So the obvious fraud is fine, but PROTESTING that fraud is “an assault on Democracy”? You’re going to a very warm place John Jenkins, and I don’t mean Florida.

The ‘fraud’ is ‘obvious’ only to the lunatic fringe that believes every lie Trump tells them. There were many, many chances to present evidence in courts of law and no credible evidence was every shown. Only wild unfounded accusations made on social media and in fake ‘hearings’ held in hotel conference rooms where the rules of law, evidence, and perjury did not apply. Narcissistic Trump has clearly been manipulating people just to try and keep power — try and think rationally instead of blindly believing his propaganda.

Please, my Voice of Reason, do tell when they had a chance to present in court? The only court activity I remember seeing was judge’s dismissing cases before evidence was even presented on made up things like “standing” or “harm”. The few narrow cases I saw where evidence was actually heard seemed to go very well.

It’s ironic that someone who mindlessly parrots the MSM lies is accusing people who have been paying attention of blindly believing propaganda.

Who really cares what you have to say! Your collage is anything but a Christian Collage. Very liberal and go against Gods word on many things. And NEVER heard a word when the other side was doing the same and worst things.

I am with the previous writers and have felt the same way back to 1968 when Barry Goldwater lost an election because {Maybe} the same dem’s running an ad in the political rank to dem’s benefit that if Mr. Goldwater was elected he would drop an atomic bomb. But now the Republicans are the bad group, some of us remember the old days. It has not changed, the dem’s will do, or say, accuse anything to win. Period.
