In the MIDDLE of the RIGHT: A thought from history:

January 12, 2021

A thought from history: “Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything,”Attributed to Joseph Stalin.And that’s the rub, isn’t it? Do you trust those who count the votes?I once did. I was saddened and upset that Barry Soetoro won the Presidency back in 2008….and again in 2012. Both times, however,  I believed that he had legitimately won against the Republican challengers. (Both times they were very weak opponents, but no matter). I believed that the American People had spoken and made their choices. Both times were legitimate victories. At the end of it, while he was not “MY” President, he was, legitimately, “OUR” President. Sadly, I cannot say that Joe Biden is “OUR” president. I don’t trust the people who count the votes any longer, nor do I believe the ballots that arrived by mail (and perhaps by other means) were all legitimate. There were too many Red Flags and anomalies and inconsitencies to believe that all the election results are true accounts of the will of the people. And when we objected, there was no realistic attempt to investigate or clarify those oddities…we were just told to accept it. People no longer beieve that their vote counts. Even thinking folks on the side that “won” have to be afraid that next time, their vote will not matter either. Yes, there are enough that will accept that winning this round justifies the means that that victory was assured, but thinking people realize what has happened…and what it means for the future. What do we do now?

    On the Obama 2012 win, I do not suspect the sort of criminal activity we saw in the 2020 elections. But he did alter the outcome by using the IRS to gut the Tea Party and other groups opposed to him. That move was suggested to him by none other than John McCain. So there was trickery and shenanigans that were never investigated and that Obama never paid for. They were just in the year or 2 before the election and not on the night of it.

    The only difference, emphasis on ‘only’, between 2008/2012 and 2020 is most people thought the former was legitimate. Now, many of those same people see the truth of the matter. That truth was not as evident then as it is today.

    Why is it so evident, so overt, this time? Precisely because the ability to pull it off in 2008, then again in 2012 emboldened the manipulators. They didn’t get caught yet again in 2016 but they realized they had to double down – socialists ALWAYS double down – to not let victory evade them ever again.

    One must be careful when speaking in absolute terms. Yet it is true that the machinations of socialists are very predictable; they ALWAYS double down just as they ALWAYS project and ALWAYS lie..
