They’re Stealing the Election
Crisis Magazine, 9 November 2020
G. K. Chesterton once wrote, “The unconscious democracy of America is a very fine thing. It is a true and deep and instinctive assumption of the equality of citizens, which even voting and elections have not destroyed.” I wonder what Mr. Chesterton would have said about mail-in ballots.
After so many hopeful prayers and earnest efforts to mobilize Christian and conservative voters, the 2020 American presidential election has a really rotten smell about it. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are dragging themselves through a swamp of unprecedented vote-counting to the 270 electoral college votes needed to win the White House. There has never been an election comeback like this in history, the media organs say; in fact, it’s (quite literally) unbelievable. And while CNN feverishly asserts in their coverage that there is absolutely nothing fishy going on, the truth that something is amiss is only too, too clear. The lady doth protest too much, methinks.
