You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive

Could the Congress pass legislation making election fraud subject to harsh penalty if convicted?

Perhaps a five to ten-year sentence?

That might discourage those that feel inclined to carry out criminal actions for Donald J Trump?

The Real Nightmare Scenario

Four more years of Donald Trump.

It is inconceivable that the people would choose four more years of hell and despair. But we can never under-estimate the power of propaganda and the Big Lie.

The people will not accept another election with Donald Trump hugging and kissing Vladimir Putin, begging for help to steal the next election. That will not be accepted.

Donald Trump has said that the next election will be "fixed" and "rigged". If he has anything to do with it, it will be.

I cannot believe, that in an honest election, the people would choose four more years of division and destruction.

That would be a real nightmare.

A Song For You

What is Trump's strategy for stealing the election in November?

You just know he spends most of his waking moments thinking about how he can scam and steal the election so he can stay in power and continue to dismantle America's democracy.

It now appears that he plans on using the USPS to disrupt and cast doubt on who voted and who didn't? The new Postmaster General seems to be on a practice run right now, three months away from the election?

It is scary also, because traditionally, Republicans have almost always out-voted Democrats in absentee ballots. Republicans are very comfortable with mail-in voting. The challenge for Democrats is to educate voters about the mail-in ballot before November 3rd. Many forget to sign their ballot. Automatic disqualifier.

If it can be manipulated or stolen, Trump will not hesitate to do it.

Eternal vigilance is required with this criminal.

John Prine - When I Get To Heaven

If the Democrats regain the Presidency...

...and if they take both the House and Senate, should they repeal the "filibuster rule"?

I say "if" because I do not have the certainty that some might have.

But, in my opinion, it they do regain the power, I think they should repeal the "filibuster rule", at least temporarily.

Because, even with the minority, the Republicans will attempt to block everything the Democrats need to do to get the country back on the right track. They will obstruct everything, just as they have done in the past.

The only way to prevent that is to pass legislation with a simple majority. We have already seen how quick the Republicans were to appoint Supreme Court Justices with a simple majority.

If the Democrats are fortunate enough to win with landslide numbers, they may be able to hold onto the House and Senate for several elections? Of course, that is never a guarantee.

There are a lot of problems that need to be fixed. Ideally, Republicans would join with Democrats to fix them, but that is nothing we would want to bet on.

Once the country was back on the right track, the Democrats could vote to restore the filibuster rule, preferably before the next election.

Would the Republicans be for it or against it? If they thought they were going to win, they would be against restoring the filibuster rule. If they thought their odds were too long, they might agree to restore it? Either way, the Democrats would put the decision back in their laps.

It would not be an easy decision.
