While many people have bought into the lie that candidate Joe Biden has won the 2020 election for president of the United States, he clearly has not. He has not been certified by any state legislature. He was merely pronounced by the corporate media to have won, based on the faulty and fraudulent results of some state voting totals which made it appear that he had won.
However, the election results in many states are being challenged by President Donald Trump’s legal team, which has collected thousands of affidavits from witnesses and has compiled enough evidence that shows rampant election fraud in predominantly Democrat counties and states. The fact that this fraud has occurred is reason to standardize the voting process and streamline elections across the nation. No longer should individual states be allowed to make up their own election laws, which is what the state of Pennsylvania did months before Election Day. Every state should be required to follow the same set of election rules and procedures.
Since there seems to be some confusion as to how elections work, and since there seems to be ambiguity among different states in how voting occurs, election law should be codified federally and should not favor one party over another. Here is how it should look going forward.
One-day voting. Voting should take place on one day, Election Day, between a reasonable set of hours (e.g. 5am to 8pm). Under certain circumstances absentee voting may be allowed (e.g. for military and other select circumstances). In instances where people travel for work and are not able to be home to vote, they must be approved to vote by absentee ballot, and the approval process must be extremely strict, but absentee voting should be severely limited. Concessions should be made for each legal voter to take time on the day of election to vote. No company should be able to terminate any employee who wishes to exercise his/her constitutional right to vote. This means companies should schedule their everyday business with the day of election in mind.
No mail-in voting. There should be no mail-in voting, period. States should not be allowed to mail unsolicited ballots to residents, as many states and certain counties do. This has proven to be a system rife for fraudulent activity. Too many things could and do go wrong within this kind of system.
National Voter ID required. This is just common sense. Each voter should be required to show a national voter identification card in order to vote. Anyone without one should be turned away and barred from being within 100 feet or more of a voting center. There is no argument against a national voter ID policy that is legitimate. Anyone arguing against this appears to be a proponent of election fraud. Every legal citizen is able and has ample time to obtain a national voter ID so there is nothing racist, xenophobic, bigoted or otherwise about it. Those who are against a national voter ID are those who wish to cheat the system. Further, all legal citizens obtaining a national voter ID card should be required to show proof of citizenship. There should be no exceptions, period.
Military oversight. To avoid partisanship, the United States military should oversee all elections. There should be a team of military or National Guard members present at every voting center to maintain order. They should oversee the vote count and provide the vote totals to the federal state department. Representatives from each party should be allowed entry into voting centers to witness the count and observe all aspects of the counting process. Likewise they should be allowed to stop the count and question any aspect or procedure. If any observer is found to be deliberately obstructing the process, a replacement should be made. If any election official prevents or attempts to prevent an observer from entering the voting center, that official should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
All ballots to be hand-counted. To ensure the correct election results, all ballots should be hand-counted. This means that there will no longer be votes cast using computers or touchpads. Ballots will be designed to be easy to read and easy to fill out, leaving no question as to the intent of the selections made. Additionally, all ballots should be counted a minimum of three times. This can be done by having three different teams count the same batch of ballots, then compare the counts. This will make it easier to find discrepancies in counts and harder for vote fraud to occur.
No race called until count is complete. During the vote and the count process, the progress of the count should be kept confidential and not available to the media. All legal and legitimate votes should be counted before any winner is announced for any race. This will put the media into a frenzy and disrupt their election night coverage but so be it. The objective is to eliminate influence. As such, all media companies should not be allowed access inside voting centers and should be forbidden to call elections. It should be the responsibility of one designated entity to call an election for the winning candidate of any given race.
Equal representation. No state should have a one-party rule format, such as California has rigged for itself, which favors Democrats. Only one candidate from each party should be allowed to run in any given race. No race should have two candidates from the same party running.
Polling accountability. Polls taken before elections and during campaign seasons render unfair influence on voters. Many polls are interpreted by biased polling companies and organizations to make the campaign climate appear to be something that it is not. For this reason polling companies should make it clear upon releasing the “results” of their polls that they are not scientific and are subject to being highly flawed. Any polling company and organizations associated with them that fail to do this should be fined and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
USPS accountability. Since several employees of the United States Postal Service were caught discarding election mail and others claiming unscrupulous activity occurred during the 2020 election season, it should be extensively investigated and federal election officials should take extreme measures to ensure that all election mail is properly handled in the future.
Obviously many of these proposals will need to be ironed out and fine-tuned if they are to become part of election law, and still other things will need to be considered, but it’s at least a good first step toward recovering the integrity of our elections.
