This past Friday, I posted an article discussion how I think the founders would respond to the coronavirus situation. Today I want to hear from you about how you think the founders would respond to the election situation.

I keep bouncing back and forth between articles about the coronavirus and the election results because they seem to be the only two topics the collective cares about. If I had my choice, I’d ignore more of that current squabbling and focus exclusively on the Constitution and the founders and theory, but that’s not exciting enough right now, not when there are pressing matters at hand that we are all experiencing.

So, today I’m opening up the floor for you all to discuss, let loose and debate the situation going on in Washington. Do you believe there was election fraud? If so, why? If not, why?

Clearly, the past Wednesday is an example that a large swatch of American do believe their is fraud and a massive underhanded attempt by other elites to completely upend the U.S. Constitution and liberty.

Do you believe people are being pushed to their limits on the conservative side of the spectrum? What happens if the “right” snaps? What are you seeing in your towns and cities?

How would the founders handle this situation? Put yourself in their shoes. What’s their solution the current problems we are facing? Are they different than your solutions? Is there advise we can take from the founders about how to move forward?

Please, sound off. We need open discussion. We need respectful discussion and we need to know what is going on with each other across this country.

  1. Absolutely. But the question is much more complex. The term “election fraud” has become a term di nor by our media systems. In order to properly reply to your question, I answer with another question. What is the definition of “election fraud”?

    1. C. McMasters Ph.D.

      That’s a question I don’t have a very good answer to as I believe it’s different for everyone. I mean any tampering with the vote count, whether that be an individual voting more than once in person, intentional loss of ballots in the mail system, intentional loss of ballots while being counted etc.

      1. they fought during small pox epidemic and if they were found guilty of fraud they would have been either sent to prison or shot for treason ,,,,Our country has been at a declared war for 20 years now ,so should be the same today

  2. Bob Manderville

    Well our founding fathers not only disfranchised women and people of color from voting but unless you owned land you couldn’t vote either so asking what they would have said is moot. The closest we can determine what their thinking might be would be their numerous quotes against factions I suppose and the one I find most appropriate is John Adams :

    “There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under it’s leaders, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.”
