(Natural News) For some reason, Republicans always find themselves reacting to Democratic dirty political tricks, but that’s mostly because Democrats hate our Constitution, they hate our institutions, they hate our traditions, and they hate our political system.
That was evident during the 2020 election cycle when they devised and executed a plan to literally steal every single battleground state for the elderly and wholly controlled Joe Biden.
How they did it was evil genius: They took advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic to get Democratic state officials, governors and courts to approve several changes to established voting laws and procedures that included universal mail-in balloting, widened use of unmonitored ballot drop boxes, and getting rid of signature-matching requirements for absentee ballots. The results are now obvious: A much more popular Donald Trump has been deposed, and our electoral system is on life support.
Republicans in these states are working to ensure that what the Democrats pulled off cannot be done again, but the fact is, Democrats got around existing state laws to begin with — in violation of the U.S. Constitution, which states only legislatures can change voting laws, not judges, governors and Secretaries of State. So what’s to stop them from simply going around these new laws?
Voter ID, that’s what.
Several GOP-led states are either implementing new voter ID requirements or are strengthening existing ones because the only true way to prevent vote fraud is to a) make people vote in person; and b) make them prove who they are (and that they are legally able to vote) before casting their ballots. As an aside, for Americans who truly cannot get to a polling station because they are deployed overseas on behalf of the government or the military or because they are infirmed, strict signature verification and other verification methods must be kept in place.
In any event, Democrats are opposed to both of those concepts — mass in-person voting and voter ID — because they can’t cheat that way and they know it. It’s not “racist” or “sexist” or any “-ist” to make Americans vote in person and prove who they are; we did that for centuries before, in recent times, the Marxist Party (Democrats) came to believe the only way they can attain power is not by promoting their ideas and policies (because they are not popular) but rather by stealing elections.
As it turns out, the United States is an “outlier” in this respect, not a leader, despite our technological prowess: Of 47 countries in Europe (the majority of which are socialist-leaning and very ‘progressive’), all but one requires citizens to have a government-issued ID before they can vote. And the one that doesn’t yet require it — England — is about to adopt that requirement.
Writing at RealClearInvestigations, criminologist John Lott Jr. notes:
Democrats and much of the media are pushing to make permanent the extraordinary, pandemic-driven measures to relax voting rules during the 2020 elections – warning anew of racist voter “suppression” otherwise. Yet democracies in Europe and elsewhere tell a different story – of the benefits of stricter voter ID requirements after hard lessons learned.
A database on voting rules worldwide compiled by the Crime Prevention Research Center, which I run, shows that election integrity measures are widely accepted globally, and have often been adopted by countries after they’ve experienced fraud under looser voting regimes.
“Criticisms of the British leader’s voter ID push are similar to those heard in the U.S. The Scottish National Party claims this voter ID push targets ‘lower income, ethnic minority and younger people’ who are less likely to vote for Johnson’s conservatives and therefore represents ‘Trump-like voter suppression,'” Lott adds.
But in fact, after adopting strict voter ID requirements, elections in European countries are a lot more reliable, trusted, and believed — vital to the sustainment of a country.
Why wouldn’t Democrats want a more reliable, trustworthy system? You know the answer.
