I Was Just Thinking…

“Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.”                                                                                                             (William Shakespeare)    

   Stop complaining and shut up. You don’t know what you’re talking about as they shout at those they want to control like little sheep, demanding blind acceptance of the election results as if there weren’t any irregularities. Yet there was something amiss and it is now being investigated. It may not alter the results of the election, but if vital questions aren’t answered, Americans will never believe in our election process ever again.

   Voter-fraud allegations must not be summarily dismissed by the press and by those who benefit from such possible skullduggery. Americans are concerned that something is rotten, something doesn’t pass the smell test. Were ballots tampered with? Were fraudulent ballots added? Did dead people vote? Were ballot signatures matched?

   “President Trump is 100 percent within his rights to look into allegations of irregularities and weigh his options,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “If Democrats feel confident they have not occurred, they should have no reason to fear any extra scrutiny,” and he concluded by saying that, “The president has every right to look into allegations, and request recounts under the law.”

   It’s funny that everything else we do in America we need an ID. I was in my credit union office the other day depositing checks into my own account which were issued in my name. Guess what? I had to show the teller my license.

   I say vote in person. I say one vote for one American who has been identified in positive fashion. I say allow for absentee ballots accompanied with positive identification. If mass mailings are to continue, we need safeguards to prevent fraud. Ballot harvesting should be illegal everywhere.     

   I get it. People hate President Trump. They say he is an autocrat, a racist, xenophobic, a liar, he’s everything under the sun. On his first day in office, his enemies started their crusade against him, their mission to destroy him. They cursed when they saw him, heard him speak. How could anyone support such a man?

   Personally, I consider  much of this discomfort to be classic psychological projection, a “defense mechanism (introduced to psychology by Sigmund Freud) in which the ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves by attributing them to others.”

   But I digress. 

   So, Trump Derangement Syndrome reached fever pitch in 2020. He couldn’t win again. We can’t take another four years of this. Enter those who might consider any avenue to drive down to win the election.

Pollsters pummeled the public with dubious polling results.

Mainstream media crucified Trump.

   Big Tech censored what they called misinformation.

   Ballots were tampered with.

   All forms of voter suppression which influenced the election in a dangerous manner.

   All bias, no hiding this fact, no need to do so anymore.

   But who cares about that?  

   We needed to get rid of that monster in the White House.

   Even if it meant destroying faith in our democracy in the process.
