Block the Vote

While the last point made is the comparison to UFO sightings, the rest of the article contains interesting statistics on voter suppression. Some of them:
- Since 2001, nearly 1,000 bills that would tighten voting laws have been introduced in 46 states.
- 24 voting restrictions have passed in 17 states since 2011. This fall, new laws could affect more than 5 million voters in states representing 179 of the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.
- In the past two years, 5 battleground states (Florida, Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin) have tightened their voting laws.
There’s lots more. These new voter suppression laws are being enacted under the guise of “voter fraud”, but that’s a redirect. The real reason is to reduce the number of minorities that vote, who just happen to vote Democratic more often than not. This sums it up pretty well:
UFO Sightings Are More Common Than Voter Fraud.
