Saying the election is fraudulent does not make it so. There is no evidence of fraud. Trump simply did not win.I live in the upper Ohio River valley, in a county that voted greater than 65% for Trump. I ventured out today to do some shopping. I am aware that the majority of my fellow customers disagree with my personal politics.
And yet no one was discussing politics. We were all citizens trying our best to get through these difficult times.
My question to those of you advocating armed insurrection and political violence is why?
Why would you be willing to take part in criminal activity just to advance your political ideology?
And, more crucially, who are you going to shoot? Someone with a Biden bumper sticker on their car? Someone driving a Smart Car or at least not a pickup truck? Someone who, as an American citizen has the right, voices criticism of Trump or Trump policies?
Where are your battle lines drawn? Or are you just so upset that you would attack someone just to make a point?
Because if this fraudulent election is allowed to stand then the Republic is dead. That's why. As the Founders said, "it is oftimes necessary for the tree of liberty to be nourished by the blood of patriots, and tyrants".
They fought to create this Republic. We will fight to preserve it.
