are winning elections through what appears to be massive voter fraud — in a sliver of votes.

    Well, then, we’d better find that massive voter and indict him or her for fraud. But who could it be? Haystacks Calhoun? Andre the Giant? (No, they died.) Rosey Grier?

    Oh, Root also says Obama should be impeached for this. And he can be — because, Ukraine!

    Standard right-wing drivel.

    Dang, I only got to vote 3 times. I feel cheated.

    I think I understand what he was saying. He who has the gold,makes the rules. Therefor he who rules has the gold. Let me try a couple and see if I have the idea. He who eats the food gets full. Therefor, he who is full ate the food. He who has the car drives. Therefor, he who drives, has a car. I’m sorry gentleman but that is impeccable logic. You can’t argue with that. Let’s try one more. He who gets the votes, is elected. Therefor, impeach Obama. The tides come in……………

    ‘”That’s like saying” the Dormouse added sleepily “I breathe when I sleep, is the same as I sleep when I breathe”

    “It’s the same for you!” said the March Hare stuffing the Dormouse into a teapot’.

    It’s called a converse error. the equivalent to ‘I breathe when I sleep’ is ‘when I don’t breathe, I don’t sleep’.

    Or more formally: If ‘A is B’ then ‘not B is not A’.
