Despite all the polls currently favoring the Democrats. If the economy really begins to recover and the first wave of Covid-19 subsides (without a second wave striking), Donald Trump’s reelection prospects could improve greatly. The Republican Party and Trump 2020 Campaign have huge war chests ready to fund ads galore, massive targeted outreach, and widespread voter suppression.
So when the reporter asked Pence the question, “is it harder for black Americans to make in this country?” his rambling answer tells us what we already know. He is far too afraid to admit the truth, Yes, it is harder for African-Americans to make it in this country.
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.
Last night we saw a glimpse of a police state where Americans were all seen as the enemy. Where the press was seen as an enemy of the state, the very thing Trump has been pushing and that is also the sign of authoritarian domination. When all people and the press are treated as threats to be crushed in the name of "security", when the police and military dehumanize the public and press, democracy hangs by a thread.
Democratic politicians are giving Trump all the rope he wants - to hang himself. But that is murder.
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.
A totally political judiciary is the same as no judiciary at all. This is a principle goal of the mafia, to destroy the rule of law. With the United States Congress and Supreme Court having become wholly-owned subsidiaries of Trump Enterprises, that just leaves one branch, on a rotten tree.
Trump sees the protection of Americans from a pandemic as "a worse choice" than having a weakened economy that denies him re-election. So he is bravely winding up for a pitch to demand that "nature be allowed to run its course" in the killing of 11 million Americans by COVIC-19.
Of the debates I have watched, I was not impressed. The message must be around how they will defeat Trump* restore and shore up our democratic process by making sure our election process is strongly resistant to foreign interference.
Our electoral system in this country is shot full of holes. It is unstable, unreliable, and fragile. It is extremely vulnerable. It is unconstitutional because it is unfair.
