Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Vote-by-Mail Must Never Be Implemented


Now that the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic is full-fledged, many politicians and government officials across the US are pushing for a dangerous policy— voting by mail. This policy would allow citizens across the country to mail-in ballots instead of going to a secure polling location. This policy should raise a plethora of red flags when it comes to the legitimacy of US elections.

Inaccurate Voter Rolls


Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to the U.S. shifting military resources to the Middle East to address an apparent threat against American forces by Iran. They’re also getting tired of Democrats refusing to accept the results of elections they obviously didn’t win, as Sen. Kamala Harris tells the NAACP that voter suppression is the only reason Democrats didn’t win governors’ races in Georgia and Florida and Joe Biden suggests states are bringing back Jim Crow laws to suppress the minority vote. And Jim walks through multiple reasons why virtually no one wants New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to run for president in 2020.


Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer a robust October jobs report, which shows 250,000 new jobs last month, rising wages, and job growth in every sector.

And they take a moment to discuss the Green Party U.S. Senate candidate dropping out in Arizona, and Jim says the party is losing it’s greatest marketing ploy of all time.

In this special edition we talk about three topics. First, what happened in Virginia? Was it the repudiation of Trumpism? Was it rather the repudiation of NeverTrumpism? Is there any meaningful justification for the continued existence in the pundit sphere of Evan McMullin, Bill Kristol, Jennifer Rubin, Bret Stephens, etc, etc, etc??? Mike tries his hardest to advance the “dignity in the White House”/”the (Grand Old) Party is better off out of power than being trodden upon by Trump” arguments of the McMullin holdouts amongst our listeners. We know you are out there. I won’t go as far as to say that we feel your pain.

Scott Adams advocates a sort of psychological form of voter suppression: http://blog.dilbert.com/post/152226715516/how-to-legally-vote-more-than-once In my own very Democratic state, it’d be a waste of time, except for improving his overall popular vote. My question- is it ethical to discourage Clinton supporters from voting? More
