Historians refer to a special kind of revolution where a totalitarian regime is democratically installed: it is called a "Coup de Prague".
We have just experienced one here. The band is still playing, the Captain is drinking his tea, and no one seems to be looking for the lifeboats - or even care for that matter.
Czechoslovakia, 1948: in a general election, the Communists are elected and quietly, overnight, the old Republic is dismantled. Communist bureaucrats and officials take the reins of power and the nation remains in the stranglehold of socialism for forty years.
So what happened here in 2008?
By the numbers:
64.5 million for Obama
56.8 million for McCain
Let's take a look at some of those liberal votes in light of fraud and illegal aliens. Examining these is a slippery subject. But we can estimate to some degree.
In Georgia, it was discovered that over 100,000 voter registrations were from people outside the state. Extrapolated across the United States, we are looking at potentially 6.5 million votes.
Of the 15 to 20 million illegal aliens in the country, it is estimated by David Simcox that 2.7 million participated in this election. Many have a saying: "If we don't vote, they will kick us out!" Thank goodness for Bill Clinton's Motor-Voter initiative of 1993.
ACORN has registered millions of "voters" in the past few years. Many voting districts reported recently of having more registered voters than voting-age residents!
With all that being said, we are looking at potentially 9.2 million fraudulent votes - the vast majority going Democrat. No addition was made for ACORN, which would push the total higher. Only 7.7 million votes separated McCain from Obama.
This wasn't an election. It was peaceful Socialist revolution. Perhaps we should refer to President Obama as "His Fraudulency". But not too loudly...
