We are watching the looting of our democracy. What is being done to stop it?
Where is the fightback? Where is the effort to control the narrative? Where is the public information campaign to inform the American people what Trump is doing? How many millions more people are going to become uncertain that Joe won fairly, while Trump rubbishes the integrity of the votes? Now Trump is meeting Michigan lawmakers to give them their orders? When are the Biden campaign/Democratic lawmakers going to at least try to set the record straight in the eyes of America? We cannot just assume that Trump is going nowhere with this coup attempt. He is damaging us in the meantime. He will burn America to the ground if he is left unchecked.

The Dems have now tried twice to overthrow the country.

What happens to revolutionaries who fail?

It was never a democracy...

3. So we should just sit back and watch it happen?

9. Nope, be ready to physically defend your country, because 70 million Americans are attacking it.

Having said that, what could "democrats" be doing, those in power, that they arent?

5. Those are all great questions.

It's almost as if Democrats can never quite find it in them to rise up together and let them know we're not gonna take it anymore. If the shoe was on the other foot the repubs would have run us out of the country by now.

16. nothing, because they have made zero progress in stealing the election

Trump's efforts are just a loud farce.

States are confirming totals, finding a few random explainable human errors (which is to be expected), and certifying results.

The electoral college will meet as scheduled, and Joe Biden will be sworn in on Jan 20th.

Trump has been ranting, raving, and filing lawsuits for two and a half weeks. He has accomplished nothing except wasting money and dividing his party. The system is functioning as it should, and we are methodically rolling towards Trump's last day in office, and there is absolutely nothing he can do about it.

I'm not sure if this poster really is an imbecile, totally clueless, or if no amount of media favoritism towards democrats is ever enough.

I think the looting of our democracy has been going on ever since certain people discovered that under the guise of democracy, they could bestow the public treasury on themselves.

Our side auditing the ballots will prove our case.

Your side says people shouldn't be allowed to talk about it.

Obligatory reminder: The US has never been a democracy. It is a republic.
