Rep. Hice: ‘It’s either going to be socialism or freedom’ in Georgia runoff election

Rep. Jody Hice joined Sara Carter on the “Sara Carter Show” podcast Monday to discuss the importance of voting in the upcoming Senate race in Georgia and his feelings towards lawmakers that refuse to investigate election fraud.

As Hice spoke with Carter, he was making his way back to his home state of Georgia to persuade people to get out and vote.

“We’re just going to be talking with everyone we can about the importance of this and let’s make sure we turn out the vote and get a victory tomorrow,” Hice said.

Carter applauds his efforts and notes that this may be one of the most significant elections in modern American political history.

“The consequences are just so enormously high, that political philosophy that will direct our country is on the line with this election tomorrow. It’s either going to be socialism or freedom. And this goes far beyond two senators in Georgia, the direction of our country is at stake at this,” Hice said.

Carter mentioned that voters might have concerns of election fraud in the upcoming Senate election after what occurred during the presidential election.

“There is no doubt in my mind that President Trump won, and that he won big. And other Georgians feel that as well. And they’re upset. That being said, there are steps being made to try to minimize the fraud this go round, for example, there’s some 8000 additional eyes, and actually individuals on the ground to have observation and monitoring of the voting and the elections. And you know, whenever you have more eyes on the ground like that, you minimize the risk of fraud. And so hopefully, we’re not going to have as big of a problem,” Hice said.

He continued, “But the issue is socialism versus freedom. And we’ve got to get out to vote, the one with the most votes is going to win. So this is our hour, and it all is resting on the shoulders of Georgia at this point.”

Over the weekend, a conversation between Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and President Trump was leaked where Trump spoke to Raffensperger about the alleged election fraud in Georgia.

“The President was just simply urging [Raffensperger] to do really what is his duty and his responsibility to ensure election integrity,” Hice said.

“The President is confident as am I and millions of others that if the Secretary of State will do that, it will be found that the President in fact won Georgia, and I believe he won, I believe he won big in Georgia.”

He continued, “We need the Secretary of State to show leadership and to do what he needs to do and have some serious investigations. And I believe the evidence will in fact prove that President Trump won Georgia. And that was all that the President was asking for. He’s totally appropriate in doing so.”

Hice is critical of Raffenensperger and any lawmaker who refuses to investigate the election fraud and said they do not deserve to hold a position in office.

“It is inexcusable and I don’t believe an individual like that should we even be an office,” Hice said. “If we lose the integrity of our elections, in this country, we lose our Republic, we lose the voice of the people to speak as to who is going to lead our country and make decisions.”

He continued, “It is incumbent, it is necessary, for the elected officials to take a stand to investigate those allegations and to ensure to the American people that our election system is in fact secure in every way. And for anyone, both sides of the aisle, Democrat and Republican, there should be unity on both sides of the aisle to ensure that our elections are secure in every way. For anyone not to do that is just extremely offensive and inexcusable to me.”

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
