Effete, winning the presidency takes 2 steps, winning the EC vote and your opponent conceding the contest.
For Biden to win, ------- will have to concede.
------- will never, ever, ever, concede, under any circumstances, wouldn't you agree?
So, how does Biden win the EC votes?
Well there is the honest counting option, which I think we all agree is the best and most appropriate option. But this is a HIGHLY unlikely option.
But, think about it for a second. We are looking at Florida 2000 on steroids. And how many states will be in play? How many counts will be going on under the 24 hour watchful eye of CNN and Fox and MSNBC and all the rest? All the time ------- will be screaming FRAUD! Every hanging chad will become evidence of widespread voter fraud! Republicans (and democrats) will be watching the counting, watching every single vote being analyzed, scrutinized and debated. (the point being from the Republican perspective, will be to draw out the count).
How much pressure will the counters be under?!? Every single vote that has the slightest problem will become a national scandal of epic proportions, you know it and I know it. Republicans will be finding and creating voter fraud everywhere, you know it and I know it. It is like it has already happened.
And look at the battleground states! Who are the governors? Who controls the legislatures? How do you think they will effect the count? You think they will be honest brokers? You think, for a second, that republican governors and legislatures will appoint electors for Biden when the vote count is either disputed or still being counted? If you think so I have some Florida real estate you will love.
You think the courts can handle a contest of this magnitude? Pshaw! Think about, 10, 20, 30 lawsuits in 5 or 10 battle ground states, marching through the federal courts, all with conflicting legal issues (i.e. count these votes and not those votes in this jurisdiction, count those and not these in that jurisdiction)-and here is the important part. There is a mid-december hard deadline for all this to be resolved. Impossible in our system.
So, the lawsuits won't be resolved adequately, so republican governors and republican legislatures in 8 (i think) battleground states will have to chose which votes to use for the electoral votes.
If you think that is a winning strategy for Biden, well, I'm sorry.
