Trump: GOP should fight mail-in voting because it 'doesn't work out well for Republicans'

Source: POLITICO




In-person voting has been complicated by the coronavirus’ spread across the country.


Updated: 04/08/2020 10:48 AM EDT



President Donald Trump on Wednesday directed Republicans to “fight very hard” against efforts to expand mail-in voting amid the coronavirus pandemic, suggesting that such a shift in ballot-casting practices would yield unfavorable electoral results for the GOP.

“Republicans should fight very hard when it comes to statewide mail-in voting. Democrats are clamoring for it,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Tremendous potential for voter fraud, and for whatever reason, doesn’t work out well for Republicans.”


The president’s social media post comes amid escalating anxiety among national Democrats, election officials and voting rights activists regarding the coronavirus’ effects on upcoming state primaries and November’s general election.

In-person voting has been complicated by the deadly outbreak, with Americans suddenly endangered at polling places by the rapid spread of a highly infectious disease, and forced to defy federal guidelines and local stay-at-home orders in order to cast ballots.........................

Reporter: "How do you reconcile with that?"

Trump: "Because I'm allowed to."

14. But his cult will nod their heads....

and say, "that's right, gumdammit"!

There is no cure for stupid, but if Donald Trump owned stock in a company that said it had one, he'd recommend it as a cure for Corona-virus. Guaranteed.

5. What is good for Trump, (he voted by mail) is not good for everyone. This proves how he thinks.

It is all about his selfishness. That is it!

7. Every registered voter being able to simply cast a ballot is the GOP's worst fucking nightmare

They work hard to suppress votes for a reason.

8. As per usual, Republicans losing is attributed to non-existent "voter fraud."

It can't EVER be because the pandering goobers and their self-serving policies aren't popular. Perish the thought.

So rather than prove they can win in a straight-up election, Republicans will rig the game by claiming Democrats rig the game.

12. We need to get in front of this false narrative and disspel the "fraud" talking point

Last edited Wed Apr 8, 2020, 11:40 PM - Edit history (1)

It's not only safe from fraud (signature verification is enforced here in Oregon), but there are other benefits:

-Cheaper
-Doesn't disrupt business by having to take time off work
-Not subject to weather problems like snowstorms or hurricanes, or even rain
-Hygienic (no touching the same screen 1000's of other people just touched)
-No long lines (I know that's a "Feature", not a flaw in non-Democratic controlled or "purple" regions )
-No voter intimidation (see ya later, TrumpHumpers)
-Registration can be done by mail or automatically when you renew your state ID/car registration/driver's license

And another thing! You can take your time and read up in advance on all the ballot initiatives in the comfort of your own home, instead of having to create sample to take with you when voting in person.

9. A quote from Bertolt Brecht I like

“Some party hack decreed that the people
had lost the government's confidence
and could only regain it with redoubled effort.
If that is the case, would it not be be simpler,
If the government simply dissolved the people
And elected another?”

He was expressing cynicism about the GDR, but this applies to any corrupt authoritarian government

10. Question for next Five o'clock Follies

“Mr. Trump, many people are saying you’re a crook who needs to die in prison for your crimes against humanity. Other people say you should face a firing squad. Which one do you think is more accurate?”

18. Voter suppression and electoral fraud need to be capital offenses

And spelled out explictly as such in the Constitution, and mandate life imprisonment at the very, very least as punishment. And state that anyone who refuses to uphold the law will be held under the law as equally guilty and eligible to be punished the same.
