Yes they should, but we don't have enough prisons to hold every Fraudulent or Illegal voter in the United States.

Life without parole?

Maybe for doubel-voting. But I think that anyone who busses in out of state voters should face a firing squad.

I agree with you in principle, but in this time of massive government spending (and the need to reduce such spending), I would recommend hanging — rope is cheaper and reusable.

That is not enough punishment. I would prefer to render incapable of illegal voting after their release.
Solitary confinement until they went insane sounds better.

I personally think that vote fraud in Michigan is what spurred the legislature to move on right to work. Its probably more effective than pursuing the vote fraud in court which wouldn’t be resolved with any satisfaction.

After all the two democrats who were convicted of vote fraud from 2010 only ended up with probation.

Republicans need not fear vote fraud in perma-blue Maryland. What’s the point? The state is virtually dominated by Democrats who control 70% of the House of Delegates and 75% of the Maryland senate. Republicans are an endangered species.

Glad to see that FoxNews has been following election fraud and has an email address for folks to input on it. Notice that the cases it reported on were all Democrats. It's obvious that the 'Rat party, with their general lack of morality and their lack of respect for election law, accounts for the vast majority of such instances.

But exposing a few cases in local elections where perps from elections from several years ago were actually prosecuted does no justice to the extent and gravity of the problem.

The Foxies should be talking about the 2012 presidential election and bring up the possibility, if not the probability, that Mitt Romney would be President-elect today if not for the unprecedented degree of fraud and cheating at the polls. And the methods used to cheat were much more variable, and in some instances, much more sophisticated (e.g., electronic hacking of voting devices) than the video showed in the cases it described.

Furthermore, the Democrats deliberately and brazenly targeted their fraud efforts in cities and counties of "swing states" in which they dominated the electoral process, such as Philadelphia and Cleveland, so as to get the most impact from their efforts. Just as blatant examples, they reported Romney getting ZERO votes in numerous election districts, and reported more votes in several counties than there were registered voters.

Republicans as a party have to address this issue nationally, or face the prospect of never winning a presidential election again!

Address this issue, we have, we will and still it will do no good EVER. We can't IMPORT enough voters for our side like the Democrats do.

Therefore we do face the prospect of NEVER winning a presidential election again, EVER.

We cannot compete, nor will the GOPe stop the IMPORTING and transporting. Now I see the BIG push for MASS transit across the country.

I detest these election fraudsters at least as much as anyone here, including the high-tech operatives who hack optical scanners and touch screen machines.

But a death penalty is too extreme. Putting these perps in the can for a few years on a consistent basis should be enough to send an adequate message.

One of the multiple aspects of the 'Rat election fraud and cheating operations is getting aliens to the polls to vote for them.

Tamping down on this only requires the guts to enforce existing law by asking for birth certificate or naturalization documents for all voters at the time of registration. Yes, courage is all that is necessary to make a dent in this type of fraud. It's not the answer to all of it, but it will help.

You bet! An honest statistician can tell you that Mitt Romney would likely be the President-elect today had it not been for the 'Rat fraud and cheating that occurred in the past election to an unprecedented extent.

“Republicans as a party have to address this issue nationally, or face the prospect of never winning a presidential election again!”

I wouldn’t call that a realistic prospect. Egregious voter fraud has been with us for a long time. Until about 2000, it was on the wane. Now it’s waxing, again. It used to be SOP for big political machines, such as Richard Daly’s Chicago, Tamany Hall’s NYC, and Lyndon Johnson’s Houston. I remember a 19th Century Novel by one of John Adam’s descendants in which a character vigorously defended voter fraud, claiming that without it Lincoln wouldn’t have gotten a second term. What will happen is, it will get firmly entrenched. Republicans will start doing it, too. Both parties will become equally dirty. Then a reformer will appear, such as Fiorella LaGuardia in NYC, and crusade against corruption and sweep out the machine bosses, and for a while it will no longer be tolerated, and then people will get bored with crusading against corruption and play something else, and it will slowly seep back in. These things go in cycles.

Of course it was voter fraud.

Surely no one believes America voted to reelect the Marxist/Muslim usurper- the worst president in American history?






Can't you just imagine the above was the scene with Obama and his Commie staff after stealing the election through voter fraud- while Conservatives blame Romney, argue, point fingers, blather on about who to run in four years, 'starting a new party', and try to figure out how to suck up to minorities the 'next time'?

Next time? What makes them think the massive voter fraud in this last farce of an election won't be repeated? If we don't clean up our voting system, there may not be a next time. We may not see another Republican president in our lifetime

Map from Barack Obama Voter Fraud 2012


What most refuse to acknowledge is that it was unlikely that ANYBODY could have beaten the voter fraud planned and perpetrated by the criminal Obama machine. They seem to prefer pointing fingers, blaming Romney and blathering on about who to run in 2016 and how to suck up to the minorities.

>Polls indicated that Romney was going to win the election.

>The economy is close to Great Depression era conditions, and unemployment is almost as high as when Obama entered office.

>Economic conditions became so dire after Obama took office it prompted the rise of an entire new movement, the Tea Party.

