Trump is laughing at Democratic panic

Why are we and the media panicking over him? He's laughing at how much fear is he causing us! We need to quit freaking out over what he will or won't do!! He's loving every minute of it. He's saying crazy shit which is causing the media to freak out and then twitter verse and DU freaks out. It's unbelievable how gullible some are. He's doing this to depress the vote. It's as plain as day. I already see posts talking about how Trump's going to steal and there's nothing we can do!

Yes, we should be concerned and prepare, but not public freak out I'm seeing all over the place.

What's up with Drudge?

His website is actually readable nowadays. He's turned on Trump. His website is nothing like it was under Obama. He highlights negative Trump stories all the time. He's turned into Raw Story.

Can Dems just pass a law requiring a 2/3 majority to pass court packing

in the future? So we take control of govt in 2021 and pass judicial reform creating more seats in the federal judiciary and the Supreme Court. Can't the Dems also put in law stating that any future changes to the numbers of seats on the SC and judiciary will require a 2/3 majority of the House and Senate? One of the biggest arguments against court packing is that if Republicans take charge they will just expand it to 21 seats or whatever. Well that would effectively make it impossible.

The South Carolina legislature did just that on the confederate flag flying in the statehouse. They passed a law stating that the flag could never be lowered unless 2/3 majority of the state assembly voted to take it down.

Yes, it's a craven power grab and goes against all tradition, but why not? It would totally be legal.

We have no choice but to add US states in 2021!

Welcome DC, PR, and the Pacific territories of Guam, Northern Marianas, and American Samoa to the United States.

The Pacific territories should become united as a single state. This would add 6 senators. This is the only way to save our democracy. Of course removing the filibuster should be first, but we can't survive as a country with 51 senators knowing a single heart attack can change the makeup of the country. We can't deal with this.

Then we can feel comfortable passing laws knowing that it'll be hard for Republicans to pay us back as regaining control would be a mountain for them for years to come.

A 6-3 Court will invalidate EVERYTHING Biden signs into law

And I mean EVERYTHING. There will be no law that Biden signs that some nut wing will take to a court and say it validates their constitutional freedoms. I think even a minimum wage will be struck down. Everything will be freedom of religion, civil liberties, etc. The ONLY remedy we have it to expand the court.

Of course, this is assuming Trump's replacement gets a vote. The only way the Court doesn't expand is if Biden gets to choose her replacement, otherwise, we're in big shit even if Biden wins.

Former Sen. Claire McCaskill predicts a Biden blowout

I actually believe that Joe Biden will end up somewhere in the neighborhood of 350 electoral votes. I think hell win Florida. I think Joe Biden will win Ohio. And I think hell win Arizona.

Will Joe Biden make a deal with Trump after the election?

Trump sees everything as a transaction or quid pro quo. I predict Biden will beat Trump. Trump knows it's over, but will try to extract a deal out of Biden. He'll say that he'll concede and go away peacefully in the night if he promises not to prosecute him or his family. No lawsuits or contesting the results. Now I'm assuming all this will be very private. Nothing public.

You think Joe will bite? My thinking is that he should take the deal and quickly arrest him once he takes over.
