We are all participants and beneficiaries of this wonderful Republic known as the United States of America.Regardless of political affiliation, we all share the deep conviction that our vote must be safeguarded and it must count because it is sacrosanct.The presidential election on November 3, and its aftermath, have raised very serious concerns about the integrity of the voting process.We need to allow all the time needed in order to cleanse the voting process through legal means so that confidence in election results and processes may be restored. BACKGROUND
The press conference with Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis on November 19 has demonstrated that there is plenty of evidence of fraud, obstruction of election laws, and corruption of the voting process. Though the press conference was titled “paths to victory,” Rudy, Sidney, and Jenna did not fully spell out their case.So, let us complete the argument that they began to make on November 19.

By Don Brown In the last twenty years, democrats have twice lost presidential elections when the Electoral College has “trumped” the popular vote, leading to republican victories. First came George W. Bush’s electoral victory over Al Gore in 2000, then Trump’s shocker over Hillary in 2016. As of this writing, the post-Election Day 2020 presidential election remains mired in litigation, with claims of “President-elect” Biden ordained by the mainstream media on one side, and more accurate claims of widespread ballot fraud on the other.
Even still, radical democrats demand the abolition of the Electoral College. “It’s undemocratic,” they say.“The will of the people should rule,” they cry. Yes, it’s undemocratic, with states sending electors to elect the president rather than by popular vote, which, believe it or not, is an exceptionally good thing. That’s because the United States is not, and never has been a “democracy.” The word “democracy” is not in the Constitution. In fact, the founders hated democracies. Instead, Article 4, Section 4, states that the Constitution provides a “Republican” form of government. Not a democracy. There’s a difference.
