It gets worse every day.
Apparently some people wanted to trick Democratic voters into thinking they've already voted on line in an effort to suppress the Democratic vote.
Some people will stoop to any level to ruin our democracy.
I am lost for words but I am not too surprised. Wasn't there some kind of false press release that one of the candidates had dropped out of the race in a Midwestern primary? Ted Cruz in Iowa maybe? This kind of reminds me of the large sum of money that awaits me and all I have to do is provide my bank account to have it wired in. Then I wonder how many suckers fall for any of it.
My take on this is pretty simple. If you are so incompetent and un-informed as to how our voting system works, and you will fall for this trick, you really shouldn't be voting anyway, due to your incompetence.
My foggy, cob web ridden memory is slinking along. I think that it was Ted Cruz's camp put out a release that Ben Carson had dropped out of the race for the Iowa primary.
How bout you post your bank account info and we can find out?
Are you saying that some people are just plain stupid and that if they're stupid they shouldn't be allowed to vote???
I would say that if you don't understand our voting system by now, you are likely someone who hasn't assimilated into our society or you would have to be so incompetent that the country is better off if you don't vote.
My guess is that anyone that would fall for this trick, also couldn't pass a civics test.
If you're on Twitter, you deserve whatever you get.
