Person of the Year - The Disenfranchised American Voter

The elites can steal an election. But they can’t steal a movement.
When the Constitution formed this nation, we were a country of around 4 million. But in 2020 at least 74 million Americans have had their votes tossed in the trash along with the Constitution.
More Americans had their votes discarded, stolen, nullified, corrupted, and obstructed in this election than existed in the entire United States when it fought for its independence from monarchy and tyranny, when it brought into being a “more perfect union”, when it expanded westward, and when brother against brother fought in a civil war to preserve that union.
There were more Americans who voted for President Trump than were living in the United States in 1890. The entire nation, as it was in 1890, had its vote usurped by a corrupt oligarchy.
While the battles go on across cable news and social media, these are the forgotten men.
They were the forgotten men and women who rallied to Reagan and to Trump, falling behind in a nation whose elites can’t wait to leave 1787 and 1890, along with old mill towns, steel plants that made a nation’s skyscrapers, rusting factories that once supplied her people, port cities on whose ships cargoes once flowed to the world that are now filled with Made in China junk ships.
They are the coal miners who were told to learn to code, managers dragged into unconscious bias training before being fired anyway, carpenters sidelined by illegal aliens, police officers beaten by grad students chanting Black Lives Matter, IT men whose jobs were offshored, women who were called ‘Karens’ for calling 911 after being attacked in a mall parking lot.

2020 was not just another election. 2016 was an uprising by the nation’s forgotten men and women. In 2020, the empire struck back, outspending the forgotten men, rigging races with ballot harvesting, bypassing legislatures, stealing votes, and then laughing in their faces.
That was a mistake.
It’s the same mistake that was made in Iran, in Venezuela, in Russia, in China, and in countless totalitarian nations that built mass movements out of stolen elections and brutal crackdowns.
Elections can be stolen, but when an election is also an uprising, then the movement grows.
The real question on the ballot in 2016 and in 2020 was who was running the country. The two wealthiest counties in the country, Loudoun County and Falls Church City, are D.C. bedroom communities. Nine of the twenty wealthiest counties in America are D.C. suburbs.
We are indeed a nation of ‘Two Americas’ as Senator John Edwards declared at the Democratic National Convention, and there’s no better proof than Edwards who escaped 30 years in prison after being tried for misusing $725,000 in campaign contributions from a Gillette heiress to hide his affair while his wife was dying of cancer, and relaunched his career as an ambulance chaser, suing the Raleigh police because an officer shot a crazy Iranian man brandishing a knife.
One America voted in 2020. The other ‘America’, call it Un-America, stole the election.
