It’s election year again – and that means another series of articles and cable news reports claiming that voter fraud is simply a myth that’s promulgated by Republicans intent on violating people’s right to vote. It doesn’t matter how many cases of voter fraud are actually exposed – the Democratic Party and their pals in the media continue to push the narrative that voter fraud either does not exist, or that it’s so rare that it’s inconsequential. Of course voter fraud exists. And like every other election cycle in the modern era, we need to point out the evidence ourselves rather than simply rely on the media to do it for us.
Many people on my side of the aisle are celebrating the release of Democratic National Committee emails that show that they were in the bag for Hillary Clinton all along. This is unsurprising to anyone who pays attention to politics. It’s been the disgust with the corrupt ruling elite that has fueled the candidacies of both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. The emails confirm that both of these candidates were completely correct – the system was rigged against them. Trump was adept enough to decimate a field of 16 candidates, despite the wishes of his party’s ruling elite. Sanders was not as fortunate — and that is partially his own fault.
