I blame Bill Gates. My Windows machine just did some kind of massive update thingy, just as Florida infection numbers started rising. Some people think that's a coincidence, but I'm not that fucking stupid.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

You all should just trust the wealthy, corporate elites. They really do have your best interests in mind.

Given the large number of posts in which Brian, I and many other Ratzians have robustly attacked modern corporate, capitalist culture, I rather think your attempt at sarcasm was misplaced... :tea:

As I just suggested in another thread, our member from Yellowknife's capacity to create strawmen is huge.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

Guardian
In 2012, Democrats won 1.4m more votes than Republicans, yet Republicans maintained a 33-seat margin in the House. A 2019 USC study found that 59 million Americans now live under minority rule, where the party that receives the minority share of the vote in a state election controls the majority of seats in the subsequent state legislature. While both Democrats and Republicans gerrymander, Redmap changed the game.

The American system is so corrupt it has lost all relevance.

Rather difficult for outsiders to understand. If you moved 30 days before election, you are not going to vote. If you cast a provisional ballot, those are never counted. Other similar issues, lack of polling places etc. https://www.amazon.com/Deliver-Vote-Ele ... 433&sr=8-3

No, they will not issue national ID or use your SS number to let you vote. All elections are tied to a district and a single polling place.

Some democrats were reputed to have screwed over the Trump rally by faking a bunch of ticket-seekers.

But they would NEVER do that with mass mail-in ballots...

It's note a thing.Because there are records of every registered voter in every county. If you just moved there, you show up in person to register. If you have a social security number, you probably get to vote. You check YES under US citizen. If you aren't, you can be deported if you voted.

It sounds like your view, and the Republican view, are quite different. I suppose I should ignore their concerns, and just take your word that nothing could go wrong-er, with more mail-in fun.

Especially after the Dems have shown again and again how smart they are at running a vote...

Yeah, there was no proof that the Democrats are digging up dead grandparents to vote. It does not amount to anything compared to all the provisional votes dumped to the shredder by Republican poll workers.

I haven't heard that republican viewpoint expressed in this particular context. One of the ways described, was a story available at
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/20 ... ting-frau/

Another was summed up in another article...
Sorry liberals—while unicorns, monsters under your bed, and comb-overs that look good, do not exist–voter fraud does exist. Also true is the fact that the same folks who kept telling anyone who would listen that Russia rigged our elections and the Trump team helped, also swear to us that our elections are tamper-proof and cannot possibly be vulnerable to fraud. Not too hypocritical?
No need for a source there, because it is opinion.

But if Russia rigged the elections, how can you be so sure that mass mail-in voting won't mean more fraud?

Voter ID always made sense to me, in the same way that one would require ID to drive a car, own a gun or purchase real estate.

Washington Times is sort of National Enquirer upgraded to a pretend newspaper.
