The only thing progressive about the current wave of Democrats is their willingness to achieve their political objectives by any means necessary.
That includes intimidation through the use of violence violence, limiting your First Amendment rights, eviscerating your Second Amendment rights, and by voter fraud.
Now Democrats are using the current crisis to extend their opportunities for the employment of fraudulent voting schemes.
Progressive organizations, many backed by billionaire activist George Soros, are at the front lines of a campaign advocating for a “vote by mail” system in the upcoming presidential election, citing fears that the Chinese coronavirus pandemic makes it too dangerous to vote in person. – (Breitbart)
A recently posted article on Bloomberg sought to embarrass President Trump because he rejected Democrats’ latest scheme to institute vote-by-mail.
The article ended by highlighting the fact that President Trump… perhaps the most recognizable man in the world… would be sending his absentee ballot back by mail…
“Trump, who is registered to vote in Florida, has requested a vote-by-mail ballot in that state’s primary, according to the Palm Beach Post.”
But, absentee ballots are available to every American with advanced notice. What Democrats have proposed is not that.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to clear the way for Democrat operatives to employ a practice known as ballot harvesting.
(Breitbart) “Ballot harvesting” was legalized in California in 2016, and first used in the 2018 midterm elections. It allows anyone to drop off someone else’s mail-in ballot at a polling station. There is no process for vetting or verifying those delivering the ballots — no background checks or identification requirements. Democrats dropped hundreds of thousands of ballots off at polling stations in 2018, helping Democrats as they flipped seven Republican seats…
… Pelosi wants to take that system nationwide.
Her bill, released Monday afternoon, provides that every state:
- A) shall permit a voter to designate any person to return a voted and sealed absentee ballot to the post office, a ballot drop-off location, tribally designated building, or election office so long as the person designated to return the ballot does not receive any form of compensation based on the number of ballots that the person has returned and no individual, group, or organization provides compensation on this basis; and (B) may not put any limit on how many voted and sealed absentee ballots any designated person can return to the post office, a ballot drop off location, tribally designated building, or election office.
In other words, paid party operatives can literally truck thousands and thousands of ballots to the polls, provided they earn a salary or fee, and are not paid by the ballot.
It is a practice that is known in Third World countries as “ballot stuffing,” and is outlawed in every democracy, no matter how poor — even in countries where the physical and administrative obstacles to voting are far greater than in the world’s most developed economy.

Pelosi has said she plans to seek $2 billion to $4 billion in the next coronavirus relief bill to fund her ballot harvesting scheme in the upcoming general election.
The dictatorial Speaker previously held relief to struggling American families hostage until Republicans relented and allowed her to add $ $400 million for voting by mail in the current $2.2 Trillion bailout/stimulus package.
President Trump knows the game Pelosi is playing and said he would never allow ballot harvesting to be instituted under his watch… in fact, he rightly said its way past time for voters to present their ID before being allowed to vote…
President Trump: “People should vote with ID, Voter ID.”

The argument by progressives is an old one and typically, for Democrats, condescending to minorities…
Just a question… if someone doesn’t have the ability to get an ID do they even know who or what they’re voting for?
Even worse than being condescending to minority voters, if that’s possible, the requirement to present ID prior to voting protects the votes of honest Americans whose votes won’t be diluted, or overrun, by fraudulent votes.
Why does Left oppose voter ID, cleaning up election rolls, and citizenship verification to register to vote — while promoting out-of-control "ballot harvesting" (and now vote by mail)? @RealDonaldTrump is right — because they want to be able to steal elections. #Coronavirus pic.twitter.com/Y1CtULTWRG

Even Democrat operatives, when they think they’re talking confidentially, will admit they engage in every form of voter fraud imaginable:
