Rewind 12 hours or so.

Joe Biden is ahead by tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of votes in five states yet to be decided.

All indicators were that Biden would win the presidency.

But when Americans woke up on Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump received spikes in results thanks to mail-in ballots.

Just imagine if President Trump had this kind of increase in live vote results

If this were the case, America would be burning.

Rioting would be nonstop and it would be happening in many metropolitan areas.

But it isn’t.

Ask yourself, why is that.

Depending on how all of this turns out, we still may see for ourselves just how different the other side would be reacting.

We will wait and see.
