Trump is just a failed test of democracy.

Trump and everything he's done, everything the GOP let him get away with...
are just another test of how resilient our democracy is.

The far-right, like the Confederates of the mid 1800's, have some illogical, emotionally driven reason to deny reality.
The South had some Biblical validation to own humans, which they could not prove. Trump also had no proof.

Why they've gotten as far as they have, seeing we did overcome them the last time and should have seen this one coming, is anyone's guess.

So here we are in 2020, and again have the same group of emotional dwarfs whining about something that has never happened. And it's doomsday all over again. All or nothing... again. No, it's a tiny gourp with tiny minds wanting major changes of reality...again.

A 'perceived' process mistake legally failed at every step in the courts- which is the process they are afforded, and that is perfectly OK to do. We expect that to happen, and it did...60+ attempts and they all failed to convince us.
They had no physical evidence to prove their point. Evidence is fact. Period.

Now they have gone violent, just like the South did in 1861, continuing to claim, the imaginary is just as real as facts.

Sorry, no, you lost and we want you to stop with this nonsense and get on with your lives. Keep it up and there will be consequences!

OK, you refuse to listen! Conviction and punishment is now in order.
Impeachment and other serious criminal charges, of the leaders, are filed with more coming....meaning the legal process is working, even though the far right wants to think otherwise. We expect them to resist and deny reality, that our laws are suddenly not their laws,
They are refusing to honor the laws they claim would prove them correct.
The courts said, you have no proof - so, no overturned election. We gave them far more times at bat than was really necessary.
But we trust our laws & legal processes; so we let them go at it, again and again and again. It has now stopped with violence.
They have no more chances in court, no more opportunities. They've chosen the one path that has only one direction.
Conviction of treason in the same courts they used.

Many convicts claim innocence. These traitors will be no different. It's never their fault, even with evidence of fact.
The GOP has always used finger pointing to shy away from it's own bad decisions. This is no different.

We must be immovable in our faith of our legal processes to convict treason, insurrection and abuses it fosters.
"Trumpism" "McCarthyism" "Neoconism" "Nixonism" are just labels for the GOP mistakes, errors and our own intentional... bad choices.

These current traitors/insurrectionists cannot be given any soft consideration, or let the GOP again use, the lamest of excuses.
"Moving too fast with impeachment?"
-- we cannot move fast enough to protect our republic and using the same levels of force we've used in the past.
In fact, the House & Senate could impeach anyone, using the minimal steps, within just a few hours if they wanted to.
Bill given to clerk, clerk has bill read. House Vote -- Done. Bill given to clerk, clerk has bill read. Senate Vote -- Done.
Neither has to hear arguments. The only time consuming aspect is getting the President & the Chief Justice, physcally, into the Senate chamber. We all know how fast the Secret Service can drag someone from point A to point B if needed.

"It was Antifa" (or Martian Unicorns) ... No, it was you Republicans and your right-wing traitors. Nobody else helped you.
"But half the nation thinks... " No, half the nation is not thinking, only a tiny portion thinks the election was fake, imaginary, never happened or stolen. That half also voted and they did not win, nor did they prove fraud of any kind in any court. 60+ rulings prove the fact of loss.
We are done, you had your chance and we will not let you try to blame others for your own actions. You were caught red0handed, on video and there is no denial left. You can be quiet because the timeout is coming, it's just the paperwork now.

We must be intolerant in defending America. We have facts, we have proof and those who deny, suspect and otherwise continue to play this imaginary slight, can and should be legally put into a very dire position for the remainder of their lives.

Some of those convicted in this insurrection should be put to death. All assets seized to cover the damages. And anyone associated with this insurrection should come under a long period of scrutiny; to assure us that this kind of bad behavior is quelled, suppressed and facts are forced down their throats with the broom-handles, flagpoles and fire extinguishers of justice.

Of course if something actually happens, in the future, that can be proven of actual election fraud ( like maybe gerrymandering is a crime) then we will let the processes run those full and complete courses....again. Because we trust our democracy to do just that.

4. I don't buy that

Trump is the classic disorganized criminal. He is incapable of a master plan. He is grossly incompetent and thus the mess we see and experience now.

If there is one person to blame for enabling this psychopath, it is Jack Dorsey. He enabled lies for 5 years, enough to poison the minds of about 40 percent of the population.
