It could be raining pussy, and troops will complain and blame leadership for not providing an equal ration of ass.

Trumpocalypse

Those polls have been about as reliable as the credit rating agencies, I figure he'll do a second term. Biden being weak doesn't help much, Democratic party seems clueless.

I actually support term limits. But you can't really accuse somebody of authoritarianism by getting continuously openly elected.

Maybe you should try posting something that isn't an utter load of shit?

I mean, I click on anyone's links up until the point that they repeatedly show themselves to only post drivel. I am afraid your horse and well and truly bolted on that count. Nobody to blame but yourself.

If one controls the narrative, I abso-fucking-lutly can. Or are you here to tell us that Stalin, Hitler, FDR and Mao were just nice guys who everyone loved?

Deathly fucking silence....


To register to vote in the US you typically have to get some form of ID and then the DMV or whatever group gives out the ID has a checked box if you want to register to vote or not.

You can request it by mail as well.

You can go to a US embassy and they will help you register to vote. Or you can call a US embassy (never done this but I know people who have)

Being on Jury Duty can get you registered to vote and vice versa.

The most common form of voter fraud in the US is registering in two places at once and casting a ballot in those two places. There were like 10 who did it in 2016.

The whole voter fraud thing that Trump is claiming is bullshit. He is just doing it so when he loses enough dipshits will think he has a point because they "heard it somewhere" that fraud was rampant.

In Democratic controlled cities, especially Philadelphia and Chicago back in the day, that was when you would actually have dead people vote, but most corpse voting was for the really powerful Alderman elections. They stayed out of the Federal stuff because they could have have outsiders investigate their corruption.

Philly had "Street Money" which was an envelope filled with small bills with the Candidates name on it. This again was for local elections which were much more lucrative than national elections.

Somehow Trump will manage to Shithole the USA even further before he is out of office.

Hoorah a smart answer!

So as I suspected voting fraud on a scale big enough to swing a federal election is almost impossible and would in any case be detected.

Most illegal voting fraud in 2016 for the Presidential election was for Trump...but it was very small. Like less than 10 people caught.

Most voter tampering in 2020 was for Trump, like the Postie in West Virginia that changed voter registration "for a prank" (he was arrested).

Most voter fraud in large US cities is done by Democratic party machines. There is a decent chance that the Chicago Mob handed JFK the election in 1960 but no concrete proof other than the hearsay of criminals who are now dead.

Those same criminals may have influenced Illinois results in 1968 after Nixon got chummy with the Teamsters, but that would not have swayed the election at all. Even if Humphrey would have carried Illinois he still would have lost.

George Wallace probably did more damage to Humphrey than the voter fraud in Illinois ever did.

There is precedent for the "voter fraud" claims you will hear about during the next 90 days or so, but except for JFK vs Nixon in 1960 (if that is even true) it has been minor on a national level.
