Okay, I lied. About there being no post, I mean. Though the title is obviously a lie too.
Yes, I can hear a lot of you huff “prove there was fraud” and “It was womyz/those darn kids/people who tan! The evil bastages! Not fraud.” Then there’s the subset of Libertarian crazy — they’re my people, doesn’t mean I don’t see where they’re insane — who assumes that the country is their own personal circle and huffs “It was those darn socons pushing soconny things.”
Frankly? You’re all full of sh*t. It was the fraud.
Do I have evidence? Really solid, can bite into it evidence? Well, no. Fraud well done, or “customary” as ours is leaves traces, but those are covered up so fast that you can’t find “solid evidence.” Though there is, of course, but isolated. I just don’t have time to do a crawl on it for this post, because I have an alleged real life that, at least allegedly, means I have to write fiction, unpack rooms and assemble furniture. Also, those “This county had x” gets dismissed out of hand as “oh, that doesn’t matter. It’s just a blah blah blah and not enough to explain the results.” Which is bullshit, because there’s such thing as cumulative evidence. In this article I’m going to allude to things I remember, which you can find with minimum google fu. Diving into them would be a full time job. I can’t do it. (Though I’m trying to brainstorm a systematic way to identify instances of fraud and their impact, but not with this whole group, and not right now. Yes, there might be something afoot. Or we might be nuts. We’ll find out, right?)
As with covidiocy, I can’t tell you all the exact numbers from everywhere, but I can go on horse sense and tell you you’re absolutely wrong on your “but it was just–“
Sure, if women didn’t fall for propaganda (fewer and fewer every year, but hey) and if young people were indoctrinated by Marxists in our educational system, and if a lot of people who can tan weren’t sold on some version of CRT (largely in the same system, btw) then EVERYONE would vote rationally. Or at least 75% of them. (The idiots and crazy you shall have with you until the end times, I’m afraid.) In which case… well…. if we don’t give the Democrats time to ramp the fraud up, we might win enough to clean up the electoral system. It’s possible. If we gave them time to ramp up the fraud, though, we’d be in the same position, with people trying to come up with excuses why this happened. So, yeah, the indoctrination into lies of a vast majority of the population is a problem and a contributing factor. Not THE factor though.
So, let’s dispose of the “it was” in turn (Note I’m ignoring most exit polls, because they haven’t been super reliable the last few years. Being accosted outside your voting place, are you going to admit to having voted a way you think your buddies will hate? Probably not. Someone said I make my assumptions unverifiable by dismissing the “evidence”. Maybe. There are other things to support the idea, more solid than “evidence” that is by and large tainted/unverifiable/irreproducible. And no, you can’t be more mad about that than I am. A rational society needs solid data. We no longer have that, and it was never that solid, even in the past.):
1-Women. Eh. Some. I mean, women have always broken more for the dems. And yes “abortion.” Now I don’t have numbers on this (other than the fact that abortion numbers fall — in the absolute — year over year, for the last 3? decades. Look it up) but I can tell you, having lived as a woman in the US for almost 40 years, the most fervent “abortion as a single issue” vote is mostly the province of women about 10 years older than I, who were told liberation came because of abortion (it was contraception, but never mind) and that without it, they’d be Victorian women. Also who on average had a lot of abortions, as a generation. Those women are now in their 70s, which correlates with a group no one blames but is more likely to be the biggest blame other than fraud.
Other than the professional protesters of the left — did you see a lot of public outrage from women? Other than auntie nut and cousin big mouth screaming?
Women have always broken more dem than men. AND there is a group of them that is becoming redpilled at speed due to what’s happening in schools.
So did women on average vote more dem than rep? Sure. Probably. But probably by a slimmer margin than before.
2- Those darn kids.
Perhaps I’m strange here, but at the eve of my sixtieth birthday, I have a startlingly clear image of when I was one of those darn kids.
In retrospect, though I didn’t vote that way and always considered myself anti-communist, I’d swallowed so much of their premises and assumptions that the only reason I remained anti-communist was sheer stuborn horse sense, and an idea what they were selling was too glittery to be wholesome.
