I woke up this morning to find that overnight (at about 4 am) Georgia, a state President Trump had to must win to wend his way through the tiny window now open to his re-election (Arizona, Alaska, Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania) had flipped to the Biden side with a less than a thousand vote edge to the ex-VP. This now makes three crucial states (the others being Wisconsin and Michigan) that switched leads in the dead of night…possibly a coincidence, but not a good look for Democrats, or the nation.
Of course this is substantially the result of mail-in ballots, which the Democrats championed. Anyone capable of thought could figure out that the system was a recipe for fraud, manipulation and chaos, so it is basic logic to presume that this is what the Democrats (and their allies, the news media) wanted. As I have read in maybe ten places this morning alone, the longer and more convoluted a process is, the easier it is to rig it. That is true.
See the tweet above? It appears that Democrats in Georgia organized to “get out the vote” after the election. Maybe there’s an innocent explanation, but 1) you can’t blame people for being alarmed 2) there are no such tweets from the Republicans.
This tweet is from a Republican, though, the chair of the GOP in Georgia:
Again, maybe nothing was amiss, but that’s no way to engender trust in a vote count, especially one that goes blue at 4 am. Here is another tweet from Mr. Shafer:
This, of course, is what’s so convenient about mail-in ballots….this, and the fact that you can just throw the ones you don’t like away. And that you can just fill in someone else’s ballot for him or her in exchange for a fee. Or get a vote from someone who has no idea what he or she is voting for, but a helpful Democrat neighbor helped the poor dear fill out the ballot. Well, a lot is convenient about this method of voting, if you see democracy as a game for chumps.
Concludes blogger Tom McKnight, who was also musing about Georgia,
[W]hen all of these ballots are seemingly “found” and invariably fall in favor of the Democrat—and that’s not unique to this year, either—you have to forgive people for being skeptical. I mean, statistically, at least some of those should [have] broken in favor of Republicans, yet they never do. Like ever….At the end of the day, we’re all seeing some funny things, so yeah, we’re skeptical when we’re told to ignore our lying eyes. Especially when absentee ballots have simply made fraud that much more simple. The truth is that fraud is much too easy in our system….
So yeah, many on the right aren’t very trusting right now. Frankly, they shouldn’t be. Regardless, the left will hide behind claims of conspiracy theories and the right won’t trust any Democrat win for the next half a century.
This is damn sure not going to do much to unify our nation, now will it?
On that, we should all be able to agree.
