One of the biggest lies perpetrated by the Trump Administration and his supporters, is that “Vote by Mail” is unsafe and corrupt. There is absolutely no evidence to support such a statement. Also, the question remains, “Why would anyone believe anything the President and many Republicans say?” According to the Washington Post, as of July, 2020, Trump has lied over 20,000 times since his election, and many Republicans are habitual liars, support the President’s lies or remain silent about them.
Many supporters of the President have acknowledged he lies, but their lives are so far removed from the values we hold “dear” in America, that it does not matter to them. Centuries of lies, distortion of truth, white supremacy and total control of everything and everyone, have created deep holes in their souls. It must be a heavy burden to carry around so much hatred. Also, many watch Fox News as their primary source of information, and have a distorted view of reality. Here is an example of what MSN News says many hear on that TV station:
“Here’s a shocking thing for your audience to consider,” Stephen Miller said. “Nobody who mails in a ballot has their identity confirmed. Nobody checks to see if they’re even a U.S. citizen. Think about that. Any foreign national—talk about foreign election interference—can mail in a ballot, and nobody even verifies if they’re a citizen of the United States of America. Now, this would be happening on a scale of potentially millions of people.”
Nobody? Michigan has strict guidelines for mail-in voting…including checking the identity of its voters. The writer has voted absentee for over 18 years. It is unclear where Stephen Miller votes, but it is clear those statements reportedly made by him… are lies. It has been proven that the person who asked for and received voter assistance from a foreign nation (Russia), was President Trump. And . . .we heard him ask for it again for the 2020 Election on TV a few months ago.
INFORMATION CONCERNING ABSENTEE/MAIL-IN VOTING
Not only is it safe, it is secure and accurate — no matter what you have heard. The 2016 presidential election saw about 25% of voters, or 33 million people, cast an absentee ballot. Oregon, Colorado and Washington hold their elections entirely via mailed ballots, and counties in many other states do the same.
It’s a topic that keeps coming up. But the data shows that absentee ballots are part of a long-standing and secure procedure to accommodate voting for all eligible citizens. The Telegraph Herald
The evidence we reviewed finds that voting by mail is rarely subject to fraud, does not give an advantage to one political party over another and can in fact inspire public confidence in the voting process, if done properly. The Daily Beast
Vote fraud in the United States is exceedingly rare, with mailed ballots and otherwise. Over the past 20 years, about 250 million votes have been cast by a mail ballot nationally. The Heritage Foundation maintains an online database of election fraud cases in the United States and reports that there have been just over 1,200 cases of vote fraud of all forms, resulting in 1,100 criminal convictions, over the past 20 years. Of these, 204 involved the fraudulent use of absentee ballots; 143 resulted in criminal convictions. The Hill
THERE IS NO “BOGEYMAN”
Many people are governed by the “bogeyman” mentality…wise individuals know that is a fairy tale. Yet…there are people out there who play on your perceived fears to get conformity to their ludicrous thoughts and ideas. Here are examples: “If you don’t buy this insurance, your house is open to destruction by storms, hurricanes or such,” If you don’t take an aspirin every day, you are subject to a heart attack,” or “Blacks are going to invade the suburbs and destroy you and your home…vote for me, and I will keep them out!” Fear is an enemy which never brings positive results.
Here is a reality mister so-called Bogeyman: Over 200,000 people have died because of your lack of leadership, the economy is in shambles for most people and small businesses, and you have taught people to hate each other! Further, you have shown us with your words and actions over and over, you only care about getting yourself elected. Only people who share such insanity, support your leadership.
THERE IS NO MAIL-IN VOTER FRAUD… THAT CLAIM REALLY IS A…HOAX
DON’T GIVE UP
VOTE EARLY BY MAIL
Waiting in line to achieve a purpose, takes patience and courage…you have both.
