America at the Crossroads: Truth Comes Into the Light

 

December 8th, 2020.   Key American leaders were fighting critical legal and legislative battles on this day for truth and the rule of law to prevail in writing the history of the U.S. national election of November 3rd.  History may show these as the days when the incumbent President Trump attempted to push back against the fraud and the political challenge by the opposing party.

The supposed fiction of the massive fraud that occured during the November 2020 election in America was “falling apart at the seams” to use an old analogy, and truth began finding its way into the light.  There were countless stories, testimonials and other evidence of  fraudulent actions that occured all across America, before- during- and after the November 3rd election. Yet it still it did not matter in the final analysis.  Some say that because of the results, that the truth did not prevail, and the real truth remains hidden in darkness.  It may appear that way, but people are smarter than we often realize, and they will find answers that hold truth.

The evidence was almost a fantastic story, practically too incredible to describe, and yet it was all out there, plainly available to see and understand – if one would choose to look for it.  All across the mainstream media there were stories upon stories of the fraud, coupled with the increasing refusal to show the debate by the mainstream media.  Most of the American populace were only hearing a little at a time about any of these events, and they did not hear about the alleged fraud on the major cable or nightly news networks, or in the daily news reports in mainstream internet media companies.

We live in America… this is a land where success historically comes to those taking personal action and personal responsibility.  We should not sit idly by like children being spoon-fed our daily dose of propaganda or half-truths from the media.  Too many corporate entities have an “angle” or a “spin” to the story they choose to tell.  We must however embrace the personal responsibility we have as citizens in holding our elected officials, and our local and national government accountable to the people.  That is what America is about… “We the People…”  and we must move forward with the premise that where corruption and fraud exists, only truth, light and justice shall prevail.

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”   – Preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America[1]https://constitutioncenter.org/interactive-constitution/full-text

Every American should have a personal awareness for the major political events that happen in our nation.  Unfortunately that is rarely the case, and in recent years most Americans are simply not involved or aware enough to understand beyond what the major news media portrays.   Yet today, more than ever in recent history, we must encourage Americans to look beyond the daily news cycle and attempt to truly understand the events that shape our lives.

There was a clear understanding that the efforts to win the 2020 election were an enormous uphill battle for the President’s team of attorneys, and the state legislators trying to bring truth and clarity to what transpired. It was believed that there was still enough time for the President to contest and to reverse any state election results that had been certified while legal challenges were pending.  Yet that was not to be in the end.

Nonetheless, Americans began to see the “uncovering” of the fraud that had taken place in many states and cities across the nation.  It seemed very slow in terms of the daily news cycle, but in the context of the larger election cycle, the weeks after the election were a very short timeframe to understand what had happened.

“For if Men are to be precluded from offering their Sentiments on a matter, which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences, that can invite the consideration of Mankind, reason is of no use to us; the freedom of Speech may be taken away, and, dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep, to the Slaughter.”  – General George Washington, 1783

 

 

Although the President steeled himself and his loyalists with the necessary resolve to uphold the U.S. Constitution, to fight back against the alleged fraud, and to do everything possible to uncover and reveal the truth in courts of law and as a public record in American history… they did not prevail- no matter what attempt was made.

From the smallest election voting precinct in every city, and every little town, church, school and county building all across the wide expanse of America- our citizens must know and believe that their vote is a right guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, and that it matters… that their vote will be counted… and that voting is indeed a sacred trust between government and the people.

The words above involve much to consider… are they mere words, and simple theories and speculation?   It certainly presents itself as an interesting story for those who enjoy conspiracy fiction.  Yet perhaps this was not conspiracy fiction at all- and the fraud did indeed occur on scale never before witnessed in America.  Whether the remedy to that fraud will unfold and America will find a way to secure election integrity in the future is a question that will remain unaswered for now.  

__________________~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~__________________

We must continue to have faith and believe that truth and justice will prevail here in America.  It is our last, best hope for keeping faith with our fellow Americans, and for believing in the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  We must be able to have confidence and faith in a fair and honest election system.  Our faith in America is written in the blood of our ancestors and forefathers.  It is written in the lives of our veterans, families and friends, and all those who have given something to their country and their communities.

