Leftists lie about this issue for one reason and one reason only: they typically benefit from the illegal vote.
Combine that with the idea that many leftists, such as the Clintons, would sell their own children to get elected and, well, you've got a match made in heaven... or hell, as the case may be.
Recently, more and more proof has surfaced that the left generally are doing all they can to get people... and use people... dead or alive... to vote. Feast your eyes on this:
More:This week, liberals have been repeating their frequent claim that voter fraud doesn’t exist. A recent Salon article argues that “voter fraud just isn’t a problem in Pennsylvania,” despite evidence to the contrary. Another article argues that voter fraud is entirely in the imagination of those who use voter ID laws to deny minorities the right to vote.By John Gibbs
Yet as the election approaches, more and more cases of voter fraud are beginning to surface. In Colorado, multiple instances were found of dead people attempting to vote. Stunningly, “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.
In Texas, authorities are investigating criminals who are using the technique of “vote harvesting” to illegally procure votes for their candidates. “Harvesting” is the practice of illegally obtaining the signatures of valid voters in order to vote in their name without their consent for the candidate(s) the criminal supports.
These are just some instances of voter fraud we know about. It would be silly to assume cases that have been discovered are the only cases of fraud. Indeed according to a Pew Research report from February 2012, one in eight voter registrations are “significantly inaccurate or no longer valid.” Since there are 146 million Americans registered to vote, this translates to a stunning 18 million invalid voter registrations on the books. Further, “More than 1.8 million deceased individuals are listed as voters, and approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state.” Numbers of this scale obviously provide ripe opportunity for fraud.
That's the reality.
That the left does not want accurate and legal voter registrations, done by American citizens and American citizens alone, tends to speak for itself. And it's time to put an end to it.
For years now, I have been demanding that, on a date certain, all voter registrations in the United States be invalidated.
We could set up a period of time, say, 6 months, where we each could register with new voter registrations. To be accepted, we would have to present ourselves IN PERSON, to either a DMV office with license renewal or a county auditor's office along with a birth certificate or passport or similar proof of identification.
Those unable to do so because of physical infirmity could request that the auditor's office of their county send someone to their location to assist them in filling out their registration.
And on a date certain... say, next August 1st, if you haven't registered with proof of citizenship, IN PERSON, then you can't vote again until you have completed that task.
Is it difficult? Expensive? Cumbersome? Time consuming?
But then, how much is the security of our voting system worth?
What if, for example, Hillary gets elected and we discover it was because of illegal voters?
For that matter, what if the DOG CATCHER is elected for the same reason?
Leftists, of course, would flip out at the very idea of it. But, as I say, that's because they benefit from the illegal vote... which is, in part, why they are so hot to allow illegal aliens to stay and so giddy over the idea of opening our borders to the security risks inherent in unvetted "refugees" who lack the guts to stay home and fight for their freedom.
Naturally, they'll claim that such an idea is racist. That there would be no restriction based on color and such a plan would be just as likely to nail an illegal from Stockholm as it would from Mexico City is neither here nor there. They have their boat and they damned sure don't want us rocking it.
At some point, we are going to have to find a way to scrub the voter rolls out. I've been pondering this for years and the reality is that there is no other way.
If there is one, I'd love to hear it. But I am sick to death of illegals and dead people voting and it's about time we did something about it.
And now's as good a time as any.
