In the words of President John F. Kennedy, “The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all.”
We call for citizens in Michigan to meet personally with their state legislators to discuss election integrity issues. We believe it will be productive for individuals or small groups to engage them in discussion. Too many legislators who personally believe that the 2020 election was not secure, are nevertheless reluctant to take on the issue with forcefulness. This is often because they don’t know the arguments to use in deflecting the other side.
To that end we have prepared “Meet and Teach Talking Points for Legislators”. (see below)
They will provide the information and arguments you need to make the case that the 2020 election was definitely not secure or trustworthy in it’s results.
As Peggy Noonan, the speech writer for President Reagan once said, “Our political leaders will know our priorities only if we tell them, again and again, and if those priorities begin to show up in the polls.”
At the very least, our Republican legislators especially should support the absolute necessity for a full forensic audit in our state.
Consistent pressure and educating them with the facts of the 2020 election that they may have been reluctant to hear is necessary. We need to get them on board with commitment to meaningful election legislative reform. There also needs to be the creation of a widespread culture of insistence on the enforcement of election laws.
We believe in the power of persistence. As Benjamin Franklin once said, “Energy and persistence conquer all things.”
Michigan Citizens for Election Integrity firmly endorses the following: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead.
