The Blogosphere Wars on Truth about Nonexistent “Voter Fraud”

Election Integrity Cat is stunned by the silly video of Ken Blackwell and Hermain Cain claiming voter id laws insure the vote.

There is an unusual amount of misinformation on various wordpress blogs and around the internet about the dangers of “voter fraud.” Virtually nonexistent “voter fraud” is being used to rig the upcoming 2012 election by suppressing the vote through passage of undemocratic voter ID laws, restrictive registration laws, and restrictive early voting days laws.

GOP Efforts to Curb Early Voting in Florida, Ohio and Wisconsin

Why would a state make it harder for working people to vote? No other reason except to try to limit the types of people who might want to go to the polls on a Sunday before the election because it is harder for them to vote on a Tuesday when they are at work. According to a CBS report, many GOP controlled states are cutting back on early voting days.

Many churches promoted early voting to their members the Sunday before an election. However, Florida Governor Rick Scott took this away from voters as did other GOP governors and GOP legislatures in the U.S. for no other reason than to rig the 2012 election. It seems some people’s idea of “freedom” is that they want only their party folks to be eligible or able to get to the polls. That is a weird type of freedom.

Here is a website showing efforts to push back on the Youth Vote via repressive state laws that make it more difficult for college students to cast a vote in the city where they go to school. Is this to “protect” the vote or to “prevent” the vote of those who might vote democratic or independent? The stench from the laws promoted to suppress and repress the vote is getting stronger and stronger. Do you smell it?

Here is an article on Rachel Maddow’s Blog that shows the extent to which the GOP will call white black and black white. We have here former GOP Ohio Attorney General Ken Blackwell who was involved in a possible Man-in-the-Middle Vote-rigging Scheme to steal the Ohio 2004 election by changing votes in the middle of the night; and former Presidential GOP Candidate, Herman Cain, who seem as if they are participating in an outlandish Saturday Night Live Skit. This must be in the vein of the idea of “creating your own reality.” Well, it is time that we stopped believing in this false reality of “voter fraud” which is just a scam to scam Americans into losing their vote.

BUSTING the ‘Man-in-the-Middle’ of Ohio Vote Rigging

Let’s hope Americans can wake up and smell the rot coming from the legislation packaged by ALEC and others as protecting the vote when in reality it undermines the “freedom” of all Americans to equally exercise their constitutional right to cast a vote and have it properly counted.

    The requirement to show a photo ID to prove (at least visually sync your face and with the ID) your who you say you are is a reasonable request. However, to make it fair the ID needs to be one that is credible, easy to obtain, and FREE.

    A birth certificate might be free to you, if a hospital didn’t charge you anything (I had to pay for my children’s Birth Certificates). Of course if you loose one then there is usually a fee to get it replaced (done that too).

    A drivers license seems to always have a fee, or it has for me anyway. Not to mention the written test ( didn’t they ban literacy test being used to determine if someone can vote?)

    If I own a car, or live somewhere that makes it very convient for me to register to vote then don’t I have an advantage over someone who can’t read, or drive. I thought a persons station in life was to have nothing to do with the right to vote. Those who are able to lift themselves to a position (or be born into it) should not be allowed to use this to suppress the right of others to vote. Just because “most” people have a drivers license, birth certificate, and live near a voter registration office this should not be the standard all are held to.

    Any voter registration process should be free, and any requirement to show ID should likewise be free. Being able to produce an ID that was paid for should not be allowed, as this is giving a nod to the wealth of an individual. The effort of those who would require people to show an ID to vote would not be as popular if it was equally convient (or inconvienent based upon your perspective) for all.

    This is “protecting the vote” to GOP. I think they consider any vote for a Democrat to be voter fraud.
