August 2020 Newsletter

Cabarrus Republicans,

I for one am tired of tiptoeing around asking if anyone in your family has had Covid. The odds are in your favor that you have not and most people can only name one or two people that have caught the virus that they know personally. Plus, where I come from, we ask everyone how they are doing every time we see them. We may even ask how their mom is doing as well!

If you don’t want to see our way of life completely eroded, then you cannot sit this election out and you must get as fired up as I!!!!! The Democrats are enjoying taking away our way of life and our way of campaigning. They are enjoying taking away our fellowship and loved telling us we couldn’t go to church and patronize our favorite businesses and restaurants. Notice when people start finding work arounds, they create new rules and executive orders! Honestly, I am tired of it and I am ready to take the fight to them! They want you to believe that the world is collapsing around you and the media is complicit in their scheme. Why you ask, Presidential incumbents often do not fare well when the “misery index” is high.

So, this is my plea, 1) make a pledge right now to vote either absentee, early, or on election day. There are ZERO excuses for not voting with all these opportunities available. 2) make a pledge to make 6 friends accountable just like I am making you accountable. Tell them about the most important races on the ballot, the State Legislative races and the Judge races…more on that later. 3) Volunteer to help the party out. It doesn’t matter if it is 30 minutes or 30 hours, the party needs YOU. See the volunteer section below for more information.

We hear all the time about this being the most important election of our lifetime and I cannot restate that enough here. There are 10 races that are even more important than normal. Your two State Legislative seats and the eight judge seats. We must ensure Republican victories in those 10 seats. We want a clean sweep; but those are by far the MOST important. The Legislature will be tasked with post census redistricting next summer and Democrats in charge of redistricting could result in 10 years of Democrat control of everything in North Carolina. Notice they have gone silent on a non-partisan redistricting commission lately, that is because they think they are going to win and the redistricting commission is no longer good for them!

Once again here is the link for the statewide candidates and the judges so you may share with your friends: https://www.nc.gop/candidates

Absentee and voter Registration Information
Many people may have never voted absentee and are looking for instruction on exactly how it works. If you are sitting on the fence of absentee vs in-person voting, go-ahead and request and absentee form. You can always vote in-person and simply destroy your absentee ballot. PLEASE DO NOT VOTE BOTH AS THAT IS THE VERY VOTER FRAUD WE ARE FIGHTING AS A PARTY!

The link below will take you to the form that must be completed and returned to the Board of Elections. Many of your questions will be answered directly on the form and it is self-explanatory.
