If the democrats win the senate, it will happen (looks like they almost certainly won?t win the senate).

I don't know about "almost certainly". They're not the favourites but could still go either way.

It would be a shame if the GOP undermining of the electoral process make some of their voters feel like thier votes don't matter because of fraud and cause them not to bother voting.

This is most certainly bilking money from his base to support the legal proceedings while skimming off at least half for himself (like a televangelist).

Seems perfectly in line with how Trump has conducted business his entire life.

I've always believed that most of Trump's behaviour has been theatre.

I really don't understand why reporters are letting people be unnamed in these stories. It doesn't really matter why Trump is dragging this out, the fact is that by putting up the facade he is he's hurting the Biden administration's ability to do pretty basic stuff. Like the fact that they're not getting intelligence briefings is ridiculous.

What way does the Canadian healthcare system work?

I think the primary difference between the Canadian system and the NHS is that while single-payer healthcare is a federal mandate, owing to the separation of powers outlined in Canada's federation, health care is administered by the Provinces. So we don't have a national insurance program but rather a provincial one. So it's regional but there are certain mechanisms in place to try and ensure a continuous level of service regardless of whether you're in a wealthier province or not and all of our provincial plans have reciprocal arrangements to cover us if we're travelling within the country.

On a larger scale it is a public health system with some private services available at the margins and, as of yet, without a national pharmacare plan. Like I think you're experiencing over there there does tend to be a movement by people on the right to allow more for-profit stuff to creep in.

Meanwhile, the country burns as coronavirus rages completely out of control.

If only we only had a real adult in charge, instead of an obese orange toddler. Instead of delaying the transition he could be encouraging his followers to take covid seriously, follow health recommendations, stop the spread and save hospitals from being overwhelmed.

Assuming Biden takes office in Jan, what a mess he will be walking into. No leadership from the top for 2 months during a raging, accelerating pandemic...what could go wrong.

The negative effects of this presidency will echo in this country for generations.

Gee I wonder why the Republicans are always accusing others of voter fraud.

Sounds like a system that could work in the USA... if it weren't so communist  ;D

It?s really not even the socialism part of it they have a problem with.  Republicans have had no problem with social handouts for incompetently run Deep South states or corporate welfare.   They just hate the idea of money going to ethnicities and groups they don?t like.   America is built on a large pile of hatred and discrimination and they get off on it.

When will these dipshits learn that it?s not about them wearing the mask it?s as much about catching as it is about spreading.

God that country is full of morons. Why aren?t seatbelts oppressive? Or no smoking areas? How about helmets for motorcycles or bikes?

Just so stupid.
