The Achilles' Heel of Trump's schemes to override the votes of the American People is that he needs to be ahead or virtually tied with Biden on Election Night. If at the end of Election Night, Biden is clearly ahead of him and winning the Electoral College, Trump's best chance to steal the election is destroyed. So we must vote to be counted on Election Day.
He is trying to incite a racial war in America (to Putin's absolute delight). Racism worked for him before and Trump's going to dance with the Klansman who brung him.
Let's say it straight out: Tom Cotton is a racist. He condones slave labor but assigns it no value. He would never have freed a single man, but he would use bigot law to punish anyone who even holds a different opinion.
There is one person who could gum up the works of Trump's dictatorship-in-process. And he's not even in elected office. Yet. Joe Biden has said that this election is a battle for the very soul of America. So right now would be a good time for Biden to really flex on this, step up and fire a loud warning shot across the bow of Trump's henchmen. The Rule of Law is coming back in 2021...and it could be coming for them.
The evil, soulless wight in the White House has made The People his enemy. He called this fight because he hates all humanity; and in the end, all humanity will hate him.
Why is the president allowed to use his immense public power to attack private individuals out of infantile spite? Have we dispensed with the law altogether?
White Southerners are the most passive-aggressive people in the world and you don't even know when they are still fucking with you. I want to shout at people of color to facepalm themselves for not seeing the codes sometimes.
Our current systems give us absolutely no accountability. The HUGEST problem is that votes can simply be thrown away or shredded. And they are, by the hundreds of thousands. Also, we individually have no actual proof that our vote was counted. Or, for whom it was counted.
White Supremacist Ideology – let’s call it what it is -- is a creation of people who chose that designation for themselves, then created a legal, scientific, and social framework to normalize it. It is an Ideology that must be destroyed by those who continue to see themselves as so defined rejecting the very definition and embracing a true humanity.
This looks more like the last stage of a coup. Consolidating power in himself by stacking the courts as his puppets, discrediting belief in the truth by attacking the press as fake and rigging elections with voter suppression. Spreading propaganda and lies while facilitating Russian-aided disinformation on social media. Trying to shut down the postal service which means shutting down voting by mail. Lastly, raising a fascist, well armed militia to stand against his political enemies. The threat to our democracy couldn't be more urgent.
