Tell that to Al Franken. It is always a "small" problem, because that is how it succeeds. It only needs to shift a few hundred votes, or even a few dozen, as even one vote over your opponent in a district will allow you to claim it.

That is why utmost security is essential: we cannot allow a rot of fraud to become so commonplace that it destroys any trust in voting, otherwise we might as well go full Roman Empire.
If you're concerned about fraud, go after election fraud. It's rampant in this country but the right refuses to do anything about it because they're the ones committing it.

You can't have it both ways, as they are contradictory.
It's a good thing that's not at all what I said. You're very close to pointing out the actual problem, though. Our elections are extremely insecure and republicans refuse to do anything about it except enact legislation to "solve" what is essentially a nonissue.

Oh, and, of course, the scaremongering is based on "muh Russia collusion" narrative, that was utterly disproven and thrown into the bin.
The United States is under attack by Russia. There is no denying this.

That your position is utterly self-contradictory, and makes no sense? The whole "racist Voter ID laws" are a leftist boogeyman, designed to allow the Democrats to allow Illegal Aliens to vote, and turn the entire country into a one-party dictatorship. A con game.
You don't even know how voter registration and voting itself works in my country, do you? Can you explain how you think these "illegal alien" boogeymen are voting in federal elections?

And you're backwards yet again. Republican voter disenfranchisement and consolidation of power is sending us careening into a right-wing one-party dictatorship despite what your right-wing rag there might say. Did you know that the republican SCOTUS ruled gerrymandering legal?
