Thinking The Unthinkable: A Tie

by Shelt Garner

The idea of an Electoral College tie is not a new one, but given how perilously close the United States is to a MAGA Nazi dictatorship, the idea that we would have to deal with such a thing is even more alarming.

If there is a tie, the House would decide the presidency, while the Senate would decide who would be veep. But, of course, it’s actually lot more complicated than that because the president would be decided by state delegations to the House, rather than a simple majority.

As such, each state would have one vote.

If this were to happen, it’s clear that Trump would be elected POTUS.

And, yet, the wildcard might be the Senate. It’s at least possible that in some effort to placate an angry populace, that the Senate might name Kamala Harris as Trump’s veep. This would set up the surreal situation where Trump might go full tyrant us, cause the US to come to the brink of civil war…then he might abruptly shuffle off this mortal coil and Harris would have to clean up the mess.

As an aside, I think we have to appricate that Trump’s ultimate historic purpose could be to simply break the Constitution to the point that we feel forced as a nation to go back to the drawing board with a Constitutional Convention. As I’ve suggested before, Trump could, in the end, be something of an American Caesar in the sense that he ultimately is nothing more than a transitional figure who destroys the Republic, causing something new to take its place.

There is a spectrum of possibilities. Everything from the founding of a Third Republic to a complete and total slide into a white Christian ethnostate.

But that is a great deal of speculation. I have no idea what is going to happen.
