The above message sounds good. And I know we all want to believe. But the time for make believe is over. HR 1 (the For the People Act) will erase any fair elections. We have not had fair elections in decades. And here is the kicker: we all know it.
But I would like to address the above strategy because I too believed in 2009 that this might work. I became a precinct captain in Raleigh and had access to their voter database. This is what I learned:
- The Republican party in Wake county had no technical experience with data, effective organization or planning. This is why big tech dominated the Communist overthrow of the government in a short time frame.
- It was all show: the party was controlled by their own machine. You could attend and vote but the end result was fixed in most cases. In the cases where the vote did not go their way, they did an end run around it and still had their own way. If a vote was not going to go their way, they either cancelled the meeting or rescheduled it to an earlier time without notification. Remember Robin Hayes’ “election“?
- In North Carolina, the GOP has POOH rules concerning party actions which Tom Fetzer dismissed by attacking GOP primary candidates. Here is another example from the Daily Haymaker in 2015:
Well, you folks attending the convention have two choices: (1) bow your heads and follow your orders to retain the establishment power structure, or (2) send a message to Raleigh that creates the kind of aftershocks not felt in Raleigh since Jerry Meek upset Gov. Mike Easley’s NC Democrat Party chairman choice Ed Turlington.
Red pill or blue pill. Choose wisely.
I do not need to continue as I will let other readers provide comments from experience. Why do you think this site is called NCRenegade?
I do believe that some anomalies have happened. Look at the anointing of Lynda Bennett by Mark Meadows. The backdoor machinations between the Meadows’ family, the Freedom Caucus, the Asheville TEA Party and the GOP “leaders” almost succeeded. Fortunately, Ms. Bennett’s reputation in the real Tea Party/912 Groups was not forgotten or forgiven and Madison Cawthorn won. And of course the Trump anomaly where they misjudged the number of fake votes Hillary would need to win.
Free elections in this country are not free: they are bought with power and money. Whatever anomalies happened in the past, HR 1 has nailed that coffin closed.
