Is Fraud An Electoral Technique?

There is much been said and written these days about the strategy used to win the last election…..some have even called it….Fraud!

To be honest….games and yes even a hint of fraud have been used in the past to win elections.

Let’s take a look at our recent past in presidential politics……

People are wondering out loud about the parallels between today’s Republican Party and organized crime, and whether “Teflon Don” Trump will remain unscathed through his many scandals, ranging from interactions with foreign oligarchs to killing tens of thousands of Americans by denying them healthcare to stepping up the destruction of our environment and public lands.

History suggests – even if treason can be demonstrated – that, as long as he holds onto the Republican Party (and Fox News), he’ll survive it intact. And he won’t be the first Republican president to commit high crimes to get and stay in office.

As you can see there is very little that is good or innocent about American presidential politics….and it only gets worse with each passing election…..where will this cycle end?

  1. This made me think about the so-called ‘secret ballot’ over here. We have to tell the registrars our name and address when we arrive at the polling station. This generates an I.D. number, which is drawn through on a list. The next person then issues us with a numbered ballot paper, (with presumably the same number) to take into the booth and mark our cross on. So, surely this means that they can check who I voted for?
    Just a thought.
    Regards, Pete.
