Josef Stalin is purported to have said: “I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this — who will count the votes, and how.”
George Soros understood this and took it to heart. He started the “Secretary of State Project” in 2006. After John Kerry lost Ohio.
The Secretary of State Project originated due to the culmination of frustration, anger, bitterness and overall resentment Democrats felt towards Republicans in the wake of President George W. Bush’s re-election in 2004. Still plagued with memories of Katherine Harris and Florida from the 2000 presidential contest, Democrats placed the blame for Senator John Kerry’s loss squarely on the head of former Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell, who ruled that provisional ballots in the state would not be counted if they were submitted in the wrong precinct, a decision upheld by the United States Court of Appeals. Bush’s victory in the state – a relatively slim 118,000+ votes – gave him the necessary electoral votes (twenty) to cross the victory threshold of two hundred and seventy.https://ballotpedia.org/Secretary_of_State_Project
The Secretary of State, Ken Blackwell, insisted that the laws of the state which were passed by the State Legislature be followed. The Supreme Court concurred, and Kerry lost.
So the push was on to find more “malleable” Secretaries of State and use them to stop the “voter suppression” in those states*
In this election we saw Secretaries of State such as Georgia’s Brad Raffensperger, who even after seeing the huge cluster@%#$ that was the Georgia presidential election, he still allowed unlimited mail-in ballots, drop boxes, ballot harvesting and Dominion voting machines in the special election for the Senate.
I think now is the time for Donald Trump to focus on the little-followed Secretary of State races and campaign for the most MAGA person running. One who will uphold the rule of law, has a spine and doesn’t worry about political pressure.
We discovered in this election, that it really doesn’t matter who votes. It matters who counts the votes. 75 million voters were disenfranchised, and the curtain has been pulled back from the whole corrupt process.
* “Voter suppression” meaning easy to understand, common sense rules and regulations to prevent voter fraud and provide consistency and fairness to the election.
