Can We Trust The Outcome In November

By Ray Cardello for June 6, 2024, Season 26 / Post 46

It is sad and unfortunate that this question even comes to the surface. The of voting early and often in Chicago should be behind us. We should have the technology to secure an election so that the outcome is beyond scrutiny. We also know it is terribly naive to think that way. I am not a political or election expert, but I think I can look at a situation objectively and apply logic to my assessment. My take on the 2020 election is there is no way in hell that Joe Biden got 81 million votes legitimately, and the Democrats effectively manipulated the results. I guess that makes me a reluctant election denier. I accept that Joe Biden is our president, but not how he found his way to the Oval Office. With America in the grasp of a global pandemic and Joe Biden rarely leaving his Delaware basement, there is no logical explanation for Biden garnering over 12 million votes more than Barack Obama did when he set the previous record in 2008. Obama was a shooting star hitting the political scene. A Black man with little Washington experience who captured the minds of Democrats and all minorities saw him as a savior. Joe Biden was an aging white man who spent his life in Washington and had little to show for his five decades of playing the system except for a healthy retirement plan he could not account for. Joe was a symbol of the past and certainly not of hope for the future, except he grasped the WOKE culture with a Black female VP and the promise of diversity even at the expense of quality.

The Democrat machine put Joe Biden in the White House, and with the hatred manufactured on the Left for Donald Trump, they probably would have been successful with Bob Menendez. The Democrats used to be the Party of the People, but now they are masters of how to use the People. They had conditioned groups like the Blacks and Browns that they were the only Party that looked out for them, and thus, they were owed their votes. They own the abortion issue and, therefore, have a stranglehold on the women’s vote. And as anti-business as their policies prove, they still command the Union votes. They do a better job of registering new voters, utilizing early voting, and creating votes with ballot harvesting. And don’t forget they have Hollywood and the media shamelessly wearing uniforms with a Big D on their chests.

The Republicans are late to the game. They still think you can win the Presidency by playing by the rules, and now they are going to battle with a man who is either revered or hated and now wears a huge F on his suit coat. Most people cannot tell you what crime Trump committed to become a convicted felon, but that does not matter. The fact that every Democrat can call Trump a convicted felon will pay dividends. Trump’s conviction will be overturned, but probably not until after the election. The damage has been done, and it may be enough to keep Trump out of the Oval and put Biden/Harris, along with whoever is really running things back in.

Do I think Trump can win? Absolutely, but his VP pick is crucial. With either man, voters know this is a one-term deal. People will actually be voting for the VP. We know Harris and her record, and she definitely should not be anywhere near the Oval Office. Trump has some incredible talent to choose from. He may be forced to play the diversity card and go with Tim Scott or Nicky Haley. Either would be a good choice, but the Republicans have to commit to playing a dirty campaign if they want to win the prize. I think they can do it, and the country needs them to do it. Let’s get it done.
