The Democrats are attempting to use the coronavirus pandemic to justify replacing in-person voting with mail-in ballots in time for the 2020 election simply because they know that voter registration rolls are notoriously out-of-date, making the situation ripe for voter fraud.

How do we know this? That’s easy. Just ask yourself a simple question: Which party consistently votes against or opposes any and all efforts to require voters to show an ID before they cast a ballot?

Hint: It’s not the Republican Party.

Judicial Watch and other vote integrity groups have been filing one lawsuit after another to require localities to update their voter registration rolls as required by the federal ‘motor voter’ law. In county after county, red states and blue states, voter registration rolls have consistently been inaccurate, reflective of just how low a priority they are for jurisdictions.

Now imagine this: Democrats get their wish and somehow manage to implement a nationwide vote-by-mail initiative ahead of the 2020 election. That massive enthusiasm gap President Donald Trump has over his likely Democratic rival, ‘Sleepy’ Joe Biden, disappears because Democrats will be able to essentially steal House and Senate seats at will, and even the presidency.

You know the drill. Even in districts historically belonging to Republicans, Dem operatives will ‘suddenly find’ boxes and boxes of uncounted ballots that federal and state judges pre-selected by Democrat operatives will rule must be counted, even though no one will be certain from where they came or even if they’re valid (they won’t be, of course).

After that, Democratic victories assured, we can all kiss one of the last remaining constitutional institutes we have left good-bye: The right to free and fair elections.

President Trump clearly sees what Democrats are trying to do and what will happen if they succeed.

“RIGGED 2020 ELECTION: MILLIONS OF MAIL-IN BALLOTS WILL BE PRINTED BY FOREIGN COUNTRIES, AND OTHERS,” Trump wrote in all-caps on Twitter, Breitbart News reported. “IT WILL BE THE SCANDAL OF OUR TIMES!”

The news site noted further that the president shared a Breitbart story quoting U.S. Attorney General William Barr, who said that mail-in balloting “absolutely opens the floodgates to fraud.”

In an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo, the host asked Barr his thoughts about social media censorship of conservatives. He responded:

Yes, I am worried about censorship. I’m worried about a number of things going into the election, one, the censorship of robust debate. I’m also worried about undermining the public confidence in the integrity of the elections. The thing we have going for us, especially when there’s intense division in the country, is that we have peaceful transfers of power. And our way of resolving it is to have an election.

But when government, state governments start adopting these practices like mail-in ballots that open the floodgates of potential fraud, then people’s confidence in the outcome of the election is going to be undermined. And that could take the country to a very dark place, if we lose confidence in the outcomes of our elections.

Democrats clearly want our election outcomes to be undermined and suffer a loss of confidence, especially in the age of Trump and especially since they can’t regain control on their own based on the merit of their ideas.
