What is the core reason why millions of voters are groaning about straws?
The Chicago Tribune Opinion Columnist article titled: Can the Republic survive Trump’s attack on the election, contained this statement:
“Even so, his wrathful attempt to overturn the result of a free, fair election qualifies as shocking. We knew he wouldn’t accept defeat gracefully. We knew he would claim he was cheated. But we couldn’t have imagined that he would use his position so relentlessly to try to disenfranchise millions of voters.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb and a description for interested readers to solve the conundrum based on what the writer’s headline should have questioned.
“Can the Republic survive the groans of its citizenry being bombarded with “strawman” answers?”
When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan. (Proverbs 29:2 ESV)
Strawman Definition Excerpt Wikipedia
“ (sometimes written as strawman) is a form of argument and an informal fallacy of having the impression of refuting an argument, whereas the proper idea of argument under discussion was not addressed or properly refuted. One who engages in this fallacy is said to be “attacking a straw man”.
What’s My Point?
In a previous post titled: Integrity of Wisconsin Ballots? I provided a source article that stated:
“Wisconsin does not have signature matching laws, so it doesn’t matter how a voter signs their name, as long as it’s on their return envelope. “
In a Citizen Tom post titled: In Search of an Honest Court, Tom commented,
“You say I don’t care about the homeless, the poor, the minorities and the endless suffering mobs Liberal Democrats claim to support and actually abuse? That’s a straw man.
My point is when people groan, they are repeating the same sounds that billions of people have made for over 3000 years when they believe they are being oppressed by wicked rule, and not being listened to by those in power.
In My Opinion
People would much rather rejoice rather than groan, in my opinion.
However, President Trump will probably never concede this election because he listened to the advice of Hillary Clinton.
For the next four years, President Trump will voice his arguments, same as Hillary Clinton did, that she should have won the election but for different reasons.
I have written numerous posts about the fact that the first time use of millions of mailed in ballast were impossible to verify in Georgia, and was flabbergasted when I read that Wisconsin has no laws to verify ballots, they counted in the 2020 election…
If the Chicago Tribune columnist is really concerned that Trump is going to be responsible for another four years of political divisions or even another Civil War, perhaps he should aim his concerns at Hillary Clinton and the Courts who Trump has dutifully listened to her advice and will be sounding out his opinions for the next four years.
That will make Joe Biden’s promise to unify our Nation one more “empty suit: political promise” “to be recorded in USA history.
All could be avoided if only government would listen to the sounds of the groans of its citizenry who because of the reasons King Solomon observed 3000 years ago and his prediction that generations of fools that follow after him will repeated the same follies under the sun.

Are the answers we are hearing in response to our groan’s mumbo jumbo strawman argument?
Will we mere mortals ever wise up and quit repeating the same follies as previous generations in recorded history”
Why is the 2020 Election have to be a conundrum instead of simple common-sense solution to a first-time mass use of ballots made in haste without constitutional authority’s or methods to verify ballots for accuracy, same as what happens in banana Republics?
Which political entity should be described as conducting their behaviors using the columnist words, “gracefully” and, “recklessly, or will be the real cause of “disenfranchisement,.” that will result in our Republic for the next four years?”
