Today is the long awaited and foretold day when the mighty GOP smites the evil DEMONcrat regime and sets things right again in America. I would not be surprised if the “red wave” does indeed manifest but on the other hand I wouldn’t be surprised either to see the old “4 AM switcheroo” again when Republican leads disappear overnight.
Either way, the bigger issue is that no matter who wins, the other side is going to claim the election was stolen. Hell, the Dems are already declaring that Orange Man is going to steal the 2024 election. In short, the only “legitimate” election will be an election where your side wins and any time the other side wins, it is illegitimate and stolen.
That is a hell of a way to run a “democracy”.
We have had questionable elections before but never one where it was already predetermined that a loss = stolen across the entire electorate. The quaint tradition of casting your vote and then either celebrating a win or glumly accepting a loss is gone. It will be interesting to see what happens either way. Should the red wave come to pass, I think Creepy Joe Biden’s days may be numbered.
Also of note, for the first time in 32 years of being eligible to vote I am planning on sitting this one out. I gave up trusting the system a long time ago and I simply refuse to place my stamp of approval on the process by participating in a farce. That doesn’t mean I won’t watch the election results, I definitely will, but as an outside observer.
Let the games begin.
