The topic of discussion for this Constitution Monday is the chaos known as the 2020 presidential election. In an ordinary presidential election, Americans would cast their votes either by mail or in person, the votes would be counted, and Americans would have a good idea as to who won the election by midnight. This did not happen in 2020!
Just like the rest of the year, the
2020 presidential election took some unwanted, possibly illegal, hops. Some
states sent ballots to every registered voter in their records. It did not
matter if the voter had moved out of state, moved to a different address, or
died. A ballot was sent to them without any accountability.
On election night, President Donald
Trump was well on his way to winning re-election by large margins when several
key states stopped counting ballots. They just stopped for several hours! This
has never happened previously in any election of which I am aware. When the
states started to count ballots again, Joe Biden was suddenly thousands and
hundreds of thousands of votes in the lead.
It is difficult to know what to
believe because there are so many versions out on the internet, but this is the
version I heard last. Top attorneys for Trump claim that evidence of voter
fraud is coming into their offices faster than they can take the information
down. They also claim to have evidence enough to send people to prison. A computer,
owned by a company in Spain but located in Frankfurt, Germany, was confiscated
by an elite Army team sent from the United States. This computer held all the
information from the election. There are claims that evidence shows hundreds of
thousands, if not millions, of votes being transferred from Trump to Biden. The
computer is also evidence of tampering in a U.S. election by foreign nations.
This information appears to be
supported by known results. There was no “blue wave” as forecast by pollsters. We
know that it did not happen because the election is so close. We know that Republicans
flipped three blue state legislatures to red. The last count I heard is that
Republicans flipped twelve seats in the House of Representatives from blue to
red. Republicans still hold control of the Senate.
Approximately 72,000,000 votes were cast
for Donald Trump, the highest number that has ever been cast for an incumbent
president or a Republican candidate. Higher percentages of black and Hispanic voters
cast their votes for Trump than in any previous year. With all this happening,
how did feeble-bodied, senile-minded, basement-dwelling Biden receive more votes
than Barack Obama in his glory days? Things just do not add up to a Biden win.
There are investigations taking place in
about six states. Investigators have until mid-December to discover what
happened. However, this much we know because it is outlined in the
Constitution: If the states cannot certify their vote totals, they cannot seat
Electoral College electors. If the Electoral College cannot vote -- or if the
Supreme Court rules the election null and void because of voter fraud – the election
of the next President will be determined by the House of Representatives. This
will all be determined by how the Justices on the Supreme Court view the
evidence that is presented.
If the election goes to the House of
Representatives, each state will have one vote. Twenty-six of the fifty states are
Republican-controlled with twenty-four being Democrat-controlled. It is likely
that the House of Representatives will re-elect Donald Trump in this case. Meanwhile,
Americans are asked to stay calm and be patient.
