The Venezuela-ing of America
Posted on November 18, 2020     by Mike     3 Comments

Banana republic is as banana republic does.

    By now, the election has displayed numerous “tells” that our own State Department uses to highlight fraudulent vote tabulation in countries like Iran and Ukraine: statistical anomalies, blocking and obscuring official observers, procedural irregularities such as stopping vote counts, suspicious software “glitches,” and social media blackouts when citizens raise the alarm.

    Thankfully, litigation, hand-recounts, and even federal investigations of fraud are all underway—a process that other countries with questionable elections like Syria don’t have. But if proof of systematic meddling is uncovered, Americans must still rely on the justice system to act on this proof, and the media to ensure the rightful winner is declared.

    But what if these hallowed institutions don’t deliver?

    It might be terrifying to admit, but American democracy depends on authorities who have lost the public trust: unbiased state and city officials to ensure procedural fairness, unbiased election workers to ensure vote integrity, unbiased judges to enforce that integrity, and unbiased media to inform the American people about the other three. Who will audit the auditors? To examine one test case, the Georgia GOP has already raised alarms that the promised audit in their state does not meet crucial evidentiary criteria. Will something be done?

We hateful right wing crackpots support the 2nd Amendment, our immigration laws, our Constitution, the rule of actual law, a neutral view of race and "gender" (whatever that is), fair and open elections, economic growth, enforcement or repeal of existing laws, moral clarity, America first, truth, justice and the American way.

The sanctimonious left doesn't.
