The party exists to facilitate Trump's ongoing attempt to seize authoritarian control of our government. Any Republican who thinks otherwise is a fool and a sucker.

It's a hell of a time we're living through.

Even if Trump dies, we'll have to deal with those within his circle of family and friends. Let's hope Trump goes on trial and prison ASAP.

This is why I'll just stick to smoking pot, working out/training, and slowly putting together my expat scheme. Sign me up when we're actually fighting, but I can't do the civil cold war farkery anymore. In other words:

But the thing with cults is when the one true leader is gone there is usually a power struggle that is usually messy. Most cults are set up where it is the leader and nobody else so when the leader is gone they are a rudderless ship.

There were consequences. Hitler was arrested, stood trial, and went to prison.

The difference being that the Weimar Republic was in complete turmoil in the 1920s after a revolution in 1919. At one point Bavaria had two different competing governments - Hoffmann's People's State of Bavaria seated in Bamberg, and the Bavarian Soviet Republic located in Munich. It's not like Hitler rising up against the 'winner' four years later was particularly novel. The Beer Hall Putsch wasn't even the first "putsch" as the Kapp Putsch in 1921 was arguably larger and more successful as it overthrew the national government, not just the Munich locals.

But that's probably too difficult to understand, so better we just call some misguided Trumpian troglodytes just as important as Hitler.

I just turned 40 so not sure what that would realistically be my limitations there. Sure as shiat in better shape than most Americans though. I imagine they'd still need trucks driven and food managed. And this is all assuming it's not just prolonged right-wing terrorism.

I keep telling friends, they really need to watch themselves in the next year or so.

The right wing is actively prepping their sycophants/cultists/etc. for actual violence.  And for all that people like to joke about  'Meal Team 6' and the like, there are people out there that would kill you as soon as look at you.  because the Republicans are actively telling them that if you aren't part of their tribe, you are an 'enemy of the state' and therefore should be dealt with in the harshest way possible.

I expect that the closer we get to the election next year, you will start to see killings cropping up around the US (especially in red states).  If only to put the fear of death into anyone that isn't a Republican or right winger, as if to say 'try to vote against us, and we'll take you out'.

This will not stop.  Not even when the shooting and firebombing starts.  It will only end in a blasted, green glass landscape and the succession of the cockroaches.  Because they aren't willing to stop and we can't stop them.

If you've kept a clean nose you can always go FBI.  They're in need of tech savvy people since so many people smoke weed now.  That will help the republic.

We're not in a shooting war yet.  All comms can be monitored*, but the manpower to analyze that is the bottleneck.

I would agree with that. There's something "special" about Trump. Maybe it's the fact that he's been a quasi-celebrity for decades and at least appears to be extremely wealthy.

Mainly it's the fact that he has no shame at all. He'll insult anyone at any time without compunction. I just don't see Cruz, Hawley, or anyone else taking the mantle if Trump dies or in incarcerated.

Trumpers and Trumpism will still exist, but they won't be as enthusiastic without him egging them on.

Even if Trump drops dead before 2024, one of his endangered animal murdering spawn will run for POTUS. The Electoral College gives which ever Trump who runs a genuine advantage. If Harris & her VP overcome the disadvantage built in with the Electoral College, the Trumpists will make January 6 look like a picnic with finger sandwiches.

I hope and pray that I'm wrong.

This guy is just as much a nutter as the Trumpanzees, he's not wrong about what they want to do, but utterly mistaken if he thinks the rest of America will let them.

For one the intelligence to successfully pull it off is simply not in evidence amongst the traitor party. McConnell, if he was younger, might be able to orchestrate something. But he's the last truly devious weasel in the party and he is NOT Trump's ally. Plenty of the others have the ambition but not the ability.

It's the same problem the Nazis had. The party will not be able to sustain itself against the horrible character of the people it attracts.

The traitor party is currently like a toddler who thinks they are being sneaky, but their parents can see right through them. When the time comes they are gonna get their asses lit up.

Unlike schooling a little one, they are going to really hurt some people in the process. Sadly there's nothing we can do about that. It's part of what will be the tipping point before the spanking starts.

Currently reading the vertigo series DMZ about Manhattan as a DMZ in war between the US government and the "free states of the USA. And I can see that future happening in a few years.

We all joke that Russia backed Trump covertly, but I can see them providing support to the militias and Trump's GQP cronies when they flush all the moderates out. Remember this is a party where McConnel, Jordan, Gaetz, Hawley etc have all thrived. I can see them getting material supports from a foreign government if it means clinging to power. Fox News practically become a Russian news site and sided with them over their President. The Cold Civial war has already started.
