    Did you think it's a strong deterrent to those considering future offence against the people?

    Certainly it's a deterrent to the criminal got lynched!

    Re: Death penalty for voter fraud

    I see a bigger issue here. While individual voter fraud is relatively small in overall numbers what the IRS did (we don't need to argue this, the IRS has apologized for what they did, and they are not in the habit of apologizing for things they think they can dance out of) was arguably a much larger overt case of voter suppression. It may be difficult to know just how many Tea Party people did not vote because of it, I suggest it may have been enough to flip the public vote the other way, meaning that the IRS may very well have been used to steal an election. This is why I am so interested in how this turns out. I believe the guilty parties should be charged with at least participation in large scale voter fraud. We need to sort out who the guilty are how ever high up that goes, and consider this charge when it comes to sentencing.

People who are against voter ID because it is so important should also be against firearm registration because owning firearms is equally important. Moreso perhaps, as the RIGHT to keep and bear is specifically listed in the Constitution as a right and voting is not.

    A handful of prostitutes and a few backroom gamblers don't make a charge of racketeering. There's a big difference between voter fraud, a one-person offense, and election tampering, too. What you're talking about is election tampering, not voter fraud.

    Sounds like these "miscreants" should be common as horse turds, so identify a large number, with links.

    There were MANY more pages of links of those FOUND GUILTY.

    I'm certain MANY more never charged ARE guilty.


    I think even ONE case of vote fraud is one too many.

    I would discourage it in the most SEVERE manner!

If the "elected leader" has been in office that long, then I seriously doubt there is going to be someone there to charge him or execute him for voter fraud. Perhaps he could take things into his own hands and have a revolution or something. Some would say that it is right and/or duty to do so.

    It is reasonable for you to ask for evidence, but if convictions are you sole measure of a problem, you are being narrow minded.
    So your pious concern for voter fraud is because of Cambodia. got it.