There are many words in American history that could be shared to help understand the current challenges. Few however could frame the challenges we face as well as the words below, and especially the last paragraph, spoken over the remains of thousands of soldiers slain on the battlefield of Gettysburg over 157 years ago. 

They are appropriate to America today in the sense that we must commit ourselves to the rule of law, and to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America on behalf of our children, and our children’s children long into our future.  We must in increase our dedication and devotion to each other- to uphold the rights of our fellow citizens, and to reach with our hearts to the best among us a citizens of this great nation.

“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”
“Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.”
“But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.”
“It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
President Abraham Lincoln
November 19, 1863

The Tide is Turning for America’s 2020 Election

 

The title should really be, “The Tide Has Turned for America’s 2020 Election.”

It was interesting to watch and consider the challenge for the 2020 election.  Many believed the hearings and court cases would gain a “footing” or traction in the media.  Yet they did not, and many of the politicians quickly began to embrace the incoming Democrat administration as they watched the results.   Even though the President’s attorneys, and the state legislative hearings attempted to reveal the evidence of fraud, many were speaking out louder and complaining that it was not a real story.   Overall, the court actions were dismissed without any significant fraud being presented, and none of the state legislatures acted definitively upon the fraud presented to them.

The 2020 election challenge was perhaps one of the biggest political events in generations.  It ended however, after the January 7th Electoral Vote certification when the Democrat party won the Presidency.

America’s 2020 Election Finale: Truth and Consequences

 

In 1788 in The Federalist Papers No. 61[1]https://founders.archives.gov/documents/Hamilton/01-04-02-0211, Alexander Hamilton discussed the merits of a uniform date for holding elections and cited the risks of an “improper spirit” in affecting the elections of neighboring states. Even more prophetic he considered just how that “improper spirit” might manifest itself in subsequent generations of people and elections:

“I allude to the circumstance of uniformity in the time of elections for the Federal House of Representatives. It is more than possible, that this uniformity may be found by experience to be of great importance to the public welfare; both as a security against the perpetuation of the same spirit in the body; and as a cure for the diseases of faction. If each State may choose its own time of election, it is possible there may be at least as many different periods as there are months in the year.

The times of election in the several States as they are now established for local purposes, vary between extremes as wide as March and November. The consequence of this diversity would be, that there could never happen a total dissolution or renovation of the body at one time. If an improper spirit of any kind should happen to prevail in it, that spirit would be apt to infuse itself into the new members as they come forward in succession. The mass would be likely to remain nearly the same; assimilating constantly to itself its gradual accretions. There is a contagion in example which few men have sufficient force of mind to resist.” 

Some believe Alexander Hamilton’s words, written 232 years ago, are relevant to the United States in present times, and the future of election integrity.  What is the future of America?

In many ways, Americans must accept the challenge to deter the improper spirit of those who would compromise the integrity of our elections in the future.   No matter what happens, if there is corruption or fraud, the truth will eventually be viewed in plain sight for those who choose to see.  Truth brings light to many, many things…  It’s not difficult to find the truth, but we must be willing to do so.

We will all have a choice for America’s future.  Where will you stand?   We will stand with the heritage of this free republic, and the U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.  We will stand with the lives of our ancestors and all those who have walked and fought for truth and liberty throughout this great land of the United States of America.  We will stand with our fellow citizens, affirming our right to vote, and to have our legal vote counted.  We will stand for strengthening our nation’s elections at every level of governance.

We will stand with America.   We ask you to stand for America too.

 

Voting is a Sacred Trust in America

“We regard it as equally unquestionable that the right to have one’s vote counted is as open to protection by Congress as the right to put a ballot in a box.”

