“Fraud and falsehood dread examination. Truth invites it.”-Samuel Johnson
A 2005 bipartisan commission concluded that mail-in ballots “remain the largest source of potential voter fraud.”
In 2020, the pandemic was conveniently used as an excuse to require mail-in ballots be sent nationwide to every citizen on the voter rolls. The voter rolls were not current and contained the names of many who had moved or died.
Voter Fraud is Real
In 2008, the Supreme Court upheld Indiana’s voter ID law. The Court’s reasoning was “flagrant examples of fraud have been documented throughout this Nation’s history by respected historians and journalists. Fraud is real and can affect the outcome of a close election.”
Documented Fraud in the 2020 Election
In Pennsylvania, Democrats used courts to change the state’s Election Code to expand mail-in voting, add drop boxes, and relax verification standards for mailed ballots.
In Arizona, the law requires that to be considered valid, ballots must be received by 7 PM on Election Day. In Maricopa County, more than 20,000 ballots were delivered by the Postal Service after Election Day. Over 19,000 of these late ballots were accepted. Biden won Arizona by 10,457 votes.
In Wisconsin, Mark Zuckerberg illegally paid Democratic political operatives to take over the administration of the election of five of Wisconsin’s largest cities. There was also rampant fraud in nursing homes where staff illegally assisted residents in marking their ballots.
On a national basis, the documentary “2000 Mules” shows videos of 2,200 people stuffing multiple ballots into drop boxes in 5 cities. These “mules” visit 20 to 45 drop boxes each and drop off an average of 5 ballots in each drop box.
Voters Want Their Old System Back
An I&I/TIPP Poll taken from December 7 to December 9, 2022, asked 1,094 registered voters for their opinions on requiring Photo IDs to vote, putting limits on mail-in ballots, and banning ballot harvesting.
83 percent of the voters said they would support requiring voters to show a photo ID to vote. This was strongly tripartisan with 74 percent of democrats, 93 percent of Republicans, and 84 percent of Independents in support of this proposal.
69 percent supported limits on mail-in voting. The breakdown was 59 percent of Democrats, 83 percent of Republicans, and 69 percent of Independents in support of this proposal.
Banning ballot harvesting was supported by 54 percent of the voters. The breakdown was 54 percent of Democrats, 66 percent of Republicans, and 54 percent of Independents in favor of banning ballot harvesting.
Americans of all political parties want voting rules tightened up to make elections fairer and more transparent. COVID can no longer be considered a sufficient reason to alter our election laws.
Changes Made Since 2020
The 2020 election was a massive wake-up call for conservative Americans. In the months leading up to it, Democrats forced through changes to hundreds of laws and processes governing how elections are conducted.
The rule-change scheme was run by Marc Elias, a Democrat election attorney who also ran his party’s Russia collusion hoax. Some 2020 changes were made legally. Frequently the changes were affected by getting a friendly state or local official to change the rules.
The 2020 Democrat election plan was to flood the country with tens of millions of unsupervised mail-in ballots, have Zuckerberg fund the private takeover of government elections offices to run Democrat-focused get-out-the-vote operations, and have the media and Big Tech suppress news that hurt the Democrats.
Since 2020, laws have been passed improving voter ID and other election security measures. Also, bans were imposed on so-called Zuckbucks being used for the private takeover of government elections offices.
In-person voting is the norm. It has always been the norm and needs to continue being the norm. The more hands a ballot must pass through, voters have less confidence in the outcome.
Democrats are working harder to change the election system than to change voters’ minds because they do not care what the voter thinks. They just want to win.
