|President Gerald Ford's Inauguration on August 9th, 1974|
Here's what's I think is going on with Election 2020, so far, in my opinion.
It has boiled now down to the American People v. the Democratic and Republican Parties, who sadly appear to be in cahoots to impose an unelected President on the American people for the first time since Gerald Ford in 1974.
Like Joe Biden, Gerald Ford was well liked in Congress and by Big Business. He likewise promised to heal the country after the trauma of Watergate.
I lived through that period--and it was a disaster. The US lost the Vietnam War, our economy collapsed, and inflation rose to over 12 percent.
Ford was followed by Jimmy Carter, as American decline continued with more inflation and the loss of Iran to Islamic fundamentalists.
Compared to President Trump's track record the choice is obvious--President Trump has done an extremely good job with both the American economy and in foreign affairs. America is strong, relatively prosperous despite the COVID pandemic, and at peace.
If President Trump is forced out, look for renewed international decline--possibly a Chinese invasion of Taiwan for a start, a return of inflation, and new wars.
A very dangerous prospect.
The safe choice, therefore, is to stick with President Trump.
The dangerous choice would be to install Joe Biden against the wishes of the American people by force and fraud.
Neither Democrats nor Republicans currently enjoy majority support from the American people, according to pollsters.
Overall, 34% of registered voters identify as independents, 33% as Democrats and 29% as Republicans. The share of voters identifying as Republicans is now the same as it was in 2016, after having ticked down in 2017; Democratic identification is unchanged. Slightly fewer voters identify as independents than in 2017 (34% vs. 37%). See detailed tables.
What happened in this election was that the Democratic and Republican parties united to suppress pro-Trump Republicans and Independents--who are actually a plurality if not a majority of the American electorate.
Thus, the two major parties are putting their interests above the choice of American People, donors above voters--and in so doing blatantly violating constitutional rights of American Citizens no differently from Democratic politicians in the Jim Crow South...or the Congress which put Gerald Ford in the White House.
If Congress doesn't reject fraudulent electors resulting from the unfair and unfree state elections in 2020, it will lead to a Joe Biden presiding over a dramatic American decline -- instead of President Trump Making America Great Again.
