People thinking there will be a “red wave” tonight are going to be disappointed. Not because a lot of people won’t vote Republican. It’s because our elections are no longer resolved on election night. They are resolved through a long, agonizing street fight in the courts over what votes get counted and what don’t. I won’t be staying up to watch the returns tonight.
That’s the point of the Democrat push for mail-in voting, early voting and the general resistance to any voting integrity laws. I don’t think it is necessarily because they have specific plans for fraud. It’s because a chaotic election that gets resolved through post-election bureaucracies will always favor them, the party of bureaucrats. The left is always about results not process, and if destroying the process gets them better results, then so be it.
It’s laughable seeing pundits talk about races where the Republican is up +2 or +3, and what it will mean for congressional majorities on election night. A critical election where the Republican wins by +2 on election night will not be resolved on election night. It will be resolved months from now, after the election bureaucrats pull every trick they know to push the Dem over the line. All the loose voting rules just given them room to maneuver, that is their only point. It’s disgusting and embarrassing, but that is where we are now, and I can’t watch it anymore. It’s too nauseating.Published in
