So, there’s no doubt that 2020 is shaping up to be an interesting election year.
The Democrats are living up to the ol’ Rahm Emanuel classic: NEVER LET. A GOOD CRISIS GO TO WASTE.
The Democrats are currently exploiting the coronavirus to push through a number of changes to election law, including voting by mail.
Pelosi promoted the idea of voting by mail on CBS, and in a tweet. (We can guess which one of those people actually saw… )
And then Marc Elias, a former advisor to Hillary Clinton, expanded on her whole proposal in the Atlantic, suggesting Democrat ballot harvesting, rules that allow people to “vote-anywhere,” and curbside voting — whatever that means.
The problem? The most common kind of voter fraud is through mail in ballots and all of these “vote-anywhere” laws are an invitation for voter fraud now that they’ve virtually BANNED VOTER ID.
This kind of madness could allow votes for purchase and could definitely mean voter intimidation – with no real secret ballot. No boyfriends pretending to be social justice warriors for their feminists girlfriends if their mail in ballot is laying on the table with “Trump” checked for president. That’s bound to cause issues.
Not to mention, with no ID people could DEFINITELY vote on behalf of another person (with or without permission). Send two ballots to my house? Guess what I’m doing? I’m making sure my fiancé doesn’t vote for that city council member that I hate, that’s for sure.
I’m proud to see our amazing GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel is fighting back. In an op-ed for Fox News she said that “the Republican Party will always defend free and fair elections. That is why we will continue to fight and win against attempts by Democrats to use the pandemic as an excuse to circumvent election integrity” McDaniel continued, “will not throw out our most elementary promises of democracy, because agenda-driven Democrats do not want to let a pandemic go to waste.”
YA HEAR THAT DEMS? We’re not stupid. We’re not going to forfeit EVERY right because we’re scared.
Good to know some things are still worth fighting for.
