I'm with you. It's more the standards in vote authentication that I was talking about. I should have made that more clear. Not verifying registrations that the would-be voter fits one of those 5 (except some states that now allow some felons to vote), and then again not verifying that the actual person voted and on time. One of my father's neighbors got 3 mail-in ballots and got one for his underage daughter. He thought they were mistakes and threw them away. He know realizes he should have kept them. He also lives in one of the areas that supposedly got counterfeit ballots from China. I am still waiting on proof of the China accusation.

I think you're right. I think there were illegal registrations and ballots in all the swing states, even the ones Trump won. My question is: is this a coordinated effort among a loosely affiliated group of individuals, a bad "culture" of vote gathering with similar training within the party, or a leader at the top with commands working down to the lowest level.

A lot of states, using the Secretary of State office, relaxed their voting standards, against the laws set up by the state legislatures. That is what Texas had filed suit against. It is specifically in the U.S. Constitution that only state legislatures can make (or change) election laws. Article II, Section 1. There would have to be an Amendment to standardize all the state elections.

The coordination in (what seems to me) the swing states, even the ones Trump won, is what worries me. I hope I am wrong on my feelings about that.

I like your ideas. We have a readable paper ballot that gets printed when we vote locally. We hand deliver it to a poll worker who drops it into a locked box. I think they only use it for hand-to-eye recounts but it is there for a hard copy back-up.

I have issue with two avenues for fraud. The first is mail-in ballots. In years past, the absentee ballots were fewer and easier to authenticate. This year, the mail-in ballots were way too easy to misuse: from ballot harvesting to fake (or any ineligible) voters. The second is voter I.D., or lack thereof. I was the victim of this. I did not find out until two years later and there was nothing I could do about it.

Your ideas included with proper authentication would sure up most of the problems, in my opinion.

You are correct. There is no right to vote for the individual citizen, and I see your point about the citizens of the state holding their own officials accountable. Maybe this will loosen up some investigations in other states or strengthen the effort of those who want to see more investigation by their officials.

Well, I know I have bias with voter fraud since I have been on the receiving end, but I think of these instances of voter fraud coming to light as the pieces to a puzzle of a bigger, national fraud. Just because Texas went for Trump doesn't mean that some people didn't try to swing it to Biden. If there was indeed a fraud campaign in Texas, then there is probably a link to fraud campaigns in other states. If the pieces don't fit, then I'll be satisfied that it wasn't "stolen".

Actually, it would probably bring in more money than the model Mags has now. People tend to use things when they pay for it, or pay more for it. Look at your local soft-ball league. Teams that make their players pay a few dollars to cover t-shirts tend to have more participation. The ones that have 100% sponsorship, often have trouble keeping a consistent line-up. I think the donations here is less than $100 a month. If 20 users paid $5 a month, it would reach that.

I guess you've heard by now that a Capital Police officer was killed by a blow to the head with fire extinguisher.

I look at it like this:

I put myself in Babbit's shoes. There's no way I would have broken into the Capital building under these circumstances, much less tried to break through a barricade with guns drawn on me.

I put myself in the officer's shoes. There is an angry mob trying to breach a barricade having already violently assaulted other officers. It was his job to keep the occupants safe. He had every right to assume they were going to be assaulted with deadly force if the mob broke through.

The nationwide riots are other incidents. I support mass arrests of violent and even "peaceful" protestors who disrupted traffic and business (more than cases of mild inconvenience). I even support Kyle Rittenhouse's self-defense. Imagine yourself in those situations. Would you even be there? If not, maybe you shouldn't be making excuses for them; Ashli Babbit or George Floyd. Actions have consequences.

Hey, we're both wrong. The medical examiner released memos along with the autopsy report. These statements were in those memos:

"The autopsy revealed no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation,"

and

"Mr. Floyd had underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease. The combined effects of Mr. Floyd being restrained by police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death."

We both stand corrected.

You know, I think you are both right in a way. Neither Babbit nor Floyd should have been "martyred" by their respective sympathizers. They both put themselves in each of their respective positions and paid the consequence. I'm sure Floyd didn't plan on OD'ing after getting caught passing fake money (read the coroner's report, his death had nothing to do with the cop kneeling on his neck). Babbit didn't think her actions of violently breaking into the US Capital would result in her being shot (the cop had every right to assume she was breaking in to do bodily harm or murder). Did either "deserve" to die? I don't think they should have, but they, themselves, helped make it happen.

Of course there is, and I tried to make that distinction.

Personally, I have known illegal aliens who are good people. In a perfect world, they wouldn't have to worry about being legal residents. There is no easy solution, but I can compartmentalize the handing out of driver's licenses to illegal aliens. I think that it is a mistake to lump all issues related to illegal immigration together. If you do, you can find no common ground to find a solution. Most people want good things for themselves as well as others. It's how we think we get there that's different.

This is sad to me; directing hatred towards people who vote differently than you do. Just because someone doesn't see what you do does not make them evil.

Totally different argument. I thought I gave a pretty good analogy. I guess we're just too far apart on how we view this.

I understand that the copying is done at long distances using some poorly understood connection between the "paired" particles. Think of the Cheech & Chong movie "The Corsican Brothers".

I'll give you this analogy: I print counterfeit money. I buy candy from the store with that money. Everyone's a winner, right? I get candy for next to nothing. The store owner makes a profit off the candy. The candy manufacturer makes money from producing the candy, and on and on up the supply chain. Everyone's a winner, right? No one is harmed, right? We all (society) lose because it destabilizes our whole system of value (or values).

