3. The fact that they won't win doesn't make it any less astounding.

I had the lowest imaginable hope for the country after Trump's election, yet I never imagined us here.

10. Yep, they don't have enough votes.

And they are likely in red districts so they expect this to be a popular move with their consituents.

15. Yes.

And safety in numbers. They’re also gambling with the idea of this Biden opposition catching hold in critical mass so it can be seen as a legitimate force (it won’t).

28. McConnell won't

cave. He's too worried getting Perdue and Loeffler in. Plus he will not "be bullied" by no one telling him to give Americans $2000 dollars either.

A war started with Iran??? I don't think so, tRump's ass will be out.

And they voted to disregard the EC. Do they need both Senate and house to overturn the election

26. So one party could, if they so decided, declare all of our votes null and void ...

If they had a simple majority in each house, and insufficient defectors to stop it?

That's freaking outrageous.

30. Yup, if that is how it plays out,

I can see a future where that could happen.

And with the luck that Dems have as of now, It would probably wind up with us getting the short straw.

Frightening.

I'm sure all those courts got it all wrong.

Given their disrespect for the court system, these bozos should not be involved in writing or passing laws.

32. As one comment states

If the House was under Republican majority, and if the Senate was so inclined, then we could have been facing a complete over turn of this Presidential election.

I think that just shows us how close we were to that happening.

I am glad McConnell has no desire to pull any nonsense on this. Although he is still firmly at the top of my $h!t list.

37. It's a bit scary but hopefully only political theater

The irony is that those who have this delusion about Dems being the tyrants are the ones who want to overturn the will of the people.

But I think we'd need an even more radicalized Trumpian Repub party. 140 of them doing this now is scary enough but I think it's mostly theater. I think if it wouldn't be a meaningless gesture, a considerable part of them wouldn't do that if it actually had consequences. There have been similar examples with the tea party caucus, Dems calling their bluff by not voting and the rest of the Repubs had to step in to stop their bills going through. At least it's my hope that the whole Repub party wouldn't be traitors. Now, if they had 250-275+ members, that would be another story.
