Watch for efforts to suppress votes

To say that the November 2020 presidential election is important is perhaps the greatest understatement in U.S. political history. It is not hyperbole or hysteria to state that the fate of the species and the planet may very well hinge on the outcome of this election.

With that said I’ll stand on top of the highest mountain peak screaming into the world’s most powerful bullhorn that every U.S. citizen needs to watch for epic and historically unrivaled voter fraud. The Republican Party and power brokers are cognizant and know beyond any reasonable doubt that they cannot possibly win with our current psychopathic commander in chief. The ethically and morally impoverished Republican party is planning a campaign of systematic voter repression, voter list scrubbing, and voter fraud the likes of which no civilized nation has ever endured.

We the people need to read and heed the exceptional exposes on this that have been written by the award-winning investigative reported Greg Palast. Law-abiding Americans need to sound the alarm on what will and could go down as the greatest and most damning case of election fraud in U.S. if not world history. People cannot afford to underestimate the mental state of Donald Trump. Trump’s personal history confirms that he will not admit defeat and will resort to virtually any tactic to achieve the end he covets.

Given this and given the stakes of enduring 4 more years at the mercy of a narcissist sociopath each and every one of us have to be the advocates and yes guardians of a free and fair presidential election. We cannot afford to be complacent or indifferent; the situation demands our finest efforts.

FILE - In this undated photo, provided by NY Governor's Press Office on Saturday March 27, 2021, is the new "Excelsior Pass" app, a digital pass that people can download to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test. Vaccine passports being developed to verify COVID-19 immunization status and allow inoculated people to more freely travel, shop and dine have become the latest flash point in America’s perpetual political wars, with Republicans portraying them as a heavy-handed intrusion into personal freedom and private health choices.
