“Voting Rights” is a Smokescreen, Election Integrity is at Risk, Kamala Harris is a Joke
Vice President Kamala Harris was tasked over the summer with spearheading voting rights, and has encouraged the passage of the “For the People Act” and the “John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.” These are likely going nowhere since the Biden Administration has run into a brick wall on a number bad legislation attempts. But if they are passed, it constitutes grave damage to our democracy, in my opinion.
Never mind that Kamala Harris is a mess who has failed to inspire anything, and who is also spearheading the Biden Administration’s work on the border, having never actually been there. VP Harris believes that if we don’t pass these, we will not be a “role model” for the rest of the world.
And I’m not going to express an opinion on the 2020 election in this article, let’s just say I’m mad as hell and leave it at that.
The “For the People Act” (not yet law) does a great number of unwise things.
Same-day voter registration
Changes to registration at the polls
Automatic Voter Registration
Expansion of vote by mail
Online voter registration
Limiting the ability of States to purge voter rolls
These don’t seem too sinister at first, they are just methods to make it easier and more convenient for lazy people to vote. Then you realize how they provide gaping security holes, allowing cheating at will. Not just cheating by individuals, mind you, it allows large-scale cheating by the (politically controlled) voting authorities themselves, in large areas. Can you imagine having about 300,000 votes for one candidate dropped at three in the morning that changes the results of an election?? This is how it happens.
Note that this Act does NOT require ID at voting places. Anyplace where ID is not required is a clear avenue for fraud. And this actually tends toward the opposite.
This Act also introduces public financing for campaigns, matching small donations at a 6:1 ratio. Yes, let’s propel the crazies with no popular support into the limelight, on the taxpayers’ dime. And it requires that PACs disclose their sources of funds. Maybe this is not a bad idea, but it attacks mechanisms on the Republican side and leaves the Democrats alone.
It requires that President and VP candidates disclose 10 years of tax returns, a clear shot at President Trump.
How about the “John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act”?
This law would give the Federal Government bigger sway over changes to local election rules, by requiring “pre-clearance” at the federal level. This might have been useful in the 2020 election, where laws were changed in the final election hours to help Biden.
But unfortunately, it makes specific references and requirement in areas where to racial minorities are prevalent. This means to me that the Democrats have specific plans to rig elections in those areas.
Purging voter rolls in areas that are predominantly black would require federal pre-clearance. The Act has provisions to increase early and absentee voting in predominantly black areas. And yes, it can be used to restrict the requirement for voter ID in predominantly black areas.
But not in other areas. See the racism here? See the liberal opportunism here that uses racist methods to further its own goals?
I’ve heard it said many times that minorities are less able to get government ID and therefore requiring an id or voting is racist and restrictive. And yet, if you go into the poorest parts of America, you find that everyone has a driver’s license, not to mention a cell phone, a bank account and much more that require ID. What country do they think we are living in? Can they point to a group of people who have this problem that are not more than a token handful?
These Acts are designed to further the insecurity of the election system, a condition Democrats believe to be to their advantage.
Since the 2020 election disaster, States have been acting on their own with about a hundred new state laws passed. You can see some maps in this particularly biased report that Republican states have made voting more strict, and Democrat states are loosening restrictions to make fraud much easier.
And just so you know, the Democratic National Committee is committing $25 million to “protect voting access” for 2022. And you may recall that Facebook’s Mark Zuckerburg, a diehard liberal, donated $350 million to 2,500 jurisdictions to assist with elections. These kinds of influence are OK, under the proposed laws.
The question is whether we want to leave in the loopholes that allow cheating and fraud or do we want our most precious right protected? Let me know what you think below.
