America’s Biggest Loser, Donald Trump, continues to whine about his personal misfortunes. He is the most pitiful, weakest excuse for a “leader” the Republican Party has ever produced. How anyone can regard this sniveling crybaby as having strength is a mystery.
Not only is Trump the first president in history to be impeached twice, his single term in office resulted in Democrats winning the House, the Senate, and the presidency. He is the first president in decades to leave office with fewer people employed than when he started. He exploded the national debt by cutting taxes for corporations and the wealthy. He advanced the nuclear aspirations of both Iran and North Korea. He incited deadly riots in Washington, D.C., by insurrectionist mobs. And he presided over the loss of more than 600,000 American lives due to his negligent and incompetent mismanagement of the COVID pandemic. And now Trump has a warning for his Republican confederates:
“Republicans must take seriously the effort by Democrats to completely change America through the Reconciliation Process. Democrats are now suggesting that budget reconciliation can be used to pass Mail-In Ballot legislation as well as trying to include Amnesty in their infrastructure package.” […]
“Any effort to dictate national Mail-In Voting will be a disaster for our Country and for conservatism. There will never be a Republican elected to high office again. I urge every Republican to fight this and deny Democrats a quorum if that is what it takes to make sure that the Democrats can’t use reconciliation. Republicans must push back for the sake of our Country and, far less importantly, the sake of the Republican Party!”
Trump’s warning reeks of the impotence of a failed wannabe tyrant who is waddling down dark alleyways fantasizing about returning to his imaginary throne. But even worse, it’s a warning that most Americans would view with delight. The prospect that “There will never be a Republican elected to high office again,” is more of a reward than a threat.
The MIT Election Data and Science Lab conducted a study on recent elections and the impact of mail-in voting. They found that “The percentage of voters casting ballots by mail grew to 46 percent, more than doubling the fraction from 2016.” So mail-in voting is not only popular, but it’s popularity is growing exponentially.
What’s more, citizens who voted by mail in 2020 indicated that they are anxious to continue doing so. A staggering 88% of Democrats said that they are “very” or “somewhat” likely to vote by mail again. And 68% of Republicans said the same thing.
So Trump is pleading for the GOP to fight the most popular form of voting that contributed to the highest voter turnout in 120 years. That should go over well with voters of all stripes. The truth that every American can plainly see is that Trump and the GOP are scared witless of higher voter turnout. They have always aimed at placing obstacles to voting because they know that the more people who vote, the more Democrats win.
The last thing that Republicans want is anything that actually resembles democracy. That explains why a recent poll revealed that the tiny but noisy Cult of Trump believes that the January 6th insurrectionists were “patriots” who were “defending freedom.” However, if they think that they can parlay that insanity into future electoral victories by suppressing the vote, they are likely to be sorely disappointed.
As for Trump, he is terrified and reduced to begging Republicans to help him build a virtual wall to stop the American people from voting. He’s so terrified that he’s expressing his fears of a voting populace out loud. And it isn’t the first time. In April he said pretty much the same thing on Fox News:
