Millions of People Believe The Election Was Stolen

Over the past few months, we've all heard this over and over from right wing dipshit members of Congress and state governors. The statement is invariably used as justification for increasing the security of our election process. Of course their definition is to make the process more secure from those pesky people of color and other left leaning types. The dipshits are no longer claiming the election had actually been stolen, because anyone with half a brain would vilify them for being morons and/or liars. The cry is that millions of people believe it was.

What makes my head hurt is how they're claiming action is required because millions of people believe something happened that didn't happen at all. If the election was stolen from the Cheeto Faced Shit Gibbon, why didn't the Dems steal any state legislatures and flip them? If you're defrauding the poor Liar in Chief out of his office, why not go big? Also, why don't you tell them it didn't happen, moron? You know...the truth??? Fuck you, logic and reason. But I digress.

Rather than cause my readers and myself to have an aneurism by further discussing the moronic talking points, I want to provide some context with respect to the number of people who believe the lie, versus other not real things Americans believe in. All of the numbers below are from one or more legitimate studies, based upon responses by American adults. Let's see if there are any other misconceptions that require a more urgent response.

Our baseline: 30-50 million Republicans believe the outcome of the Presidential election was due to fraud, depending on your source and day of the week.

Again, what about others who aren't that bright? We need to address their concerns in a far more urgent matter versus our baseline group.*

- 1 million people (44 percent) aren't confident vaccines don't cause autism

- 85 million (33 percent) Americans are unable to identify a right protected in the first amendment to the Constitution. A similar amount were unable to name either of the three branches of the US government. If a third of Americans don't know jack about the Constitution, how the fuck would they know if an election had been stolen?

- 65 million (25 percent) believe the sun revolves around the earth.

- 52 million (20 percent) don't know hamburgers are made from beef.

Other groups that are smaller, but more disconcerting, should be addressed as well.

- 18 million (7 percent) think that chocolate milk comes from brown cows.

- million (5 percent) believe a master race of interstellar lizard people secretly run the US. Offers a good rationale for not learning the Constitution, I guess.

There are a lot of Americans impacted by these various concerns, for much longer than the dumb MAGA heads have been impacted by their most recent stupidity. What about them? More people don't know that hamburgers are made from beef than believe the election was stolen! What about the ??

If you're looking for some kernel of wisdom in this entry, I'm afraid you'll be disappointed. However, I will offer my own conclusion from the above data, which is Americans are fucking dumbasses who deserve to be ruled by the lizard people.

*Numbers based upon basis of 258 million adults in the US.

I so need to get laid so I can stop writing off the cuff material representing a thinly veiled 'get off my lawn'.

Okay, who was the asshat who disagreed with the Axolotl fact?

Over a period of decades the US governments have spent less and less (per student) on education. So it really isn't a surprise that many people are ignorant about many things including; our Constitution and subsequent laws etc (and how they apply to government functions). And they lack critical thinking abilities. This has made many people prime to be conned into believing many things that can be proven false.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

New2Midlo replies on 6/10/2021 3:09 pm:
You're right on target. Schools focus more on test scores than their students actually learning something. Those students tune out until something shiny comes along, but don't have the tools to determine whether the shiny thing is real or not.

Thanks for your comment.

From this side of the pond, the most idiotic aspect is that Trump (then, arguably, the most powerful person on the planet) was an "outsider", a victim of the "deep state" and not in a position to ensure that Federal entities under his authority could not prevent the Democrats from "stealing the election". The rest of the world has breathed a sigh that he can no concentrate on his golf and various civil and criminal trials related to his business empire and taxes. It is strange that Republican politicians fail to distance themselves from him, but he is clearly yesterday's man.

New2Midlo replies on 6/11/2021 10:37 am:
Trump has always been the super stud, when something went his way, but the victim when he screws the pooch. It's been his MO since long before he was elected.

Unfortunately, his base remains sufficiently large that a thumbs down from him can ruin a Republican's chances of reelection. Ultimately, they'll lose interest as he continues to fade into oblivion, unable to reclaim the office he was tossed out of. God, I hope that happens...

So happy I can say he is the x president. When he was in office I refused to call him my president. I would say your president to whoever I was talking to. Can't stand to even hear it's voice or look at it.

Humans are the most dangerous animals on earth.

If only animals had the ability to know when to keep away from us humans they would be better off.

You and me both. There were a few times I attempted to listen to a complete speech from him and OMG, he makes so many dives into the nonsensical that I won't listen to him either.

Well put a lot of time into this (what I fully expected to be a controversial) synopsis.

Thanks for the read!

It's been known for a long time when there is a large turn out Republicans lose. They don't represent a majority, they know that and they are now making a blatant attempt at minority rule. I am thinking this is the last gasp of the Republican party. If they fail now it could be decades before they regain any kind of power.

New2Midlo replies on 6/11/2021 10:45 am:
Huge turnout = Republicans losing the popular vote, i.e. 2016 presidential election.

I was a dyed in the wool conservative for most of my life, but for the life of me, I can't understand how the GOP has gone to shit the way they have. It's definitely not my party anymore.

Shades of George Orwell's 1984. If you tell a lie long enough and yell it loud enough people believe it, regardless if it's been proven that it's a lie. It's a shame as I think Orwell meant for his books (1984 and Animal Farm ) to be cautionary tales rather than play books to be used by those who would believe we can't see the truth. Have a good one.

New2Midlo replies on 6/11/2021 2:14 pm:
You're giving certain factions more credit than they deserve, if you think they're using Orwell as a guide. Hell, that would require them reading, which I know for a fact a certain president didn't do.

Well, if it was stolen thank goodness. Things are going swimmingly now.

At least our allies can trust us again, which is a start.

Axolotls can also regenerate their retinas, parts of their brain and spine.
Of course chocolate milk comes from brown cows. What I want to know is where strawberry milk comes from! Do they have pink cows?

(OMG I hope you know I'm kidding about the brown cows. lol)

I'm quite happy that Cheeto Head is now part of history. A sad, tragic part of history. Hopefully never to be repeated.

Hmmmm....I know I left that wand around here somewhere!

Re: brown cows; I had my ex gf's son completely convinced they were responsible for chocolate milk. She told me to knock it off.

I always find it funny when I see people like you, and with the mentality you have to boot, on a sex site. Like, you're clearly a Trump supporter, but you engage in sex with men and women. I don't think there is anything wrong with that...but Trump does (well...the 'men having sex with men' part). That is ironic in itself since we know Trump's views on sex.
