Democrats are nervous about the mid-term elections in 2022, and they have good reason.

Their destructive, far-left policies under Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are alienating millions of voters who expected a far more moderate agenda.

In the first 100 days of his administration, Joe Biden has created a humanitarian and lawless disaster at the border, pushed the abortion and LGBTQ agendas to the max, threatened religious liberty, expanded government dependency, spent trillions and restored Barack Obama’s “lead from behind” foreign policy that gives aid and comfort to our enemies.

People are beginning to notice.

That’s why the Dems are talking about “packing” the Supreme Court, creating two new states (D.C. and Puerto Rico), and trying to enact the absurdly named “For the People Act.” That legislation (H.R. 1) destroys state voter ID laws, impairs efforts to keep voter rolls clean, expands early voting and no-ID absentee voting, mandates automatic registration and essentially federalizes elections. It would be more accurately titled the “Democrat Incumbent Protection Racket Act.”

So-called progressives are desperate to make vote fraud even easier than it was in 2020, when governors and election boards violated the Constitution by changing the rules while tens of millions of mail-in ballots were filed and courts refused to see evidence in fraud cases.

Opponents of this latest egregious campaign to undermine election integrity are falsely painted as racists and “white supremacists.” For examples, see news stories about Georgia’s sensible, recently enacted voting law, over which “woke” corporate opponents drove the 2021 MLB All-Star Game out of Atlanta.

Even with a stunning number of irregularities and anomalies, the GOP in 2020 managed to flip at least 12 House seats, increase the party’s grip on a majority of state legislatures, and keep its advantage in governorships. Makes you wonder how Joe Biden could possibly have managed to outpoll President Trump by 6 million votes.

With a public soured by the Biden/Harris/Schumer/Pelosi power grab, the Democrats are desperate to prevent further GOP gains.

What can we do to restore confidence in fair elections?

And, what actions will be most effective in ensuring that we can reverse the damage now being inflicted so that we can bequeath a self-governing America to our children and grandchildren?

Michele Bachmann is the author of “Core of Conviction: My Story” (2011).

Michele Bachmann was born in Waterloo, Iowa. She received a B.A. in Political Science and English from Winona State University in 1978.

In 2000, Bachmann defeated a longtime moderate incumbent for a state senate seat in Minnesota. In 2006, Bachmann entered the race to represent her suburban Minneapolis congressional district. She won 52 percent of the vote, becoming the first Republican woman from Minnesota elected to the House of Representatives. She easily won reelection in 2008 and 2010.

During the Obama administration, she became a leader of the conservative resistance.

In 1986, Bachmann received a Juris Doctor degree from Oral Roberts University. She was a member of the ORU law school’s final graduating class, and was part of a group of faculty, staff, and students who moved the ORU law school library to Regent University. Two years later, she completed a Master of Law in taxation at the College of William & Mary. She worked for four years as a lawyer for the Internal Revenue Service’s Office of Chief Counsel in St. Paul, Minnesota.

She is married to Marcus Bachmann, a clinical therapist who holds a master’s degree from Regent University. They have five children, and also worked with a private foster care agency to house 23 children in their home during the 1990s. The Bachmanns’ children were home schooled and also attended private Christian schools, and her political career initially stemmed from her interest in education reform.

Michele Bachmann’s extensive career highlights include:

– First Republican woman from Minnesota elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.

– United States Congresswoman representing Minnesota’s 6th District from 2007 to 2015.

– National figure in the Republican Party and a founding member of the congressional Tea Party Caucus.

– In 2011, Bachmann announced her bid for the Republican presidential nomination and ran for president in 2012.
