We may be in for the biggest surprise in an election since 1824. That election, there was not a winner decided by the voters. The House of Representatives decided it. I think that might be what the Democrats have in store for us this time as well. However, the rules concerning the presidency have changed sine 1824 with the passing of the 20th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1933.
I believe the Democrats are setting the stage so that there will not be a clear winner on November 3rd. Let’s look at the facts. They are running a candidate that obviously has some mental health decline. There is no way that the Democrat Party is putting their hope in Joe Biden. They also don’t have a good choice for vice-president (that’s why one hasn’t been named yet). They are pushing for mail-in voting, which will be rattled with corruption. There is no way to verify that your vote will be counted. And, you know there will be truckloads of ballots that, for some reason, are misplaced or lost. Plus, there are going to be an avalanche of lawsuits filed on November 4th from both sides. This scenario is just what the Democrats want. Let me tell you why.
The U.S. Constitution, Amendment 20, Section 3 reads:
If, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term of the President, the President elect shall have died, the Vice President elect shall become President. If a President shall not have been chosen before the time fixed for the beginning of his term, or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified; and the Congress may by law provide for the case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President elect shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President, or the manner in which one who is to act shall be selected, and such person shall act accordingly until a President or Vice President shall have qualified.
So, suppose the Democrats can keep both Trump and Biden from qualifying for the presidency. In that case, the House of Representatives (Congress in this context is the House of Representatives) will choose who will serve as President. It can be anyone they want. With all the civil unrest and violence that I predicted in my post titled “Elections Have Consequences,” they will want to act fast and decisively. Who would they choose? Your guess is a good as mine. But, I can guarantee it will be someone who will want to destroy the USA.
One thought on “Election Surprise”
Keep in mind that if no candidate receives the required 270 electoral votes the House of Representatives picks the winner in accordance with the Constitution.
