Reading that has sure cast a gloomy cloud over my day. When Buddy gets around to saying he watched/heard “several State committee meetings on the subject” (of the stolen election) that convinced him it was fact, I had to really wonder how he got to this place in his head? I wonder too, why I believe so differently from him and countless others who believe the election was fraudulent? I mean, I really think these people are ridiculous, and sadly I suspect they would think the same about me.
There are many things in history that are nearly impossible to prove as they are happening.
One example is when there are classified documents that become declassified over time and revelations are made about things that people suspected but couldn't prove.
Or someone covers their tracks well enough as was done for the last year about potential origins of the Covid virus where the truth is slowly rising to the surface.
But people still have a sense of what might and might not be true. Tuskagee, JFK assassination, 9/11, WMD in Iraq - they were ALL surrounded by many controversies.
Like the Russian collusion last year. So many people were totally convinced that it was true, that Trump was colluding and he was condemned for 4 years in a court of public opinion. I personally didn't believe it to be true but didn't care because as I said they'd sort it out.
And now it comes out that it was a smear campaign with no substance and no proof. Where is the accountability? Where is the justice?
In similar manner, WE don't really REALLY know what happened behind the curtain on this election. Some may know but they're playing their cards close.
What we DO know is that there is a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes and the truth will eventually come out [hopefully] just like it did with the accusations of Russian collusion and other things that were pushed to be true but were found to be false.
What we DO know is that the most powerful thing is the media and that the media swings public opinion like nothing else and if most of the media swings one way that will change the outcome of public opinion. I think it's possible that this is what happened with the election.
And the more you try to suppress it the greater the opposition will be, whether true or not. That's just psychology 101
