Let’s settle this mail-in voting debate for good. The left says we need mail-in voting because of the pandemic. They argue that voter fraud never happens so if you are afraid of it you’ve been watching too much Fox News. People on the right say that fraud is rampant.
The truth is that we don’t really know. Only one state has ever allowed a study on the topic, and that was Virginia several years ago. They found 1200 counts of outright fraud. Every single other state has blocked research on voter fraud.
You can find plenty of individual examples of people being prosecuted, but the scale is completely unknown. The actions of states blocking research suggest guilt, but there aren’t hard numbers to use here.
So, let’s drop the concern of fraud for a minute. Let’s assume that it’s so rare we don’t have to worry about it this year. Even if that were the case, mail-in voting is still a terrible idea.
New Jersey just tried universal mail-in voting for their primary this year. They wanted something that didn’t force people into crowds because of the coronavirus. How did that go? The primary has had to be completely redone. Twice. It has been met with countless fiascos, and now, after they thought it was finally settled, Sussex County found another 1,666 ballots that were never counted. It’s a complete failure, and it’s not the only one.
Problems with mail-in voting are so widespread that the USPS has issued an official warning to 46 states. If they use universal mail-in voting, the timeline to count votes accurately will be impossible. The states do not have the mailing infrastructure and election timing necessary to deliver votes in time to be counted.
According to the USPS, thousands of votes will be ineligible in each state if they go forward with the process. That’s in 46 out of 50 states. The USPS is saying that mail-in voting will disenfranchise voters.
That’s not the worst of it. According to NPR, hundreds of thousands of mail-in votes are rejected in normal election years. That’s without universal mail votes or a pandemic. In fact, the Democratic Party is currently pursuing lawsuits in 10 different elections because of mail-in voting failures. Despite that, they’re pushing to expand mail-in voting.
That’s really the crux of it. The Democrats know that we don’t have the logistics in place for massive mail-in voting. They are so aware of this that they’re pushing multiple lawsuits to prove that fact. They then directly contradict themselves and call for even more mail-in voting. It’s pretty simple. They want to disenfranchise voters. That’s the point. They are so afraid of losing this election that they have decided their best strategy is to invalidate it.
Keep in mind that all of this assumes a best-case scenario. We’re assuming fraud is never a problem, and there’s no evidence to suggest that’s true because the Democrats keep blocking voter fraud investigations.
The Democrats will do anything to take and maintain power. You’ve seen this time and again over the past four years. They will absolutely cheat in this election. If it doesn’t work in November, they’ll escalate again. You need to be prepared. Plan to vote early or in person this year. Then, be ready to defend our country from the coup attempt that follows if Democrats lose.
