With all due respect to the political Batman and Robin, all the partnering and scheming in the world will not stop trump's big mo.
Sorry folks, there are just too many clueless people in America. Every angry white man in America will be pulling the lever for trump, and those who are not already registered are breaking their necks to get on the voter rolls.
The two leading candidates are already looking around for a running mate.
Hillary is thinking male Latino, and trump is thinking, woman. Any woman.
Finally, speaking of elections, shout out to the governor of Virginia for restoring the voting rights of over 200,000 felons.
"Gov. Terry McAuliffe will allow more than 200,000 ex-cons in Virginia to register to vote in the upcoming presidential election, one of the biggest actions taken by a state to instantly restore voting rights.
The change applies to all felons who have completed their sentences and been released from supervised probation or parole. The Democratic governor’s decision particularly affects black residents of Virginia: 1 in 4 African Americans in the state has been permanently banned from voting because of laws restricting the rights of those with convictions.
“Once you have served your time and you’ve finished up your supervised parole. . .I want you back as a full citizen of the commonwealth,” McAuliffe said. “I want you to have a job. I want you paying taxes, and you can’t be a second-class citizen.” [Source]
That's a beautiful thing. True democracy in action.
Contrast that to the federal Judge in North Carolina who upheld the voting rules laws in that state which makes it harder for citizens to vote.
"The opinion, by Judge Thomas D. Schroeder of Federal District Court in Winston-Salem, upheld the repeal of a provision that allowed people to register and vote on the same day. It also upheld a seven-day reduction in the early-voting period; the end of preregistration, which allowed some people to sign up before their 18th birthdays; and the repeal of a provision that allowed for the counting of ballots cast outside voters’ home precinct.
It also left intact North Carolina’s voter identification requirement, which legislators softened last year to permit residents to cast ballots, even if they lack the required documentation, if they submit affidavits.
The ruling could have significant repercussions in North Carolina, a state that Barack Obama barely won in 2008, and that the Republican Mitt Romney barely won four years later.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, which sits in Richmond, Va., will be the first to consider an appeal, which the law’s opponents said they would pursue." [Source]
Stay vigilant and engaged people. There are a lot of things going on in this country which you need to be know about.
I am watching Donald trump's victory speech now, and he is telling his supporters that he will bring back jobs and make America great again, and blah blah blah.
Hillary's speech will be next.
Buckle up people.
