We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. ~Declaration of Independence
When Thomas Jefferson wrote these 55 words, he chiseled into the tablet of history basic concepts of governance. He acknowledged two fundamental yet incredibly powerful human conditions. First, that our rights come from God and not from government. Second, the duty and power that government has to secure these rights comes from the very people upon whom God has bestowed them. In short, We, the People give consent to be governed. Implicit in this contract is our natural ability to revoke our consent as well as to reject those who would attempt to serve illegitimately.
Today, we seem to be at a crossroads of sorts with this concept, a point in our nation’s history where we need to reflect more deeply on the meaning of consent. If we find there’s a defect with government vis-à-vis consent, then perhaps we must seek remedies for this blemish. It is essential that we make government legitimate if the Republic is to survive.
The 2020 Elections were a disaster. That there was widespread, systematic, organized, and massive vote fraud and election rigging by democrats is an understatement. Only the blind squirrels in the mainstream media are incapable of finding these nuts. The organized crime operation to steal the election from President Donald J. Trump – and from We the People – was premeditated months in advance. It played out in the open, despite constant warnings from Trump that what we eventually saw on Election Night and later was predictable, real, and sobering in consequence.
Under the guise of the COVID canard, the left demanded two conditions that worked in harmony to ensure the cheating operation was successful: mail-in voting and extended deadlines for ballot counting. The mail-in vote was portrayed as necessary because in-person voting was too risky during a pandemic, or so they claimed. However, rioting, looting, assault, murder, vandalism, and statue toppling by thousands of leftists were not risky assemblies at all. The duplicity was on full display. That was our first red flag.
Extended deadlines to count votes were designed to give the cheaters more time to print and fill-out hundreds of thousands of fraudulent ballots while the counting was underway. After all, they couldn’t know in advance how big Trump’s real lead would be, so they needed to buy time to erase his win and steal the election. The best way to do that was to halt counting on election night in key swing states to assess Biden’s vote deficit. Then, under the cover of darkness, in the wee hours of the morning, they dumped a gazillion ballots into the system with 100% of them for Joe Biden. That was another red flag. Desperate Socialists are rarely smart.
In places like Pennsylvania where President Trump held a commanding lead of 700,000+ votes over Biden on election night, late-arriving ballots turned the tide. In just a few short days, Biden flipped the vote count and was 50,000+ votes ahead. Everything about this scenario, which wasn’t confined to just one state, defies common sense, believability, and the precepts of probability and statistics.
Biden went from trailing the incumbent President on election night, to taking a stunning lead the following day. The Soros-backed media moguls wasted no time declaring him the winner. And in typical Marxist fashion, they shut down any attempt to debate the obvious: that the media doesn’t declare winners; only state-certified results and votes cast by the Electoral College electors count. Just like leftists tell us how Climate Change is ‘settled science’ (translation, NOT open for discussion), so too became Joe Biden’s ascendency to the most powerful position in the world.
What does all this have to do with Thomas Jefferson and the Declaration of Independence? Plenty. You see, if Biden becomes President through massive vote fraud and cheating, then he really hasn’t been elected at all. If he was buoyed to the ‘win’ through fraudulent votes, then he will serve illegitimately and without our consent. It’s not even a case for revoking consent. After all, we cannot revoke that which we did not grant.
If our will and our votes were for President Trump, and I believe he rightfully won the election, then to the people being governed, only Trump has our consent. He is still our President despite any cheating interloper who may occupy the Oval Office.
I pray dearly that President Trump and his legal team get to the bottom of all the fraud expeditiously and thoroughly. I want not only for the will of the People to be recognized and affirmed, but I want justice for all those who dared to corrupt our Constitution through this sham effort to install an unelected phony as our President. Public shame won’t be enough. I want indictments, jail time, and the loss of freedom, reputation, and wealth for those who cheated. If we don’t get that, then we will have legitimized election fraud and the landscape of elections will forever be perverted.
If a man to whom we did not give consent to govern pretends to be our President, then I am certain more than a few Americans will refuse to accept the outcome. I cannot predict the future, but I can look to the past. When our Founding Fathers grew weary of government overreach and corruption, it stirred in them the passions of revolution and resulted in new governance.
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.” ~Thomas Jefferson
I have never experienced a time before in my life when the same passions that stirred our Founders to action seem to be swirling about in the flotsam and jetsam of society today. People are angry, frustrated, and resentful. The passions of tens of millions of Americans over this election fraud are seething and boiling in the background. The Democrat Party and its Ministry of Propaganda (AKA, mainstream media) may dismiss this anger all they want, but it’s very, very real.
I fear this may not end peacefully. May God have mercy on the United States of America.
