Have voters been oppressed in the 2020 Election?
The Chicago Tribune article titled: Suit vying to subvert the vote rejected, reported the following statement:
“Trump had insisted the court would find the “wisdom” and “courage” to adopt his baseless position that the election was the product of widespread fraud and should be overturned. But the nation’s highest court emphatically disagreed.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate King Solomon Ecclesiastes verses to the Supreme Court decision.
By justice a king gives a country stability, but those who are greedy for bribes tear it down. (Proverb 29:4)
Moreover, I saw under the sun:
In the place of judgment,
Wickedness was there;
And in the place of righteousness,
Iniquity was there (Eccl 3:16).
Did seeing all the wickedness and iniquity spur Solomon on to fix society? Is that where he found his purpose? No. It didn’t matter what he did—wickedness prevailed. So did Solomon. In fact, that’s how he became so wise—he asked God for the gift of discerning between good and evil to better govern the people (1 Kgs 3:9). But did it help? And did it make a difference?
Again, I looked and saw all the oppression that was taking place under the sun:
I saw the tears of the oppressed—
and they have no comforter;
power was on the side of their oppressors—
and they have no comforter.
And I declared that the dead,
who had already died,
are happier than the living,
who are still alive.
But better than both
is the one who has never been born,
who has not seen the evil
that is done under the sun (Eccl 4:1-3 NIV).
This is one of the bleakest pronouncements, not just in the Bible, but in all philosophy. Listen again to what Solomon has said. Not only is the search for justice vanity (as he has said about his other quests)—things are so bad it’s better to be dead and best never to have been born at all! That is pessimism in its most extreme form—a position known as antinativism, i.e., of being against birth, and of claiming that it is better not to exist. (You sometimes read about that, especially in the context of environmental activism.)
What’s My Point?
Frankly, I am not a Constitutional lawyer and spent my working career in manufacturing where we made decisions every day to solve problems, many about quality, that continually arose without the expertise of lawyers.
In other words, I and millions of others have no idea what the mumbo jumbo reasons are that the Supreme Court turned down the Texas lawsuit which is basically an issue of the quality of the election.
However, by doing so, the Supreme Court has probably set-in motion for Joe Biden to be the next President along with his policies and beliefs.
My point is, if we voters have been oppressed, it is nothing new under the sun according to the King Solomon verses.
In My Opinion
We already know that there is an element of political bribery in the character of Joe Biden’s political history from the news reports about how he set up his sons to profit while he was in office. However, in 2016 millions of people were concerned about Trump’s character.
We also know that in spite of Joe being Catholic, he changed his longtime opposition of abortion to support his party platform which is a form of pessimism or antinaturalism. However, many USA citizens do not agree or have any religious beliefs in the USA, or even care about abortion choices being a form of killing and believe Joe is the lesser of two evils which is a contradiction to the proverb. ‘Of two evils, choose neither.’.
However, many of Trump supporters will never accept the election or in other words say the same thing that Trump haters said when Trump won in 2016, “He is not my President.”
My point is we all choose to keep in mind that as long as we are alive, we have hope. And as explained in a previous post the three words most people need to remember about history and keeping the faith in the darkest times in our lives and history, “This Too Shall Pass,”
And in a Democrat Republic, whatever the Joe and the Dems do while in power, there will always be hope that their decisions can be reversed in the next election, as long as we choose to have the wisdom and courage to choose to live.
Or in other words, as long as we are alive, we have hope. And if we have faith, there is even greater hope awaiting us after our deaths.

Do you really understand the Scotus Mumbo Jumbo ruling? And if you do not will you choose hope that regardless of what happens in the future, there is nothing anyone can do that cannot be changed as long as we are alive and have wisdom and courage of our religious faith and beliefs.
