The U.S. 2020 election is mere days from today. For those of you who have followed this journal, it is no surprise that I support the re-election of President Trump for a second term. Though I cannot claim to speak for all the President’s supporters, I believe that most of us have similar reasons for lending him our favor this election. There are, in fact, a large number of reasons that anyone could cite for voting for President Trump this election.
During the last two weeks, the public has witnessed two social media companies that are engaged in blatant examples of trying to tamper with the 2020 U.S. presidential election. The actions of both Twitter and Facebook that amount to election tampering were not accidental but planned and purposeful.
The recent censorship by both social media titans of President Trump’s campaign and of many other influential conservatives began with a New York Post story concerning the corruption surrounding presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son Hunter. The source for these revelations was the contents of a hard drive from Hunter Biden’s laptop computer. Both Twitter and Facebook locked or censored the accounts of the Post and anyone who linked to their story including the President’s campaign outlets on the social media “platforms.” Nor were these actions the first or only example of attempts to tamper with this election. In fact, such tampering was intended from the moment candidate Donald Trump won the 2016 election.
