Do Democrats Have a Plan if Election Has Uncertain or Disputed Result?

I was originally going to post the first part of a new series on why all the much touted “advances” in computer technology within past 25 years (hardware and software) have either not improved quality of life or actually made things worse. But due to a combination of laziness and need to fix some parts of that post, I decided to write about a fairly easy, but still important, topic. About two months ago, I wrote something about whether Democrats had a contingency plan if Trump cancelled the 2020 election. That post was inspired by Trump’s fall in relative popularity at that time combined with resurgence in COVID-19 cases. Since then Trump’s popularity seems to be increasing and the “second wave” of COVID-19 cases seems to have only a fraction of mortality as first wave. In other words, it now appears that the presidential race will be far closer than many establishment Democrats and their fanboys (such as MikeCA) had expected.

As you might also remember, in that post, I had also raised the possibility of Republicans trying to suppress voting and reduce turnout from areas with large democratic party vote-banks. Such vote suppression efforts can take various forms like shorter windows for advance voting, voter ID bullshit, reduction in number of polling centers, delays in processing postal ballots and disputing their validity. Let us also assume that Republicans will go full tilt and partially succeed in some ‘swing’ states. So, do establishment Democrats have a strategy, infrastructure and personal to handle such problems? Some of you might think, that they could be successful at defeating such efforts by Republicans. I don’t think so, and here is why.. While Democratic party could counter such efforts in a few populous states such as CA, WA, NY, NJ, MA and even in states such as NV and CO the reality is that Democratic party lacks the infrastructure and motivated personnel to do the same in swing states such as FL, MI, OH, PA, WI, MN, IA or even potential ones such as TX.

In other words, unless Dementia Joe maintains a persistent and large margin over Orange Troll from now till election day in ALL those swing states, it is very likely that Trump will carry most or all of them- thanks in no small part to Republican shenanigans. And this brings us to some very interesting possibilities. The least likely, but not totally improbable, one in 2020 concerns the possibility that both Dementia Joe and Orange Troll end up with 269 electoral college votes. FYI, 269 * 2 = 538. Does anybody here think that Trump will step down from office if we end up with a 269-269 EC vote scenario? On Twitter, many idiots aka rich coastal LIEbrals think that getting Trump to step down is as easy as the secret service agents asking him to step down. Let us, for a second, ignore the full implications of what they are dreaming about.. but ask yourself, is it even realistic.. especially if there are still tons of election-related lawsuits still going on in multiple states by inauguration day in January 2021?

And it gets worse.. what if there is a dramatic uptick in violent and lethal confrontations between AntiFa types and right-wing armed vigilantes of the type we saw in Kenosha and Portland within last few days? What happens if armed vigilantes target voting stations during early voting or on election day? Don’t believe it can’t happen in USA? Maybe.. that was the case in pre-2016 era, but it is certainly no longer true.. especially in the highly polarized and nihilistic socio-political environment of late-2020. There are too many angry, unhappy, tired, desperate people without any good prospects for future who will become enthusiastic foot-soldiers for extremist political movement at either end of political spectrum. Remember that all of this has occurred before during 1920s and early-1930s in aftermath of WW1 and the Great Depression. I have always maintained that the socio-economic dislocation caused by lockdowns etc to supposedly contain COVID-19 in combination with previous dismal economic trends seen in dying empires have the potential to cause a lot of “unforeseen consequences”.

But wait.. there is more. Given the ongoing intentional degradation of postal services + unusually high rate of postal ballot rejection and “misplacement” we have seen in recent primaries, what are the chances that this sort of bullshit won’t occur on a much larger scale during presidential election? But isn’t this identical to the electoral shenanigans which I predict Republicans will try to pull off this autumn? Well.. not quite, because intentionally delaying tabulation and certification of votes is not the same thing as preventing them from being cast in the first place. So why would it matter? Well.. because in a very close result in ‘swing’ states, we might end up two or more sets of conflicting certifications as to who won the state in question. So it is perfectly possible for the state of Wisconsin, as an example, to issue two sets of conflicting certifications- each by one set of known partisan representatives or officials. So.. do Democrats have a plan for the eventuality that more than one swing state might issue conflicting certifications of electoral tabulation?

