Depending on who wins an given election, one party or the other wails about voter fraud. Given the reality of Motor Voter laws and many Blue States' policies of granting drivers licenses to non-citizens, the protestations coming out of the political Right have far more merit than those of the Left.
To argue the above point is to engage in an age-old "conversation." But there is no good reason -- none whatsoever -- for anyone, be they federally or locally elected officials, to obstruct an effort to make our voter rolls completely transparent.
The right to vote in the United States is reserved, by law, to citizens. People here on visas of any kind, and those here illegally, have no right to vote. Therefore, any attempt to systematically obstruct any effort to guard the election process really should be viewed as an attempt to overthrow the US Government.
Think about it. If a political party is knowingly moving policy, regulations and legislation that would necessarily create loopholes for non-citizens to vote, then they are purposely subverting the process in an attempt to create a corrupted election result for political gain. How is that not robbing the American people of a legitimately elected representative government? How is that not an act of overthrowing our legitimate government; of treason?
Just as with Voter ID laws, political hacks always talk about the sanctity of the ballot, one man one vote, etc. But they never -- ever -- do anything to protect those things. That's because their protestations are insincere; they are full of it.
I have my issues with the sitting President on some things, but ballot integrity and crushing voter fraud is not one of them. Perhaps legislation that would refuse to certify their electoral college electors would send a message. When no Blue States could seat their electors, well...
