BRYCE ON POLITICS
– Another polarizing element between Left and Right.
Arguably the two biggest issues facing the American people today deals with illegal immigration and voting. Interestingly, I believe the two are related. However, there are sharp differences in interpretation between liberals and conservatives and reflects a deep divide between the two groups.
As to illegal immigration, liberals do not believe in national borders thereby causing the current influx of illegal immigration. It is their hope illegals will be granted citizenship and voting rights, thereby enabling Democrats to remain in power.
On the other hand, conservatives want tighter control at the border, thereby thwarting illegal voting, illegal distribution of benefits, and curb human trafficking and drug importation.
Voting also has two differing perspectives. Liberals claim the new election laws enacted by Republican-led states represent “voter suppression.” They insist the laws are being enacted to prevent minorities from voting. As such, they label these laws as “racist” and akin to “Jim Crow laws.” They use the “Jim Crow” moniker knowing the public has no sense of history and have forgotten it was created by the Democrats, the same people who gave us “Jim Crow” and advocated slavery.
Conservatives, instead, are promoting “election integrity” as a means to promote lawful voting. This can hardly be construed as “voter suppression,” but this is what the Democrats would have us believe. Republicans thereby are creating state laws to promote proper Voter ID, reasonable hours to vote early, and honest absentee voting. To illustrate, there is nothing in the recent Texas state election bills ( HB3 and SR1 ) that could possibly be construed as “voter suppression,” yet this is what Texas Democrats insist it is. Interestingly, the bills begin by claiming they are, “enacted solely to prevent fraud in the electoral process and ensure that all legally cast ballots are counted.” Having read the legislation, I have to agree.
Knowing Republicans have the votes to pass the legislation, Texas Democrats fled the state, and flew to Washington, DC to seek comfort from the Biden administration and Congressional Democrats. As part of this, they want to federalize voting as per House Resolution 1 (H.R.1), the “For the People” Act which is aimed at encouraging more votes, not validating them. As I wrote in March on this subject , “There is nothing in the bill about validating voter identity, verification of signatures, or checking rolls in a uniform manner. This is all about harvesting votes for the Democrats in an unscrupulous manner.”
Let’s be clear about something from the onset, H.R.1 is un-Constitutional as the right to determine voting is a state issue, not federal (see Article I, Section 4 of the Constitution, whereby, “The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof;” Aside from the Electoral College, this is also true for the Executive Branch.
I also find it interesting the role the News Media plays in all of this. Most outlets claim this is about “voter suppression,” not “election integrity.” This is obviously being orchestrated by someone behind the scenes. To illustrate, I found two columns with almost identical content:
Techbondhu – by Serilda – July 9th The bills – House Bill 3 and Senate Bill 1 – were filed during the special legislative session called by Gov. Greg Abbott, which started Thursday. Republican leaders vowed to take another pass at approving voting legislation after Texas House Democrats blocked a previous effort in May to pass more voting restrictions.
NPR – by Ashley Lopez – July 12th The bills – House Bill 3 and Senate Bill 1 – were filed during the special legislative session called by Gov. Greg Abbott, which started last week. Republican leaders vowed to take another pass at approving voting legislation after Texas House Democrats blocked a previous effort in May to pass more voting restrictions.
It is as if someone from the left wrote the article first, distributed it to the news media, and allowed them to fine tune it to suit their needs. Not only is this plagiarism, and shows to what length the Left will go, but it demonstrates how the news media works. As an aside, I have also seen this done with “Letters to the Editor,” where the same comments are posted in different newspapers across the USA.
The truth is, this is about manipulating and controlling the vote in order to maintain a tyrannical grasp of power. It has absolutely nothing to do with racism and “Jim Crow,” which is nothing more than a clever subterfuge. What we are witnessing is another test of the U.S. Constitution, to wit, do we accept illegal immigration and voting, or do we not? This will inevitably end up in the Supreme Court.
P.S. – As one friend said to me recently, “You notice Democrats are fine with vaccine cards, but not Voter IDs?” Just saying.
Keep the Faith!
