From a British perspective American #presidential elections are curious affairs. As we understand it two persons are chosen from a population of around 331 million to “run” for president. The two permitted political parties chose who these persons will be. The winner, as we understand it is the one who raises the most money …
A little unfair perhaps but that’s certainly the impression given. What’s also curious is that in many places mass absentee voting is permitted – which as we know from UK experience leads to equally mass election fraud. Here in the UK it is the favoured tactic of #Labour as this year has shown it’s now also the favoured tactic of Labour’s analogue in the USA, the #Democratic Party, or at least so it’s alleged. Another curious aspect of American elections is that many votes are counted by machine and that many of the machines memory has been wiped to prevent the true voting figures being checked with court orders required to prevent those that are left being similarly vandalised.
We also know that the #Dominion voting machines can and according to their manuals ought to be loaded with test data prior to use in order to confirm certification of accuracy. The manual though also states that this test data has to then be purged from the machines prior to actual use to prevent errors.
At this stage the main allegations of voter fraud in the US elections are:
- Postal (absentee) voter fraud with claims that votes have been assigned to dead people, economic migrants ineligible to vote, old fashioned vote stuffing
- Voter intimidation
- Dishonest polling (leading to voter apathy)
- Destruction of legitimate votes
The claims above are evidenced by claims that:
- In places (counties) are said to have polled more votes than have eligible voters.
- Witness evidence
- Video evidence
- Statistical analysis
So we now have a Disunited States of #America where one state after another, currently #Texas with #Alabama waiting in the wings attempting to sue the four states #Georgia, #Michigan, #Pennsylvania and #Wisconsin said to be most involved in promoting electoral Fraud.
Clearly The Dormouse isn’t going to offer a verdict, there’s lots of evidence, claims and counter claims on line. The Dormouse encourages folks to conduct their own research and make their own minds up. No, the Dormouse is more concerned about how these claims are being handled.
Here we have #YouTube and #Twitter, allegedly politically unaligned social media platforms actively promoting a disputed political narrative by attacking the opposite point of view. The Dormouse asks, “Is this a legitimate role for social media? Should social media companies be permitted to present their own internal outlook as fact?” In a free society the answer is clearly “no”. If the majority of adults are considered wise enough to vote for a political candidate they have to be trusted to decide for themselves what evidence they are resented with is factual or is not.
The American press though refuse to take up the battle cry and continue to propagandize along party political lines. The election results are fraudulent – Republican, the election results are true – Democrat are the watchwords of the day. No one, press or judiciary is prepared to actually look at the allegations being made on a purely factual basis. This is a worry.
The big loser in all this palaver is of course the United States itself. As things currently stand there are banana republics holding a better reputation for election integrity that the USA and as the nation falls into violence and anarchy things will only get worse.
