Electoral fraud is not new in America. From the days of Tammany Hall and the slogan “vote early and often,” malfeasance and cheating have been an unwelcome but stubborn part of our democratic process. What the Democrats are doing in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, though, threatens to be so blatant and so daring that it could deal a mortal wound to the Republic.
Cheating isn’t new to the Democrats – Lyndon Johnson sparked outrage in 1948 when 200 ballots (all Johnson votes) were suddenly “discovered” several days after he forced his opponent for Texas Senate into a runoff. (Look up the Box 13 Scandal). This handed him the election. Ten years later, part-time mayor, part-time mafioso Richard Daly would call candidate John Kennedy to assure him that with help from some friends, Illinois would go to Kennedy. It was a huge relief – Nixon had been leading prior to the phone call, and AP called the state for Kennedy not long after the call.
Both Kennedy and Johnson, though, were well-liked by most of their constituents and, while LBJ would not share JFK’s reputation, they were good at their jobs. Did they cheat? Yes, but on a small enough scale that most people didn’t notice and when they did notice felt comfortable shrugging it off. It didn’t shake their faith in the Republic.
Biden is neither well-liked nor competent, and his people are pumping hundreds of thousands of votes into the states he’s losing. It’s too many to escape notice. Reports coming from Wisconsin show more votes being cast than there are voters registered in the state! When people see that, it will shake their faith in the system. Is that a mess the Democrats are ready to handle? Can they put that genie back in the bottle? They haven’t been able to control the Antifa thugs or BLM rioters.
No matter who gets sworn in come January, this is a sad day for the American Republic and a scary day for Americans. What happens next is anyone’s guess…
