Would you rather cheat in 2020 and win, or not cheat in 2020 and lose?
(I was going to direct the question at Republicans, but to be fair, I include partisans of all Parties. My only request is that if you choose to answer, you not deflect by whining how awful the "other" Party is. Can we do that? I do believe the question is relevant because, depending on how honest you are, at this point there is incontrovertible evidence that actual cheating, as well as attempts to cheat, occurred in 2016. There also is incontrovertible evidence that foreign nations, especially Russia, are gearing up to cheat in favor of one Party in particular, again. Finally, please do not avoid the question by being disingenuous and claiming those are not the only 2 choices. For purposes of responding to this thread, those are the only 2 choices.)
At least 70 people were killed and 30 more injured in a fire that engulfed a train in Pakistan on Thursday morning, after a gas canister that passengers were using to prepare breakfast exploded. The train was passing through the town of Rahim Yar Khan, in the south of Punjab province, when a stove blew up, causing a fire which spread through the train, according to local police officer Amir Taimoor. Nadeem Zia, the medical supervisor of District Headquarters Hospital in Liaquatpur, a city in Rahim Yar Khan district, confirmed the death toll. Footage broadcast on CNN affiliate Geo TV showed a blaze ripping through the carriages, with flames licking out of the windows and sending black smoke billowing into the sky. Crowds gathered around the dramatic scene, as firefighters, paramedics, and soldiers responded. An army helicopter was flown to the site from the city Multan to evacuate those who were critically injured, according to the ISPR, a media wing of the Pakistan Armed Forces.
