A look back at the November election… Yes, the elections were a disappointment. While Republicans did take control of the House, conservatives were expecting many more electoral victories.

Was there a Red Wave? Yes, there was!

Voters were told that if they turned out in big numbers on Election Day, they could overwhelm the fraud with a Red Wave. And voters did turn out in huge numbers. In New York State, for example, while Lee Zeldin lost the gubernatorial race, Republicans picked up three new Congressional seats moving the state delegation to 15D – 11R. This was an upset victory that secured Republican control of the House.

If there was a Red Wave, why did so many candidates lose?

The answer to that question depends on whom you ask. It’s easy to ignore concerns over election fraud and point to the Republicans’ lack of a good ground game.  That is a valid criticism—a criticism, by the way, that underscores the poor performance of the Republican Party infrastructure, not a reflection of endorsements by conservative leaders, most notably Donald Trump.

The surging polls and the late spending by party-aligned PACs in races that should have been secure Democratic seats indicated that Republicans and Democrats alike expected a Red Wave. The large turnout of ‘day-of’ voters reinforced that expectation. Yet, we lost.  We lost not only too many swing seats that should have been Republican pick-ups (e.g., Bo Hines in NC-13 or Esther Joy King in IL-17), but we lost critical races. Joe Kent WA-03 was not running in a swing district, but he was likely one of the Republican candidates the D.C. Swamp most wanted to lose. Joe Kent’s narrow loss (unconfirmed) typifies Republican losses in pick-up districts across the board. The same can be said for the dubious results in Kari Lake’s race in Arizona. (Of course, these races aren’t decided yet because the candidates have the guts not to bow to liberal pressure and concede without a full and fair investigation of election irregularities.)

The 2020 election was the blueprint the Left needed to anticipate and counter a Red Wave on Election Day. In Pennsylvania, county by county, Fetterman had to match or beat Biden’s 2020 percentages over Trump’s in order to defeat Oz. Similarly, the Democrats were prepared for a wave in Arizona. Knowing more attention would be paid to machine algorithm fraud this time, ballot harvesting, machine malfunctions, and printer problems apparently played a big part, plus the dubious option of placing your uncounted ballot in Box 3.
Among the most troubling issues raised in the letter directed to Thomas Liddy with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office was the apparent co-mingling of ballots in black duffle bags in at least one polling location, which were successfully run through the on-site tabulators with those put in “Door 3” to be sent to the Election Department’s downtown Phoenix tabulation center because they could not be read.

200 Votes in Box 3

What’s the good news, and where do we go from here?

Don’t be discouraged that so many good candidates lost or that ballot harvesting and other irregularities were still all too common in our elections. The fact is, it still matters that you vote. In fact, it matters more than ever that we all vote in large numbers. The higher the voter turnout, the harder it is for them to cheat, and the more apparent election fraud is to the average voter. Think of it this way: it makes “their” life more miserable when we all go out and vote.

One positive result of this election is the growing awareness in the American public that vote fraud is a real, pervasive problem. A whole lot more voters in Arizona and across the country looked at the systemic problems on Election Day and concluded something was very wrong with our elections. Not to mention that two weeks after the election, we still didn’t have final results in all races including some California Congressional races, the Arizona gubernatorial race, and the Alaska Senate race. All this is more evidence that it is time to go back to hand-marked, hand-counted, paper ballots cast on Election Day, in local precincts—not centralized voting centers.

Going forward, the battle for election integrity needs to be fought at the state level.

-We need model legislation for election integrity. Florida was a bright spot-on Election Day. Is Florida’s law the best? Does it have flaws? What other states have good laws and election systems?

-We need more people working in the local parties. We need to get involved with our local Republican Parties and volunteer with local races for candidates and ballot issues. We need to network not just with other patriots, but with party officials and county election staff. We the People need to be more involved in our government.

The best campaign and election training you can get is by going out and volunteering for a campaign, meeting fellow conservative volunteers in your area, and forming new friendships.

Last, and most importantly: Stay cheerful, stay optimistic.

We are engaged in an important battle to restore America’s constitutional freedoms, but we are not unique. Every generation has to fight to keep our freedoms and to defend our miraculous U.S. Constitution. Fighting for the restoration of our rights and liberties, for the rule of law and morality, truly is the Lord’s work. It is a blessing to be engaged in that battle. So don’t give in to discouragement. The enemies of freedom would like nothing better. 

“Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: ‘In God is our trust.’
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

-Star Spangled Banner
