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?

"When things are not called by their right names, what is said cannot make sense. When what is said does not make sense, what is planned cannot succeed. When plans do not succeed, people become uneasy. When people are uneasy, punishments do not fit crimes. When punishments do not fit crimes, people cannot know where to put hand or foot."
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
