The real reason trump says mail-in voting causes fraud…mirror, mirror on the way…
Do you remember how trump lambasted Obama for all the time he spent golfing? Remember how he indicated that, if elected, he would be too busy doing his job to golf? Have you noticed that Trump has been at the golf course, especially ones that he has a financial investment in, far more than Obama ever was?
Now, remember how he yelled that he believed that the 2016 election was rigged? He refused to agree to honor whoever the republican nominee was unless it was him getting the nomination because that would mean it was rigged? Ok, Ted Cruz led the way on this little exercise and indicated that he would be very unlikely to support trump since he attacked Cruz’s wife. That is understandable. But Trump only had just accusations that he had been treated badly. The election is rigged, I have not been treated well.
So what did we find out? Whether it was the intelligence community or the Mueller Report, the election was in fact, “rigged”….by trump and the Russians. Ok, maybe they didn’t “collude” but that was only because trump’s transition team was too divided and busy backbiting to get together in order to be effective at taking full advantage of the help being offered.
So finally, we have him worried about mail-in ballots for voting. This is a measure that several states are considering to keep people from dying of Covid-19. This health measure scares trump because according to his own words if mail ballots are allowed, no republican will ever be elected again. That sounds very much like in his nightmares, he actually realizes that the republican party, as it exists today, does not represent the American public.
But he does have one thing right. Ruthless and greedy people are likely to try to illegally vote using mail-in ballots. However, it should be easy for trump to find out who the culprit is. All he has to do is take a mirror and stand in front of it and look at the reflection.
Yes, in case you are wondering, I am saying that once more trump is guilty of the very thing(s) he is worried that others might do. Just as he told a story about committing bribery to get officials to give him whatever he wants, in the world of business, he is now the one voting illegally.
In March, he voted by mail in Florida. The man doesn’t have a legal address in Florida. He used Mar-a-Lago which he signed an agreement with Palm Springs thirty years ago, he would never use it as a residence. it is a resort, not a private home. So, without petitioning for any kind of legal change of the designation, or variance, he just registered as living at a golf course and voted by mail.
That, my friends, is called voting illegally. So, trump can’t take the chance that a democrat might figure out how to do that and actually vote and not take the chance of getting Covid-19. Those methods are only supposed to be used by Trump himself. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am tired of having a man in the White House that does worse on just about every issue than he is afraid somebody else MIGHT try doing.
So, I have a trick for him. I live in New Orleans. I am a democrat. I would vote by mail to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19, especially considering it might just come back in the fall/winter per the medical experts like Fauci. But Louisiana is not wanting to go with mail-in votes. I am still going to vote because four more years of Trump might just be more dangerous than Covid-19.
Vote, your life just might depend on it. If you question that, just remember this last week and people hit with tear gas, rubber bullets, and hard pushes on the street for daring to protest police brutality that was shown on video in all its horrible details.
