I’m allowing myself to gloat for a few minutes at the news that the Colorado Supreme Court has banned Trump from running for office. Obviously, SCOTUS will overturn this ruling, but I’ll allow myself a bit of “hopeum” for an evening, if nothing else.
But, for me, the point is — the 14th Amendment says what it says. And if you look at it strictly from the point of view of the words in the Constitution, then Trump is banned.
And, yet, we live in extremely polarized times. So, lulz. I continue to believe that we’re careening towards a very dark future. Late 2024, early 2025 could be the most momentous era in our nation’s history since the end of the civil war. It’s like we’ve collectively made a decision to either descend into tyranny, or have some sort of civil war / revolution.
And whatever happens, it will happen really quick and in a shocking way that leaves everyone flabbergasted.
