Free and Fair Elections? Oh Puhleeze!

I’m going to pick up where I left off in 2022, talking about elections. It pains me to say the United States of America’s electoral process has become a worldwide joke. I’d compare it to what is going on to third world, banana republic nations, but sadly most of them have better elections than we do. 

Why is a Second Amendment advocate so concerned about elections? It is because the people we elect, our representatives to local, county, state and federal positions, are the ones responsible for upholding our Constitution and any additional laws. When I hear politicians say “I support the Second Amendment, but…” that means they don’t understand the Constitution and Bill of Rights, or they just don’t care. Either way, I don’t want them representing me. 

So, what were some of the shenanigans we saw during the 2022 midterm elections? 

Lifelong democrats running as republicans.
Democrats actively supporting and financing low tier republican candidates as the ‘only person who can beat’ an incumbent democrat, knowing they have zero chance of doing so. 
Setting up phony news organizations to publish campaign propaganda. 

Ballot printer failures, misconfigurations and voting machine errors in primarily republican districts, all of which worked flawlessly up until changes made on election day.
Uncounted ballots mixed with counted ballots. 
Voters disenfranchised in primarily republican districts.
Stacks of ballots being dropped off, fanned out for photographs, before being deposited into ballot boxes.

Legally required chain of custody paperwork not completed.
Ballots accepted and counted after cutoff times.
Ballots purposely sent to incorrect addresses.
Ballots purposely sent to illegal voters.
Completed ballots unaccounted for. 
Completed ballots found in ditches. 
Unexplained wild jumps of votes for only one candidate. 
Counting taking days, weeks and even MONTHS.

Where does the establishment republican party stand on this? Pretty much nowhere. Since most of the election issues occurred in places where republican candidates supported by a certain former President were running, the GOP has been shockingly silent. So focused on purging anyone associated with the former President, they were willing to give up control of Congress to do it. 

What has the GOP been up to instead? Well, there’s the supposedly critical to the country work of who will be on what committee, who will occupy what office space, what pointless political hearings need to be initiated as well as what bold, patriotic go-nowhere-because-they-know-they-can’t-get-past-the-senate bills can be passed in the house. And let’s not forget the backroom negotiations leading to 15 votes to install a Speaker of the House. Pathetic. 

Funny, you and I had to endure the confusing and often disenfranchising punishment of ranked choice voting, but the Speaker of the House election didn’t. We also must trust the absolute integrity of absentee voting and ballot harvesting when our elected officials don’t. And when the big companies who throw their support behind mail in ballots for elections are faced with union votes, they insist on in-person voting because of the propensity of mail in voting fraud. Yet, we’re told this is essential, and anything less is a threat to democracy. 

Some on the right have suggested that if one side cheats, the other side should cheat even harder. Naturally, that isn’t the answer and anyone who is cheating doesn’t deserve to win. Ensuring a level electoral playing field where the will of the people is respected is. 

Election integrity matters for every seat on every board, from the local school board to the President of the United States. Without it, only the interests behind those running the elections are represented. Every community should insist on 100% compliance with the law and full open and accountable auditing. 

Of course, if this isn’t for you or you’re just happy with all the shenanigans, so be it. But keep in mind the changing winds. There may come a day when you too may disagree with the way elections are run and the lack of accountability, and there will be nothing you can do about it. 

Is that the free and fair elections you want?

Election Theater Act 3, The Elections

As expected, the 2020 General Elections have devolved into political chaos, accusations of widespread voter fraud, riots and armies of lawyers descending into battleground states, and it’s just getting started. While counts are still in progress, winners and losers have been declared and lawsuits are now in play. As expected, this election is heading to the courts. Our country’s election system that in 2016 was decried as being hacked and influenced by the Russians is now acclaimed as being the most secure ever, despite the abundant evidence of widespread ‘irregularities’. Whomever is eventually certified as the winner, the one clear loser in this election is the American people. The will of the people has been replaced by the whim of the political party. It is truly election theater and we only have the illusion of being a participant in it. 

The allegations are numerous: 

– Over 100,000 ballots for one candidate, and none for the other, showing up in the middle of the night. 
– A tabulating software ‘glitch’ switching thousands of votes from one party to the other.
– Ballots being marked as received on time, after the polls have closed. 
– Ballots found in the trash, dumpsters and trunks of cars. 
– Ballots being completed in the counting centers.
– Observers not given access to the counting centers and being evicted. 
– Counting centers blocking their windows to observers. 
– Votes from the dead, some dead for decades, being counted as valid. 
– Votes cast exceeding the number of registered voters in given areas. 

There is more, much much more, but that doesn’t seem to matter. Are any of allegations true? It depends on who you ask. We’re told that our elections with the mass of COVID-19 inspired, non-requested vote-by-mail ballots is the securest ever. It’s now in the hands of the lawyers and courts to sort out. 

It’s also interesting to note the Electoral College, previously called an obsolete relic of the past following the elections in 2016, is now hailed as the ‘law of the land’ who’s result must be respected. Even the losing 2016 Presidential candidate who has called for the abolition of the Electoral College is now proud to join her ex-President husband as a New York State Elector. It’s amazing how a little time and circumstance changes perspectives. 

If only there were a way to ensure only valid voters could vote only once in an election. Certainly, demanding voter ID and a validation system at the polling place would do that, but then, free photo ID easily available to every U.S. citizen in every part of the country would be discriminatory to someone, like ineligible voters. 

If nothing else the 2020 elections will go down as the most questionable and least trusted in our nation’s history. And we the people of the United States are the ones who have just lost.
