Winston Churchill, a wise man, said “A lie gets half way around the world before the truth gets its pants on.” The dems and the media take advantage of that. They say something, knowing it is a lie. Then, if they are caught, they issue a correction. Not only does the correction not go anywhere, the media continues to quote the lie even after the correction is issued. So the truth dies while the lie lives on, a fact the liberal media is well aware of. The liberals prefer to believe the lie, regardless of how unbelievable it is.
The democrats are surprised that someone wants to influence elections. Actually, it is over a hundred years old. During Reconstruction (what they called the time rebuilding the South after the Civil War) it was rampant. It was the primary reason for the formation of the pole taxes, literacy tests and the KKK. People from the North went into the South and paid Black people to vote… 8 or 9 times. (I will give you 2 guesses as to whom they wanted them to vote for, and the first one doesn’t count.)
Almost immediately after the advent of the Soviet Union, the communists tried to affect far more than our elections as well as hundreds of others…including Germany. One of Hitler’s main adversaries was the Bolsheviks, Soviets. By the late sixties they virtually took control of our colleges. They were the primary source of the anti-Vietnam war movement and I have not heard one complaint from the democrats about that.
To a lesser degree, they affected our politics during WWII. After the war, they came within an inch of taking control of this country. They have had their nose in our politics ever since. To be sure, Khrushchev made it clear that he would take over our government without firing a shot. I can’t remember who it was, but there was one commie that said that he who counts the ballots wins the election. Even a moderately intelligent sixth grader likely knows the meaning of those statements.
When Kennedy was elected, it was clear that someone in Chicago decided to count the ballots. Possibly, if there was a recount, the results of the election might have come out differently. For the sake of national unity, Nixon told them not to do the recount.
To this day, precincts are reporting irregularities. Oddly results are always overwhelmingly democrat. Though it doesn’t take a genius to figure that out, proving anything can be difficult or impossible.
Several times, Obama said that there was no need to look into voter fraud. There’s no cheating. Then, immediately after the vote…guess what…evidence of cheating…by the dems. Then, of course, the first thing they did was yell fraud at the republicans. (The best way to cover your tail feathers is to accuse someone else.)
The fact is, we need to change our voting and registration or we will be as the third world countries. I suggest that registration should be in person and separate from any auto license bureau. Upon registration, a message should be sent to all other states to ensure that the voter is dropped from their registers.
When the person registers, a photo ID should be issued, which should be required to vote. To ensure validity, there should have magnetic strip that contains the written info on the card. When the card is presented to vote, the info on the card should be updated with the current date. It would prevent the card from being used multiple times. Finally, when a person dies, a message should be sent to all states to keep anyone from voting or registering by that name.
I know. It is a lot. But if we don’t do something, the votes of honest people won’t mean a thing. It is a sorry state of affairs that we should need to do such things, but, as we just found out, there are people trying to steal our elections.
Certainly, there should be stiff penalties for voter fraud. The laws should be especially stiff for those that are involved in gross voter fraud. We should never have 2000 votes in a precinct with 1800 voters. If there ever is such a thing, it should prompt an immediate federal investigation.
Oh yes. I have one more suggestion, the most important. All ballots should be paper. Electronic voting is too easily altered. Worse, recounts mean nothing. Recounts of paper ballots can verify everything, including vote count.