>Presidents rarely win reelection when the economy is in the tank.

>Mitt knew it too, when he was met by several thousand in that parking garage cheering him when he arrived unannounced at that airport, and he put his hand over his heart and said, 'This is how you know you've won'.

So how did Romney lose a race that numerous reputable polls and pundits predicted would be an easy win, based on historical patterns?

Massive voter fraud.

That and no other reason

Almost every major Conservative website has put out an article charging voter fraud- Breitbart, American Thinker, Atlas Shrugs, WND, The Blaze, Front Page Magazine, Fox News, The Daily Caller, Town Hall, Human Events, Canada Free Press...


We cannot wait for 2014 and 2016 to regroup and figure out new strategies. By then it will be too late. The Marxist/Muslim usurper will have completed his planned distruction of America. That's what people fail to understand.

We must act NOW.

Start with the election. If we let the Rats get away with this massive voter fraud, we're no better than a bananna republic.

We must keep digging and pounding him every day, in every way we can- phony birth certificate, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, his hidden life, records....

If we don't clean up our voting system, there may not be a next time. We may not see another Republican president in our lifetime.

Amen to that!!!

This election fraud and cheating has multiple facets. I, for one, have outlined an agenda that would work toward cleaning up the electoral process. It includes voter photo ID cards with personalized bar codes; ending early voting, no-excuse absentee voting, Motor Voter, and same day registration; demanding proof of American citizenship of as a prerequisite to registration; increased security against hacking of electronic voting devices; and criminal prosecution and serious punishment of those who perpetrate these insults on the cornerstone principle of fair elections.

What is no excuse absentee voting?

It's the practice in some states of giving out absentee ballots to anyone who asks for one, no questions asked. I advocated ending such procedures where they exist, and forcing the prospective absentee voter to give a bona fide reason as to why he or she can't show up at the polling place on Election Day.

Merry Christmas.

I have been doing absentee balloting for about 25 years.

Prior to that, I never missed a vote. One year the day before the election, my boss asked me to go out of town to teach a class for someone who was sick.

It was an overnight trip and I missed the opportunity to vote because I couldn’t get back in time. It was a serious issue with me. When I grew up my parents instilled the importance of voting on me and I maintain that attitude today.

Also, as I get older and suffer from more infirmaries I can foresee a time when it will be very difficult for me to show up at the polls.

I would miss the set opportunity of not having an absentee ballot.

Please don't feel offended, morphing libertarian. If you have a valid reason (such as a medical condition or an urgent matter that requires your being away from home, e.g., military service) for not being able to show up at the polls on Election Day, you should be able to vote by absentee ballot during a narrow time frame.

There are scoundrels who vote by absentee ballot and then also go ahead and vote at the polls, perhaps several times. There are also absentee ballots that can get lost or can be discarded by partisan 'Rat election employees and not counted because they have GOP votes on them. Those are types of fraud and cheating that seldom get mentioned, even "flying under the radar" in a forum such as this.

To minimize fraud and cheating, lowering the number of absentee ballots is one of a number of worthwhile changes in election law.

This country is very good at pressing other sovereign countries to annul elections due to vote fraud and various irregularities. But here? We’re too perfect to do that, and prosecuting a few on occasion is little more than a bad joke.

Indeed. There should be a purge of all voter rolls. I’d support funding to reimburse states for the cost of all-new registration and even advertising to ensure people knew they needed to re-register.

At the same time I would not allow electronic voting - at least not computerized voting. I would favor the old-fashioned “scan tron” type devices which count hand-cast votes cast with a blotter pen, but not on-screen computerized voting and storage of votes. Each voter would get a ballot and the butterfly type ballot device with a blotter pen. No chads, just mark numbers on a ballot.

Then I would also have at-the-precinct counting in full view of observers and volunteers. None of this shipping of locked boxes full of ballots off to a central location for counting. Count the votes at the precinct in front of witnesses and then send the tally on to the SOS. It would be OK to have multiple counting devices to double or triple check the count. In fact this is preferred. But this way there would be scores of witnesses of each precinct count before it ever got to the SOS for validating. Any shenanigans of finding lost boxes full of ballots or ballot stuffing would be harder to pull off.

It might take longer but protecting the franchise is critical and worth the extra effort. If we want to end fraud we have to take control of the process.

I’ve been trying to figure a way to have a ballot that allows a receipt for the voter that they could go online and check to see their vote got counted correctly. Also, it would have to be some kind of duplicate, so it could be counted by two groups, and they had better match precisely or they count again.

Voter rolls should be for ONE election, then discarded. Register 30 days before every election or you don’t vote. NO MORE SAME DAY REGISTRATION. Register with a photo ID, have your photo taken with your photo ID in the new photo, as part of the registration, get a unique registration serial number, and all of it has to match at the election station or you do not vote. It might be like a driver’s license. Then, when you show up to vote, you surrender it. They enter your serial number to ensure it hasn’t been used before. After your vote, you take your ballot receipt home and double check online.

This will be enormously expensive to implement, of course. But hey, just print the money, right?
