VALUING THE VOTE - TEACH CHILDREN THE ROPES

We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will. - Chuck Palahniuk
Yesterday and early this morning I published macro civil commentaries - 'True the Vote' and 'Untied States of America' - as perspective on the state of our election of our next president.
This morning's plan after writing was to enjoy coffee, have a bite, and paint.
But after perusing sundry election related news on the Internet and TV, a short word.
The scope of voting fraud horrifying.
It cannot be tolerated.
Because every substantive sign conflicts with the vote there's no logical way to square with the present status. No way.
Fraud by individual voter, vote counter, manager and supervisor thereof, et al., is an attack on our Constitution, on our Republic; on each of us.
It's not petty crime.
To the contrary, it trumps felony.
How do we 'True the Vote' and unite our 'Untied States of America'?
Teach children the ropes.
That is, those caught and proved guilty of voting and election fraud hang in the public square.
Teach the children.
And before any and every election republish those images to remind the citizenry of the consequences for what is an attack on our Republic; against neighbor.
Ruthlessness and civility do not conflict; perfectly overlap on a Venn diagram.
The honor system works when stakes (hang 'em) high.
That's a sure way to create (and preserve) something that will not die; for freedom to live forever.
Honorable men have nothing to fear; less humoring the dishonorable.
Game face, not facetious smirk, on.
Now to paint; conscience clear.
