It’s 2024. Trump Backers Won’t Certify the Election. What Next, Legally?
If the election results are certified, we will have a new President and Congress, and more or less the same old fight to keep the republic from getting to hell. As long as that isn’t a fight you want to get involved in, I’ll leave you with some thoughts for a future post.
I know a lot of people who feel the need to comment on every little election change or decision because, as they see things, it is a fight between good and evil, or, in some cases, between Republicans and Democrats.
