@InternetKevin I didn't followed the latest developments but I fear Twitter/Facebook moves are only serving the GOP/Alt-Right interest, they are weaponizing the situation to their interest, that's very clear.
Meanwhile Democrats are voting en masse, that's good, but will it be enough?
I think the situation is much rotten that unless a bluewave, really out of the ordinary, something so powerful that would leave Trump speechless and his base completely in dismay, I'm not sure how Trump will not use every possible little things to supposedly prove the election was rigged to his disadvantage
@rmdes There is the whole disputing the election result thing. Is that really the GOP strategy?!?
That sounds pretty nuts to me. I mean there are some countries where stuff like that happens, but the USA is a superpower.
It doesn't make sense. But to me Trump 2020 seems like more of an early excuses campaign than an actual re-election campaign. I mean I haven't seen anything to appeal to swing voters.
Have I missed something?
@InternetKevin the good people like @TonyStark at https://resistance.social are doing everything they can to sensibilise swing voters but the situation is also different from 2016, much of the swings aren't here or on Twitter, if they exist they are on discord, parler, gab, Facebook, where the Cons are the most busy.
Instagram is pretty much owned by the blue wave.
Never underestimate the GOP's desire to depress and suppress the vote.
They have no really popular public policy. That's how they win and that's one of many reasons why people need to show up and vote if they care about stopping this creeping if not already completely functional authoritarian, autocratic, crony corporatism we're living in.
@TonyStark @rmdes There is a new Vox series on this subject https://www.vox.com/21431320/whose-vote-counts-explained-netflix
@TonyStark @rmdes I know that you aren't a fan of The Intercept, Tony, but there's a new series from Jeremy Scahill on the Trump presidency that explains who he is and how it happened. I thought it worked much better than the news stories that tend to be incremental. This is a big picture portrait.
