Obama judge strikes down parts of Florida's voting laws

Published in Blog on April 01, 2022 by Article V Patriot

Who should decide how Florida runs its elections?

For most freedom-loving Americans, the answer is obvious: Floridians.

But the federal government has other ideas. A federal judge appointed by Barack Obama in 2012 just struck down portions of Florida's election laws and implied that those laws are racist.

“This Court finds that the Legislature enacted some of SB 90’s provisions with the intent to discriminate against Black voters,” wrote Judge Mark E. Walker of Federal District Court in Tallahassee. He opined, “There are those who suggest that we live in a post-racial society. … But that is simply not so.”

Specifically, judge Walker ruled that local campaign officials may not enforce the following in Florida's election law:

  • A provision that limited the use of ballot drop boxes to early voting hours, unless they’re in a supervisor’s office, and required the boxes to be manned at all times;
  • A requirement that third-party groups issue a warning when trying to register voters, including telling voters that their registration application might not be turned in before the voter registration deadline or within the required 14 days.
  • A provision that changed the rules around the “no-solicitation zone” around a polling site to prohibit “any activity with the intent to influence or effect of influencing a voter.”

The federal government would like nothing more than to take over all elections in our country. That's why they've introduced overreaching legislation disguised as "voting rights" protections, and that's why officials like judge Walker seek at every turn to overturn state election laws. 

We won't end this threat by voting in the "right" Washington politicians. Even the ones who aren't corrupted by The Swamp don't hold enough power or influence to change the way D.C. operates and balance power between the states and the feds.

Here's the good news: our Founders predicted this might happen. They included in Article V of the Constitution a provision that can effectively and permanently limit federal power.

Under this provision, the states can call a Convention of States to propose constitutional amendments. Under the Convention of States Resolution, these amendments can do three things:

  1. Limit the power and jurisdiction of the entire federal government, including the courts.
  2. Mandate term limits for all federal officials, including judges.
  3. Impose fiscal restraints on Congress so the federal government will have no way to fund its useless and overreaching government programs.

Over five million patriots have voiced their support and 19 states are on board. Will you join them? These men and women understand that only a Convention of States can rebalance power between the states and Washington, and only a Convention of States can end the threat of government overreach -- once and for all.

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
