Response to Chin music (Reply #11)

12. Imagine that you are the Governor of CA.

You control your stateís elections. The President canít stop you, so you will hold your election, no matter what the lunatic in the White House says. You will certify your electoral votes, and they will then vote in the electoral college (for Biden, presumably).

Now, imagine that you are the Governor of TX. Your party leader, the lunatic in the White House, has told you that you should not hold an election. He has no power to stop you from holding an election, but, for whatever reason, thatís clearly what he wants. For your part, you know that your state will have NO SAY in selecting the next President if you donít hold an election. Even worse, your state will have NO MEMBERS in the House of Representatives if you donít hold an election. Youíll also lose one Senate seat. What will you do? You will hold an election, no matter what the lunatic in the White House says.

The idea that there will be no November 2020 election is absurd. The election will happen. Nobody has the power to stop it. Our Constitution actually works fairly well.
