Notice the language the Republicans use, "to get your voting privilege." Voting is not a privilege. It is the solemn right of all US adult citizens to vote for their elected leaders. There is no privilege involved.

As part and parcel of his customary lies and incompetence Trump has shot himself in both feet, cut his nose off to spite his face, kicked himself up the bum, set his own house on fire, gone out into the sun without a helmet, worn his own suit of Emperor's new clothes, poisoned wells, dug a hole for himself and kept on digging, and now he's doing his best to queer his own pitch and finally to sign his own death warrant.

I hope that in November all of Trump's endeavours in this regard come to fruition, and that he is eventually escorted from office and the White House by armed guards, on his way to an infamous place in history and maybe, if we're really lucky, a jail cell.

Interesting article. The last couple of paragraphs are quite damning for Trump’s conspiracy theory.

Hopefully it will cost him dearly.

Florida is a must-win state for Trump 

It's a must-win state for Harris-Biden for sure.

If Biden were president now, he would be a puppet, while a bunch of behind the scenes grifters and criminals ran the government while waiting for him to die or resign. 

Guaranteed, if Biden wins, it would be Harris calling the shots and she would replace him within a year.

I was wondering when someone would turn up to spout some baseless off-topic nonsense

Is this the latest incarnation of ‘deep state’?

Except it's not baseless off-topic nonsense. You just don't understand the situation.

You really believe Biden would actually be or will be in charge of the Oval Office, don't you?

As far as this universal mail voting, who really thinks it won't result in a delayed and contested election and chaos in Nov.?

So prove it

So prove it

"Unlike the African-American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things." - Joe Biden a few days ago

Still think he's going to be allowed to make decisions?

Trump's failed presidency is dragging down the rest of the Republican ticket. In the last three months, the Senate has gone from probably staying Republican, to probably going to the Democrats, thanks to the failed leadership of Trump. His obvious attempts to interfere with the US Postal Service are not making him look like a good leader.

As expected, no proof. Fairly abject effort really.

It is more like most of us being tired of right wing nut jobs spouting wild conspiracies as if they were fact based arguments. Has Mr. Biden been anyone's puppet in the past as a Senator or Vice President? No. Does talking to others, weighing different options and coming to a conclusion based on the inputs of your peers and subordinates make one a "puppet"? Only if you know nothing about good leadership.

Partly true, but Republican legislators in both houses have been afraid to challenge even the most outrageous statements and conduct of this President. To the degree they align themselves with the acts of the yellow crested rooster and refuse to act like responsible adults they own what happens in the coming election. They have nobody to blame but themselves for their predicament. So far only Mitt Romney seems willing to challenge the Pres, but there is some Mormon theological weirdness going on with that, the so-called White Horse Prophesy.

Ooooh hot goss! Do spill the beans!
