Things have gone off the rails lately. Yes, they were headed that way for some time, but not at this pace. So I'd like to back up a little and
explain a few things that I feel like most of the folks on my side are feeling, but not able to articulate due to the toxic nature of recent
Trump isn't presidential, he isn't proper, he isn't nice. He's brash, bombastic, egotistical and opinionated. He was elected president.
Amazingly enough I think not because of those negative qualities, but because he was an outsider, a guy with different untried ideas, and a middle
finger to the establishment. Perhaps those are bad reasons to elect a leader, but none of that matters now, it was already done.
So we had 4 years of a Trump presidency. Those of us who don't hate him, look at both the accomplishments and the failures. Sadly, the failures
don't get much air time since so many non failures were manufactured and billed as such to create a negative conversation with every mention of his
name. This isn't debatable, it's fact. But there were good accomplishments. Removing NAFTA. Renegotiating trade agreements more agreeable to the
US. Ending the constant war machine. Appointing constitutional judges to the SCOTUS. Bringing peace to some middle eastern nations without bombing
them into compliance.
So by some standards, he was a good president. If you judge by how hurt your feelz were at any given point, you may have an alternative view.
But with regard to the election, we have some serious animosity that needs to be resolved. Declaring martial law isn't the solution Subverting
social norms isn't the solution. Proving that the claims of fraud are unfounded IS a solution.
I had the thought early on that if a recount in Georgia was done, and nothing changed, it would show that everything was kosher there, and likely
translated to other areas. yes there were some localized fraud, but as of yet nothing pointing to a widespread conspiracy, which is what would be
needed for the claims to be true. But here is where it got murky. A recount was done, but not correctly and not looking at the main charge of why
there was questions in the first place.
Signature verification of the massive amount of mail in ballots. We were told there are signatures on file with the state for each registered voter.
We know from previous elections that a percentage of mail in ballots are usually found to have issues and be rejected. In this election, due to
Covid, things were done completely different. Instead of having those who wanted to vote by mail request a ballot, they were sent to everyone in some
sates. Georgia being one of them. And the amount of ballots with issues was at an amazingly low level, while the amount of ballots turned in was at
an amazingly high level. Many people of both political affiliations have stated that mail in ballots of this kind are avenues for fraud. It doesn't
take a high IQ person to realize that in this situation, ballots could be collected, and filled out by someone other than the voter. A whole bunch of
them. One way to verify that legal voters were the one's who cast the ballot, is to verify their signature. This wasn't done in any meaningful
way. It sure looks like that was by design.
If it could be verified that the mail in ballots in Georgia were indeed signature verified, and the ones who's signature looked wrong, could be
checked with the person who filled that ballot out, we could end the speculation on that front, and likely end the entire fiasco. It's now more
important than ever to find a way to restore confidence in this process. it would go one of two ways. Either the ballots would show nothing out of
the ordinary happened, or it would show irregularities that may have changed the outcome of the election. I don't think this is really about
changing the results at this point, I don't even know if a constitutional avenue exists on that front.
If you feel that the signatures aren't a valid reason to re-check those ballots, why? Is election integrity not important if the desired outcome has
And lastly, perhaps most importantly as well. Some news is meant to make you feel good, while not offering factual reporting. In fact, I don't know
of any journalism today that actually does report facts. So bringing a garbage unvetted story into the fray doesn't help, it hurts. it feeds the
addiction of the AWB. (Always right brigade) These are folks who watch a thread progress, and jump on some inaccuracy they can easily disprove.
Trouble is, they are usually correct, and that just digs the knife in more with a twist. If you deal in verifiable facts, those people won't have
the ammunition needed to make those condescending posts. They would be relegated to discussing the facts. Which in a better place in a better time,
is how all of this should work. If you bring garbage, don't look surprised when it's pointed out how much you stink.
