Patriots want to make sure that only people authorized to vote get to exercise that privilege. We want every vote to count and every eligible person to vote only once. We want each vote recorded and counted correctly. It’s pretty simple stuff. Why would anybody complain about honesty and accountability?
Every election we hear from (primarily) the Democrat party officials and handlers that “this here voter fraud thing that the Republicans keep bringing up is just to keep certain people from voting”. The poor, the elderly and minorities, Democrats say, will be disenfranchised if they are required to prove who they are. It’s an outrage to require identification at the polls.
We also hear about certain precincts having a greater than 100% voter turnout or that there was not one Republican vote in a certain county or precinct where up to 35% of the voter registrations are for Republicans.
There have also been numerous first hand stories by voters who have seen their vote for a particular person immediately change to his or her opponent or that their YES vote turned into a NO vote right before their eyes. No matter how many times they tried to correct the action, the machine would change their vote. In general, but certainly not always, the Democrat party, candidate or liberal issue is the lucky recipient of the electronic “error”.
Enter Bernie Sanders. Bernie and team are very, very concerned about the new tabulation platform developed by Microsoft for the Iowa Caucuses. The mobile app presented by Microsoft is to record the results of hundreds of caucuses and precincts and forward them to party headquarters for final tabulation. The app is meant for use by both parties, but the suspicion of wrongdoing this time is all on Sanders’ side.
Why? Why might there be a concern about program coding at this point?
Well, it seems Bernie and company recognize that Microsoft has, over the years, donated millions of dollars to Hillary, her various campaigns and political causes and the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. For some unfounded reason, Bernie and his staff feel that there might be some tainting of the results of the caucuses; some bias perhaps on behalf of his primary opponent.
Keeping with his beliefs, the self described Democratic Socialist, thinks there’s a possibility that money could influence an election outcome. He thinks that the billionaire class and corporate powers might try to hijack democracy.
Go figure. Bernie now sees the possibility of election fraud, and this is only the first vote of the primary cycle. Hillary’s campaign staff, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the DNC party bosses again laugh at the possibility of voter fraud.
