It used to be that the biggest voter fraud always occurred in and around Chicago; Chicagoland. Perhaps you’ve heard the big joke of all the “dead people” voting there in decades past. Today, that is to say in the 2012 elections, it probably doesn’t matter, because Illinois, especially around Chicagoland is predominately Democrat anyway. In other words, it wouldn’t matter if there was massive voter fraud, President Barack Obama and his administration would have won anyway. But is there voter fraud in other states?
What states might I suggest?
Where might there be other problems?
Okay so let’s speculate about this for second, not enough to put it in the conspiracy theory category, but a good round of healthy mental debate.
Not long ago, someone asked me if I thought that; “there was massive voter fraud in states like Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida.” Actually, those are the places where I would expect voter fraud to occur. Not because of the racial segmentation of the demographic, rather because those are the battleground states, or the states with a large number of electoral votes, and also considered swing states. In other words; depending on the election, they might go either way. Pennsylvania, Florida, and also Ohio are often considered must win states in Presidential elections.
When I say voter fraud why me? Well, it could be something as simple as a union employee, perhaps a public union employee using a school bus to go and pick up individuals in the inner-city, give them a free meal, and take them to the polling places. Why would this be voter fraud, you ask? Well, because, the school bus is owned by the government, or is owned by a government contractor working with the school district. It is painted yellow, and bears the name of the school district. It is giving clout to itself when and if it picks up voters for use by a specific political party in their “ground game” efforts.
Then there are the voters who vote by provisional ballots. Or those that vote by absentee ballot, voting more than once perhaps in different counties, or over state lines. Anyone can register by absentee ballot, filling out a form, and signing the name. We don’t know if those names are real or not. In Ohio in 2008, there were people from foreign countries registering to vote, and they caught quite a few of them. They happen to be registered Democrats, and therefore that would’ve helped any of the Democrat candidates in that area, or any of the Democratic candidates at that state or federal level as well.
Since these tricks of the trade are more common than we are often led to believe, I think we need a full investigation to make sure there was no voter fraud in the state of Ohio in 2012, and while we’re at it let’s go ahead and check on Pennsylvania, and Florida as well. It might make sense to also check Nevada, and Virginia. If there was massive voter fraud, that’s where I’d expect it to be. But we won’t know for many months after the fact. It may not change anything in this election, but it will prevent further fraud abuse in the future.
You see, Americans need to know they can trust our elections here in the US. In many countries they can’t, and that’s one thing we have going for us, we need not lose that trust in the system. Please consider all this and think on it.Written by Lance Winslow Lance Winslow has launched a new provocative series of eBooks on Innovation in America.
