We need Biden and Harris | Tom Camfield

I know, I know — “November 3.”

Because of the usual “lame duck” period, our current president will remain in office at least until Jan. 20. I use the Nov. 3 reference because most people are thinking in terms of casting their vote, and that’s where our thinking should be right now. Votes can already be cast in some states, and it’s not yet even October as I write this. Believe you me, Donald will be pumping out dubious coronavirus vaccine claims during the month ahead.

I’m definitely looking for Donald to lose “bigly” on Nov. 3 — but not to accept being the “loser” he has proven himself to be to the American public. We have a president who won’t wear a mask in pursuing his support by the ignorant, yet already has overseen the death of (officially) more than 200,000 Americans (and is negatively affecting the lives of millions of others). We have 4 percent of the world’s population and 21 percent of the coronavirus deaths.

It’ll be a couple of months yet in the best of electoral situations, and that would still include lame-duck spite like we’ve never seen before — executive orders, pardons, legal maneuvering, you name it.

Meanwhile what other dirty tricks, like hobbling our postal service prior to election day, can we expect from a president with little interest in keeping us alive?

For another five or six weeks until Election Day, Donald Trump will stand before a microphone at every opportunity and lie, lie, lie. This will include the many days during which ballots may be dispatched early due to coronavirus protections (which Trump opposes) or drop-boxing (which Trump opposes) or any red-state regulation that keeps legal voters (Black, Muslim, Latino, poor, elderly, or for any other reason likely to vote Democrat) separated from their ballots.

The truth is that he is a lying, self-serving cheat. And it’s long been obvious that he counts on the American public to be ignorant, greedy, racist and/or inattentive enough to keep him in a position of power. One of his ridiculous bits of action lately is rightly labeled “medical sham.” https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/trumps-health-care-sham-154334003.html
Meanwhile, Trump provided Joe Biden’s campaign team with the perfect fodder when the incumbent declared with apparent sarcasm: “If I lose to him, I don’t know what I’m gonna do. I will never speak to you again. You’ll never see me again.” Team Biden quickly put together a video clip of the moment and the Democratic nominee provided the kicker: “I’m Joe Biden and I approve this message.”

As the weekend saw the country — that’s right, the U.S. alone — moving into its (official) seven-millionth case of coronavirus (about which we are hearing precious little from the Oval Office), Donald instead had gone on record with a racial diatribe against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-battleground state Minn.). “This is not HER country,” he said, mocking her birthplace. Ah, but it IS! And that’s just part of the reason we don’t want to keep him empowered where he is today.

Rep. Omar fled civil war in her native Somalia when she was 8 years old. She became a naturalized citizen some 20 years ago — and this became HER country. She was subsequently duly elected to Congress. No fraud involved in the voting.

“She’s telling us how to run our country,” Trump said of Omar at a rally in election-battleground state of Pennsylvania. “How did you do where you came from? How is your country doing?” Omar tweeted in response: “Firstly, this is my country & I am a member of the House that impeached you. Secondly, I fled civil war when I was 8. An 8-year-old doesn’t run a country even though you run our country like one.”

Donald attempts to justify racism among his faithful followers. You’ll notice that he also preaches masklessness — standing bare-faced but well away from everyone, including the stricken governors of Missouri and Virginia. “Barefaced” and “Lie” are often used in conjunction in a derogatory way — and they take on special expanded meaning when Donald Trump talks, bare-faced, about the coronavirus.

We Americans of various vintage have been voting for some 228 years now, and Donald is trying to convince us all that if he loses in the near future it will have to be fraudulent.

The Washington Post reports President Trump has complained that Jews "are only in it for themselves" and stick together, prioritizing an ethnic allegiance over other loyalties. Ruth Ginsburg, who died on the eve of Rosh Hashanah after 27 years as a Superior Court justice, was Jewish.

I thoroughly expect this Nov.'s vote to be a total mess, when Millions of unsolicited ballots are sent out it's inevitable. We need to get rid of mail-in ballots. If there is no faith in our voting process this Democracy is finished. In 2019 Los Angeles was sued by Judicial Watch for having millions of ineligible voters on their voter rolls. That's just one city, and you can bet it's not the only one. (https://americansecuritytoday.com/lawsuit-spurs-ca-to-begin-massive-1-5m-inactive-voter-roll-cleanup/), even in my Family we will probably be receiving a ballot for a deceased person, of course we will destroy it but how many would not, and send in a fraudulent vote?

With a total lack of evidence of fraudulent voting, past or present, Republicans have decided to create a future in which their kind is pure

and Democrats must have their innate evil kept in check. Actually, I expect to see the GOP put together some sort of malfeasance they can blame on Democrats. Something that will appear to give credence to Donald’s blathering and too close to election day f0r anyone to uncover the phoniness it is. That’s the GOP way. VOTE EARLY. Forget Donald’s convenient little distraction with coronavirus and ask him more about his non-existent tax payments.

"With a total lack of evidence of fraudulent voting, past or present" ..... How can any reasonable person say such a thing? Has your hatred for the President become so strong that it overpowers common sense?, it appears so. Numerous times I've mentioned the commission that President Trump set-up in 2017 to look into the integrity of the electoral process which was forced to end because many states, mostly Democrat, refused to comply and filed lawsuits against the commission, as did our own AG.

Did you even bother to read that story about the Los Angeles voter registration rolls? 1.5 million ineligible voters, and how many of those voting in the 2016 election were illegal? You want to believe none? Have you already forgot the fiasco in Florida where it took the court to decide whether a "chad" was either hanging or dimpled? You tell me how that accurately decided what the voter's intent was.

Here is another story about voter fraud in Texas,

Here's another,

And another,

And yet another,

(https://www.newsobserver.com/news/politics-government/article245451185.html)

Only someone with Trump-Hate blinders on would say that voter fraud doesn't exist.

Whether Trump or Biden wins the election I do not have faith in our mail-in vote system.

Trump is wrong about so many things, and now he and others who think they are not vulnerable are paying the price.

Mask Up American and practice social distancing, it could mean your life. Should of been coming from the Republicans six months ago.

Folks are praying about President Trump's condition. I am sure there are good people on both sides.

He is the epitome of egocentric stupidity. I am praying that our society is smart enough not to elect him for another four years—if he remains alive for a few more weeks.

The average anti-Trump voter is motivated purely by hatred, not smarts. They have been brainwashed by the MSM, they believe what the MSM feeds them, and are too lazy to do any research for themselves. Your claim that "With a total lack of evidence of fraudulent voting, past or present" proves my point. Trump warns about fraudulent votes and he is right, and you are wrong, and when I cite evidence of fraudulent voting you ignore it. So much for smarts.

"unmasked",

I don't hate Democrats, some of my best friends are Democrats, I voted for Obama twice. The only mention I made of Democrats in this thread is "President Trump set-up in 2017 to look into the integrity of the electoral process which was forced to end because many states, mostly Democrat, refused to comply and filed lawsuits against the commission, as did our own AG.", that's just a statement of fact, nothing even close to "hate".
