Something To Think About…

I’m not one to give dictators and murderers any credibility by quoting them, but in the context of what has been happening in this election, i.e., “early voting”, Minnesota’s weird goings-on, and the like, Josef Stalins’s observation seems quite relevant to me in the day we live.

“The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything”.

It’s sort of surprising that he made that statement  because I don’t believe any voting ever happened under his watch.  Of course, he could have been making an observation about our process.

Check out David Lewis Schaefer’s column on early voting over on National Review.  He makes some very relevant and thoughtful points. You can read it here.
