I will always stand for free and fair elections that are secure, lawful, and constitutional. Under the guise of the pandemic, the 2020 election was left wide open for malfeasance, fraud, and processes that made much of the country lose confidence in our electoral system. Now more than ever, we need to do serious work to secure our election systems that safeguard our Republic from fraud, corruption, and tyranny.
The 2020 election was taken over by big tech overlords. From banning the sitting President of the United States to censoring private citizens and from promoting conspiracies to suppressing the truth, Facebook, Twitter, and Google actively attacked the heart of our constitutional republic. Facebook even sent hundreds of millions of dollars—otherwise known as Zuckerbucks—to Democrat voting precincts to fund get out the vote efforts in key districts to help Democrats win. Big tech has gone too far, and I won’t stand for it. I will work to rein in big tech’s control over our elections in order to protect our constitutional republic.
Instead of working for real election security, Democrats are trying to sell a partisan federal takeover of elections as an election security measure. I’ve led the opposition to their H.R. 1, since it would ban voter ID laws, federalize our elections, weaponize the IRS against conservatives, give D.C. statehood, use tax dollars to fund politicians’ campaigns, give California even more power over Colorado, nationalize mail-in voting, and make it harder to audit election results. These efforts are not only unconstitutional, but they would bring total distrust to the electoral process.
We need strong election security measures led by the states and supported by the federal government. Sweeping federal regulations and activist court decisions are not the way to secure our elections, since Article 1 Section 4 of the Constitution exclusively gives state legislatures the power to govern election law.
As the leader of the free world, America needs to have free and fair elections. Americans have the right to demand transparency and accountability in their electoral system. I will always support voter ID laws, signature verification checks, free and fair access to election observers, prohibitions on ballot harvesting, the right to vote in person, and efforts to ensure the accuracy of voter registration rolls. When it comes to our elections, all Americans should unite around one simple goal: let’s make it easy to vote and hard to cheat.
