Mr. President, Concede The Election But Not The Fight

I suspect that those who are in favor of doing away with the Electoral College haven’t really thought it through.

Come on, man! If we abolish the Electoral College where will future generations of electricians go to learn how to fix our wiring?

All kidding aside, today state electors in all 50 states and the District of Columbia made the final determination of the 2020 election: Joe Biden is now officially the President-elect.

That doesn’t mean that everyone has to personally like, or even accept, the result.

We all know that there are still some folks who still haven’t accepted the fact that Donald Trump is currently the duly elected POTUS – and President Trump will continue to be President Trump until January 20, 2021.

It also doesn’t mean that there wasn’t election malfeasance and fraud. There was. No doubt.

What the decision by the Electoral College today means is that the Constitutional process for deciding who our nation’s President will be for the next four years (starting January 20, 2021) is now over.

President Trump should begin the transition period and he should do so with grace and respect for our system of governance, even though the ‘other side’ refused to do that when Trump was elected.

The President has an opportunity here to be an example of how to do it right, something the Democrats and the previous administration did not do and have not done.

He fought the good fight and exercised his rights to contest the election results. He lost.

Now it’s time for the President and his supporters to focus on the next chapter, which is going to be monumentally important for the future of our country, from outside the White House and the Office of President.

Trump should use his remaining days in office to do everything he can to continue helping our country move forward.

He should concede the election.

But he should never concede the battle to expose corruption and fight the forces that are trying to “fundamentally change America”. And neither should any of us.

  1. Tryon, I appreciate what you do, but I am disappointed in your stance. It’s not noble to roll over in the face of evil. We have electoral votes that were made for Trump also. Do you have a solution to ever having a real election again? Maybe you’ll change your mind, because this is the big one.

    The swamp dwellers must be pulled out of their DC lairs by the scruff of their necks, tried, and locked up for treason. Once an election of this magnitude is stolen in plain sight, I fear there will be no more victories for patriots at the ballot box.

    No, NO CONCESSION! Once they get into power, this all goes away and nobody gets answers or justice. Biden and gang can do alot of damage to America in four bloody years. NO CONCESSION, WE FIGHT ALL THE WAY. Bastards! How dare they mess with the most fundamental of American rights, the right to free and fair elections! And it looks like they’ve been doing this for decades! It stops in 2020!


  4. Rick I certainly respect your views & concerns.
    However, I hope and pray you don’t have that same give up attitude that as our City Commissioner. Not a good attitude to have when Democracy is on the line !
    And you know what happens when the enemy sees Weakness !!!
