I write a lot about how I vacillate widely at any particular moment between thinking we’re going to have a civil war and thinking we’re going to simply turn into an autocracy. But usually, I assume this particular crisis will happen around 2024 – 2025.
But there are signs that things have gotten so bad that my fears about the corruption of the administration of elections — Bannon’s “administrative coup” — might happen as part the 2022 mid-terms. Given that Republicans always, ALWAYS get away with politically bloody murder, if Democrats get sucker punched in the 2022 election we’re all probably going to shrug.
And, yet, I suppose there is a small possibility that if Republicans yet again catch the political car and get what they want, which is making it logistically impossible Democrats to win elections in crucial states like Michigan and Florida, there might be some blowback at last.
How that might work out, I don’t know, but if Republicans brazenly steal Congress in 2022 by simply not certifying the election of Democrats…well, who knows.
I don’t think anything is going to happen, no matter what.
