OK.  Noted and archived.  I disagree.

That one is easy for two reasons: I wasn’t horrified because I am not a Trump follower.  Jorgensen is my favorite of this bunch of yahoos.  Secondly, it doesn’t matter if POTUS wants to delay an election, because POTUS doesn’t control that process,  states do.  Ours is the United States, not the United People of America.  It’s a feature, not a bug.


States run elections, they figure out who gets to go to the Electoral College, the Supreme Court decides who won at the EC in December, new POTUS sworn in by SCOTUS on 20 January, POTUS has no say in any of that.


It’s a great system.  I love the constitution.  The anvil wears out the hammers.
