If the 2020 election has you doubting whether or not we still live in a democratic society, fret not. Democracy is alive and well in America, even more so than you ever thought!
Count All the Votes
The candidate who receives the most votes (generally speaking) is the winner of the election, and All legal Votes Should Be Counted in the timeframe established by each state. Nobody would dispute that. Moreover, counting illegal votes in any election would destroy the integrity of the election. Everyone would, or should agree with that. But, the folks who have been crying for the past four years about ‘election integrity’ now all of a sudden desire that every vote be counted, no matter if they are legal votes or not. Every vote should be counted, but only every legal vote should be counted in order to have a fair election where confidence in the process is maintained and people are encouraged to participate in it.
Deep into election night, Donald Trump had a commanding lead on Joe Biden. In some states the lead was several hundred thousand votes with most precincts having already reported in. This was especially the case in the key coveted battleground states of PA, AZ, GA and MI. Then the counting stopped. By next morning leads were cut significantly, and as the days passed what looked like a runaway re-election was now a complete 180 in favor of the contender. What happened? Well, mail in ballots happened.
Never Let a Serious Crisis Go to Waste
The 2020 presidential election in the United States is a travesty because of the confusion and corruption associated with mail in ballots. Don’t be fooled though. The confusion and the corruption were planned months ago.
President Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Emanuel famously said the following in 2008,
“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. I mean, it’s an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.”
The serious crisis that landed in the Democrat’s lap after the final failed attempt to have President Trump removed from office via impeachment in early 2020 was COVID-19. And, in typical Rahm style, The Democrats, along with the media, seized upon this opportunity to begin a public and political campaign to expand support for mail in voting across the nation, especially in battleground states. The strategy was, the longer the lock-downs, the more the need for folks to be able to vote by mail.
Mail In Ballots, The Dark Horse in Any Election
It’s not that mail in voting can’t work, it’s just that mail-in ballots are the most vulnerable to being altered, stolen, or forged. Also, use of mail in ballots for voting has a higher rate of rejection than does in person voting (Spakovsky). Thus far (as of today), there have been numerous allegations, and in some cases documented examples, where mail in ballots were mishandled, processed improperly, tampered with, or altered in some way. Additionally, the rejection rate of mail in ballots in the count so far is significantly lower than what would be statistically expected, especially considering that many millions of Americans were voting via mail in ballot for the first time. In states that have what are now razor thin margins, disqualifying all illegal ballots could put this race back to where it was on election night in favor of Donald Trump.
The Harsh Reality
Do I think 76 million people voted for Joe Biden? No I do not. Do I think Donald Trump will somehow rally support to initiate multi state recounts? Maybe, but doubtful. Does America have the stomach to go through that? No. Should it enrage you that Democrats pulled off one of the biggest election heists in American history. Absolutely.
If mail in ballots were accepted and/or counted illegally, or if they were tampered with – then they shouldn’t be counted, period. If they were counted, and that’s how Joe Biden overcame huge deficits on election day then every American should be outraged! However, most aren’t.
The ‘alleged’ majority of our fellow citizens have been gloating on social media, and dancing in the streets, some even wearing full body, blue USPS mailbox costumes to flaunt the fact that Joe Biden has now been declared by most media outlets to have won because mail in ballots pushed him over the edge. The ‘alleged’ majority of Americans agree that it was ok to steal an election so long as media, big tech and celebrities told them it was OK just to get rid of ‘Orange Man Bad’.
In a democracy, the majority rules. Democracy is alive and well in America, allegedly.
