I’m 78 years previous and have realized a number of classes all through the years. One of the vital necessary consists of the next: by no means argue politics, by no means argue faith and by no means argue with a drunk. Ignoring my very own recommendation, I wish to suggest the next arguments as to why Trump misplaced the election. Let’s begin with faith.
God is omniscient and all-powerful we’re taught. There’s additionally the concept of the need of God. This implies God can choose and decide cosmic outcomes. Sixty p.c of the residents in Stearns County voted for him. Coincidentally, 45 p.c of the residents in Stearns County are Catholics certain by the teachings of “pray, pay and obey.” This aligns together with his demand for loyalty and obedience to him. Now, Trump’s lists of failures embrace the next: he lies and has a complete disregard for the regulation, bungled the covid pandemic, behaved poorly towards ladies and minorities, disrespected the presidency, insulted world leaders, cozied as much as dictators and ignored the teachings of Jesus by insulting and demeaning individuals. The apparent conclusion to the mess Trump has created is God in his/her infinite knowledge is now punishing america with Covid-19 and has precipitated his defeat for re-election. If one believes in faith, then one has to imagine that is God’s will.
Now let’s transfer on to politics. He and his legal professionals have lawsuits rejected, proposed outlandish claims of fraud and conspiracy theories of lifeless individuals voting, rigged voting machines, fraudulent mail-in ballots and rejected the outcomes of the elections all with out proof. As of this writing, Biden has received 290 electoral votes to Trump’s 232 and received the favored vote by greater than 5 million votes. Now for a secular cause. The scientific principal of Occam’s Razor can clarify his loss. It states, “The perfect rationalization of an occasion is the one that’s the easiest, utilizing the fewest assumptions or hypotheses.” Judging by his loss, it’s plain the straightforward cause individuals didn’t vote for Trump is that they didn’t like him or his habits.
The 2 aforementioned causes for Trump’s failure has little to do with actuality or have any fact behind them. They’re mere speculations that even an individual who has had an excessive amount of to drink couldn’t settle for. So there you could have it: don’t argue faith, politics or with a drunk. However, there’s an abiding cause for his failure that mixes each faith and a secular rationalization. And after 4 years of Trump, his loss is finest defined by Martin Luther King Jr.’s declaration that, “The arc of the ethical universe is lengthy, but it surely bends towards justice.”
