NeoCortex42: Whenever he makes his asinine claims about fraud, the press needs to push him to either provide specific examples or STFU.


There were 65,853,514 votes in 2016 that were NOT for him!! How much more evidence do you NEED??

Mugato: The only problem I see with voting by mail is that it's not completely private so some drunken redneck husband beats his wife if she doesn't vote republican. So what's the problem?


That happens with in person voting too.

Mail-in voting is only temporary.Right now only angry bored people over 60 vote and it rewards those in power to keep it that way.
Leadership in both parties will both lose power.
Making the vote easy is going to go down in history as what killed wacko free market conservatism.

I bet all of Trump's NYC house keeping staff took multiple upper deckers in his gold shiatters when the pandemic hit.

Arachnophobe: This is a beautifully evocative turn of phrase.


Hey, thanks.  Nice of you to say.  I can ask the mods to take it down.  We need to stay on brand around here.  :)

Subby you see "Absentee ballots" which old people and the US military does is awesome and amazing!!!
"Vote by mail" that is done by brown people and other Democrats is evil and fraudulent.

You might think "Hey aren't those the same thing?" That's where you would be wrong LIB!!!!!!

One helps Republicans more than demoncraps! CHECKERMATE!!! LIBERABURRITO!!!!!

(if you don't read twitter this is pretty close to what Trump actually argues)

Private_Citizen: Mugato: He can't actually cancel the election so this is his limp dick alternative.

Really, there has been mail in voting in FL since I can remember. Granted I can't remember very far but it's been there for a while. The military votes by mail. What is Trump afraid of?

The only problem I see with voting by mail is that it's not completely private so some drunken redneck husband beats his wife if she doesn't vote republican. So what's the problem?

Ironically, Trump voted by mail during this last election.


And when a reporter asked him about it, his answer was "Because I'm allowed to"

Well, more people will be allowed to, so fark off!

AdrienVeidt: thorpe: hammettman: By the time it's all said and done, this election is going to end up at the Supreme Court.  Which may be the plan.

It would have to be extremely close for that to happen in my opinion. I don't think this election will be close.

Vote.

Thank God treasonous dogshiat filth Republicans have a high regard for your opinion then.


Wow, 7 posts in a row from you. Did that feel righteous?

lawboy87: Azz Pumper: Just requested an Absentee Ballot for me and the wife here in Oklahoma.  Not that voting Democrat in Oklahoma really does any good with the electoral college and all.  Maybe some of the down ticket races will flip to BLUE!

Kendra Horn (D) pulled out the victory in the US House race (in OKC) against a 2 term Republican incumbent last time around.  Not to mention a number of State seats that flipped to Democratic candidates at the state level.  There's always hope, so long as the more progressive types turn out the vote.


Don't worry, there are efforts to keep that from happening too. Just look at how many progressives happily latch on to even the flimsiest attacks against Biden.

Perhaps not, but they do make excellent kindling.

Can you sue anyone for anything?

Like, if I had Trump's level of wealth could I sue McDonald's for selling hambugers? (Hamberders.)
