2020 and the Brilliance of the Founders

The Democrats are trying to steal the 2020 presidential election. 

We can say the Democrats “are trying” to steal the election because of the brilliance of the framers of the Constitution. The Democrats have not yet succeeded in stealing the election because the constitutional process of electing the president is not over yet. The constitutional process has three steps. First, we the people vote. Then, the Electoral College votes. Finally, Congress votes. This is how it is always done when we elect a president of the United States.

As abnormal as it feels right now, it is important for us to remember that we are right now still within the normal timeline of the constitutional process. What makes this election feel so abnormal is what happened during the first step in the process. There was a blatant attempt by the Democrats to steal the election.

Normally, the vote when you and I go to the polls is the one that gets all the attention, and normally we know right away who won. The next step in the process is the vote of the Electoral College. Finally, Congress counts the votes of the college and certifies the winner. In a normal election, the voting of the college and the Congress get little attention.

If the election had been over at the first step in the process as it is in other countries, Biden would have been elected in the same sense in which Saddam Hussein and Hugo Chavez used to win elections. The American way is a better way.

Those who deny the obvious fact that the Democrats stole the vote know the truth as well as you do. They are following that protocol loved by totalitarians everywhere, the Big Lie; simply keep repeating the Lie no matter what happens.

The Big Lie comes in two varieties. In the first version, there is no evidence of wrongdoing in the election when you and I voted. In the second version, the Electoral College has spoken and that’s the end of it. Both versions are obviously false. There is overwhelming evidence of fraud, and the political process is not over. The people who say it is over know better.

It’s important for us to remember that we are still in the midst of the political process. That is why the Democrats and their minions in the media and the Republican Party are now rolling out a barrage of Big Lie propaganda. The Democrats also need to win this phase of the political process to get away with stealing the election. The election is ongoing.

An aroused American public which refuses to accept this attempt to steal the election from them will make it possible for those in Congress to do what they generally try to avoid doing—living up to their constitutional duty. They should not certify this attempt to steal the election. 

What happens then? 

In simplest terms, the new House of Representatives, presided over by Vice President Mike Pence will choose the president. Since each state has one vote and there are more Republican led delegations in Congress, a reasonable expectation is that the winner of this three-step process will be Donald Trump, the man who actually won the first step in the process—thanks to the brilliance of America’s Founders.

And, also according to the framers’ design, the new Senate chooses the vice president, with each senator assigned one vote. This provision of the Constitution elevates the results of the two senatorial elections in Georgia to unusual importance. The voters in Georgia have a special opportunity to “stop the steal”—again thanks to the Founders’ brilliance.
