    Just like his attempts to impose federal force into local law enforcement continues to telegraph Trumps authoritarian bent, so now the are significant concerns that he will defy an election result where he loses. Well now he takes another step in his inexorable march to dictator by proposing a 'delay' in the 2020 election.

    It doesn't matter why he would do it, it doesn't matter if he fails to do it, the fact he is trying to do it is sufficient. The traitors to this nation that routinely justify Trump's excess will likely support this as well. And I have no interest whatsoever in their justifications. What I want to be is on record with the simple fact that I've warned you about this president from day 1. And as an election nears that he will lose unless he cheats in some form or fashion, how far he will go to retain his power will become more and more evident as the days progress.

    He has proposed removing term limits. He has infiltrated the DOJ with Cronies willing to do his bidding, to let his friends convictions by judge and jury be overlooked, to punish his enemies. He has put unvetted people beholden only to him in charge of the DHS and leveraged this already questionable agency's power into his own personal nationalized police force. He has gutted relations with NATO to the delight of Putin, and now is removing Troops from Germany. He has twice welcomed foreign powers that are our enemies to interfere on his behalf wrt our elections and done his best to deny their involvement. He has brought this nation to its knees by refusing to deal with the Covid Pandemic according to science and best practice. And now he is putting in to remove the most important element of our republic, free elections themselves.

    He is a traitor to and a clear and present danger to this nation.

    This is not his first effort to cement his position as president for life. I urge all of you that have a mind and have not been blinded by your hatred of liberalism to accept Trump's danger to our nation and our way of life to do all you legally can to make sure this man is out of office by January 2021. To make sure his efforts to undermine the election fail clearly and cleanly.

    I remember when the thought of NOT delaying an election in the midst of a pandemic was the height of Authoritarian tactics. However, that was when Republicans were trying to hold one in Wisconsin and democrats wanted to delay it.

      As long as there is any travel between countries, it's going to be a challenge to keep it eradicated.

      But it would be nice if a normal week for the US wasn't 100 times as many cases per capita as a "big surge" in New Zealand.

          It’s a great idea. Makes for strategic elections. If they feel they can pick up some extra seats because some other party member has been caught cheating on his wife or they want to pass a pretty popular piece of legislation but don’t have the votes they can roll the dice.

          No term limits, when you’re on winning streak you don’t call it day because your wife expects you home at a certain time. You keep on going and going and going all night and the next if you have to. People get sick of you eventually, John Howard won four elections and decided to run again and lost his seat.

          Actually called a snap election during his first term because of his growing unpopularity before it got worse. His party lost a huge number of seats to the opposition but retained just enough to still form government.

            In MaranathaLand, with slightly fewer people than New Zealand, there has been 0 cases of chiner virus.

            New Zealand is like a field of death compared to MaranathaLand.

                Pretty sure the population in the US is slightly higher than New Zealand's.

                        That's why I said, "per capita".
