Had our Senior bowling league today… how’d I do?… don’t ask.
One topic related to this very, very strange Presidential election that has not been mentioned is the question of Legitimacy. The legitimacy of the election, does the person taking the oath of office have a legitimate claim to the power of the office. And quite a lot of power that it is.
A comment I read today…
I actually care little about who wins, but very much that whoever wins is actually the legitimate choice and is seen to be the legitimate choice. I don’t understand the desire to sweep everything under the carpet. I want a fully legitimate and successful Biden presidency. Or Trump presidency. I don’t want a paralyzed POTUS who has no legitimacy and who spends every night wondering if his joint chiefs will do a coup in the night while he’s sleeping.
Hold Third World elections, have Third World problems!
In my town the property tax just went up for me by $650 a year. That’s not supposed to happen unless a properly conducted election is run in town to “Override” the state law that limits the amount of property tax increases to 2.5% per year. That didn’t happen. Oh, there was an “Vote”, but it wasn’t properly conducted to the letter of the law. There was no insert in any of the town’s billing statements sent out notifying the residents of the date of the vote of the override. There were no public notices or signs put up to notify the towns citizens, except for one sign put up at an intersection in town… for four hours between the hours of Midnight and 4AM. That makes the tax an illegitimate tax. In my mind at least. Seems that the only recourse will be to vote the mayor out of office. But the damage the mayor of a medium size American town can do in office pales in comparison to the damage of a illegitimate American President.
A illegitimate Biden/Harris Administration can be counted on the raise taxes, mandate California style business and work rules (AB5 ring a bell? Look it up) Abortion on demand made into a Federal Mandate. And to pay back their puppet masters, new wars! Plenty of new wars.
