A Change For The Better: Keeping America’s Elections Clean

Recent actions taken by states to enhance the integrity of America’s electoral process by requiring voter ID cards, an idea that most Americans support, has caused quite a stir amongst liberals. Author James Boyard once wrote, “Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.” Wolves don’t play fair, especially up here in Alaska. The other day, a wolf devoured a dog right in front of its owner despite her best efforts to defend it. If we do not demand fair and honest elections, wolves of another kind will one day rule us.

Those opposing voter ID laws hurl accusations, suggesting such laws are driven by hatred, as Vice President Biden said back in February. Others say it’s a racist move intended to prevent minorities and poor people from voting, which is not the case given that states requiring voter ID offer cards free of charge.

But let’s be real, here. We need identification for just about everything, like buying alcohol and cigarettes, getting cable TV, purchasing a cellphone plan, boarding an airplane, going to the doctor, getting a driver’s license…or a passport… or a social security card, qualifying for welfare, entering government buildings, and even signing up for Obamacare.

Liberals support ID rules for every other occasion. The First lady required a social security number and photo ID to attend her book signing in 2012. Attendees at the 2012 Democrat National Committee convention in Charlotte were asked to whip out their state-issued IDs in the same state (NC) where 30,000 dead people were found on its voter rolls. And just last month, NAACP organizers for a “Moral March” rallying against photo ID laws told marchers to bring photo identification to participate. Oh, the hypocrisy!

So, why are they so afraid of voter ID? Maybe because Liberals couldn’t win elections without rampant voter fraud? Consider: A recent investigation by New York City’s Department of Investigations had its undercover agents show up at polls pretending to be people who had moved, were incarcerated, or deceased. According to the report, they were allowed to vote 97 percent of the time. In another investigative report, a large number of non-citizens were registered to vote in Florida; and a 2012 Pew Poll reported at least 1.8 million deceased voters are registered to vote across the U.S.

True the Vote, an organization that claims to be in the IRS’ crosshairs, says that back in 2012, more than 24 million voter registrations were invalid; more than 2.75 million people were registered to vote in more than one state; various counties in Indiana and Ohio had more registered voters than residents; 160 counties in 19 states had over 100 percent voter registration; and the Democrat Party of Florida and the National Council of La Raza were under investigation for alleged voter registration fraud.

Recent news from the Philadelphia Inquirer potentially exposes a much darker side to the voter ID issue. The March 17 investigative report, “Kane Shut Down Sting That Snared Philadelphia Officials,” stated that four area Democrat legislators allegedly took “multiple bribes ranging from a few hundred dollars to thousands in cash and Tiffany jewelry….in exchange for votes or contracts, including opposition to Pennsylvania’s proposed voter ID law.” Republicans were also offered bribes, but did not bite. Despite what the Inquirer described as solid evidence, the state’s new Attorney General Kathleen Kane, a Democrat, “secretly dropped the case in 2013″ — without as much as a peep from AG Eric Holder.

Given those who are dead, incarcerated, or non-citizens aren’t likely to complain if someone fraudulently casts a vote in their name, wouldn’t you say voter IDs are a great idea? Otherwise, the wolves will circle the last bastions of democracy; and voting will become as worthless as casting a ballot in Pyongyang.

    The popular vote for the Presidency was a big mistake along with the Electoral College!!! I believe State legislatures should be the way we vote for Presidents. Each State's House and Senate should cast their votes for President and Vice-President and the results after the tally should be submitted to the President of the Senate. The popular vote is too corrupted and the Electoral College system is really a farce. The Founding Fathers never wanted a popular vote for the Presidency because the reality of the times made popular votes somewhat impractical, and there was always the likelihood of immense corruption. Essentially what I am advocating for is a vote for the Presidency and Vice-Presidency by ALL OF THE STATE SENATORS AND STATE CONGRESSMEN IN THE ENTIRE NATION. The Democrats know that the federal judges are all compromised. As Sibel Edmonds, the famous FBI 9/11 whistleblower has said, when she was at the FBI she knew a guy who told her when he was a rookie, one of his first assignments was to vet federal judges from the District Court level to the SCOTUS. He said ONLY the candidates for judge who had dirt in their record who could be blackmailed were ever approved. Al of the stellar candidates with no dirt were always with no exception discarded. That's why the Democrats weren't the least bit concerned about lawsuits against Obama regarding his illegitimate Birth Certificate or his SSN fraud, Selective Service fraud, real estate property tax fraud, or even VOTER FRAUD. Knowing this fact, the Democrats know that it's a lot easier to elect a President by fraud in a popular national vote because no judge is going to invalidate a national election after the fact. Once you win the Presidency – however it is done – legally or illegally – it is a fait accompli. The harder task for the Democrats is to elect State Representatives and State Senators with voter fraud, which is what my system would FORCE them to do. That's how you can get these guys taken to court and prosecuted – at the State and County level courts.

    We can't vote progressives out. The election process has been seriously corrupted by massive voter fraud by the left. It is doubtful that fair ones will ever be held again, with the Marxists controlling the mechanism as they do. The democraps can’t stop cheating elections, like the woman in philly that voted 8 times. And voter ID should be mandatory, but holder needs the cheating to win. And the Diebold rigged their voting machines. And democraps cheating the Census Bureau data and the unemployment rate. If the rate is 6.6% then why do we need to extend the unemployment benefits? Report the true data! I lived under Carter and a misery index was >22%, but I am affected more under obama. We had better get a handle on our voting systems, cause the left is learning how to persuade 130% of us to vote in every election! Democraps do the following:
    1 The Left understands that honest elections kill them.
    2 There are some elections Democrats just can’t win without cheating.
    3 They buy votes with “free” stuff.
    4 They bribe individuals to vote Democrat several times (people are in prison for this during the last election).
    5 They disallow absentee ballots from America’s war-fighters–even those voting from combat zones.
    6 They bring honest or dishonest results they don’t like to court and ask Democrat judges to overturn them.
    Democrps make up ridiculous objections like “the lines are too long (use a chair)”, or “getting a photo ID is too expensive and time consuming (if they don’t have transportation to the DMZ, then how do they get food. It doesn’t cost anything to get a photo ID from the DMZ).” They’ll say anything but the truth, which is that they can’t win without cheating.
