My adopted home state of Nevada just went all blue. Nevada offers lessons for the entire national GOP for what happens when you allow illegal aliens to vote in your state.
There is no election integrity in Nevada. That’s a nice way of saying I believe voter fraud is rampant.
Problem #1. Illegal aliens legally get driver’s licenses in Nevada.
Problem #2. Anyone can register to vote at DMV without proving citizenship.
You think maybe that powerful one-two combination might lead to illegal aliens voting in large numbers?
I had a conversation recently with Bill Cunningham, conservative talk radio superstar and one of my heroes.
Bill pinpointed one of the big reasons the Ohio GOP swept virtually every office up and down the ballot in November’s midterm election, while the Nevada GOP lost virtually every race up and down the ballot.
One obvious answer was conservative talk radio. The GOP candidates in Ohio embraced it, while the Nevada GOP candidates ignored it.
In Ohio, the GOP candidates were not only guests nonstop on Bill’s popular show, they bought large advertising campaigns too. No one listening to conservative talk radio in Ohio could possibly miss the branding or the GOP message.
Not so in Nevada. The “brilliant” GOP consultants in Nevada ran away from conservative talk radio like it was the plague. The GOP consultants in Nevada didn’t allow their candidates to be interviewed as guests on conservative talk radio- for fear their words might be used against them. I’m not kidding. GOP consultants were afraid to let their candidates do an interview.
Worse, these same GOP consultants spent literally close to nothing on advertising, to their main base of voters. Smart!
But that wasn’t the end of my conversation with Bill Cunningham. Part II is the biggest reason for the GOP defeat in Nevada. In Ohio, it’s almost impossible for illegal aliens to vote. In Nevada, it’s easy.
In Nevada, anyone can get a driver’s license. Nevada is one of twelve states that issue driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. And once at DMV to collect their license, any illegal alien can register to vote without ever proving citizenship. Instantly non-citizens are legally registered to vote in Nevada elections.
In Ohio, illegals can’t get drivers licenses. And no one in Ohio can get a driver’s license without a passport or birth certificate. Both of course prove you’re an American citizen. Then to vote, you must show your driver’s license.
There it is. In Ohio it’s almost impossible to vote if you’re a non-citizen. In Nevada, you can. Liberals claim there is no “voter fraud.” Well there’s not. It’s actually “registration fraud.” And it’s easy and basically legal.
There are many steps the Nevada GOP can take between now and 2020 to win elections. We need fresh leadership with creative ideas. We need to recruit better candidates with more energy and personality. And we certainly need to make conservative talk radio the centerpiece of GOP campaigns to sell GOP candidates. Liberals have the mainstream media, Hollywood and Silicon Valley. Conservatives have only one medium to communicate: talk radio. Why wouldn’t we use it?
All of this would help. But none of it will win a single election, if we don’t fix the problem of voter fraud/registration fraud.
Let Nevada serve as a lesson to the GOP across this nation, from sea to shining sea.
I can hear the liberals howling right now. “There is no voter fraud. We’d never do such a thing.” California disproves that storyline. California proves liberals will do anything to win elections.
California liberals just stole Orange County with “Ballot Harvesting.” In the days after the election, Democrats handed in 250,000 late ballots that they “legally” harvested. Meaning they walked door to door and helped Democrat voters fill out ballots on the spot, then handed them in. Voila. Instant voting by handing your ballot to a stranger.
Will that stranger check if you’re a legal citizen? Of course not.
Will they throw your ballot in the garbage if you vote Republican? Of course they will.
Did the voters even fill out the ballot? Or were they asked by Democrat volunteers to “Just sign your name and we’ll do all the rest.” Then they checked off a straight Democrat ticket on 250,000 ballots. What would stop them? The honor system? You’re joking right. Because if you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you in Vegas.
Or maybe they never went door to door at all. Maybe they just made up 250,000 fake ballots sitting in a windowless Democrat campaign building.
This is why “Vote Harvesting” is such voter fraud its illegal across the country- except in California.
Six Orange County GOP Congressional candidates led on election night, only to lose many days later, when Democrats flooded the market with 250,000 ballots.
And getting out our GOP voters is meaningless if you allow fraud like this. Orange County Republicans turned out in record numbers and still lost every single Congressional seat. In one district 120% of Democrats voted- that’s when you count these “Vote Harvested” ballots. Since 120% voter participation is impossible, it sure sounds like voter fraud.
Democrats didn’t “ballot harvest” in Nevada. They found other ways to win. It’s called “registration fraud.” They allowed and encouraged illegal aliens to register to vote by the tens of thousands at DMV, at the same time they’re getting their drivers license. Those tens of thousands of illegal voter registrations provided the margin of victory for Democrats in Nevada.
This is a lesson for the entire nation. Whoever counts the votes, wins elections.
