America Deserves Better

Timothy Birdnow

After the election of 2000 Jimmy Carter and Jim Baker ran a commission to avoid vote problems in future. They strongly recommended that mail-in voting be illegal as it is ripe for fraud. The Democrats took the report and used it as a blueprint to steal 2020.

Most nations have learned mail-in voting is a dreadful idea more suited to banana republics.

Why Do Most Countries Ban Mail-In Ballots?: They Have Seen Massive Vote Fraud Problems

Diane Kimura adds:

Most developed countries, especially in Europe, ban mail-in voting to fight vast fraud and vote buying that had threatened the integrity of their elections, according to an exhaustive review of voting rules and histories in over 30 major nations.

In the European Union, 63% have put a ban on mailing in ballots except for citizens living overseas. Another 22% have imposed a ban even for those overseas. And most of those that allow mail-in ballots require some form of photo ID to get one, according to the report from the Crime Prevention Research Center shared with Secrets.

"These countries have learned the hard way about what happens when mail-in ballots aren’t secured. They have also discovered how hard it is to detect vote buying when both those buying and selling the votes have an incentive to hide the exchange,” said author John R. Lott, the center’s president.

While politicians in the United States have been debating the pros and cons of mail-in voting due to concerns of spreading COVID-19 at the polls and new reports of postal service and vote counting issues, Lott, whose center is known for its gun research, built a voting database of the European Union and the larger Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development countries.

Those countries, said Lott, are typically held up by Democrats as a model to follow.

"Liberals and progressives often try to model the U.S. on Western European countries in many ways, but you never hear them arguing that we should adopt their voting rules. There is a reason for that. Banning mail-in voting or requiring people to use photo IDs to obtain a mail-in ballot is quite common in developed countries, especially in Europe,” he said in the report.

The report, titled Why Do Most Countries Ban Mail-in Ballots? They Have Seen Massive Vote Fraud Problems, listed the rules for voting and widespread cases of fraud and vote buying. His report also listed notable cases of fraud in U.S. voting.

He ended up calling mail-in voting a "throwback to the dark old days of vote-buying and fraud. Like most of the rest of the world, Americans deserve a more trustworthy system.”

1 Hard to believe we're looking back at Jimmy Carter as a blueprint of rectitude!

2 It is truly amazing, isn't it Dana; Carter looks like a pillar of integrity and competence.

3 Integrity, yes. Competence, no.

4 Actually I would say he was neither Dana;  Carter was sneaky and a liar and a hypocrite from my reading of him. Tip O'Neil, Democratic Speaker ofthe House, said of Carter "He came in like a prick and went out the same way."

That said he looks but tobe a man of integrity and competence next to Joe Biden.

5 True. Tip O'Neil was probably the only honest Democrat you could find. Oh, and Daniel Patrick Moynihan.
And one we just lost a couple days ago: Joe Lieberman.
