Creeping Up On Liberty?? (Part Two)

Rather than ‘shouting from the rooftops,’ which may sound slightly passe, let’s call it ‘messaging from the rooftops,’ starting with this guest article, published, just recently.

Just the other day, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, in a tweet, was accusing “Democrats of attempting to ‘steal’ elections by using entirely legal methods,” according to an article in Mediaite.

Sharing “an article from the Washington Examiner, ‘How to steal an election,’” the senator, in his tweet, included these words about “seeding an area heavy with potential Democratic votes with as many absentee ballots as possible, targeting and convincing potential voters to complete them in a legally valid way, and then harvesting and counting the results.”

Those words, especially the ones about ‘absentee ballots,’ were they, in particular, what might have gotten the senator’s dander up? Or, as the British might put it… his knickers in a twist?

“Despite Paul’s claim of theft, his complaint was largely criticized on Twitter,” according to the article, with John Harwood, at CNN, for example, noting that; “Convincing potential voters to cast legal ballots is…how you win elections in a democracy.”

“In a democracy”… perhaps that bears repeating? And let’s toss in the word ‘liberty,’ as well.

So that’s that, for today. But keep watching this space, for, perhaps, more examples of more of the same.
