    THIS IS the result of voter fraud and political bosses in national committees "hand picking" convention delegates, and rigged voting machines.

    Obviously I didn't talk to a LARGE percentage of the population. But I was appalled at the LARGE % of those I DID talk to who had lost faith in the election system, were discouraged and so effectively disenfranchised.

    THAT'S why I think vote fraud, high handed political bosses, and vote machine hackers, DESERVE the severest of punishment when caught.

    They are helping to destroy this country.

    That's treason.
    I've never seen any worthwhile evidence that voter fraud by persons at the polls are substantial enough to alter the outcome of an election.

    Gerrymandering by politicians is way more the problem.

    We have numerous problems that make elections fraudulent. Gerrymandering is INDEED one.
    People voting in multiple states during the same election is another.
    people voting as deceased citizens, people mailing in multiple ballots, people rigging vote machines, people ignoring votes, or deliberately LOSING votes, all are significant.

    We NEED to fix the system.

    The democrats yell fraud the loudest when THEY lose.

    Let's fix the system for a fair vote for ALL of us.

    Remember success is in the details.
    the old example, For lack of a horseshoe nail, this small detail extrapolated into loss of the war.

    Voter IDs is a good start.

    No, because the punishment does not fit the crime. Plus, it's extreme to the level of being completely retarded.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Re: Death penalty for voter fraud

    Putting someone in jail at the cost to the public of a couple hundred thousand per year to maintain each inmate, seems retarded to me.

    You've listed and made claims of a number of ways individual voters are fraudulently affecting election outcomes without providing any sources. I haven't seen any proof of individuals making the impact on elections in the ways you describe.

    Well, if every vote counts, then every illegitimate vote counts too.

    You were repeatedly asked for evidence that there is a voter election fraud problem which warrants governmental action. You are impotent to provide any and make it a point to not provide any. The obvious conclusion is there and it is that you have no verifiable evidence to present despite being afforded multiple opportunities to state your case.

    Re: Death penalty for voter fraud

    This thread has turned into the usual partisan finger pointing:

    We should do something because of X.
    No we shouldn't, you can't show me verifiable evidence of X.
    Here is some evidence of X.
    Option 1: That isn't really evidence.
    Option 2: That is a partisan source, nobody pays attention to them.
    Option 3: That's only 1 case, not evidence of a widespread issue.
    Option 4: crickets.

    For those seeking such evidence, define the criteria that would be accepted as evidence. What quantity is necessary for voter fraud to be considered an issue to be considered and what definition of voter fraud is being used?
