You are probably seeing a lot of back and forth on social media. Your Republican friends are posting about the unbelievable voter fraud that is coming more and more to light after such a tight election. Your Democrat friends are saying those friends are nuts, and our election process is all above board. Of course, those friends also just spent the last four years proclaiming the 2016 election results a fraud, but never mind that for now. The truth is that they are all right.
There are two major political parties in the United States and they have a stranglehold over the power in this country. They keep that power by making sure that the general population is forced to pick a side based on silly issues they have no intentions of addressing so that the general population never realizes that they could band together and vote to reject the one-party two-party system. In the meantime, they do have a great rivalry. They will do anything to win.
Did you hear that?
They will do anything to win.
There is no moral high ground to be taken here. Democrats have measures in place to fix this thing if they can. If it’s close, those out in the local levels know if you can get one or two here or there, that’s what you do. Republicans have the same measures in place. Real politicians on the national level are very much aware of this. It’s part of the game. It’s like getting in a cheap shot in a pile-up on the football field. Everybody does it, and everybody acts indignant if you ask them about it. That’s the way the game is played.
So, Republicans are dismayed that their cherished political election process to come to this. Truth is, it always does, or at least it does when it’s close enough to matter. Most states are lopsided, so going out of your way to commit voter fraud is mostly useless. But there are states where it gets close, and the local officials know what to do if the opportunity presents itself.
It has nothing to do with party. They both do it. But it should make you think a little harder about some of the lesser known things you vote for on the ballot. You may think a person over election matters is pretty mundane, but that person can end up swinging an election if it gets close enough. We saw it in 2000 for sure, and we are seeing in 2020 also. Most elections it’s not worth mentioning or doing. This time was different. The fix was in, and the only way Donald Trump could overcome it was to have such a lead that the fix could not overcome it. That did not happen this time.
Is it unfair? You bet. It may have been more unfair to the Donald than it ever has been. Why? The one-party two-party system strikes again. Notice how Republicans were eager to say the election is pristine and Trump is crazy to question it. That’s because this wasn’t rigged by Democrats. This was rigged by the establishment.
Donald Trump hijacked the Republican Party in 2016. Remember the early months. The Republicans had a super-majority, but he couldn’t get anything done. Republicans rejected Trump just as much as Democrats. They changed this behavior as they began to realize their own tails were on the line. With time, they rallied around the President, but not really. Not with any real emotion.
There were many Republicans that enjoyed this moment when Trump lost. They know there was fraud. They don’t care. Leave it alone lest it come back to bite you next time. Now they have Joe Biden as President shortly. Joe Biden is the establishment. He will not meet nowhere near the resistance that Trump received from his enemies, his own party, and the media.
Is it right? That’s not for the CSC to decide. But we’re just letting you know, voter fraud is real, it happens every time, and everyone in Washington knows about it.
The only one surprised is maybe Donald Trump.
He can fight it, but ultimately this is part of the game and the stranglehold of power, and when it all comes down, the establishment is going to win. They always do, although they had to wait a little longer this time than they are accustomed to.
It will be a long time before either political party lets someone entertain the idea of hijacking them again. They will make sure of it. In the meantime, Donald Trump is looking at a couple of months as the lamest of ducks because even his own party is rejecting him. His best bet is to start looking out for his own reputation and post-Presidency aspirations and leave the establishment to do what it does. Only the American people can reject the establishment for real, and that day is still many years in the future if this election cycle is any indication.
