There are fifty-nine days until election day, keep it cool and we will get through this.
This week, among a slew of despicable and nefarious statements that the orange menace made, one thing stands out. He is encouraging his voters to vote twice, to vote by mail, and then to vote in person.
Voting twice is illegal, it is a crime. Encouraging people to violate election laws is also a crime. There should be consequences, but there won’t be.
Be mindful of what the tyrant is trying to do, he wants to create the maximum amount of chaos on election day as possible, he wants that chaos to extend into the entire counting process, which could take days, and even weeks. He wants to sew as much confusion as possible, cast as much doubt on the vote count as possible, because he believes this will give him an opportunity to hang on to power.
Pay attention to this, and don’t let it fool you.
Prepare yourself and everyone you talk to for the inevitable, there will not be a clear winner of the election on election day. Trump will try to claim victory but his rationale for it will be hollow.
Research the election laws in your own state so that you are not surprised by the process.
Ensure that those responsible for managing your election and tallying the vote do so within the dictates of the law.
Be patient, its going to get ugly.
Prepare to organize, remember the 2000 recount in Florida. Republicans bussed in hundreds of angry white men to occupy the facilitates where the votes were being examined. They succeeded in shutting down the count.
We can’t let that happen.
We have to be prepared to respond.
