If we can move the Election back, we can also move it up to tomorrow, to save lives.
The giant and most clever internet companies can figure out how to uniquely vote over the web in a matter of days. Their data sets know everything about us. They know our age qualification, our citizenship qualification, and our residency qualification. As long as we are bypassing the date in the Constitution, we can also switch to a popular vote Presidency election.
Clearly, delaying Election Day till Trump solves the Coronavirus problem is betting on a lame horse. By forcing early re-opening, Trump has doubled the number of deaths until the end of his term, with no end in sight for at least a year until vaccines are widely distributed and accepted. That would triple the number of present deaths. These are just linear extrapolations of the IHME Coronavirus model, done two posts ago. Dumping Trump immediately would be the most important step in fighting the Coronavirus.
I note the Election Date change idea occurred just after Trump talked to Putin, the world’s expert at fixing his own lifelong terms and locking up opponents. Trump’s previous Dynasty and lifelong Presidential dreams occurred after he talked to Chinese President Xi Jinping, who has made himself President for Life, without any sanctions by Trump.
Sure this is an extremely imaginary scenario, by a comic author. But it isn’t as far out as Trump’s reliance on a Witch Doctor for a cure.
