ACRU Policy Board member Ken Blackwell discusses the dangers of federalizing the election system on Fox News. #EasyToVoteHardToCheat
Democrats and much of the media are pushing to make permanent the extraordinary, pandemic-driven measures to relax voting rules during the 2020 elections – warning anew of racist voter “suppression” otherwise. Yet democracies in Europe and elsewhere tell a different story – of the benefits of stricter voter ID requirements after hard lessons learned.
One of the false narratives constantly pushed by liberals is that the efforts of states to reform and fix vulnerabilities in their election systems are somehow examples of “voter suppression.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Making sure that every eligible citizen is able to vote and that their vote is not lost or stolen through fraud or errors is not voter suppression—it is good governance.
Democrats are pushing another federal takeover of elections with the so-called John Lewis Voting Right Advancement Act. This one is a power grab forcing states to get permission from the Democrat-controlled federal government before implementing election integrity measures like voter ID and other constitutional safeguards.
We should all be able to agree it should be easy to vote and hard to cheat. The integrity of the ballot box is essential to the continued success of the United States constitutional system. Now is the time to protect the integrity of every individual's vote by ensuring their votes are not diluted by fraudulent votes. Voter rolls across the country are filled with names of individuals who have moved, died, or are ineligible to legally vote.
The Tennessee Legislature has passed legislation that would require all absentee ballots to contain a watermark for added security.
Radicals are cramming a federal takeover of elections through a key vote on the 'Corrupt Politicians Act,' part of their plan with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to transform America into a permanent one-party socialist nation.
As 120 retired generals and admirals wrote -- 120 retired generals and admirals, in case you missed it, in an open letter, quote, "H.R.-1, S.R.-1, if passed, that would destroy election fairness, allow Democrats to forever remain in power, violating our Constitution, and ending our representative republic."
Twenty-one civil rights leaders and prominent black conservatives defended Georgia’s new election law in a letter to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, rejecting opponents’ comparisons to Jim Crow laws.
American Constitutional Rights Union Action Fund Board Member Ken Blackwell asks, “How low will Dems go on pushing Jim Crow narrative?” In his most recent article for the Washington Times, he notes that to grab more power, Dems are willing to use Black citizens as pawns, while obfuscating their history of Jim Crow laws and Black Codes.
