fernt: theknuckler_33: fernt: Unsolicited blanket mailing out ballots is bad. Solicited absentee ballots are good.

That has been Trump's consistent message which the left has continued to obfuscate.

No one is obfuscating Trump's message. They're just pointing out that the message is stupid, because it is.

God, I hope Trump strokes out on the 3rd, waiting for Arizona, Ohio, and Pennsylvania ballots to be counted.

SuspiciousNewAccount: Holy crap! I read that initially as "GOP Robocop" and was filled with a sense of impending doom. Don't give them any ideas.


Put down the ballot. You have ten seconds to comply.

Damnit, these rocket surgeons have figured out the Dems were running a reverse psychology bluff and now they might have time to recover from their flat spin.

So many people here are convinced that this messaging from the GOP/Trump is just another misguided effort at doublespeak.   While some of them are stupid enough to do this, the smarter ones know that they have no chance at a legitimate victory at the polls. What they are doing is laying the propaganda groundwork for a claim of losing due to election fraud.  I don't know exactly what their game plan is when that happens, but I can safely assume that it won't be good.

It is entirely within the realm of possibility that they will refuse to cede power and try a thinly disguised coup. These assholes appear to have decided that it is better to risk being hung for treason than to face the inevitable charges for lesser crimes they have committed while in office.

Myrdinn: Zathras approves.  But, Zathras is not happy.


There were actually TEN Zathrases, but I guess if they all tried to vote, a Republican could say because they were all clones it would be a clear cut case of voter fraud.

///only if they were Democrats

///if they were Republicans, the GOP would say "Fine, go ahead with whatever you want to do."

Yes, they mail them out to all registered voters.  CA is pretty much all vote by mail right now.  This is a problem... because?

Moron, all that says is "Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Friday he has signed an executive order that allows all California voters to receive a mail-in ballot for the November election."

It says nothing about sending out unsolicited absentee mail in ballots.

Do you know the way to Mordor: Myrdinn: Zathras approves.  But, Zathras is not happy.

"Zathras big hero! Maybe someone build statue of Zathras. People come, remember Zathras."
