In response to the draft and the Vietnam War, America passed the 26th Amendment. The thought was if you are old enough to be drafted, you are old enough to vote. However, today California Democrats have exposed that their attempts to allow 17-year-olds to vote are not for the noble reasons of the 26th Amendment but cynical attempts to get more Democrat votes.Read more
A major piece of news happened yesterday, or at least it should be news. Foreign actors have changed ZERO votes on American voting machines. The Committee on House Administration held a hearing entitled: 2020 Election Security-Perspectives From Voting System Vendors and Experts. In a panel of the three manufacturers of virtually all the voting machines in the United States, the following exchange happened (emphasis added):
Ranking Member Rodney Davis (R-IL): To your knowledge, has a foreign state ever successfully breached or hacked your vote tallying election machines?
Mr. Tom Burt, President and CEO, Election Systems & Software, Omaha, NE: No
Mr. John Poulos, President and CEO, Dominion Voting Systems, Denver, CO: No
Ms. Julie Mathis, President and CEO, Hart InterCivic, Austin, TX: NoRead more
Despite Virginia's status as a solidly blue state, a recent poll reported that Virginia’s Presidential election next year may be close, with President Trump narrowly beating all Democratic Party presidential candidates but one. President Trump is only behind Joe Biden, and he is within the margin of error in a race with Biden. How do some Democrats in Virginia respond to news of President Trump becoming competitive in the blue state of Virginia?

While the Left continues to push the narrative that our elections are under attack by foreign actors, fraud and malfeasance are actually happening here at home.

After the hotly contested election in 2000, Republicans and Democrats came together to pass the bipartisan Help America Vote Act ("HAVA"). HAVA was a response to the chaos of the 2000 Florida recount. HAVA was not perfect but it represented a good faith effort on all sides to come together and passed 357-48 in the House and 92-2 in the Senate. This should be the way all election reform is done. Unfortunately, it is not true anymore.Read more
RNLA Vice President for Communications Harmeet Dhillon published an op-ed on Fox Opinion today titled "Democrat Stacey Abrams' sore-loser example is the wrong message for America":
But even [Hillary] Clinton – who conceded her loss to Trump – looks like a good sport compared to Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams, who lost the 2018 gubernatorial election but remains in raging denial of reality. . . . Abrams has never conceded – instead, she proffers wild conspiracy theories about how the election was “rigged,” even as she admits to The New York Times: “I have no empirical evidence that I would have achieved a higher number of votes.”Read more
Starting this year, thousands of teenagers in Colorado are now eligible to vote at the age of 17. The “Colorado Votes Act” allows 17-year-olds to vote in primary elections as long as they’ll turn 18 by the general election.
While Democrats masked this initiative in the name of youth civic engagement, their true intentions are to gain a political advantage and it could not be more obvious.Read more
On Monday, the Committee on House Administration's Election Subcommittee held a hearing in Florida on “Voting Rights and Election Administration.”
Democrats intentionally stacked the panel full of liberal congressional members and witnesses in order to outnumber Republican representation and stifle our perspective from being heard.
While Congressman Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) was the only Republican member and Logan Churchwell (Public Interest Legal Foundation) served as the only Republican witness, they stood their ground and spoke the truth.Read more
