A few months ago, we noted that ballots are what wins elections in many swing states where 2020 was stolen from us. Ballots—not votes. The GOP either needs to embrace every ballot gathering tactic that the left employs in 2024, or we’re going to lose the country.
President Trump has come around to this position as well. He’s announced that he is now actively raising money for ballot harvesting operations in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
It’s time for all of us as conservatives to face some cold, hard facts. We are the majority in this country, but we’ve gotten incredibly lazy when it comes to voting and preserving our own liberty. Your vote is the only non-violent power that you have left, so we should all be using our voices in every election—local, county, state and federal.
Texas just had a bunch of municipal elections and turnout was abysmal. Tarrant County (Fort Worth) had just 8.67% turnout in its most recent election. Other cities had turnout as low as 3.5%. If 20% of Republican voters had shown up, they could have flipped the entire city council and local school boards red. We suck at this, folks. We don’t show up when it counts, and then we turn around and complain when some tranny is rubbing “her” testicles on the kids in the library. We don’t have to live like this, but it takes work.
Ballot harvesting is repugnant to most of us on the right. But do you know what? If we don’t use the same tactic to beat the Democrats at their own game, we’re going to lose it all. If cheating is the mechanism by which elections are won in this country, then we need to cheat harder. And if ballot harvesting is the mechanism that will decide the elections in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, then we need to harvest ballots too.
Trump totally understands this now. We can’t change the system if we don’t win! He talked about the importance of Republicans embracing ballot harvesting just the other day:
“Our goal will be one-day voting with only paper ballots. But until that day comes, the Republican Party and the RNC must compete using every lawful means to win. That means swamping the left with mail-in votes, early votes and Election Day votes. Where we can’t get rid of drop boxes, we need them in every church and veteran center. And until we can eliminate ballot harvesting, we must become masters at ballot harvesting.”
I personally hate ballot harvesting. But guess what I’m doing in my neighborhood during the 2024 election? Since ballot harvesting is legal in my state, I’m going to the local GOP office and then I’m going to beat the pavement and knock on doors and make sure that every Republican in my neighborhood votes. And I’m going to harvest their ballots to turn them in, if they need me to. We’re out of excuses on this.
We only have 20% turnout in primary elections, and then we complain that incumbents like John Cornyn or Lisa Murkowski are “unbeatable.” We’re so lame. And I’m including myself in this.
Democrats have this stuff down. They’ll drag hoboes to the ballot box on Election Day and give them a bag of weed or a carton of smokes for a single ballot. Rep. Ilhan Omar’s campaign got caught paying Somali immigrants for their unfilled ballots in 2020. They did it on camera in front of one of James O’Keefe’s undercover reporters. But a lot of us on the right don’t even bother to remind our conservative friends, co-workers and neighbors to vote. We don’t even ask if they’re registered, let alone offer to drive them to a polling place during lunch break.
We’ve gotta do better, guys!
Scott Presler is the hardest working man in American politics right now. He’s going through all the six swing states and teaching local GOP volunteers how to harvest ballots. He’s completely on board the Trump Train again for 2024, and he’s doing more than anyone to pull out a victory, so that we don’t have a repeat of 2020.
Do you know what’s really gross? The RNC isn’t even paying Presler. Democrats pay drug addicts on the street who do anything on their behalf during elections, and Scott Presler isn’t even being paid. He’s doing most of it on his own dime. Someone just started a PAC to help fund Presler’s efforts.
