There is something that concerning the left and their attitude to mail in voting, and no ID at the polls that requires such logical gymnastics that it amazes me that nobody discusses it.
We have been told for years by the Bernie Bros in general and the Democrats in particular the big corporations can’t be trusted. That they use connections in the government to get favorable status over labor and individuals in order to gain wealth and power over them.
We are told that the oil companies, the drug companies, the mining companies and especially the banks are all conspiring to use the laws to feather their own nests and get their cronies in so they can build their wealth and power on the back of the people and the planet.
Furthermore we are told that the republican party in general and Donald Trump in particular are tools of these forces acting in their interests in order to send billions, maybe even TRILLIONS of dollars their way.
And not only that but according to our friends on the left President Trump used collusion and intimidation to get power and is using said power to hold that office for the sake of his own wealth and the wealth of his friends.
There is a solid 20% of the country that believes all of these things and as much as 45% who believe most of this, so I address the following question to all of you:
Given that all of the wealth and power that is available through the power of the government is at stake and further given that you already claim that Donald Trump has cheated in the last election and will do so in the next, why do you assume that the big corporations with millions at their fingertips, the Russians with billions at stake and Donald Trump who you distrust more than either would not use mail in voting and the lack of voter ID to commit fraud?
I mean given the billions at stake, their resources which would allow them to use a mail system or fake identities on a national scale to commit fraud it seems incredible that you would endorse such a system and trust Corporations, Putin and Trump not to try to game it. Why if we didn’t know better one might thing there was some other ulterior motive to this sudden trust of these folks.
