We have lots here who want another vote because they didnt like the result??? Dictatorship?? Minority rule?? Donnies not getting a delay it's just to bring some doubt into the election already, just in case he cant rig the postal vote better than the democrats can?? It does not make it right that it's all bent but open both eyes, accept it's all crooked and chose your leader...
I think it is accepted that voting fraud in Florida swung the election away from Gore in favour of Bush junior. Gore was then paid off with the Carbon Tax scam.
The endless whining about the Brexit vote was nauseating. A 'Peoples vote' was demanded. The Boris landslide finally put an end to this.
Losing a vote should never in a democracy mean that you cannot then continue fighting your corner and for your politics. Unfortunately here the losing side have worked tirelessly and continually against the country whilst hiding behind the above... The continual fight and delaying tactics worked for the other side(there has to be sides in this of some description) and the idea that damaging our own side was in any way acceptable is unbelievably stupid and self centred.. Damaging 67 million peoples prospects to somehow try and prove a point is where we are at, cv19 has unfortunately been misused as a weapon against our own government and the lost vote. There is no moving on and working for the good of everyone for some, it's all about losing a vote they never thought they could and the bitterness just burns for them and they will damage other peoples prospects to cheer themselves up.. it's sad more than anything else, I lost the vote ...I lost a vote last week because 2 of my kids voted against me, we move on and all work to make that decision successful...
When asked by a reporter (in reference to the QAnon conspiracy theory) if he was secretly working to save the world from a Satanic cult of paedophiles and cannibals, Trump said:
“Well I haven’t heard that, but is that supposed to be a bad thing or a good thing? You know, if I can help save the world from some problems, I’m willing to do it, I’m willing to put myself out there. And we are actually, we’re saving the world from a radical left philosophy that will destroy this country, and when this country is gone the rest of the world would follow.”
I`ve seen the footage of the incident and its horrific, makes your blood run cold, seems to be taken either from a neighbour who was filming the initial arguing, or a fixed camera (perhaps security camera), gun control is an emotive subject especially across the pond but im so glad we have gun controls here in the UK, for every 1000 sensible responsible holders of firearms there is always going to be a nutcase who's primed to tip over the edge!
Made me laugh at how the Trump defence were lauding their 'success'. You could have put me in charge of that and the result would have been the same.
Maybe Mitch McConnell is just hoping that the legal system takes care of him, so that he won't have to be accused of being part of the rebel team that kicked him out of politics.
I wonder if anyone will stand up to him at some point? I can see a Jimmy Savile type scandal coming out after he's gone. Not in the sense of the same crimes, just loads of dodgy shite that he's managed to keep a lid on.
Meanwhile, in the land of liberty, Republicans are continuing to try and restrict voting with a new law passed in Georgia.
Less drop boxes, ID needed when voting by mail, etc. I think the most blatant one is that they've now made it illegal to give anyone waiting in line to vote, food or water.
Giving a voter who is waiting in line to vote (which could take between 1-6 hours waiting in a queue) a bottle of water is now a criminal offence in the state of Georgia.
Land of the free.
It's a weird old place right now.
Voter suppression has been a thing over there anyway, but this sort of thing just smacks of engineering a bias so blatantly.
As you say, they'll claim to be the most democratic place on the planet.
Democracy really is under threat nowadays. Quite bizarre, that while many oppressed countries rise up to gain those democratic freedoms, the ones who have built their countries around them, are trying to constrain them.
Welcome to a planet run by an elite that can't do with too much democracy in place...
