  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Quotes 193. The quote today is by Stalin. Okay.

  • This is a famous quote. "The people who cast the votes, " ( meaning people actually

  • put in the votes) " don't decide the election, the people who count the votes

  • do. " So, all right. Let's look at the note here. This quote by Stalin is basically

  • talking about fixed elections and voter fraud. So you could be putting in your

  • vote and you think it counts but if they had already fixed it before time, it really

  • doesn't matter how you vote. Now I do hope that there is some hope that we can

  • actually get people elected who are supposed to be elected, but obviously

  • this a lot of irregularities that still go on and have gone on in a number of

  • the past election, so especially in the US. . Even though, I believe this does

  • happen in quite a few countries. It happens in European countries definitely as well.

  • So let's continue. If enough irregularities or questionable

  • activities are allowed to exist then it is possible to steal elections. We are

  • aware these activities exist in countries considered banana republics

  • for tyrannical countries. But there was more than enough cheating to question if

  • an election was stolen. Here are common irregularities that I heard of in past

  • elections. There's ballot stuffing, which of course

  • means like maybe one person secretly put a lot of ballots in may be either before

  • or after the polling stations closed. Even though, this is kind of the old

  • style. I don't think this is the one that's more serious anymore. The fixing

  • of voting machines. Now this is very serious.

  • It could be done several ways. Sometimes it's even before the first person goes

  • to vote. That machine could be fixed to have like maybe in a 50,000 in favor of

  • one candidate and a minus 50,000 in the favor of another candidate. So

  • they start off with a hundred-thousand advantage. That's one way it could be

  • done. Also sometimes we've heard of irregularities where somebody pressed

  • and voted for one candidate but the voting machine showed that you the other

  • one came up. This was especially true in 2008 in 2012 or I remember a lot of

  • people saying they voted for Romney and Obama's name kept showing up. So this is

  • this is very serious, and this is one that we probably should do away with

  • electronic voting machines because even they could even be hacked into from a

  • distance from the from the polling place. Hackers could get into them. So really

  • you know we, I guess at first people thought this was the future and this was

  • advanced but actually this is among the most dangerous we should probably get

  • rid of all electronic voting machines and go back to paper trails. If we really

  • want to have fair elections and make sure the elections are what they're

  • supposed to be. Ghost voters. All right. What are ghost voters ? Ghost voters of course , are

  • people who died before Election Day, but somehow somebody went in and still voted

  • for them. So that's a ghost voter. There was a lot of ghost voters that ended

  • up in many of the past elections. I guess whoever was cheating. They obviously must

  • have looked up all the people that died. Took their name went in and voted. So

  • again, even in the US. there was a lot of this going on unfortunately. In many

  • of the past at least four or five elections, we've seen this happen.

  • Voters showing up and being told they voted already. All right. This is somebody

  • going in using their name and voting for them before time so maybe that like they

  • checked it off. Okay some voters taking advantage in voting in more than one

  • state. Of course this is illegal. But maybe if like if you lived in one or

  • worked in another you went back home and you voted twice. Or nowadays with

  • absentee ballot voting, we've heard of many people doing the absentee one and

  • then going in on the day and voting again too. Of course,

  • this does happen. Okay and any state without requiring picture

  • ID can be rife with voter fraud . Yeah. Definitely if you had the picture ID in

  • all of them you could stop making to limit some of these other problems. They

  • could probably cut down on the ghost voters. It could definitely cut down on

  • people that are voting more than once. Yeah. So it could definitely take care of

  • a lot if we actually had picture IDs, and to be honest it's kind of ridiculous we

  • don't. We require picture IDs for things that are less serious . Like you know,

  • buying cigarettes and buying alcohol They require picture ID. So I know I've

  • heard in the past where they say oh well maybe somebody be disenfranchised if

  • they don't have it. But it's kind of ridiculous. Everybody has a picture ID

  • these days. Even a person that doesn't have a driver's license in the US can go

  • to Motor Vehicles and get a license that's a non driver's license. They can

  • get this. So really mostly it comes down to that you only you only don't have

  • voter ID is if you want to do cheating. That's what it actually seems like and

  • it's also a little ridiculous too I mean we require by law that you have an ID

  • for buying cigarettes and for buying alcohol does does that mean we're

  • disenfranchising their right to buy cigarettes and alcohol you know by

  • having that law. So it doesn't really make that much sense. All right. Let's

  • continue. All right in 2008 and 2012 there were hundreds of counties that had

  • over 100 percent of voters. Or 100 percent of eligible voters voted during

  • this. That by definition means that there absolutely was cheating. So if you have

  • more than a hundred percent . First of all a hundred percent is impossible. Because

  • we know not everybody votes. Even if you had above 70 that would be fantastic.

  • But , but when you have over a hundred. God knows how many

  • cheated votes you had. How many people voted that were not supposed to vote. So

  • and again I don't really care who does it. I don't care if Republicans do this. I

  • don't care for Democrats do this. This should never be allowed on either side.

  • So you could probably you know question maybe you know some, some Democrats were

  • probably mad about the 2000 election and think that something happened there. And

  • some Republicans are probably angry about that both of 2008 and 2012 or

  • especially 2012. Where there were a lot of irregularities going on. But these

  • irregularities should never be allowed and they should be limited . So voter ID

  • is really a must. It should probably be required in every state and we should

  • probably go back to paper ballots everywhere. We should get rid of voting

  • machines because there it's just too easy to fix voting machines So anyway I

  • hope it's clear. I hope you got it Hopefully our future elections even

  • these midterm elections. There are some questions I've heard of, especially in

  • states like California that more than a hundred percent of the people registered

  • to vote. I don't even understand how they're not being taken off the list in

  • in some states like that. So anyway let's just hope that there's as little as

  • possible and this is cut down more because it's hard to have fair elections

  • without this. Anyway, thank you. I hope u it was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
