Which politicas party is really responsible for having an election in the middle of a pandemic?

The Chicago Tribune article titled, Pritzker, Top Dems back mail in voting, reports the pros and cons of mail in voting. Each party is blaming each other for the decision to not delay the vote. This article points implies the blame is the fault of Republicans, however, another article explains the fiasco is because of the Democrat Governor.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to identify which political party decided to not postpone the primary votes and why, in my opinion.?

King Solomon

He whose conduct is blameless walks in safety, but he who walks in tortuous ways is found out. (Proverb 10:9)

What’s My Point?

Anyone who ever participated in an election knows how difficult it is to unseat an incumbent and the lower the turnout the more favorable it is for incumbents to win elections.

Couple the above with politician’s refusal to vote for term limits for themselves, even though they believed in the reasons that the President should be limited to two terms is hypocritical.

In My Opinion

Both Governors of, Illinois and Wisconsin made the initial decisions not to postpone their elections during the pandemic. A decision to override their same quarantine orders.

Wise for incumbents, foolish for voters.

Frankly, I did not vote in this primary and wish everyone would have done the same. No voters, no vote, now winners, no losers, especially voters who are exposed to coronavirus and get sick because of both the virus and political power grabs while standing close in line in the rain during the middle of a pandemic.

As for mailing votes, which party is refusing to require the same identification that every business requires. Is it because voting is really a “monkeying business” in the eyes of politicians and incumbents?
