Dear Leader is trying to rig the election by attacking voting by mail

Trumplings, please explain why voting by mail is so terrible particularly in the middle of a pandemic.  I'm from Oregon and when I started traveling for a living I started to vote by mail and have never voted any other way since.  I just looked this up: "Oregon has been processing mail-in ballots longer than any other state, and in 2000 became the first state to conduct a presidential election completely by mail."  As far as I can remember, the first and last time I voted in a voting booth was when I voted for Jerry Ford.  I've regretted that vote ever since.  

I've lived in Washington state for decades now and have always voted by mail here.  Voting by mail became so popular here that now it's the only way we vote here and nobody complains about it.  Both sides, left and right are fine with it and virtually nobody wants to go back to the voting booth.  "Every registered voter in Washington receives a mail-in ballot prior to an election."

 So go ahead, try to convince me how terrible voting by mail is.

Jerry Nadler thinks mail-in voting is ripe for fraud:

PS- You claim there is no problem in your state with mail in voting? That's because Democrats always win there. I have a feeling conservatives say otherwise.

"PS- You claim there is no problem in your state with mail in voting? That's because Democrats always win there. I have a feeling conservatives say otherwise."

You don't have to wonder. You can just google the subject and you'll quickly learn that virtually no one in this state or or in Oregon is complaining or has ever complained about voting by mail. You'll pretend otherwise of course because you're a passenger on the Trumptanic but your opinion isn't reality.

Because that's what Trumpism essentially is. A game of let's pretend.

Which is hilarious because not only Trump himself but his wife, Pence and his wife, and many of his advisers have voted by mail. It's only "dangerous" now because he knows if he doesn't find a way to suppress votes he may be out of office soon.

He should be out right now for making it clear he is desperate to hang onto power however he can.

Three or four years ago the most cautious analysts held back on labelling him a fascist because (at the time) he'd done nothing to dismantle the democratic process. Well, as predicted...

@ Mint-tea - The vast majority of the military of the United States of America votes by mail. Not only overseas troops but also the troops based here in the United States. Most military personnel, particularly the younger ones, vote in the districts that they grew up in using their parents mailing address, so although they are in the United States they still vote by mail. The vast majority of troops overseas also vote by mail using their parents mailing address.

Is Trump going to disenfranchise the military? It sorta looks that way.

He's desperate to stop the election because he knows he's going to lose and, being a fascist, that isn't an option for him.

He's going after the postal service now. He wants to wreck the postal service so people won't get their ballots on time.

This isn't something sneaky or anything at all disguised, this is just flat out crystal clear voter suppression.

There is no depth too low for this criminal psychopathic piece of shit to sink.

First they came for the postal service, and I did not speak out because I did not work for the postal service...
