This is not something you have to worry about: This is America, not Russia. Everybody and their dog has multiple guns if you just go by the numbers. Somebody would step forward and solve the problem before Trump managed a third term. I don't have any, and I don't plan on getting any: I'm too old and feeble to play Red Dawn. But there are thousands of people who would.

Richard Nixon suffered from paranoid delusions and he surrounded himself with "like-minded" individuals. The results included Watergate, numerous felony convictions of cronies and subordinates, a Presidential resignation (and pardon), and a permanently tainted party.

Trump is leagues worse. He does, in the open, what Nixon had the sense to do in private. There have already been numerous convictions. There will be more. Barr will likely resign his license before he is disbarred. Several cabinet members may yet be charged. Likely Trump will pardon himself and his children before leaving office (yet another abuse of power), and the party will be forever tainted by his presidency. Would that the rest of us did not have to suffer because of their cravenness and incompetence.

Wonderful isn't it? They're self destructing before our very eyes...like a spectacular magic trick...millions of insufferable pricks being made to look like fools. And they're the last ones in on the joke.

Yeah, there's that. We're trying to work a bloodless coups by inserting a SOCIALIST candidate and outvoting them in November.
