Is this how democracy dies? Everyone suing everyone else?

You want to put a stop to these shenanigans? Have a Dem sue after a loss. They'll probably just change the rules to say "Dem's can't sue" but it will be worth the consternation for the few hours.

Nah.  It's dies when Biden politicizes the Investigative units (FBI etc) for his party.

Which he did and we are on the path.

The episode, posted to right-wing video sharing site Rumble, highlighted a phenomenon that has grown over the past two years in Kansas and the country as a whole. A growing collection of citizens no longer trust the outcomes of elections and promote claims of massive fraud without any basis or proof.

And there's your "Mission Accomplished" from Putin, Bannon, Trump, and every autocratic, aristocrat-wannabee mutherfarker greed-head in the GOP.  Democracy has always been what's wrong with America to those assholes.

Why don't the Mini-Fooze just declare the Elections stolen in advance of Poll Day like Donald Trump did in 2016, 2020 and 2024?

I know, I know. One of those Elections has not happened yet, but technically I am right and everybody knows it. and if you want proof you clearly don't watch Fox News.

It's not 'politicizing the FBI' to investigate actual crimes. You're thinking of what the GOP did in 2016, after Hillary had been REPEATEDLY cleared by Republicans' own investigations.

These attorneys need start getting fines for frivolous lawsuits unless they can demonstrate evidence to support the filing. This would be more effective than attacking the fools that hire them. It would be unprecedented to target them for this for a single issue but so is the practice of filing BS suits to destroy our Democracy.

They DO. You can and should file a countersuit to that effect if you are ever sued for any reason.

Most people don't know this because civil lawyers charge you $55 just to tell you that.

But but constitutional sherrifs and fringe flags and admiralty jurisdictiom being illegal and sovereign citizens and consent to enjoinder are ALL in the Constitution, written by Jesus with bald eagle tears, right next to the part about America being a white Christian nation with a national ban on abortion and a republic and Donald Trump being the chosen prophecised one and banning Democrats that just hasn't been enforced yet because of globalists and Fox News being the fourth equal branch of government with more powers than the rest so your argument is invalid and Trump gets infinity terms as President without needing election as the rightful VP who is JFK Jr gets to appoint the electrical collage but since he is in cryogenic stasis Trump gets those powers as well and also his voters automatically get a million dollars and a lambo each and don't need car plates and automatic pardons for anything done if you HEREBY DECLARE you're doing it for Trump and Jebus.

/Now I'm confused. Are they bound by the Constitution with the eagle tears seekrit page, just not the plain English parts?

This is false, except in truly abnormal circumstances.  There's a reason why the principle that everyone pays their own legal fees in civil litigation is call the "American Rule."

I've been involved in four different lawsuits over the same dumb shiat. It's not false.

The only time it didn't work was when a judge decided the plaintiff was indigent and that paying court fees would be unduly burdensome (which was incredibly weird considering the plaintiff never claimed to be and our attorney is pretty sure the judge was confusing him with a different case).

They can't think that logically. Any party or org with the power to alter ballots after they have been cast, change matter into energy, and bend spacetime the way these jelloheads believe democrats can should also be able to run the table on congressional and local races.

Using their "reasoning" not a single republican should have won any public office since ever. If you're going to make sure the top of the ticket wins, why not the rest? Imagine congress and state legislatures with no republicans?

IDIOT: See, this shows how deep the rigged elections go, the courts are in on it.

If people want to believe the elections are rigged there is nothing anybody can do to stop them from believing they were rigged. The only solution would be if the people encouraging this stuff would state the truth such that people do not want to believe they are rigged as much.

Seriously, though. There's NO version of that "fraud election" theory where stealing the election for Biden would have been easier than stealing it for Stacy Abrams.
