Veteran’s Day | Heritage Explains VOTER FRAUD

EDITORIAL COMMENT | Citizens Journal: Happy Veterans Day to everyone who has served or is serving in our military forces. It is because of YOU that our great Republic’s diverse citizenry are able to participate in our democratic voting process. Your decision to serve protects us and preserves our right to vote which, according to the article below, “…is the most basic civil right…on which many other rights of the American people depend.YOU are doing YOUR job. It is up to “We the people...”, to demand of Congress and the states that they “…guarantee every eligible individual is able to vote and that no one’s vote is stolen or diluted.”


From The Heritage Foundation’s website.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  1. The right to vote in a free and fair election is the most basic civil right, one on which many other rights of the American people depend.
  2. Congress and the states should guarantee that every eligible individual is able to vote and that no one’s vote is stolen or diluted.
  3. Voter fraud is real and hundreds of convictions have been made and documented.
Preserving the great experiment that is the American republic is dependent upon free and fair elections. When  selecting a city councilor or the president of the United States, every American must be able to trust the process and the result, or the democratic system itself breaks down.Election integrity is essential and the security of the ballot box cannot be left to a simple honor system.. It is incumbent upon state governments to safeguard the electoral process, and ensure that every voter’s right to cast a ballot is protected.

The history of voting in the United States Contrary to the claims of many liberals, the problem of voter fraud is as old as the country itself. As the U.S. Supreme Court noted when it upheld Indiana’s voter identification law, “flagrant examples” of voter fraud “have been documented throughout this Nation’s history by respected historians and journalists.”Attempts to commandeer election results have been documented dating back to the 19th century, when New York City’s infamous Tammany Hall was synonymous with political corruption and election fraud. In one New York election 1844, 55,000 votes were recorded even though there were only 41,000 eligible voters. Decades later, these efforts have continued  and determined fraudsters have become only more creative in their efforts to fix the outcome of elections.
