The argument that the only way to really beat Trump and get him, literally, out of the White House requires an overwhelming victory for Biden is in direct contradiction to what we know about Trump.
Because Trump would never ever claim that his indisputable loss was due to rigged voting? Just like he would never ever claim that his narrow loss was due to rigged voting?
We are in a disputed election right now.
There are 200 lawsuits going on in states right now, challenging various processes and procedures that are used to acquire and count votes. So there are 200 potential disputes waiting to be called on in order to question any vote tally.
Even if Russia fails to use Malware to infect a few voter machines, we should be concerned. When you have a system of government that used to rely, apparently, on amazing amounts of good faith, the erasure of that good faith by Donald Trump makes a real and actual change.
What many people seem not to grasp is how easy it is, in reality, to undermine a 'good-faith based' system. If one voting machine in Florida is found and proven to have malfunctioned, what's to say that not every single voting machine made by that company has not also been compromised?
And Trump is priming everyone, gaslighting at full speed.
"Make sure because the only way we're going to lose this election is if the election is rigged,” Trump told the group of supporters at the outdoor campaign event. “Remember that. It’s the only way we’re going to lose this election, so we have to be very careful.”
People should be afraid. Here is the actual choice: Trump wins re-election or Trump destroys the legitimacy of the election. That's it.
It would be great to end with the "Get out and Vote" mantra. I mean, sure, we should all do that, but we need a plan B. Unfortunately, this requires one of these enablers to course correct:
The Congressional Republicans
Attorney General Bill Barr
