A damning mountain of evidence points to the ineluctable conclusion that up to five million votes were fraudulently cast in the last general election. This evidence is being held in an unusual location: the addled minds of 45 and his intensely loyal, reality-denying followers.
But these phantasmagorical vote thieves have made some rethink the regular and judicious application of the democratic process. A new Washington Post/Qualtrics poll shows 52% of self-identified Republicans
would support postponing the 2020 election, and 56 percent said they would do so if both Trump and Republicans in Congress proposed this.
The hand is tipped, the fascistic future partially unfurled. There are people who want to shut you up and keep you down. No amount of well-intentioned reach-across-the-aisle gestures will alter their comfort with denying you the right to vote against the man – and the abhorant ideas swirling around him – they cherish.
