I’m always a bit wary about discussing political issues on my blogs, because they often expose strong feelings of both sides of the arguments, but I feel I need to express my thoughts on the election fraud issue that is rife at the moment. I don’t hear anybody else talking about this issue in the way I see it, so I’m going to explain my views below.
Firstly, I’d like to state that I’m not the supporter of any political party. I’m a fan of good governance no matter which party can provide that the best. I also believe that the first priority should be to take care of the most vulnerable people in our societies, because they’re the ones least able to help themselves and most in need of assistance from the community.
My Arguments on Election Fraud
The current claims of widespread election fraud in the United States bring a large question to mind;
Is widespread election fraud possible in the United States today?
If the answer to this question is “No”, then that’s the end of the discussion.
If the answer to this question is “Yes”, then it leads to a very different set of questions;
If widespread election fraud is possible, why haven’t republicans done it? Why are the Democrats able to do it so well and yet the Republicans aren’t? Why did the Republicans allow the Democrats to execute election fraud so easily?
It would be a very strange world if widespread election fraud was possible. The Republicans have been warning about it for months before the election. So, if it’s possible, they knew all about it yet didn’t do anything to stop it and didn’t partake in fraud themselves. This is even though the Republicans are in government and are in control of everything, so why didn’t they put processes in place to stop the widespread fraud they knew was going to happen?
Why does it appear that this alleged “fraud” can only happen if the Republicans are behind in the election.
The only conclusions I can see are these;
- The sitting president is a bad president because his administration has allowed widespread election fraud to take place, even though they knew it was going to happen
- The Republican Party has failed badly because they allowed the Democrats to beat them in an election they both knew could be rigged
- There is no widespread election fraud and more Americans voted for the Democrats
Personally, I believe that the last conclusion is the one most likely to be true. If it was possible to rig the election, I can’t believe that the Republicans wouldn’t have been all over that and either stopped it or participated in the fraud to bias things in their favour.
Please don’t take what I’ve written here as a statement that I prefer one party over another in the United States. I just find the circumstances rather hard to believe. The United States, and all countries in the world need good and fair governance. Unfortunately, in many, many parts of the world, this is severely lacking. I hope that changes soon and that claims of election fraud become a thing of the past and good policies are put in place to benefit the most vulnerable people in society first.
