11. Underestimation
I was aware of many of these things before the election. They were in the back of my mind, but what was in the forefront was....they wouldn't dare do it again. I couldn't wrap my mind around this possibility. It would just be too transparent after 2000. I also falsely assumed there were checks in place, that others would be watching. But the rope I clung to was that they just wouldn't be so bold as to do it again. I was wrong. They were that bold and confident they could get away with it again. In fact, they were so bold that they did more than they did in 2000. They padded the popular vote, and stole more than one state this time.
It's mind-boggling. I know it, you know it, millions know it, and millions more probably suspect or question it, but who's sitting in the White House? How can this be?
I checked out the site you got the map from every day during the campaign. It was the one I considered most reliable because of the methods he employed. He still has all the data he used, but I'm sure you know that already.
With all the evidence that is out there, including the fine work you have done, I don't see how anyone can deny what happened. Circumstantial evidence has put many an accused behind bars. What has been collected since Nov. 2 is a huge amount of evidence, even if some consider it circumstantial and not a "smoking gun". Yet, the dimwit and his dangerous crew are still strutting their stuff. It's a true head-shaker for me, even knowing what I do about the extent of their reach.
I guess today is one of my impatient days, when I feel like things just aren't moving fast enough. I feel like going up to everyone I meet, slappin' them upside the head, and screaming in their face, "Wake up, dummy! Get your act together, and do something."
Things are coming along. It's just so slow, time-consuming, and to quote the dimwit, "hard work". We can't let up the pressure on *&Co, or stop giving our continual support to those that are doing things in Congress.
As frustrating as it is, I refuse to give up. What has happened isn't right, wasn't meant to be, endangers our country and others around the world, and just isn't tolerable.
