Apatocracy*


Our democratic process requires an effective system for maintaining accurate voter registration information. Voter registration lists are used to assign precincts, send sample ballots, provide polling place information, identify and verify voters at polling places, and determine how resources, such as paper ballots and voting machines, are deployed on Election Day. However, these systems are plagued with errors and inefficiencies that waste taxpayer dollars, undermine voter confidence, and fuel partisan disputes over the integrity of our elections.
Voter registration in the United States largely reflects its 19th-century origins and has not kept pace with advancing technology and a mobile society. States’ systems must be brought into the 21st century to be more accurate, cost-effective, and efficient.

Seeing as how there are more stringent ID requirements for buying Sudafed, I think it is safe to say that the requirements for voting are rather lax.  The reason for this is obvious:  politicians are less concerned about the identity of voters than allergy-sufferers.

Stated another way, it’s harder to fraudulently buy allergy meds than it is to vote.  Since politicians find voter fraud to be more personally profitable than drug fraud, the other obvious conclusion to be drawn for this current state of affairs as regards the lax ID requirements for voting is that politicians are dependent on committing voter fraud to win elections, which is why they make committing voter fraud so easy.  That politicians are corrupt is not news, by any means, but at least now it is provable.  And thus, it can be concluded that democracy in America is nothing more than a pretty lie and a complete fraud.

* “Apatocracy” is taken from the Greek word apati and kratos, which mean “fraud” and “rule,” respectively.  “Apatocracy,” then, refers to rule by fraud.  Kratos is also one of the rood words of “democracy.”

  1. We have massive voter fraud issues up here in Canada, too; enumerators go around and put people's names on the voting list without confirming their citizenship; I know of at least one or two foreign nationals who got enumerated, and were planning to vote in our election! Made me mad as hell. I'm sure they wouldn't like it if I went to their country and voted in their election. Of course, I'm sure they have more safeguards there than we do. Starting with not flooding your country with immigrants from a different civilization, and not having such people enumerating their own kind / other immigrants...

  2. @Will S.- I don't understand how letting foreigners vote doesn't piss everyone off. Obviously foreigners would be upset if you voted illegitimately in their elections. And even leftists recognize other states' sovereignty. Why then won;t they recognize their own state's?

  3. "I don't understand how letting foreigners vote doesn't piss everyone off."

    It pisses off people when they learn about it, certainly; I think far too many people don't even have a clue how widespread voter fraud is.

    "And even leftists recognize other states' sovereignty. Why then won;t they recognize their own state's?"

    Because they hate their own people. Esp. since the left no longer consists of workers' rights types - unions, labour activists, etc., and now is all about minorities, and identity politics. The identity politics crowd don't give a damn about national sovereignty, ethnic homogeneity and avoiding group conflict - they thrive under current conditions, and want things to get worse.

    It's too bad the old left died. Somebody, like Pat Buchanan tried a few years back, needs to actually represent them.

  4. @Will S.- I was referring more to the fact that leftists don't generally seem to be upset with foreign voters, at least here in the states.

    Also, if they hate it so bad here, why don't they just move? Why import someone else's culture when you can easily just go to it?

  5. Voter fraud simply *does not matter* in jusidictions where rigged, inscrutable voting machines count the vote.

  6. Paul M- Yes, if the outcome is predetermined than the issue of fraud is rendered void. However, it's still astonishing that leftists don't get upset over the challenge of state sovereignty that is represented by voter fraud.
