(TargetLiberty.org) – To borrow from “A Tale of Two Cities,” America is living through the best of times and the worst of times this year. Historians typically like to take a long look at events, writing tomes that eventually capture dust on great educational institutions’ library shelves.
There are great moments in American history when individuals knew they were witnessing or participating in history in the making. Americans watch the first man walk on the moon in the 1960s. The 1970s brought the end to a protracted war and the collapse of a presidential administration. The list goes on ad infinitum.
The year 2020 has brought its own set of historical events, some happy, some sad. The country endured and continues battling the worst national health crisis in 100 years. The US went from one of the most robust economic cycles in history to a rapid collapse due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Democratic-led cities burned at the hands of Antifa members and Black Lives Matter activists for months, reminiscent of the chaos that engulfed the country during the 1950s and 1960s.
The 2020 Election Is Historic for All the Wrong Reasons
Topping off the year in the “Bad Weirdness” category is the highly-contested 2020 election. First of all, the country doesn’t seem to be any closer to knowing the winner than it did the day before the first in-person ballots were cast. Several lawsuits asserting serious allegations of voting fraud continue winding their way through the courts.
The US Supreme Court docketed two petitions filed by former Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell on December 15 seeking to throw out the election results in Georgia and Michigan.
There’s even talk of Congressional Republicans challenging the Electoral College results when they convene on January 6 in an attempt to finalize their votes.
Here’s the kicker; the due date for response to both of Powell’s Supreme Court petitions isn’t scheduled until January 14, meaning the election could literally come down to the wire — a historic first.
