We all remember the night.
November 4, 2020. The Year of Our Lord. But the evening unfolded in a fashion anything but holy.
President Donald J. Trump had spent the year campaigning on the same patriotic planks that brought him to victory four years before.
Jobs were up. GDP was up. Confidence was up, up, up.
Unemployment across all swaths of America was down. Illegal immigration was down. Bullshit tolerance was down, down, down.
The polls closed across the country. The tallies started to roll in. Unsurprisingly to Republicans, the results proved glowing for Trump. In Florida. In Wisconsin. In Michigan. In Pennsylvania. In Arizona. In all the previously blue states that the Donald had flipped in 2016.
All of us started going to bed. Tomorrow was a work-day after all. Four more years of prosperity was all but certain.
But then something happened.
Around 10:00 P.M. Eastern Standard Time, as conservatives started tucking their kids into bed, the talking heads of CNN and MSNBC changed their tune.
The sad donkey bray of disappointment turned into a girlish chitter of mischief.
Votes for Biden started appearing out of nowhere. No explanation. No warning. Something was up.
By midnight, Biden's votes erased the Donald’s leads in every state that went for the 45th President in 2016. By margins that made no sense at all. With ballots that came from some mysterious place where common sense gave way to black magic.
We all like to think that the days of ballot boxes appearing by the van load in a hidden storage closet belong to a distant, more corrupt past. But the truth is that we live with fraud and deceit right now in 2021.
Election Night 2020 proved that our nation’s elections are susceptible to fraud. We should have seen it coming, frankly. Democrats in the Deep State would never have allowed what happened in 2016 to happen again in 2020.
Our mistake? We under-estimated the level of deceit and untruth to which Deep State Democrat Socialists would stoop.
So, now it is up to us to hold the government accountable.
In 2020, the Donald’s legal team tried its damnedest to reject the Baloney Ballots that appeared out of nowhere in Michigan, Arizona, and Pennsylvania. They tried their damnedest against Democrat-appointed judges in heavily-Democrat metropolises run by corrupt unions. They tried and were resisted.
In 2021, we must do our damnedest as conservatives to support Republican efforts to make voting more secure. We have to support Republican efforts to bolster America’s election integrity by any means necessary.
The second we can no longer trust our elections, that is the moment America has ceased to be a republic.
