This isn’t a novel or a movie, so I won’t keep you in suspense. Here is the single scariest thought of the year, maybe of the decade.
Even if Trump loses the election, he still will be President for another two months.
That gives him plenty of time to deny he lost it and to have William Barr “prove” the election was rigged, and to have a right-wing Supreme Court agree.
Remember, this is the same President who has gone to great lengths to claim that he really didn’t lose the last election by 3 million votes, that all those votes were fake, and that with proper counting he would have won by 3 million.
Trump claims 3-5M illegal ballots cost him popular vote, cites no evidence
January 24, 2017 CBS NEWS
At a small reception for a bipartisan group of congressional leaders, President Trump claimed that 3 to 5 million illegal ballots cost him the popular vote, CBS News’ Nancy Cordes and Catherine Reynolds confirmed on Monday night. The claim is unproven.
Mr. Trump made a similar claim before. After the election, he tweeted that he “won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally,” but he cited no evidence to back up his claim.
At the White House press briefing Tuesday, press secretary Sean Spicer was asked if Mr. Trump really believes that millions voted illegally in the election.
“The president does believe that. He has stated that before. I think he’s stated his concerns of voter fraud and people voting illegally during the campaign,” Spicer said. “He continues to maintain that belief based on studies and evidence that people have presented to him.”
Asked what evidence Mr. Trump has specifically, Spicer was unable to provide any information.
“As I said, I think the president has believed that for a while based on studies and information he has.”
Of course, Trump believes it. As a demonstrable psychopath, Trump probably believes all of his 18,000+ lies.
Crazy knows no bounds.
And when a psychopath has a compliant Senate, a compliant Attorney General, and a compliant Supreme Court to do his bidding, there may be no limit to what could happen to America.
As for the Senate, remember this was the same Senate Majority Leader who stated his proudest accomplishment was blocking Obama’s Supreme Court nomination because there was “only” a year to go before the Presidential election.
There was no precedent for such an action since the period around the Civil War and Reconstruction. No Democratic president had made an appointment while Republicans held the Senate since 1895.
In a speech in Kentucky, McConnell said: “One of my proudest moments was when I looked Barack Obama in the eye and I said, ‘Mr. President, you will not fill the Supreme Court vacancy.’ “
McConnell was not alone. The 11 Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee signed a letter saying they had no intention of consenting to any nominee from Obama.
No proceedings of any kind were held on Garland’s appointment.
Given Trump’s, Barr’s, McConnell’s, and the Supreme Court’s lack of honor and honesty, it is by no means a stretch to predict that a Trump loss would be followed by incredible maneuvering to overturn the results and eventually to make Trump President for life.
And remember also, that as President, Trump is Commander-In-Chief of America’s armed forces. Historically, all dictators have taken and remained in power by control over the military.
President Trump Joked That Maybe The US Should Have A “President For Life” Like China. “He’s now president for life,” Trump said of China’s Xi Jinping. “Maybe we’ll give that a shot some day.”

He was just being “sarcastic.” Right?

THE SOLE PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT IS TO IMPROVE AND PROTECT THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE.
The most important problems in economics involve:
- Monetary Sovereignty describes money creation and destruction.
- Gap Psychology describes the common desire to distance oneself from those “below” in any socio-economic ranking, and to come nearer those “above.” The socio-economic distance is referred to as “The Gap.”
Wide Gaps negatively affect poverty, health and longevity, education, housing, law and crime, war, leadership, ownership, bigotry, supply and demand, taxation, GDP, international relations, scientific advancement, the environment, human motivation and well-being, and virtually every other issue in economics.
Implementation of Monetary Sovereignty and The Ten Steps To Prosperity can grow the economy and narrow the Gaps:
Ten Steps To Prosperity:
2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D, plus long-term care — for everyone
3. Provide a monthly economic bonus to every man, woman and child in America (similar to social security for all)
4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone
5. Salary for attending school
6. Eliminate federal taxes on business
7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually.
8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.
9. Federal ownership of all banks
10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9%
The Ten Steps will grow the economy and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and the rest.

Lest you believe the following comment is an aberration, it actually is quite typical of what you will find on many right-wing web sites. It came from something that calls itself, “b4,” in response to the above post (“Read the single scariest thought of the year, maybe of the decade”).
It is what passes for clever thinking among the followers of Donald Trump and his ilk.
I promise it is real, word for word, comma for comma. Usually, my spam filter catches this stuff, but this one got through, and I thought you might find it educational:
It demonstrates the futility of arguing with a Trump follower.
He’d relate this “highly mature” response: I know you are but what am I.
And yet, white people of every demo (age/income) voted in, the plurality, for PRESIDENT TRUMP. It is amusing how whites want to disassociate themselves from PRESIDENT TRUMP, when they wanted him in office. Additionally, white people offered HRC as an alternative, and now they offer the mildly racist 1970s rockfeller republican aka Biden, as their Dem nominee. Can’t make this stuff up.
The essence of bigotry is to lump all people under one classification and then deride that classification, thereby criticizing every individual.
So, if some black people are drug dealers, that becomes, in the bigot’s mind, “all black people are drug dealers.” Trump uses that format when he talks about Mexicans being rapists and Muslims being terrorists.
I notice you use the same format in your frequent and generalized outbursts about white people.
You, of course, are not racist. Right?
