I am prefacing this story with my firm belief that a well planned and orchestrated massive voter fraud scheme, implemented and carried out by some on the liberal left, succeeded in stealing the election from Donald J. Trump. Let’s face it: everyone who pays attention to politics knows the election was stolen, but before presenting more intelligent arguments, I’ll put it in layman’s terms with the following “no brainers”.
Before China’s (and the Dems?) bio-attack on the world known as the pandemic, President Trump was enjoying stellar approval ratings as the country experienced unprecedented prosperity, due to the greatest economy and job numbers ever recorded. In addition, it is unheard of (and just plain illogical to believe) that an incumbent POTUS who appoints THREE Supreme Court Justices, helps put dozens of Republicans in Congress, wins hundreds of MORE counties throughout the country (than in the preveious election), gains MORE minority, gay, and women’s votes than any other Republican President in history, does NOT win re-election. This isn’t even factoring in the fact that Trump's feeble and corrupt opponent, the sheer embodiment of everything that the new left detests, did little if any campaigning. Aside from these hard facts; there is an old, but accurate saying that still holds true "The candidate with the momentum and excitement wins". President Trump was holding countless rallies with for record breaking crowd (during the heat of the pandemic) while his opponent was canceling shopping parking lot appearances due to poor turnout. The simply was NO enthusiasm Joe Biden. But aside from such supposition, there is hard evidence (and video proof) of massive voter fraud which is being documented on a daily basis.
Here are three arguments in favor of voter identification laws are that requiring voter identification prevents voter fraud, that voter identification laws do not decrease minority voter turnout, and that requiring identification to vote is not burdensome. This section will detail those arguments from a variety of sources arranged by topic.
Claim: Requiring voter identification prevents voter fraud
Hans Von Spakovsky of The Heritage Foundation wrote the following in a 2012 article titled "Voter ID Laws Protect the Integrity of Our Democracy": ALL STATES SHOULD require photo ID both to vote in person and to vote by absentee ballot (by providing a copy of the ID). This is a basic requirement to help ensure the integrity of elections. All Americans who are eligible should have the opportunity to vote, but their ballots should not be stolen or diluted by fraudulent votes. The vast majority of Americans of all racial and ethnic backgrounds support such common-sense election reform. - Hans von Spakovsky (2011)
Claim: Voter identification laws do not decrease minority voter turnout
In a 2019 article on The Heritage Foundation website titled "New Study Confirms Voter ID Laws Don’t Hurt Election Turnout," Von Spakovsky and Caleb Morrison wrote the following: “ Less than one week after Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams made inflammatory claims in her State of the Union response about an epidemic of “voter suppression” jeopardizing the character of our nation, the National Bureau of Economic Research released a study that demonstrates once again that voter ID laws have no measurable impact on voting behavior. In other words, voter ID laws don’t “suppress” anyone’s vote. This latest study echoes the conclusion of others, including a landmark report by The Heritage Foundation in 2007 finding that voter ID laws don’t reduce voter turnout, including among African-Americans and Hispanics. These voters were just as likely to vote in states requiring photo identification as in those that don’t. - Fred Lucas (2017)
Claim: Requiring identification to vote is not burdensome
In a 2013 article on The Heritage Foundation website titled "Voter ID Laws Keep Our Elections Secure," von Spakovsky wrote the following: “ People in this country need a photo ID for everyday activities — from filling a prescription to cashing checks. You need to present ID to buy a beer or cigarettes; check into a hospital or hotel; apply for public assistance; get a marriage license; buy a gun; hop an airplane … even just to enter the building that houses the U.S. Department of Justice. Is it really too much to ask for ID when it comes to exercising something as important as the right to vote? Photo ID requirements are a reasonable way to secure our elections. It’s absurd to suggest that anyone is “disenfranchised” by such protective measures.” - Kris Kobach (2011)
