Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are exploiting the coronavirus crisis – again

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

Wild-eyed Democrats in Washington and all over the country see an opportunity in the coronavirus crisis and are starting to beat the drum to change election laws to allow America to vote by mail in the 2020 election. Ostensibly, voting by mail would make the country safer, allowing people to stay home to avoid the coronavirus which experts are predicting will still be a danger in the fall.

House Democrats included language in the recently passed Coronavirus Response bill mandating vote-by-mail elections. The language was removed by Senate Leader Mitch McConnell because the law would “federalize” national elections, removing the states’ abilities to run elections their way. The Democrats didn’t let that defeat deter them, and they are including billions of dollars in their next coronavirus bill to implement vote-by-mail throughout the country.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi argued:

Vote by mail is so important to … our democracy so that people have access to voting and not be deterred, especially at this time, by the admonition to stay home,” Pelosi told reporters.

Actually, vote by mail is so important to …Democrats because it gets them one step closer to the method that won them wild majorities in California and the House of Representatives. That method is ballot harvesting.

Ballot harvesting

“Ballot harvesting” was used by Democrats to collect absentee ballots in the 2018 election in California. It is legal in California because of a change to their absentee ballot election law. But being legal doesn’t make it right.

AB 1921 amended section 3017 of California election code and was signed into law in 2016 by Governor Jerry Brown, to allow anyone to collect mail-in ballots and turn them into the polling place. Before the amendment, only family members or residents sharing the household were allowed to turn the ballots in.

What is ballot harvesting? According to the San Diego Tribune:

Ballot harvesting” is political jargon for a practice in which organized workers or volunteers collect absentee ballots from certain voters and drop them off at a polling place or election office.

So, after the slight change in the law, ballot harvesting was legally used in California by the Democrats. They won astonishing victories in the congressional races, taking 47 of 53 seats and shifting the House of Representatives to a Democrat majority with Nancy Pelosi as the Speaker of the House.

Apparently, the California Republican Party just wasn’t as good at harvesting ballots, though they could have legally done the same thing. Perhaps they were standing on principle, but this is war and the Democrats are winning.  The Republicans’  lack of foresight cost them their majority in the House, giving power to the radical Democrats and leading to the impeachment of the president of the United States, disturbing the peace of the country and the world.

The un-seated Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was just dumbfounded by the Democrat sweep in California, saying:

“California just defies logic to me… We were only down 26 seats the night of the election & 3 weeks later, we lost basically every contested CA race. This election system they have – I can’t begin to understand what ‘ballot harvesting’ is.

The Republican party needs to gird up its loins, engage in the war and oppose the federalizing of elections and vote-by-mail schemes. So far, Senate Leader Mitch McConnell seems willing to do that.
