More than tears will flow
from a Biden election

October 5, 2020 --

LPR urges its visitors to read the letter in the September 29 Wall Street Journal from Mary Ellen Bork, widow of Judge Robert H. Bork.  She writes, in part,  that she sat in the hearing room where the Senate Judiciary Committee considered the nomination of her husband to the Supreme Court and witnessed "then-Sen, Biden presid[ing] over a rigged hearing full of an unprecedented level of lying and distortion of a man known for his integrity and judicial wisdom."  Mrs. Bork went on to note that after her husband left the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, "Democrats would often come up to him to apologize for the way the Democratic politicians treated him and would leave with tears in their eyes. She concluded, "We will all have tears in our eyes if Joe Biden is elected president. "

We will also have unchecked progressive government with the media paving the way for extraconstitutional and unconstitutional government with President Biden serving as puppet, yes puppet for the extremist leftist minority who will ride herd on the American people, making a mockery of our legacy of freedom, transforming the country into a tragically close imitation of the government described by Orwell in his dystopian novel, "1984,"  The reality is that the threat to democracy in America comes from the leftists behind Biden -- and, incredible as it may seem, the media that wraps itself in the First Amendment for the purpose of enriching itself, while reducing the people of America  to servile creatures lacking a shred of dignity. 

Madison, in Federalist No. 57, wrote that the American people have a "spirit which nourishes freedom, and in return is nourished by it."  Now, for heaven's sake, is the election to prove to the founding fathers  that we  continue to be actuated by the spirit of freedom, not the burden of subservience.

The lead editorial in the September 28 Wall Strteet Journal, enthusiastically backing Judge Coney Barrett's confirmation to the Supreme Court ended by predicting that "[w]in or lose in November [Republican Senators will have left a significant legacy in restoring proper constitutional government.   Wrong. Such restoration requires the re-election of President Trump and a Republican Senate majority, and election of a Republican majority in the House.   It is regrettable that The Wall Street Journal cannot see that the defeat of President Trump is, quite simply, a defeat for democracy and the constitutional form of representative government that goes with it.
