Donald Trump is attempting to delegitimize this election so he can stay in power. We have never had problems with voting fraud in this country, yet he has tried to stir up doubt and mistrust in the process ever since he got in office by a narrow margin.

He even threw a wrench in the U.S. Postal Service so he could say they can’t handle the load, which they clearly can if they’re given the opportunity and proper tools.

This is not about Republicans versus Democrats.

This is about Trump versus common sense and decency and the future of this great nation.

Don’t think it can’t happen here because it is happening here unless we vote him out.

If you want to have the opportunity to vote again in four years, vote now.

Steve, sorry but you are clueless on this subject including the postal service , The President has done nothing to harm Postal in fact he gave them $10Billion just recently and he has accomplished much for the citizens which I take that you don't care about and unlike the former president. who increased his personal wealth by more than $40 Million while in office , Trump is giving his salary to various charities

threecents

Maybe he should be using that salary to pay down his personal $400 million+ debt?

Veritas, do you also have a girlfriend, but she doesn't live around here? We wouldn't know her?

We get it pdl, you would have burned up with David Koresh.

There are drop boxes around the County, they are cheaper than mail, quicker than mail and if you give them your email address they let you know your ballot was received.

Trump is attempting an insurrection. No 2 ways about it.

NewMarketParent

@matts853

You are absolutely correct. Deciding to side-step a question about peaceful transition of power means that the Marines are going to have to drag him out when he loses.

How did you like the behind the scenes coup that Obama, Biden, Hillary, Brennan, Comey and others attempted in 2016?

NewMarketParent

@Reek

So you are now so desperate to cling to power that you are tossing out conspiracy theories. How many lead chips did you eat as a child?

So... the head of the FBI sat on information that he was investigating 45 and released information that he was investigating Clinton specifically so that Clinton would win election? If you believe that, it is impressive that you still manage to walk upright.

Bonzoid has nothing but straws to grasp at as his party goes down the sh**ter.

QAnon bosco strikes again. On his soapbox he exclaimed " There is not a conspiracy theory regarding Obama and Hillary that I don't believe in. I will faithfully spread the innuendo far and wide."

Greg F

How do you like the REAL LIFE violent coup in Michigan that was nearly taking place by the right wing nutjobs that your favorite idiot Trump is encouraging. You are hardly the one to point fingers or toss rocks from your glass house there Bonzo.

public-redux

bosco, Obama was president every single day of 2016. How could he participate in a coup against himself?

Blueline

To make the statement that "we have never had problems with voting fraud in this country..." is just flat out incorrect. You should read about the 1960 Presidential election, specifically Illinois.

NewMarketParent

Where is this anecdotal evidence you just made up on the spot?

veritas

This response reveals a deficiency of knowledge of US political history, which is not surprising considering its source.

NewMarketParent

@veritas

So please enlighten us. Make sure you don't leave out any nuance that might incorrectly color your story. I suspect you can't detail it without leaving out large convenient chunks that reframe it. So, by all means... go for it.

veritas

Ignorance is bliss -- and far be it from me to spoil anyone's joy. Those who seek to not be perceived as uncurious as their rhetoric suggests can, with just a few mouse clicks, expound upon, validate or discredit any claim, fact or factoid of their choice. Or, as my high school English teacher would say, "Don't expect me to do your research. Look it up!"

phydeaux994

Except you thought he said, if your research doesn’t say what you want it to say, MAKE IT UP!! 😂🤣

Greg F

The voter fraud is minor by all accounts and studies...and what there is was primarily done by trump and the GOP.

NewMarketParent

@veritas

As suspected, you got nothing.... Good old Burden of Proof Fallacy. I suspected as much and got as much.

https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2019/01/the-200-year-history-of-using-voter-fraud-fears-to-block-access-to-the-ballot/ Now, I know you will reject it because of the magazine, but it is factual. Sorry Veritas but your statement is simply not true.

veritas

[beam][beam] Au contraire, mes amis! My initial response to NMP did not attempt to validate the existence of rampant voter fraud. It was, rather, refutation of his claim that Blueline's reference to the 1960 presidential election results in Illinois was nothing but "anecdotal evidence (he) just made up." As anyone who has an interst in political history knows, the charge that the Democratic machine in Illinois -- and Chicago in particular -- may have engaged in voter fraud to put Kennedy over the top has achieved the dual status of both political lore and historical fact. The alleged Illinois chicanery is widely known and still in dispute but regardless, it is neither anecdotal nor "made up." I think it was worth pointing out that NMP apparently has insufficient curiosity to find out for himself what Blueline was referencing and whether it is applicable to the discussion.

matts853

That was 60 years ago, BEFORE the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act. So no comparison in the least.

We had evolved past Jim Crow, until Trump came along and hijacked the USPS and started removing post office boxes and mail sorters. So the only election fraud that’s happening now is Trump subverting your right to a free and fair election. He’s attempting a coup of our Democratic election. This is history in the making.

Dwasserba

Kennedy would've won anyway.

Greg F

So...now we are reaching back 60 years? Ok then, why not compare the McCarthyism going on in and around that era to what is going on now with the reich wingers calling everybody commie and socialist? Pretty much the same...except this is not an isolated thing...and it is now. Your pathetic party even was attempting to kidnap a governor and try her for treason? How fascist of them.

NewMarketParent

Thank you. Democracy is on the line and faciscm is trying its hardest to establish itself and take over the US. Too bad that many of the Republican cultists are ok with that as long as they are the ones that it rushes to power.

Almost 250 Benghazis yesterday.

Greg F

850 Benghazis in Wisconsin.....likely all to mean fewer Trump voters.

Reader1954

if you can stand in line to buy a stupid chicken sandwich then you can make an effort to vote in person

NewMarketParent

@Reader1954

You can vote, but you shouldn't have to vote in person. We have had procedures in place that have worked for the military, remote areas and a civil war. They have never come into question until Republicans thought it disadvantaged them.

Greg F

If you can walk to the mailbox or drive to a ballot drop off box, go do it before that sack of sh** succeeds in removing them. Mine are already in. Having 2 lost packages since DeJoy started destroying the post office, you need to do what you can to get that vote in to put that POS out.

Greg F

I fart on your chicken sandwich...and sneeze in your soda. Achhoo.

Not all all Fido, I have a life, a real PERFECT life and I am not glued to the keyboard. The last couple of days I took a PERFECT ride on the Harley, changed to oil and filter on my PERFECT truck, and PERFECTLY assembled an engine for a buddy's PERFECT vintage Corvette. Life is good.

Piddle...are you sure you don't have demented thoughts like Trump from Covid and Pink-Eye Pence? You sure sound like it.

Hayduke2

Pdl - take another sip of the Trumpaid before reality starts to creep in and you see how you have been duped. I think your bromance friends have a bunker full so you should be able to borrow a few gallons.

I'll just leave this here for you to ruminate on. This is Senator Mike Lee (R - Utah) last night: "Democracy isn’t the objective; liberty, peace, and prosperity are. We want the human condition to flourish. Rank democracy can thwart that."

“Maybe you do not care much about the future of the Republican Party. You should. Conservatives will always be with us. If conservatives become convinced that they can not win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. The will reject democracy.”
