VOTER FRAUD IS RAMPANT!

                                  INTRODUCTION 

Fraudulent Votes

The 2020 Democrat Primary Iowa Caucus held on February 4, 2020 was a mess, most likely cheating contender Bernie Sanders from a decisive victory.  The 2018 national mid-term elections held on November 6, 2018, resulted in Democrats taking over the House of Representatives from the Republicans, the Republicans increasing their lead in the Senate, and Republican governors being elected in Florida and Georgia, among other things…or did it?

Although all ballots are supposed to be counted within a half-hour of  polls closing on election day, in the days following the election, boxes of ballots miraculously appeared in cars for Broward County, Florida and votes were still being counted in Arizona, Georgia, and Florida.  Was this simply incompetence or was it fraud? Let’s look at some recent examples of fraudulent voting:

1) the Pew Center on the States estimates 1.8 million deceased individuals are listed as voters;  2) 24 million voter registrations are no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate (see February 2012 Pew Center Issue Brief);  3) in many U.S. counties there are more registered voters than there are residents (see Judicial Watch’s “A Citizen’s Guide to Ensuring Free and Fair Elections in 2016 and Beyond”); 4) most Democrat politicians push to eliminate all voter identification to vote…guess why;  5) a California  law allows non-citizens to have driver licenses and then the California Motor Voter law automatically registers them to vote when they receive or renew their driver license; 6) voters in Philadelphia were intimidated by New Black Panther party members who were not prosecuted by Obama’s U.S. Justice Department (see J. Christian Adams’ book, Injustice);  7) the U.S. Presidency was stolen in 1960 by Joseph Kennedy, President Kennedy’s father!  8) men and women in the military are routinely sent ballots so late that it’s impossible for their votes to be counted in time;  9) absentee voting has become the voter fraud of choice because it doesn’t require voter ID; 10) countless other elections at the Federal, State and local levels being stolen; 11) 2.7 million voters fraudulently registered in two states, 68,000 voters fraudulently registered in 3 states; 12) Pennsylvania currently has no requirements for voter identification  (see February 2012 Pew Center issue brief;  see John Fund’s books:  Who’s Counting?: How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk; and  Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy); 13) Harvard (CCES) study shows 6.4% illegals voted in presidential elections and 2.2% in off-years; 14) following the 2008 U.S. Senatorial election for Minnesota, boxes of ballots miraculously were found in trunks of cars again and again until Al Franken won over his opponent, Norm Coleman, who had won; 15) non-citizen voting becoming a large problem accounting for the “open-borders” movement in the Democrat Party (see the 2018 book, Fraud, by Eric Eggers).

ANALYSIS: Who’s responsible for this National disgrace and travesty?  The governments at the Federal, State and local levels are the culprits!  It’s not due completely to incompetence but to dirty/criminal politics and it’s long overdue to be corrected before Americans lose all faith in the integrity of their elections.

Even in the Iraqi elections a decade and a half ago, voting was much more honest than in the United States.  How can that be?  Iraq had a very simple but effective system which was used by the U.S. military: when Iraqis voted they had to dip their index finger into a jar of indelible purple ink…and this was solid evidence that they had voted.  In the United States, on the other hand, registration proving that you’re eligible to vote is required first.   What evidence is required to register to vote?  In Colorado, a utility bill with your name on it was sufficient.  Of course this is ridiculous because you  don’t have to be a citizen in order to receive a utility bill…and in addition, if you have more than one home in different counties, you’ll have separate utility bills for each home (you get to vote twice if you’re dishonest).

Many politicians say that they don’t want to place an undue burden on their citizens by actually requiring that they show a photo ID, such as a drivers license (which is even required of people of questionable age to buy a pack of cigarettes).  What a crock!  Does any adult really believe that lax registration standards have any purpose other than facilitating fraudulent voting?  It is important in a democracy for people to have faith in the process by which their leaders are elected, so care must be taken that it’s done honestly and that politicians are kept far away from the process.  Voter fraud is not new, but dates back to the beginning of our Republic (see Andrew Gumbel’s book, Steal This Vote).

In the recent 2018 mid-term election vote discrepancies in Broward County, Florida, it appears that the culprit was a corrupt County election supervisor, Brenda Snipes.

