Voters must believe that elections are conducted fairly, with accurately tabulated results, in order to trust and have confidence in government, institutions, and representatives. Election integrity is a fundamental principle of the American system. We are rightly proud of our Republic, for many people, the world over, do not have the right to elect government officials. Citizens of the American States not only have a God-given right to fair elections, but also a right to petition the government for redress of grievances. If there are questions about the fairness or accuracy of an election, we have the right to ask questions and get honest answers.
In 2020, we conducted a federal election in which many believe the results were suspect to say the least. This election took place under unusual and difficult circumstances. The Corona virus sent many government officials into panic mode. The Democratic Party saw an opportunity to enact sweeping changes, such as instituting mass mail-in balloting and absentee voting. Republicans were concerned about the opportunity this introduced for widespread fraud but did little or nothing to prevent it.
Countries that have experimented with mass absentee voting have discovered that the potential for fraud is enormous. Even if mail-in voting takes place, there must be safeguards to ensure that each ballot came from a voter that was a willing and eligible participant. Democrats were not concerned with election accuracy– only results. They mailed-out millions of unsolicited ballots and did not enforce existing signature and verification requirements designed to guarantee that each vote is genuine. Many of their methods were illegal and unconstitutional, not to mention the fraud that resulted along the way.
The United States Constitution, under Article II, Section 1, Clause 2, states: “Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress.” Put simply, our Constitution dictates that only State legislatures have the right to determine the method by which electors are allocated to the Electoral College. It is the legislature’s duty, and theirs alone, to enact election law. Democrats in key battleground States used sympathetic courts and operatives to make “emergency” changes to voting rules and methods, using the pandemic as an excuse. This completely circumvented State legislatures and violated a key tenant of how our democratic system is meant to operate.
On January 6th, 2021, approximately 100,000 protestors gathered at the U.S. Capitol to make their displeasure known and their voices heard. They were there to defend the Republic and the democratic system. The media called these patriots “insurrectionists.” In reality, it was the Democratic Party who conducted an insurrection. The Democrats arranged a successful takeover of the federal government, and anyone who questioned their methods and the fairness of the election was accused of insurrection. A Capitol protestor named Ashli Babbitt, a U.S. Air Force Veteran, paid for her patriotism with her life. Despite media lies, she was the only person murdered.
Representative Bennie Thompson of Mississippi’s Second Congressional District is the chairman of the “January 6th Committee” which is trying to intimidate American patriots by persecuting hundreds of protestors that are being held as political prisoners since approximately January 6, 2021. Thompson does not believe in the U.S. Constitution. He constantly violates his oath of office to support and defend it, and he does not support the God-given right to petition government for a redress of grievances. Among other evil ideas, he believes in using his chairman position to give his party a stranglehold on American politics. Mississippi voters should bear these facts in mind as the election of November of 2022 draws near.
