It’s easy to say, harder for the Democrats to do.
Honestly, the thing I remember most about Trump is not a slogan, a hat, or clichés. He made a big deal out of being treated fairly. He demanded it. He skipped a debate when first running because he said he wasn’t being treated fairly. He did not do interviews on certain networks or shows and claimed the same. Back when I had cable (before the Blog Father straightened me out) I remember Trump telling Bill O’Reilly that he wasn’t treating him fairly. On Fox no less!
Voter fraud was his thing… and he was very vocal during Covid.
How do you beat him legitimately? Easy.
Stop sending a ballot to every Tom, Dick, Harry, and everyone else. Yes, even in liberal mecca California you used to have to request a mail in ballot. Have voting centers open for dropping the ballot off. The local library, heck even the local watering hole may have had a drop off box for ballots last election. In California (and elsewhere) ballots are also sent to each person who wants one, even if you have died or move away. When I bought my house, the ex-owners got ballots for 3 years. Even when presented with proof of out of state registration (wife) or a death certificate (husband), the county registrar’s office didn’t care. Literally voter fraud is supported in Sacramento County.
My point? Quit this process.
Count all ballots on election night. None of this California bullshit of counting ballots for a good month plus after the election. (The truth is that in many areas, all ballots are not counted.) No broken pipes, no leaving for the day and coming back tomorrow. Bring in temporary workers, I could care less. Make sure the water main doesn’t “break” or have the webcam be “down.” Do vote count updates in real time. We need to know the winner by midnight in California.
Vote in person or request a ballot via mail. Require ballots to be returned by a certain date. A webcam should be live streaming the vote counting process. Count them all that night. No breaks, pauses or anything. This removes Trumps biggest card of fraud and not being treated fairly. Trust me, do what I suggest and the conspiracy folks will have nothing to shout about. Beat him fairly, like I laid out, and there will be no insurrection, stealing, cheating, or anything else. If he tries to pull that card, he and his supporters will be laughed at.
