It seems to me that another fundamental to our democracy is the fact that a person can lose an election. Buried in Trump’s claims of election fraud is the idea that he couldn’t lose so because he did it must be illegit. It’s like Putin going into his “elections’ knowing he will win, except at least this time in the United States Trump does not have Putin’s style measures in place to create no doubt about the outcome. In the Unitied States anyone running for office who thinks they cannot lose demonstrates their lack of knowledge or unwillingness to accept the very thing that makes America great! The very thing that makes Trump dangerous is that he sees himself as an autocrat, and such a person should never come close to holding the office.