Again, you can argue for/against open borders, but this specific example rewards people for breaking the law by allowing them privileges of a legal resident. Why should any of us follow the rules (law) if breaking them means nothing?

Crazy. If there is indeed massive voter fraud, it will be proven through the courts, no matter how long it takes. No need for this kind of stunt.

Because it rewards people for breaking the law. If you're weighing the pros and cons, that's a different argument.

So if this leads to teleportation of objects like that seen on Star Trek, does it create a Ship of Theseus paradox? What happens to the original object?

It's not that the murder rate is going up; it's that it's mainly climbing in the poor, black neighborhoods (at least in my area). Police departments are gun-shy (no pun intended) to be as active or even pro-active in these neighborhoods. It seems that they are letting this type of crime happen there and then moving in. There is not as much outreach or even action as they see things escalating. In the larger cities here, the politicians are keeping the police from doing anything but cleaning up afterwards.

I appreciate you sharing your experiences and views. I think you're right that things will get better after this when verifying votes (and the voters). And I agree that the poll workers are generally selfless individuals who seem to do it out of duty instead of the very little pay they get. I've only seen one that let her political opinion known.

Thanks for the pep talk. I think Biden will be a moderate President and is still friendly with most Senators. Bill Clinton was a good President even with his moral deficiencies, and I think Biden can work across the aisle. I hope the Senate holds, though. I remember what happened the last time the Democrats took both chambers of Congress and the White House, although there is no chance for a super-majority this time.

Fraud only has to impact a few states to make a difference in the national election. There are reports of officials relaxing and even skirting the mail-in ballot safeguards. https://sharylattkisson.com/2020/12/what-youve-been-asking-for-a-fairly-complete-list-of-some-of-the-most-significant-claims-of-2020-election-miscounts-errors-or-fraud/

I hadn't even thought about internet voting. I'm not sure I'll ever be comfortable with that. You'd have to make sure both ends are secure.

It's the extremely high percentage of Biden votes in those early morning drops that makes me suspicious. The number of ballots "dropped" at once don't bother me since it can mean that's how groups of votes collected were tallied and then reported at once. There was a 125,000 drop in Wisconsin with 100% for Biden. How does that happen? I did not hear of any 100% vote drops for Trump if they were dropping totals for each individually, even if Trumps drops were half the size or less.

I'm not convinced that the voting machines were hacked as some people say. In my area, a paper ballot is printed after we vote. We read it and then take it to a poll worker for back up. Mail in ballots are where I think the fraud played a role. Some states removed safeguards to make it easier for fraud by mail-in voting. I think the ballot dumps just mean when they are reported in large groups, but 95% Biden for over 100,000 ballots in at least one case? Also, absentee ballots are different than the roll out of the mass mail-in ballots. I understand that this is a special year and it was challenging to get people access to the polls. I think it could have been much better handled. I will not be satisfied unless these mail-in (and even the absentee) ballots are verified. See Lyndon Johnson's Senate campaigns in 1941 and 1948. I know that will take many months and I think that is why so many are trying to "move on". Even in the North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice race, the Democrat conceded after a sample hand-to-eye recount even though she lost by only 400 votes out of over 5 million cast. She is not allowed to ask for a state wide hand-to-eye recount.

As much as in-person voting is supposed to be the most secure, I was the victim of in-person voter fraud in 2016. Someone walked in to a neighboring precinct and told the poll workers they were me. They don't have to offer any proof and the poll workers are not allowed to ask. They said "I" had moved so that they could fill out a provincial ballot. I voted in person the same day. I did not know until 2018 when I was told I was at the wrong polling station. It took weeks to straighten out and was told it was a simple mistake, even after I found out the new address was an abandoned, unlivable house. I will always be skeptical for this reason, unless I see proof that all steps were made for a secure election and not just a "reasonable" effort. I am an unaffiliated voter, but the Democrat Party in my state has been fighting the Republicans for voter ID laws. I say this because this is why I need to see more proof of life for an honest election than many. And, I distrust the Democrat Party specifically when it comes to potential voter fraud. I feel they have to most to gain from it and feel that's why they fight against safeguards.

Thank you for your reasonable, well put together thoughts on this with backup examples. This site needs more users like you. Great ending quote, too.

Very true, except for calling people names. Both major political parties did a good job of voter drives, with the Republicans pushing for in-person, election day voting and the Democrats pushing for mail-in voting. The Democrats also peppered friendly neighborhoods and schools to increase their voter base. Even with mail-in ballots favoring Biden, the "ballot dumps" at 4am are disturbing to me with the unrealistically high percentage of Biden votes, but it's up to the Trump teams to come up with the proof.

I have seen emptier hospitals in less densely populated areas. The larger urban areas with stricter lockdowns have had more patients until recently. Now some of the smaller, rural hospitals are seeing that traffic.

This. I have relatives in the medical field and they say the same thing. It's not that the ICU's are full right now, it's that they are filling up, as well as the morgues. It does have the potential to overwhelm the hospitals and that's why the hospitals have been cleared. There is also something about the ambulance services having to circle the area sometimes, waiting on approval to find a hospital. Some areas are worse than others. Any non-Covid-19 related hospital visit is discouraged and you are sent home ASAP. They say there are so many people coming through with Covid-19, that you don't want to be there to take a chance on getting infected. I don't believe in the government lockdown, but I do believe this is a very contagious bug that hits really hard on the health-compromised and occasionally on the healthy.
