    He does know that come January 20th should he lose has no authority right? He'd just be a squatter in the Oval Office at that point.

    The question you should be asking is who will the military side with?
    There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
    There is no fear, there is power.
    I am the heart of the Force.
    I am the revealing fire of light.
    I am the mystery of darkness.
    In balance with chaos and harmony,
    Immortal in the Force.

    If Trump gets another judge, the majority of the SCOTUS will be nominated from Presidents that didn't even have the majority of the vote when first elected.

    He may well incite some violence from his followers but he's not going to overthrow our system of government. If he loses, he will officially not be the president anymore in January, Biden will be sworn in with or without him and those Federal and state charges may well be waiting.
    This is what courage looks like.

    I agree. That is what I was saying. His supporters will take to the streets and riot but it wont last ling before they are put down.

    There really should be a rule that says if you say, "Throw out the ballets" and you're immediately removed from office by the secret service. Do not pass go, do not collect another term.

    Nice way to say it.

    Personally, I think all potential Presidential candidates should be vetted before any elections. If there is anything seriously shady in their past or present, they should be disqualified.

    Also, releasing Income Taxes should be a requirement or they face disqualification.

    I mean, yes that's pretty much what happens. Should the election not go down or Biden wins he's either removed by Secret Service or the armed forces escort him out. Trump doesn't just stay in power, he could hang out in the Oval Office but basically he'd have no power. Some yes men maybe, but any action by him has no authority.

    The guy who gets inaugurated by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court on the steps of the capitol. According to the polls, it will be the father of a deceased bronze star medal recipient endorsed by John McCain's widow.

    This is why I don't think the military would side with Trump.

    And the generals, captains, etc. are all educated men, who don't poll well with Trump

    Yeah, but I mean immediately. You say those words out loud and you're simply removed. Trump has said some crazy stuff before but I really don't see how this latest is defensible, I mean sure his supporters can go back to the, "He was just joking" well yet again but out right threatening democracy should be an immediate no go, no need to hold an impeachment trial, no need to vote; you threaten the bedrock of democracy in ignoring the voice of the people to stay in power then you're simply done.

    If Trump is somehow defeated, there needs to be a number of rules shorn up in regards to presidential power. So many facets of the Executive Office have relied on the president to have some honor and respect for the constitution. The system was not prepared for someone like Trump who would happily become the first dictator of the United States.

    Looks like two officers have been shot in Louisville.
