What is happening today does not bode well for the future

Even if Trump and his minions back off on his push to delegitimize the election, the GOP, like one who experiments and gains knowledge, may learn strategies from this and will probably try this again at a later time-and it could have a more serious outcome.

Please tell me I'm wrong.

19. I doubt it. They probably kept the Senate and gained in the House.

And the only red state that apparently flipped was Arizona and that's not official yet. The Repugs are far from dead.

4. This is why they must ALL be prosecuted & punished to max allowed

No question about it!

And assets seized from them ALL for raping our tax $.

Absolute must!

Make examples of what Lady Justice does to traitors.

13. Prosecution is good, but not enough. It will frighten some off next time, but not all

The real snakes will learn the opposite lesson if they ever get power again. They will learn not to give up power at all.

7. Trumpism and Rightwing GOPism are like scabies

Stay far away and disinfect everything this infestation touches.
You can't beat it but at least you can make it a non-issue.

As for the Q's... it's better to just burn the linen.

10. You are not wrong and I have been saying it for years. Trump found the weakenesses

in our system. That's what his winning the Republican primary meant. From that point on until today, it's all been about finding and exploiting those weaknesses. Even if he fails, we need to solve the systemic problems that he showed us, or they will be used again. Even if he loses today, he could win in 2024, or someone worse could win too.

11. Never forget that they are informed by Russian tactics.

We have known the Russians are incompetent since the 70s.

12. We need to regulate poll watching.

They did this in Florida in 2000 where they essentially threatened physical violence against the people counting ballots.

Earlier today I read a post where in Michigan, republican poll watches challenged every ballot. There need to be rules. And people behaving that way need to be removed.

14. Can you imagine if trump were articulate, good looking & charming

but just as narcissistic, cruel, corrupt and incompetent? We'd truly be up shit's creek right now. Look at how easily all of our institutions fail and/or bend to his will!!

16. The 30%ers...

I read somewhere that there will always be the thirty percenters but this has turned into the forty to fifty percenters, closet racists, Q Anon nut jobs, Boo Galoo, Proud Boys, Nazis, Nationalists, etc. We need to fix that shit first and move on! Hey! Those racist statues came down pretty quick? How many years would that have taken I wonder. My bottom-line is, we don't know where the silver linings come from, but when things are righteous they ring true when manifested like the magic that worked in Georgia and Arizona this cycle. Or, was that the spirit of John McCain and John Lewis making their presence known?

17. This was the logical end stage of decades of talk radio eliminationist

agitprop. The GOP stopped believing that a Democratic president could be legitimate back in the 90's.

18. You are absolutely right. They have come this-close to

stealing this election despite historic turnout. With a little tweaking turnout will no longer mean they automatically lose. Between gerrymandering and suppression that diminished impact in states like GA, we’re in a state of emergency. Fixing this should be the only problem Biden addresses.
