Ah yes, America, where voting isn't really that important

That's the sound of a collapsing democracy. Call Bob Vila.

What if they bought an election and nobody voted?

Can't we just call in the UN at this point? Any other country and we'd be invading them to get them back in line....

We'll just have to reschedule for 2022, which works out because Trump has claimed before that they should extend his term (and/or allow him to run for a third one) as an apology for the Mueller investigation.

What they actually mean is they don't have the money to pull off the election, as long as you're of the mindset that a complete, country-wide mail-in election isn't a good idea.

Last I heard, approval for a mail in election is like 65%, and that was back in May. It will only get higher as the virus danger doesn't actually lessen.

Why do you think Trump is accelerating the destruction of the USPS?

Remember when Republicans printed trillions of dollars for Wall Street, just to keep the stock market (and Trump's poll numbers) from crashing spectacularly?

Maybe this is weird for americans but not everything based on money, especially not democracy.

/it should be free to advertise on tv networks/newspapers for political ads
//should be the same amount per candidate by law

So, I guess Trump's demand to get an extra 2 free years because the media is so unfair to him is going according to plan.

There has always been a non-zero chance that we won't have a general election this November.

If no election is held Trump's term still ends in January. No election, no second term.

You keep telling yourself that.  If there is no election, Trump will make no move to leave office in January, and all the people with guns will continue to take orders from him.