More importantly, how long do these credentialed dummies think that people will wait for a clear electoral result before they start deciding the victor by themselves. Do they think that people will wait for a few days.. maybe a week? What about a few weeks? What happens if there are no unequivocal results as to who won election by Inauguration Day 2021? Are Democrats delusional enough to believe that Trump will concede in any situation where he hasn’t been very soundly defeated in the election? If you do.. I have a bridge to sell. Do they realize how bad the economic situation (especially job loss and unemployment benefits) could become between Election and Inauguration Day? Do they have any idea how bad this clusterfuck could become? I am sure that MikeCA will chime in at any moment to tell us how none of this come to pass and how Biden has a big and unbeatable lead over Trump. Just like 2016.. right?

What do you think? Comments?

      So, AD. You berate MikeCA who had the nerve to cogently disagree with you now and then, yet you tolerate this non-sequitur trolling bullshit? You have some interesting ideas now and then, but I can’t take this blog seriously anymore. I’m sure MikeCA has better things to do with his time. So do I.

      MikeCA blames everything bad occurring in USA on “Russia”, “Putin” and “Foreign Interference”. According to him there is nothing intrinsically bad or problematic about USA. In that respect, he is no different from Trump-heads who want to “Make American Great Again”.

    “resurgence in COVID-19 cases”
    This is an MSM meme. In all the countries where they are worried about renewed outbreaks there has been almost no detectable uptick in serious cases. For any other disease, a case means you present with symptoms and get tested, not you get tested without symptoms. The numbers are not comparable to March, because the testing gateways protocols were completely different.
    Another astonishing misperception is that all over the world people are convinced that it is worse in the US than anywhere (Trump). In fact, the US is not exceptional in terms of per capita deaths, and is doing better than I would have expected in view of the prevalence there of known co-morbidities.
    Countries that have done ‘better’ (NZ Aus Germany HongKong) are facing a much longer tail, since containment simply is not a viable strategy. The similarity of the infection & death curve everywhere strongly indicates that community suppression has long take effect in most jurisdictions, but officials just keep going with this biosecurity threat narrative.

    Dude, these riots aren’t about economic stagnation these White privileged kids are facing. These are Woke cultural-Marxist deranged ideologues. Neoliberalism destroyed Blue Collar workers’ jobs and COVID hit those jobs the most. Blue collar workers tend to be Trump supporters statistically. They protested in Michigan but did they vandalize and start beating up random people on the streets and looting stores? They didn’t! Stop conflating a regressive Leftists ideology group as something comparable to the Yellow Vesters in France.This ain’t it Sherlock.

      The riots are an expression of class struggle just like the yellow vests, however in America where people are propagandized to oblivion they don’t have the knowledge or ability to articulate an organized platform. So the unfocused anger results in rioting and looting. Looting is an obvious attack on the rich and big business, although you might not approve of it because of your pearl clutching white bitch sensibilities. Also, “cultural Marxism” doesn’t exist except in the minds of angry white losers whose wives are out getting black dick while their backs are turned.

        From what I’ve seen, leftists have been terrorizing small family businesses, while staying far away from big businesses that are are well-protected by private security guards.

        Target, CVS and a few other big chain retailers might disagree with your belief.

        @Lqr:

        What you don’t seem to understand is that extremism tends to converge to actions that are identical regardless of where in the political spectrum they were previously.

        Like Brenton Harrison Tarrant wrote: WHY WON’T SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING?
        WHY WON’T SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING?
        WHY DON’T I DO SOMETHING?
        The spell broke, why don’t I do something?
        Why not me?
        If not me, then who?
        Why them when I could do it myself?
        It was there I decided to do something, it was there I decided to take
        action, to commit to force.To commit to violence.

        Ya, it’s amazing how, to fight terrorism, you become a terrorist.

        Like the saying Fighting for peace is like fucking for virginity.

    Ugh,

    The cultural appropriation crew is going to make Stardusk very, very mad on this because he hates muzzles…

    BTW, join my collective and accept my leadership uncritically because I am incompetent like Paul Elam. I demand that all men’s rights benefit white men first and that non-white men do all the handwork I am too dumb and lazy too do. I am just like that Chuck Rudd guy!
