As more time passes and we get a chance to focus our hindsight on what happened in Arizona it’s becoming more and more obvious that disturbing is a better description than democracy for what took place there.
Five things that went horribly wrong in Arizona
Maricopa County is the fourth most populous county in the United States with a population of 3,817,117. In 2012 Maricopa county had 200 polling places for people to vote. In 2018 they reduced that number to 60. That’s an average of one polling site for every 21,000 voters.
Luckily the media didn’t let the 70% drop in polling places keep them from calling the state for Hillary with less than 1% of the population reporting.
Guess all these people still waiting in line to vote don’t count.
“That’s cray!” you might be exclaiming to yourself. How is something like that possible? Much of what guided the “experts” to call Arizona so early was the results of the mail-in/early voting ballots. Early voting is dominated by an older female demographic. For example, only 7 percent of early voting was cast by voters under the age of 30.
Here’s a breakdown of some of the numbers.
These are the stats used to project that Hillary was likely to do well in Arizona. But the simple fact is that when a half a million new voters have registered and are waiting in line to have their voice heard it’s way too soon to be calling a winner for anyone. Guess those 500,000 new voters waiting in line for hours don’t count either.
All of this isn’t even touching on the reports of people being disenfranchised either by incompetence or something more nefarious, you be the judge of that.
Leaders from the Arizona branch of the Democratic Party have confirmed that its lawyers are officially making an inquiry after multiple Democratic voters showed up to the polls only to find that they were listed as independents, Republicans, or had no party affiliation at all.
Many voters wound up having to wait in line under the hot Arizona sun only to find that they were ineligible to vote for the candidates of their choice. To add insult to injury, the polling locations have been so poorly planned that many voters had to wait in line up to four hours before finding out that their information had been improperly filed.
Fortunately you don’t have to take anyone’s word for it. There’s video evidence of this happening as well.
I posted earlier about my being denied my legal right to vote this morning. I went to the Pima County Recorders office and video taped the whole thing. Here’s what they are doing. They are copying voter registration cards changing the date and the party preference. They can’t change the original because that goes out to the party. At first she tried to say I sent in a second voter registration card (of course I didn’t not) then she changes her story to its a computer glitch then states it’s an error.
This person was comfortable enough to step up and address the error and make sure that it was corrected. Many people will do whatever they can to avoid confrontation of any sort and would likely have just accepted their fate and walked away. Sadly, we’ll never know how many people this actually happened to.
In every state that Independents have outnumbered Democrats, Bernie has won so every error like the one above benefits Hillary and Hillary alone.
People don’t fully understand just how easy it is to write a database script to modify large sets of data in a matter of seconds or less.
Search for independent voters that have recently changed to dem, randomly select a % of them to be changed to lower the delegate loss and still seem on the books so they could tout it as a resounding victory.
The most-recent official roster has 37 percent (or 1.219 million) of registered Arizona voters declared as independents; 34 percent (or 1.115 million) as Republicans; and 28 percent (or 932,722) as Democrats.
THERE ARE MORE INDEPENDENTS THAN DEMOCRATS. That scared the sh*t out of the Clinton campaign, given Sanders has trounced her with independents in every state.
There have already been calls and promises for investigations and follow-ups to make sure that everything was on the up and up in Arizona, but we all know how well those things go. Nothing that happened during this election was a mistake. It was all carefully choreographed and we’re seeing the results of that dance with the devil.
