If a place isn’t too far gone to start with, there’s reason for hope.
That’s what we’re now seeing in Kansas, with its legislative override of a gubernatorial veto on a law to ensure free and fair elections, following the similar measures in Georgia:
Kansas’ legislature has just overridden its governor’s veto and put into law a set of election reforms similar to those that just weeks ago [in Georgia, that] Joe Biden declared were “Jim Crow on steroids.”
Biden would know these laws are nothing like Jim Crow, if he still had all his mental faculties, because he was around for Jim Crow. Biden happily cavorted with segregationist Democrats when it suited him. And Jim Crow was a Democrat policy.
The legislation bans ballot-harvesting, prohibits electioneering in voting lines, bans private funds from being used to administer public elections (looking at you, Mark Zuckerberg), and prohibits the local secretary of state or governor from making emergency changes to election laws.
Those are all holes in election law that enabled the widespread election fraud in the 2020 election that brought us the odious Joe Biden, a doddering old fool who couldn’t even attract a crowd to his rallies, and since taking office has governed like a radical left-wing dictator without the charisma.
Georgia has enacted protective measures to ensure the easily done cheating and abuses don’t happen again. Now Kansas.
What’s noteworthy here is that the public support for these measures must be incandescent. A veto override is a big deal because it happens so very rarely. Legislators, obviously, were hearing a lot from voters, and being legislators, they’re always looking to save their skin. Polls show that the election law improvements enacted in Georgia were immensely popular with the public, giving their wobbly governor excellent cover to defend them without fear of the left. Odds now are the same in Kansas, which like Georgia, is a historically red state.
