The worst part about Trump's anti-election campaign

Last edited Sat Nov 14, 2020, 11:40 AM - Edit history (1)

For years there has been a concerted effort to bring out the vote, and every year it has typically been a mixed bag. This year, the voters came out in droves and set records. This was while a pandemic was going on.

There was no significant voter fraud, there was no violence to speak of, and there really wasn't even much in the way of bad behaviors at the polling places. The election was apparently the most secure one yet.

So this really should be a source of nonpartisan national pride, a celebration of our democracy, a respectful transfer of power followed by unity. Instead of that, we have a partisan "contested" shitshow. Instead of that, we have consternation that we live in an autocracy where our votes may not actually count and the specter of SCOTUS intervention is being summoned from nothingness. Instead of that, we have the stage being set for the illegitimation and rejection of the President by nearly half the country.
