October 22, 2020 (Turning Point Project) — On election day, you will have to make a choice between two political parties and two presidential candidates. Several days later you will in all probability have to make another choice. In the case of a closely contested election, whose side will you take?

No matter who wins, the losing side will very likely charge that the election was stolen. And if the losing side is the Republicans, that claim could very well be true.

If Republicans produce solid evidence that the election was, in fact, stolen, what then? Should they, nevertheless, graciously step aside in favor of the illegitimate “winners” for the sake of peace, and in the hope that the American system will eventually right itself? After all, our constitutional system of checks and balances was designed to prevent one faction in government from acquiring excessive power.

But what if this is the last chance election? What if one side has no intention of respecting the Constitution or of upholding the system of checks and balances? What if one side wants to pack the Supreme Court and give voting rights to Washington, D.C.; Puerto Rico; and any other U.S. territory likely to vote Democrat? What if future elections are no freer than the sham elections held in totalitarian societies?

Our system of government assumes that all parties adhere to the same basic principles — life, liberty, equality under the law, freedom of speech, freedom of religion. It’s understood, of course, that different people will apply those principles in different ways. The system is designed for differences of opinion. But is it designed for widespread betrayal? What if one faction or party simply rejects those principles? What if, for example, a political party only gives lip service to freedom of speech while actively working to suppress it? What if government representatives no longer believe in the oath of office they took — ”to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic”?

Generation after generation of Americans have assumed that we would never come to that point. But we’re at that point now.

Voter fraud is real, and threatens November's election outcome.

Please SIGN this urgent petition which asks each state legislature to pass emergency legislation to stop or scrap plans for universal mail-in ballots.

Universal mail-in ballots are ballots which would be automatically sent to every voter on the register, without voters having to apply for them.

So far, 9 state have mandated universal mail-in ballots because of the COVID crisis, but more are considering the policy.

Under normal circumstances, voters who intend to be away from home on polling day can request an absentee ballot from their state's election authority.

The key difference between absentee ballots and universal mail-in ballots is that with absentee ballots voters undergo a vetting process which requires them to prove who they are and sign an application form.

AND, crucially, absentee voters expect to receive their ballot in the mail.

But, with universal mail-in voting, the intended recipient may not expect their ballot in the mail. Indeed, some people may be totally unaware of this initiative. And, moreover, no-one need prove their identity and sign an application.

Obviously, this practice is ripe for abuse and voter fraud.

From the state sending out ballots to people who no longer live in the voting district (especially when the state does not require people to update their voting status if they move out of the state) to ballot theft, there are several major threats to the integrity of the vote.

In fact, judges around the country have already started to make known their displeasure with different aspects of mail-in ballots:

  • In New Jersey - A judge just ordered an election redo over massive voter fraud using mail-in ballots.
  • In Iowa - A judge just voided the application for 50,000 mail-in ballots which had voters' information pre-filled on the forms.

The purpose of this petition is to ensure the integrity of the vote.

And, the petition appeals to each state legislature to stop or scrap plans for universal mail-in ballots because of the serious potential for voter fraud.

Although this policy would require one additional step to complete the process of voting, the democratic process must be safeguarded as much as humanly possible for this election.

Please SIGN this petition and SHARE with your like-minded friends, family and colleagues.

Thank you!

Some suggest that we’re on the brink of a coup. That is quite likely. But the big coup that will transform our government and our lives beyond recognition has been built on the foundation of numerous smaller coups. Of course, “smaller” is not exactly the right word. Some of these coups — such as the takeover of our educational system from kindergarten through graduate school — have been massive. While most Americans were looking the other way, left-wing educators managed to steal the affections and loyalties of our children. As President Trump put it in his July 4th Mount Rushmore speech: “Against every law of society and nature, our children are taught in school to hate their own country and to believe that the men and women who built it were not heroes, but were villains.”

In recent years, we have also witnessed two other large-scale coups — the takeover of the mainstream media by people who reject the American heritage, and the takeover of social media by a collection of “woke” billionaire technocrats who look upon freedom of speech as an outmoded relic of the past. However, the biggest coup of all, thus far, is the takeover of the Democratic Party by the revolutionary left. Should the Democrats win the election, the 245-year-old American experiment in liberty will come to an end — perhaps gradually at first, but then with increasing speed.

When the full force of the new revolutionary order is felt, people won’t know what hit them. They won’t know because they don’t have the historical context to understand that the taking away of liberties is what revolutionary leftists always do. Younger Americans will know everything about the danger of climate change and the virtue of wearing a mask, but they will have learned precious little about the Soviet gulags, the Chinese communist re-education camps, and the imprisonment and torture of dissidents in communist Cuba.

There is no guarantee that the American system of government and the American way of life will survive. We cannot, as columnist Tony Blankely observed 15 years ago, “assume that the benign trends of the recent past will continue.” Instead, he cautioned, “we need to think in terms of when current trends will stop — and what will follow them.”

Of course, we should not think of the American experiment with self-government as a trend. Rather, it is one of history’s most splendid achievements — a priceless gift to succeeding generations. We must be prepared, however, for the possibility that it can come to an end, or rather, be put to an end. And we must, as Blankely warned, think about what will follow. We may have to start thinking about that future in as little as two weeks.
