Voter fraud affects all Americans

I have thought long and hard on this subject both in 2016 and in 2020. Voter fraud seems to be the most current topic of conversation on social media, mainstream media, coffee tables, and family gatherings. The subject is dominating the political atmosphere of America but one thing is certain, voter fraud affects all Americans.

The first point I would like to call attention to is the very fact that voter fraud is so dangerous because one person (or more) are placing their views above that of their neighbors, family, friends. Why does that person believe that their opinion is the only opinion that matters, a little pompous if you ask me.

Second is that person(s) have stripped the rights from another American, a right that is inherently American. Our right to vote, is in my opinion is sacred, is a civic duty, and a citizens responsibility. To openly attempt to overt the process and replace my right by negating my vote, well that is just simply untolerable.

I get angry when I read stories of voter fraud, an issue I have personally had a hand in policing for more than 20 years. That leads me to point number three. If at any time voter fraud is suspected, it should be investigated fully. I do not care which side of the aisle you sit on, don’t care if you are red or blue or purple, it must be investigated.

The mainstream media has ignored the voter fraud issues with the 2020 election. I’m saying there is voter fraud, but I’m saying that there is enough discrepecies that warrant the investigation. In 2016, we as US citizens endured the mainstream media with “Russian Influence” and “President Trump Collusion.” Did Trump Collude with Russia, no, that is what a detailed investigation found to be true. Did Russia influence the 2016 election through fraudulent social media postings, yes, that’s is what the investigation concluded.

This article is not about which side of the political parties you are on. It’s about the process that is the very definition of America. We the people deserve a fair, impartial, accurate and “clean” election.

I believe that mail-in ballots are a source for fraud, I also believe that in some cases they are neccessary to insure all voters the opportunity to vote. I was in the Navy and I was in Beruit when I cast my vote for Ronald Reagan. I would like to continue to believe it was counted properly.

I have to think that as Americans, with our technology capibilities, a better, more secure election would be held. In 2016, two criminal convictions for “Fraudulent Use Of Absentee Ballots” are reported by the Herritage Foundations. In fact, since 2005, when the Herritage Foundation began collecting the data listed are 35 cases and conviction for “Fraudulent Use Of Absentee Ballots.”

These seem to be the leading cause of voter fraud in the United States. So, what can be done? How do we have a more secure voting system? These are questions I keep seeking answers for.

Now my final point and this one is close to home. In Mexia, Kelly Reagan Brunner, a social worker in the Mexia at the State Supported Living Center (SSLC) is now being charged with 134 counts of voter fraud. According to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, Brunner allegedly submitted voter registration applications for 67 residents without their signature or effective consent, while purporting to act as their agent.

Reportedly, some of these people that Brunner submitted applications for had been declaired metal impared to the point that could no longer vote in the state of Texas.

What gives her the right to believe she is above all of us? What gives her the right to work to negate the very democarcy that serves all Americans. What gives her the right... nothing and she deserves to get what is coming next and that is the full force of the Texas Attorney General’s office and a sentance in prison where all her rights will be negated.

Is it idealizm? Is it greed? What provokes these people to commit this crime. I have written story after story regarding voter fraud. Sometimes it is political position and sometimes the offender has just been paid to do “vote harvest,” whatever the reason, prosecutors need to prosecute these offenders.

As for now, I do not expect a change in the race for President, but Trump supporters are holding on and Biden supporters are celebrating. We shall see how it all turns out.

I do agree that the main stream media should not call an election until the votes are all counted and certified valid. Seems a little pompous to me to think your opinon is above the facts of an actual election.
