Is there voter fraud?

Tuesday, March 16, 2021

The Democrats seem very strong in their view there is no voter fraud. One would have to be pretty naÔve to believe there is no voter fraud. In any human endeavor, there are people who cheat. Democrat emotions ran pretty high in the 2020 presidential election. So high, that one can believe that some might believe it was OK to cheat since President Trump was so evil that he must be removed from office. I think the reason most Democrats donít believe there was no voter fraud is that they believe tilting the scales in their favor is justified.

One would feel more reassured about Democratic sincerity in this regard if they didnít oppose the universally accepted proof of identity, a government issued picture ID. Sometimes Democrat actions speak louder than words, such as the current Nancy Pelosi/House of Representatives attempt to reverse a certified Iowa election in the Iowa Second District and expel the certified winner, GOP Rep. Marionette Miller-Meeks. The House also has a bill pending to muscle the states out of the election qualification business and install federal law in place of state law. Do we want people from Washington D.C. running our elections?

As for the irregularities in the last election, the Democratic line is that all judges rejected all election disputes on the merits. But this is not true. For example, the Wisconsin Supreme Court rejected one Republican challenge by a vote of 4-3, hardly a total rejection of the contention. The U.S. Supreme Court could not agree what to do in one case by a tie vote of 4-4. These and other examples belie the Democrat contention that there were no irregularities and there were no grounds for dispute.

President Trump did very well in the 2020 election with 75 million votes. More than any previous Republican candidate and more votes than he won in the 2016 election. The only problem is Biden received 80 million votes Ė more than any previous presidential candidate. Biden received more votes than Barak Obama Ė an immensely popular candidate. Pretty amazing performance for a presidential candidate that rarely came out of his basement.

It is too bad we canít get the truth about election fraud. Big Tech (Facebook, Twitter, Google) have teamed up to be sure information on the internet is biased to one point of view. Just try to search the internet for websites that will provide the facts about how the election was conducted.
