It’s incredible the world we live in today.
Information is readily at our fingertips, the wonders of modern technology has far exceeded our wildest imaginations of what could have been possible even a decade ago.
Two little baby boys born joined at the head were separated by Doctors at the Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx.
Thanks to the wonders of modern science.
Yet we live in a world where good is sold as evil, and lies are repeated with such frequency and conviction that to some the truth does not matter anymore, as long as their points of view wins the day.

As the American people prepare to elect the Nation’s 45th President, voters are torn between two candidates for President whom they say are the worse the nation have even had to chose from in their lifetime.
I am unsure whether the resume of the two candidates bears that out or whether a thirty year smear campaign has created a bogeyman on one side and a genuine creep on the other. One thing is certain what we hear about rigged elections is exactly the opposite of what exist in America today.

Donald Trump

According to Justin Levitt, a professor at the Loyola Law School, Los Angeles and an expert in constitutional law and the law of democracy, with a particular focus on election administration and redistricting. I’ve been trackingallegations of fraud for years now, including the fraud ID laws are designed to stop. In 2008, when the Supreme Court weighed in on voter ID, I looked atevery single allegation put before the Court. And since then, I’ve been following reports wherever they crop up. [New evidence that voter ID laws ‘skew democracy’ in favor of white Republicans] To be clear, I’m not just talking about prosecutions. I track any specific, credible allegation that someone may have pretended to be someone else at the polls, in any way that an ID law could fix. So far, I’ve found about 31 different incidents (some of which involve multiple ballots) since 2000, anywhere in the country. To put this in perspective, the 31 incidents below come in the context of general, primary, special, and municipal elections from 2000 through 2014. In general and primary elections alone, more than 1 billion ballots were cast in that period. Some of these 31 incidents have been thoroughly investigated (including some prosecutions). But many have not. Based on how other claims have turned out, I’d bet that some of the 31 will end up debunked: A problem with matching people from one big computer list to another, or a data entry error, or confusion between two different people with the same name, or someone signing in on the wrong line of a poll book.

Former Breitbart boss Steven Bannon

This is just one Professor who have done yeoman’s work in digging deeper into the swamp to determine whether there is any truth in what Donald Trump and his surrogates are saying .
The sitting secretary of state of the state of Ohio, a republican, a state which has a republican Governor , just yesterday said there is no voter fraud and the elections cannot and will not be rigged.
Republican after Republican have come out against the notion that the elections will be rigged, or that there is widespread voter fraud across the country.

The fundamental thing about the American democracy is that it prides itself on the fairness of the process and the peaceful transfer of power which succeeds each election.
What does it say about a potential candidate for President who would instigate his followers into believing that somehow the process which has 50 different elections on election day is somehow rigged?
This is a country which fought a civil-war . It is a country with a lot of racial and other divisions, . Candidates of both political parties of the past have always been magnanimous even when there were doubts as there was in 2000.
In that instance Al Gore was extremely gracious to George W Bush even though he had won the popular vote and been declared the winner before the US Supreme Court stopped the vote and gave the election to Bush.
If ever there was a case to be made that the results were arrived at dishonestly that was it yet Gore conceded defeat and went his way.
So why are Donald Trump and his surrogates saying this when it is clear there is absolutely no truth to what they are saying?
There are rumblings that Donald Trump is trying to break the Republican party into two groups . One group which comprises the establishment center-right of the party and the other, the Alt Right crowd inspired by ( Steven Bannon , the likes of Roger Ailes, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and other noisemakers on talk radio who propagate hatred and separation.


The goal it seem, is to break-away a sizeable chunk of the most hard-core supporters of the Republican Party and bring them to a Trump type media conglomerate where they may have a true home to spread their hatred. Much like in the FOX network vein.
Either way the disgraced alleged sexualul harrasers , Roger Ailes and Donald Trump have a home alongside Steven Bannon to make money from the ignorance of their followers.
Checkmate Donald Trump.
The Republican party is the party which over the years have taken extreme steps to limit voter participation . In States like Texas, North and South Carolina and throughout the midwest, Republican Legislatures have taken steps to make voting more difficult. Last cycle even in Pennsylvania the Republican secretary of state conceded that the idea was to keep Obama’s supporters away from the polls which he thought was a good way to guarantee a win for the nominee Mitt Romney.
In Florida just last week a Federal judge overruled governor Rick Scott and extended voter registration after Scott sought to cut off voter registration early.

Roger Ailes

The US District Court ruling comes after the Florida Democratic Party sued, seeking an additional week due to the “strong likelihood” many of the state’s voters would be “severely burdened” by the hurricane’s fallout in the upcoming election.

Florida Republican Gov. Rick Scott had time to register. Why would a caring Governor not want all residents of the state to register to vote ,unless of course if he believes that those voters are not likely to support his party?
Yes there are plans to steal the election , there always were . But this is a case of those crying the loudest are the most culpable.
