MARK FINCHEM Op-Ed: Democrats Want to Federalize Elections and Ignore the US Constitution

The importance of teaching the subject of American History is demonstrated in these times by the Democratic Party and their lust for more and more power. They seem to hate the very constitution that they took an oath to protect and defend; they justify their acts just like a medieval physician whose ineptness killed the patient in an effort to save him or her. Aside from the rampant fraud in voter rolls, now proven electronic tabulation equipment vulnerabilities, ballot stuffing, and the irredeemably compromised 2020 General Election, Democrats now seek to usurp the power and authority over all elections, and in so doing engage in a coup against both the Constitution and the People simultaneously.
