May God Protect America from the Republican Menace.

Two-and-a-half hours after polls closed in every state in the 2020 election, then-President Donald Trump declared victory and said he was going to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to stop states from counting any more legally cast ballots.

“We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at four in the morning and add them to the list,” Trump said before adding, “Frankly, we did win the election.”

Data about a surge in early voting bodes well for Democrats. There have been strong efforts to suppress early and mail-in voting in a number of states, most notably Georgia, but nothing gets people riled up more than telling them they “can’t” do something. There seems to have been a successful effort to navigate the efforts to suppress voting. At least that’s what the early numbers show.

The larger the turnout, the less likelihood there will be for the Republicans to make the gains the pundits have already predicted. Because I am persuaded by Moore’s arguments I believe doom and gloom should not be the Democrats’ situation. If they get out (and encourage their friends and relatives to vote) they will win. And in so doing, they will save the country from fascism.

All Things Considered

“Moore’s third installment declared that “the Haters, the Bigots and the Supremacists always lose in the end.” He wrote that “the reason we’re going to win in November is because the other side is a bunch of losers. Big losers. Bad losers. Sore losers.”

He noted that the Republicans have lost the popular vote in seven of the last eight elections: “Only because of the slave states’ demand for the Electoral College—and the Republicans’ #1 job of gerrymandering and voter suppression—do we even have to still deal with their misogyny, their destruction of Planet Earth, their love of guns and greed, and their laser-focused mission to bury our Democracy.”

But Moore wrote that this year Democrats can overcome these factors because the Republicans “made a mistake” by pushing too far, including on Jan. 6, 2021. And when it comes to pushing too far, Moore wrote in his fourth installment that the Republicans are helping the Democrats win in November “by running the biggest batch of nutters in American electoral history”.”

The pundits are wrong about the mid-term elections
