Why do Democrats steal elections?

Why do Democrats steal elections? by Peter Burrows 12/18/20 

I know some of you are thinking, “C’mon Burro, Republicans steal elections, too.” That may be true, but it seems to be relatively rare. I have three books about Democrats stealing elections,* and if you can show me ONE book about Republicans stealing elections, I’ll buy you a Don Juan Burrito.   

In fact, stealing elections is built into the Democrats’ DNA. You want proof? Just ask a Democrat if we should require a national photo-ID to vote, such as they have in Mexico: “HORRORS!! What a voter-suppression RACIST idea! Besides, there’s no proof of voter fraud — NONE! NONE! — you dirty-bastard racist Republican.”  

To paraphrase Shakespeare, “Methinks they doth protest too much,” although some of them actually believe that nonsense.  Actually, photo-IDs wouldn’t do much to prevent the new ways elections are stolen, which involves falsifying mail-in ballots, corrupting voting machine software, harvesting ballots, and voting by non-citizens, to name a few biggies.  

All of which requires a good-sized organization of like-minded people, especially where more than one polling place is involved, e.g., Cook County in Illinois, Wayne County in Michigan, and Milwaukee County in Wisconsin. Sound familiar? As Hillary Clinton might say, stealing an election requires a village, so to speak. 

Furthermore, if the collusion involves numerous states, it becomes an effort to overthrow a “duly elected” national government, which is an act of treason. Democrats, of course, don’t see it that way. In fact, they’ll tell you they’re being patriotic because putting Democrats in office is obviously the best thing for America because, as everybody knows, Republicans are evil.    

This explains why Democrats cooperate to steal elections: they share the same twisted ideology. They all believe Republicans are racist, fascist, sexist morons who cling to their Bibles and their guns. Republicans will put blacks back into chains and force women to have babies. Republicans don’t care about science, people, or social justice. In a word, Republicans don’t CARE!!   

This makes them bad people, a conviction far too many Democrats hold with an invincible moral certitude. That’s why people who wouldn’t think of cheating on the golf course or stealing a candy bar have no compunction about stealing elections from Republicans:  It’s the morally correct, right thing to do. The end justifies the means, baby. 

Liberals have always thought they were morally and intellectually superior people. This is in spite of the fact that they have NO evidence to support their high opinion of themselves, and that there is OVERWHELMING evidence that the typical liberal is a self-righteous, ignorant hypocrite, far more concerned with moral grandstanding than actually doing anything good.  

Now, however, moral grandstanding has been replaced by moral crusading, and crusaders burn people at the stake. The Social Justice Warriors, SJWs, have taken over the Democrat Party, and the ‘justice’ they want most of all is to punish those evil-dirty-bastard Republicans who voted for that racist-Nazi Trump. While they’re at it, they’ll bring justice to those damned climate deniers, Islamophobes and transphobes, too.   

It wasn’t always this way. Stealing elections used to be more about money and ego. Back in 1960, when JFK’s win over Nixon was highly questionable, nobody was hyperventilating about Armageddon if the other side won. Back then there wasn’t that much difference in the two candidates.  JFK cut taxes like a good Republican, and Nixon, when he was president, sounded like a good Democrat when he declared, “We’re all Keynesians now.”   

Today, the nation cannot survive such electoral treason. The partisan divisions are too stark.  Can you imagine Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi making like Ronald Reagan and Speaker Tip O’Neill; kicking back with a bottle of bourbon, swapping Irish jokes and ironing out disagreements? Ha! Bipartisanship is dead.    

Soon, the two-party system could be dead, too. The Democrats learned from their mistakes in the 2016 presidential election, and they will learn from the 2020 election that they have to steal more than just the top of the ticket. We’ll see how well they learned that lesson in the 2022 elections. If those elections give the Democrats control of Congress, expect the Democrats to try to do the following, which is only a partial SJW wish list: 

-eliminate the anachronistic Electoral College;  -politicize/neutralize/pack the Supreme Court;   -confiscate guns;   -lower the voting age to 16;   -open our borders; -statehood for D.C. and Puerto Rico. 

America will then become a one-party state. Fortunately, that party, the Democrat Party, has enough divisions that the country should avoid becoming a dictatorship. However, history is replete with examples of militant minorities gaining control of political movements. In fact, SJW militants aren’t a minority, but a MAJORITY in many places, e.g., Portland, OR, where the top two contenders for Mayor, the incumbent and an even more radical opponent, received 86 percent of the vote.   

Also, the Congressional elections saw AOC and three SJW Muslims (MUSLIMS!) reelected, all with comfortable majorities: AOC 72%, Illan Omar 65%, Rashida Tlaib 80%, and Andre Carson, the underachiever of the group, with ‘only’ 60%.  