U.S. Supreme Court, Justice Holmes [1] United States v. Mosley, 238 U.S. 383 (1915)

During the November, 2020 election, the people of America found themselves in a political crisis of historic proportions.  The election outcome was challenged for many weeks, and the outcome divided the nation in ways not seen in modern times.   Some say that America has changed moving forward, and our elections will be different. In some states, many people no longer believe we have fairness or accountability in our local, state and national elections.  Voting in America is different now, and whether or not our fellow citizens will ever trust in our elections in the future is questionable without some type of change in the accounting process to ensure legal voting.

Since the 2020 election there was much abject frustration among Americans from all walks of life.  The reason was simple:  We Americans have very strong feelings about honesty and a fair opportunity in life.  In the past we have generally tended to trust our elected officials, and those who volunteer to handle ballots and elections.

After the election day of November 3rd, 2020 however, many people felt that their trust had been shattered to pieces, and many Americans felt outrage and disbelief.  They watched as it appeared partisans ran unchecked with fraud, trampling over the very institutions that guard and establish our civil liberties through our right to vote.

Even the post-election recounts that took place showed few voter verification measures in place to detect fraud.  What is a recount if registration or ballot legitimacy is not reviewed and it just becomes a recounting of potential fraud?  The mail-in vote nationwide of 2020 was also a “free-for-all” in many states, with little ability to prevent fraud.

This promoted a disillusionment of the voters that would shake people to the core of their beliefs.  Faith in elected government was broken by the evidence that people have begun to see- and the stark unwillingness to have an honest and accurate accounting of legitimate votes.  Our confidence is also lost in public and private institutions as well, and any consideration for legitimate journalism has faded quickly with obviously partisan reports from the national media.  At times like these, people feel powerless to do anything, where to turn, who to talk to, and are not sure what to do next.  Many people have felt that way, especially over the reports of blatant fraud, and the incessant media narratives that continued since election day.

But the people are not powerless.  Have you not considered how important this is?!  That the power of your vote is arguably the most sacred right that you have in the United States of America- in fact in any nation on this earth.  The power of your vote is your single, absolute right to use your voice in a formal process for stating your intentions for the future of your nation and local community.  Your voice is your freedom in every way imaginable, from speaking within your neighborhood, schools and local communities, to the cities and states of this great nation.  Your voice matters!  Your voice is everything!   And we must not give up… we must not lose faith.  In the weeks, months and years ahead of us, we must work together to bring back integrity in our elections.

Voting as a Sacred Compact of Constitutionally Protected Rights

The right to cast your voteone vote, as a person, and a legal citizen of this nation within your state of residence, and then to have it counted correctly is a sacred compact between you and the United States of America. Your voice and your vote affirms every other right that you have as a legal citizen.

Our nation’s founding gave us the birthright as citizens to have the freedom of our voices to speak loudly before, during and after elections and thereby to thrust ourselves into the very fabric of governance.   

All of our rights and civil liberties areprotected by the constitution and made manifest by the voices and the lifeblood of our citizens past and present.

In the 1972 ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court in Dunn v. Blumstein [2] Dunn v. Blumstein, 405 U.S. 330 (1972) , Justice Marshall wrote that,

“In decision after decision, this Court has made clear that a citizen has a constitutionally protected right to participate in elections on an equal basis with other citizens in the jurisdiction.”

Consider for a moment just how fraud may affect the rights of citizens who cast a legal vote.  If fraud is present, then some citizens are no longer participating on an equal basis, and directly or indirectly, their rights have been violated by those who have committed fraud.  In fact, each U.S. State has an obligation under the14th Amendment and the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts to ensure equal protection under the law, and are prohibited from restricting the rights of voters.  Diminishing the legal votes of citizens in any way would appear to be a clear violation of those civil rights, and the 14th Amendment.

The U.S. Constitution secures the basis for all other rights and liberties as citizens, and long-held precedence and opinion by the highest courts of law continue to affirm the right to vote and for our votes to be counted and not diminished.

