States across the country are beginning the much-anticipated assault on our electoral process. Gavin Newsom, embattled governor of California, is under great scrutiny for his executive order stating that California will not even be allowed to vote at the polls. His claimed reason for this is that “No Californian should be forced to risk their health in order to exercise their right to vote.” Sources inside the administration have also stated these new regulations will give elections officials much-needed flexibility. Californians have questioned exactly what “flexibility” is needed when counting votes.
Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, per the order of the Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer, seems to have lit a dangerous fuse this week by sending out “applications” to vote by mail for the upcoming elections. There are thousands of reports of people receiving several applications in seemingly random names, which begs the questions: Who are these people? Why are their applications being mailed to the wrong addresses? And if the state can’t be trusted with voter applications, how can they be trusted with mail-in ballots on Election Day?
“We won’t stand for it!” says Bill H, of Buckley Michigan. “They want to steal the election, but Michiganders are tougher than they think.”
Michigan has been the epicenter of civil unrest in recent weeks as Governor Gretchen Whitmer has defied both the legislative and judicial branches in order to try and control the people of her state, leaving only the executive branch to make decisions for Michiganders.
We are living in interesting times as we just celebrated Memorial Day, 2020. Governors across the country are defying the US constitution in the name of public health. We must always remember that when fear is controlling us, we are at risk of losing our liberties. This Memorial Day, as we remembered those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom, it is important that we remember the words “We the People” and that the rights we have were endowed by our Creator. We were born with those rights and it is a crime for anyone to take them away for any reason.
