    What is the big deal of doing recounts sp hundreds pf million of people will still believe in elections at all?
    Why does some people fight so recounts wouldn’t be done?
    That’s the big question here, not Trump.

    Some states, with results that are within their legal thresholds, will conduct recounts. I think the argument should be, does the president’s spurious lawsuits alleging voter fraud and false (and provocative) comments further the success of the nation. Or does it stymie a transition party’s need to ready for governance during a time of multiple crises in the nation (Covid 19, the economy, and the threat of foreign power taking advantage of a weakened power transfer). To my mind, P. Trump should poop or get off the pot. His actions are causing violence between the citizens, retarding the progress of managing the pandemic and finally offering doubt into the fundamental functions of our democracy. All the legal votes should be counted, law suits (with legal merit) should be brought swiftly to action, and the transfer process, even if the projected winner is to be reversed, should begin immediately in the event that the incumbent remains in power.

    We allowed Al Gore a month to prove his case. Allow D Trump the same option. Then transfer.
