If trump somehow steals this election

Not that I think he will succeed, but if he does what will happen? I keep hearing people saying that the American people wonít stand for that, but really? All I see happening are protests around the country (similar to the ones this summer for George Floyd), riots and looting by right wing agitators, statements of Ďconcerní from a few Republicans, the MSM and pundits saying that this is unprecedented, trump and Barr using tear gas on D.C. protesters, the Democratic House investigating and probably impeaching, the senate acquitting....but in the end nothing really changes and Trump continues doing what he has done for the last 4 years, but more emboldened, his cult still worshipping him, and McConnell still confirming judges...

So Trump can request a recount in Georgia?

So what the hell was the purpose of the recount they just did?

One thing that worries me about Biden

He thinks that he can work with Republicans (or should I say that Republicans will work with him), I donít share his optimism but hope he is right.

Didn't think I would be pulling this out again until 2024

Biden still gets to 270 regardless of the shenanigans in Michigan and Arizona.

Wolf blitzer just called us The World's Greatest Democracy

Umm no....not even close

Probably all due to the republicans

Edit - to be fair to Wolf, it was about how Trump is destroying that claim

This is why Putin wanted trump to win

Not because trump was/is a Russian puppet, but because he knew this was the only way for America to fail. He knew that no one could beat America militarily or economically...But he knew that Trump could destroy us within...pitting us against each other, questioning our Democratic processes, making us look like a banana republic....we have no moral standing on the world stage and canít question other countries and their processes

State certification deadlines

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/when-do-states-certify-election-results/

Never thought I would be interested in when the actual state certified the vote....lol....I will feel much better on November 23rd when Pennsylvania is certified even if there are shenanigans in Michigan

Good article to calm my nerves

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/11/19/how-electoral-college-works-437749

Looks like the Republican legislatures canít choose their own electors without changing state law, in which they wonít be able to do with Democratic Governors...However, now I think Trumpís play is to screw these statesí certifications up where they donít send any electors so that Biden falls below 270 and then the House of Representatives (by state delegation) get to choose....even if he can screwup the Michigan certification it still wouldnít put Biden below 270.

I am actually getting nervous

I knew Trump would act like this once he lost and I knew republicans would be complicit, but damn this is crazy....Michigan alone is getting crazy and Biden won that state more comfortable than any other of the states trump is trying to steal....itís not a given that the State canvassers will certify the vote because it has the same partisan 2-2 makeup as the County canvassers and one of the republicans has already stated he has concerns and wants an audit.

Edit- and I donít trust the SCOTUS

The Democratic Georgia Senate candidates need to hammer that

A vote for them is a vote for a stimulus while a vote for their opponents would kill a stimulus deal. This needs to be plastered in their tv ads and in th4ir conversations with people.