Zs and Ys are doing exactly what every generation before them did. When the preponderance of them hits mid thirties, they’ll break to the right of Lenin, because life will have beaten the shiny indoctrination out of them.
I want to note however that it’s actually factually impossible for there to be more of them than there were of us AS A PROPORTION OF THE POPULATION. (And given very flawed censuses and all.) This is because people are in fact living longer and our population is far more “aged” than it was when I was one of those durn kids.
To the extent they are a measurable slice of the population it’s bolstered by “immigrants” who are “children” – most of which actually aren’t, and have no business voting in our election.
So, proportionately they’d have a much smaller impact in the election. Because logically if there’s a proportionately larger “older person” group, they have more influence.
3- People who tan.
Yeah. Though have you noticed this is no longer a universally safe assumption to make. And I mean safe from the POV of reality agreeing with it, not “socially safe.”
And we’re well past the “if x and y abandon the dems, the dems don’t have a chance.”
So that’s not it. No, they can’t bolster it with young voters. Not enough of those by percentage.
5- It’s all the socons
If you think that, you MUST get out of your circles and go talk to real people. Yes, they’re icky. They’re also the vast majority.
Look, I was for gay marriage before Obama. I don’t care what drugs you do. It’s your body. I think abortion should be safe and rare, but I think if we settle on European norms and then work on making it unthinkable for most of the population, culturally.
I AM A RAGING LEFTIST compared to most people in America. Get out of your university campus, your sheltered “highly educated” (bachelor counts) clique. Get out of the “work with my mind” class. Go talk to real people. Even those of no organized religion (no aspersions considering how far left most CHURCHES including mine have gone) are …. uh.
No they wouldn’t gay bash, but they really, really, really don’t approve of homosexuality and think if you just have will power and aren’t crazy, you’ll be hetero.
Their wife might have an abortion, if there’s absolutely no other choice (more likely their girlfriend, TBH) but most of them just welcome the kid. (And keep it. Even when adoption would be better.) And they are not going to approve of late term abortion. Even if they think it’s sometimes needed, they’re not going to vote FOR THAT when their pocket book is screaming and they can’t afford fuel. That takes dedication. The general public isn’t dedicated to abortion.
They might maybe smoke a little weed on weekends, if they’re under thirty, but they’re absolutely sure in their heart of hearts those other people should NEVER touch it.
The average person not only isn’t devoted to laissez faire laissez passer, they certainly aren’t devoted to it in defiance of their well beings, pocket book and “being able to feed my family.”
YOU might think socons are disgusting, but for most of the people in this country, including the rapidly growing Spanish-speaking community, “If it was good enough for my pappy it’s good enough for me.”
They’ll tolerate their gay friend, their pot smoking kid, and won’t throw out their daughter who had an abortion, but that’s personal. For the public realm, I’d say the public “temperature” is around 1958.
They might not go out of their way to forbid all this stuff, but they also won’t go out of their way to enforce it. And other real world considerations intrude.
5- And far more believable as a group, though that again overlaps with fraud:
Old people. No, seriously. Old people are almost universally left. And as a percentage of the population, there’s more of them than ever before.
There are reasons for this. Mostly that most of them grew up with news media they considered trustworthy and weren’t flexible enough to realize they no longer were, when that became obvious. So, of course, they cling to the TV and other sources that they grew up with/were adults with.
I feel like I’m just at the edge of the group that could realize the sources were tainted, though exceptional people up to ten years older than I have also see it.
Here the problem is not just that they believe the media wholesale and are to an extent — as every older person does — living in the past, the media they trust has also ratcheted uniformly further left, so that “to the left of Lenin” has now become “Maoist crossed with Green Fever Dreams.”
This switcheroo being universal and older people trusting the media (an being truly isolated from the workaday world) means they now assume the “truth” is well…. Maoist and Green Fever Dreams.
