Just took the advice in this post and contacted several politicians [I put this up on Facebook as well here]:
Subject line: A note of concern from Minnesota
This is the second time in my life that I have taken the time to write elected officials in our nation, and my first time writing state representatives. But the apparent fraud in the 2020 presidential election demands action. I think you have heard the arguments made, seen the footage, and read the articles. Just take, for example:
-The Fulton County tapes.
-More votes that voters in Pennsylvania.
-The discoveries regarding things like dead and out-of-state voters by Matthew Braynard (enough verifiable data by itself to swing the election)
-Deleted logs and error rates of 68% in the only Dominion machines permitted to be audited in the United States (Antrim County, Michigan).
-Numerous examples of eyewitness testimony of wrongdoing.
-Wildly improbable statistics, put forth perhaps most conservatively by the Dec. 21st paper shared by John R. Lott, Jr., Ph.D.
-And of course: the general stonewalling when it comes to getting basic signature audits in regard to mail-in votes and forensic audits of voting machines that we know, in at least one case, should cause everyone to doubt.
This last point sticks out the most for me. Where is the transparency? Where is the willingness to let the opposition investigate basic, verifiable facts and draw general conclusions? Evidence does not find itself, after all. The general lack of trust in the media, politicians, and government institutions cannot help but grow and fester under such circumstances.
As an intelligent American who has tried to follow the post-election developments closely – and one who works in the liberal world of academia at that – I find it absolutely devastating that such things can be happening in a country like ours. Those in authority should do something!
This is why I write this morning: In all of the states where we see disturbing signs of election irregularities and fraud, aren’t the state legislatures controlled by Republicans? How is the right thing to do not to announce the illegitimate nature of your states’ election results and remove the current electors that have been chosen? My understanding is that there are a handful of Republicans in these states who have chosen other electors who are set to vote for Trump but that they are not supported by the Senate and House majorities.
I am saddened by all of this. I am also deeply upset and angry. Please know that I am not angry at you alone. I am angered by all the unpaid bills that are coming due that have put you in this situation. If what this judge says is true (https://www.theepochtimes.com/former-wisconsin-judge-our-court-system-has-been-deeply-intimidated-by-the-left_3625725.html), I suspect I know why it might be hard for you or others to act. Still, who will fight if not you? If not now, when?
I do not envy your charge and calling here, but the right thing to do seems obvious. Best as I can tell, people like you have the authority and power to resolve this – and should! It grieves me that if you do not, democracy is, by all appearances, dead. All our future elections would be suspect, and I don’t know how anyone in their right mind would consider voting Republican again. It would make more sense to look for a good king.