The U.S. Supreme Court time and again has upheld these voting rights in many rulings, including the words of Chief Justice Warren in Reynolds v. Sims [3]Reynolds v. Sims, 377 U.S. 533 (1964) :

“Undeniably, the Constitution of the United States protects the right of all qualified citizens to vote, in state as well as in federal, elections. A consistent line of decisions by this Court in cases involving attempts to deny or restrict the right of suffrage has made this indelibly clear. It has been repeatedly recognized that all qualified voters have a constitutionally protected right to vote, [4]Ex parte Yarbrough, 110 U. S. 651 and to have their votes counted. [5]United States v. Mosley, 238 U. S. 383 (1915). In Mosley, the Court stated that it is “as equally unquestionable that the right to have one’s vote counted is as open to protection . . . as the right to put a ballot in a box.” [6] United States v. Mosley, 238 U.S. 383      The right to vote can neither be denied outright, [7]Guinn v. United States, 238 U. S. 347 , Lane v. Wilson, 307 U. S. 268 nor destroyed by alteration of ballots, [8]United States v. Classic, 313 U. S. 299313 U. S. 315, nor diluted by ballot box stuffing. [9]Ex parte Siebold, 100 U. S. 371United States v. Saylor, 322 U. S. 385.
As the Court stated in Classic, [10]United States v. Classic, 313 U.S. 299 (1941)   “Obviously included within the right to choose, secured by the Constitution, is the right of qualified voters within a state to cast their ballots and have them counted. . . .”    And history has seen a continuing expansion of the scope of the right of suffrage in this country. The right to vote freely for the candidate of one’s choice is of the essence of a democratic society, and any restrictions on that right strike at the heart of representative government. And the right of suffrage can be denied by a debasement or dilution of the weight of a citizen’s vote just as effectively as by wholly prohibiting the free exercise of the franchise.

That right to vote freely is our compact with our country, as enumerated by our constitution.  Any fraud that has occured has restricted our fundamental rights and our vote, because fraud itself does “strike at the heart of representative government.”

How can America ever stand as a nation of free peoples if we allow the alleged deceit and fraud from a handful of cities to determine the outcome of our national elections?

No matter our origin, immigrant or native, born as citizen or naturalized… Americans built this nation over decades of blood, sweat and toil.  Many millions of these citizens voted to continue the present political form of government.  These millions could never consider giving up our American heritage to those who would cheat, lie and steal the soul of the nation from their fellow citizens all in the name of power and greed.   Certainly, at the least- the real and perceived integrity of the U.S. election system in various states has been ripped apart by this fraud, deceit and misbehavior.

Many believe that voter fraud, and deceit through political partisanship, is an attack on what America stands for, and it became personal to the people in ways never imagined in recent history.

Alexander Hamilton in 1784 discussed the imperative of our right to vote and the heritage we share with the framers of the Constitution:

“A share in the sovereignty of the state, which is exercised by the citizens at large, in voting at elections is one of the most important rights of the subject, and in a republic ought to stand foremost in the estimation of the law. It is that right, by which we exist a free people; and it certainly therefore will never be admitted, that less ceremony ought to be used in divesting any citizen of that right, than in depriving him of his property. Such a doctrine would ill suit the principles of the revolution, which taught the inhabitants of this country to risk their lives and fortunes in asserting their liberty; or in other words, their right to a share in the government. That portion of the sovereignty, to which each individual is entitled, can never be too highly prized. It is that for which we have fought and bled; and we should cautiously guard against any precedents, however they may be immediately directed against those we hate, which may in their consequences render our title to this great privilege, precarious.”[11]Alexander Hamilton, Second Letter from Phocion, New York, April, 1784

Our constitution as written protects our rights, and allows us a framework of civil liberties that are not found anywhere else in the world.  This framework acts as a foundation for those civil liberties, and every citizen thereby has a voice that we use in many ways, especially through voting.  They are precious and sacred liberties that provide for active participation in every way in the direction of our nation.   When people feel that someone is taking those liberties- that freedom- away from them, it becomes a threat to the ability to live free as Americans citizens.

“Liberty, the greatest of all earthly blessings – give us that precious jewel, and you may take every thing else!” 
Patrick Henry, Virginia Convention of 1788

How often in our nation’s history have there been such polarizing events that awaken the national consciousness in quite this manner?  After the 2020 election… it now just seems different.  More than politics alone, people were shocked by the appearance and likelihood of fraud and deceit and the media mania that persisted in promoting untruths, or at a minimum in covering up what occurred.

