“This election year, our team is working overtime to ‘break the code words’ politicians use to try to fool voters,” says iVoterGuide president

TUPELO, Miss. — Despite the General Election taking place in only a few weeks, many voters are still struggling to figure out who to vote for amidst the constantly changing political landscape. With so many mixed messages from both major parties, how are voters supposed to figure out which candidate reflects their personal values?
iVoterGuide (ivoterguide.com), the nation’s premier Christian voting guide, is designed to help take the guesswork out of choosing a candidate. By deciphering the political messages and providing clear, constructive information regarding most political candidates, iVoterGuide equips and empowers American voters to make the best decisions for themselves and the future of the country.
Debbie Wuthnow, president of iVoterGuide (ivoterguide.com), understands the confusion voters can have when it comes to understanding political policies and is ready with the rest of the iVoterGuide team to help “break the code.”
“Words can be used to clarify, but they can also be used to ‘spin’ or distort ideas or messages,” Wuthnow stated. “Part of iVoterGuide’s mission is to clarify issues when politicians try to distort them. This election year, our team is working overtime to ‘break the code words’ politicians use to try to fool voters. We’ve seen just this year how easily words can be abused. Political spin is one of the many reasons we need clarity and factual accuracy in elections.
“For example, one of the ‘codes’ we are fighting that twists the truth and deceives voters into voting against their own beliefs is ‘expanding voting rights.’ The translation? They are enabling ineligible voters to vote. This deliberately makes election fraud difficult to detect, difficult to investigate, and difficult to prosecute effectively.”
Wuthnow continued, “The following are some examples of this dangerous code in action: stopping the cleaning up of voter rolls, expanding automatic voter registration and early voting, introducing same-day voter registration, allowing online voter registration and absentee ballot requests, letting voters opt-in to automatic mail-in ballots, pre-registration of minors as young as 16, not requiring any official photo ID to vote, and more.
“As you’ll notice, all of these proposals disproportionately benefit the Left, since they would have a greater impact in highly concentrated urban areas which always vote more liberal and many of these measures would also incentivize inexperienced, low-information voters who are more likely influenced by the mainstream media. We must elect leaders who will recognize the threat and the lie of ‘expanding voter rights’ and stand up to those proposing this nonsense.”
Wuthnow explained, “Another ‘code’ we aim to break is the idea of environmental, economic, racial, or social ‘justice.’ What this actually means is the forced redistribution of wealth, property, and income from ‘oppressor’ groups to favored ‘oppressed’ groups, usually funded by higher taxes on the ‘oppressor’ groups.
“Many candidates are using these code words to support policies or platforms that amount to socialism. These terms are usually just an excuse to offer handouts in an attempt to earn minority votes, appease the ‘politically correct’ police and generally sow division. Voters must be aware of the politicians willing to play these games so they can vote for candidates who will not cave to the pressure.
“However, the people have the power to be codebreakers and vote for the candidates who truly represent their ideals. By arming ourselves with facts and testing those facts against prayerful reflection and biblical values, we can be assured that we have made informed choices and carried out our duty, regardless of the outcome. Americans with traditional, faith-based values need to know which candidates are going to stand up to those who utilize these bizarre codes and help uncover the truth.”
