The assertion has been made that the Revote case, if it should succeed, might cause civil war. Rather, it seems quite obvious to us that the best way to avoid such an event, to replace war with persuasive speech and constitutional procedure, is to void the 2016 election because it was decisively influenced by a foreign power, namely Russia, or their temporary tyrant, Vladimir Putin. The fascism, which everyone knows has been rising in America surrounding the election of Donald Trump, may well be a foreign contrivance. It is certainly being cultivated to the delight of Putin, as is foreign war for the United States. We do not know what he has in mind for us, or just how he plans to harm the United States, but as we have told him, it is time, even for his own good, that he go home and try to make his own nation “great.” We do not care to find out what beneficence this dictator intends for us. But as the Chaldeans, the Mexicans and Muslim Americans know already, and as ICE imposes fascism to the limit of its legal ability, just below the level of general public apprehension, it is quite real. The “Ethno-state,” is TREASON, adhering to a different constitution, and these have been and are in apparent alliance with the “white” guys over on the other side of the globe. The revote effort is in truth the best way to avoid civil war and worse. For do not think that fascism could seize power in the united states without some asserting their natural right as stated in the fourth clause of the second sentence of the Declaration, “whenever” government fails to secure these ends, the purpose to “secure” “rights,” …., but not for trivial causes. “But when…”
All indications are that “when” will be much too late.
One problem is that the anti-Trump forces would likely lose. One of the first things, one notes, that Trump did was to flatter the NRA people, so that they are supporting the tyrant and looking in the opposite direction for one wanting to end the gun show and gun lobby American promiscuity regarding firearms to come to “take their guns.” Never mind if arms are used to oppress or to arm fascist tyranny instead of Liberty. For some time now, the only Amendment in their Bill of Rights has been the Second. Next is to pretend to a power to “deputize” state police in the service of ICE. ICE is in fact guilty of MURDER if the Chaldeans are deported illegally to a place they are in danger, and they are killed. We must sit by like lambs and watch our government and Donald Trump cross the line of murder so characteristic of the tyrant (Plato, Republic, Book VIII). The way of peaceful, non-violent protest is not only right, but it is in our circumstances also a necessity. In Ancient Rome, the Republican forces lost a decisive battle with Pompey against Caesar, and then the Republicans were done. The error of Brutus inaugurated over a century of the worst tyranny the world had ever seen, and would see until Stalin and Hitler. Four or Five times, in the late days of Tiberius, Caligula, Nero, and Domitian, monsters took the imperial diadem and murdered at will until they were assassinated, but Rome could not rid itself of seemingly perpetual tyranny. The error of Brutus was to fail to observe the action of the first Brutus, who, upon the rape of Lucrece, expelled but did not kill the tyrant Tarquin, and founded the Roman Republic, from which, (and not from Imperial Rome) we copy our own Senate. The bad emperors killed Senators at will, and borrowed their wives as well, right in font of them while they smiled and flattered as though nothing were occurring. Tyranny cannot be expelled by assassination, because it is, despite appearances, not caused by a single man. It is a disease of a polity, now looming for America, though we are blessed not to even be able to imagine tyranny as a possibility for us. The Chaldeans know otherwise.
Soon we may see that despite non-violent efforts, the protesters against the rising fascism may be attacked. Then with the seized law, the Trumpsters will simply reverse the guilt with a fake news statement and arrest anyone so rude as to defend themselves or other innocents: That is the sort of thing that tyranny and tyrants do. We have already seen it emerge. I myself am labeled dangerous, while doing nothing wrong, but warning of real dangers, such as the planned attack on Chicago. Martin Luther King and Company would train the activists to be able to sit calmly even while women and girls are attacked by men with badges right in front of you-what else can one do that does not bring more harm than good? Get the innocents out of the way. Use caution gathering in one place. But do not doubt that these things are “just a shot away.”
The revote effort is precisely the way to avoid the civil war that fruitlessly will be caused by the rising fascism left unchecked. Our Constitution provides the means, in both the Supreme Court and though impeachment, to avoid tyranny and to remove a tyrannical president without war- that is indeed its point. Though fee speech, press and assembly would be bound to get rowdy, election is precisely the replacement for civil war, even as football is a civilized sublimation of war between cities. And here is fine thought: Colin Powell received the third most votes in the Electoral College, due to one “faithless” elector out east. He would then be available for the House to choose as President, a compromise candidate, should neither candidate receive a majority in an Electoral College e-vote. Now that is a way to heal the faction leading to civil war, should Mr. Powell be available. I am still angry that his career was harmed by the vote in the U.N. on Iraq, Saddam,and WMD (Saddam violated the treaty that ended the Gulf War, so the war resumed.WMD was not the issue. They just wanted an unanimous vote in the U.N., remember?) The Republicans seem slow to realize that they do not need Donald Trump at all, nor does America, for the most, need any individual, with perhaps Lincoln and Jefferson excepted. Obvious is Obvious, and we need merely make the truth, now known to two thirds of the electorate, effective through our constitutional institutions. The Russians threw the 2016 election. We would not otherwise elect a man who had literally never read the Constitution. Russia wanted us to have a pilot who literally does not know what he is doing, but can be led about by flattery and such ends as “winning” and Money. One cannot serve both God and mammon, but especially the US. Christians have been thoroughly deceived, as were the Republicans, by the prospect of running the table with their dear partisan platform. But what two thirds may never know, until it is much too late, is what depends upon our action, to now stand up for Liberty and for our now 230 year old Constitution.