The events before and after the election awakened Americans in a new and perhaps profound way.   Instead of succumbing to the despair and resignation that comes from inaction and disappointment,  people began to understand that the individual voter has the power to join a collective tide of action with millions of other Americans in promoting change.   The heritage of the nation was at stake as millions of supporters of the incumbent President stood beside him, and declared their absolute right to a fair election.

America – and every U.S. State – deserves to know and to verify the legal votes of any election, and to discern fraud apart from the honest intent of real U.S. citizens.

Americans collectively spoke with incredible force of intention during 2020- for both political parties. However, there has not been a correct accounting of the alleged fraud, and most of the evidence was simply dismissed.  Does anyone agree that these millions of Americans should simply abandon their beliefs, stand aside and watch their country be changed in the years ahead?  No, certainly not.  But they must find a way to channel that energy to something constructive in the future… working for new legislation, or to improve the elections integrity in the state or local government.

In 2020, President Trump was not successful with his campaign to win re-election.  Or at least he was not successful in making sure that a fair election occurred, and he thereby lost the election.  Yet somehow this has changed America, and there will be a changed electorate in ways we have yet to imagine.

President Trump Butler PA Oct 21 2020

Right or wrong, there are millions of people who believe that fraud occurred in the 2020 election through the selfish acts of those who would violate every trust given to them.  That is why people were so upset and disillusioned.  Americans know the difference between being clever or cunning, and outright cheating and fraud.  Perhaps the cheating and fraud has been going on for longer than many believed possible… for many, many years in various localities, but never in such a widespread and coordinated manner as believed in 2020, and that is precisely what is so shocking and disturbing.

Americans believe strongly in the “level playing field”…  Think of the many famous stories out of sports and the prospect of how we handle cheating, gambling, drug use etc.   In baseball they even have “lifetime bans” for those who would cheat and/or try to prosper by taking advantage in the game.   Why do we have referees, umpires and judges in sports?   To make sure the game is fairly played, and if there is a foul or violation of the rules, the referee will intervene.  There is a remedy to the foul, whether as a replay, penalty or score adjustment.

Americans believe everyone should have a fair chance at success.  We believe in following rules and laws that support an honest accounting of results.   If we lose in a game of sports that was fairly played- so be it.  If we lose in a fair contest, we tip our hats and get back to work, planning for next time. But guess what?  Americans know the difference between honesty and cheating.

Americans believed they were being forced to give up and to cede an election to those who would violate state and federal law simply to gain advantage.  How can any elected official allow cheating and dishonest accounting on a scale so large as a national election across America?   Millions of people will never accept that behavior as part of the reality of the American experience.

Fraud affects every American.  Fraud is an evil, hidden malady- a disease that poisons the very life-blood of Liberty that sustains the United States of America.

During the elections process, instead of referrees and umpires, we have poll watchers and representatives from each political party present as observers and election judges during our elections.  Except where one political party prevents and blocks those poll watchers and representatives from observation or participation as required by law.   When that happens- it is a clear violation of law.  The remedy should be local law enforcement and then the court system to immediately correct the situation.  During the 2020 election however, some cities actually refused to follow the law, and even refused to follow legal court orders issued to grant access to poll observers.

Many people believe they watched the staggering amount of fraud that occured in many U.S. states and cities across the nation during election week of 2020.  Why is this so shameful?  Because these acts of fraud cancel and diminish the voices and votes of millions of Americans- and their voices have been silenced and stolen by that fraud.  Those votes were discounted and diluted.  Those votes were thrown out, canceled, destroyed and simply not fully counted due to various forms of corruption.  You may think your vote was counted, but that is not correct.

