UPDATE: The Kansas lawmakers also overrode the Governor’s veto of a bill to safeguard election integrity. It bans ballot harvesting, limits electioneering, bars private funds such as the millions given by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg from being used to administer elections, and prohibits the Governor or Secretary of State from making unilateral changes in election laws under the guise of an “emergency.”
ORIGINAL STORY: Election results from over the weekend are still rolling in, and they’re not very good omens for the Democrats in 2022, or for anyone pushing the current rabid “woke” culture.
For instance, residents of Southlake, Texas, defied an ocean of slanted media coverage calling them racist for opposing racist “anti-racism” indoctrination in schools. They turned out in numbers larger than in the presidential election to vote for a mayor, two city council members and two school board members. And they made it clear that they want Marxist “Critical Race Theory” out of their schools.
Here’s more proof of how much voting in local elections matters: the Republicans have enough votes in the Kansas House and Senate that they just overrode the Democrat Governor’s veto of a bill to lower the concealed carry age limit from 21 to 18. It seems odd that Democrats think Americans are mature enough to vote at 16, mature enough to join the Army at 18, but not mature enough to own a gun until they’re 21.
And here are more reasons why the Democrats’ House majority could be in trouble.
A reminder: things only change when you go out and vote. I know a lot of Republicans are feeling discouraged and think the elections are rigged and saving America is a lost cause. Well, it doesn't look nearly as bleak as it has in other times, like Washington’s or Lincoln’s. We’ve faced worse and triumphed. But we didn’t do it by sitting on the sofa and watching Netflix while letting people who wanted to destroy America take over. The good news is that you’re not being asked to sacrifice your lives, your fortunes and your sacred honor. You just have to speak up, volunteer, organize, campaign, help turn out the base and go vote yourself. Doesn’t sound all that hard when you put it in context. And look at this weekend’s elections to see how well it works.
Never forget: the people who want to change America into a socialist dystopia are very loud but small in numbers. They’re just the tail wagging the dog. Go vote and bob that tail.
