On Voter Fraud

I rarely re-print articles by other writers, but this one I think is worth repeating, even if it comes from a pro-GOP blog.  First off, let me say that I have no objection to requiring that everyone who wants to vote in an American election must show proof that:

1) S/he is an American citizen,
2) S/he really is who s/he says s/he is,
3) S/he really lives where s/he says s/he lives, and--
4) S/he is at least 18 years old.

Does anybody have a problem with that? 

As to whether there is persistent and widespread voter fraud in the USA, well, I was born and raised next door to Newark, New Jersey, and I lived and worked in grassroots politics for 12 years in Chicago.  'Nuff said?

With no more ado:

Dems Successfully Hide Voter Fraud

This week, President Donald Trump ended his Commission on Voter Fraud and the way the mainstream media are reporting it, makes it sound like there wasn’t any significant voter fraud uncovered, but that’s far from the truth. All it really means is that Democrats in a number of states refused to turn over any information that would prove Trump’s allegation of widespread voter fraud.

Not all of the states that refused to cooperate were Democratic led, as some states led by Republicans also refused to cooperate, but those states were largely angry that a non-politician who refuses to play their political swamp games won.
Trump tweeted about his decision to disband the commission, writing:

“Many mostly Democrat States refused to hand over data from the 2016 Election to the Commission On Voter Fraud. They fought hard that the Commission not see their records or methods because they know that many people are voting illegally. System is rigged, must go to Voter I.D..”
“As Americans, you need identification, sometimes in a very strong and accurate form, for almost everything you do…..except when it comes to the most important thing, VOTING for the people that run your country. Push hard for Voter Identification!”   
At this point, everyone needs to ask why Democrats have fought so hard against voter identification?
When a number of states passed voter identification laws, Obama’s crooked Justice Department took the states to court where liberal judges appointed by Obama ruled the voter ID laws to be unconstitutional.
I’ve had opportunity to discuss this with some Democrats and easily destroyed all of their arguments against voter fraud.
Most of them used the excuse used by Obama’s Justice Department, claiming that requiring voter ID is discriminatory against minorities and poor people. To this, I ask why it’s discriminatory and they say that many minorities and poor people are unable to obtain a valid voter ID. To which, I ask if most of these people receive any form of government assistance and they admit that most do. To which, I ask if they need some form of identification in order receive that assistance and they admit they do. That’s when I ask why it’s okay to require an ID for assistance but not to vote, especially when voting is a constitutional right and obligation and receiving assistance is not?
Then I take them to the part of minorities. Former Attorney General Eric Holder claimed that voter identification discriminated against minorities, especially black Americans. To this I ask why aren’t black Americans capable of obtaining a voter ID I’m told them aren’t able to travel to the locations where the IDs are handed out. To this, I ask if they are capable of traveling to a welfare office, traveling to a store, to a doctor and other places, so why aren’t they able to travel to the location necessary to obtain a voter ID, especially when voting is so important.
What difference does a voter ID make?
In the 2012 and 2014 elections, there were numerous incidents of voter fraud. There were numerous incidents where Democrats were instructing people how to vote more than once or in more than one state.
Between the 2014 and 2016 elections, several states, including California, passed laws that automatically registered illegal aliens and other non-citizens to vote, even though they cannot legally vote. More than one outfit claimed that over 3 million illegal votes were cast in the 2016 election, most of which were Democrats.
Even the Washington Post, known for not being supportive of President Donald Trump or the Republican Party, claimed that there was evidence of voter fraud.
If, in fact those claims are true, then Donald Trump also would have won the popular vote as well as the Electoral College vote, which is why so many states, especially Democratic controlled states like California refused to cooperate with Trump’s commission on voter fraud. They obviously had something to hide and with the disbanding of the commission, it appears they succeeded.

I also would like to make damn sure that every eligible voter who votes votes ONCE!

Heheheheh. I haven't lived in Chicago for 30 years, but to all accounts I'm still voting there!

Another thing that needs doing is cross-checking the SSNs of would-be voters against the registry of those who have received the benefit that one gets when one dies from Social Security. Those registries are online and it wouldn't take long.

Of course, the Democratic Party depends on the votes of the Thanato-American community, as well as non-citizens (those present legally and otherwise both), convicted felons (personally, I think that when one is taken off parole after serving a term for felony, voting rights should be restored, but that's another rant entirely) and other non-eligible voters. I'm surprised they haven't rounded up shop mannequins and herded them into polling places.
