No silly, LeBeau was fighting the Nazi Germans. Winter and I will be in the reeducation Stalag for fighting the creation of a Marxist state. AOChe's minions might give you a job as a guard at the Stalag.

We really do need a national poll test with one question:

Have you ever voted for Donald Trump?

If the answer is "yes," you are not eligible to vote. Of course don't tell anybody that before they answer. We'd have a much better country if we could implement that.

If we could just do the screen once. Identify people who voted for Trump to the extent possible and make sure they can never vote again.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth

I've never voted for Trump, but you are part of the reason why this country is as divided as it is and apparently not going to unify anytime soon. Your absolutism is abominable and in clear opposition to what this country has always stood for. Why do you hate America?

There are times when absolutism is called for. If I said we should not support the NAZI Party you would have no problem with that. The Trump Cult is a problem for this country. I don't know why you would not be able to see that at this point. If there was ever any question it was answered in spades over this past month or so. Obviously I know we can't take away the right to vote. But people who would do something like vote for Trump are problem for this country.

The Trump Cult is a problem but it's less dangerous than the cult that thinks that socialism/Marxism will work this time. But your hatred for Trump blinds you to anything but him.

When I was growing up, my mom asked me if I ate my broccoli and I always said yes.

I also always wore clothing with pockets whenever mom happened to be serving broccoli for supper. :coffee:

Of course there are bad actors on both sides. I fully recognize that. Doesn’t mean that they are equal. I’ll ask again, define ctrl-left.
The ctrl-left includes but is not limited to AOChe and the Squat, AnTiFa, BLM (the Marxist organization, not the movement), Kate Brown, Sarah Iannarone.

Others are welcome to add to the "membership" ...

And you are correct, they're not all equal. I'm more concerned about the Manchurians in the ctrl-left than then buffoons in the alt-right.
They’re one in the same..

That revelation would tell me a few things:

1) Confirm what many suspect
2) Proof that there are good people in government and that even the powerful can't hide forever
3) Ability to drastically change our society to prevent a repeat.

The following years/decade(s) would be turbulent. It wouldn't be easy but in the long run, I think our country could come out stronger. :twocents:
The GA video is more than proof, everyone wants to put their head in the sand regarding it. And I have yet to see a legitimate argument substantiating the pushback on signature validation on the mail in ballots.
Doesn’t Georgia election law require that once both signatures are confirmed, the envelope is separated from the ballot? What’s another round of signature verification going to get you?

And agreed, the State Farm video still looks fishy but from what we’ve been told, there’s nothing there except maybe some bad decisions. I know we don’t Like to trust experts and officials when they don’t give us the resolution we desire but not everything is a conspiracy. Not everything is is done with Ill intent. Would those votes have tipped the election towards Trump? I don’t believe so.

No, we really don’t. For one - we shouldn’t be punishing people for voting. 2 - that’s just undemocratic. It’s more fascists than anything so what you really want is more fascism.

Congrats - you’re a fascist.


Besides - Trump Supporters do a good job at identifying themselves.

Telling everyone to leave because counting is being stopped, then allowing counting to continue after observers leave is not just a "bad decision." To actually believe that is just an awful take.
