2000 Mules

 ... is Dinesh D'Souza's new movie which, as I understand it, claims the last presidential election was stolen. It shows videos of people visiting multiple vote drop boxes at odd hours, dropping off more votes than makes sense for any family. It shows their cell phone tracks going from non-profit offices to the drop boxes as well. The trailer is not available on YouTube because it took up the space needed for soft core porn. Or something like that.

Is it true that the election was stolen? Who knows?

All I know is that this sort of movie, whether it's conspiracy or fact, could not be made in a country with in-person voting and voter ID. It's not whether or not the movie is true, it's whether or not movies like this get made. Had Biden lost, I can't imagine that someone like Michael Moore wouldn't have made a movie exactly like it.

What on Earth are we doing with an election system that invariably leads to half the country thinking things are rigged and our leaders are frauds?

Voting is not the most important thing you can do and the president does not run the country. He manages the government and we run our own lives. What a waste of energy it is to have to wonder if elections are charades!
