    I can't justify it and have never tried, nor will I ever attempt to justify your desire to see him killed.

    He can probably be forcibly removed from office without being killed.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    The optimum word is probably and the best scenario. I previously reiterated my wish for him to be gone based on the continual drama and anguish he causes. I truly don’t care how at this point.

    The worst thing would be assassination. Civil war could ensue.

    We just need to get through the next several weeks. Today Maricopa county in Arizona certified our ballots. I think itís 5 republicans and one democrat on the committee. They found no problems with our system and certified us as a Biden win.

    I didnít have the patience for it but my husband watched the entire process today. We were impressed with our local governmentís ability to work in a nonpartisan manner, following the process as defined in law and statute. This is where our countryís hope lies.

    It would surprise me. We seem to have let our more lurid violent fantasies overtake the reality in front of us.

    Well the appearance is that he's attempting to overthrow an election, and well he's a narcissist so who knows how he deals with losing. However it might also be just another grift, because he's always been a con-man and grifter if nothing else, and we decided in 2016 it was time to let a successful con-man be president afterall. So he might just be collecting money off the rubes who donate to his faux coup.

    Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-Va.), one of the first lawmakers to speak out against unfounded allegations of voter fraud, said the Trump campaign’s lack of success in the courts proves there isn’t legitimate evidence to back its case.

    ”I feel like we're watching one of history's great grifts based on what we saw from Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani yesterday — this feels like a money-making venture,"

    Riggleman added that he is disappointed more GOP lawmakers haven’t come out against the claims.

    “There are smart, smart people up there that are not coming out and not identifying this for what it is, and this is simply a conspiratorial grift ... I believe it's a fundraising venture," he said. "The thing is, though, is that when you're spouting these type of ridiculous alternative facts, there are people that believe it and I think it's time for everybody to sort of rise up in the GOP and say, 'This is enough.'"

    Remember Bannon collected a bunch of donations to build a wall, and then just made off with it. So that too is who Trump and friends are.

    I'm thinking this can be credited to what has been deemed "reality" over the last four years, and the violence and fantasies put forth by Trump during that time. He has a fantasy of a dictator-wanna-be, and from the violence we've already seen, who knows how far the violence will go.

    Not true... trump has tried to get MI electors to change their minds. Now he is working on Georgia. I put nothing past him.

    If Trump actually achieved overturning the popular vote, and altering what should be the electoral college vote? Then it would mean government "of the people, by the people, and for the people" is dead. This is what I define as the death of democracy, and the beginning of an authoritarian dictatorship.
