Liberals like to fancy themselves as science-loving truth seekers, that they’re the protectors of facts and the only ones willing to face the truth, no matter what.
This falsehood has become ingrained in the liberal identity, which can be clearly seen with their recent embrace of all things nerdy and “science-y.”
They think they’re smart because they “get” the “jokes” on the horrifically contrived show The Big Bang Theory, and because they retweet all the asinine things our nation’s unqualified science spokesman, Neil Degrasse Tyson, says.
They religiously watch John Stewart’s “comedy” news show and now they’ve transitioned to Colbert’s nightly Trump hate-fest, as well as HBO’s John Oliver’s attempts to explain current events through that mashed-potato face of his.
But conservatives are the ones living in the real world, the ones capable of accepting problems and trying to properly address them.
Whether it’s global warming or voter fraud, there’s no place for half-truths or politics.
But the reality is, these and many other controversial issues are controversial precisely because the Left’s politicization of them, which, in turn, prevents any workable solutions being put in place.
On the issue of voter fraud, it’s readily apparent that it’s a problem.
But the truth is, it doesn’t matter if it is or not, because our nation should go to great lengths to protect the integrity of our votes. Over the years, conservatives have pushed for things like voter ID laws to help cut down on the problem.
But leftists always stand in the way; they claim that such policies are designed to disenfranchise minorities, to keep them from the polls. It’s a disgraceful and pitiful lie.
As reported at the Federalist, the Left’s complete denial that voter fraud exists is nothing but an attempt to prevent laws that would make it more difficult for them to cheat.
They’re actively engaged in fraudulent practices, so it’s in their interests to strike down all attempts to make their cheating more difficult.
In the run-up to the presidential election, several cases of fraud were discovered:
In Colorado, multiple instances were found of dead people attempting to vote. Interestingly, “a woman named Sara Sosa who died in 2009 cast ballots in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.”
In Virginia, it was found that nearly 20 voter applications were turned in under the names of dead people.
A technique being used by criminals in Texas was also discovered; it’s called vote-harvesting. This is when a signature is illegally obtained from a valid voter, which is then used to vote for the thief’s preferred candidate.

There are also the many videos released by Project Veritas, which show leftists actively engaging in illegal activity related to voting/registration and also admitting to the existence of crimes/fraud.
In one of the videos, the Democratic commissioner of the Board of Elections in New York City, Alan Schulkin, admits:
“I think there is a lot of voter fraud.”
The undercover journalist asks Schulkin whether the types of “neighborhoods” where “they bus people around to vote” were “minority neighborhoods, like black neighborhoods and Hispanic neighborhoods,” he replies, “Yeah, and Chinese too.”
“Why do they do that?” asks the journalist. “Just to get more votes for the Democrats?”
“For more votes,” says Schulkin. “More votes for themselves. They’re all running for office… They get buses and they move people around.”
When the journalist asks Schulkin about the fact that New York has no voter ID laws, he responds:
“No, you can’t. You cannot ask. They can’t ask for voter ID. It’s the law. The law says you can’t ask for anything, which they really should be able to do.
You know I don’t think it’s too much to ask somebody to show some kind of an ID.
“[Y]ou’re the Commissioner you said of the Democratic Election Commissioner,” says the journalist. “So, if you think there is voter fraud and you think there should be voter ID, why don’t people listen to you?”
“Well, that’s because the New York State legislature makes the laws, I don’t make the law,” Schulkin says.
When the journalist continues on to a question about absentee ballots, Schulkin replies, “Oh, there’s thousands of absentee ballots. I don’t know where they came from.”
All of this came from the commissioner of the election board in NYC. Yet the Left will turn around and say the problem is a myth.
It’s so utterly laughable to see the disconnect between what they say/believe in private versus the disgusting turnabout they do in public. It’s un-American to the core, as they are knowingly allowing our sacred voting rights be polluted with fraud.
If you can manage to get a leftist to admit there’s at least some fraud, they’ll say that it’s so insignificant that nothing needs to be done.
They’ll cite questionable studies that show only a handful of people were convicted of fraud in the entire nation.
But that’s faulty, convenient logic.
Remember, just because only a few crimes were officially reported, it doesn’t mean they don’t happen more frequently. It’s especially likely crimes are under-reported since it’s not a violent crime, but rather a “victimless” one, one that’s difficult to even attempt to investigate.

With few convictions, it actually proves that our enforcement mechanisms are lacking, not that none are needed.
Following liberal “logic,” does the fact that 109 people were cited for jaywalking in Seattle in 2009 mean that only 109 people jaywalked in Seattle during that year?
Does the fact that 103,733 people were cited for driving without a seatbelt in Tennessee in 2015 mean that only that many people were driving without seatbelt in Tennessee in 2015?
Nope. In 2014 in Tennessee, only 29,470 people were cited. But some simple changes to the laws drastically increased the number of folks caught the following year, which we know is still only a tiny percent of the total not wearing their seatbelt.
The same can be applied to voter fraud. Few are caught not because it’s super rare, but because enforcement is lacking, as is the agency to even do anything about it when people are caught.
There are plenty of videos of liberals illegally registering voters, yet they are never punished. So count them as part of the litany of unreported or overlooked crimes talked about above.
As to the claim voter ID laws are racist, that’s hardly even worth addressing. The reality is, states that have passed said laws have actually seen an uptick in blacks voting, which contradicts the Left’s claims of voter suppression.
Not only that, part of the requirements for these laws to pass is that anyone can get a free government-issued ID, making it less “burdensome” on the voters.
But even this is considered too onerous by liberals, as it’s simply too much to ask for a person to wander down to a government office and get a free ID.
Leftists cite transportation being the biggest factor preventing their trip to get an ID, claiming many minorities are incapable of making such a trip.
That’s funny. They can get their groceries, their smartphones, make a trip to the welfare office, to their friend’s/family’s houses, work, etc. but can’t make one-time trip for the sake of their voting rights.
Talking about tyranny of low expectations. Liberals really seem to think minorities are inferior, incapable people. More hypocrisy.
Voter fraud is a serious issue, especially thanks to the Left’s wildly successful attempts to flood the nation with illegals.
With tens of millions of illegals in our midst, stricter voting rules are needed more than ever.
The truth is, if a person doesn’t have the agency to get a free ID, then maybe they shouldn’t be voting in the first place. No, they PROBABLY shouldn’t be voting.
