Joe Manchin (D-WVa) appears to be the lone guy (well, sometimes with Arizona’s Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) who is fighting for his constituents rather than his party. At least that’s the short end of the story on the surface. Manchin came out this past weekend and said that he was going to be voting against S-1, the sweeping Voting Rights Act that basically would create havoc for anyone not a Democrat trying to get elected.
S-1, better known as the “For The People Act”, is the Democrats’ attempt to insure that voting by mail (which has lead to massive voter fraud in the past) along with automatically registering everyone of age to vote (again, leading to massive voter fraud), and “increasing access to the ballot box” for everyone (see above two topics), is heading to a vote in the Senate. Now, normally, if people were voting on party lines, this would pass 50-50 with Kamala Harris voting in favor as the tie breaker. But this isn’t normal times, and apparently, Joe Manchin is thinking with his head, not with his wallet.
The problem with S-1 is that, while it allows for early voting, and insures that those that Democrats claim are being disenfranchised with their vote can get to the polls, it does add several layers of concern besides those outlined above. The main reason for this bill is simple. It’s to make sure that Democrats are the only ones elected to Congress and the White House for the foreseeable future. And it does so, because of the fact it allows for voter fraud.
Now, I’ve said many, many times on this blog and elsewhere that in 2020 there was indeed voter fraud. Yes, I do believe that. I don’t believe there was enough voter fraud to overturn the election. Joe Biden won the election. There was never any proof given in any courtroom in this country that signified otherwise. I’ve read the transcripts. The arguments that people like Rudy Giuliani gave in public and the arguments that he gave in the courtroom where he could be slapped with a perjury charge were incredibly different. Why? If Giuliani had what he claimed to the media that he had, why didn’t he produce it in a court of law?
This act, however, isn’t the answer. If you’re looking at fair and unbiased elections, and I really do believe that MOST Americans are in agreement with that, you don’t want S-1 to pass. It doesn’t insure fair and unbiased elections. It insures biased, rigged elections at almost every turn. There is a very simple solution.
You make people vote in person. You make election day the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November and leave it at that. You do not allow absentee voting unless there is a medical reason why a person of voting age, and registered to vote cannot get to the polls. And you make Election Day a federal holiday. Nobody works. You make it illegal to campaign or stand within 100 yards of anybody standing in line to vote, or harass anybody in line to vote. When you vote, you receive a purple ink spot on your thumb that wears off after 2 weeks. Nothing else can get it off. And once the voting is over, the machines, with a paper trail, are confiscated and taken to a secure place guarded by armed guards. There they are counted and reported immediately, and the tallies sent to a central location.
After those tallies are sent to a central location, the results are final and there is no allowing for any extra ballots to be counted. This insures that no one “finds” a bunch of absentee ballots hidden in a closet somewhere as has happened several times. Or that someone in the middle of the night drives up and delivers boxes of absentee ballots as was alleged that happened in Wayne County, Michigan in November.
Anyone caught tampering with voting is locked away for the rest of their lives with no chance for parole. If you make the punishment severe enough, you will see voter fraud disappear. It’s that simple.
S-1 is a bad idea. It’s not American. It’s foisted by people who want to control you in ever avenue of your life while they are held above the law. And we can all thank Joe Manchin for deciding it’s not what the United States Senate needs to do.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
