2020 election amidst a developing health concerns/emergency

Yes we have to go here.

Sadly.

.

Off the top of my head, i don't think in our lifetime anything like this has occurred. Especially coinciding with a national election.

.

We did not even properly prepare ourselves as a nation from the last two very recent wake up calls about a health concern exactly like this.

.

I was so positive that we would have learned and be better prepared right now. I was THAT optimistic in our government for whatever reason.

.

I mean in every social studies, history or government class i ever took in middle school or high school there were big banners above the chalkboard that read

"those who do not remember the past are doomed to repeat it"

I mean, it should be ingrained in our heads right?

.

So now, in an election year, where everything would already explosively and preposterously charged in partisan politics, I can't even image how badly our politicians and partisans will play this.

.

Finger pointing already?

Yep. Absolutely. It cant be helped. This ridiculous president and his administration have glowed in a brilliant spectacle of incompetence and shamelessly from the very beginning. A massive beacon of fail to warn or attract depending on your level of blindness.

.

Our pathetic republicans party, notoriously shameless as they are, and as shameless as we have allowed them to be, have already failed us by putting politics ahead of public safety. Our self proclaimed stable genious being the biggest offender of course.

.

Also, the biggest voting block is the one most affected. A mostly elderly voting block that tends to vote Republican. Will there be belief that they may stay home if the health concerns are not alleviated by election day and the elections postponed?

.

Politics is a mind-bending dark art. There is NOTHING that a politician will do that will surprise us anymore. Shamelessness has been normalized and is the accepted norm now.

.

And as much as I would like to think that nothing would shock and surprise me. Even as I am already bracing myself for something to go so off the wall and batshit that i think i am prepared for... even then, I'm sure there will be something even more batshit that will shock and surprise me.

.

Hopefully takes me aback and surprises in a good way.

Nope - mail in ballots are favored by seniors.

Nobody I know is excited about Biden. I predict Trump will win again. Hopefully that will give normal people another 4 years and the motivation to get rid of this dumb 2 party system.