Every act or comittment of fraud or deceit through false registration or illegal voting, duplicate tabulation, manipulation by computer, or discarded or changed ballots… every act of fraud serves to diminish and cancel the effect of legitimate votes in a tangible way.  Every fraudulent vote cancels a legitimate vote by a U.S. citizen.   Every fraudulent vote by a non-resident of a state, or a non-citizen of the U.S. cancels the legitimate vote of real U.S. citizens and residents.  Every fraudulent vote that was “electronically transferred” by “glitches” and computer software acts to cancel every real legitimate vote by a real person.

That is precisely why America needs election integrity and legal voting audits in every city, county and state- especially as part of the voting process, and for recounts, and both forensic and computer verification for all elections moving foward.  America needs new voter verification laws now- real, trusted, ID-based verification systems that prevent fraud from the inception of voter registration through actual ballot submission and the counting of individual votes.

Locally we must all stand up and make our voices heard, and promote election integrity from the ground up.  There are volunteer opportunities in many locations, and through local government or political campaign officials.  Beyond personal participation, their are rallys and gatherings to promote change and we must educate and share what we know with others.  And for many of us, we can write and speak aloud our thoughts and continue to share knowledge.  We stand up for America in the best way we know how…. in any way we can try, and in the choices we embrace personally, both now and for the future.  Election integrity will be a critical and essential issue to the continued strength of the nation itself.

From a very personal standpoint, we must grasp the knowledge that every legal voice and every legal vote is indeed that important, and embrace our frustration in a more determined manner.  What we believe and what we are determined to change can begin to strengthen each individual within. People must begin to understand the Constitution, and the rule of law in America.  People must recognize where they see truth and realize that they do have the power to stand up for each other and our country in a peaceful yet forceful manner.

Americans must not accept the injustice of courruption and fraud. We embrace the strength within to engergize and charge our attention in a way that brings constructive determination.

“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something.
And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.”

Edward Everett Hale – (1822-1909) American Author, Historian, Clergyman, Grandnephew of Nathan Hale, and former Chaplain of the U.S. Senate

With that newfound sense of determination we move forward day-by-day.  We can only wonder personally how anyone can sanction or accept such violations of the public trust, and perhaps we think, “How dare anyone commit such acts that should take our voice and our vote away!”

For the sake of these United States and faith in our future elections, we must believe that change will occur in the future, to strengthen election integrity in America.   Many believed, hoped and prayed that the 2020 election challenges through the courts, the recounts and the audits would lead to different results, and that the U.S. Supreme Court would agree to “hear” the various cases that were relevant.  That did not happen however. The court cases were mostly irrelevant, and state legislative pre-eminence was not joined by the politicians to effect any change in outcome.

Even with the disappointment and challenges lost, Americans must believe and hold continued faith that truth and justice shall indeed win the day in the future- and that we can strengthen our elections process at the local and state level, and work for change in the years ahead. This is the way forward- to work towards what is truth, and leave behind what is false.

America will not long stand if we accept the evils of fraud and deceit in government at any level.   Elections are run by state and local government officials and volunteers who are charged with taking great care of every American’s highest intention in the form of their vote.  Thankfully the very great majority of these men and women are hardworking, honest citizens who work tirelessly to support their state elections systems.  Their roles are critical because fraud from any corner of the nation undermines all of the rest.

If we allow fraud in any of our future elections, then every legitimate ballot that is cancelled by fraud or fake ballots, thrown away, shredded and otherwise modified or destroyed by trustless partisans will change elections from a fair and legitimate outcome to a compromised and false pretense of validity.

The people of America deserve integrity in our elections.  We must work to foster change and improve what is the hightest form of our voices through our vote. 

America deserves nothing less than the truth.

Concerned about Fraud? Write to Your Representatives to Ensure Election Integrity

Millions of Americans are concerned about fraud and how that affects their vote and their voices during elections.

We must be active in our communities and take the time to communicate with our representatives- and tell them – respectfully, how we feel, and the concerns that we have for election integrity in the future.

The following is a sample letter as an example to use or share if desired.

You can find your representatives and their addresses at this link, and insert your zip code.

SAMPLE LETTER TO YOUR STATE AND FEDERAL REPRESENTATIVES:

From:  ( Your Name)

To:  The Honorable (Your Representative)

Dear Hon. Mr./Ms (Your Representative),

I believe that my rights both to vote, and to have my vote count, are critical elements of election integrity in the United States of America.

