Thoughts on the 2020 election

I have been putting this off until more votes were counted, but here are my thoughts on the 2020 election here in Indiana, in Monroe County and for President.

In Indiana, a lot of people were expecting a different result in the governor’s race. Despite the fact that a lot of conservatives were unhappy with Eric Holcomb’s policies surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and there were longtime Republicans (including Republican elected officials) supporting Libertarian candidate Donald Rainwater, Holcomb ran about even with the other two Republicans running statewide, Todd Rokita and Donald Trump. Rainwater did take votes, but not from Holcomb. He took votes from the Democratic candidate, Woody Myers. That even appeared to be the case in Monroe County, which is heavily Democratic. Here are the numbers for those races, statewide and locally:

Blowing up the contract for political gain

The Washington Post published this statement on November 15, ignoring both the facts about this past election and basic principles of the system of government in these United States:

It is alarming that a candidate came so close to winning while polling more than 5 million fewer votes than his opponent nationwide.

Note: The margin is bigger now that more votes have been tabulated.

The size of Biden’s margin in the nationwide popular vote is entirely due to an enormous popular vote margin in California. It is simply dishonest to claim Biden won a huge popular vote margin nationwide when the vast majority of the margin came from a single state. It was even more stark four years ago, when Hillary Clinton “won” the nationwide popular vote due to a huge margin in California. If you take California’s votes away from both, Trump actually won the popular vote across the other 49 states.

Do not forget this bedrock truth

This tweet by Sohrab Ahmari is 100% correct.

A reminder that the Chinese Communist Party unleashed this plague on the world by delaying disclosure and jailing / silencing / disappearing early whistleblowers. We cannot forget this bedrock truth of the 21st century.

Also, the World “Health” Organization helped Communist China cover it up. Here is a Tweet from the official World “Health” Organization’s Twitter profile openly lying about transmission of the virus. You cannot say with any credibility that this is a conspiracy theory when the evidence from the World “Health” Organization itself is right out there in the open.

I have posted a screenshot on my own Twitter profile in case the liars and frauds at WHO delete their Tweet.

WHO is part of the United Nations.

WHO lied. People died.

Christians should honor Joe Biden as President

It is extremely likely that Joe Biden will take office as the 46th President of these United States on January 20. That is certainly not the outcome I wanted, and over 70 million people – including millions of Christians – voted with me to keep the incumbent in office. But will we submit to President Biden as someone that God has placed in authority over us, or will we treat him with contempt and scorn? Will we follow the commands of Scripture in Romans 13 and 1 Peter 2:13-17?

I understand the objections. Donald Trump was not treated with respect and was falsely called an illegitimate President for four years. George W. Bush was not treated with respect either. Biden has personally shown a nasty streak, especially with his morally indefensible remark that Mitt Romney – arguably the most milquetoast Republican nominee in decades – would put black people “back in chains.”

Jonah, Ninevah and having a sense of proportion

In the days following a hotly contested election, I have been thinking a lot about the book of Jonah. God called Jonah and ordered him to go to Nineveh and preach repentance. Jonah ran away because he knew God is “a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness.” He wanted Ninevah destroyed and was enraged when God spared the city.

Jonah was a patriot, and the Assyrian Empire were hated enemies of the nation of Israel. Plus, the Assyrian Empire was horrifyingly brutal. It was not uncommon for people to commit suicide when the Assyrian army approached, to escape torture – including being skinned alive.
