Now that Biden has won the presidency, the Republicans will start up their complaint machine about why he is such a lousy president by pointing out what’s wrong with the country and hanging these deficiencies onto Biden.  Here are my predictions in order of perceived conservative importance, please add yours.

1. The federal debt - it was not an election issue, and it is reportedly at the highest level ever, and I won’t go into why, but the conservatives will dust it off like it is the only issue that matters.
2. Taxes - still too high, always have been, always will be, and all because of Biden.
3. Guns - Biden is taking them
4. Illegal immigration - how come they are still here?  Because Biden opened the borders and gave them free food, housing, and medical care.
5. Build the wall!
6. Cut social programs - too many minorities getting too much free stuff and living like kings
7. Abortion - they have the Supreme Court on their side to overturn Roe v. Wade
8. Trump was robbed! - how dare anyone not vote for the Republicans!
9. Democrats hate the military
10. We’re losing to China because of Democrats!
11. Putin for president!
12. Benghazi!!!
13. I still ain’t wearing a mask

McConnell will also say that Dem’s are trying to politicize the courts… and because of that, he cannot with good conscious allow any judicial nominees through.

SOCIALISM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cultural marxism and critical theory gone ape-sh!t.
People being polite to one another(even without open-carry fire-arms present).
Wide-spread examples of scientific, medically sound tactics and strategies for curbing the pandemic being respected and followed.
Social programs that help people (regardless of heritage, gender, sexuality).
Societal health measured as a complex whole instead of just carving off the Dow/TSX/Tokyo market respiration and thinking that’s the whole picture.
Cats living with dogs.
Mass hysteria!

14. Biden will give Iran millions of U.S. dollars and allow them - no, encourage them - to build nukes and engage in terrorism.
15. Our toilets must flush 15 times and our showerheads don’t provide enough water.
16. All those out of control windmills are killing more birds and causing more cancer than ever.
17. Jill Biden is really a man.
18. Crime is rampant and out of control in key democrat-run (read ‘minority’) cities, like Detroit, Baltimore, and New York.
19. Obamacare/Bidencare is ruining the country.
20. A rise in gas prices will be all Biden’s fault. A decrease in prices will have nothing to do with Biden.
21. A small/modest corporate tax increase will severely punish businesses, hurt the GDP, inflict untold misery on millionaires and billionaires, and perhaps usher in the apocalypse.
22. Religious institutions and Christians will be persecuted. The War on Christmas will be escalated.
23. George Soros.
24. Athletes will disrespect our military more than ever.
25. Any use of a teleprompter by Biden will be seen as some sort of failing/weakness.
26. Although we will continue to give Israel billions of dollars and military support, Biden will be accused of being an enemy to Israel.
27. Kids will be forced to denounce God in public schools. Morals will completely evaporate. Satan will be lionized.
28. Our kids will be taught actual American history, rather than a sanitized version with only the good. How dare they teach facts in schools!!!
29. Watch for an explosion of “Karens” - numerous entitled white conservative women will find much to complain about in Biden’s America.
30. We are on the verge of being Venezuela.
31. Republicans will now revert back to the out-of-the-workforce statistic as a measure of economic success and ignore any drop in the BLS unemployment rate.
32. Hunter Biden. Nepotism. Something nefarious. Somewhere.

What I find ironic about 20 is that the most likely cause for gas prices to go up would be a booming (global) economy.

This is becoming the #1 issue with Republicans as Trump has not given up the fight that the election was rigged and few, if any, Republicans are standing up to Trump’s claims.  I fear election fraud and the consequent loss of faith in elections has become the top issue.  This is a dangerous path the Republicans have taken, but it will work in their favor since they are the party of authoritarians and private power.  One of the Republican mantras is that government is evil and must be minimized, and this mantra is spread by discrediting the government (usually when one loses), so if top government officials say that the people’s most significant voice is a scam, then the people are on the path to lose that voice.  If the people stop voting, then the Republicans win, and not just at the polls.

My point was meant to suggest that more people voting (using the relative convenience of mail-in-voting) might bring in more Dem votes, making all the past gerrymandering, intimidation and disenfranchisement efforts of the GOP fruitless.

Tough to make the closing of poling stations and voting places in unfavourable locations (McConnel, I’m looking at you) effective when those folks can just USPS their ballots from the comfort of their neighborhood mailbox.