This accounts for my mom, who was always anti-government buying the covidiocy so wholesale she’s still taking “boosters.”
And it accounts for a lot of old people in the US thinking Jan. 6 was “worse than 9/11” or “treason” while being blythely unaware that Russia! Russia! Russia! about Trump was not only debunked, but utter bullsh*t.
Was it enough to turn the election? Well, I don’t think so, but honestly? More plausible than any of the others, particularly when you consider a lot of this demographic is in nursing homes, and no longer directly aware of the cost of food, rents or gas. I’m mentioning this, btw, because it is IMPORTANT to be aware of it. This demographic will only grow. We’re all headed there, if we live long enough. And it’s something that we’re not prepared for because our system was not designed at a time when an over preponderance of the elderly and confused was even a possibility.
This overlaps with fraud with vote harvesting. I didn’t have a problem so much with MIL being helped to vote democrat, because had she been in her right mind she would have. But the fact is by 2016 her opinion was about as valid as my cat’s (and maybe less) since high-sugar dementia had set in and she was never wholly sure of who she was, who her family members were, or if her husband was her husband or her father. (They look/ed nothing alike.)
Anyway, onwards, let me now list the factors that facilitate fraud, and I’m sure I’ll forget some, but bear with me, okay?
1- Vote harvesting.
This is the nice young lady (coff) who goes around neighborhoods and promises to deliver your vote to you to the right station/poling box, etc.
This not only gets confused seniors, but also any number of harassed housewives who don’t follow politics. “Oh, good, I don’t have to go.”
Are they all above board? Well, no. In fact several have been caught making up votes wholesale. But it’s much harder to catch them when they are merely cross indexing, seeing your family is registered republican, and burning your ballot or “losing” it to the landfill.
There is also the harvesting in nursing homes, notably in the memory wards. This part is outright evil. Also in college campuses, where the students are often encouraged to dual register, and might not even know it’s illegal (in state of residence and college.)
Not to mention harvesting in ESL, recent immigrant, not citizen areas. You’d be amazed how many of these people have no idea it’s illegal to vote here, or that they’re not automatically “Americans” when they step off the plane/boat/ truck. Heck, a lot of American citizens are unclear on this. I still run into people who think I became a citizen when I married.
This is exacerbated by:
2- Vote by mail, particularly with the mailing of unsolicited ballots.
I’m not absolutely sure what the percentage of states is that does this (anyone know?) but I keep hearing of it being done in places we think of as voting in person, so my guess is “A lot if not most of the states.”
Do I need to outline the possible exploits from this?
Let’s say the LEAST offensive is what would have happened had there been Vote by Mail 40 years ago: My MIL would have voted for the entire household. She would have stood over husband and children, make sure the ballot was “appropriately” marked, and dropped them off herself.
Now, sure, I could do that too. I don’t and haven’t. (Though in 16 we all voted at the kitchen table, for solidarity, because we were sure it was going to end badly. I didn’t look at their ballots, though.) And the fact is people on the right are less likely (not totally unlikely. I know some tyrannical families nominally on our side) than people on the left. Because we believe in individual over the collective, and we believe in freedom of belief. The left, however has become a cult, and everything must be done to “win” and retain power.
But after that? the sky is the limit. For instance, when we moved into our moderate sized home in downtown col springs, we got … I think it was 89 notices of elections for 89 different names. None of which were names of former owners. Either totally fictitious people had been registered by the former left-hippie-dippy owners, or a lot of college students had been persuaded it didn’t matter if you voted both places, and here, you can use my address. My experience is by no means unique.
We have all heard of the hundreds of people registered to vacant lots, right? The ones you hear are the tip of the iceberg.
Then there’s the same games as with ballot harvesting. Things can happen to ballots from the “known to be republican” neighborhoods. Etc. etc. ad nauseum.
Oh, yeah, a lot of people also show up to vote in person and are told they already voted by mail. Yes, there are documented cases, not systematic, because how do you systematize that.
It is curious, don’t you think, that no state that has gone completely vote by mail ever goes GOP again?
