The real problem with voter fraud

Both the Trump camp before the election and  the Hillary camp after the election cried voter fraud.  Is this just modern politics?  To some degree yes – but there really is a problem with voter fraud in the US.

I wonder if Trump will bring back the idea of Voter ID requirements. The Bush administration pushed that for a while but ultimately they caved to media pressure as it was fought in liberal courts.

The Dems always block it claiming that minority’s can’t get ID’s or something, but minorities are just as American and just as capable as anyone else in this country.  

The real reason it’s routinely blocked is not minorities and has nothing to do with illegal immigrants either … Illegals are often poor, nervous, and careful – more worried about survival in a heartlessly treated underclass than political manipulation. 

So why block voter ID legislation?  Because the hardcore ends-justify-the-means liberals like to stuff the ballot boxes by voting multiple times. They do this all the time in big cities like my current hometown of Los Angeles. It’s two-faced and shameless behavior, but that’s our corrupt political system for you.  They believe it’s to protect the environment or for some media-hyped racial divide when the elites could care less about those issues and are merely using these people to fix elections so they can line their own pockets. 

When I voted in Los Angeles at the women’s center, the person in front of me asked if you needed ID to vote.  The person at the booth said no, and the next person had a list of names and asked his name.  He could’ve said any name he spotted on that list – it was right on the table for all to see.  I kept my mouth shut, moved on, and voted … It was late in the day and any protest would just cause me problems without solving anything. Will things change?  Probably not, but there’s hope.
