IT’S TIME TO GET PAST THE DENIAL by Ralph Bristol

by Ralph Bristol, posted from Facebook 12/6/2020 - With every loss, there is grief, and every period of grief includes a period of denial.  But, when the denial begins to interfere with protecting the future of the country, it’s time to get past the denial, for the good of the country. 

So far, there has been no evidence presented by President Trump or his legal team that has convinced any court or any Republican election official in the disputed states that Joe Biden and his supporters stole the presidential election by fraudulent means. 

President Trump’s legal team, led by Rudy Giuliani, who is billing the Trump campaign $20,000 a day for his services, has lost in every court in every state. Trump’s repeated accusations have been denied by every Republican in charge of elections in the contested states. 

Now, the two Republican Senate candidates in runoff elections in Georgia are being forced to choose between endorsing Trump’s accusations or losing support from many of Trump’s supporters. There has never been a more consequential “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” scenario for the future of the country, resting on the shoulders of two Republican candidates for U.S. Senate. 

If they both lose, which they surely will if many of President Trump’s Georgia loyalists refuse to vote in the runoff, Democrats will be in complete control of the federal government for at least the next four years and will permanently install as many new socialist programs as they can, which is likely to be more than any previous President, Democrat or Republican. The U.S. has never rescinded any of our many socialist programs, installed by mostly Democrat, but some Republican, administrations beginning with FDR. 

The Biden Administration will try to collect taxes from the rich to fund the next, and biggest, round of socialism, but he will largely fail. There will be new taxes on the rich, as a token gesture, but not nearly enough to fund the new round of socialist programs. 

Trillion dollar deficits, which became the norm under Presidents Obama and Trump, will grow to $2-3 trillion dollar deficits. The Treasury and the Fed, soon to be headed by the two biggest stimulus cheerleaders in the U.S., and will harvest the Magic Money Tree for all the fruit it can bear - and more. 

The game is over. Trump lost. If he cares about anything or anyone other than himself, he will soon find a way to concede defeat in a statesman-like fashion, accept the will of the people, but also urge Georgia voters to temper the will of the popular majority by voting to keep a Republican Senate.

  1. Wow, between the Lamar puff piece and now the unemployed Almighty Ralph Bristol chiming in, we now have the cowardly "Conservative" constituency on full display. It's not time to throw in the towel, it's time to press forward. Losses in the lower courts mean nothing, the Supreme Court is what matters. But the members of the Sheep Party aren't use to anything but rolling over.
