This blog is for all readers of Boyer Writes around the world who may be wondering if democracy is still part of who we are as a nation. The answer is YES. As in all parts of the world, we, in the United States of America, have citizens who choose to interrupt and degrade the official practices of the government and the people.
Peace will return and we will carry on as our Founding Fathers expected our nation to function. President Lincoln carried us through Civil War and the Presidents thereafter moved forward through civil unrest, World Wars, the Great Depression and more. Our Constitution is the heart of all our freedoms and will be abided by. We will also continue to be a friend to all nations of the world that love freedom.
The drum beats of our democracy continued in an orderly fashion this week, with the final tally of those voting for each State through the Electoral College, was counted and made official… regardless of the civil disorder that was heard and seen around the world.
For those who may not understand our Electoral College, here is a definition:
In the Electoral College system, each state gets a certain number of electors based on its total number of representatives in Congress. Each elector casts one electoral vote following the general election; there are a total of 538 electoral votes. The candidate that gets more than half (270) wins the election. (U.S Government)
Now, in 2021, we pray for a PEACEFUL TRANSFER OF POWER.
Let all things be done decently and in order.
