This is just nuts

It looks like this sterling example of American citizenship got more than his fair share of the change we can believe in.
"Sometimes, they come up and bribe me with a cigarette, or they'll give me a dollar to sign up," said Freddie Johnson, 19, who filled out 72 separate voter-registration cards over an 18-month period at the behest of the left-leaning Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. (ACORN)

ACORN is under investigation in Ohio and at least eight other states - including Missouri, where the FBI said it's planning to look into potential voter fraud - for over-the-top efforts to get as many names as possible on the voter rolls regardless of whether a person is registered or eligible.
Aren't you heartened to see that Obama hasn't left his Chicago-political-machine roots behind? What would an Illinois candidacy mean without significant voter fraud? (Especially by the pros at ACORN.)*

Of course, I think citizens should bring their land of primary residence into the voting booth. That's why this coming Sunday's lectionary text from the Gospel is so important to read right now.

What is your true homeland? How are you going to carry that into the American political process?
