    due to state's rights requires an constitutional amendment to make something that cant just be changed when the state gov changes

    and good luck on getting the GOP to do something they have said for YEARS would cost them elections
    "Law and Order", lots of places have had that, Russia, North Korea, Saddam's Iraq.
    Laws can be made to enforce order of cruelty and brutality.

    If this would be 1k margin across the battleground states, then there would be a fair shot. 20k+? Not going to happen.

    Kavanaugh embraced a legal theory that could let Republican-controlled state legislatures override results certified by Democratic officials. That argument, developed by three conservative justices in the 2000 Bush v. Gore case, says the Supreme Court should intervene in a presidential election dispute even when a state court is interpreting its own laws.

    Citing that opinion, Kavanaugh pointed to a constitutional provision that says state legislatures get to determine how electors are appointed to the Electoral College, the body that formally selects the U.S. president.

    “The text of the Constitution requires federal courts to ensure that state courts do not rewrite state election laws,” Kavanaugh wrote. He was one of three current justices, including Roberts and Barrett, who worked as lawyers for Republican George W. Bush in the 2000 election fight.

    Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Michigan all have Republican-controlled legislatures and Democratic governors, creating the possibility those states could send dueling slates of electors to the Electoral College in the event of a disputed election.


    Straight up point blank. Kavanaugh clearly says federal courts can and WILL override state courts and state law and permit state legislators to send the GOP set of electors regardless of the count.
    Damn, so people are already spreading fake news?

    PA was already given the judicial pass. SCOTUS can't and won't override state elections unless the state forgot its own laws, which none of them did.

    This is why Guiliani is up there right now parading a slew of poll watchers telling tales of the corruption. The GOP is building a case to have the GOP set of electors sent.

    i always think not having automatic voter registration is one of the most unamerican things about america.

    The current vote count in PA doesn't included any votes which arrived after the election, but post marked before it. Those were the ones he was wanting thrown out and even without them Biden still carried the state. And with it being a 0.5% or higher margin, no automatic recount is triggered.

    Look, buddy. If Trump would win, it would be better for me, so let's say I have vested interest in him actually winning. But all this noise and crap with little actual evidence to go with? What do you think Supreme Court is some bunch of jokesters? Conspiracy theories and crap are good for Twitter, but they don't fly with actual judges.

    What I expect is that he might claw back some votes here and there, but it is obvious that the margins are simply not there. So yes, Biden is the next president and better shrug and move on instead of making a joke of yourself.

    Nevada was called for Biden. Worst case scenario, he wins by 279

    I hope that it would be possible to at least begin to make some progress on those issues with Biden and hopefully more even senate.

    Court would need a tad more than bunch of randos saying random shit. It's not MMO-C there.

    the margins really weren't close anyway for the electorate so even if Trump does succeed in. and having the supreme Court review one state he's still going to have to win many others. biden got it he got the electoral vote. this is the gop's metaphorical come to Jesus moment Trump is gone now they need to work on their stuff.

    Die, do you know how also uses the Supreme Court to win elections?

    Nicolas Maduro. It's great, that at the end, Trumpists are the same as the pro-Maduro.
