In recent elections, voter fraud and ballot harvesting have become more frequent. People and groups have argued for both sides as to whether this is true or not, yet to deny that it is happening seems to be far-fetched. In the middle of this are the privileges of “vote-by-mail” options. As a nation we have “progressed” from in-person, photo ID required citizenship, to all-mail-in-voting for both absentee and all-mail-in circumstances. Some are pushing for non-citizen voting, felon voting privileges, etc. Certain candidates/parties are raising money to pay off criminal debts to secure votes for their party or candidate (quid pro quo).
The fact that voter fraud is happening is clearly seen in a recent New York Post article stating, “…paid workers illegally gather absentee ballots from elderly Somali immigrants…I have 300 ballots in my car right now…” and “…ballot harvesters ‘took every single ballot’ from elderly people in a Minneapolis public housing complex – the Charles Horn Towers.” It was further revealed that, “Cash, cash, cash. They were carrying bags of money…When you vote and they mark you off, then you get in the van, they give you the cash.’”
This is not the way a Democratic Republic runs. Instead, this represents a very different government some have called a banana republic, where bullying and force are the means to make things happen. It is time to get back to basics where law, order, truth and justice rule. Where each legal citizen gets one legal vote. No one is coerced, no one “raised from the dead” to vote, etc.. It may seem ridiculous to even say these things, but that is where we are. The examples of election fraud continues to mount.
As a nation, we are to follow the directive in James 5:12, “Let your ‘Yes’ be yes, and your ‘No’, no, or you will be condemned.”
Job 34, 16-17, “If you have understanding, hear this; listen to what I say. Can he who hates justice govern? Will you condemn the just and mighty One?”
Romans 12:8, Leaders are to, “…govern diligently.”
Questions to ask regarding voting privileges and methods should include:
1. Do they promote what is right, or open the door to wrong-doing?
2. Will the methods be regarded as admirable or as chaos causing?
3. Are the motives pure or self-serving and questionable?
4. Are they excellent and praiseworthy? If not, then remove them. If so, then put them in place.
(These principles are taken from Philippians 4:8)
In summary, when elections are being challenged at every turn due to fraud concerns, keeping to the most basic forms of purity and simplicity will result in the most honest and accurate election results.
