Whatever it takes – Donald Trump will do it to retain the Presidency

I don’t even know where to begin.

The economy is in taters thanks to the coronavirus and President Trump, who is trailing badly in polling of the race for the White House, suggested on Thursday that the Nov. 3 general election be delayed “until people can properly, securely and safely vote.”

This logic could mean we would not have an election for many months and possibly many years.

The president does not have the authority to move the date of a federal election. And Mr. Trump’s other claim on Thursday, that widespread mail-in voting would make the election “inaccurate and fraudulent,” is false.

The Democratic Party could lodge the same claims of “inaccurate and fraudulent” results if Joe Biden lost the election.

The nation has such a complicated patchwork of voting regulations, with some states allowing early and absentee voting; some permitting voting by mail or same-day voter registration; others requiring certain kinds of identification for voters; and many states doing few or none of those things.  Even before this year, five states — Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Utah and Washington — regularly conducted their elections almost entirely by mail and there have been few cases of fraud.

Donald Trump will do everything he can to remain in office for a second term.

There will be dirty tricks and Trump will use lies and fear to convince the public that Joe Biden will destroy America.

  1. We have been voting by mail here in oregon since 1998. Works quite well.

  2. Like Obama before him, Trump has learned about the art of the well-tossed hand grenade. And the crowd goes wild.
