“The bedrock of the American republic is that elections must be free, fair, accurate, and trusted. I found after 2020 the way that you weren’t allowed to talk about (the election) completely suspicious.” Mollie Hemingway, Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections, (2021).
In order to secure voter integrity, Georgia passed a law after the irregularities of the 2020 election; a law that has been viciously attacked by the left. However, Tim Head, executive director of the Atlanta based Faith and Freedom Coalition, argued that in reality, the law made it easier to vote. Despite the lies of the media, Hollywood, the woke corporations, and the liberal politicians, including President Biden (who called the law Jim Crow 2.0), the law is a good step toward restoring voter integrity.
“The crux of the issue really comes down to: Do Americans and voters have confidence that we have a voice, a meaningful voice, in our government? We need to have confidence that all voices are heard, or otherwise, we will start moving closely towards a third world country.”
Biden made an official visit to Georgia and tried to peddle the left’s own voter overhaul bill – the Free to Vote Act – which will federalize all elections and remove crucial vote security measures if it ever becomes law. This bill is being pushed even though Article 1, Section 4, of the Constitution specifically states that “the times, places and manner of holding elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each state by the Legislature thereof.”
Hans von Spakavsky and John Fund of the Heritage Foundation’s, in an interview with Jerry Newcombe, stated that the existing laws which have been in place for more than eight decades clearly do not suppress voters – they don’t keep people out of the polls – and they certainly don’t keep minority voters out of the polls.
Ken Blackwell, Senior Fellow with the Family Research Council also noted that “if it was difficult to get a voter ID, you could say it was a restraint to participation. Well, it’s not difficult and you just think whether it’s taking out a library book, getting on an airplane, buying certain adult beverages, you have to show an ID.”
Some critics believe that the porous border, where hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are pouring into America, is a strategy by the left to sustain political power by getting these people to vote Democrat. If to prove the point, New York City recently approved letting 800,000 illegal aliens vote in local New York elections, at least for now. Critics note that this is why the Biden administration has not lifted a finger to close our southern border.
Going forward, we must make sure that elections are fair and just, that it is easy to vote but difficult, if not impossible, to cheat. And the place to do that is in the state legislatures, according to the Constitution Joe Biden swore to uphold.
