    Texas did make it very hard for ordinary people to vote. They need a court case shoved down their gizzard.

    For most of my life, America could claim some kind of moral high ground in terms of democracy and rule of law. Trump has discarded that like yesterday’s garbage and incredibly Republicans seem to want to get down in the offal with Trump. It’s going to be a tough job to undo all the damage to our nation they have caused in their self-serving, sniveling, greedy and just plain despicable insanity.

    Explain. Are you saying that the electors will ignore the popular vote in their states and go with partisan inclinations or the political will of state leaders? Let's get this out in the open: you don't believe in democracy? Or the Constitution of our republic? Or federalism? Or the laws of the land? All that counts for you is victory for your side?

    Sure you can use the psychology angle, but these people have always been out there. Trump calls them the silent majority,
    I call them the vocal minority.

    Rarely do we ever heard from them but when we do they generally make a splash in the news like ………..

    Ruby Ridge in 1992
    The Branch Davidians in Waco Tx in 1993
    The Oklahoma City Bombers Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols in 1995
    Eric Rudolph the Olympic Park Bomber in 1996
    The 2014 Bundy standoff in Nevada between supporters of cattle rancher Cliven Bundy and law enforcement
    Their Bible: Not the Christian one with a vengeful God, but The Turner Diaries, a novel which depicts a violent revolution in the United States which
    leads to the overthrow of the federal government, a nuclear war, and, ultimately, a race war which leads to the extermination of Blacks, Hispanics, and Jews

    These people have always been out there, but for the first time they finally have a leader to rally around in Donald Trump

    There should be space in our prisons for Republicans.

    Interesting angles to SCOTUS's decision in the Texas case. The basis was lack of standing. Texas and the other 20 nebnoses had no business butting in to the business of their sister states' electoral laws. A victory for federalism, which the Retrumplicans used to be big on. And all three of the Trump appointees went with the opinion of the court There were only two concurrences: Alito and Thomas. They differed from the majority for technical procedural reasonss: they didn't think standing was applicable in an original jurisdiction case (states suing other states). But they said they agreed relief should not be granted on other grounds.

    So what's next for the Retrumplicans? Will they refuse to accept the decision of the Electoral College. Will Trump take Gen.Flynn's advice, declare martial law, and declare the November election null and void. Stay tuned for another exciting episode of the Carnival of Madness!

    Here is the actual ruling.
    The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution,” read the court's one-page order. “Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot.”

    Now that Putin and Moscow Mitch have thrown in the towel and acknowledged Biden's victory, how long will Qanator hold out? I've found some tasty recipes for crow!

    Yes and McConnell warned Republican Senators not to reject the election results when Congress convenes on January 6, taking away the only last-resort option Trump had. But he still won't concede as long as he keeps making money by saying it was rigged.
