Does “democracy” involve the FBI selecting our leaders?

Does “democracy” involve the FBI selecting our leaders?

We hear so much from the Left about “democracy” these days but, tellingly, they very rarely define it. They can’t. For example, the recent Dobbs decision – returning control of abortion regulations to the directly-elected legislatures of the 50 states – is strictly speaking the democratic move.

Something even stranger: in what sort of “democracy” does a federal law enforcement agency decide who wins the highest offices in the land?

I’m not giving you a hypothetical, Save Jerseyans. For all intents and purposes, that’s precisely what happened in 2020. The “Kraken” was always a distraction. The real fraud – in addition to the Democrats’ hijinks with mail-in ballots and the messenger ballot system – could be found not in a software conspiracy but arising from the very highest levels of federal law enforcement.

Here’s just a partial list of what we now know:

There’s more, of course (we didn’t even broach the infamous Steele Dossier), but even a very rudimentary overview of the relevant timeline is deeply disturbing.

You also need to keep the following in mind:

A 2021 survey discovered roughly one-third of Americans get their news from Facebook on a routine basis. It’s hardly a stretch to conclude that the Media/Big Tech coalition’s decision to kill the laptop story likely exerted a significant impact on the closing days of Election 2020, yet another election decided by a relatively small number of votes spread across a handful of U.S. states.

State police directly intefering in the electoral process AND influencing outcomes is something we’d expect to find in a history book detailing the crimes of Lenin, Stalin, the Bolsheviks, and ultimately the KGB.

In a “democracy” such as ours?

Are we comfortable with the FBI and a handful of media/social media oligarchs deciding which information voters are permitted to consume and, in so doing, effectively deciding who gets to be a “blue check” influencer? Congressman? President?

If I’m running for Congress this year as a Republican, then you could be damn sure I’d be demanding that my opponent define “democracy.” I think some American voters might be surprised by the Democrats’ inability to provide a satisfactory answer.
