Ordinarily I would agree with you @pawnman but when one side is no longer a good faith partner in a rule of law, respect for minority rights, democracy by their open secret perversion & warping of our immigration, asylum and legal process(es) to rapidly change the demographics of this country while demanding a less rigorous process to vote than to check out a library book while simultaneously using what parts of the American government, economy and institutions they do control to harass and intimidate their enemies... IMHO, it is possible that neither side will accept the election results and then where do we go from there?

This is likely an inflection point for American Democracy as we currently practice it, do we trust the processes and accept the results?

You know the left says the same crap about the right? It's the echo-chamber effect. 

How would you "not accept the results?" That's about as likely as those bunch of idiots getting into Groom Lake.

I would not put it past prominent Dems to ask foreign governments to not recognize the winner of a race as the President if they didn't like the results and thought they could get away with it.  They could state they recognize Candidate X for President and if the State Governments of the largest, most prominent states refused to accept the results, the world just might follow them.  As it would be the equivalent of an H-bomb on our economy, this might cause all the other institutions in our country to say screw the real results and give in.  

They currently flout federal law, interfere and attempt to hamper federal law enforcement when it suits them and ignore the growing censorship, exclusion and harassment of "woke capitol" on private citizens in the economy and public sphere when it suits them.  They suffer no repercussions and only have more incentive to try more.

The Republic as we know it is dying.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/pew-91-democrats-see-violence-next-in-war-of-words

Nearly 8 of 10 Americans told the Pew Research Center that supporters for both sides could “act” on the politically charged rhetoric with violence. It was higher for Democrats, 91%, than Republicans, 61%.”

That’s the thing. The right, despite its flaws, appears to understand and respect the electoral process. If Trump loses, they’re not going to go Antifa on everyone. They’ll likely hope Congress acts as a backstop, and if they’re not sure about the legislature, they’ll get super active and vote in large numbers in two years. Historically, this has happened a few times. In an election year with mild D turnout, you get the Tea Party wave, for example.

The Democrat party has embraced a victimhood/cry wolf mentality that has given them incredible political and psychological power. However, they’re learning that they can’t control it in today’s social media/SJW world, as it’s a chain of thought with no rational conclusion. It’s an infinity loop of oppression olympics.

My forecast is the Dems tear themselves apart... and that will end up being a peaceful process, or a drastically violent one. We’ll either see a lot of Weather Underground/Bill Ayers domestic terrorist types, or a highly visible shouting match over who is the true Democrat party.

Option one will test the republic, namely posse comitatus and the power of the IC. Option two will cause a nationwide shortage of popcorn.

So, stock up on corn and ammo?

I was on my last free article, so it said a few days ago. From what I recall TLDR version: all Dems have to do is nominate a decent human being who can work with possibly Dem controlled House and Senate, but they’re convincing themselves that the only path is a person so radical the country won’t elect them. Trump wins again.

They believe pragmatism can’t beat extremism in an even fight (despite constantly remind themselves the middle isn’t what’s coming to Arenas to see Trump).

When you listen to the head of the DNC lay out party priorities and what it is to be a democrat the last few years though it’s obvious he and others believe they can tap into that youth rage effect as a political demographic. The problem is they don’t have near the patients or pragmatism the establishment needs to steer them effectively and are just as likely to tell the party to F off (Bernie Bros for example) when not getting everything they as a group demand. It’s at best a volatile group to try and harness.

The full koolaid ultra left side of the climate change debate are the best example of this ultra my way or F yourself thinking. Those are the ones who simultaneously believe any and all things must be done to immediately stop carbon emissions and so forth... until the second you bring up the renewable source we currently have ready to go, Nuclear. If it’s not windmills powered by unicorn farts and electric cars powered by magic it’s unacceptable as a solution.

Remember when the GOP was against going into debt?

This two year thing is an abomination.

 

All fun and games until the bill comes due.

Yup.

One day, one of these carnival barkers we elect every 4 years will have to tell the truth:

More has been promised than can be delivered and that like after any period of excess, a period of sacrifice will have to be had by all.

The rich will pay more in taxes, the middle class will have to wait till they are older to retire and the poor will receive fewer benefits.  We will do less on the world stage than others are used to us doing, we will have to stop borrowing & loaning to our enemies and rivals and require more from those who desire our protection.

