Just admiring the problem here.
We’ve got 2 years of Progressive Hell in front of us. Unless, of course, some change of personnel happens in the Senate or some court actually is willing to address the issue of a fraudulent election result. (Or, I suppose, the U.S. Military shows it too can see fraud in front if itself, but I doubt that will happen. Too much discipline.)
It might happen that some Senator flips from Dem to Repub (but again, I doubt it, why switch from the side that’s in power?). It similarly might happen one exits by some other means and a special election or appointment replaces them with a Republican. Again unlikely.
No, the most likely series of events is just that the Senate remains as is for 2 years, then there’s another vote.
Similarly, the House has a narrow, but bigger, Democrat advantage. There is redistricting in States that now have Republican leadership, expected to net 2 to 6 new Republican seats. But that’s not enough to change things, and it is far more likely to be 2 than 6. Once again, we’ve got an almost certain 2 year wait before any corrective action could be done by way of voting.
The DNC / Democrats / Progressives have embraced the Alt-Left / Far-Left of the Socialists, and as a result run the table on the House, Senate, and POTUS. Yes, it took “the usual” Communist Propaganda and “Control who counts the votes” (though now that was ‘what machines manufacture the votes’): BUT, it DID work and they DID ascend to power. Once tasted, that faux honey will not be spit out.
So in essence the Socialists Of America have achieved one of their stated objectives: Control of one of the two major political parties.
Now according to Marxist / Leninist / Stalinist doctrine, once you have control, you do EVERYTHING possible to make it permanent and to destroy the opposition. I do mean EVERYTHING. Oddly, reading the news, that looks like exactly what is being done. (Do note, this also occurred with the National Socialist German Workers Party in Germany prior to W.W.II)
So the Democrats are busy attacking and destroying anyone who dares to oppose them, criminalizing free speech, calling it a “hate crime” to question the validity of the election, and declaring anyone who wears a hard hat so Antifa can’t bash them on the head a “terrorist”. More or less as expected from the Communist Manifesto / Socialist doctrine & etc. POV.
Sidebar on “hate”: For things to make sense, they typically require an opposite. Light requires darkness to be understood. Up has down. Right has left. Man vs Woman. Old and young. So I ask you: What is a “love crime”? IMHO, there is no such thing as a “Hate Crime”. It is simply a marker of “P.C. Crime Enhancement”. It simply says that the Alt-Left / Radical Left wants to bash some more than others so plonks down “hate” in front of some action. Since The Left hates everyone else far more than everyone else hates at them (though they are busy fixing that…) ought not Leftism itself be labeled as “Hateful” and thus a “Hate Crime” against humanity? It has, after all, killed hundreds of millions over the decades…
More importantly, you can see that they are paranoid about their crimes. Forbidding any discussion of what they did to steal the election. Criminalizing anyone who questions them, their motives or actions. Then putting a minor army around their capitol and erecting fences and razor wire. Those are the actions of someone who knows the bulk of the actual vote was against them, and that they are usurpers of the throne. Afraid that the bulk of the country will rise up and eject them from their illegal occupation. They wear it on their faces and scream it in their intemperate voices. They are not confident, they do not feel We The People on their side backing them, they are AFRAID of the people. That is what a coup plotter feels, so promotes “cleansing’ and pogroms. Purges the military of opposing voices (as is happening now…)
They also chose to enshrine whatever mechanism put them into power as the one right and legal way of retaining it. This the move to force all the illegitimate vote stealing methods into law. Universal ballot harvesting, no I.D. allowed, print your own ballots, anyone can vote even illegal aliens, etc. etc. Also NO audit of the Dominion Vote Diddle Boxes.
Additionally, they have a major effort to bugger the Judiciary. To assure no other branch of the government can stand in the way of their coup. Expand the Supreme Court and pack it with Socialist / Progressive “judges”. Probably also expand the other courts for a similar packing. Having control of 2 of the three branches of government is not enough to enshrine them in power forever. They lust after the 3rd as well (despite it already being pretty much packed with left indoctrinated folks…)
What To Do?
This leads to a couple of questions:
1) Can they “get ‘er done” in 2 years?
2) Will any of the “moderate” Democrats choose to resist this Socialist makeover of their party and the nation? (Are there any “moderate” Democrats left?)
3) What will or can the Republicans do?
4) What, if anything, can an “average Joe or Jane” do?
I’m sure there’s more, but those are all I’m looking at here.
