Three pillars of Trumpís case for reelection are collapsing all at once
KEY POINTS:
- President Trumpís reelection campaign was designed under the premise that the economy would be strong through November, but thatís not true anymore.
- Trump also planned to make socialism a central focus of his attacks. But without Bernie Sanders to run against, this argument becomes a lot less potent.
- Trump campaigned on ďdraining the swampĒ of big government. Now he wants Americans to trust in big government to fight coronavirus and save the economy.

i disagree with the last point, it's a bit disingenuous.  "draining the swamp" isn't quite the same thing as reigning in big government.  but otherwise, interesting points.

There's always Hunter.

Reached out to my local VA Senator (Adam P. Ebbin...I don't remember voting for him?) for an update on getting Vote by Mail done for VA and thought I'd share


Thank you for your email in regard to vote by mail options for upcoming elections. According to the Virginia Department of Elections, all Virginians are eligible to vote by mail for upcoming elections in May by marking reason "2A My disability or illness" for Absentee voting in the May 2020 elections due to COVID-19.

With the passage of HB1 during this year's legislative session, all Virginians are eligible to vote "no-excuse absentee" in this Fall's election. Senator Ebbin will continue to advocate for expanded ability for voting and ensure the safety of all residents during these trying times.


I still think they should push to get it like Washington state, but at least "no-excuse absentee" is now available.
(technically Northam needs to sign, but zero likelyhood he won't)

they keep saying the quiet things out loud

The Washington Post @washingtonpost
Analysis: Trump just comes out and says it: The GOP is hurt when itís easier to vote


I just don't get how GOP/Republicans can talk about Fair this and Fair that...it is such bullshit
We need to get vote by mail NOW
If the Dems take it all in Nov, they better make things like this a priority and not be nice like Obama was when he had the chance
Electoral reform is urgent
I remember Smax posted something from the economist in 2017 (was that when I graduated High School...seems like forever ago)
something like Dems need to get 54% of the vote to win...

After that...DC and Pureto Rico Statehood.

Yes....Nancy gets it!
Speaker Pelosi: "We're going to MOVE to vote by mail..The integrity of our election system is central to our Democracy..I don't know how anyone could oppose our enabling our states to have vote by mail..Public opinion will weigh in on that!"
