While any number of serious issues exist currently in the United States, including things like out-of-control inflation and a border crisis, Democrats are focused like a laser beam on passing a federal takeover of the voting system. In case you haven’t been taking notes, it’s completely out of bounds to question the veracity of our current election system — unless you want to mandate ballot harvesting, outlaw voter ID, and make mail-in voting universal across the country. Then, it’s totally cool to suggest our current elections aren’t free and fair.

In reality, there is no problem with ballot access or “voter suppression,” a made-up charge Democrats continue to provide no evidence for. Pelosi, AOC, and their cohorts simply want to be able to harvest votes, electioneer, and have ID-less mail-in voting that would allow basically anyone to send anyone else’s ballot in.
