I said on here months ago that if they try to postpone the election there will be mass-protests and riots in the streets.

Some farkers replied that there most certainly would not be mass protests and riots by basically saying that a whole lot of other shiat has happened before where people would be outraged and then just move on once the next distraction came along.

Well, if the past few weeks have proven anything.....

There is a small element of comedy in this idiocy.

A relatively simple way to provide more convenience to voting is early voting -- live, in person voting at polling places, but on multiple days prior to election day, including weekends, so that people don't have to take off work to vote, or get crowded into long lines in the evening after they get out from work and hurry home.

In Pennsylvania, early voting was proposed. Republicans don't like early voting. They don't like making it easier for working people to vote. They don't like that black churches use Sunday voting to organize church members, to encourage them to vote, and to get them to the polls.

Republicans favor mail voting -- it makes it more convenient to vote in rural areas (which they see as their voter), makes it more convenient for snowbirds to vote (again, people that can afford two homes -- their voter).

So when PA's republican dominated legislature recently amended the election code to provide a form of early voting, what did they do? Mail in voting, to favor their voters.

Now their Trump-commanded base is complaining about the type of voting Republicans wanted and complain about the lack of in person voting safeguards --- which they would have had if they'd allowed the in person early voting Democrats preferred.

And they have to twist themselves into intellectually deficient twisty-ties while biatching about the voting their party preferred. Sad/comic face.

You consider a 20% fraud rate acceptable?

What happens if you hold an election with such a questionable turnout, but it does not go the way you want and Trump wins.  Will you accept the outcome or rant about Russian/Chinese/alien collision for the next four years?
Will you condone a leftist shooting the place up in anger because they saw reports of a bunch of ballots getting dumped? Will you call for endless investigations and recounts?

Personally it feels to me like America was done sometime during the Reagan administration.  Once Nixon & Kissinger's pioneering in electoral shenanigans, deficit spending, deregulation, fearmongering, media takeover, rampant warmongering (and profiteering!), and winner-take-all politics within the 2-party system demolishing any remaining concept of a "loyal" opposition really got going in high gear, it was always going to be nigh impossible to wrench the far-right fascists from power.

I think in 2016-2020, they simply stopped pretending to be anything but far-right fascists, and decided they don't want to pay anymore for the bread & circuses that distracted us since 1980...

Not_Todd: Absentee voting is not the same as voting by mail. You have to request an absentee ballot. With vote-by-mail every name on the registered voter list gets sent a ballot. If that list has not been updated (and the one in LA, for example, has not been culled in over 20 years), then there will be lots of ballots sent to the last address of people who have died or moved out of state. Collecting these ballots, filling them out with a straight-line Democrat ticket, and handing them in with no checking to see if they are valid is what "ballot harvesting" is all about.

Are you naive, or disingenuous?

I have yet to see any evidence of successful vote-by-mail fraud.  What I have seen is a lot of delusion-based paranoia over allowing as many registered voters to cast ballots as possible.

If it's successful you won't see it by definition. I guess I have more faith in humanity to be dirty lying shiatbags.

Conservatives have yet to explain how voting by mail is more susceptible to fraud than voting in person.

Not a conservative, but vote by mail ballots are out of custody of the election staff and and more easily switched/ stolen.


There have been nearly 50 million general-election ballots cast in vote-by-mail states.  The Heritage Foundation lists 29 cases of vote-by-mail fraud among them.

Well let's see how the voters feel about your zero fraud rate:

Reporting by NBC further uncovered citizens of Paterson who are listed as having voted, but who told the news outlet they never received a ballot and did not vote. One woman, Ramona Javier, after being shown the list of people on her block who allegedly voted, told the outlet she knew of eight family members and neighbors who were wrongly listed. "We did not receive vote-by-mail ballots and thus we did not vote," she said. "This is corruption. This is fraud."

Apparently the victims of fraud disagree that there was no fraud.
The test of the system isn't when you win, it's whether you still accept the results if you lose. If you lose and get a notice that your vote was discarded because of a mismatched signature, will you accept the outcome?Of course you won't. This becomes a new thing to biatch about.  A reason to contest the election and gum up the works, as happened....But you expect the other guy won't biatch, won't accuse you of fraud, won't cheat, and won't point to the same piles of discarded/missing/invalidated votes as proof they were short changed?That's short sighted to the point that it's bound to end in disaster. A contested election is the last thing anyone needs.

The fark are you blathering about?  Trump was crying fraud even while voting was going on, and farking won.
This time around, when he gets his ass beat in the electoral college, he's still going to cry fraud.

Your comments notwithstanding, it is not common for U.S. political candidates to cry fraud or dispute elections.  The man child in the White House is the anomaly here.

common sense is an oxymoron: RedVentrue: common sense is an oxymoron: Alien Robot: common sense is an oxymoron: The actual fraud rate was zero.  These bozos got caught because the vote-by-mail system worked.

The USCBP and Coast Guard catches all the drugs that cross the border. They are no foreign drugs in America. It's all domestic production. Every time they catch a shipment, that's proof the drug interdiction system works perfectly. None slip through. Amirite?

Worst.  Analogy.  Ever.

