The Concerned Taxpayers of Calloway County, also known as The Tea Party, featured a guest speaker at their meeting at the Calloway County Public Library Monday night.
Retired minister David Roos, event organizer of the Tea Party started the event by saying the immoral attitude of the government today is reason enough to educate about pertinent issues such as voter fraud.
“If we don’t straighten up our act, we will be in the same shape in three years as Greece is today,” he said.
Winfield Rose, featured speaker and professor of humanities and fine arts, spoke about voter fraud throughout history.
Rose prefaced his speech by saying he had no negative comments on the local government, he said Calloway County’s elections were done honorably. He did say however, other places in Kentucky were not as honorable, as well as many other places in the country.
“Fraud is described as deceit or trickery for profit or dishonest advantage,” he said.
Rose said fraud was as old as democracy itself, and the voting system throughout the country was replete with opportunities for dishonesty.
According to Rose, there are several ways voting fraud could occur. Among the ways voter fraud could occur is methods of voting multiple times, vote buying and selling and the hacking of electronic voting machines.
Rose said he had confidence in the methods of voting used in Calloway County, and that he would do all in his power to defeat Obama.
Rose suggested in order to combat voter fraud the government needs to establish stronger voter authorization, to require government issued identification.
The meeting was focused on the featured speakers discussion, but also had discussion on the need to repeal Obamacare and to retire Barack Obama.
