As they used to say in the House of Representatives, “Keep your powder dry!” There is officially no winner of the Presidential election just yet. The judicial system is dealing with this moment of national confusion. We must remember that the media has no authority to declare a winner. Anyone in America can deliver an acceptance speech!
Let’s wait and see what happens next. We could be into December before we have a final count and a true winner can be OFFICIALLY DECLARED.
The United States Constitution orders every state to hold an election for the President every four years. However, it gives states the freedom in the details of how the election is conducted. We’d like to presume the officials charged with the duty of conducting these elections are motivated by fairness and honesty. Sadly, that is not true.
