Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2017-395: Election 2018: Campaign Issues, Voter Fraud

One of the big issues that the politicians keep sweeping under the rug is voter fraud.  President Trump has appointed a commission to look into it and is meeting little besides resistance.  This would seem a no-brainer to me.  How can we have legitimate government if our elections are not run with integrity.

An article in The Daily Signal looks at the potential for fraud by the counties that have more registered voters than they have people eligible to vote.

The logical concern is expressed this way:
“When dead people or those no longer living in a specific voting jurisdiction continue to be registered there, voter integrity advocates argue, the likelihood for voter fraud increases.”
Again, that is something so clear it should require no brain to understand.  What is there to disagree about?

The response goes like this,
‘In a statement published in several media outlets, however, Grimes spokesman Bradford Queen said the Judicial Watch lawsuit is “without merit” and is an attempt to “make it harder for people to vote.”’
Taken at face value this is ridiculous.  Dead people can’t vote so how can you make it harder?  Non-citizens are not supposed to vote so why should you not make it harder? 

At the current point it is mainly the Democrats that don’t want to clean up the roles and the Democrats that are in favor of corrupt elections.  That may change in the future but that is the reality of now. 

Give it a read.  The only way you can be against cleaning up the voter roles is if you want to cheat and manipulate the elections.  I think that if this were presented clearly and repeatedly it could be a winning platform issue in 2018 and 2020.

  1. There has been fraud on both sides in the past yet percentage-wise, from everything I've read, the fraud has always been overwhelmingly democrat. Sorta tell ya sumthin'!

    1. During my awareness I would agree. Currently, no question.

      Grace and peace

  2. I wonder why Democrats never went after New Hampshire the same way they went after Wisconsin and Michigan...

    1. I think NH is one of the states that has Constitutional Carry. You don't need any silly permits to pack heat. It discourages people from messing with them. Also, there are not as many delegates to worry about.

      Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
