any data to prove this? any data you can link that would back this up? 

“More than 560 people asked for their names to be removed from ballot petitions after they learned the Republican Party funded the $100,000 signature-gathering effort and failed to disclose the spending in violation of campaign finance laws.”

560 people smart that BotN, GJBC and you. It’s a miracle.

“Justice," in the mind of a Democrat, is defined as receiving their desired outcome.
 

Similarly, a fair election is defined by one they win, and "mainstream" is characterized solely by their positions and beliefs at any given moment.

We might be headed into dangerous times in America, when a major political party is essentially acting like the most spoiled of children, those who must get their way at all times at the threat of a violent tantrum.

F you dude.  I just can't even.  Don't you talk about what political party is acting childish. Your party has devolved into a far right authoritarian group who's main driving animus is not conservative but is simply anti-left, and who's agenda is so unpopular they can only hold onto 40 to 45% of the electorate by stoking fear of some strawman, bogeyman leftist socialism that's going to take all their guns and kill all their unborn babies. And because they can't hold power by actually governing or putting forth policies with majority appeal, they break long standing norms, change the rules during lame duck sessions, and work tirelessly and openly to disenfranchise citizens who would vote otherwise in order to retain power.  And the only reason they are in power in the first place is the Senate and the Electoral College are both undemocratic representative bodies that by their design allow Republicans to win despite losing the majority of the votes, with some gerrymandering thrown in at the State level to further increase how disproportionate the representation in our government is. 

And at the top, you have Trump working to weaponize the Department of Justice against his political enemies, trying to act like Putin (since when is a President's approval needed for the sale of a company like TikTok needed...sounds exactly like the plutocratic mess you have in Russia), and constantly lying to the American people for political and personal gain.  You're preferred candidate literally just openly stated that he's not willing to allow for a peaceful transition of power regardless of what the vote tallies say.  This is not OK.  This is not normal.  This is the lead up to an impending Constitutional crisis.  And you and your ilk are enabling it and have the gall to point the finger at Democrats for angrily pointing all this out, and you cry foul.  Just go F yourself, miserable cretin.

Guess I was right about the getting your desired outcome as the only fair way and childish behavior when you don’t

I’m curious how the Never Biden folks think any progressive policies at all will be implemented in the next 40 years if/when the Supreme Court is 6-3 to the far right.

That question has been asked literally thousands of times in the past 6 months or so and still has yet to be answered except with Biden is the same as trump.

seems irrelevant since trump is gonna get his rbg replacement before the election and even if he loses, which i find less likely than a clear EC win, he's probably gonna steal the election anyway. the better question is what will the "just vote" white libs do when voting doesn't end the oppression? spend another 4 years biding their time and looking the other way? or will they work outside of the electoral system? i think i know the answer but would love to be proven wrong.

@AggieLean poo all you want but a clear explanation of how any progressive program or even moderate program are going to pass the Republican SC litmus test would be a welcome surprise.
