Which is the bigger issue— disenfranchising voters or voter fraud?

lt danial

Disenfranchised voters pose a far greater threat to our democracy than anything that we can imagine, because if we don’t have participation we have the electoral college which will never elect the right person.

Voter fraud is a scam, it doesn’t exist. It's a myth. The numbers are less than .001 percent voter fraud, pretty much anywhere you look in this country. It’s a ruse for restricting access to the vote, which we’re all constitutionally entitled to.

I think it’s disenfranchising people. Voter fraud is not an issue. The percentage is so low, it's not an issue. I hate politicians.

I think they’re equally awful. I think that people need to know that they have the right to vote and they should always have the right to vote. We fought long and hard for that, and that right should never be taken away. Fraud is such a bad thing because we don’t get the true answers of what people want.

I think disenfranchising is a bigger issue. I think that voter fraud is more of a platform for Republicans.

Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California. SB 1000, also known as the Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Act, was proposed to provide vital information to consumers about the harmful effects of consuming sugary drinks, such as sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened teas.
