This commentary won’t be long. No sense pontificating on the obvious. I’m gonna shoot straight and right at the target.

Both abortion and marijuana were legalized in red-state Ohio last night. Without going into the details, suffice it to say that honest elections are a thing of the past.

Look at this map.

The purple is where the city-folk live, Toledo, Cleveland, Akron, Canton, Youngstown, Dayton, Cincinnati, and Athens. Interestingly, each of those cities is also home to a State University. I wonder how many “college” voters are actually from Ohio? But….that is another issue.

If this nation is ever to return to honest elections there are three things that must happen and they must happen soon.

Election Day must once again become election DAY. Currently, someone came up with the idea of election MONTH. The LEFT has used “discrimination” once again as a thumb on the scales of our elections. GW Bush called it “the soft bigotry of low expectations.” The idea that some people, especially inner-city folks, don’t have the ability to get to the polls on Election Day has been used to stuff the ballot boxes. People will deny it. But that is the Truth.

In the disputed election of 2020 did you know that only 31% of all ballots cast were done by IN PERSON voting? Read and weep. That means that 69% of all voters NEVER WENT TO THE POLLS. Non in-person voting opens the floodgates to fraud. Mail in ballots require almost no true authentication. Hence, the ballot stuffing and ballot harvesting accusations that lead to the J6 fiasco. More evidence.

I had the opportunity to hear Dr Douglas Frank explain how rampant voter fraud is in America. Lots of good info here. Dr. Frank explains that the biggest fraud occurs not in ELECTRONIC voting machines…but in fraudulent voter ROLLS. False registrations, especially in the large cities, are used to increase the number of voters in the precincts. With mail-in ballots, the verification of registered voters is almost non-existent. Cleaning up the voting rolls is a must. Check the info from Dr Frank. MANY cities had MORE REGISTERED VOTERS THAN VOTING AGE CITIZENS.

You would think both teams would want honest and fair elections so that the will of the people would truly prevail. You would be mistaken.

And now they are registering illegal immigrants, who, of course, will be able to vote by mail. What could possibly go wrong?

Here is the solution.

  1. We must return to Election DAY in-person voting. Absentee ballots ONLY for those verified as unable to make it to the polls. Perhaps we could extend to 2 days…Tuesday and Wednesday for those with schedule conflicts.
  2. No voting machines. Hand counted ballots only. Personal photo ID required. The Board of Elections could provide photo ID for those who need one prior to election Day.
  3. Purge the local voting rolls of those who have died, or moved.

Josef Stalin said: “Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the vote decide everything.” Soloman said “A false balance is abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is his delight.” Proverbs 11 says “The Lord hates dishonest scales, but He is pleased with honest weights.”

For over 200 years America followed the legal tradition of election DAY: Check this out!

The Tuesday next after the 1st Monday in November, in every even numbered year, is established as the day for the election, in each of the States and Territories of the United States, of Representatives and Delegates to the Congress commencing on the 3rd day of January next thereafter.” That WAS the law.

Every Holiday in America occurs on a DAY. Christmas Day, Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day, Veterans Day, Labor Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day…Ironically, only two issues now have their own month…PRIDE month…and ELECTION MONTH.

Abe Lincoln said “the ballot is stronger than the bullet.” Al Gore famously pushed for a “lock box” on Social Security. I say it is time for a “lock box” on the “ballot box.”

A broken ballot box is destroying America. It is time to change the locks.
