    I didn't pay much attention to the Spanish Civil War until I read Hemingway and Orwell. I've read a little history here and there...what are you reading now?

    You COMPLETELY forget the part WHERE HE HAS AN ARMED MILITIA. Have any of you guys not been paying attention to gun sales this summer? In states like Indiana and South, there are cities that have no ammo and back-ordered for weeks. I do business in Terre Haute (Indiana) and in Louisana and gun sales in the rural areas are literally through the roof. His followers will not just magically disappear. Theres have never been a president in our history that has given a voice to the white supremist and extreme right wing. They're not going to just give that illusion up.

    You guys way to optimistic in this thread for no reason. There has been NOTHING that has been presented to us that this will end peacefully. I recommend you guys to watch this

    Doesn’t sound like there will be a peaceful transfer of power.

    Some of these swing states that allow mail in ballot for everyone but won’t count them until Election Day... well, hopefully they have more than 1 counter.

    Dems cheat their ass off and win due to an immense amount of fraudulent ballots. Then they will riot anyway because that's what they do.

    Nobody lies like Trump. He can't even stop himself from lying. Its just how his crooked mind works.

    Trust me when I say the CIA and National Guard will be on the lookout for that.

    The last scenario I'm worried about is Trump leading his loonies against the US Government.

    These people that load up on guns and ammo are the types paranoid about a socialist democrat takeover that is never going to happen.

    What would be funny and sad is I brought up this exact scenario yesterday as something that should be taken seriously or not..

    Apparently when I said I was living in a lot of heads yesterday Trump was one of them.. ;)

    A lot of what said regarding partisan violence isn't a prediction. it's already happening.

    Last night a house in a Minneapolis suburb was set on fire. The house was the home of a Trump supporter and BLM and Antifa graffiti was found at the scene. There is a possibility that they could've done this to themselves but either way it shows the extent of that people are going in this election.

    Before this we saw BLM supporters getting shot in Kenosha. A Trump supporter was shot in Portland. The shooter was then shot a few days later on the same day a video of him comes out essentially saying we are in civil war.

    this is the part that is a bit scary..

    this is as close as the white supremacists and extreme right wing types have gotten to their platform. this is their big chance. im curious to hear your cancun plans. might have to do same


    if things on vote fixing and all the measures dont go trump way and a landslide is likely trump will be trying to make his escape.

    from biden side and generally speaking it is in the best interest of any president going forward to not have had the previous president jailed/ prosecuted.

    it sets a bad precedent and biden being establishment if they can sweep and move on that will be the move I expect.
    if landslide or biden slight winner...people thinking to see trump in orange jumpsuit will never happen and biden would be as much there as anyone else looking to overall save face.

    in general our internal politics look terrible and looking to create cohesion and unity and respect doesnt happen if trump is still being prosecuted. the best move for all at that point is to call it all good and move on. i want trump in jail as much as anyone else but Im also trying to view this realistically. trump is a pussy we all know that so if he can get it all dropped he would agree to go to florida and stfu. i think he would obviously want to save face and down the line live to see another day.

    i wouldnt be surprised at all if trump already has a legal team working with biden and senate for a potential plea / escape. trump might be a jackoff but hes got some legal advice and lords knows hes a master at weaseling out. he is probably pulling biggest weasel job of his life right now.

    something like "i will go quietly if shield me" and if im biden i take that deal AND protect integrity of the president itself. think about it from biden perspective - he gets to be president AND trump stands down and goes quietly...

    we are way too fake and superficial here to bring justice to trump. trump might even get assurance from biden and still bounce to malta or russia or similar until smoke clears.

    think about it ..the more chaos trump can muster if he loses gives him more ammo to get a deal for himself. you know art of the deal style. it will always be to save his own neck we all know that

    Isabelle Allende's new book, Petals of the Sea or something like that. Good one.

    The flaw in this plan is that someone would have to be stupid enough to take a Trump at his word.

    Another wrinkle is that Colin Powell, Weinberger's chief aid and accomplice narrowly escaped indictment when the Sainted Bush I pardoned all the Iran Contra criminals so the investigation ended. As we know Powell lived to later help lie us into the Iraq War.

    Damn, B-Bob I remember when just a couple of years ago you seemed so contented with America. I agree it will take a long time and much chaos till we will overcome the mess created by the conservative movement from Reagan to Trump aided by the feeble resistance of the corporate Dems.

    I have been thinking of reading and dreading some of the books that describe how the democratically elected Adoph Hitler just kept gradually blowing past all the norms till he became the monster we all cite.

    Please tell me that you are not also drinking bleach and refusing to wear a mask because you follow Dear Leader and he knows more than any of the scientists or experts about everything.

    You guys are COMPLETELY underestimating Trump and what he will do. I GUARANTEE you that he is not setting up a deal with Biden because if he was then he wouldn't be in a rush to appoint a new justice. He would wait for the lame-duck session and drive republican turnout for the election. He 110% plans on taking this to the supreme court and plans on stealing this election in any way he possibly can. I'm sure he's already spoken to the AG's in numerous republican states about stopping counting the mail-in ballots come election day.

    Trump's end game is to create is own television network and to take on FoxNews. This attack on MSM is just smoke and mirrors when he launches his own network. This is where the real money and Trump knows it. It's because of this that there's no way Trump can look weak post-election and he will fight tooth and nail to the very end. This will only help drive subscribers and viewers to his new network.

    This has been planned out for years since he nominated Kavanaugh to the bench. Now the plan looks better than before because he controls the courts more than at that time. You guys are all getting played like fiddles in here.

    we are making predictions.
    i dont think its any secret trump is a slimeball and is literally capable of anything..

    you are saying supreme court and while it will possibly come to that I still hold to idea that trump will get so thoroughly beaten he will have little options and threat of scorched earth is enough of a factor he can squeeze an exit.

    its already going to be contested it seems in states with mail in so you are right but can popular vote be overridden in a state? what are mechanisms to do that and in what states?