Based on prior histories, I think 2 years is more than enough time. It will, of course, depend a lot on what others do to resist this Socialist Coup, or Progressive Purge. Will the “moderate” Democrats discipline their Party Members in some way? Will Republicans grow a spine and discover America needs them?
Sadly, I think the answer to those 2 is “No”. Democrats have already been happy to let the DNC run roughshod over their Primaries. Putting up the Horrible Hillary with the only opposition being a “chosen to fail” wimp. Then stealing the nomination from Bernie to anoint Biden The Demented and taking Camel-A (who Tulsi bashed to low single digits in the primary, which got Tulsi sidelined by the DNC…) and promoting her to the anointed one VP slot. No, the Democrat membership just is along for the ride and has no influence over the DNC,really.
Similarly, Republicans have about a 50 year history of being door-mats. Reagan was the last guiding light. They are well trained at gradual retreat under fire. It’s what they do.
Maybe someone else can see some Real Americans on the Democratic Party side, but I can’t. We’ve got a power mad corrupt leadership that loves to “lie for effect” and that, based on the size of their rapidly growing bank accounts in office, looks to be entirely in it for the money and power. Not for the People, nor for the USA.
Maybe someone else can see a growing Spine in the RNC, but I can’t. I see a very few Republicans standing up for “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” – and largely being derided for it. The bulk of the Republicans in office seem happy to sign off on bills “to find out what is in it” and spend $Trillions at a toss with $Billions going to fund their opposition via NGOs and more. As long as they keep their seat and maybe get a few crumbs for their side. I can’t see them being the source of rescue.
So all I see in the Republican future is more “rear guard retreat” along with a few of the worst being “primaried” all while Rome Burns and the Chinese Barbarians & Friends of the CCP raid the place for loot.
Which leaves us at the Average Joe & Jane.
Frankly, all I can see, for me, is a “Going Galt” moment. I’m already more a “leach on the system” than net contributor. (Well, really, I’ve contributed far more in the past than I’ll ever get back in the future, but we’re talking about right here right now). I’m on Social Security and Medicare. Net draining the system. I have no gainful employment, so pay little to no income tax.
I can easily just sell out, squirrel away the assets, move to a reasonably backwater place that will be last on the “eat me” list, and wait for my own personal end. Do nothing to help the system.
But what about a younger group? Folks in their 20s to 30s with a (rapidly fading) future to build, families to raise and teach? “Going Galt” is much harder for them. Can they effectively do anything to prevent the collapse into a Socialist Hell? Is there anything anyone can do, what with the Vote now irrelevant as it is Machine Controlled (and on track to be fully pwned by the DNC forever), the Judiciary up for a good Reaming Stem to Stern, and opposition voices being either silenced to legally defined as “Terrorists” for asking if the election was really valid and maybe, just maybe, a bit of audit would prove the Democrats right…
I don’t know.
I do know that the history on this is not good. Armed rebellion typically fails, and if not, the resultant Civil War destroys the place. Attempts at political rebellion result in purges and pogroms. The killing fields of Cambodia and the millions dead under Stalin come to mind. Kulak (poor small farmers) resistance resulted in millions of starved out and dead Kulaks. Just look at Venezuela as the most recent pattern. Currency collapsed. 1/2 the population left the country. Economy in a shambles. Yet “somehow” the vote always ends up 95%+ for the existing Dictator-in-fact (regardless of who that is…)
Pessimistic? Yes. Then again, the history on this is pretty clear. It always ends badly once the Socialist / Communist / Progressives gain absolute power.
Can America be “different this time”? Perhaps, but I’m not seeing the mechanism for it. Certainly violence will fail or “destroy the village in order to save it”. Political avenues have been foreclosed via the Automated Vote Stealing and Silencing Of The Lambs via censorship. The Republicans had a dozen opportunities to avoid this outcome, and at every turn chose this path; so I don’t see them as much use or much opposition.
If you do have a Rosy Vision, please feel free to show it. (And show how it isn’t just a fantasy but has some ‘legs’ in reality…) All I can see as some kind of hope is that Biden so screws up things so fast that before China can complete the Rape Of DC, local governments (counties, States) start recalling and replacing folks so as to thwart the worst of it. Or perhaps a Democrat or 2 in the Senate looks at the America They Love and realize that there’s one big hope for it, a Republican Senate until the election cycle can turn again. But I fear both of those lack my requested “show how it isn’t just a fantasy”…