This is worsened by:
3-Dirty Voter Rolls.
In Colorado Springs a lot of 145 year olds were voting. Pauses. Think on that for a moment.
More importantly, and to many people shockingly, you aren’t asked for proof of citizenship when getting a driver’s license, even if you show a foreign passport. You kind of have to fight hard for “motor voter” not to register you to vote. I should know this, since I have an accent you can cut with a knife. Never asked to see passport/citizenship papers. Apparently is so as not to offend immigrants. (rolls eyes.) Like I don’t know I have an accent.
Are there a ton of those? well…. maybe not per year, but it accumulates: exchange students, foreign university students, foreign journalists, people who work here for a few years. Most of them don’t even know that registering to vote is illegal. The nice people at the DMV do it automatically, so it must be legal and the thing to do, right?
More importantly, whether they vote dem or not (and they might, because they don’t know anything, and the news says….) they will, after they leave. It’s one more registration/mail ballot for organized fraud to exploit.
This is worsened by:
4- Insecure ID
I don’t need to belabor the fact that you need an ID to have a bank account, buy liquor or cigarettes, go to the doctor, take certain tests, enter certain buildings, get health or food benefits, etc. etc. etc. ad nauseum.
BUT asking for an ID to vote is suddenly “racist” and a “Poll tax.”
The problem is not an isolated “someone voted in my name” it’s a “people bused around to vote repeatedly in names that never vote. This has been going on since the Republic was formed, but now it’s massively worse because a bus of people can hit most of the state, and sometimes surrounding ones. It’s crazy.
This is exacerbated by:
5- Same day registration.
Seriously people. Yes, some states have boundaries on that. Not all. Some you have to show proof you live there, but are you also voting in your old precinct?
I recognize there are — rare — occasions that make this needed. Like, you moved two days ago. But on the serious? WTF EVEN?
This would have happened to us if we’d moved this year, and if CO had vote in person or mostly in person vote. We’d not have been registered to vote here, and …. well, we might have cared enough for a two day drive back to vote, but it’s unlikely.
However, the legitimate uses of this are I’m sure MINIMAL. It’s a case of “If this happens I’m screwed, because the world isn’t possible.”
The illegitimate cases? Oh, baby baby. That bus you’re driving around? They can all register on the spot. Even when you ask for documentation that consists of a letter sent there? All you need is the name and an address in that precinct. Dudes, I could mass produce “evidence” including what appears to be cancelled mail. (No one is going to test that cancellation with chemical analysis, okay?) And that’s me, who am only one person and not particularly tech/graphics.
All of which is complicated by
6 – Early voting.
If you are a legitimate voter voting early gives the left the scope of the amount they need to fraud. If you’re not legitimate and voting in someone else’s name, the person will come in and literally be unable to do anything. You can’t find the fraudulent vote and remove it from the total. At most you cast a “provisional” ballot which won’t even be read unless the total of votes of the winner is less than the provisionals. And that’s …. including the fraudulent vote.
People allowed to vote provisionally are appeased, and never realize at best their vote will be 1/2 a vote. At very, spectacular best.
All of which is rendered moot/piled on top by
7 – Machine fraud.
Look, I have lived my entire married life with someone who works with computers. Electronic voting is inherently insecure and will always be.
Throw in companies that are notoriously opaque about software and the only way to make this seem even vaguely sane is to assume they’re installed by people who want to facilitate flexible fraud on an industrial scale. THERE IS NO OTHER REASON.
Yes, machines are convenient. You get older, your eyes are going, you take forever to vote, people in line need to go to work, etc.
Note, I have no problem with a machine that just marks the ballot and spits it out for you to verify (and reads those marks, not others on the back of the ballot) be it mechanical or even electronic. But we need the end result to be a marked ballot you can verify.
Now, those seven means of fraud…
MOST of which facilitate fraud on an industrial, unimaginable scale….
I have two questions for you:
1- Which side fights like crazy for each of these “improvements” and becomes rabid weasels at the suggestion one of them will be taken away?
