36. My thoughts exactly

I'm not as hopeful as Schmidt's post leads on. Trump and his supporters (also known as "fuckers" will sow chaos and create so much uncertainty that we're in for a very rough post-election period. Very rough.

The R's response to RBG's death will be an America-breaker. I truly believe the American experiment has run its course. As much as I want the USA to be the leader in every respect, I'm afraid that China will take that position within a decade or less. And, it won't be the "good" world leadership that the US and Europe has been providing since WW2.

2. Me too

In the meantime we must fight and persevere as if we are behind. We must take NOTHING for granted. Know they will cheat and lie and it will get uglier by the day.

that shithole will use a EO to stop the 2020 election because Biden is not presidential.

24. He was trying to be funny. I think what it shows is that he knows he's losing,

and is willing to use ANYTHING at his disposal to stop the election—AND that they are looking at every option.
So, anyway you look at it, this will not be over November 3, if he loses.
It's going to go on for months afterward.

5. I expect we win the presidency and the Senate but I'm not optimistic about the court

I think they will confirm Barrett, and I seriously doubt we have the votes (e.g. Manchin, Sinema) to pack the court.

And they will almost definitely use that to whatever advantage they can gain.

25. So, IF we take the Senate, keep the House, and

win the Presidency, it would be a simple majority in Congress (from my understanding of the Constitution, and I truthfully don't claim to be an expert by any means, so someone please correct me if I'm wrong) to create the two new States, DC and Puerto Rico, which are both GROSSLY overdue.

From there, that is your impetus to expand the court, so as to give equal representation to the two new states.

It's certainly not impossible, and if the Trump regime taught us anything (assuming we WIN in November), it's that we MUST. BE. BOLD. Enact REAL change that levels ther playing field, or there won't be a field to play on anymore.

21. Thank you for sharing. Quoted his tweet to an English friend.

She wrote me a wonderful email, peppering it with color ways for It to die. In writing back I felt Schmidt's words would offer solace and comfort in our grief. I take it that way and need them so much today.

23. Agree with Steve. We need to get tougher

and start thinking out of the box. The system was already rotten and heavly slanted towards the right, and Trump/McConnell are simply rubbing our noses in that fact.
