I confidently presume to speak on behalf of many tens of millions of people, regardless of partisan leanings, who like me — a rube — feel egregiously cheated witnessing the what appears to be racketeers stealing our precious individual votes.
Sure, I know that those single ballot choices I make aren't going to swing any elections.
So maybe in the big scheme of outcomes they don't amount to much. I could just save the time and effort of going to a polling station, the post office, or a drop off box . . . who would know the difference?
And I care a heck of a lot about that.
Lots and lots of others feel the same.
I see it in their solemn expressions in the voting lines.
Sometimes I'm tempted to try to casually guess by their outward appearances whether their choices will cancel or support mine. But, overall, there is something about them — the shared atmosphere of the experience — that supersedes all.
Everyone — all who await their turns to participate in determining who will best represent their community and national priorities – and those volunteers who generously gave of their time to confirm legitimate voter identities — they obviously care.
After all, what actual value does my vote your vote- really warrant?
What "price" would you sell it for?
Mine isn't for sale at any price.
It would be a betrayal of something beyond anything I can ever imagine putting in a market.
How would you respond if someone offered to pay for your vote in exchange for something — a free tee shirt — for example?
I've heard of that happening.
Would that be legal?
Is the alleged ballot harvesting from nursing homes in some states legal as well?
It's ugly enough realizing that every single dead person's vote may very well cancel one of yours or mine, but then contemplate hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of such thefts that collectively dilute equal numbers of ours.
Racketeers seem to be actively targeting a massive state vote hijacking effort upon a crucial upcoming Georgia contest that will determine control of the U.S. Senate, and in many respects, our nation's future.
Former Democrat presidential primary candidate Andrew Yang is urging out-of-state party residents to temporarily move to Georgia for the sole purpose of defeating Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue in their runoff elections against Democrats Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock on Jan. 5.
To expedite this apparently transparent fraud, Yang told Democrat interlopers from other states to "get ready to head to Georgia to give Joe [Biden] a unified government."
Yang warned, "There isn't much time. The earliest date for absentee ballots to be mailed for the runoff is Nov. 18. The registration deadline is Dec. 7. The In-person early voting begins Dec. 14."
Georgia law states that it is a felony to vote in Georgia elections if you are not a legal resident or if you are residing in the state briefly with the intention just to vote and then move away.
Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger issued a warning that groups who finance or organize such efforts to interfere with election integrity can be charged with committing fraud under Georgia's Racketeering Conspiracy laws with severe consequences.
If true, persuasive current, organized systemic electronic and illegal write-in ballot vote tabulation fraud on state and nationwide levels amounts to nothing less than all-out criminal warfare on our rights and liberties.
Those who assert that demands for full investigations of such factually supported allegations undermine the stability of our government institutions, processes and leaderships are fundamentally and dangerously misguided.
Regardless of the outcomes — whether individually wished for or not — what matters most is a shared belief in the fairness of processes that determine our common confidence of legitimacy regarding those chosen to represent us.
The key issue here is not exclusively tied to whether various assaults on our voting rights rise to a level that will drive or change the ultimate results one way or another.
More, a central urgency revolves around whether we, a free society, turn blind eyes to all such improper behaviors whether committed for ideology, control or any other motive — where rigged systems and unaccountable injustices become a banana republic norm.
Something enormously large is at stake here . . . that same something that motivated us to cast our small, caring rube votes for candidates, visions and legislative programs that racketeers view only as chits to be nullified in sinister orchestrated machine agendas.
That something we stand to lose is the America we know, love, and honor by protecting our priceless inherited privileges. We the disenfranchised rubes, must stand steadfastly united for reforms at that precarious precipice.
