Letters to the editor

Editor, the Advocate:

The chairman of the Victoria Republican Party, Bill Pozzi stated Sunday that he did not trust the integrity of the election results and is not ready to accept defeat. Plus and most importantly he stated he didn’t have faith in the system anymore on national election because they can come up with the outcome they want. Plus he stated he thinks all of the election was in the bag before the election even got going.

I disagree Mr. Pozzi. You are telling all of Victoria and surrounding counties that we no longer have an American democracy. You are telling the same people not to believe or have faith in our future election because the winner is already determined. I don’t know what America you believe in, but I believe in the America that has a democracy, that was established that one legal person can place one legal vote, then all legal votes will be added up and the total will determine the winner. If you read my posts on Facebook you’ll read that I stated that Democrats should have not celebrated early until the major lawsuits are played out.

Again to tell all of Victoria and surrounding counties that America no longer has a democracy, Well maybe not one to suit you. I’ll close with a quote from former President G.W. Bush the last Republican president statement congratulating President-Elect Biden: “The American people can have confidence that this election was fundamentally fair, it’s integrity will be upheld and it’s outcome is clear!”

Trump is doing the ultimate harm to the United States of America by attacking the credibility of our electoral process. The election is over – move on to the transition. God Bless Joe Biden and God Bless America.

Glenn Wilson

Ultimate harm? That's a bit overheated. He's just leaving a final reminder of what a delusional man-child he is, and that our election and vote counting equipment and processes need a complete overhaul and standardization, utilizing AI and other high technology in everyday use in industry and manufacturing.

Quincy Thompson

The Dems have spent 4 years saying Trump was not elected properly due to Russian collusion, which was created and paid for by Hillary, and not the truth. Al Gore spent 37 days fighting in 2000 and you won't give Trump any time to check out massive reports of fraud in the swing states. I guess dead people voting, massive numbers of unsigned harvested mail in ballots and "glitches" in computers which switch thousands of votes from Trump to Biden don't bother you because you are a Dem. I am an American who wants a creditable electoral process and no the election is not over yet.

Rick Dockery

It’s over based on what? I missed the part where the electoral college voted. The media declared it over. There is not an office of “president elect.” He has every right to contest if he wishes. Until the electors vote, it’s not official.

Mike Gomez

Today the NYT reported that they contacted 50 Sec of States if they found any election fraud..Nada, zilch,none...When about 150M votes are cast, a garden variety of irregularities will occur but certainly not enough to overturn the 250,000 of the votes in the states in question. Already six of those cases have been rejected, one withdrawn and the one in Erie, PA where the postal worker said he saw Trump ballots being discarded turned out to be fabricated. By all means, Trump can continue presenting lawsuits...........I'll just is glad when we stop hearing the newest RW scripted talking points " count every legal vote, etc"......As of this morning, Biden leads the popular vote by 5M.....In the states where Trump has lawsuits, Biden leads by 148,000 in MI, by 45,000 in PA,36,700 in NV,14,000 in GA, and 12,800 in AZ.....Good luck! I've heard of elections of about 400 votes being overturned (rare) but not on this scale...Proof of intent, a pattern, and widespread corruption would have to be shown.

Quincy Thompson

Mike, If the NYT (New York Times) told me the sun was coming up I would go outside to check and see if it was true. Sorry they have absolutely ZERO creditability with me. They have lied and carried water for the DNC for to many years for me to believe them. Notice the lack of stories about Hunter and his corruption with Joe Biden and China.

Rick Dockery

NYT? Lol

Quincy Thompson

No, it was now fabricated, he was strongly interviewed by the FBI with great pressure and he stands by what he said! I saw an interview with him where he restated it was true.

