This must be why Democrats fight Voter ID laws. Voter Fraud helps them win. An election system that allows this I have very little faith in. There is no way to know if a candidate actually won or if his win was due to cheating the system. There will always be a cloud over a candidate that wins a close race. One will never know what the outcome would have been if the election had been fair and just. But as long as fraud is possible and it benefits one party or the other, the party it benefits will do everything within its power to retain it while the other party will be hollering for fair elections.
Former Georgian and Federal Election Commission member Hans von Spakovsky writes in the Wall Street Journal that voter fraud is an actual problem.
"Many states run a rickety election process, lacking rules to deter people who are looking to take advantage of the system's porous security," he writes.
"And too many groups and individuals - including the NAACP, the American Civil Liberties Union and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder - are doing everything they can to prevent states from improving the integrity of the election process."
Von Spakovsky, co-author of "Obama's Enforcer: Eric Holder's Justice Department," points to recent instances in Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Connecticut and Tennessee where people have been charged with, or pleaded guilty to, voter fraud.
And in North Carolina, "more than 100 illegal aliens, still in the country thanks to the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, registered to vote," he writes.
With tight races in many places across the country where elections are determined by a single vote or by breaking a tie, it's important to ferret out voter fraud, according to von Spakovsky, who notes 16 local races in Ohio that were decided by one vote or through a tie-breaker in 2014 and another 35 the year before.
"Voting by noncitizens alone could swing such races," he says.
"A new study by two Old Dominion University professors, based on survey data from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study, found that 6.4 percent of all noncitizens voted illegally in the 2008 presidential election, and 2.2 percent voted in the 2010 midterms.
"Since 80 percent of noncitizens vote Democratic, according to the survey, the authors concluded that these illegal votes were 'large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections.'
"Those that might have been skewed by noncitizen votes included Al Franken 's 312-vote win in the Minnesota race for the U.S. Senate. As a senator, Mr. Franken would cast the 60th vote needed to make Obamacare law."
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
No because we have a tendency to want people to do things for us rather than do them ourselves. Politicians buy votes with their actions and that means spending money telling people it is for their own good and benefit. Liberalism has created a dependency that I am afraid will never be destroyed
