Election, Phase 1

 Here's a map showing the outcome of the election as of 7 AM Nov 4. If you don't like it, keep in mind there are several others out there with different results.

So far, so good, BUT:

Back in 1960, the contest between Kennedy and Nixon came down to who might claim Illinois. Nixon handily carried the southern part of the state, and Kennedy was favored in the Chicago area. As the results came in with more and more of the rural districts going for Nixon, Mayor Daily (remember him?) kept delaying reporting the results from Cook County, telling us that the size and complexity of the area made counting difficult. Eventually the rest of the state finishes counting and certified their results, at which point Dailys people began finding boxes of ballots in the trunks of abandoned cars scattered around Chicago. Amazingly (!) they produced enough Kennedy votes to swing the state, and thus the presidency, to the Democrats. No one was fooled by this and Nixon was encouraged to contest the results, but being a perfect gentleman, he declined, and the rest is history.

Fast forward 80 years, and here's the same thing only scattered all across the country using boxes of absentee/mail-in ballots instead of abandoned Cadillacs. The technology has advanced to make the process slightly less obviously suspect, but nothing has actually changes and in a couple of states the process for verifying ballots has been effectively done away with so all the crooks need to do is fill out enough ballots to swing the result, and truck them over to the counting sites. Voila! Electoral victory!

Meantime, I suppose, that process will be masked by rioting Antifa and BLMs to draw attention away from the obvious frauds being perpetrated in the back rooms. I do wish the country the best of luck. We're going to need it.
