    Don't evade, answer. Why do it? What's the point of it?

    The point is to make money without doing the work. Some worker many orders of magnitude above your level, i.e. a homeless man, signs up with Acorn to get paid for each registration he signs up. Then he has an epiphany: I COULD MAKE THEM UP!!! So he gets paid for mythical persons "registering," and gets a nice check in lieu of being clever. And indeed there's fraud: of Acorn's management; also the Obama Campaign, who paid for something they did not get.

    And thus the amount of actual "voter" fraud = 0. But the GOP did not need to let that get in their way of getting pinheads riled up, not that it matters, since in the last six presidential elections, they got a slim majority of the national vote exactly 1 time, despite their sleazy tricks.

    Pure.

    funny thing is that I'm neither, let alone in combination ... but you've been wrong about virtually everything else, so why not about that as well? ... BUT, and this will come as much of a shock to you as it will to everyone on these threads, you were inadvertently actually partly right about the voting participation of blacks, at least in the last election. If I'm not mistaken, I believe that this was first election that blacks voted at a rate higher than whites ... let's hope that continues, no? Well, maybe you don't see that as a good thing, because you know as well as I do that blacks will not vote GOP anytime soon ...

    You're still evading, or, incapable of analytic thought. Why are they paying the homeless guy to do it? Further, why are you trying to claim it wasn't acorn employees doing it and deflecting to the "homeless guy". (Fictitious homeless guy, by the way)

    Well, Lenny, blacks are voting at higher rates (not higher than whites yet) and the black vote going to the GOP is also increasing. It may take awhile, but eventually the blinders will be removed...as more and more young brothers and sisters come to the realization that the hand holding the check is also holding a leash.

    No, you didn't. Your made up scenario does not explain why ACORN, proven to be complicit in the fraud, submitted fraudulent registrations. Why did they do it?
