The Big Lie

What value is there in members of the GOP continuing to push “The Big Lie”?

The Big Lie is the notion that the 2020 election was stolen, that Trump actually was the winner of the 2020 election and that Joe Biden is not the president. There’s not been a single iota of evidence to suggest that there was widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election, let alone enough to flip the results of any county or states votes in Trump’s favor.

In fact, many if not most of these audits, whether it be by a Republican or Democrat has actually found that Biden not only won the respective area but has won the area by even MORE votes than the original count.

Is It not also interesting that Republicans and Trump supporters will claim that there was fraud in the election in terms of the Presidential election but not in terms of everything else even though they were all on exactly the same ballots?

Is it not also interesting that not a single Republican member of congress has called into question their own positions in terms of election fraud?

And isn’t it even more interesting that all of these claims of voter fraud are in areas where Donald Trump specifically lost?

Hmm…

The truth is that there was never any fraud, let alone enough to change the result of the 2020 election.

Joe Biden won because he got more votes, it’s plain and simple.

Joe Biden is the duly elected President of the United States.

These are the facts, the whole facts, and nothing but the facts.

So what value is there in continuing to push “The Big Lie” you might ask?

Well first off, Trump supporters are more or less the most gullible group of people on the planet. Not only do they continue to believe in “The Big Lie”, they also have hand over foot been victims of Trump and his sycophants continuous grifting.

Donald Trump has essentially swindled millions of dollars from his supporters since leaving the White House and that grift shows no signs of stopping.

The GOP has latched onto his name and brand because they know they can continue to raise money hand over foot by having a Trump buzzword or catchphrase.

His followers are seemingly unaware of the fact that they paid completely for this grift, this false promise that he was somehow going to be reinstated as President which never would have happened. There are ZERO mechanisms for reinstating a President who lost an election.

Were you not paying attention every time they said “Oh, it will be in January, Oh it will be in March, No it’s August for sure”.

Trump plays on and relies on low-information voters to maintain his relevance. The majority of his base are low information voters. That’s not an insult to his base as much as it is an insult to the idea of America. We have a decent percentage of people living in this country who for one reason or another don’t take the time to educate themselves, to do research, and to question what it is that they are believing or spewing from their mouths, yet these same people have the balls to claim that Trump is going to comeback as President any day now, or that the election was stolen, that Hillary Clinton was going to go to prison, that horse medicine, bleach, or sunlight would cure Covid, and that Democrats were a satanic cult of baby eating and child trafficking individual’s operating out of a pizza restaurant.

You can’t win with these people. No matter how absolutely insane what they have to say sounds, it’s just not worth arguing or debating at this point.

And when you try to engage in good faith in a debate with these people, they move the goalposts.

Their points are not based in objective reality, they aren’t based in facts, and at times some of what they are saying which is very concerning feels like it’s coming from a negative mental health place.

The Big Lie as it has come to be known has shown us just how ridiculously gullible, conspiratorial, irrational, and cult like people in this country can be.

It’s dangerous and destructive yet sad.

As I’ve said before the biggest threat to American democracy is Americans.

I don’t know how we are going to unplug these people, educate these people, or bring them into reality.

Time will tell if they will forever be stuck in November 3, 2020.
