The fact that ALL of that happened shows a systemic problem with the face of democracy in the United States. It's not like any of this is new in US democracy, but I don't think that it's ever been this blatant and rampant. It's time for the people to rise up and take back control of their government. To the people who think Sanders plans aren't possible, there are tons of countries whose systems reflect Sanders plan, and they refute you. Though, I don't think people are mad enough yet to follow through, either that or they are too ignorant or apathetic. :(
Since the early days of the United States politics has brought out the good, great and very worst of human behavior. There is no doubt that voter fraud is a very real and growing problem. It is also a problem that is very difficult to recognize and fix. Educating voters is the best way to begin to solve the issue.
It is all citizens' right to vote and it is a big issue if those citizens begin to feel confused, unsafe, or discriminated against when voting. One of the foundations of the national is the ability for citizens to vote for their leader. If people begin to feel it is not worth the risk of having personal information disclosed or hours of asinine procedures to vote, they will not vote. If people don't vote, the system breaks down quickly.
Too many efforts are made these days to prevent people from performing a basic right: the right to vote. These efforts include disqualifications without real merit, altering registration data, and making voting procedures more complicated than they need to be. It's all part of a plan to get one party or another elected through fraud, which is indeed a blight on America's record.
The reports of mass disqualifications, tampering with registration data, confusing and arcane voting procedures, and other efforts at voter suppression are just that - arbitrary. These in no way represent a big problem, let alone a small problem. This voter suppression myth needs to be ended once and for all.
