I hate to sound so dystopian, but we need to be honest with ourselves. Our fate is staring us straight in the face and either you acknowledge it or you don’t. Trump is throwing everything he can at the 2020 election and we’re simply not prepared for how brazen his theft will be.
And that doesn’t even begin to address the underhanded ways he will use to steal the election, like having the Russians directly hack into our election systems.
So, political darkness has fallen.
Really, the only issue is how difficult is it, ultimately, for Trump to steal the election. I’m beginning to think Trump is going to cruise into a similar situation like 2016, even before he ratfucks the postal service and has Barr, through the bullshit Durham investigation produce a Second Comey Letter effect so he wins.
Once Trump effectively has his political sins wiped clean by “winning” the 2020 election, the autocratic trend we’ve already seen will only accelerate. I just don’t see there being any more elections in the United States after 2020. For various reasons, ranging from blood thirsty Qanon moves to a Constitutional Convention, the 2020 Election is it. It’s the last one we’ll have.
Of course, there is a .00000000000000000000000000000001% chance that somehow, someway all the ratfucking that House Trump uses doesn’t work. But, just like with impeachment, it’s comical at this point to entertain such an idea.
Really, the only possible way Trump doesn’t stay in power for the rest of his life is he loses some sort of civil war. And I just don’t see that happening. House Trump is going to rapidly consolidate power to the point that the current ICE camps become Trumplandia death camps.
Nothing is going to save us. We’re not even going to save ourselves.
I only keep writing stuff like this to acclimate myself to the new reality of living in Trumplandia.
I wish something would happen to give me hope. Sadly, every day only proves my worst fears are already a reality. The First Republic is no more.
