Vice-chair Liz Cheney made a strong statement about the danger the nation faces in future elections during her opening remarks at what is believed to be the last meeting of the January 6 committee before the midterm elections.
According to Cheney, Our institutions only hold when men and women of good faith make them hold. There is no assurance that these men and women will be present the next time.
That sentence is undeniably accurate, as we are aware.
We would be in a very different situation right now if former Vice President Mike Pence had given in to demands from then-President Donald Trump (and his backers) to invalidate the electoral vote tally on January 6, 2021.
We would be in a very different situation right now if Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger had given in to pressure from Trump (and his backers) to modify the states vote total.
We also know that there are ongoing efforts to elect officials in crucial electoral positions who have publicly contested the results of the 2020 election and vowed to inaugurate Donald Trump as president in 2024.
According to CNN, at least 11 Republican contenders for secretary of state in 2020 have contested the election results. Jim Marchant, who is vying to be Nevadas top election officer, is also on that list.
At a recent Trump rally, Marchant predicted that when she becomes secretary of state of Nevada, we are going to repair it, and that President Trump is going to be president again in 2024 if her coalition of secretary of state candidates around the nation win their respective elections.
The apocalypse scenario that Liz Cheney is announcing is not the impact of a meteor on Earth. States around the nation are currently experiencing this scenario, and the Republican candidates for these positions arent even shy about it.
