ELECTION

- James Madison -

“Whatever may be the judgment pronounced on the competency of the architects of the Constitution, or whatever may be the destiny of the edifice prepared by them, I feel it a duty to express my profound and solemn conviction … that there never was an assembly of men, charged with a great and arduous trust, who were more pure in their motives, or more exclusively or anxiously devoted to the object committed to them.”

ELECTION SECURITY

One citizen, one vote for the candidates of our choice. 
We wholeheartedly agree with the Freedom Alliance stance on elections.  We believe the right to vote, a right that is of inestimable importance for the preservation of liberty and our Republic, must be secured to all constitutionally qualified citizens regardless of race, gender, religion, or political affiliation. We need common sense changes to ensure one citizen, one vote.

Our election policies are not sound.
State election commissions are less than transparent.  We need a  common-sense approach to explore ways to ensure trust in our elections.  Without free choice at the ballot box, We the People fail to be free.

There were clearly irregularities in the last election. 
However, rather than “preparing to fight the last war”, we should be focused on ensuring a more secure and constitutionally mandated approach.  State Legislatures and Assemblies are solely responsible for determining State election requirements and procedures.  During the pandemic we saw Secretaries and State and State Supreme Courts usurp the power of the State legislatures and Assemblies.  They by-passed the legislatures and enforced new election “rules” without their approval.

When irregularities were found and challenges filed they either largely ignored them (Secretary of State) or denied them (State Supreme Court).  There were no end-to-end audits of election systems and voters were left to wonder why.

We must immediately design a more secure process
We should consider a combination of:

  • Voter ID
  • Proof of Citizenship
  • Eliminating Universal Mail-In Ballots
  • Eliminating Ballot Havesting
  • Improving Signature Verification
BALLOT HARVESTING

Ballot harvesting occurs when an intermediary interferes in the chain of custody of a ballot which is antithetical to election security.  

There is a fundamental difference between mail-in ballots for every registered voter and absentee voting and it is quite clear. Absentee voting has been a proud United States tradition and form of voting since 1864.  Mail-in ballots and ballot harvesting are a relatively new phenomenon and have created distrust in our voting system, which threatens the very idea of fair and honest elections.

In 2021 the Nevada Democrat-controlled legislature passed, and governor Sisolak signed Assembly Bill 4. This historically destructive measure not only guarantees mail-in ballots to every registered Nevada voter, but there is also no requirement for a postmark; it allows any voter 65 years or older can request assistance to vote, sign the ballot, and have that person mail it for them, which is an opening for obvious fraud.  

The new law stipulates those votes can be cast and will be counted, up-to-three days after Election Day. In addition, without a proper postmark, Nevada election officials could be counting ballots for weeks beyond Election Day, which again, is unconstitutional.  

Fair-honest-minded people will recognize that this process is patently unfair, undemocratic, and destructive to our electoral system.
