Republicans around the country are pushing for new laws that would make it significantly more difficult for many Americans to vote. They’re particularly targeting mail in voting and ballot drop boxes, both of which were used heavily by people who voted for Democrats in the last election.
This is no coincidence. It’s very clear that the Republicans are trying to make it more difficult for people to vote, especially those they fear will vote for Democrats. Historically, Republicans have often feared large voter turnouts in elections because they worry that it may favor the Democrats if more people come out and vote.
This is clear voter suppression. Republicans are trying to increase the odds that they might win future elections by making it more difficult for those who may vote for Democrats to cast their ballot. This is sick, disgusting, and goes against what democracy is supposed to be about. Frankly, it starts getting dangerously close to authoritarianism and clearly goes against what this country should stand for.
Everyone who cares about our freedoms and democracy should be furious and speak out against these horrendous laws that Republicans are pushing all around the country. Mail in voting has been shown over and over to be very effective and quite secure. The military has been using it for years. We should be encouraging people to exercise their constitutional right to vote and have a voice in American democracy.
People need to speak up and speak out against these outrageous new laws.
Let’s stand for democracy and the United States Constitution.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won the election fair and square. There were no widespread irregularities. Biden won, and Trump lost.
But Trump is continuing to undermine American democracy making outrageously false claims of fraud even though he has no evidence to back it up. His court challenges keep failing, again because he has no evidence. But Trump continues making bogus accusations, and what is more disturbing is how so many of his followers seem to believe him despite the fact he is clearly spreading lies and false information. It is additionally disturbing how most of the Republicans in Congress are still being extremely cowardly as they placate and go along with Trump’s dangerous farce. All of this enables and encourages Trump to continue his deplorable behavior.
What is also concerning is how it appears that Trump is not going to go into a calm retirement like other modern presidents. Nope. It looks more and more likely that Trump wants to continue running the Republican Party as much as he can get away with. He may try to control what elected Republicans do and how they vote by wielding the threat of turning his followers against them. This means someone who is not in an elected position would be maintaining a significant amount of control over what elected Republicans are doing and how they are voting.
Think about that folks.
This goes completely against our democratic values and sinks further towards the dark world of authoritarianism.
It is way past time for people (particularly Trump followers and elected Republicans) to open their minds and speak out against Trump’s abhorrent behavior. Stop blindly following him, placating him, and going along with him when he is clearly in the wrong. Get information from a variety of independent, reputable sources (not sites that just tell you what you want to hear). Stand for democracy and the United States Constitution.
It’s time to get back our Democracy!
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won the presidential election. That is very clear, yet Donald Trump has thus far refused to concede and is making baseless, destructive accusations of fraud.
All states are reporting that no significant irregularities occurred this election. International observers monitored the election as well and are also saying that no widespread irregularities happened. As a matter of fact, an international observer report has criticized Trump for making baseless claims against the election.
The United States is deeply divided to a scary, unhealthy degree with people, organizations, and political parties not trusting each other and often even hating one another. It’s hurting our nation. Donald Trump has exacerbated these divisions throughout his time in politics and the presidency.
It’s no surprise that Trump is making unfounded claims of fraud despite having no evidence for it. He has been sending clear signals for months that he would act like this if he lost. Thing is, Trump’s childish behavior making baseless attacks upon the election is hurting our democracy. Even when Trump is clearly lying, millions of Americans still choose to believe him. This means that even though there is overwhelming evidence that the election was fair, millions of Americans think the contrary.
This is dangerous and is really hurting our nation.
Elections and the peaceful transfer of power is part of the very foundation of the United States. It’s a major factor in making this nation great. But Donald Trump (along with the millions of Americans going along with his dangerous behavior) is undermining the entire process with false claims of fraud and in doing this is undermining the United States itself.
People need to open their minds.
Joe Biden won in a free, fair election, and Donald Trump lost. Time for people to accept this and move forward.
To be blunt, stop blindly following Donald Trump. Don’t blindly follow anyone. Look at the facts using varied, reliable, independent sources. Don’t use sites that only tell you what you want to hear.
There is no evidence of widespread irregularities. None.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won the election fairly.
Time for people to accept that and move forward.
We need to start working together so that we can begin the process of healing this nation.
