Over at PJ Media Robert Spence asks the question, Why Democrats Would Dare Steal Elections in Plain Sight.
The brazenness of the theft is astounding. Democrat election officials in Arizona and Florida, not finding the will of the people to their liking, are manufacturing a will of the people of their own. In Florida, they’re miraculously finding ballots — overwhelmingly votes for Democrats, of course — that were somehow inexplicably overlooked on election day. In Arizona, the Republican Party has accused Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes of “premeditated destruction of evidence” leading to “voting irregularities.”
We’ve known for ages that this is what the Democrats do. LBJ used to brag about it, and delighted in the practice. It is pretty well universally believed that Mayor Daly delivered the presidency to JFK. Al Franken in Minnesota won on the third recount after sufficient ballot boxes had been miraculously discovered to put him over the top. The fact that there are over 3,000,000 more registered voters in the US than there are living adults certainly is a clue that electoral monkey business is afoot.
But why do it out in the open this time? Spencer believes that whereas this openness about is not a bug due to stupid and incompetent people, thought I grant that there is plenty of that, but a feature. Spencer again:
The Left is doing this out in the open to send a message:
There is nothing you can do. We will win. If we lose, we will cheat. We will lie. We will steal. And there is nothing, absolutely nothing, that you can do about it.
If the Democrats pull this off, they will have shown conservatives — and the world — that nothing could stop them. The governor of Florida couldn’t stop them. The courts couldn’t stop them. President Trump himself, who has been commenting repeatedly on Twitter about the theft, couldn’t stop them.
The lesson that conservatives are meant to learn is not just that the Left will stop at nothing, but that the Left is unstoppable. Republicans and conservatives can vote for “drain the swamp” candidates all they want — but the swamp will not be drained, as those candidates will not take office even if they win.
Well, maybe. The Donks, bless their black little hearts, are trying to create a world in which they alone have seized, eternally hold and everlastingly wield all power, for ever and ever, amen. They may well bring into existence the Glorious World of Next Tuesday, based on a 19th century industrial model of central control as horribly perfected in the 20th. Such systems have tottered into the 21st Century, to be sure, but none are self sufficient and all will collapse in due course.
The reason is simple. The absolute control of information that such regimes require is no longer possible Oh, yes, the poor damned Norks are still under the Kim thumb, but even so information is filtering in and being disseminated on the QT, and is having a small but growing effect on the regime. Monster China, with all its power can’t stop people from resisting the newly crowned Emperor Xi no matter how he papers over the problems. Here in the US we are leaders still in the Free World, though you would never know it to watch the “news”. The thrust of the 21st century is towards decentralization, greatly mediated by the internet. Americans won’t tolerate having a 19th century government imposed on us.
Have a listen to Scott Rasmussen, who makes some very interesting and hopeful points.
All is not lost, it is just getting interesting.
