Part 3 of Winning The Electoral College In 2020 has been in the can for several days. I’ve postponed posting it during this time of grieving and protest following the execution of an African-American man by a white police officer in Minneapolis.
At a time like this it is helpful to hold tight to any American institution you can think of. So I’m definitely holding on to the series about the Electoral College. I plan to resume the series at some time.
In addition to violence and protest, the coronavirus pandemic remains with us, people continue to become ill and die of the virus, and so much of America remains closed or partly closed, or partly open.
And not least, we have a degree of political turmoil both in America and in other countries, such as the United Kingdom. And we have almost certainly entered a serious economic recession, probably worldwide in nature. This too, shall pass.
I hesitate to say this, but to tell the truth, I don’t feel 100 percent certain that there will be electoral votes to count in November. However, I think I am about 99 percent certain.
UNCERTAINTY is one of the words often used for this time in America and the world.
I can assure you that I am definitely HOPEFUL. It is most important to make the choice to HOPE.
