If the election is close, Donald Trump can challenge the results in one or two states. But if Biden wins big in too many states, Trump will have to concede. Biden’s victory will be beyond legal challenge. The will of the American public and of the states will be clear.
This has got to be the goal of every patriotic American: to bring in the vote for Biden on such a scale that, on November 3rd, Trump will be utterly rebuked, rejected, and humiliated.
There is always something mystical about American elections. Polls only imperfectly register what the electorate thinks and feels. Polls only imperfectly register where the electorate is heading, and pundits’ speculation only partly explains why.
The people’s will is not easy to subvert, particularly given the layers of state and county government that administer elections. Since 2016, many states have improved their voting systems, making them more impervious to manipulation. The free and fair conduct of an election is precisely what the unworthy occupant of the White House fears.
With good reason. All across the country, ordinary Americans are gearing up and diligently aligning themselves into a Mighty Blue Wave. They are encouraging one another to rise up and vote, knowing that a massive voter turnout for Biden and other Democratic candidates will favorably resolve an excruciating political crisis and put our battered and burned nation in a position to build back better.
The incumbent president has used every trick he can think of to tear down the traditions, values, and institutions that are intrinsic to the nation’s prestige and integrity. He has insulted and demeaned the very citizens whose rights and welfare he is supposed to defend. He has denied aid to states whose economies are the backbone of national prosperity. Now, his fate is in the hands of every American he has put down and betrayed.
