Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Should Wisconsin Democrats have let the Republican judge win??!

FFS, there was an election of a WI supreme court judge in Wisconsin.

People, EVERYONE, should have mailed in a vote. BUT Republicans in the courts stopped the extension of absentee ballots.

So some Democrats risked illness to vote for a Democratic judge.

Should they have stayed home and let the Republican win?

Before answering, remember this moment right now. It's okay to give up on freedom when Republicans force you.

Remember it in November if we are still stuck at home. Republicans will NOT extend absentee ballots there either.

By judging people who risked illness to vote for a Democrat when forced, we are allowing Republicans to use our words against us in November. We are also pushing Sanders supporters away for no good reason.

AGAIN.

Can we please, please, please respect each other?

1. An Unexpected Pleasure, Sir, To Find Myself In Agreement With You

 

You are quite correct in this, and Democrats and others who did go out to the polls showed patriotic courage worth respect. I hope all come through the exposure in good health.

11. Sure, but is there any real disagreement in this?

 

Certainly not among all the WI Democrats who turned out.

13. It Seemed Politic To Demonstrate Friendliness, Ma'am

 

In the new spirit of comity we must strive for. There were one or two things in his comment I overlooked, but no matter. He's an awfully prickly fellow, for an apostle of unity, it seems to me....

15. As our new party leader, VP Biden, constantly demonstrates.

 

I'm also with everyone that voting was necessary and right. I'm proud of them.

Carry on.

2. The DNC or associated PAC should turn it into an ad

 

Actually interview individuals and criticize the GOP for their heartless decisions that caused this to happen

Use it as a hammer all the way up to the election.

Thank you to the patriots who went out to vote.

6. So your answer is let the Republicans win.

 

People had to make a personal decision between difficult choices of risk illness (and possibly rarely death) or lose an election which by the way also affects people in many ways for years to come. Elections affect court decisions and policy implementations which also affect death and freedoms. Plus, what you are advocating is EXACTLY A REPUBLICAN TALKING POINT in November if we're still stuck.

It just isn't helpful to make these impractical attacks against Democratic voters. It's divisive and will backfire.

8. It Is Far From Clear, Sir

 

How the post you replied to is an attack on Democratic voters. Or, for that matter, how the person you address is advocating a Republican talking point.

The comment seems no more than a statement of fact --- people risked death to cast ballots this Tuesday past in person in Wisconsin. There will be people dead because of this. It was within the power of a Republican legislature to have removed much or all of this risk, and within the power of Republicans on the Supreme Court to assist in mitigating this risk in some degree. Both chose not to do so, for reasons that seemed good enough to them, though not to anyone whose morale development exceeds that of a sociopath. They preferred to, in effect, threaten voters with death should they dare to cast ballots; something no different than occurs when a guerrilla movement threatens shootings or bombings at polling stations in parts of the world on occasion. Perhaps you will now suggest I am spreading a Republican talking point? Or attacking Democratic voters, or being divisive?

9. No very proud of Wisconsin...but no one should risk this...and Sanders did GOTV for his campaign

 

I do hope he doesn't continue to do that in states like CT where the primary could be cancelled with no ill effect. But all those still on the ballot would need to agree in writing...no point in continuing unless something beside the primary is on the ballot. The primary is over.

7. I would have risked getting sick to vote, no question

 

I figured it's what Americans have fought and died for since its inception. I'm also young enough that I would in all likelihood survive the coronavirus.

But I don't know if I in good conscience could have told my 68-year-old dad with lung problems to go out and vote if he lived in Wisconsin. He lives in a swing state, but if this happened in November in his state I'm not sure whether I would encourage him to vote or beg him not to, and just the thought of that breaks my heart. I am going to make sure he applies for an absentee ballot as soon as the state starts accepting them for the general election.

12. I agree with you on this issue

 

I really don't like to see elections canceled or postponed. It sets a very bad president.

I hope Pelosi gets some concessions on vote by mail in return for the next stimulus package.
