What's The Big Deal If President Postpones Election?

You are correct the constitution does not. But the law clearly does

In the United States, Election Day is the annual day set by law for the general elections of federal public officials. It is statutorily set as "the Tuesday next after the first Monday in the month of November" equalling "the first Tuesday after November 1".[1] The earliest possible date is November 2, and the latest possible date is November 8.

 

Clauses like, "General Welfare," Shall not be infringed," and "the right of the people peaceably to assemble" come to mind.

 

Seems like Democrat National Socialists, and their Coup Attempt #8, have already crossed the threshold.

FYI...you are wrong.

 

Be damned, you’re right: the Constitution does not define Election Day. 
 

however, article 2 section 1 gives Congress the sole authority to set Election Day. 
 

>The Congress may determine the Time of choosing the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States.<


which they have done: 2 U.S. Code § 7
 

>The Tuesday next after the 1st Monday in November, in every even numbered year, is established as the day for the election<

US Code sets the date for the election. The Constitution gives the Congress sole authority to set that date. 
 

The law also sets the date for the meeting of the Electoral College, AND sets the date on which the EC’s decision is to be certified by Congress. 
 

I don’t see where tRump has any wiggle room at all.

This is just a publicity stunt.

Sharks cannot stop swimming.

Trumps cannot tolerate not being in the news.

Demdopes will never understand how Trump plays them. No collusion. No obstruction. Russia Russia Russia. Postpone the election. The election will not be postponed. Trump will never let the dems up from their groveling. All it takes to agitate the mindless dems is a sliver of raw meat. Dems fight each other to find out who is more stupid. Here is a sliver of truth for clueless dems. Hillary Clinton and the DNC colluded with Russian spies to concoct a phony dossier that was used by traitors in the FBI to obtain FISA warrants. Indictments on the way.

Hillary was never called to a Grand Jury. Trump is a phony through and through

Trump's campaign seems to be in a death throe process. No convention where he can demonstrate his dogwhistle solos and his raise his dimwitted rabble with chants of Lock Her Up!, Oaths pledging loyalty to Trump, straightarm Third salutes, and telling how great this country is because cops can normally get away with murder.

Trump was selected by the EC, not elected by the people, with help from the Russians.

Trump is an incompetent corrupt blowhard with serious mental problems.

Trump won the election. There was no collusion by the Trump campaign, or anyone who had any connection with Trump, with the Russians. There was collusion by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC with the Russians. Here is just one of many facts. Nellie Orr is the wife of Bruce Orr. Nellie Orr worked for Fusion GPS. Bruce Orr worked for the FBI. Nellie Orr informed Bruce that the dossier was unverified and tied to Russian intelligence. Bruce Orr informed his superiors at the FBI. The FBI told the FISA judges that the info was verified. Rosenstein signed off on the application and then testified that he never read the application. Obama knew and approved. Indictments coming. Obama oversaw the most corrupt administration in the history of the USA.

There has been a lot of talk about President Trump possibly postponing the election.  The fact is, his tweet in this regard was nothing more than a jab at Covid-ninnies who are proclaiming that live school classes must be postponed.  Trump simply dished it back out to these Covid-ninnies in typical Trump fashion.

 

But, even if Donald Trump was serious about postponing the election to say December 1, 2020, I don't see any problem with this.  The inauguration of the elected President does not take place until January 20, 2021.  That still gives whoever is elected about 50 days to get ready to take the office, if it is not Trump.  There is no Constitutional violation here.  Trump would not be serving more than the allotted time.  In fact, he could theoretically and lawfully postpone the election to just days before inauguration.

 

Seems to me like Covid-ninnie Democrats are getting their panties sweaty and stained for nothing.

As Durham brings forth indictments of Biden voters, who are part of the largest hoax in USA history, dims will again refer to the the Mueller reports finding of nothing. hahahahaaa. You will read endless quotes of this part of the report and that part of the report that all amount to nothing. No collusion. No obstruction. Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, stood on a platform with Barr and agreed that there was NO collusion, NO obstruction. Dims will never give up on Russia Russia when their own candidate and the DNC colluded with Russian agents to obtain phony dirt on Trump. A cabal of high ranking gov. officials conspired to coverup the crimes of Hillary Clinton, fix the election for Hillary Clinton, and when that failed frame Trump. Durham is going to indict some of these Biden voters and they will be convicted. Obama knew and approved. My only hope is the dirtbag Rosenstein will be indicted.

It would be okay with me if they move it FORWARD.  

Inauguration should coincide with the Thanksgiving Day Parades.

I agree up to two weeks before inauguration to give time for recounts. The only reason it should be postponed is to make time for increased numbers of absentee ballots.  I think a request for an absentee ballot due a persons fear of catching covid 19 is reasonable.  Everyone else can vote in person.

 

Mass distribution of mail-in ballots is reckless.  It's akin to putting a cup of coffee half-off the edge of a table and citing the fact that it hasn't fallen to justify it as a "good idea" when we all know it's much safer from falling when placed near the center of the table; "oh for the inconvenience of having to reach a little further for your cup of joe".  Near the center of the table at least any spills can be contained, rather than spilling the coffee and breaking the system as it crashes to the floor due to traitors placing it at the edge of the table.  I will go as far to say that mass distribution of mail-in IS an invitation by the Democrats for the Russians or any other foreign or domestic entity to print and send in counterfeit ballots.

You're partially correct, for a change. He did it to keep the issue front and center so you idiots have to explain how it's ok to protest but not go to a voting booth.
