(Nov. 26, 2020) — This is what I’ve been hearing practically every day from a variety of sources, mostly Republican congressmen and others who identify as Republicans, and “conservative” journalists and talking heads who are also on the “right.” Over and over, ad nauseam, they are saying, “We can’t ever let this happen again,” obviously referring to the recent 2020 general election in which their candidate, Donald Trump, may, in the end, lose because of ballot fraud.
As far as I’m concerned, these pansies might as well be saying, “Let Joe Biden (Barack Obama’s stooge) get away with this one, but let’s not allow it to happen again!” as if they would do anything about it in the interim or even four years from now! Assuming, of course, that free elections will take place again in four years.
You’ve got to be kidding me! Don’t you know what “surrendering” is? Do not insult my intelligence, especially by advocating giving a “free pass” this time to Democrats Biden and Harris for stealing my vote and the votes of millions of others who voted for Donald Trump. Don’t try to placate me by telling me that “We can’t ever let this happen again!” The time to do something about this is now! Not later!
As for Joe Biden, he apparently said (and I paraphrase) the American people “won’t stand for” not honoring the election results. Does this emboldened declaration make you AFRAID? Well, I suppose that it could make some a bit uneasy and to postpone what ought to be done now and promise (emptily?), “We can’t ever let this happen again,” especially if BLM and Antifa (the American people Joe is talking about?) were to become involved, and “not stand for it!” I think we know what that would mean.
So, is “We won’t ever let it happen again” the type of attitude and inaction that Republican and conservative victims should have in the face of one of the most serious public crimes ever committed in our country’s history? In all fairness, I should note, too, that it wasn’t the first time for such a crime (remember the election fraud in the 2008 and 2012 elections involving a constitutionally ineligible Democrat candidate, Barack Obama).
I’m wondering who, if anyone, will have what it takes to come forward and do the right thing, and do it now. Understand that no matter which way this goes, there almost certainly is going to be dissent and civil unrest. Isn’t, however, the continued existence of our constitutional democratic republic worth “fighting for” and making great again for all who live here? Unfortunately, something tells me that our government (all three branches, not the least of which is the judiciary and Supreme Court in particular) won’t be accusing many, if any, of those who conspired to commit these most serious violations of election laws and criminal activities. My guess is that true to the government’s recent form, it won’t be holding any of them accountable or punishing them to the extent prescribed by law.
