The 2020 presidential election is over and the nation has a new president; however, concerns and disputes regarding the status of election fraud in the country have not vanished.
Despite Biden serving at the helm of power for the next four years, the ambiguity and reports of cheating in the 2020 presidential election cannot be erased or forgotten. Democrats continue to deny that any instances of fraud happened in last year’s presidential race; however, Republicans feel very differently and are not going to be dismissed by the left.
Yesterday, Republican Sen. Rand Paul and Democrat ABC News host George Stephanopoulos got into a heated back-and-forth over election fraud claims and the merits behind them, Newsmax reports.
The Reality About Election Fraud in America
When Stephanopoulos kicked off his interview with Sen. Paul, he started by trying to get the GOP senator to affirmatively deny that the 2020 presidential election was stolen. The Republican senator then responded by noting that ballots from dead and illegal voters, secretaries of states illegally altering election laws, etc. all happened last year.
The ABC News host then responded by essentially claiming that anyone who alleges election fraud or a stolen 2020 election is lying. Stephanopoulos also noted that the Justice Department and other legal bodies dismissed fraud suits and other assertions of foul play. The Democrat reporter then asserted that a “big lie” from President Trump is why so many Republicans believe election fraud happened.
Finally, an intelligent statement on the election.
Thank you, @RandPaul.
Shame on the rest of you spineless weasels. THIS is what courage looks like.

From here, the conversation rapidly went left. Sen. Paul stated that left-wing Americans can’t just declare that no fraud happened or assert everything was thoroughly investigated when this isn’t true. Paul also noted that instances like mass absentee ballots with names and no addresses are worth addressing.
After stating that he won’t be shut down by Democrats who deny election fraud, Paul confirmed that he will travel across the nation to fix issues regarding fraud in elections. The Republican senator also called for additional investigation and open debates.
Different Realities on Opposite Sides
At this point in the nation, it’s more than apparent that most Republicans and Democrats live in alternate realities.
To the Democrats, any person who brings forward concerns about election fraud is a liar or conspiracy theorist. Republicans, on the other hand, are aware of the many sworn affidavits, law changes, and other situations that indicate problems with the 2020 presidential election.
I voted to certify the electors and seat the new President. It’s not about that anymore. They won’t even admit there is election fraud and want to pretend nothing happened.

At a time when the new president is talking about unity, the polar opposite realities that Republicans and Democrats live in show that many challenges lie ahead.
