A Halloween horror story has come to life a few weeks before the holiday actually takes place, but this ghost story is not as delightful as the ones told around the campfire. It seems as though dead people are voting all throughout the United States, but their corpses are not rising from the grave and stumbling to the polling booth — no, they have become victims of voter fraud.
This is what happens when voter registrations that are connected to deceased individuals remain in use. While liberals across the country have claimed that this really isn’t much of a problem, the statistics prove otherwise. See, it was recently reported that a staggering 18 million invalid voter registrations exist in the United States, which is more than enough to sway an entire election in one way or the other. It’s also shocking that somehow this level of corruption was able to slip through the cracks. That is, unless the federal government has been involved all along, which is never out of the question.
John Gibbs of The Federalist reports that there is a reason why the leftists continue to push their narrative, stating, “The science of criminal justice tells us that many crimes go unreported, and the more ‘victimless’ the crime, the more this happens. The fact is, a person attempting to commit voter fraud is very unlikely to be caught, which increases the incentive to commit the crime.”
To say that this is a frightening fact is a huge understatement. We should all be way more upset about this than most appear to be. After all, the right to vote should be much more sacred than it is, having this level of fraud attached to it. Our voices should matter — they shouldn’t be drowned out by 18 million fakes. It also begs the question: which party is receiving the most benefit by these fake voters existing? Perhaps the fact that we don’t know for sure is the reason why members of both the Republican and Democrat parties have been mostly silent on the issue — they know that it could be helping them get elected.
That’s the kind of behavior that we should all be trying to vote against, though.
Somehow this story would be much less frightening if zombies crawled out of the ground and began showing up at the polling places. At least there’s no widespread government corruption in that scenario.
