The savaging of Stein, without acknowledging the unconstitutional and extra-legal activities of extremist groups supporting the Republican Party, is certainly " a tell " about how morally elastic our legal system is. We cannot say, with any certainty, that Stein cost Hillary Clinton the 3-4 states being contested without examining and verifying that all votes are treated equally.This includes provincial ballots, undervotes and absentee ballots, etc. Also, voter intent, btw. The anomalies simply cannot be explained away by the likes of 538 or dickheads at Slate Magazine, either. Political axe-grinding or pencil-neck number crunching doesn't have a place when considering who sits in the Oval Office or Congress, as well. The system of elections and vote counting in the U.S. is broken, and subject to partisan monkey wrenching, just like our political economy. The 99s, and their sympathizers in minority communities, should not merely fade into the sweet night, here. They should join Dr. Stein and the millions who are with her on this quest , And, fight for complete transperancy and reliably accurate elections. With an openly crypto-racist Attorney General, and a businessman who's family has already been convicted of discrimination regarding housing and employment, their lives may truly depend on voting, legal protestations and other constitutional protections. Count the votes!
The silence of most politicians on this issue, is also a tell, here. The deal-cutting has already begun in the halls and behind closed doors in the U.S. Congress. The lobbyists " who shall not be named " and the front groups who gave $ billions to the two UniParty candidates in the debacle of Election 2016 are not anyone friends when it comes to voting or fair and accurate elections. Thinking of them as hoodwinkers and bamboozlers is always the safer course.
