This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Possibly time for national separation. The Democrats are going to fraud the hell out of the swing states. Every time late results come in, it's in the Democrats' favor. It's magical.

Isn't it amazing how 138k votes magically appeared in Michigan, all for Biden? Guess their printer broke last night and they had to get a new shipment in from Beijing.

Our Chinese overlords can't have us plebs deciding we don't want communism...anyone who thinks Biden really got around half the popular vote is a fucking moron.

EDIT: Oh and NOW they call Michigan for Biden, when Trump was up substantially. The fix is in...goodbye USA, was nice knowing you. Anyone have any reasonable idea when Civil War II starts?

No one’s going to war over a nailbiter election determined by absentee ballots.  There’s no rallying cry, no proof of Casus Belli.  Everyone will hope the riots are over and go back to Netflix.

Will the war be when President Biden or Harris Exec Order our gun rights away?

Probably. Especially if (a) the EO immediately gets blitzed with a lawsuit, sending it to SCOTUS (whoops!), or (b) red states just smile and say 'Nah, suck our dicks'.

The Michigan thing is so insultingly blatant, I'm surprised the Dems went ahead with it. Also, it seems there are more votes cast in Wisconsin than registered voters.

No, that's nothing more than a conspiracy theory! It is totally true that 100% of the "mail in ballots" went to Biden. Also, don't Democrats get to vote twice? That would explain the Wisconsin thing. Gosh!

This shitshow is so embarrassing for America.  Tech leader of the world yet they can't get their act together to properly track and count votes.  Even fucking Canuckistan has figured this out.

The Chinese-supplied voting machines broke down. Also, they had to take a break because the truck with fake ballots broke down before it made its delivery.

Undeniably so. It is obvious to everyone. It should be equally obvious that this cheating will not stand, and will not dictate the election outcome. What is not obvious is the sequence of events that will deal with this cheating. For that, we will have to literally "wait and see".

Yup.  As I told a guy on Discord, "It just pisses me off that they're being so goddamn blatant about the cheat.  They don't care that we're catching them in the act, because they're so powerful."

What happened on 9/11/2001 started with the Y2K Election. Now, Agenda 21 starts with this 2020 election. It ENDS HERE, no matter which way the winds blow. It's officially over for us all!

On a side note, I heard from a source that Biden will be declaring victory between 1700 to 1740 today. Will be interesting to see the reactions from the media, protesters, and the politicos. I wonder if they will be talking about their "PLAYBOOK" or not, hm?

Well, it was nice getting to know everyone!

What’s the argument for cheating?  I haven’t seen any pundits claim that.

Both parties have had recent opportunity to pass through meaningful election reform with undivided control.

If the Democrats thought that Republicans were hugely cheating, they could have passed election reform legislation during Obama's first two years.

If the Republicans thought that Democrats were hugely cheating, they could have passed election reform legislation during Trump's first two years and/or launched investigations to prove the fraudulent votes in 2016.


Instead, it seems that the existing system is roughly balanced between Republicans and Democrats, and neither are pushing for any major reforms - at most minor tweaks. Rather than constantly bitching only about the other side, we should fix the system.
