The Presidential Election Recount Trend

It was a given that someone would call for a recount of the votes cast during the 2016 presidential election. This call for a recount has become a growing trend since the Florida election recount of the 2000 presidential election between George W. Bush and Al Gore and augmented by the Washington gubernatorial election recount of 2004, the Vermont Auditor of Accounts election of 2006, the Florida congressional elections of 2006, and the United States Senate election in Minnesota in 2008.

Presidential Election

One reason for this growing trend to recount election results is that Americans do not trust their politicians, even those they vote for in office.


This mistrust of politicians is nothing new and, in many instances, is a useful tool if used properly to keep politicians honest. However, calling for a recount of the votes simply because you do not like the election results is childish and creates confusion about the goal of moving forward and getting the needed jobs done.


Any election can foster resentment and bitterness between opposing camps during the campaigning processes, and even after the election campaign is over, a certain amount of grievances will continue to be shared between both losers and winners.

During the 2016 presidential election, bitterness, meanness, and hostility became a byword for the campaign’s overall atmosphere, primarily instigated and sustained by presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

But the 2016 presidential election is over, and all Americans should now be willing to move above and beyond the election results in a consensus to advance the United States of America into an era of peace, creativity, inventiveness, and prosperity for all Americans that it has never experienced before.

It is diehard career politicians that are very bitter and resentful that a person who has walked in off the street and won a high governmental position that is eager to call foul play on the 2016 presidential election outcome because they have been working the political mill for years and even decades and have not yet reached their political goals.

These career politicians have the same mindset as the folks of old who resented the automobile’s introduction; the new cart on the block, when using a horse and buggy, was still the accepted means of locomotion to get home, business, and higher office.

This growing trend to call for the recount of election results will only escalate in frequency and cause the public to mistrust their governmental and private institutions even more until more advanced and secure vote tabulation techniques and systems are developed and deployed.

Even with a better system, losers will be losers, and winners will be winners; there is just no getting around that. The goal should be the same regardless of political persuasion: the refreshing and rejuvenating of Earth and protecting its other life forms, and the conquest and population of the Universe under the leading banner of the United States of America.

Computers and information technologies will never be hack-proof until these systems completely begin to design and program themselves and allow minimal human interaction with them, which will certainly be the latest in information technologies and, more than likely, within a few decades. Until then, there should be an ongoing effort to patch and plug any breaches in the current vote-counting systems and techniques to ensure as few human and mechanical errors and misbehaving as possible.

The monies raised to recount an election result could be better spent helping sick and hungry children here in the United States. But what matters the most to a few offers no benefits to most people and usually does not attend to anything save a selfish concern.

Calling for a vote recount is prudent when things do not seem to add up, but calling for a recount of votes when there is no evidence that some form of misconduct has taken place or because you do not like the results of an election is disrespectful to the voting public and unproductive use of energies to rig the election after the fact.

Many people are now screaming that the loser of the 2016 presidential election is the winner of the 2016 presidential election because of the popular vote count that appears to be in the loser’s favor. But the popular vote was for slavery and the Jim Crow Laws in the South. The popular vote allows homosexuals to spread their diseases and viruses throughout the human population and decimate it.

The popular vote is to choose politicians who have proven corrupt, selfish, and dishonest. The popular vote was against a woman’s right to vote for decades. The popular vote made it illegal to manufacture and distribute alcoholic beverages, which resulted in a devastating crime wave and the creation of more alcoholics.

The popular vote said that it was politically correct to allow the exhibition of human zoos in major U.S cities where little black children were caged and gawked at and tossed bananas and peanuts by white spectators.

The popular vote made it legal to rob, lie to, steal from, and kill people, not white racial groups.

The popular vote made it legal to conduct human experiments on black infants as a scientific method to prove that Darwin’s theory of evolution was a sound and credible doctrine. These are all examples of how the popular vote has been used in the United States of America.

These few examples of a mountain of facts concerning the value of misguided popular votes should suggest that the popular vote is not always the best way to go. It goes without saying that in the cosmic courts of humanities, the United States of America has much to answer for, and it may be fitting that the loser has proclaimed the winner and will surely bring the United States closer to its judgment day.