You forgot to mention that the middle class will also pay more in taxes (even Bernie has said this will happen I feel he gets elected).

Asfor doing less on the world stage, this is a positive IMO and one of the reasons as to why we're in this mess.

Yup
We only need to close a 900 billion dollar deficit then start to whittle away on 22+ trillion in debt

Simplify the tax code (15% flat tax on 75k and above with no deductions, credits or exemptions. Treat Active and Passive income the same.
Uncap the limit on payroll taxes to fund Social Security, Medicare.
Estate tax on assets above 25 million at 25%.
No overall spending increase till budget in surplus.

True, but it seems the perception of "importance" in the minds of the general public has been ratcheted up into dangerous levels.   I intentionally tried to avoid much of the election coverage last cycle and found it is damn near impossible to escape while existing in the modern world. I believe most people are freely consuming political media round the clock with zero consideration of its effects. Some are motivated by politics to commit crimes and violent acts with increasing frequency, and each one committed lowers the bar for the next.

In general, I support the Christchurch shooter and
his manifesto. This attack is a response to the
Hispanic invasion of Texas. They are the instigator
s, not me. I am simply defending my country from
cultural and ethnic replacement brought on by an in
vasion. Some people will think this statement is
hypocritical because of the nearly complete ethnic
and cultural destruction brought to the Native
Americans by our European ancestors, but this just
reinforces my point. The natives didn’t take the
invasion of Europeans seriously, and now what’s lef
t is just a shadow of what was. My motives for this
attack are not at all personal. Actually the Hispan
ic community was not my target before I read The
Great Replacement. This manifesto will cover the po
litical and economic reasons behind the attack, my
gear, my expectations of what response this will ge
nerate and my personal motivations and thoughts.
Political Reasons
In short, America is rotting from the inside out,
and peaceful means to stop this seem to be nearly
impossible. The inconvenient truth is that our lead
ers, both Democrat AND Republican, have been
failing us for decades. They are either complacent
or involved in one of the biggest betrayals of the
American public in our history. The takeover of the
United States government by unchecked
corporations. I could write a ten page essay on all
the damage these corporations have caused, but here
is what is important.Due to the death of the baby
boomers, the increasingly anti-immigrant rhetoric of
the right and the ever increasing Hispanic population, America will soon become a one party-state. The
Democrat party will own America and they know it. They have already begun the transition by
pandering heavily to the Hispanic voting bloc in the 1st Democratic Debate. They intend to use open
borders, free healthcare for illegals, citizenship
and more to enact a political coup by importing and then
legalizing millions of new voters. With policies li
ke these, the Hispanic support for Democrats will likely
become nearly unanimous in the future. The heavy Hispanic population in Texas will make us a
Democrat stronghold. Losing Texas and a few other states with heavy Hispanic population to the
Democrats is all it would take for them to win near
ly every presidential election. Although the
Republican Party is also terrible. Many factions within the Republican Party are pro-corporation. Pro-
corporation = pro-immigration. But some factions within the Republican Party don’t prioritize
corporations over our future. So the Democrats are
nearly unanimous with their support of immigration
while the Republicans are divided over it. At least
with Republicans, the process of mass immigration
and citizenship can be greatly reduced.

Oops, I thought this was the WTF thread.

But seriously, we're witnessing a slow motion political riot, and it's only going to get worse.

If the problem is mass shootings, everyone is looking for a solution. 

Are Trump, Biden, and everyone else looking for a gun law solution legitimately try to solve the problem, or are they 2A opponents who want to disarm the population and turn everyone into slaves of the state? 

If a person believes anyone advocating a gun law is not acting in good faith to curb violence and they refuse to negotiate away from their position even a small amount, they will eventually lose big. Trump knows this.

Why am I not surprised that Comey did the same thing Hillary did?

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/read-doj-inspector-general-report-on-former-fbi-director-james-comey

"One rule for me, another for thee."

 

Supposedly, DOJ isn't pursuing Comey for this since it's "small potatoes," but going after him for the FISA warrants fiasco.

On the other hand, DOJ isn't particularly known for going after it's own...
