Early Voting Is Dangerous

"News" Incentives Should Be Warnings

The lamestream media told you:

Be sure to register for early voting. Your vote counts.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Do NOT vote early.

It helps guarantee your vote will NOT count.

The nation is supposed to rise up as one, on a single day, and choose our next elected leaders. It makes us a political unit, cohesive, from many, one. E pluribus unum. This is important.

That's the plan. It's a good plan. I'm not going to go into all the reasons, look it up if you want to understand your nation better. This 1994 paper, when early voting was rare, describes it pretty well.

Spreading the election over a month or more is practically a plot. It wipes out the original inspired plan. Between the bogus early date and the real constitutional election date, candidates die, get murdered, they are arrested, they withdraw, you learn they are lowdown sly lying sidewinding snakes worse than you knew, and worse. Your vote gets wasted.

In the recent primaries hundreds of thousands of people early voted for Canadian-Cuban-American Ted Cruz who was on the ballot but no longer running. The same for Cuban-American Marco Rubio. They wasted their votes. You know who you are. But it gets worse.

The live tallies election night count real votes. Early votes sit in envelope boxes to get opened and counted later -- only if the election is close enough statistically to matter. Is that what you want?

Yeah, I know the arguments. Early voting is so convenient! Voting is not about convenience, it's about running America. I don't want to miss voting! You don't miss an airplane, don't miss the vote. I have to tell you this? I may be out of town and need an absentee ballot! Did I say anything about legit absentees? Sheesh.

But again, the main thing is the spirit of the thing. Rise up with your neighbors and select your leaders on the same day. Don't spread it out over an arduous month so the election becomes an afterthought. So the choice is made before election day -- that practically is a plot.  Sure, I wish we had better choices than we do. I always do. And I admit to having no solution to that conundrum.
