Joe Lockhart, a former White House spokesman is advising the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee not to debate President Trump. The stated reason, according to Lockhart is that “Trump has made more than 20,000 misleading or false statements according to the Washington Post. It’s a fool’s errand to enter the ring with someone who can’t follow the rules.” The Democrats have done their best to hide Biden as much as possible. The few times he has gone to events attendance has been very sparse and his speeches have been brief and scripted. He has taken few questions and they have been softball-type questions at best. The candidate’s team is minimizing the opportunities for Biden to make his famous gaffes. President Trump is right when he says the Democrats are attempting to steal the election. First they hide their candidate and secondly they are pushing for total mail in balloting. We have had absentee ballots for 150 years but there is a difference between absentee ballots and mail in ballots. Absentee ballots are requested by registered voters and a specific reason must be given for the absentee ballot. Most often this type of ballot is utilized for military personnel who are deployed or diplomats in foreign lands. They are also used by those with illnesses or handicaps who find it difficult to reach a polling place. Mail in ballots are sent out in bulk according to voter rolls that may be outdated. Ballots may be sent to homes where voters have moved or died. The mail service is fallible and ballots may be lost before or after votes are placed. There are numerous steps along the path of mail in voting in which voter fraud can and does occur. In a close race the final outcome of an election may not be known for days or weeks until all the mailed votes have been verified and counted.
Another serious concern with this year’s presidential election is the fact that early voting in many states will begin before the first debate takes place. The first of the three scheduled debates is not until September 29. It would be advantageous for voters to hear the candidates debate before making their choice for the most important office in the free world. Thanks to the pandemic, Joe Biden has been able to hide his rapidly declining physical and mental abilities. If this were a normal election cycle Biden would be expected to be at multiple campaign stops and appearances a day. In reality he barely appears capable of a short speech. The Democrats know he is incapable of debating President Trump and his team is doing their best to somehow get him out of them. This is a serious time and we need someone who is tough enough to withstand the constant attacks that Trump has withstood the past 3 1/2 years. Biden, should he be elected, will be a figurehead and others in his administration will be running the socialist agenda that the Sanders/AOC wing of the party is pushing. Under a Biden presidency be prepared to give up your money (taxes), your guns, and a host of jobs as we return to the flood of companies moving offshore.
