    Rampant election fraud has always occurred on both sides in US presidential elections, especially in my lifetime. We only care about it when our side loses.

    There was the Diebold machine election controversy in 2004, which Republicans have conveniently forgotten about this time around. There hasn't been a Republican election in my lifetime where they didn't try to steal it.

    Republicans are always talking about election fraud, but they do nothing to fix the issue. We still defend them, like we're doing in this thread. Even the supposed politically-atheistic Libertarians.

    Republicans love to point to election fraud to direct peoples' attention away from their pathetic platform. Romney Republicanism is not popular. Bush Republicanism is not popular. McCain Republicanism is not popular. There's a reason these guys got fucking steamrolled by Obama.

    Republicans will say "There sure are a lot of DEAD voters in California!" (as if they could ever fucking win California) because it's a way to gaslight their supporters and make it seem like they are somehow the winning side, but the other team cheated. They have the right ideas, and they are truly moral and virtuous. The fact of the matter is, the Republicans have shitty ideas and they're also not virtuous.

    Part of the reasons Democrats win is because their campaign platform does more for regular people. Just to be clear, it's not like they actually go through with it. I'm not a Democrat. They too are establishment neo-liberals. But their message speaks about things that matter to regular Americans. Meanwhile, McConell, in the middle of a lockdown, is concerned about a second round of stimulus because it'll "hurt people's work ethic".

    The Republicans are trying to run on Ronald Reagan talking points to win an election in 2020, which only 6% of the electorate actually believes in. Ironically, the amnesty on illegals which was to primarily help Big Business (the GOP has always been in bed with Big Business) meant that Reagan's own political moves made it very difficult (if not impossible) for Republicans to ever win a national election ever again in the future by turning so many of these states permanently blue.

    Trump lost this one because his message doesn't speak to normal Americans, and the last 4 years have shown him to be just another establishment Republican. People don't want to be fed more lines about conservative bootstrap-ism economics, only to then watch their conservative leadership send billions in COVID-19 stimulus to Wall St. or set up 10-year arms deals with Saudi Arabia. What's in it for them?

    Average Americans are, understandably, finding less and less troubling with the idea of taking every fucking cent they can from the US government if it is going to improve their lives and let them have a family. Ideas like Universal Basic Income, and student loan forgiveness, don't compute with white, boomer Republicans because they came up and made their wealth in a post-WW2 America which simply no longer exists. We live in a world where wages haven't kept up with growth, and have absolutely flat-lined since the early 2000's. Typically, those vehemently opposed to UBI (or muh socialism) are those who not affected by student loan debt. Those who, due to the era in which they were born, are economically removed from the associated hardship. They are not living it, so predictably they don't care about it.

    Yes, this generation worked hard but they have deluded themselves into thinking they gained all their success and riches solely on their own merit, and not because their side had effectively bombed their economic enemies into submission. There was no legitimate economic competitor to the US and therefore there was unparalleled economic prosperity. They don't understand the empire is now decaying, and things don't work that way anymore. It doesn't surprise me that these hyper-individualistic boomers can't understand UBI, debt jubilees or the idea that what happens elsewhere in the country will eventually affect them.

    After nearly a month of this election malarkey, it does seem like the only people who still think Trump primarily lost this due to voter fraud are those who are Extremely Online, and get their sense of reality from their online echo-chambers.

    Or..,maybe a subtle hint to kemp in GA (for example) that he best not certify if he KNOWS there is fraud.

    Again, a guy can hope.

    I think he was referred to about 400 pages ago, but couldn't see anything recent.

    Nice to listen to someone who can speak eloquently and without using 'literally' and 'like' every sentence.
    This is an excellent 10 minutes, hadn't seen it before. Who is this guy?

    These remarks, among several others in this post, demonstrate a rather profound detachment from the reality of the past 40 years, and the past 4 in particular.

    Don't defendants always get to see the evidence against them? She needs to walk into court and convince a judge of something, or stop having press conferences claiming a bunch of stuff.
    Imagine being dumb enough to think that press conferences are a courtroom.

    Contrary to what the Fakenews has conditioned you to believe, they are not who decides cases.

    She needs to stop? I thought you get to accuse someone of stealing an election for at least three years? I mean there's precedent with the shitbirds on almost every major network.

    Speak for yourself, I think arms deals are a great idea. It provides a lot of jobs and brings money into the economy. Look at Sweden, it's arms dealing that provides much of the money for it's social programs.

    This is a very interesting piece that implies important things about how much we don't really know: Trump's BRILLIANT Pre-Election Executive Order that Trapped Democrats

    Oh my God...

    Sidney Powell interview yesterday on Newsmax

    Legal team has evidence of 7 million votes stolen from @realDonaldTrump
    10 million illegal votes cast for Biden
    Several million votes cast by dead people.
    Photos of the checks proving people were paid.
    Many witnesses needing Federal Witness Protection.

    L Lin Wood confirms the above is true

    I'll stop typing now. Exciting times.

    I mean it won't all be bad.

    It seems many Americans are looking forward to serving their new overlords as flesh-units.
