So Obama is putting down Trump again in his latest White House Lawn speeches, but he says there is no evidence of voter fraud ever happening.

See this for his exact quote http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/obama-assures-us-our-election-is-not-going-to-be-rigged-as-trump-says

However voter fraud has been an issue for the past few election, with dead people being registered to vote by groups to pad their numbers.

Now, I'm not expecting you to read through all these links, but its clearly an issue that come up repeatedly in multiple elections across the country, so I don't know how he can stand there and say there has never been any evidence of it happening.

Edit: I don't know the statistics of whether past fraud had any significant effect on the vote, but in a way it doesn't matter since the electoral college isn't always required to vote with the popular vote.

I don't really see a point in voting with the electoral college calling the shots

Therein lies the potential for a constitutional crisis

(as if we havent been in one for the last 15, 16 years now? or 103, now? or 148? some would even argue that the entire thing was f*d from the getgo, if you consider that the constitution was supposed to be ratified by congress - but oops, it wasnt - the crafty bastards entirely bypassed congress on the matter and created a delegation of states, which, of course, was biased.)

Down ballet. You can call candidates to see where they fall in that debate and vote for them based on that.

Let's be brutally fucking honest.

Nobody is ever honest when it comes to voting. They just want their way like a spoiled child. Like watching a game show.

It's like me saying that I never drank under age. Hmmmmmmmmm! Am I being Honest? Of course I am, who would ever do such a thing, just thinking about it makes my blood boil.


And you wonder why there are soo many idiots in the world. Do you know how easy it is to play this game? They do it everyday.

Is Hillary paying the washington post too? Reads like a campaign ad for Hillary.

I wonder if there's any goodies from her drug & gun running in arkansas when bill was gov, in the wikileaks. that's where they got their start with the cia and the entire reason they are teflon no matter what felonies they've committed so far.

but I think once the videos of bill with a 13 year old come out and she covered it up, not too many people will forgive her for that, even if they will forgive her for committing treason on the usa.

There will always be some level of fraud. Its the cost of doing business. Its an acceptable risk you take for, you know, democracy.

That said a goodly chunk of "voter fraud" is simply errors and the overall rate of it in the US is completely insignificant. It simply doesn't happen often enough to sway an election result.