Do you think you don't need to register in order to vote by mail?  Or that each ballot received isn't checked against that list of registered voters?

If sowing paranoia over a delusion is your go-to strategy at this point, it might be a long election night for the red team.

Are you naive, or disingenuous?

I have yet to see any evidence of successful vote-by-mail fraud.  What I have seen is a lot of delusion-based paranoia over allowing as many registered voters to cast ballots as possible.


If it's successful you won't see it by definition. I guess I have more faith in humanity to be dirty lying shiatbags.

A must read.

The danger in reading it is that you might fall in love with Speer.

But, like the OSS guys who interrogated him said, "It's just a shame you weren't on our side".

That might qualify as one of the few non-fiction books I might read.


His prison diaries are a good read too, and similarly revealing about the Third Reich's power-structure.

Gitta Sereny's book on him pretty much pops the balloon on the love fest that the West had with Speer - basically getting him to admit at the end of her numerous interviews to what he refused to confess to back in the day (knowingly using slave labor), and reminding readers that this "nice man" was also an evil man.

And was caught immediately

How can something be caught that the Dems have maintained doesn't exist? That would be a neat trick.

Examples like this, which you pants-wetting conservatives claim is proof of fraud, instead prove that vote-by-mail works at both detecting fraud attempts and identifying the perpetrators.

Cry harder.

You consider a 20% fraud rate acceptable?

What happens if you hold an election with such a questionable turnout, but it does not go the way you want and Trump wins.  Will you accept the outcome or rant about Russian/Chinese/alien collision for the next four years?
Will you condone a leftist shooting the place up in anger because they saw reports of a bunch of ballots getting dumped? Will you call for endless investigations and recounts?
I suspect it wouldn't go down well with the fark crowd.

We still have people crying foul over the last election when most polls had far fewer issues.
You're mad if you think this isn't going to end in disaster.

The actual fraud rate was zero.  These bozos got caught because the vote-by-mail system worked.

The fraud occured the moment the ballot was cast so it wasn't a zero rate.


Reaching, reaching, a little more...

In 2016, Trump had to sweep FL, MI, PN, WI, MI... Hillary had to just win one of those states and she was in. He swept them. I remember monitoring the returns that night and she came in a bit light on the cities with little reporting from yet the rural counties. It was clear early in the evening that he won and she blew it big time.

It can happen again. Same challenge... Biden wins one and Trump falls.

Biden has a lock on a ton of delegate rich states. Trump sweeps the south.

Hillary barely gave any of those swing states attention because 'she was so far ahead in the national polls.'

My Klezmer Metal Cover Band: GrogSmash: Personally, I am looking forward to the EPIC level shiatstorm that follows the election, as the Lame-Duck does everything in his power to invalid the results in his favour.

And when that fails...  what he does as his final 'scorched earth' retribution.

I'm not. Perhaps it is a remnant of my family's own 'never forget, never forgive' mentality or maybe it is just because once in a while I read something other than Fark and the back of cereal boxes. But the Nero Decree was only prevented, in the end, because the horrified Speer knew what it would mean for Germany.

You think there is a Speer in the current White House, ready and willing to defy Hair Twitler? Our luck has been just spectacular so far ...


That is your only hope unfortunately...  that you have enough people willing to defy illegal orders, knowing what the consequences will be.

But most of those have been purged already.

Too late, Donny.
Oh, and when they hold you in prison prior to the execution of your sentence for war crimes, treason, and crimes against humanity, enjoy the few moments of freedom they give you when they pull you out to stand trial for tax fraud, mail fraud, and stonks manipulation, stripping you of any monetary credit you and your kin have left. They will body cavity search you coming and going.

FTFA: They're also seeking an order that bars the county election board from counting absentee and mail-in ballots that "lack a secrecy envelope" or have any text or symbols on envelopes revealing the elector's identity, party affiliation or candidate preference.

So if I mail my ballot in with my return address on the postal envelope my ballot is void ?
I've been a life-long resident of PA, so I wouldn't be surprised.

WTFDYW: GrogSmash: And thus begins the legal battle of a President who is terrified that he has so royally screwed the pooch that he is going to lose the election.

Only four months to go folks.  Your election process is about to get reamed so badly its going to need a cholostomy bag afterwards.

I'll do walk in voting if I have to. I will be voting. This clown has got to go.


You are assuming walk-in voting will be allowed.

I don't know how, but I am willing to bet that is going to farked over as well, and some system put in place that only favors the rich, sorry, I mean assures the health and safety of the proud working class citizens, while ensuring that fraud is kept to a minimum.

Some sort of expensive prescreening that allows for online voting perhaps?  Also easily rigged.

The mail in primary voting here in PA was the most farked up thing I have ever seen.. misprinted ballots all over the place..

My two neighbors, both Democrats who have lived here 20+ years and live in the same household, received ballots with different US and PA rep choices on it.

I saw this on the nightly news a bit ago, I wish it wasn't a video but I can't find a transcript.
For states that haven't done massive mail-in voting before, there are a lot of hurdles to be able to do it. I'm kinda crushed.
Well worth listening to, you won't be surprised later.