Quincy Thompson

Mr. Macias, I am in agreement with Bill about the integrity of this election. You and I are in agreement about the concept of one legal vote per legal person and whoever gets the most wins. There is no issue with that, as it is the foundation of our country, the problem comes in when that precept is violated with fraud. I believe from all that I have heard and found out and the analysis of suddenly skewed voter percentages, where thousands of Trump votes suddenly changed to Biden votes, that there are wide spread issues with this election! There are documented "dead" people signing up and voting. There have been massive ballot harvesting efforts of the mailed out ballots with tens of thousands showing up with no matching signatures and showing up late and having no post parks. One source said that there has been a large number of ballots showing up with only the president race marked on it. That is not how people vote who are interested in their country. It has been reported that in 3 counties in Pennsylvania, at the exact same time, Trump lost 10,000 votes. There are reports of people filling out ballots on the sides of a van outside of a counting site! I believe that in Texas and much of our country the system, with a few small issues, works very well and I have confidence in it. The problem comes in these states where a small swing can change the election and efforts can and I believe have been made to change the vote to their party. This has to be checked out and if found to be true should be punished. Trump has had to fight the Fake News, Big Tech, Wall Street and Big Parma the whole time and now he is fighting corrupt Dem strongholds because of voter fraud. For the sake of our country this has to be completely checked out and investigated and if true a full manual recount should be done! The results of that election I will accept.

Mike Gomez

“ The now-disbanded voting integrity commission launched by the Trump administration uncovered no evidence to support claims of widespread voter fraud, according to an analysis of administration documents released Friday.“...Aug 8,2018 AP

Quincy Thompson

Mike, I assume you are talking about the 2016 election, we are interested in the 2020 election where I believe there was an organized effort to defeat Trump in the battle ground states. A whole lot of smelly stuff went down.

Glen or Janice Ullman

Quincy, you just realized that there was an organized effort to beat Trump in the battle ground states? They were organized, and our new president Joe Biden prevailed, both popularly and electorally. If you want to find some improprieties look at some of the red states. Trump the” suer “needs to man up and face the fact he lost in the greatest democracy in the world. Justifiably, I might add...Glen

Quincy Thompson

You are right Glen, very organized efforts to Fraud the American people of a true electoral process in the Dem controlled cities of the battleground states. I have not heard of any issues in the "Red" states but thousands in Dem cities. Why? We may end up loosing and if so you have just elected the most incompetent President in the history of this country with Harris as VP! May God Help Us!

Rick Dockery

Didn’t the other party spend years trying to discredit. I believe they blamed Russia. The fact Iran is thrilled says it all. I’m sure China is excited also.

Steve Fiedler

' one legal person can place one legal vote, then all legal votes will be added up and the total will determine the winner. " therein lies the problem. i, among the most ardent conservatives, do not begrudge nor dispute any legal vote or any legal voter. i can handle defeat that is fair and square. it's the liberal enablement of illegal voters and illegal votes that i begrudge and dispute. seems to me liberals have a selective use and disuse of 'legal and illegal'. all votes are 'legal', none illegal, unless cast by a republican. no alien is 'illegal', all aliens are welcome and expected to receive the full rights of legal american citizens. that too i begrudge and dispute. 'legal' aliens or i guess 'immigrant' is the sensitive nonoffensive term, i welcome, you have followed the rules of the country you have chosen. illegals i do not welcome and i am offended when they are granted full rights and benefits of legal citizenship

Quincy Thompson

Spot on Steve, All Legal Votes Count, All Illegal Votes Should Not Be Counted! End of conversation.

Glenn Wilson

Steve - "one legal person can place one legal vote, then all legal votes will be added up and the total will determine the winner." -- Great idea, exactly how it should be on a national scale but isn't. We have this filter called the Electoral College in the way, wherein the will of the majority party in any state totally nullifies the will of the minority party as if they'd never voted. The Presidential election should represent We The People, not We The States.

Daniel Martin

Wow! Steve you really need to share you evidence of vote fraud with the RNC. Apparently they keep losing in court because they don’t have evidence. Where did you locate your information and have you shared it with the Republican Party?

Allen T Coffey

Exactly, Mr. Macias, exactly.

Glen or Janice Ullman

The GOP knew this day was coming, and so did Trump. It’s hard to disenfranchise the majority of the American voters...Glen

Glenn Wilson

Not so hard at all, Glen. The Electoral College did it easily in 2016, and that wasn't the first time.

Glen or Janice Ullman

Glenn, I agree, but the electoral college is lawfully backed disenfranchisement. One of those laws that has needed fine tuning for a long time now...Glen

Glenn Wilson

As are term limits. Congress, having our best interests at heart as they always do, will no doubt be correcting both issues any day now. ROFLMAO!
