Illegal Voting

In In My Opinion..., Random Thoughts, Trump Apocalypse on January 25, 2017 at 7:11 am

screen-shot-2016-09-01-at-6-11-54-pmThere’s a certain man that won the electoral vote and believes that he would have won the popular vote if not for those pesky illegal voters. He told Congress that
3 – 5 million people voted illegally in November and I assume he thinks those illegal votes all went to Hillary, depriving him of the landslide that he thinks he deserves.

Where do I start with this story? I’m sure there are better things for this person to do with his time. As his boss, I’d love to gently suggest that he concentrate on the work of the country, not on the work of stroking his ego. That said, I personally would welcome any evidence that he or his cronies have about illegal voting. Let’s see all that evidence that he seems to be hiding.

He tweeted that he wants an investigation into voter fraud. As an American citizen, I would welcome an investigation too! Even though it may be a vast waste of taxpayer dollars, we need to settle these rumblings about widespread voter fraud once and for all. Republicans are denying citizens access to the voting booth because of their belief in widespread voter fraud. The current president thinks that he didn’t win the popular vote because of this supposed fraud. And yet the National Association of Secretaries of State, which represents many of the country’s state elections officials, said in a statement on Tuesday: “We are not aware of any evidence that supports the voter fraud claims made by President Trump…”

So let’s call his bluff and investigate. We may find out that there is widespread voter fraud. We may also find that the voter fraud invalidates his presidency. Who knows. Let’s settle the question and deal with the fallout.
