Trump, Dems clash on boosting mail-in voting during pandemic

Source: Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) While Wisconsin struggles to hold its primary on Tuesday, President Donald Trump and Democrats are bickering over how to provide voters with safe and secure access to a ballot as the coronavirus pandemic rages in the U.S. and threatens to extend into the fall, affecting the general election.

With another economic rescue package in the works, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she wants money to give more voters the chance to cast their ballot by mail, an option that would allow people to vote without the concern over the safety of polling places.

But Trump opposes voting by mail and is leading Republicans in a battle to limit its use, arguing that it would encourage fraud and lead to so many people voting that his party could not win.

But the 2020 presidential election is creeping ever closer, and there are no signs yet of the pandemic abating, nor any word on when Americans on orders to stay home can resume normal life, so lawmakers are trying to figure out how to allow for voting in a world where face-to-face contact causes anxiety at the least and possibly sickness and death.

So, oppose vote by mail, which is widely adopted in many states, then postpone elections on the ground that it is unsafe to vote. I guess we understand the GOP game plan for 2020.

1. Pretty simple

Do anything to stay in power. Regardless of how many, people have to die.

2. Worried about fraud?



Worthless bastard wouldn't recognize fraud if it bit it in the face...

Suppose voting by mail would be harder for its russky buddies to manipulate the vote..

3. Of course Trump and the Republicans oppose anything that would make it easier for people to vote

because they know that if they can disenfranchise a lot of voters they will have a better chance of winning. This is one thing that really scares me. They will use this pandemic as an excuse to suppress as many votes as possible.

4. rump has nothing to do w/ how the states vote. States will have to explain to their voters...

why they didn't embrace vote by mail processes vs. in person, when people realize that they would be possibly putting their lives at risk, when they didn't have to, just to vote.

5. Right now Fat Donnie is running around the WH, super-gluing his stuff to the floor so they can't

throw him out after he loses the election. The last thing he'll probably do is to glue his fat ass to something solid -- maybe the toilet? The stuff he's not sticking down are the priceless antiques, gifts and mementos that he figures he can steal and sell on Ebay.

We already know that when he loses he'll claim the election was rigged. He's already saying he deserves an extra two years because of the investigations.

We need to contact the U.N. and get election observers here.

7. We vote by mail in Washington

Works great. One can actually research the candidates and measure on the ballot instead of getting blindsided in the voting booth.

8. Permanent theft of the goverment is their and PUtin's plan.

That's why drumpf is driving the catastrophe over the cliff, he wants it as bad as possible so there is rioting and he can declare martial law and stop the elections and they will never come back and allow us all to vote once they have stopped it. We will be the enemy and he wants to round us up and jail us - Barr has already submitted a draft law to congress to do exactly that. During a time of national "civil unrest" he wants unlimited power to arrest anyone for any reason and hold them indefinitely. Guess who he intends to arrest - Democrats.
