MRFF Board Member John Compere: “Our Resilient American Constitution”

By MRFF Board Member John Compere

The 2020 presidential election was held pursuant to our United States Constitution. All 50 American states conducted, completed and certified the election in accordance with Article II of the Constitution (and Amendment X).

The constitutional election process exemplifies “states’ rights” and a principle of the Republican party platform preamble – “…returning to the people and the states the control that belongs to them…the control and the power to make their own decisions…”.

Federal and state courts throughout the country heard 62 challenges to the election and did not change the outcome in any state. The United States Supreme Court twice denied election challenges. This constitutional election was affirmed by the judicial branch and the case closed.

The executive branch departments of Justice and Homeland Security as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation reported finding no evidence of fraud affecting the election result.

The United States Senate and House of Representatives approved the election result as provided by Article II of the Constitution. This constitutional election was confirmed by the legislative branch and the process concluded.

We Americans are very fortunate our presidential elections are governed by the Constitution. “The Constitution is a guide which I will never abandon.” – GEORGE WASHINGTON (Founder and 1st President)

The very definition of a republic is “…a nation of laws and not of man.” – JOHN ADAMS (Founder and 2nd President)

“Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.” – ABRAHAM LINCOLN (Republican and 16th President)

“Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official.” – THEODORE ROOSEVELT (Republican and 26th President)

“When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the losers.” – SOCRATES (Legendary Philosopher)