I believe that if election fraud occurs, that it means that my voice, and my vote would be diminished and defrauded by the actions of those who may have committed illegal acts, and prevented accurate voting and observation.

I am a valued Citizen of (YOUR STATE) and these United States.  I am most concerned about potential FRAUD and errors in accounting and tabulation such as:

  • Mail-in Voting Fraud
  • False registration to include deceased individuals voting in many states
  • Voting computer errors, mistabulation or intrusion into systems
  • Non-U.S. Citizens voting
  • Non-resident members of U.S. states voting in different cities and states
  • State laws that do not support election integrity and voter ID

Based on the above concerns, I believe that our votes could be “diminished and diluted ” by fraud in future elections in our state.

Please note that the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that:
“There is more to the right to vote than the right to mark a piece of paper and drop it in a box, or the right to pull a lever in a voting booth. The right to vote includes the right to have the ballot counted. It also includes the right to have the vote counted at full value without dilution or discount.” 
– U.S. Supreme Court, Justice Douglas, South v. Peters, 339 U.S. 276 (1950)

I respectfully request that you take every legal step in the future to ensure that elections integrity is assured for the residents of our state.

Please consider supporting laws to ensure that only legal, verified votes are counted in our elections.

Thank you and Most Respectfully Yours,

Signed//

Verify the Legal Votes

Election Integrity is an essential component of Democracy and a free America.  If fraud occurs in elections, then that fraudulent vote cancels a legitimate vote by a citizen of any nation holding those elections.  In the U.S., every fraudulent vote by a non-resident of a state, or a non-citizen acts to cancel the legitimate vote of real U.S. citizens and residents.  It really is that simple- every fraudulent or fake vote acts to cancel the real legitimate votes by real people.

Any act or comittment of fraud or deceit during the elections process through false registration or illegal voting, duplicate tabulation, manipulation by computer, or discarded or changed ballots… every act of fraud serves to diminish and cancel the effect of legitimate votes of U.S. citizens in a tangible way.

The citizens of America have the absolute right to a legal accounting of voting in every precinct room, county elections office and state legislature across the nation.  The government should pursue a rigorous elections integrity process to ensure fair elections for citizens of every political party.

In the United States, unfortunately, there are many different laws in each State that define how voting occurs locally.  Those laws have evolved based upon the needs and interests of the residents of those states.  Yet in modern times, these disparate and complex laws that differ among the states can present great confusion for voters before and during elections.

Consequently,  there is no single, verifiable national standard for voting legitimacy and accuracy.  That needs to change.

Moving forward, there needs to be a standard, unified FEDERAL statute or basis for Voter Verification.  Until that time, we will continue to see widespread incentives for fraud in our elections. 

“America deserves to know and to verify the legal votes, and to discern fraud apart from the honest intent of real U.S. citizens.”

In the United States of America in the year 2020, voting fraud concerns became a very real issue in many states and local election precincts. Based on the alleged fraud, the results of the U.S. Presidential Election were contested in several states with law suits and court rulings in both state and federal courts of law, and the U.S. Supreme Court.   None of the election challenges were successful, and the evidence of fraud- along with hundreds of witness statements and testimonials, were not considered in the courts of law.   Yet still there are concerns about potential fraud in future elections.
 

How can we ensure that voting is fair and accurate in the future?  How can the American people know that their voices- and their votes- will be heard?  How do we guarantee election integrity throughout the nation?

The answer should be simple:  The only path forward in future elections is to Verify the Legal Votes with some form of identification and assurance of election integrity.

Election Integrity is an essential component of Democracy and a free America.  If fraud occurs in elections, then that fraudulent vote cancels a legitimate vote by a citizen of any nation holding those elections.  In the U.S., every fraudulent vote by a non-resident of a state, or a non-citizen acts to cancel the legitimate vote of real U.S. citizens and residents.  It really is that simple- every fraudulent or fake vote acts to cancel the real legitimate votes by real people.

