Voter Fraud is Real
|The establishment political establishment and main-stream media recently attempted to dismiss President Trump when he called for an investigation of voter fraud in this country. Even former president Barack Obama had to get into the act by calling it "fake news." That certainly runs counter to what the respected and widely quoted Pew Center on the States says. They found that there is “susceptible to fraud” and “evidence that America’s voter registration system needs an upgrade.”|
In fact, Pew’s research showed that “approximately 24 million—one of every eight—voter registrations in the United States are no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate. More than 1.8 million deceased individuals are listed as voters. Approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state.”
So why is there so much opposition to find out how extensive voter fraud is in the U.S?
Regardless of your political affiliation, everyone should be concerned by this threat. In a republic where every vote counts, we must be sure our elections are fair and honest. President Trump has just expressed in public what many people have been saying in private for many years.
So are there any actual examples of voter fraud? Sadly, yes.
Recently, The Detroit News found voting scanning machines at 248 of the city’s 662 precincts – 37 percent – tabulated more ballots than the number of actual voters counted in the poll books. The discovery was made when Green Party 2016 presidential nominee Jill Stein’s called for a recount in Michigan. How ironic is that!
And a few years back the Wall Street Journal reported that “coercion and chicanery are made much easier by the excessive use of absentee ballots. Most of the elections thrown out by courts—Miami, Florida’s mayoral election in 1998, the East Chicago, Indiana’s mayor’s race in 2005—involved fraudulent absentee votes.”
The fact that there are some who want to suppress an investigation of voter fraud makes you wonder if they are profiting due to voter fraud. The President is justified in his call for a broad-based investigation to find the vulnerabilities. We are talking about the foundation to our way of government. And not the type of corrupt voting that occurs in third world countries.
