letter: spread hatred | Notice
Bill Shaw’s column in the May 23 edition of The Pilot had so much hatred for Republicans that it’s hard to know where to start.
Apparently Shaw didn’t attend history class when he discussed how a president is elected – the Electoral College is how a president is elected, not by popular vote. I thought Mr. Shaw might have known that the Founding Fathers created the Electoral College so that the more populous states could not dominate the smaller, less populous states. Someone has to remind Shaw that Republicans have occupied the White House for 24 of the past 40 years.
Shaw claims there were over 60 mock trials, but he does not identify them. He’s claiming election fraud on the part of Republicans, so how come some states are calling for an audit?
Someone again forgot to tell him that the states make election laws, the federal government does not. He must be very happy with the Biden administration and its attempt to nationalize election laws.
Finally, Shaw’s meager attempt to use humor in his example of using sport to determine election results isn’t funny, it’s obnoxious.
