Fight against electoral fraud is a fight against totalitarianism
Trump's efforts to expose it are noble

President Trump and his legal team are exposing a massive electoral fraud in Democrat-controlled cities in swing states. This looks like 1960 all over again, when Chicago Mayor Richard Daley stole the presidential election for John Kennedy. The difference in 2020 is the theft took place in more than one city, which makes the statistical irregularities more glaring.
Democrats have been committing fraud in large cities for many years, and we will lose our liberty if we fail to confront it. We are fortunate Mr. Trump is doing so for the integrity of this election and future ones, starting with the Jan. 5 Senate runoffs in Georgia.
Calls for Mr. Trump to concede stem from the Democratic need to avoid discovery — the process where evidence is gathered in legal proceedings. Democrats wish to protect the fraud to facilitate a one-party state.
Democratic media partners are applying pressure on congressional Republicans to join them in saying there was no fraud, and that the election is decided. Regardless of their personal opinions of Mr. Trump, Republican congressmen should not join colleagues like Mitt Romney. He has a personal animus for Mr. Trump, and he is helping Democratic media sweep fraud under the rug.
Republicans should stand and applaud Mr. Trump’s efforts to discover and reveal the truth.
Richard Nixon believed contesting the fraud in Chicago would hurt his future political chances. Nixon put personal ambition above national interests by not denouncing and fully exposing the 1960 fraud. This helped facilitate urban election corruption that has continued for 60 years.
This includes dead people, non-residents and aliens voting. Add to that the counting of unverified ballots, violations of equal protection, exclusion of Republican poll watchers and software issues with voting machines.
A recent Rasmussen poll of 1,000 Americans found 47% believe Democrats stole votes or destroyed pro-Trump ballots. As Rudy Giuliani laid out last week, there is much evidence to support this. In Pennsylvania, there are affidavits saying 682,770 ballots were not inspected but still entered the vote tally. In Wisconsin, 100,000 ballots did not have applications as required by state law. In Georgia, many voters did not provide signatures, as is required by state law.
In the 1960 election, neither side threatened our liberty; the nation’s fundamental values and structures were not going to change. That is no longer true. Democrats have demonstrated totalitarian values.
After refusing to accept the 2016 results, Democrats now denounce and demonize as enemies all who claim fraud. Democratic leaders, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, New York Democrat, have called for creating lists of Trump supporters to be punished. They threaten, harass and defame electoral officials and others who do not cooperate with the fraud.
Democrats and their media partners use information warfare to suppress electoral fraud, which shows their contempt for Trump voters and democracy. Harvard law Professor Alan Dershowitz says challenging the election is the Trump team’s constitutional right.
Joe Biden’s team claims Mr. Trump’s lack of concession harms national security and efforts to fight COVID-19. Such claims are a thinly disguised distraction. Nothing is more important to a democracy than confidence in elections. Voters for losing candidates need to know the election was fair.
Democratic plans — ending the filibuster and increasing the number of U.S. Supreme Court justices — pave the way for a totalitarian state. They are close to creating it. If both Democrats were to win the Georgia elections, Democrats would control the Senate. They would be able to execute their socialist agenda of totalitarianism.
To do so, they need to repeat the fraud of November’s election in Atlanta in January. Mr. Trump’s efforts to expose it are making it more difficult for Democrats to replicate the fraud.
Democrats might have wiped enough of their fingerprints off the crime scene to get away with this. Even if they do not face explicit penalties, we need to shine as much sunlight as possible on the irregularities of the 2020 presidential election.
Republican bickering and calling for Mr. Trump to concede facilitates the totalitarian state. Everyone who loves liberty should support Mr. Trump’s critical efforts to expose the electoral fraud. Liberty also needs the two Republicans to prevail in Georgia on Jan. 5.
Republican control of the Senate is crucial but insufficient to impede socialism. Democrats know their policies will make it impossible for them to win elections in 2022 and 2024 without resorting to fraud. We must create safeguards against them.
The perpetrators knew it would be challenging to prove such a multi-faceted fraud within the short time between the election and the meeting of the Electoral College. Certification of Joe Biden will bury the issue. Democrats will have gotten away with an obvious fraud because of insufficient time and a subsequent corrupt government.
Such a government can only lead to totalitarianism or violent upheaval.
Mr. Trump is doing a tremendous service to our republic. He is fighting back to expose how city-machine politicians steal elections from Republicans. For those who believe that sounds like a conspiracy theory, think Chicago 1960.
