Capitol incursion

The fury first got started when potential (and the traditional) Trump 2024 GOP opponents saw an opportunity and cast Election Integrity lawsuits and investigations as an “attack on democracy” to score political points.  Trump was obviously not the only one that questioned the 2020 elections.

In a similar vein and not that unusual in the political game, the current VP elect called her own President elect a racist in the 2020 primaries over his use of “racial jungle” to oppose integrated schools, and “super predators” to describe young Black men to advance a crime bill.  It has been reported that HRC used the same language. So it is not unheard of for party infighting.

Then later, the same Trump GOP opponents saw another opportunity when they were the very first to cast Trumps’ Capitol rally  words as “inciting a riot”. Democrats and the Media (sometimes referred to as Fake News by Trump) then saw that opportunity and jumped on it. As of today, another impeachment trial is looming.

The angst continues today as more and more people and organizations are deleted and cancelled from tech payment and message platforms.

So, the latest debate questions what exactly is inciting violence and what is protected speech. 

The debate over so-called “private” companies being able to set their own rules and regulations regarding speech, behavior, and membership continues.  Even Obama insisted, “you didn’t build that”.  The idea is that there is no completely private organization if it participates in the public sphere and marketplace and the laws and regulations.

2020 Elections and Shopify

Shopify does not tolerate actions that incite violence.

Based on recent events, we have determined that the actions by President Donald J. Trump violate our Acceptable Use Policy, which prohibits promotion or support of organizations, platforms or people that threaten or condone violence to further a cause.

As a result, we have terminated stores affiliated with President Trump”

US inner cities

Maybe no other GOP theme was more important than the misery index in many US inner cities that have been under Democrat rule for decades.

Disproportionately impacting minorities and the poor.

Biden/Harris never said a word.  The front and center topic was never raised in the Democratic primaries or in the debates.

The Media now wants us to believe that comfortable White suburban college educated women were willing to throw away all of the progress the Trump admin made on this paramount issue and others just because they don’t like Trump’s style?

Elections do have consequences for the voter and their fellow citizens.

If Biden wins, he must keep up the pressure on this issue.  There can be nothing worse than to fear for your own safety in your own neighborhood.

Maybe the fear of war is worse.

Ballot harvesting

“Once you have received your ballot, under no circumstances permit any campaign workers to fill in your choices or attempt to influence the way you vote.” — Basic Election Law

Evolution of Ballot Cultivation and Harvesting 101.  Let’s do harvesting first.

Step1: Find a senior for example, drive her to get registered.  She has no idea why or for whom, but happy to help “this nice young fella”.  Then pick her up and drive her to the polls with instructions.

Step2: Implement motor-voter registration.  Increases the potential crop yield and also the number of non-residents registered and therefore voting.

Step3: Implement early voting, since Step1 doesn’t have a real high ROI.

Step4: Implement vote-by-mail, ballot sent upon request.  Now some real possibilities for massive fraud and irregularities.

Step5: Implement vote-by-mail, ballot unsolicited.  Wow!

The variations of ballot cultivation and harvesting are numerous.  10’s of millions of unsolicited blank ballots laying around all over the country but concentrated in a few urban areas in each State that arrive late (why?) and skew 75% in many cases Democrat (why?)
