Nothing is going to change. There will be no reforms. Trump isn’t going to be indicted and if he is, he will simply use it as a foil in his 2024 presidential campaign. Or if Trump doesn’t run, the Ron DeSantis will run and we’ll just skip the middle step of him being Trump’s veep. And if DeSantis isn’t Trump’s veep, he could very well pick someone completely bonkers like Gen. Mike Flynn and HE will be America’s Putin starting at some point after 2025.
The point is — get out.
Leave America as soon as you can. Or, if nothing else, figure out some practical contingencies. What do you believe in? What are you willing to suffer for in the real world? There will be no narrative. If you pick wrong, you may die or get tortured at some point down the road.
Or there’s going to be a civil war and if you’re a poor Blue in a Red State, you’re going to become a domestic political refugee with no understanding of what your ultimate endgame will be.
Now, it’s talk like this that got me blocked by Twitter liberal darling “Mueller, She Wrote” for being “terribly negative.” But all those dystopian scenarios are things I really believe may happen, with civil war on one end of the spectrum and autocracy on the other.
The thing that we’re used to, a peaceful transition from one democratically elected Western-style administration to the next, just isn’t going to happen. The worse thing about it all is the MAGA New Right is telling us point blank what their plans are and we’re lulzing it.
But you know that the moment the shit hits the fan that wealthy liberals are going to vote with their feet. They’re going to flee the United States en mass at unpreceded numbers. Even though I’m beginning to think leaving the country is probably my only option, I still think if Twitter liberals weren’t cowards and made it a taboo to leave the country so people would stand and fight then maybe I wouldn’t be so interested in leave the country myself.
Yet, here we are.
The very people who might help us at least slow our slide into autocracy — Twitter liberals — will be the first to bounce. And it will be even worse if we have a civil war instead. But, as I keep saying, if there’s a civil war, it will be Blues NOT Reds who start it and it will happen because of tectonic political and historical forces that will force individuals to bubble up to the surface to be heroes whether they like it or not.
So, get out. If you’re not MAGA and you have the means to get out of the country at some point between now and late 2024, do it.
