Without help from the military...yea. They're angling for a fascist genocide, and it'll happen 1 by 1, genocide 1 group, instill fear in the others not to act out of line, then move onto the next. Listen to Evangelical preachers. Us fact/reality/science minded people, We're evil in the flesh, and if we can't be converted, they wanna incarcerate or kill us. Treat us an un-persons, untermenschen. They've been attacking reality ever since the confederate Lost Cause and The Scopes Monkey Trial. THeir entire worldview is based on lies, and truth is the enemy.

I've always been alarmed at how OBVIOUSLY bad politicians keep getting elected. You didn't need much intelligence to realize how bad their ideas were "my tax cuts are gonna be so good they'd pay for themselves".

I think that neo-confederate contingent, they been bitter for 160 years, and they want to destroy the government from the inside.

The real problem is they also have a hold on the police departments in this country which are now small military occupation installations in every US city more or less with the force of the state and prison system behind them just like Apartheid South Africa.

ANd the aristocracy are shielded from this too, those with the most economic power, when they're insulated from evil and attrocities, they tend not to ever care, even though through their economic power they have the most means to change the system (Oskar Schindler saved 1000+ Jews, through owning a factory and his Nazi Party Connections for example, and having a human conscious, he saw a SS roundup/genocide and it stunned him, where before he was just in it for profit and cheap labor like a lot of other corporations/capitalists/factory owners).

To be fair unless the US military sides with the fascist (which they wont) we are good from that angle. I would love to see the gravy seals, the epitome of genetic perfection, try to get ready for battle. They will be massacred.

Now what would be more concerning is devolvong into a Putin style government with gerrymandering, voter suppression, and states overriding election results, in which the only 2 choices will be Putin or Putin.

You are assuming a Republican will never be president again.

Yes if we can help it. The demographics are looking good for Democrats and people are becoming more progressive especially younger people. Now that assumes voter suppression and gerrymandering do not take place
