The GOP doesn’t need to self-destruct…

Look, we get it. This election was stolen from President Donald Trump.

The evidence is compelling. It’s overwhelming. It’s convincing.

But here’s the problem with ‘rectifying’ what’s been done: The choices are extremely limited, and both would tear our country apart.

  1. Secession.
  2. Calling for a military coup.
  3. Some combo of those two ideas.

Patriots have other options — as do red states — when it comes to opposing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ radical agenda.

Granted, these measures arguably could lead to secession at some point:

  1. Nullification – “just say no” to the most radical policies (like blue states did to President Trump when he was simply trying to enforce laws like those regarding immigration).
  2. Legal challenges — Trump and the GOP-controlled GOP Senate did put a significant number of quasi-constitutionalists on the federal bench (and Supreme Court), even if they don’t have the gonads to rule on the election fraud cases.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), a U.S. Army combat vet and Harvard graduate, appears to recognize and understand the current political ground on which we are deployed.

Not that this makes President Trump very happy.

Cotton said Monday he would not be joining the dozen or so GOP Senate colleagues in challenging electoral vote tallies from several battleground states that unconstitutionally changed their voting rules ahead of the election.

And why? Because he knows it’s a fruitless endeavor.

Cotton argued that Senators opposing the results would 'establish unwise precedents' in future elections.

'[O]bjecting to certified electoral votes won't give him a second term—it will only embolden those Democrats who want to erode further our system of constitutional government,' Cotton wrote in a statement explaining his decision.

It’s hard to disagree with that.

The President did, however.

How can you certify an election when the numbers being certified are verifiably WRONG. You will see the real numbers tonight during my speech, but especially on JANUARY 6th. @SenTomCotton Republicans have pluses & minuses, but one thing is sure, THEY NEVER FORGET!” he tweeted.

He added: “The ‘Surrender Caucus’ within the Republican Party will go down in infamy as weak and ineffective ‘guardians’ of our Nation, who were willing to accept the certification of fraudulent presidential numbers!”

This is not helpful, Mr. President. We love you — you know that — but this isn’t going to change anything.

It will, however, lead to the crack-up of our party. 

And no GOP voter should want that.

The better strategy at this point for Republican-led states is to essentially give the Biden administration and its Democrat/deep state enablers a big, fat middle finger when it comes to the most radical parts of their agenda.

And for GOP legislatures to learn this lesson: You do not have to surrender your authority, under the Constitution, to be the sole arbiters of election law, rules, and procedures in your states.

So don’t ever do it again — under any circumstances (COVID, meteor showers, alien invasion) — and this sad, sordid episode in our country’s history won’t happen again.

Is Joe Biden's Inflation Going to Destroy our Economy and Break the Back of Consumers?

Are backed-up supply chains adding to the dilemma of bad policy?
