Has anybody noticed what’s going on? There are gangs of armed, enraged goons roaming around many major cities. They have spent months hurting people and destroying buildings. What’s going to happen when there’s no result on Election Night? What’s going to happen when there’s endless bickering about lost ballots that will end up being litigated? Yes, we all know it can happen with in-person voting but with mail-in it’s guaranteed to happen. Can you imagine what the “protesters” will do if we leave them to stew in their brain excrement of suspicion and doubt? And again, yes, they will riot no matter what the election results are. But these are not people who can tolerate uncertainty. They will really blow if we burden their feeble psyches like this.
What can we possibly assume when we see that first the police gets weakened, then marauding crowds are sicced on the population, and then an experiment is conducted on a very large, very complicated country where people are expected to exercise a ton of patience and good faith? This feels like somebody is trying to provoke a civil war.
Also, the mail-in process is a total mess. My husband got a notification from the state that he can do mail-in voting, with instructions and everything. I got nothing. We registered at the exact same time and in the same place but I’m not mentioned anywhere on that consent form for mail-in.
The people who are suggesting mail-in voting are either completely oblivious and self-centered (“but it works in Europe!”) or malevolent. There’s no other explanation.
