THE ELECTION, WAS CUT AND DRIED AND THE PRESS WAS DOING THE CONVINCING OF THE PEOPLE. Before 1960, 2 states Illinois and Texas were the 2 states rigged to save the election for the Democrats. This was considered to dangerous, to close. This started the method of declaring by T.V. of estimates of electoral votes on a small percentage of votes. But the attack came in Viet Nam showing the close work with the Reds, Communists just before the election, and if they hadn’t had this all planned out they wouldn’t have let you have an election.
You are in a period when there is a certain amount of apathy by the people. They want security, no worries, no wars, although they are in a deadly one, but they are turning away from that to total amusement, and not thinking, depending on TV. for mass information and miss‑information, and the idea that the government owes them total medical care, security, with nothing built around thrift or on the Bible or Constitution. The greatest mistake we ever made in this country is when we started abandoning the constitutional foundations of our forefathers, back in the days of Madison and others, of the right to vote, which should have remained at all times in the hands of those who had an equity in the country, property owners, because they pay the bills. This is the way the elections were conducted in the first 3 administrations. Then you don’t have this pressure from groups who want supplied with something for nothing.
