Magical Candy Bars in Java

Tomorrow we should be able to learn about the possible fraud in the 2020 United States presidential election. Hopefully the discussions and events will be peaceful from both sides. It will be interesting to learn what went on and how is it going to be addressed.

Apparently there has been a lot of fraud committed by one of the political parties. If this is case democracy is out the door in the USA.
