Alas, Mr. President, it is time to do the right thing. There is a time honored tradition in the United States, and you are not exempt. Exit stage right, and do so with grace and dignity. Please.
To be clear, just today I signed a petition for a recount in several battleground states. Do I think this was a clean election? No. Do I think voter fraud is a clear and present danger? Yes. But do I think there was such rampant fraud that SCOTUS (because that is where all roads would lead) would have enough evidence to declare the election results null and void? No.
These blue states need to get their acts together. Allowing ballots to be postmarked up until election day is a sham. Closing ballot stations off and counting ballots in secret is appalling. Ballots should be received by election day, full stop. Election day is election day. By the next morning, there should be a winner and a loser. This isn’t rocket science. Pennsylvania set itself up to be a laughing stock and it did not fail in achieving that outcome.
All eyes are (or should be) on Georgia. My guess is that we will see hundreds of millions of dollars poured into what appears will be two US Senate run-off elections. On the outcome of those races hangs the balance of power. On the outcome of those races hangs the only hope for checks and balances in the next several (well, two, for sure) years.
The Democrats will stop at nothing to achieve a 50-50 split in the Senate, so Vice President elect Kamala Harris can swoop in and break all tie votes. Folks, if the GOP doesn’t hold the Senate, Katy bar the door!
Let’s just reflect for a moment on what an actual blue wave will do to this country. In short, we will witness an all out effort to 1) re-regulate American business, 2) eliminate right to work states, 3) impose higher personal and corporate taxes, while restoring tax breaks to all blue states-oh, the irony- 4) eliminate the presently favorable death tax structure, 5) resurrect the Paris climate accord, 6) destroy energy independence by attacking fossil fuel exploration and development, 7) attack the men and women in blue, 8) re-engage with Iran, 9) make Palestinian agreement a prerequisite to any further Middle-Eastern peace agreements, 10) “pack” the court, 11) add DC and Puerto rico as states, and 12) generally attack our entire history and all that has made this a great country. I kid you not. They do not like us.
Let me be clear, lest someone attack me for saying “they do not like us”. “Us” is every hard working American who believes in equal opportunity and not guaranteed outcome. “Us” is white, black, brown, purple, I don’t care. “Us” is straight, gay, LGBTQ, I don’t care. “Us” is us. OK?
Let’s also hone in on my points above. I am not worried about Mr. Biden. And that is the point, see? Mr. Biden has little chance of being a strong leader. He is surrounded by power hungry haters; people whose entire careers have been predicated on sowing seeds of racial and economic division. And therein lies the irony. They successfully ran a campaign based on one thing; their detestation of Donald Trump. They said he is a racist. They said he is the most divisive President in US history. As my mother used to say, “Well if that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black!” The entire progressive movement is based on sowing seeds of anger, discontent, jealousy, and divisiveness. It is alarming, and it is shameful.
So no, this election is not over. it’s now very much centered in Georgia. But for you, Mr. President, it is over. We know you don’t like it. We know you believe you were cheated. Its just not going to come out that way in the wash. When all is said and done, the result will be what we know it to be today. So it’s time to go, and I’ll say it again; it’s time to go with grace and dignity. Please.
