Republicans had the platform, Republicans had the momentum, but Joe Biden's falsely spewed “our democracy is at stake” nonsense drew Democrat voters to the polls in higher numbers than it did Republican voters. And this was no matter that their party did not address the true issues concerning voters, as in record high inflation, rising gas prices, the increase in crime, and the invasion at our southern border...to name but a few. Resonating with Republicans alone, I do not want to hear any Democrat whining about prices at the pump and/or at the grocery store for “Let them eat cake”...and choke on it I might add.
Yet our Republican leaders stood by not uttering even a peep when we lost the Senate seat in Arizona after Blake Masters suddenly saw his original lead not so slowly slipping away after his opponent, Mark Kelly, in “extended counting” pulled ahead. And the same goes for Arizona's governors race where Katie Hobbs, Arizona's current Secretary of State whose job description includes being Arizona's chief elections officer/overseer...pulled ahead of Republican Kari Lake, again only when counting days were extended. Nice huh...unethical to say the least as Hobbs refused to recuse herself...conflict of interest and all...and yet Republican voices, for the most part, were nowhere then and are nowhere now to be found.
So now it seems the liberal media is allowed to officially call an election even before all votes are counted, it's no wonder that half this country has zero confidence in our election process, and rightly so. And they did this no matter that the December 6th Georgia runoff election between Republican Herschel Walker and Democrat incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock still has to take place. But in the scope of things that race really doesn't matter for all a Walker win would do is allow for a 50-50 Senate split with lamebrain Kamala Harris again being the deciding vote.
A girl can wish now can't she...sigh...especially with it now being obvious that we Republicans need new leaders, new ideas, and new modes of messaging to take place.
First let's discuss who can and cannot vote. According to the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, voting is a right afforded to “citizens of the United States,” note the word “citizens” with the Fifteenth Amendment specifically stating, “the right of citizens of the United States to vote.” Again notice the all-important word “citizens” for nowhere in the Constitution does it say that non-citizens...as in illegals or even permanent residents...can vote. In fact there are four amendments to the Constitution that while expanding the right vote, as in the 15th, 19th, 24th, and 26th Amendments, they all all still include the word “citizen.” And yet we know illegals are indeed voting, most especially in blue states...an important constitutional breech Republican leaders have yet to address or even seem to want to address.
And while the Constitution gives the states under Article I, Section 4, Clause 1, the right to chose the “Times, Places, and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof...” it says not a word about extending the time frame by which votes are cast, harvested and/or counted. In fact, in regards to federal elections...which includes the federal midterms...the Constitution states there is to be a designated “Election Day” ...as in "the Tuesday next after the first Monday in November"...thus setting a real deadline for voting. Simply, there is no mention in the Constitution to an “Election Week” or an “Election Month,” as the U.S. Constitution clearly states that votes are to be cast within a single day, and that said votes are to be counted by the end of a given deadline period with no mention of extensions for suddenly turning up late ballots. And while mail-in ballots per se are not addressed, the constitutional time frame regarding casting one's vote on a single day should apply here as well for no form of voting is more rife with tampering and fraud than is mail-in ballots.
Simply, if you cannot give up one day to do your civic duty maybe you shouldn't be voting at all. And the whining that “I'll miss work” or whatever no longer holds true as most businesses do give time off to vote. And maybe here alone is one place where a constitutional amendment is needed stating that on the day designated as “Election Day” that all polls must remain open until everyone in line is given their chance to vote. This sure would cut down on the fraud committed courtesy of both mail-in and early votes cast.
Simple solutions to what has now allowed our beloved America to become but a laughing stock world over, for the “Home of the Free, and the Land of the Brave,” now sees the sanctity of the vote...the very thing our brave men and women in uniform gave their lives to protect...being but fodder for late night comedians and ubber leftist politicians now joyously heralding the fall of our American “republic”...may she sadly “Rest in Peace.” Case closed.
