The IRS does assume people do cheat. The IRS taxpayers keep all records for years. The government never assumes the public is honest. This is why the government checks gasoline pumps meter accuracy, the catch of commercial fishermen, truck weights, etc. The very same tell us to, the public to trust election results, seriously!
How to remove all doubt over election results. Offer a reward to be paid by the local government overseeing any election with no tax increase allowed to recoup loss until the next election to anyone identifying voter or counting fraud of:
- $1 million in local elections.
- $3 million in a state election.
- $10 million in federal elections.
To the naysayers, the public has been assured election results are not tainted by either the voter or counting fraud. The above crosscheck should then be welcomed.
