    Trump doesn't like the idea of voting by mail, because his Russian friends cannot hack papers remotely, just computers... those voting machines are full with security holes.

    If you're somewhere across the pond, can you do us Americans a favor and make sure people know that George Floyd was the spark to this but this is about much more than just that.This is the systematic oppression of all of us. Those of color, the elderly and disabled, and the poor (of all colors) are shit on. And year after year, because of the constant transfer of wealth to the top, our government has made about 70-80% of the populace poor or just above that line. We are denied the right to a living wage, healthcare, unionized and democratic workplaces, etc. And the fruits of all our labors give the government and the wealthy more power and control. They actually argued that the ultra-wealthy billionaires DESERVE all that money as if they work 16000 times harder than we do. (calculating $1 billion divided by $60,000 per year salary although many, many families make less than $60k/yr) And our media has propagandized us so completely for decades that we actually believe that we don't deserve to live a decent life and that our health and well-being aren't valuable. And here in the middle of a pandemic and the Great Depression 2.0, certain wealthy "experts" actually said on the news that we citizens should be proud to sacrifice our lives to the almighty dollar, to the economy! The wealthy corporations have the government as a safety net so when they're doing well, they win but when they fail, they still win (since the govt bails them out). They just did the largest corporate bailout (over 4.5 trillion dollars) to Wall Street, banks, and corporations in America's history but tell us that they can't afford healthcare and a living wage. We are the reason this country exists and yet we are only the cogs in the giant capitalist machine that makes the money-maker go *burrrrrrrrrrrrrr* for the wealthy. Put simply, we are treated as indentured servants and our needs and happiness do not matter here. I believe all this madness is the beginning of the collapse of the American empire. This is going to be tragic and painful for all of us. But to me the silver lining is that hopefully we won't be acting like the world's bully anymore but I do not believe that we will affect the government and our lives will not get better. Ultimately, if the protests don't die down on their own, they will send the military in to quash it.

I DO worry about areas where USPS service struggles so thanks for speaking to that John. 👍🏼

  43. Steve Buller

    Steve BullerPred 57 minutami

    Are we talking about voting online at all? A lot of people already file their taxes and do all kinds of sensitive information online... This would drastically decrease the demand for mail-in ballots, and we wouldn't have to print more funny money to fund an outdated system. I know some people don't have internet access, so they could still request absentee ballots. Is this under discussion?

    Vote by mail, don't vote by mail...whatever the electoral collage makes the whole thing pointless anyway. Nobody has ever been able to actually adequately explain how the electoral collage is more fair then a direct count. to me if you have 300 million people and 160 million of them or more vote for a given candidate. that should be the winner. "every vote counts" -a complete liar....guess that's why the overseas mail in ballots that aren't counted often times until 10 days after the election is over...because it's so important. the fact that it very often isn't the person who received the most votes, undermines the whole thing completely and the fact that a good portion of votes aren't even counted until after the winner is announced...How many times have you seen "won the popular vote" for a losing candidate? your vote doesn't mean anything it's a good way to keep you in line by making you think you have a say in what this country does. to paraphrase george carlin 'the whole thing is meaningless. but you go ahead and have your little election, i'll be at home masturbating too. the difference is when i'm finished i'm going to have a little something to show for it.'

    Juci ShockwavePred uro

    If Trump put that amount of effort, hard work and dedication on assisting the people with this crazy shit at hand (resolving issues of the economy, health care system, the education system and especially with the outdated infrastructure system itself), Trump wouldn't need to worry about elections. He would automatically win by default through acting like a real leader who cares and loves his people. The past was shit, but there were a few good things we could learn, such as how Viking rulers shared their wealth with their followers. You are only as rich as the people who follow you. I don't know... I have a different mentality on things. Even if I made billions, knowing someone on Earth goes to bed hungry, it would still make me feel so poor. :( Again, I am only as rich as the people around me.

    Voting by mail will benefit democrats for the simple fact that a vast majority of the blue collar americans tend to be democratic and tends not to vote because they work 2-3 jobs and have no time. Making voting more easier will allow these individuals to vote, resulting in a blue wave. Something Republican are scared of

    Another question: why are prisoners not allowed to vote and when they are out of the prison the right to vote is not automatically restored? I have heard that you have to apply for it and go to some sort of court and talk BS. Really? Your constitution gives you the right to vote. Where does it say the things mentioned above?

    I voted in Idaho by mail during the May primaries, and not only was it a pretty painless process to request mail-in ballots for the entire year during the single online request, the envelope also included an "I Voted" sticker! Also, I'm constantly amazed by how so many people who should know better continue to flout how quickly and easily things can get done. Preparing for things (like a huge uptick in votes by mail or taking care of people during a pandemic or eliminating racial discrimination) takes considerable time and a not insignificant amount of effort and planning to execute...
