      We spend a lot of time here dealing with everything that’s going wrong in the world. Rather a lot. The goal isn’t to be pessimistic, nor is it to be optimistic, the goals is to be realistic. But in some eras realism can be fairly depressing. So I think it’s important to remember that there’s still a lot of good in life. Love, food, beauty, excitement and mor […]

What was the point of voting in person in 2020??

I keep thinking we have heard the last of the dumb ideas that TFG had to steal the 2020 election. First it was flooding the courts with nuisance lawsuits about election count shenanigans. (They never happened). Then it was pressuring state officials in Michigan and Georgia to find the right number of votes for him. (They resisted). Then it was invade the Capitol during the electoral college vote count. (It didn’t work).

This next one is the stupidest.

They had a plan to have the secretary of defense seize the voting machines. Yes, that’s right. The Secretary of Defense was supposed to seize the voting machines that TFG’s own voters had used to cast their ballots.

According to NPR, The January 6 Committee has found evidence that there was a plan to sieze the supposedly compromised Dominion voting machines in battleground states because they couldn’t be trusted:

<blockquote>”The order, complete with a dotted line ready for Trump’s signature, would have directed the secretary of defense to “seize, collect, retain and analyze all machines, equipment, electronically stored information, and material records required for retention” under a law that relates to preserving election records.

The draft order provided seven days for the secretary of defense to issue an initial assessment, and 60 days for a final assessment, to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. It then ordered that the assessment and supporting information be disseminated throughout the executive branch.” </blockquote>

Who the hell was running this farce?

Biden voters overwhelmingly used mail in ballots to cast their votes. It was the hapless TFG voter who took orders from their fearless leader who claimed that red blooded Americans voted in person.

So, by seizing the voting machines, thereby throwing the integrity of the vote in person votes into question, TFG would have made his “win” the least believable election in US history. He would have had most of his votes in his teeny tiny hands and then what? Declare them all invalid thus ensuring a Biden win from all the paper mail in ballots??

This has to be the single most important reason for not re-electing TFG. He and his shadow cabinet of wild eyed conspiracy theorists were too stupid to work through this thought experiment that would have wiped out his own supposed victory. All those valiant patriots who voted for him would have participated in a super spreader event for nothing.

Smooth move, Dahnald.
