Thoughts on the Election

Results from the recent Presidential election are still being fought out in state legislatures and in the courts.  The role of the legislatures is very important because, as the United States Constitution directs, “each state shall appoint, in such manner as the legislature thereof may direct” the electors that determine who will be President.

As it now stands, in forty-eight of the fifty states each party chooses a slate of electors, and one of those slates is elected by a plurality of votes within that state during the general election.  The selected electors are then expected to cast their votes for their party’s candidate.  Two states do things differently. In Maine and Nebraska, two electors are chosen by the plurality vote of the entire state’s electorate, and one elector is chosen in each of the state’s congressional districts based on the plurality of votes in that district.

In theory, a state legislature could intervene in the present election and declare the results to be fraudulent and therefore null and void. The legislators could then determine the winner on its own.  However, such a move would be in violation of more than a hundred years of precedent and tradition and might lead to riot and revolution.  Our nation is already divided in a way not experienced since the Civil War.  A small spark could ignite a conflagration.

In the meantime, the issue of election fraud is also being litigated in state and federal courts.

I have no insider information, but the facts as I understand them convince me that there was vote manipulation on a truly massive scale.  Of course, the mainstream media denies this, but the mathematical improbability of some of the election results simply defy any other explanation.  The question is, can Trump’s lawyers prove this in court and have large numbers of illegitimate ballots thrown out?  Given, sufficient time, I believe they can.  But time is running out.

President Trump says that he will bow out if the Electoral College votes for Joseph Biden on December 14th.  Until then, he will be fighting hard to win the decision.  Most political pundits believe his chances of success are minimal, but regardless of whether he succeeds or fails, there must be an honest effort by all parties to reform the way we conduct elections in the future.  We cannot allow this to happen again. 

Please consider the following facts as presented by J. B. Shurk in

The Federalist:

  • Biden is set to become the first President in 60 years to lose the states of Ohio and Florida on his way to election. For a century, these states have consistently predicted the national outcome, and they have been considered roughly representative of the American melting pot as a whole. Despite national polling in late October giving Biden a lead in both states, he lost Ohio by 8 points and Florida by more than 3. 
  • There are 19 counties around the United States that have nearly perfect records of voting for the winner over the last 40 years.  President Trump won 18 of these counties by an average margin of over 16 points.  Biden won one with a margin of 3.
  • In a larger list of 58 bellwether counties that have correctly picked the president since 2000, Trump won 51 of them by an average of 15 points, while the other 7 went to Biden by around 4 points.
  • Though he exceeded Hilary Clinton’s popular vote total by about 15 million, Biden received fewer votes than Hillary Clinton in major metro areas around the country except in the largest urban centers in critical swing states.  In those key cities Biden massively outperformed Hillary, and in many instances the vote totals somehow exceeded the number of registered voters.  In the states that mattered most, so many mail-in ballots poured in for Biden from these big cities that he put up record-breaking numbers and overturned state totals that appeared to show unsurmountable leads for President Trump.

These facts may not be proofs in a legal sense, but can you explain these things without invoking the probability, even certainty, of fraud?