If Biden is actually sworn in as president, the ‘tell’ will be to what extent the SJW succeed in persecuting their political and ideological enemies. Lenin persecuted the kulaks; Hitler the Jews, Pol Pot the urbanites, to name a few earlier Social Justice Warriors. Are Trump supporters going to have their homes burned to the ground? Are fossil fuel executives going to prison? 

You don’t think that sort of thing can happen? Sadly, history has proven Voltaire correct: “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.”  If this sort of “justice” is allowed free rein, it will prove that government of, by, and for the people, could not long endure.

Conjectures on stolen elections

Conjectures on stolen elections by Peter Burrows 12/6/20 

I hate to date myself, but I first voted in a presidential election back in 1960.  In that election, Kennedy defeated Nixon, thanks in part to Chicago’s Mayor Daley, who waited to see how many votes JFK needed from Cook County to carry the state. Cook County went for Kennedy by a massive 450,000 votes, giving Kennedy the state by only 9,000 votes.  

It turned out that Kennedy might have won even without Illinois. However, also throw out Texas and Nixon would have won. Kennedy won Texas with 50.52 percent of the vote, and by only 46,000 votes, “pocket change,” so to speak, for his running mate, Lyndon Johnson, who knew a thing or two about stealing elections in Texas. 

Nixon didn’t think he had much chance of overturning the results in both states, so he quickly conceded and put on his statesman mantle, although behind the scenes he encouraged efforts to challenge the results. In hindsight, he should have raised Hell and taken both Texas and Illinois to court.  Texas may have been a dry hole, but Illinois could have seen some convictions.  

William Rodgers, then Attorney General, was both a friend of Nixon’s and an experienced criminal prosecutor. (He would later become Nixon’s Secretary of State.) He certainly would have been a valuable ally had Nixon thought the fight was worth the effort. Then-president Eisenhower, who didn’t especially like Nixon, even urged him to openly contest the results, but Nixon didn’t.   

Regardless, Kennedy won the election and no Democrat ever paid a penalty for stealing votes, a precedent that seems to be continuing today.  In my opinion, that is the real negative legacy of Nixon, a RINO I voted for because the alternatives were always worse.  

It wasn’t long before JFK charmed the socks off the nation (and Marylyn Monroe, amongst other damsels,) which I think helped his unqualified younger brother, Ted, win a seat in the Senate in 1962, where he did damage to the nation for the next 47 years, long after his brother’s assassination.  

In hindsight, Kennedy’s assassination was a turning point in American politics, one from which the nation has never recovered. That’s because it made LBJ the president, and LBJ was one smart operator; unprincipled, but smart.  He knew how to use a “crisis” to his Party’s advantage: in came Medicare for the older voters and The Great Society welfare programs for the poor voters, especially the black voters.  

Allegedly, he famously said, “I’ll have them niggers voting Democrat for 200 years.” Some 50+ years later, it looks like the old bastard knew what he was doing. To illustrate, Trump got over 12 percent of the black vote in the latest election, and while that was up from the 8 percent he received four years ago, it was nowhere near the 32 percent Nixon got in 1960. That’s right: 32 percent. 

(I should note that even though LBJ commonly used the “n” word, he did not allow his racism to override his political judgement.,)  

Even then, the Democrats were winning a majority of the black vote, in spite of being the party of some pretty blatant, politically well-entrenched racists, such as Senators Willliam Fulbright and Robert Byrd. This may have been what inspired the “Southern Strategy” of the Republican Party, which sought to appeal to the Southern white voter, much as the Democrats were doing.  

LBJ, being smarter than the Republicans, turned the tables on them and implemented a nation-wide strategy that has delivered huge majorities of the black vote for the Democrats ever since.  LBJ may not have been the father of identity politics, but he turned Uncle Sam into its rich uncle.  

He may have also been responsible for setting in motion the anti-Americanism so prevalent in our youth today. After The Gulf of Tonkin resolution in 1964, he turned Vietnam into an American war, which radicalized young adults all over the country, especially on college campuses.  Some of those kids went on to become college professors, where they propagated their disillusionment with America. 

(Ironically, all the campus unrest disappeared in 1973 when NIXON eliminated the draft.) 

Consequently, patriotism has joined the evils of racism, sexism and genderism as something to be eradicated, along with all the other sins of America. If, like the election of 1960, the Democrats are allowed to steal what votes they can, they will open the final chapter to the end of America:   

The Supreme Court will be expanded to reflect political realities, not outdated principles; the anachronistic Electoral College will be done away with, to be replaced by popular vote totals; the racist-inspired Constitution will be rewritten to provide social justice for minorities; laws will be passed to bring to justice Islamophobes, climate deniers, gun owners and other enemies of the people; and on and on. 

I hope I’m wrong.. My two-bit analysis is pretty superficial, but I think the slide into totalitarianism is as undeniable as a facemask law. If this keeps up, someday the Progressives will build statues honoring thier revolutionary heroes, Mayor Richard Daly and Lee Harvey Oswald.
