…and the beat goes on…..
It’s common knowledge that the Republican Party has a harder time being competitive at the polls when the weather is nice and more people turn out to vote. Voting by mail is, of course, is a “work-around-the-weather” that the GOP criticizes because Democratic voters tend to outnumber Republicans when voters don’t want to stand in the rain. As you can see above, voting more conveniently “by mail” is perceived by President Trump and the GOP as “a threat to the nation,” but perceived as “the right to vote” by Democrats. Voting by mail is not illegal. It’s been common-place since The Civil War when Union troops mailed their votes from the battlefields. Let’s hope our election system survives this latest attack on American values and traditions. Despite Trump’s statement above, voting by mail is NOT cheating. Donald Trump votes by mail. He’s a long-time mail-in-voter from New York, and now from Florida where he has declared, in writing, his official state residency.
