No proof, just feeling
If you went to your doctor and, after glancing at you for a moment, she said, “I’ve got a feeling you have brain cancer. I’m going to schedule a biopsy ASAP,” how would you respond?
“Sure, whatever you say, Doc. Drill away!” Yes?
Or, just maybe, you’d prefer a little more convincing?
“Did you see something wrong with my eyes?”
“Not that I can tell.”
“Are my hands trembling?” “They seem to be working normally.”
“So is my speech slurred?” “Nope.”
“So why do you need to take a piece of my brain?”
This is the same position President Trump has put states like Arkansas in with his demand for voter information. He has a feeling that he actually won the popular vote in 2016. He has a feeling that millions of people voted illegally in that election. But he has zero proof to back these feelings up. And until Trump can provide the American public with some tangible signs of voter fraud, we should refuse to let him “drill” into our personally identifying voting behavior.
This is big government at its worst.
