We observe and discuss both sides. We vote on a work day on a Tuesday in November. Some say this makes voting difficult and exclusionary. We can see by results, that many eligible voters just don't vote. Then there is redistricting, new rules put forth for voter eligibility, identification requirements etc. Both side cry foul and the division grows deeper. T ...[text shortened]... primaries don't even get to vote on the full field of candidates. Is our system flawed or fair?
Both. Any system will be flawed, so imo that is a given. But it's relatively fair compared to other systems of elections and governing. For example, systems that punish free speech rather than encourage it allow for false and misleading ideas to go unchecked, such as the phoney idea of "voter suppression".
According to the left wing school of thought we are encouraged to believe voter fraud is okay simply because some people are calling it 'voter suppression'.
Voter suppression is wrong and voter fraud is wrong, but they are not the same thing... discouraging voter fraud is not the same thing as voter suppression.
This false equivalency is not a mistake. It was intentionally devised to mislead people for the purpose of gaining an advantage. Anyone who complains about discouraging what in reality is voter fraud has either been misled, or knowingly wants to gain an unfair advantage by way of fraudulent means.
