Editorial: Lovers of liberty should brace for two rough days ahead but with intent to continue fight

Kelli Ann Cox, Publisher, The Golden Hammer

For those of us who care about the liberty, which has defined the United States of America, as a great Nation, today and tomorrow will be rough days for us to endure.

In Georgia today, two incumbent Republican United States Senators, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, will likely lose Republican Runoff Elections to two ultra-liberal challengers. The result will be a 50-50 split in the Senate between Republicans and Democrats with incoming Vice President Kamala Harris voting to break the tie and hand control of that body of Congress to Democrats.

With Biden in the White House, and with Democrats already controlling a slim majority in the United States House of Representatives, freedom-loving Americans will face the dangerous circumstance of Congress and the White House under the control of a Democratic Party, which has fallen under the rule of its ultra-liberal wing.

Conservative activists have gone into Georgia from all across the United States to campaign for Senators Loeffler and Perdue. Unfortunately, the voter turnout and current public opinion polls portend defeat for the Republican candidates later today.

On Wednesday, January 6, the United States Congress will officially receive and count the Electoral College votes from the 2020 Presidential Election and the Vice Presidential Election. Biden will have 306 Electoral College votes to President Donald Trump’s 232 votes, after six key states changed their officially-announced electoral outcomes during the days after the November 3, 2020, General Election.

Twelve (12) United States Senators and over one hundred (100) members of the House of Representatives have indicated they will fight for the election of President Trump and for the disqualification of some or all of the Electoral College votes from the swing states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada, and Arizona.

Although Vice President Mike Pence will preside over the January 6 meeting of Congress, it seems very unlikely that the supporters of President Trump have any chance of prevailing in the vote count, which, historically, has only been a ministerial action.

Conservatives have contacted their elected Senators and Representatives with little positive result. For example, Texas Senator John Cornyn and Utah Senator Mitt Romney, as well as Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have made clear they will not back the President during the Congressional determination of the 2020 election.

Lovers of liberty must persevere in their ever-important fight for the minds and hearts of Americans. Regardless of the likely frustrations over the next two days, grassroots conservatives must plan to work for vital issues and the election of right-meaning candidates in the future. We must fight smart, but we must carry on the political fight, regardless of the results over the next two days.

Liberals felt immense frustration after several American courts, including the United States Supreme Court, decided the 2000 Presidential Election in favor of then-Texas Governor George W. Bush over Al Gore. They persevered and won two of the next three presidential elections.

Are conservatives less willing to fight for their principles than the liberals who fought to elect President Barack Obama twice?

This newspaper hopes not!