2- DO YOU THINK THEY’RE ANGELS incapable of sin? Because that’s what it takes to believe given all this there isn’t some fairly large scale amount of fraud.
No, it’s not the 0.025 number optimists think. I’d be very shocked if it was as low as 10% at the lowest point. No one installs that many possible fraud points to not use them.
For years now I’ve had a gut feeling average was around 20%, not counting places where it’s all vote by fraud, or the happy lands of Chicago fraud.
The fact that the places that cleaned their vote — hi Florida — voted that much for the GOP seems to make that about right.
Of course I’m not hanging my hat on it. But the point is, if it were one or two points of insecurity in our elections, I’d go “Eh. Margin of fraud is probably minimal.”
But these are enough failure points to make it “The most extensive and inclusive fraud network.” To quote the turnip. This means that how you vote, and what the count is only bear a vague resemblance to each other by the sheerest and happiest of coincidences.
Now, they likely weigh how much they fraud by the local “temperature.” No one would believe a massive left victory in some states or counties. But still, they fraud ENOUGH.
And in the face of how fast things like “let’s go Brandon” went viral, or even the fact they had to fraud at the last minute in 2020 and act like people under siege ever since (the barricades. The red speeches, etc.), or a myriad other things, my suspicion is we not only have the majority, we have the overwhelming majority (except in certain pockets, but even in those be aware that preference falsification is a thing so at BEST we can say we don’t know about those specific pockets.)
If we did, how would you know?
Given the ability to make votes be whatever the left has (it’s always the left. Given the leanings of the media and a lot of the judiciary, if it were the right, we’d all know) HOW WOULD YOU KNOW HOW THE PEOPLE VOTED?
Unless you catch them by surprise, like in 2020.
So — It’s the fraud. No matter how crazy your old aunt Edna is, or that she sleeps in Biden undies, no matter how much your blue-haired niece who just came out of college kisses her Bernie poster, no matter that your wife gets drunk and votes straight dem, or that your neighbor who can tan is a fan of AOC, the problem is the fraud.
The fraud falsifies results to a point WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW PEOPLE ACTUALLY VOTED.
But you have to ask yourself: Why would the left work this hard at fraud, if it were for a tiny margin? And also: How come Trump managed to break through once, maybe twice, if it’s just all these groups who are locked into the other side? How come they spent two years telling us there was no Fraud? When it was the GOP being accused of fraud, they ignored the dems. They certainly didn’t threaten police action or worse? So, how come? Why the barricades and national guard in DC?
Look, I know you want to there not have been fraud. First, because then your vote still counts, and next time we get them for sure. That’s what held people quiet after 2020. Second, because you need to give up the idea it can’t happen in America, and that we’re unique and safe. Third because the only way back from this is going to involve all of us volunteering considerable time/money/skull sweat — no, not to campaigning — but to getting the fraud opportunities removed and Fourth, it might go kinetic if the spark comes too close to the powder barrel, and if you know there’s fraud, you’ll be conscious this is a high likelihood, and you won’t sleep well at night.
This is not my choice either. But it is reality. Reality has a way of biting you in the ass while you’re daydreaming.
And right now, though no plan for turning this around is available, knowing what the problem is is our pathway to coming up with plans. In fact, once the depression wears off (Oh, not at the results. I told you they would fraud. It’s at the three-little-monkeys reaction on the right.) I probably will start spitting out avenues for fighting back (not violently. I’m the least person to advise on those, being mostly a person who works with words, and has had no experience of violence in almost 40 years. (And that very one on one and artisanal, you might say.))
BUT before that we need to get our heads straight and start looking suspiciously at our fellow Americans.
Yes, you were robbed. Yes, you have reason to be angry. But not at groups of Americans (when did you start believing in collective guilt anyway?) rather at the fraud and the fraudsters who created the opportunities and exploit them.
It’s the fraud, stupid!
Get that through your head, and then let’s figure out how to get our country back.
