Before You Panic and Grab Your Passports, Read This About How Trump’s Coup d’Etat Can Be Foiled

917

If there’s one thing to be said about the Trump mis-administration, it’s that we are all getting a refresher course in basic constitutional law and election procedure, or hearing it for the first time. Now, I’ve been accused of panicking myself, however, I will say that it’s better to be forearmed than be taken by surprise. My motto is prepare for the worst, hope for the best, and don’t be surprised by anything that changes the game.

A number of articles have come out describing how Trump is planning a coup d’etat. The latest wrinkle is that Trump wants to bypass election results and appoint electors loyal to him, in battle ground states with a Republican legislative majority. That is enough to cause a freak out, in a political maelstrom where freak out is rapidly becoming a daily occurrence, no different than sunrise or sunset.

But we do have options.

Now here is where the battle lines are drawn: Trump is creating a mental challenge more than a legal one, but this is politics and perception is everything. He’s attempting to gaslight the country so that he can steal the election. A lot depends upon Republican decency, unfortunately, and that’s an oxymoron and a non existent quality in this day and age. The good Republicans have joined the resistance. But is the nature of peoples’ fear, and it is legitimate, that Trump’s GOP enablers will sell out America to stay in power.

The bottom line is that either we, meaning sane and decent Americans, outnumber and can outvote the crazies, or America is the crazies and the same and decent people are the minority. I don’t want to think that ever, but I have to say that late election night 2016, my perceptions shifted. I realized that the America I grew up in no longer existed, because that America could never have elected this fringe Tv performer. But the America of 2016 could.

So let me be clear: I believe that we will win. I believe that Trump is toast. But I am looking in the rear view mirror, side view mirrors and through the sun roof, to see everything that’s out there, coming out way, because Election 2020 is a Cat 5 shit storm. All I’m saying is beware, and look at everything. And Get.Out.The.Vote. Our first, best, and possibly only defense against Trump is a resounding Biden/Harris victory, that Trump cannot challenge.

Where the senate GOP stands. When you decide to serve your country, no matter how. You do it mainly with a sense of honor. When you abdicate that honor for any reason, that honor is lost. The only recourse that you now have is to resign whatever job or purpose you started with. To do anything else is only going to compound what you did. The entire republican senate members should resign. They have lost their honor.

I had no idea vile republicans want a dictatorship and then to watch the country burn. The last 4yrs. have been quite the learning experience.
