Several questions regarding elections and voting:
· Why doesn’t the federal government pay for postage for absentee ballots?
o Isn’t demanding remuneration, in essence a poll tax, from the demographic group we collectively call the Military?
o SCOTUS recently ruled that the Affordable Care Act was a tax, even though it was not called a tax.
o What is the difference between “poll tax” and “postage”?
· Is it illegal to request a $5 donation to offset the cost of early voting or absentee ballots?
o Why am I required to pay for a convenience item requested by another?
o Don’t we already do this with commuter lanes fees?
· Why don’t we require voting machines that print receipts and indicate for whom you voted?
o I was shocked to learn there was no way to see—and verify—how the machines read and recorded my ballot when I inserted the two sheets into it.
o The software and hardware already exist.
o Bank ATMs spit out paper trails for users.
o Why did our politicians and civil servants fail to faithfully accomplish this protection of our rights?
· Why are the voting fraud laws so weak and so poorly enforced?
o Why is subverting an election not considered a capital offense?
o Why isn’t this prosecuted under RICO when applicable?
o Why is the penalty for counterfeiting currency stricter than for voter fraud?
o Why isn’t the supervisor of elections in FL 18th demanding State and Federal investigations?
o Why are the supervisors of elections in Pennsylvania demanding similar investigations when there is a statistically significant deviation from norms?
o Why does anyone believe you can get 99% participation in voting—something that consumes resource—when we don’t get that level of participation in federal entitlement programs that provide “free” resource to participants?· What is the incentive for media outlets to demand reform when they make billions on political advertising during elections?