Any act or comittment of fraud or deceit during the elections process through false registration or illegal voting, duplicate tabulation, manipulation by computer, or discarded or changed ballots… every act of fraud serves to diminish and cancel the effect of legitimate votes of U.S. citizens in a tangible way.

To Prevent Voter Fraud, and Ensure Your Vote Counts, consider the following actions:

1. BE SURE you are REGISTERED to vote. If you recently MOVED: – RE-REGISTER to vote at your NEW ADDRESS. – CANCEL your OLD VOTER REGISTRATION at OLD address. – Pay attention to Registration Deadlines.

2. VOTE IN PERSON: Find out WHERE to vote, and vote IN PERSON at your Polling place. – Or Vote early- in person- if your State allows. – Take VALID Identification to ensure your RIGHT to Vote. – Vote regardless of media reports. Don’t believe early polls or media reports- Vote anyway. Your Vote matters!  

NOTE: *** If possible, do not give your ballot to poll  after voting *** There are reports of Poll Workers stating the Ballot machine tabulators are “not working” and they “will take care of it for you later.”  While that may be true – try to wait for the machines to work again.  Tell them you will wait.  The machines WILL start working again- this could be a temporary malfunction, or it could be a tactic for fraud.  But if you GIVE YOUR BALLOT to someone- or a poll worker- they could modify, change or destroy your ballot.  Whether intentional or not- it is better to PUT YOUR BALLOT INTO THE MACHINE YOURSELF.  ** (Provisional Ballots may require the Poll Worker to receive the ballot for later verification- and you may not be allowed to put a Provisional Ballot into the machine).

3. DO NOT VOTE BY MAIL unless absolutely necessary.

4. IF YOU ARE voting ABSENTEE and/or by mail: – REGISTER for ABSENTEE Ballot. – Fill out Ballot completely – SIGN the ballot with your OWN PERSONAL signature. (Some States require having Ballot notarized). – Place the ‘secrecy’ envelope inside the Ballot if your State uses one. SEAL your Ballot and TAPE OVER the envelope closures. – Take your Absentee Ballot to drop off at the County elections office for submission (Pay attention to return/mailing deadlines!).  If there is time, check your voter registration and status before the election to ensure someone did not request a ballot in your name.

5. DO NOT ALLOW YOUR BALLOT TO BE HANDLED or TAKEN from you without your CONSENT. It is YOUR VOTE!

6. IF VOTING Absentee by mail- VOTE YOUR BALLOT PERSONALLY at the Elections Office, or at the Post Office to ensure Postmark date. Pay attention to Mailing Deadlines to ensure Ballot arrives in time. – Use the Official Post Office Lobby to prevent FRAUD. – Avoid using mailboxes/drop boxes if possible.

7. Vote in YOUR LEGAL NAME ONLY. It is ILLEGAL to vote using someone else’s NAME, or in a FALSE name.

8. If you GIVE YOUR CONSENT for someone to handle your Ballot- You RISK LOSING your Ballot and your vote. – Make sure you TRUST the person or relative.

9. DO NOT ACCEPT money for your vote! That is a CRIME.

10. DO NOT GIVE up your Ballot to “collection groups” or agencies. DO NOT ALLOW “Ballot Harvesting” of YOUR VOTE.

By Voting IN PERSON at the polling place, or by Absentee Mail directly AT THE POST OFFICE LOBBY you are making sure that YOUR VOTE COUNTS!   ___________________________________________________________

Note:  If you are NOT a U.S. CITIZEN then DO NOT VOTE.  That Is ILLEGAL and considered a CRIME.

NON-U.S. CITIZENS are NOT allowed TO VOTE.

If you are an UNDOCUMENTED WORKER or in the U.S. ILLEGALLY – DO NOT VOTE.

If you VOTE as an UNDOCUMENTED WORKER or OUT-OF-STATUS IMMIGRANT or ALIEN, then you will RISK ALL potential future rights in becoming a U.S. CITIZEN.You RISK LOSING your residence and rights if you vote illegally.
