Donald Trump Really Thinks He’s Just Gonna Steal An Election

Between this and Ted Cruz insisting the election must inevitable go to the SC, there is no argument the GOP expects to at least try to steal an election they know they can’t win.

I just don’t understand the endgame. Is the idea that a 6-3 Trump court will just automatically throw out millions of ballots to retain power? Why would we respect any decision handed down from any of Trump’s justices now that he has vocalized his expectations? Same goes for his (now) complicit congress. Trump just removed any shred of legitmacy to this election unless it is decided via ballot. I mean...I know that’s just crazy anyway but really. I dunno what else to say.

This isn’t 2000. This isn’t that court. This time the marches will reach inside every DC center of power that tries to deny us an election. We might indeed be slipping towards autocracy, but not this cycle.

Careful, GOPers. We get that ya’ll are good with Trump holding your party down and having his way with it but if you think our entire system now exists just to keep Ivanka in Chinese patents, ohhh dear lordy you are in for a surprise. Enjoy your new court. We’re taking our country back with or without you.

While I agree that the rhetoric we are hearing from the right is very worrisome. The left scares me as well... Hillary Clinton telling Biden “never concede under any circumstance”. AOC telling people to “be ready to rise up” Now the left pushing for mail in voting, while we have Report after report of mail in voting fraud. I thought that pushing for mail in voting was a mistake by the left. That only gives the right a reason not to respect the results!!! Let’s vote the way we always have, Thats way there is no excuses or saying it’s not legitimate!

Whether that human parasite concedes doesn't matter. He can sit in the White House entertaining his delusions and tweeting with his thumbs about black people right up until January 20, at which point he'll be escorted out onto Pennsylvania Avenue, at which point he can either call a cab or else simply wander into traffic like the senile old man that he is, for all I care.

The right doesn't respect the rules because they are all about gaining and keeping power, everything else is window dressing. If it wasn't mail in voting you'd be complaining about the millions of illegal immigrants stealing the popular vote from you like Trump did in the last election. Even when you win you complain about illegal votes that a presidential commission couldn't find with their junior detective kits and the full authority of the federal government.

lol. First off I’m not a republican... secondly, BOTH parties only care about gaining and keeping power. Anyone who doesn’t believe that is a fool and lives in an echo chamber!!

Whatever happened to the caravan? Last election, we were supposed to be afraid of Latinos.

I guess the sequel this election is to be afraid of black people.

It's all so tiring.

If I were ever an old white Trump supporter, scared of so many groups that I had never bothered to meet personally, just cowering in my home and making posts about the thugs and so forth, my quality of life wouldn't be worth staying alive anymore.

And luckily I'd have about two dozen guns to choose from when I came to the inevitable conclusion that I should blow my miserable brains out.

No. Only one party is in favor in disenfranchising voters to retain power. Only one party is in favor of abdicating Senatoral duties to deny a sitting President a Supreme Court nominee. The equivalency game is as tired as your inability to parse nuance and degree is amusing. Political nihilism is the goth eyeliner of political debate.

You still haven't figured out that both parties do the same?

Don't you find it curious that, during the entire 2016 election process, Trump never missed an opportunity to whine that it was rigged? After he miraculously 'won', we never heard another peep about alleged rigging. I imagine he was as shocked as everyone else, judging by the confusion on his face after Obama gave him the tour and explained that he actually had to answer to people in this job. He clearly ignored the good advice offered and continues to believe he is CEO who can do anything he likes with no consequences.

AOC, Nancy Pelosi, and Mitch McConnel, all the same huh? That's your brilliant political insight?

You don't think the DNC at large is just another power-hungry group interested in maintaining and expanding its own power whenever and wherever possible? You can argue individuals, but it's ludicrous to suggest that the DNC at large is anything but a slimy political power structure.

Your partisan has such a grip on ya
No Luther, I'd gladly throw the Nancy Pelosi's and Chuck Shumers, Jerry Nadlers, Debbie Wasserman Shultzs to the side and form an actual Progressive party but that isnt politically viable. That doesn't mean I have to take the simplistic and adolescent view that AOC and Pelosi and McConnel are all the same. They're just not and you can declare they are all you like but what you can't do is explain it in an intelligent and convincing manner.

Again, that's not what I'm reffering to

Example: If Obama had done what Trump did in NK Trumpers would be calling Obama an appeaser

If the Democrats could appoint a SC justice just like the Republicans right now they would be doing the same thing

Yep

You're missing his point. By the way did you notice all of those corrupt names you just listed have a lot of control over the DNC? The DNC isn't anything close to a progressive party. They'd be right wing in Europe. At large they're just another advocate group for corporate America.

Is it a Democrat who is saying "get rid of the ballots?" No, it is a Republican President, specifically Trump, who is saying that. Which is why he needs to be voted out of office.

What enrages me? Donald Trump is dumb af. He has no idea how our government works. Even a little. He is a parrot that repeats, badly, the words of other adults in a room. So when he babbled about "their" advantage in congress for a contested election, he's just repeating what their strategy sessions are about: to steal our votes.

I am not concerned its gonna work, mostly. Mostly. But he is a traitor piece of garbage, and every person that votes for this is a traitor to out country. Full stop.
