The False Debate Between Left and Right Part Two

“Election officials in Wisconsin’s largest county accused observers for President Donald Trump on Saturday of seeking to obstruct a recount of the presidential results — in some instances by objecting to every ballot tabulators pulled to count.” As the recount and court challenges continue for the 2020 Presidential Election, it is another stark reminder, and for me — confirmation that there is no debate to be had between the “Left” and “Right.”

Individuals I respect and consider friends who happen to identify with the “Right” actually claim to believe the election was stolen.  This situation is frustrating to no end.  Real conspiracies pass without a mention, e.g., WTC 7, why did it collapse, and there is video proof to ponder.  Yet, someone can say the election was stolen, call our whole system into question not provide sufficient evidence, and I am supposed to believe people actually believe that. Trust is one thing, but the president’s past statements prove that what he says cannot always be trusted or taken seriously. “I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute,” Trump said. “One minute! And is there a way we can do something, by an injection inside or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that. So, that you’re going to have to use medical doctors with, but it sounds interesting to me.”

If the people who claim to believe the election has been stolen actually believe it, then it is best President-elect Biden govern as such and avoid trying to appease or reach them.

Suppose they don’t believe the election is stolen but are attempting to execute the act they are alleging. In that case, there is no hope to reach them, and it is best for President-elect Biden to govern as such.

I will absolutely continue to engage with my friends and those that identify with the “Right.” The conversation is more for the kinship and bonding than the exchange of ideas and growth, because deep inside, I know there is no debate to be had.
