ANYONE WHO THINKS THAT NEVER IN AMERICA WOULD TOWN ELECTION OFFICIALS STEAL AN ELECTION SHOULD WATCH THIS SHORT VIDEO DRAMATIZING A REAL EVENT: THE 1946 BATTLE OF ATHENS, TENNESSEE
The Battle of Athens (sometimes called the McMinn County War) was a rebellion led by citizens in Athens and Etowah, Tennessee, United States, against the local government in August 1946. The citizens, including some World War II veterans, accused the local officials of political corruption and voter intimidation. The event is sometimes cited by firearms ownership advocates as an example of the value of the Second Amendment in combating tyranny.
For more info go to Wikipedia here.
However, for some reason Wikipedia doesn't tell it all. The GIs returning from WW II knew from past experience that elections were being stolen in Athens (by Democratic officials), and for that reason they created the "GI Party" composed of both Republicans and Democrats and announced publicly that there would be no more stolen elections. After the battle, the votes were hand counted in public revealing public's will that all of the corrupt incumbent officials be removed from office.
The GIs who launched the battle were not prosecuted. Moreover, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt wrote in her nationally syndicated column that when free people are denied the right to have their votes counted as they were cast, despots should expect that they will rise up.See also http://impactglassman.blogspot.mx/2012/02/bernie-ellis-american-patriot-speaks.html
