The early word is that there seem to be a ton of irregularities already in Pennsylvania, the Keystone state that might be the key to this election. This isn't like any of the elections I have voted in since my first Presidential election in 1992. What we saw in 2000 and 2016 when the Left refused to accept the results will be on steroids tonight if it looks like Trump is going to win. The media has mostly announced that if Biden is winning, they will declare a winner but if Trump is winning they won't.
There is a pretty decent chance of violence as the night wears on. If antifa is going to do something, tonight is the night. Will we see bodies on the lawn of the White House? Quite possibly. If Trump wins but the "popular vote" is wildly against him, will there be an open insurrection in the government? There has been talk of just that happening.
On the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised to see Biden carry the whole east coast by big margins, win Pennsvlvania bigly and Florida narrowly and the whole thing be over by 10 PM. Probably not but it could happen. Hell, nothing would surprise me other than Trump carrying New York and California.
Whatever happens, two things are apparent.
First, we never should have gotten to the place where the election of a President is this critically important. We shouldn't have a President, of either party, who is the central focus of everything every day. The government is too large and too powerful so the head of the government is as well. It's time to Make The President Unimportant Again.
Second, maybe this will finally be the impetus to start talking seriously about dissolving the Union and going our separate ways. We obviously can't live together anymore. Half of us hate the other half and that other half (my half) is starting to hate right back. It is time to divide up the nation, have an amicable divorce and start to see other people.
It is a beautiful day here in Indiana, fairly warm with bright blue skies and plenty of sunshine but dark clouds are on the political horizon even if they aren't in the sky.
