    My point is simply that if the person casting his vote is not who he claims to be, then this is a problem. By voting, he would be stealing a vote from somebody else.
    I do see your point But shouldn't stealing anything be some sort of a crime.

    As of now...I'm not seeing any evidence that there is an actual problem. At least not to any significance. Significant would mean that there is an altering effect. Or that the change in results is obvious and verifiable.

    I have as of late heard a lot of doomsayers make claims of a terrible incident of voter fraud....but they don't provide any significant evidence...just scattered incidents.

    It is notable that those on the far wrong side, which is the side that most obviously would benefit from voter fraud, are those who most vehemently deny that there is or could be any such problem, regardless of what evidence they are ever shown to the contrary.


    I know of one example. The 1996 California 46th Congressional District election. Loretta Sanchez, running for Congress against incumbent Bob Dornan, ran a campaign that specifically encouraged illegal aliens to vote for her. She won the election by a very narrow margin—less than a thousand votes. An investigation found that there were at least six hundred of those votes that were cast illegally, by non-citizens (not enough to overturn the election result), and there were some credible indications that there may have been as many as 4700 illegal votes, but these were not adequately investigated.

    Regardless of whatever else one believes, one has to admit that there is a very strong likelihood that the outcome of this election was changed by voter fraud.

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
