When I taught school, I always wanted to challenge my students with problems that required them to think. I would give the problems to them with the hope that they would use either deductive or inductive reasoning.
When we use deductive reasoning, we usually start with a general statement or hypothesis. Once the hypothesis is established,(all birds fly south in October, for example) then the task is to work forward from the general statement (hypothesis) to the specific.
Inductive reasoning on the other hand starts with a specific observation to a broader generalization. In England, a doctor noticed that young women who milked cows and contracted cow pox, a non-life-threatening illness, never had smallpox, a disease that killed thousands each year. Working from what he knew, he discovered that cow pox prevented smallpox.
This is a presidential election year, so let's put our heads together to see if we can make a rational prediction as to the outcome. The mainstream media believes that Joe Biden will defeat Donald Trump on November 3, so let’s put that hypothesis to the test.
The first thing that we notice and believe to be important is the lack of campaigning by Joe Biden.
For a presidential candidate, he has remained holed up in his basement for many days that should have been used to spread his message.
No presidential campaign in recent memory has followed Biden’s game plan. He blames his unusual lack of activity on COVID-19, and he is right to be cautious. He is 78 years old and in the group that has been identified as “vulnerable.” Trump, on the other hand, has contracted the coronavirus, was hospitalized for 3 days, and was back on the campaign trail Covid-19 free. Remember, also, that Trump is 74 years old and fits into the “vulnerable group.” He practiced what he preached. We can overcome this virus. The common man and woman like his “swag.”
Crowds? When the “Sleepy One” ventures out to campaign, his speeches can’t draw flies. Even one of the fake media remarked that his appearances are boring. People standing in little circles six feet apart may not be the answer to getting his message out Trump, by contrast, draws thousands of people to his rallies no matter where they are staged. We know that large numbers of Democrats attend these rallies, and many have signed cards pledging to support the president.
Biden worked in Washington D. C., for 47 years. He was first a senator, then under Barack Obama, he was vice president. During that 47-year period, Biden did nothing of significance. We know that he has made racial statements in the past, and if you watch TV, they are played each day. He never made an effort to help minorities when he had power, yet he expects their vote. This is very strange to me.
It is clear that Biden is suffering from the early stages of dementia, and according to inside sources, the condition is growing worse each day. In recent days, his son Hunter has made the news. It looks like Hunter, using his father’s position and influence, was taking money from the corrupt Ukraine gas company to the tune of millions. Apparently, “good Ole Joe” was getting a kickback from Hunter. You and I would be in jail for this sort of activity, but we will just have to wait and see what happens to Joe.
Kamala Harris is the most liberal member of the Senate, and she was rejected by her own Democrat Party when she ran for president. If Joe wins and can no longer execute the duties of president, Kamala will become the president. I believe this is a negative thought to the American people.
Trump has been investigated for over 3 years, and no illegal activity has been discovered. The American people know this, and if Biden’s son has roped him into taking bribes, then Biden is toast.
Can we arrive at a logical conclusion after reviewing just some of these facts? We can say truthfully that Trump is where he was in 2016 with the fake news and the media proclaiming that he would lose the race. I think we can predict that not only will Trump win, but he will win with a higher total of electoral votes than in 2016.
Another conclusion: the American people are not stupid!
