Enough is enough. Election after election boxes of Democrat ballots show up in counties run by Democrat election supervisors to benefit Democrat candidates who, once they steal their opponents election night victory, will join the chorus warning of Russian interference in our elections. Last time I checked, there were no Russian election officials in Palm Beach or Broward counties in Florida.
Democrats have long pushed for voting ease at the expense of voting integrity, pushing measures from voting by mail, to Motor Voter laws, to same-day registration while opposing voter ID laws which requires people to show up on election day with proof they are who they say they are. They claim Voter ID laws are designed to disenfranchise voters. So does the sudden appearance of mystery ballots days, even weeks, after elections without a documented chain of custody or certainty that other ballots werent destroyed or that the ballots found were cast by real, live American citizens.
One is reminded of the classic case of an arguably close stolen election, the 1960 presidential contest between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon and the vote early, vote often city of Chicago where voting was such a passion that death was no impediment to that civic duty:
At some point on election night Robert Kennedy, the candidate's brother and campaign manager, was counting electoral votes. Information was coming in quickly through the television networks but there was not much information on Illinois, a very large state. Most of Illinois was rural and traditionally Republican and the state's largest city, Chicago (then the second largest city in the country as I recall), was and remains heavily Democratic. The mayor of Chicago at the time was Richard J Daley, reputedly a powerful political boss. There was no information at all from Chicago and its suburbs at this point and it was coming in scattered from the prairie regions. Robert Kennedy wanted to know how many votes Mayor Daley and his people had counted in Chicago.As election night victories seemingly slip away from GOP candidates like Martha McSally in Arizona, Brian Kemp in Georgia, and Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in Florida, one can almost hear Democrat operatives and election officials asking the same question not asking how many votes were cast and for which candidate but how many votes does the Democrat candidate need? As in the race that put Al Franken in the Senate, recounts and lawsuits will inevitably continue until the Democrat takes the lead and then the counting will stop with nary a protest from the legacy media or the Russians.
Daley was harried, dealing with precincts all over the city, trying to compile and report them at an alarming rate. His answer to Robert Kennedy's question on vote totals was reputedly, "How many votes do you need?" The campaign manager told the Mayor he'd get back to him and Mayor Daley called with a vote total about an hour later, shortly before Illinois' heavily Democratic total was reported on the three major television networks.
Take the little noticed flip of a Republican congressional seat in New Mexico after a supposed election night victory was announced by local and national media for the GOP contender. This was the announcement by ABC:
Wednesday 2:18 a.m. EST -- Republican Yvette Herrell has defeated Democrat Xochitl Torres Small in New Mexicos 2nd Congressional District, ABC News can project. Herrell is the first woman to represent the district.Not so fast. Before the echoes of that announcement had faded, missing ballots suddenly were repeatedly found, just enough to flip the results to the Democrat. Amazingly missing ballots are seemingly never found that give the lead to or increase it for the Republican. Herrell is not conceding the race:
In an interview on Fox News, Herrell told Judge Jeanine Pirro that after multiple media outlets called the race for her on Election Night, the secretary of state's office called her and said, "they had magically found 4,000 ballots that had not been counted."That second batch of 4,000 was enough to flip the election to the Democrat. As Mayor Daley might say, his voice rising from a cemetery precinct, just tell me how many votes do you need? Or as Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin once reportedly observed, The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.
Herrell said, about an hour later, the secretary state's office called again and said they found another 4,000 ballots.
Things like motor voter and early voting are a plague on our electoral integrity even the Russians couldnt dream up. Early voting is an excuse for laziness that doesnt allow a voter to change their mind. Early voters can move to another jurisdiction or even be dead on election day. Motor voter is problematic in states that hand licenses out to illegal aliens who then can drive to the polls and vote, disenfranchising American citizens. Provisional ballots make no sense. If you cant properly register by election day, dont bother to show up. It is not that hard. Put down your cell phone, register, and wait for the next election. Mail in ballots are invitations to fraud, plagued with signatures that dont match and ballots denied depending on the election judges finite wisdom or political prejudice.

this, and tighten up voting by mail. if you can’t guarantee the integrity of the vote, then end it.
oh, and put a definite deadline on counting the damn votes. this nearly endless chaotic mess we have right now has to go.
Florida already requires Voter ID. Fat load of good it did when you have corrupt voting officials behind the scenes.
If the dems claim having an ID is a burden then take a photo, retinal scan and printsof voters as they cast their ballot.
It’s not ID as much as it is chain of custody of cast ballots.
Not only have voter ID, but end same-day registration, end early-voting and end most absentee ballots. These are all invitations to fraud.
Leave polls open 24 hours, but everyone (except perhaps for overseas active duty military) should be be required to show up to vote.
To respect voting, everyone should show much more respect to the process.
We need national voter id and voter integrity laws.
The system we have now is a joke.
Fear The Voting Dead - End Stolen Elections Like Florida Through Voter ID.
Agree, but it will NEVER HAPPEN. Nobody could scam or fix elections then and that wouldnt be acceptable to either major party.
Let the corruption continue !! they say.
Voter ID may be half of the equation, but it is far from all of it. It would not stop democrats from destroying republican ballots and replacing them with fake ones.
Here is the thing about election law. Election law needs to assume that everyone is a cheater. The voter, and the election worker, The machines, Even the SOS. It does not matter that not everyone is a cheater.
Election procedures need to be set up with a system of checks and balances so that no matter who cheats then they get caught. That would not be very hard to set up at all. It might take more resources, but it would be more than worth it.
Have to show picture ID to vote in TN. Funny we had no questions about ballot counts. We went big time Red in a senate race that Schumer and the democrats poured a bunch million$ into Bredesin but he lost big time to Marsha with no question about recounts or runoffs. Democrats cannot win in most states without voter fraud and votes from non citizens, dead folks, and no picture ID not to mention crooked election officials.
Voter ID will certainly help, but with all the loose ends — early voting, voting on the internet, voting by mail, provisional ballots, etc. the democrats can still work around that.
Voting should be restricted to one day and in person (except for the military). That would solve all problems.
& Purple fingers!!!
“& Purple fingers!!!
Definitely. Forgot that one. But is it racist? Mean spirited? Environmentally unsafe?
The democrats will never let voter ID happen because then they cannot cheat like they are doing in Georgia and Florida. It makes the most sense in the world to institute voter ID, but the democrats will find every excuse in the world not to.
Florida is not the only state where massive voter fraud was just committed.
Trump is the laughing stock globally
NO, your banana republic like voting laws and integrity are. The Democrats are all about suppression of votes, as the suppress legal votes...
No wonder there is routinely a low turnout.
When I go to the hospital to see my doctor I am asked to have my fingerprints taken. I consider our elections important enough to demand a fingerprint for every ballot.
