MAINTAINING DECORUM: WILL WE PRESERVE OUR TRADITION OF THE PEACEFUL TRANSITION OF PRESIDENTIAL POWER?

Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance

Poetry reading by Horace, an early advocate of decorum. Painting by Fyodor Bronnikov
(from Decorum – Wikipedia)

Think about that title question. Will we preserve our tradition of the peaceful transition of power? Will we maintain the proper precepts of social decorum?

One of the most difficult things any nation ever must do is choose its leadership. Examine the history of the world. This is the subject of the most bloody and catastrophic wars. Thus, one of the marvels of the United States is that every four-eight years we peacefully choose a new president. The winners of the election celebrate. The losers of the election may sulk a bit, but everyone is relieved that the election is over. We don’t have to watch any more presidential campaign advertisements for another four years.

Is the process perfect? Two lifetimes ago, when Abraham Lincoln was elected, we fought a civil war.

We are…

  1. The actions described in the below article are very frightening to me. A shadow campaign to decide which information is acceptable and true smacks of 1984 and totalitarianism. Very similar to how the CCP decides what is acceptable for their subjects to believe and say. Further, the action was not designed, as they say, to have a “free, fair and uncorrupted election,” it was designed to do whatever it took, legal or otherwise, to ensure Trump lost.

    What can be done to protect the integrity of the election process from such actions? What can be done to ensure our county has a secure voting system with procedures that all Americans can trust? I don’t want the CCP or an internal cabal choosing my leaders.

    It was a coup. The troubling part was why did so many spend so much effort and money to organize and coordinate the coup. The answer is CCP money and propaganda.

    The below author has done an incredible job of connecting all the dots. Smith’s book, “The Permanent Coup: How Enemies Foreign and Domestic Targeted the American President,” came out in August 2020. He lists the details of coup as it was happening. Read the overview at

    The overview gets off to a slow start and is long. However, read the entire article and you will understand the why of the coup. The question remains, how do we regain control of our country?

      I find the current situation very frightening too. The only solace I have is that God is sovereign, not man, and He is kind to those who love Him (Romans 8:28).

      What can we do? Because of the way they have rigged the system, there are only two political parties in America, Democrat and Republican. If you want to be involve in nominating either a Democratic or Republican Party candidate, you have to join one of those parties. Independents don’t have a chance. At best (or worse), they are spoilers.

      Because we have local, state, and national political offices, the political parties operate at the local, state, and national level. Hence, to join a political party, we need to find the office or website of our local party and start participating. I suggest two immediate goals:

      • Fighting for election integrity. If we don’t win this battle, we lose.
      • Fighting for school choice (to stop the indoctrination of our children). We cannot win the battle for election integrity if we don’t stop public school indoctrination.

      That said, the first thing to do is pray for guidance from our Lord. We each have something God wants us to do, and He is the boss.

      Thank you for the references. I am tempted to get a subscription to The Epoch Times.

      The article at The Tablet puzzles me. Why so many Jews vote for Democrats boggles the mind. Good to see a Conservative Jewish publication. Hopefully, we will see more Christian ones.
