1. Our lickspittle governor and legislature would do whatever he asked

But no one cares about our measly EC votes.

hahahahaha

But Oklahoma would delay or cancel the election at his request, even if it is illegal. They don't fucking care.

5. I do not think that they would.

Not in the case of an election.

If a state doesnít hold an election, that state has no say in the selection of the next President and loses ALL of its representatives in the House. No Governor is going to do that to their state.

This is all a distraction from todayís economic news. The Trump depression is upon us, and itís going to clobber us.

3. None.

Imagine that you are the Governor of TX. Your party leader, the lunatic in the White House, has told you that you should not hold an election. He has no power to stop you from holding an election, but, for whatever reason, thatís clearly what he wants. For your part, you know that your state will have NO SAY in selecting the next President if you donít hold an election. Even worse, your state will have NO MEMBERS in the House of Representatives if you donít hold an election. Youíll also lose one Senate seat. What will you do? You will hold an election, no matter what the lunatic in the White House says.

The idea that there will be no November 2020 election is absurd. The election will happen. Nobody has the power to stop it. Our Constitution actually works fairly well.

12. You are totally correct, "The election will happen. Nobody has the power to stop it."

..Trump can suggest anything. He cannot stop an election. No one person can do that.

4. So let the red states ignore the election and not vote!

Meanwhile, blue states will be voting and awarding EC votes.

6. Precisely.

Not to mention the fact that States that donít hold elections will have no members in the House of Representatives. The idea that there wonít be an election is absurd.

10. It's just a distraction; I think.

Todayís economic numbers say that we have just entered the Trump depression, and this depression is going to pummel us. Our economy is OFFICIALLY in an unprecedented nosedive.

8. The date of the Presidential election is set in Federal Law.

States cannot change Federal Law, and the Congress will not change it, since the House of Representatives is controlled by Democrats.

There is nothing the President or any State can do to change the date of the Presidential Election.

Can we please stop chattering about this. It is a complete waste of time. The date is set by Federal Law. Any change would require Congressional action, which is not going to occur.

Thank you!

11. It would require a Constitutional amendment.

Agree with your basic point. Itís not going to happen, and itís not worth discussing.

This is a distraction from todayís colossally-bad economic news. We have officially entered the Trump depression, and this one is unprecedented. Itís going to pummel us.
