When the 'rona was popping off I texted and e-mailed multiple people to put this in writing. Sending it back to all the doubters now.

he's trying everything he can, but this will not be delayed. he can't make that call.

plus he can't stay in office after whatever date in January 2021. his term will end.

he's an asshole.

Y'all buy those labels, I was born supreme

Anyway, he hasn't the power as POTUS to change his election date, no matter what his boyfriend Colludy Giuliani told him--because of what he was able to do in NYC during the 9/11 aftermath.

In FL early voting should be 10 days prior to the election. My wife and I discussed making plans to vote.

So we are going to take Tues Oct 27th off. Get there early and vote. I am not missing out on this election!

If a fat guy falls in the woods and there is no one around to see it, do the trees laugh?

...if it isn't obvious yet, he's fucking with you and seems like a lot of people, even those who hate him, are falling for it

We are starting step one now.

Step 1: Open Schools/Go back to work

Step 2: Overwhelm the country with massive amounts of infections

Step 3: National Shutdown (Lockdown) by mid/late October

Step 4: Postpone/Cancel Elections


The question is what do we do on Nov 3rd when there is no election??

since the house of reps terms expire if there is no election. so do a lot of the senate which leaves a dem majority in the senate. either way its a dem so your point stands.

In response to Reply # 13


  

          

i was wondering why batman would come up when i searched him. i think the senate can actually select someone else so it wouldnt necessarily be him but as of right now it would be.


we would be naive to assume trump would just let this succession happen either though. at least the DHS seems to be fully behind him. im sure there are some segments of other departments/forces that would stand behind him if he claimed he was still president.

really hope it doesnt come to this.

It’s going to come down to a few swing states and the fuckery from this administration is serious.

Obama’s guy... so Black voters are familiar with him

Old white guy.. decent amount of racist quotes in his past to make old white peoples comfortable

His gaffes and rangers are the only thing that worry me. Dude will start out talking policy and next thing you know he is talking about the hair on his legs.

nobody else had any real black support and bernie would have been non competitive in swing/red states that are in play with biden like nc, fl, tx, ga, etc (while killing a lot of downballot/senate hopes).

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Instead, I hope early voting gets used more. Open more polling places, open them up a couple of weeks before the election, and extend the hours. Basically make it possible to socially distance.


Most states and a lot of people aren't ready for it. Ballots are getting rejected due to missing signatures, being sent late, lacking postmarks, etc.



In New Jersey, 7% of absentee ballots were rejected
https://twitter.com/ElectProject/status/1287789285823971329?s=19

Same thing in New York:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/tens-of-thousands-of-mail-ballots-have-been-tossed-out-in-this-years-primaries-what-will-happen-in-november/2020/07/16/fa5d7e96-c527-11ea-b037-f9711f89ee46_story.html

"In New York, more than 1.7 million mail ballots were requested for the June primary, compared with about 115,000 that were submitted during the 2016 presidential primary.

The deluge overwhelmed election officials, who are still tabulating the results of some races. In the process, large numbers of mail ballots have been rejected because they arrived late, were missing a postmark or lacked a voter signature — as much as 19 percent in parts of Manhattan and Queens and 28 percent in parts of Brooklyn, according to preliminary tabulation figures obtained by The Washington Post."

In response to Reply # 22


  

          

mail in ballot...with all of the flaws involved with its sudden implementation...is gonna be the only way a lot of people can safely vote in november.

a lot of usual voting precincts will close because they dont have enough poll workers (overwhelmingly seniors who will back out due to the threat to their health).

we have already seen this play out in several places during the primaries. and republicans refuse to pass the funding to help the states transition of mail in voting...while also tightening the requirements for casting an absentee/mail in ballot in some states.

some republican legislatures even passed laws just to prohibit election officials from sending out absentee ballot requests to all registered voters (after doing that during the primary dramatically increased turnout).

then you have trumps newly installed ally sabotaging the post office and intentionally delaying mail to fuck up ballot send/receive time.

repubs saw how there was a plausible excuse to suppress the vote during the primaries and have decided to use that as part of their usual strategy instead of working to remedy it.

In response to Reply # 23


  

          

maybe i can do that for election day. maybe some hours on early voting.

being in texas i am not counting on voting by mail. theres been a back and forth. i plan to just do early voting. hopefully that doesnt get hindered.
