Ben Skupien, a registered voter who now lives in Northern Virginia, is pretty typical. He has moved repeatedly over the years and says he's probably registered to vote in about a half-dozen states.

Considering how well the government manages to oversee welfare fraud and is on top of overseeing veterans' benefits, I can't see a problem here with voter fraud.

Colorado GOP Probe of Alleged Voter Fraud Comes up Empty

Despite the GOP’s continued efforts to scare the public into believing in-person voter fraud is common, in order to justify their voter suppression tactics, the Colorado investigation reveals once again that in-person voter fraud remains exceedingly rare. Secretary of State Gessler’s Office identified seventeen cases they thought worth investigating and all seventeen came up without a single instance of fraud detected. So far the state of Colorado has identified one case of voter fraud in the last five elections, a single solitary case from 2004 that was discovered too late to prosecute because the statute of limitations had expired.

They don't have the skills to discern the truth. They boast about their contempt for education; you're a "snob" if you've attended college. Every chance they get they mock our educational system because it failed them, or more correctly, they failed in it. The only attribute rightwingers consider worthy is the ability to whine.

Dead people are routinely reported to Social Security by funeral directors, in exchange for a bounty. These reports could easily be shared with voter registrars.

No. The country was being invaded by a foreign army from a communist country. That doesn't qualify as a police action. Who started that lie? Oh, yeah. The same people who started the entire system of lies about Vietnam to entire population was duped with. The Democratic Party.

Would you rather have cycles, or constant poverty enslaved in a communist state?
