Bill Maher – How in holy hell do we stop this avalanche? It’s as if we have already conceded defeat. Where is the Democrat’s backbone? Republican politicians have abdicated love of country for opportunistic re-election votes. Trust me the mob will rule if Trump is re-elected. Write your congressmen! Vote!
Maher said Republican dominated state legislatures are overriding election laws to ensure they get to chose who will ultimately win, regardless of the ballot counts. Unless the Dems get a federal Voting Rights Act passed, the avalanche will be upon our doorstep. This IS the exact method & using the same playbook as every authoritarian ruler that has come to power.
