EDITORIAL:         Is Democracy Still Possible in America?

                                The current presidential election is characterized by vituperative, dishonest and politically biased extremism from all sides. A large portion of the vote was offloaded to the U.S. Postal Service on short notice, with inadequate provision for security or reliability. Reports and accusations of vote fraud abound. Since such cheating is traditional, there is little doubt that it exists; the question applies to its scale, traditionally minor. But allegedly, not this time. Given America’s steady retreat from traditional religion, ethics and tolerance, it is a reasonable concern.

                It’s important to realize that voting machines and the voting process can be hacked.  Beyond that, transferring the machine data can be hacked, leaving no evidence. We assume that folk who have bothered to write hacking software for U.S. voting machines intend its use. Reports have described Trump votes awarded to Biden, election interference, dead people voting and large, mysterious Biden ballot dumps in swing states. Recounts have been ordered in some states. Voter turnout is unreasonably high in some places  and it is questionable that Biden would overwhelm Trump in places where other GOP candidates are showing strong gains. But who will recount?                 The Democrats act as though only they have a right to power; they even impeached the President upon trumped-up evidence. If the voting is administered so as to justify a loss of faith, how can a democracy exist?

    The Democrats are globalists and globalists are against democracy – which explains everything. Perhaps the Democrats should change their name, they are just confusing people.

    When people vote for the opposite of what they want – looks like you are right.

      If so, the archaic “dead right” comes to mind …

      • con says:

        Some people must learn from experience. Trouble is in large numbers they force the rest of us to re-undergo the punishment attached to that re-learning. Lest we forget? That generation has died off and the rest of us have forgotten.

      • Eleanor curtis says:

        I am very much afraid that you are right on …
