Because It’s True

Let’s get serious for a minute. About elections.

I know people who work the polls at election time. In fact, I am one of them. And I have always been impressed with how seriously the people around me take their tasks, how careful and conscientious they are about getting it right, and how the system is set up so that even if someone makes a mistake, or if someone tries to cheat or game the system, there is a paper trail that is clear and will always lead to the simple, numerical truth of who got more votes and who got fewer.

In the 2020 Presidential election, in Wisconsin, Biden got 20,682 more votes than Trump. Two piles of paper ballots and the Biden pile is higher by 20,682. Counted and recounted. Biden won. Trump lost.

Anyone who says there is voter fraud in my state is either ignorant or a liar. If you are ignorant, then you owe it to yourself and your fellow citizens to educate yourself. If you are a liar, you should be ashamed and you should knock that shit off.

Now, let’s make a little music.
