    Re: Stein's push to request a recount in Pennsylvania

    From Stein's website:

    If we raise more than what's needed, the surplus will also go toward election integrity efforts and to promote voting system reform. This is what we did with our surplus in 2004. https://jillstein.nationbuilder.com/recount

    Hmmm, what reforms does she mean? Let me guess--she doesn't mean voter ID.

    trying to over turn the constitution is what she means.

    I really hope you're wrong.

    Personally, I'd like the voter registration/identification system to work something like the following:

    All citizens are eligible to vote, no registration needed. Ideally, party-specific registration for primaries is no longer used, instead:

    At least a month before the first primary, every citizen eligible to vote would be sent an ID card. This ID card is specific to the voting machine system used (would require all voting machines in state to be identical, or at least all accept the ID card format), and can only be used in one election cycle (once for primary, once for election).

    This eliminates issues with people forgetting to register, or issues with the records of such.
    Since the ID card would only allow voting in one primary, you could set the voting machine/system to allow only one party's ballot, to prevent someone voting in both (unless there's an open primary...primaries are different state to state, damnit).

    Or...something like that.

    If you made the ID also a photo ID, it could be compared to the face of the person presenting it at the polls, to prevent voter fraud in that way.

    And the downsides are that everyone would need to remember their voter card.
    OR a system in place to accept mail-in voter cards, if you some how combined them with ballots.




    But ideals and reality do not often match.

    Damnit.

    Here's hoping that if there truly is a voting problem, work begins on fixing it NOW, four years in advance of the next election.

    Trump ought to make an example out of Hillary for her sore loser idiocy

    I guess you have never heard the phrase never bite the hand that feeds you.
    Hillary broke what most people consider a done deal.

    She stuck her nose where it didn't belong and is attempting to thwart
    A legal election.
