GOP Wise Up: Midterm Elections Reveal Critical Difference Between “Ballots” and “Votes”

Back in 2018, I saw something happen that scared the crap out of me: Ballot Harvesting. It happened in California. Republicans were ahead in so many House races when I went to bed, and by the time I woke up the next morning, they had all lost. I was horrified and scared to death. I wrote a piece on “Ballot Harvesting,” and I warned everyone that this was a “trial run” and Dems would be using this tactic in the future… and two years later, thanks to the COVID pandemic that just happened to hit us at the “perfect time,” Dems were using “ballot harvesting” to install a decrepit, old, nasty buffoon into the White House.

And it all went down the same way that it did in California. People went to bed thinking Trump had won, and then overnight, everything changed.

I have said all along, Dems will do ANYTHING to hold onto power. Anything. And this Ballot Harvesting is a winner for them. It’s changed the game, actually.

Right now, so many clueless idiots are blaming President Trump for “underperforming” in the midterms, and I will admit, I was so bummed early in the morning yesterday, but my late morning, I was already over it, and looking at what happened without hyper-emotion. We actually did pretty damn well, considering the state of this county and the political polarization we’re dealing with. Was there a nationwide “red wave,” no. But that’s not Trump’s fault. It’s the ballots…

We still did really good. Don’t let the media and Dems gaslight you.

I read an article today from one of my favorite political bloggers, Sundance over at Conservative Treehouse, and he put it best when he said this: “Where votes were the focus, the Biden administration suffered losses. Where ballots were the focus, the Biden administration won.”

Guys, trust me, the media and Dems and the establishment want you to blame Trump. They don’t want you focused on ballot harvesting because the last thing they want is to see the right to use ballot harvesting to their own advantage.

If Trump were president, do you think that Chinese spy balloon would still be flying?(Required)

Here’s what Sundance wrote in this brilliant article:

As the political discussion centers on the 2022 wins and losses from the midterm election, one thing that stands out in similarity to the 2020 general election is the difference between ballots and votes.  It appears in some states this is the ‘new normal.’

Where votes were the focus, the Biden administration suffered losses.  Where ballots were the focus, the Biden administration won.

Perhaps the two states most reflective of ‘ballots’ being more important than ‘votes’ are Michigan and Pennsylvania.  Despite negative polling and public opinion toward two specific candidates in those states, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman achieved victories.

Whitmer and Fetterman were not campaigning for votes, that is old school. Instead, the machinery behind both candidates focused on the modern path. The Democrat machines in both states focused on ballot collection and ignored the irrelevant votes as cast.

Since the advent of ballot centric focus through mail-in and collection drop-off processes, votes have become increasingly less valuable amid the organizers who wish to control election outcomes.  As a direct and specific result, ballot collection has become the key to Democrat party success.

The effort to attain votes for candidates is less important than the strategy of collecting ballots.

It should be emphasized; these are two distinctly different election systems.

The system of ballot distribution and collection is far more susceptible to control than the traditional system of votes cast at precincts.

A vote cannot be cast by a person who is no longer alive, or no longer lives in the area.  However, a ballot can be sent, completed and returned regardless of the status of the initially attributed and/or registered individual.

While ballots and votes originate in two totally different processes, the end result of both “ballots” and “votes,” weighing on the presented election outcome, is identical.

While initially the ballot form of election control was tested in Deep Blue states, through the process of mail-in returns under the guise and justification of “expanding democracy,” a useful tool for those who are vested in the distinction, I think we are now starting to see what happens on a national level when the process is expanded.

The controversial 2020 election showed the result of making ‘ballots’ the strategy for electoral success.  Under the justification of COVID-19 mitigation, mail-in ballots took center stage.  Ballot harvesting by Democrat operations was one term for the outcome.

Democrat party officials and political activist groups knew how to exploit the opportunities within the new system of ballot distribution and collection, and when you combine that with a massive legal pressure campaign to accept any and all forms of ballots, well, you can see how they are dependent.

Now that ballot collection has been shown to be a much more effective way to maintain political power, Democrats in a general sense are less focused on winning votes and more focused on gathering ballots.

When ‘ballot organization’ becomes more important than ‘vote winning,’ you modify your electoral campaign approaches accordingly.  It might sound simplistic, but inside the distinct difference between ballots and votes you will find why refusing debates is a successful strategy.

Do me a favor, and read this entire piece. It’s really good, and you’ll start to understand this game that’s being played.
