    So now we’re into the 12th amendment and contingent elections, with the new House electing the potus, and each state getting one vote. That would easily favor the Republicans at this time. This entire process would make 1824, 1876, and 2000 look rather calm, don’t you think?


    I might think it would be an SC decision, rather than stopping at Appeals. However, to do with the Electorate as decided by States, the SC might just pass on that as being political. Or should. I mean, if this decision is appealed to the SC, would they take the case? Or, maybe those who might appeal but don't like the makeup of the court won't apppeal for that reason. But, sure, it would make any prior close Electorate vs. popular decided win relatively calm. I hope I live long enough to see this happen. But not see Armageddon, open revolt or Trump fondling the American flag again.

    Many people don't like Trump, but they like being smeared as a bunch of racists even less. They dislike and are repelled by the unfair and false rhetoric coming from the extreme left, which appears to be in control of the Democratic Party agenda.

    The Left doesn't seem to understand that for a meme to be effective, there has to be accuracy behind it. "Crooked Hillary" "Fredo" and "Alexandria Cowfarts Cortez" are effective because they show the true character of who they are pointed at.

    "Trump and his supporters are racist" falls flat because there is no real truth to it.

    Correction the OP said "too stupid to govern". Then he went on to state "insult them and shame them until they join us" strategy isn't going to work.

    The OP is correct. It isn't going to work but it also shows something that is happening to a number of persons in the Democratic party that should be red flags because this mindset of leftist/liberals of insulting, shaming, identifying anyone who dares not to agree with their policies and then takes it a step further and on venues like social media wanting to destroy anyone who is at odds with them or taking it to the streets to personally harass them.

    Today I came across a video of an interview that Piers Morgan gave recently. Morgan has been and identifies today as a liberal. He doesn't mince his words in this video even describing the tactics the left are now engaged in to be fascist-like and is hypocritical to what they claim to believe. I posted it in another thread earlier but I am going to post it here again because it gives me hope that there are liberals out there like Piers Morgan that get it.

    Some good points, but the Democrat Party is under the control of extreme right wing sociopaths, not the left.

    From your source (and referring to a Beto O'Rourke remark):

    This is really, really stupid. Most Americans don't hate Trump as much as most liberal Democrats do. Most Americans see through the hysterical exaggerations about Trump and many appear bewildered by the vitriol. Even if they don't like Trump -- and there are many reasons not to -- the Democrats' rhetoric offends their sense of fair play. Thus, every time Democrats go off on Trump, accusing him of all sorts of perfidy and hateful things, Trump probably gets another 10,000 votes.

    We don't want the votes of the racists and Trump apologists still standing with Donald Trump. We want the GOP to keep those votes and the mentality that provided them. We see them are corrosive and dangerous to the country. The GOP sees them as saviors. We are all good.

    What have the Squad's members said that has approached Trump's bigotry?

    None of those things are racist is the least. The one with the race issues is clearly you.
    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add within the limits of the law, because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.--Thomas Jefferson
