Editor’s Note: While the media and other leftist elites ignore the millions of folks living in “flyover” states, they do so at their own peril; it was this silent majority that put President Trump in the White House. Each week, Liberty Nation gives voice to the hard-working heartlanders who are silent no more.
“Lordy be, what the hell was that?” It was the cry across flyover states as Election 2020 gorged, became nauseous, and vomited on the party crowd as the Trump v. Biden contest flip-flopped around like a carp on the beach. Now three days past, the numbness of all-nighters pulled by political voyeurs leaves the presidential race with more confusion and disbelief than the dangling and dimpled chad debacle in 2000. Remember when Al Gore conceded to G. Dub Bush – twice – before desperate election officials punted, sending the entire Florida vote count to the Supreme Court to determine the winner?
Have we not learned anything?
Perhaps there are several straightforward explanations to consider. And heartlanders chewed them all up and spat them out, embracing common sense and using the word “fraud” frequently this week.
The Math Makes Less Sense to Conservatives
The Federalist picked up the miracle math trail conducted in Michigan and Wisconsin that pushed Mr. Biden into winning both swing states. Here is what they noticed in the wee hours while most of America was sleeping:
“In both Michigan and Wisconsin, vote dumps early Wednesday morning showed 100 percent of the votes going for Biden and zero percent—that’s zero, so not even one vote—for Trump. In Michigan, Biden somehow got 138,339 votes, and Trump got none, zero, in an overnight vote-dump.”
Their due diligence in reporting this apparent miracle was met with immediate Twitter censorship. Yet flyover folks were having none of it. In Eunice, LA, Maranda Stroderd used a bad word – now more common than ever before in American vernacular – in summing up the Democrats: “God, they’re so stupid. All these votes ‘found’ are all democrat. Lolol. Do you have any idea how statistically impossible that is? I can’t wait to see how the courts handle this bulls–t.”
But Marietta, GA voter Stephen Alexander reminded us, “Trump is no pushover. He will fight long and hard. Let’s see who prevails.” And Ruth Jacob in the Windy City urged Trump to take it to the top. “I knew this would happen,” she said. “President Trump has to fight this all the way to the Supreme Court.”
But hanky-panky in counting votes wasn’t all about the unlikely voter turnout statistics. Nope, 2020’s own version of the dangling chad debacle was the ridiculous decision to have people use felt-tip Sharpies to fill out their thin paper ballots. Oh, the bleeding that occurred was cause for concern.
The Felt-tip Fiasco
Folks who were given felt-tip pens at polling locations, and those who were smart enough to avoid such writing instruments on mail-in ballots, smelled a giant rat in both New Mexico and Arizona. One conservative in Stanley, NM, asked, “are we being played or what?”
Ian Murray, hailing from Mesa, AZ, jumped all over his local NBC affiliate as they attempted to dismiss felt tips on the ballot. “Nice try, but no one believes you since anyone who read the instructions on the ballot saw it said not to use sharpies.”
There was so much hubbub stemming from erroneous ballot counting that Arizonans converged on Deputy Solicitor General Michael S. Catlett and Scott Jarrett, the Maricopa County elections director, demanding answers. Catlett told Fox News, “We have received hundreds of voter complaints regarding the use of Sharpie brand markers (‘Sharpies’) to fill out ballots on Election Day at voting centers in Maricopa County.”
How does this country think voting processes mimicking the 1800s is a good idea in this day and age? Perhaps a universal mandate is necessary for future elections – this one will go down in the history annals as a cluster, er well, that’s what a friend of a friend said recently.
Fix This Mess
There is unrest in the air. Tensions are high, and Dramamine to calm the queasiness is becoming America’s drug of choice. However long it takes to sort out the irregularities – or outright fraud – at precincts, a full accounting of every legitimate vote must be completed before anyone claims victory. No matter the outcome, it must be indisputable.
While the country whines, badgers, grumbles, and moans, one patriot found the glass not only half-full but almost to the brim. Ella Lindsay Purvis in NM had us take a step back and evaluate her thoughts:
“I really think this voting fiasco is a blessing in disguise. It is showing how corrupt our voting system has become. I am praying that everyone who voted illegally and anyone that helped them will be arrested and thrown in jail.”
Hallelujah. Wouldn’t that be the best conclusion to 2020?
