Generally, most people consider "voter fraud" and "election rigging" to be interchangeable terms.
I love how you connect the election fraud to Republicans when all of the cases I know of involve Democrats. I know that I am more likely to remember Democratic election fraud because they are the Party which insists that it is an insignificant problem. However, I also know that there have been more cases of election fraud involving Democrats than Republicans.
ID is not necessarily required. e.g. in Australia, you turn up to the polling station (usually a local school or whatever), go to the desk and tell them your name.
Or someone else's, how would they know?
Of course, if they would bother to vote in the primaries, they would have more choices. In addition, because so few people actually vote in the primaries, they could easily tip the vote at that stage to someone different.
You can argue that those who are choosing to spend this money are the ones benefiting from it, but if you make that argument do not try to argue that the purpose is education.
The theory behind public education is that everyone benefits from a well educated population, therefore everyone should pay. The problem with that theory is that we then turn around and say that we should let experts decide how to spend the money. The "experts" can gain a lot more value for themselves from that money by allocating it in ways which do not improve educational results. So they do so.
Those of us who oppose the death penalty see no reason to "fix" the system, and instead prefer to keep it as dysfunctional as possible until there is enough popular will to abolish it.
Revealing a typical left wing tactic. When popular opinion opposes what you want, rather than argue the case and convince people to do things the way you would prefer introduce "improvements" to the current system which actually make it worse, then use the results of these "improvements" to argue that the system is hopelessly flawed and must be replaced.