THE SOLUTION: All election officials must follow their State’s election laws or be penalized.  A photo ID, either in the form of a driver’s license or a State-issued photo ID should be mandatory in every state in order to vote.  Later, perhaps also a slight revision and an addition could be made to the on-line E-Verify system created by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in concert with the Social Security Administration that is currently used by employers to ascertain whether someone is in the U.S. legally.  A “Voter Photo Authentication”  may be in order given the amount of massive voter fraud in the U.S. (four million/year?).  Something also must be done to prevent criminal politicians from continuing to corrupt our elections.  It’s government’s fault that it got this way and it’s  government’s responsibility to clean it up.

IS CAPITALISM ETHICAL? DOES SOCIALISM WORK?

Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, and many celebrities and academia advocate Socialism; the National Debt increased by $10 trillion (to $20 trillion) during President Obama’s 8 years; annual GDP growth under 2% for Obama’s entire reign; …ad infinitum.  Is Capitalism to blame for America’s woes under President Obama or has President Trump proven that it’s the solution to our Nation’s economic problems?

Let’s take a closer look, first with very brief definitions of Capitalism and Socialism so we’re all clear on what we’re talking about.  From the book, ‘isms and ‘ologies by Arthur Goldwag, Capitalism is the “free exchange of goods in a competitive marketplace.”  In that same book, “Socialism” is defined as the opposite of Capitalism.  Further, “In socialist economies, the means of production are either controlled by or directly owned by the state…” European and Nordic countries are not socialist, but simply are capitalist countries with many welfare benefits and healthcare.

Capitalism is fueled by a motive to make profits and it does this by providing goods and services that consumers want and at a price that can beat competitors’ prices who also provide similar goods and services.  This forces capitalists to constantly improve quality and undercut competitors’ prices.   Socialism eliminates the profit motive and therefore satisfies some people’s altruistic side and also attempts to redistribute wealth from the “haves” to the “have-nots,”  satisfying some people’s idea of fairness.  Because in Socialism there is no continuous need to improve efficiency and effectiveness, there usually is significant waste and inefficiencies.  Capitalists would argue that they earn their profits, attending college for many years and then working 70-80-hour workweeks… and it’s their taxed profits that enables government to have the money to help others.

Capitalism creates wealth,  which then is taxed and used to help the poor and needy.  Socialism makes equality of outcome most important, consequently leading to everyone being equally poor with no large sums of funds available for government and charities to help those in need.  Socialism takes away the incentive for people to work hard and excel to provide for themselves and their families.  The top 10% of the wealthy pay 70% of all Federal taxes.  The lowest 50% of taxpayers pay about 2% of Federal income taxes.

Government is usually the culprit behind much fraud, unemployment and economic downturn and  is responsible for our current economic woes.  Loans to people unable to repay them was the precipitating event that caused the 2007-8 economic downturn.  Quasi-government Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac forced banks, with threats of lawsuits, to make those bad loans.  Therefore, to have the government fully control the economy is insanity.  Government does not understand business, does not understand how jobs are created, does not comprehend how many of its regulations, especially “Obamacare,” are destroying the economy.

The Dodd-Frank Bill, proposed by and named after two of the most significant initiators of the 2008 economic downturn (Congressman Barney Frank and Senator Chris Dodd), was truly absurd.  For all of its harm to small banks and to the economy, it didn’t even address the cause of the downturn, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

So, let’s answer our two basic questions, “Is Capitalism Ethical”, “Does Socialism Work?”  Capitalism is a huge engine for job creation and wealth to the extent that the Pacific Rim countries have embraced it, as well as China (and they are all becoming wealthy fast)…and there’s nothing unethical about making a reasonable profit for providing goods or services.   Socialism, on the other hand,  can be forced to work, but at the cost of civil liberties, prosperity, unemployment, and political interference in all aspects of your life.

Finally, how about some people becoming billionaires?  Is it ethical for anyone becoming that wealthy?  Huge wealth is certainly a possibility under Capitalism.  However, very wealthy people pay most of the taxes and also give much of their wealth, after providing for their families,  to charities, which use it more wisely than the government ever will. Finally, if you still have a problem with Capitalism, then call it “free enterprise” which means the same thing but is more descriptive and uncontroversial.  And if you’re still unconvinced if socialism works or has ever worked, just check out what’s happening in Venzuela, and if you think Socialism is great, then continue to vote for Democrats and be prepared for the continued decline of the United States.  On the other hand, keep an eye on the Trump economy to see what capitalism can do.
