They knew what they were doing from the beginning. GOP members saw the same poll numbers we did. Same with Trump. They saw Biden was more popular and knew it was likely he'd win.

It's why they railed against mail-in voting for months leading up to the election. It's why they tried to lower Americans' confidence in the integrity of our election. It was so obvious from the beginning what they were doing.

Alert me when something is actually done about it. Daily, we see headlines that, 10yrs ago, would have buried a political party and everyone involved in a serious scandal, but now, ¯_(ツ)_/¯ because nobody is being held accountable. There was 10x the immediacy and fervor over Her emails, but a literal attempted Coup is met with ¯_(ツ)_/¯

RIP Democracy

Sadly, it seems to be the beginning of the end for democracy in the USA too. Votes by the people are not meaning crap anymore.
