    Plus also, I'm not sure it would achieve anything "positive". Highly likely the other way around.

    You are probably right. The worthless piece of garbage just needs to be gone. He has caused enough anguish and death.

    I hate to think the desire for immediate gratification regardless of the harm to others is a normal part of civilized discourse. You guys scare me.

    A friend proposed that Trump may pull off some sort of coup by manipulation of his Republican constituents or legal conniving. My reply was that I think there would be riots. But then again, riots don't seem to be anything new. I'm sure the Patriot Boys would welcome an excuse to quell the rising tumult.

    See, that's an undesireable outcome. Various factions engaged in street warfare. Boo hiss!

    Yes, it would be undesirable. I could see a side or sides as interpreting things as a threat to the core of our democratic system and election process. That is pretty dear to a lot of people.

    Part of our problem is that so many automatically label anything they disapprove of as “a threat to our democracy”. It’s become a sort of reflexive twitch. I think the Republic is sturdier than that.

    Yeah--it would just make a martyr out of the old fool.
