A couple weeks past the election and everyone is still wondering and worrying about who won. At some point, a winner will hopefully be confirmed, but we should be very concerned about the grave damage to our Republic. No matter how it turns out, about half the country will not be satisfied and likely furious. Politics is typically nasty and most losses are acutely disappointing, but when voters think the voting was hijacked by fraud and the election stolen, a loss becomes very bitter and perhaps intolerable and unacceptable.
At least until now, the citizens of the United States have enjoyed and preserved self-government. Per our illustrious Constitution, all power derives from “We The People.” That means every citizen is sovereign or independent holding sole power over their own individual liberty and welfare and only answer to God. The Declaration of Independence and Constitution recognize that all rights are granted by God not government. So government can only obtain authority to govern with consent from the individual citizens.
Therefore, if the people believe the election was not free and fair or stolen, they then face an incredibly vexing dilemma – how can we have a legitimate government without consent of the governed?! The present crushing conundrum is that regardless which way the election goes about half the nation will be convinced the election was stolen. We have already lived this the past four years because Democrats NEVER accepted the results of the 2016 election, but 2020 will be exponentially exacerbated! Congressman Jim Jordan points out the amazing hypocrisy that Democrats spent four years agonizing over the Russia hoax, but refuse to spend four weeks ensuring the accuracy of the 2020 election
Despite previously vowing not to declare victory before the results are final, Joe Biden has seized the media coronation and declared himself president-elect. He has made calls for unity, but he fails to condemn vicious BLM/ANTIFA violence against Trump supporters. And further, if Biden is certain he won, why are he and Democrats vehemently resisting recounts? Why doesn’t Biden cooperate and also seek transparency, so he can demonstrate to Republicans he won fairly?
The only possible foundation for unity is to prove the election was fair. Republicans would certainly not like it, but they would dutifully acquiesce like they did for President Obama. However, Democrats have consistently denied the 2016 results and told us all year they would never accept another Trump victory. Therein lies the cynicism of the Democrats’ sinister scheme. Their gambit to swipe this election is essentially a win either way. If they pull it off, they steal the presidency. If not, they have established their narrative for another four years of resisting Trump as an illegitimate president and they will surely impeach him again.
Democrat brazenness to indulge this demonstrable fraud stems from their confidence Republicans will never hold them accountable. No one has been held to account for spying on the Trump campaign or the covert efforts or essentially seditious acts to undermine the Trump Administration. Democrats and deep staters aided by their media henchmen believe they can engage in any deceit with impunity. This sad state of affairs will never end until the perpetrators are imprisoned for their crimes.
At this writing, the Trump Administration is compiling hundreds of affidavits of malfeasance and mountains of evidence of certain fraud. Hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots were manipulated or manufactured and many illegally counted and even counted twice. Most troubling are the “glitches” in Dominions Voting Systems (originally created for Hugo Chavez!) that always and only benefit Democrats. Growing evidence is showing untold thousands perhaps millions of votes were switched from Trump to Biden!
In this unquenchable lust for power and absence of any compunctions about purloining power, our Republic hangs in the balance. Extensive voter fraud is evident across many states, so it must be exposed and proven. However, if this electoral fraud is allowed to stand, how will voters ever have confidence in the integrity of another election? Will we ever have a fair election again? Republicans are simply demanding full transparency and that only every legal ballot be counted, but Democrats are sadly disinterested in transparency. Democrats covet power no matter the cost even if it sacrifices the Republic. They have no devotion to the Republic only to their own raw power.
Know this, Americans will never accept a fraudulent election. Pray that this fraud is rectified or our Republic is in serious jeopardy! Pray that God Almighty delivers America!
