So basically, they're all in on dictatorship.

VOTE, motherf*ckers. And be prepared to shut everything down if they even TRY to override the results.

The best way to do it is an overwhelming win.

All states have a recount threshold. The election has to be within a certain percentage, usually within half a percentage point, to trigger a recount, and the courts simply can't do anything about it.

Let Biden be a 2 or 3 point winner in the key states, and Trump can scream all he wants; his handpicked SCOTUS will be powerless.

Republicans say the legal positions they are taking to stop efforts to expand mail-in voting are intended to safeguard existing election laws from being changed so close to Election Day.

Go talk to your buddy Scott on this one.

I really seriously and heavily hope that Biden takes an early lead on election night, and that his lead continues to grow as the night progresses, so that trump and his cronies have no point at which they can claim "trump's ahead now! election over! No more votes count!"

...and that as the absentee ballots roll in and get counted over the next couple days, Biden's comfortable lead grows into a historically epic landslide victory for him.

The only way to stop trump is to crush him completely. America needs to stomp him flat.

Timely tip for FARKers:

You can get rid of the "?" and everything after it, like so:

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2​0​20/09/republican-senator-bill-illegal-​mail-vote-count-deadline.html

I learned this when reading books with footnotes containing ridiculously long URLs (this is often compounded by using the same damn URL when the source is cited again; see my monograph The Lost Art of Copy Editing).

Bonus: If you use the shortened URL, as above, on other sites, in email, etc., no one will catch on to the fact that you've been slumming on FARK.

We have that covered after we win.  By executive order the President will make all semi automatic rifles and pistols prohibited weapons under the firearms act.  Republicans will have to apply for a permit.  There is so much red tape and consequences most won't.  We will, essentially, legally take the guns.  We will pack the SCOTUS with Progressives and reinterpret the 2nd amendment to mean the national guard.  We will then have legally and lawfully taken all guns.  We will become a modern progressive nation.

Joe Biden 'Double Barrel Shotgun' Comments Draw Buzz While Answering Questions on Gun Control
Youtube 2_LEfNFMAys


"Buy a shotgun" says Joe Biden. "Get a double-barrelled shotgun". "Just walk out, put that shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house."

Australia where I live favours evidence based gun control. Biden favours discharging firearms in built-up suburban areas. The two are very farking different.

Well, yeah. It's in the name. One of our two parties named itself after democracy because they like democracy and the other named itself after some other thing.

If a Democrat wants something and nobody else wants it, he or she figures out how to persuade enough people to do the thing or changes that position.

If a Republican wants something and nobody else wants it, he figures out how to do it anyway.

Let's say we work on things that cause gun violence. Equal justice, robust mental health system, living wages, affordable housing, etc.. BEFORE we go off stealing people's property and removing their ability to defend themselves. We can be a progressive Democratic nation and maintained the integration of 2A.

Legal is what ever the courts say is legal. And how do you think Trump-appointed judges will rule?

And this is the whole point. It's not about Donnie, it's not even about this particular election. It's about continuing to chip away at all the civic institutions on which our nation relies. It's about fear, uncertainty, and doubt. And I wonder whose agenda that would serve..
