Other than a feelgood rush, so what? The official date for the ‘24 elections is November 5, though Election Day has become a nugget surrounded by gobs of ballot-stuffing and electronic hijinks. November 5 is now less than a year hence. Whatever the polls report today won’t necessarily reflect outcomes then, even if they’re honestly tallied.
Let’s venture that next year’s elections are held (yes, you read that right). The results, either way, will inevitably be disputed -- and not civilly, not if Democrats manage to lose. Between Trump derangement syndrome and an unending hunger for power and money, Democrats simply can’t lose to Trump and not go bonkers.
Suspending elections sounds like something out of a beach read. Maybe so. Never happened in the good old U.S. of A., you say. Check. But the world and country are headed for oversized calamities, they’re on our doorsteps now. Saying next year’s presidential contest is critical has become cliché.
The world is spinning out of control. Look no further than Ukraine, where the possibility of a wider war developing is real, though D.C. lifers are backing off some. Ukrainians have lost the war. The elites shiny new toy is the Middle East.
The Israeli-Hamas war is in full swing. U.S. Navy warships are parked off Lebanon. Turkey’s Erdo?an, Iran’s mullahs, and Hezb’allah have made noises about Hamas’ fate. Israel has a right -- indeed, a duty -- to strike Hamas in Gaza. Yet, it’s thinkable that this fight could trigger a regional war, with the U.S. embroiled.
No need to inventory the multiplying troubles here at home. You know them. They stem from dreadful policies and misgovernance compliments of Biden’s handlers. Compounding woes, the miserable governance by Democrats of blue states and localities. Mass misery in less than three years.
Oh, and vast right-wing conspiracies bubble and brew, say Democrats. Trump poses an existential threat to democracy.
Joe Biden’s good friend, autocrat Volodymyr Zelenskyy, has suspended elections in Ukraine, because no elections make democracy stronger. In Biden’s borderless America, why shouldn’t Joe’s handlers copy Volod?
Okay, Vegas odds are north of 50-50 that elections occur next year. But Hillary Clinton has sort of hinted that maybe the presidential contest needs to be scrubbed. We’ll get to that in a sec.
If there’s a presidential election, the betting odds are that the outcome fails to legitimize the winner. Here’s why.
